Our History

The Barry Plant story begins in 1958 when a small company named EJ Doherty Real Estate opened its doors in Coburg.

The first Barry Plant office opened in Templestowe over 20 years later, in 1979. Its founder, Barry Plant, is still a director of the company today.

Both companies earned reputations for consistently achieving enviable results and in 1999 the 15 Barry Plant offices merged with EJ Doherty’s 16 offices.

The company was reborn as Barry Plant Doherty. Between July 1999 and December 2005, Barry Plant Doherty doubled in size to 60 offices, covering a significant slice of metropolitan Melbourne.

In early 2006 we expanded into regional Victoria, dropped ‘Doherty’, and became Barry Plant Real Estate once more.

In 2008 we opened our first interstate office on the Gold Coast and in 2016, our first South Australian office.

We currently have a network of around 80 offices, each dedicated to achieving the best result for your property.

In late 2012 Barry Plant was awarded the title of Number One real estate group in Australia for Sales by Real Estate Business magazine – an honour based on our sales efficiency.

In August 2013, Barry Plant won the title of Australian Property Management Company of the Year at the inaugural Australian Real Estate Awards. This award, combined with the Real Estate Business award gave us the unique distinction of being the top company in Australia for both sales and property management.
