Why Barry Plant

Decades of award-winning service.

Great results aren’t enough. Barry Plant knows a positive experience is just as important.

The Barry Plant Group was established in 1979 and has since grown into Victoria’s strongest real estate network, with around 80 offices throughout Melbourne, the Mornington and Bellarine Peninsulas, regional Victoria and in Queensland. Barry Plant sells around 1,000 properties a month and has over 32,000 properties under rental management.

However, we realise that the size and success of our group isn’t your only consideration when choosing us as your real estate agent.

You want to be sure that you are dealing with experienced, ethical professionals. Our team consists of hard-working people who are supported by regular training programs, the most up-to-the-minute market information, and state-of-the-art technology.

Every office that has been with the Barry Plant Group for at least six months has achieved Highly Recommended status in the Australian Achiever Awards for Excellence in Customer Service. We are the only large real estate group to have achieved this 100% success rate – twelve years in a row!

Barry Plant Real Estate offers a professional, dedicated team of experts who are experienced, well trained and well supported.


Acknowledged as Australia's No. 1 real estate group for sales.

In December 2012, Barry Plant was assessed by Real Estate Business magazine as the number one real estate group in Australia for sales success.


More buyers.

When you entrust the sale of your home to us, your property will be offered for sale across our whole, Victoria-wide network – that’s every Barry Plant office, not just the office you’re dealing with.

Your property is exposed to a larger number of potential buyers making it easier for them to find your home. Unlike many other real estate networks, we have an “As of Right” sales policy that actively encourages every salesperson in every office to find a buyer for your home.

Barry Plant properties offered for sale online, receive around 4 million visits per month from buyers searching the internet for homes for sale.

Our service commitment.

We have a Service Commitment in place which can be signed by you and the Barry Plant agent you have appointed to handle your sale – it confirms our total commitment to providing you with the highest level of professionalism and the best quality services at all times.



No one’s arguing downsizing can sometimes be a confronting experience. It needs to be done at a pace you’re comfortable with, and when it is, many people are growing to find that downsizing your home and life is something to look forward to, plan and ultimately enjoy when the time comes. 
Our real estate partners, Barry Plant can help you start to look into the downsizing process with no obligation or commitment to sell. If you’re curious about what your home could be worth, submit your application for a FREE, no obligation market appraisal.

Experience tells us that one of the most critical aspects of the sales process is effective communication between all parties.

We give priority to providing you with regular updates throughout the selling process. These updates will be in the form that best suits you. That may be in person, by phone, in writing, email, letter or fax or a combination of all of these.

We encourage you to contact us at any time if you have any queries, no matter how trivial they may seem to you.

Strategic, targeted marketing.

It is important to support any sale with a well-planned marketing campaign which promotes unique characteristics and reaches maximum buyers.

Marketing must communicate features which will appeal to buyers and give the owner every opportunity to obtain the best result. We will work with you to develop an effective, innovative marketing strategy – including a comprehensive advertising schedule – designed to reach the broadest number of buyers and generate the maximum response for the most economical cost to you.

Every home for sale is featured on our popular website barryplant.com.au. Buyers can receive an email every time a property matching their criteria is lodged on the site and any buyers can access the details of your property 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Accurate market appraisals.

Our agents have an intimate knowledge of property prices in your area. Our market appraisals take all local benefits into account, whether your property is surrounded by the best parks, restaurants, schools and transport.
