Brilliant operator. Professional, friendly, helpful & honest to a tee.
I had seen Chris Leonard in a few of his property sale videos & always thought he came across well. Dealing with him in person was no exception. He has always made himself available to us on relatively short notice & been very accommodating. He never made us feel like we were an inconvenience or burden. CL is an all round good bloke, is transparent & was even great with the kids! His knowledge of the area & property was second-to-none. He was not arrogant or pushy in the slightest. Definitely someone my wife & I could have a beer with. Thanks Chris!

Outstanding Client Contact
Chris Leonard is the most proactive and professional real estate agent that I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I have bought and sold many properties throughout Victoria and used a lot of different agents and Chris is by far the best I have found. Chris was informative, understanding and thorough from our initial contact right through to a successful sale. Despite the challenges we were all facing throughout the covid 19 pandemic Chris ensured I was regularly updated throughout the process of marketing my property and always very prompt to respond to my queries and enquiries from potential buyers which resulted in a successful outcome for all concerned. Thank you Chris. You're the best!

Great Team to Sell property
From the beginning of my engagement with Chris & the team at PRD, it was a pleasure to deal with them. They were extremely professional and friendly during the entire process. Chris went above & beyond to sell my property in just 3 weeks during COVID-19 for a good price. He remained accessible during whole process and updated us regularly with the number of inspections, interested parties, bidding & final sale. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris & his team to sell your property.
Julie Craig; 21 Cummins Street, Beaufort
Great to deal with and an excellent communicator.
We first came in contact with Chris when looking for our own "Escape to the Country". We found his easy going country nature very welcoming, but also very professional in his approach. What impressed me the most about Chris was his ability to remember names and what you were looking for in a property, combined with his excellent communication skills. At all stages with the purchase of our new home he balanced his responsibility to his client, but kept us informed of the process. Simply put you get what see with Chris and that's what we liked. We would recommend him to anyone either searching for, or looking to sell a home.

Chris Is Your Man!
My wife and I first met Chris at an open home in our local area some time before we were even thinking of selling. When the time finally came to put the house on the market we knew that Chris was our man. From the beginning Chris made us feel completely at ease, there was no pressure and nothing was too much trouble. He was respectful of our wishes and kept us up to date through out whole the process. We were so impressed with the advertising campaign, from the wonderful words Chris wrote about our home to the video he put together along with the professional photographers. At every step we new that Chris was on our side. He would even pop the kettle on and make us a coffee!! As busy working parents it was so refreshing to deal with such a genuine and kind bloke. If your selling a rural property, Chris is your man!!
Hayden & Yasmin Ellis; 5 Station Street, Scarsdale
Legend Agent
Anyone wanting to buy a property I would recommend trying to find your dream home through PRD Ballarat. Chris was a fantastic agent who helped us out in buying our very first home. Matt is also a fantastic agent who helped along the way. We have had a few let downs from other agents recently and to then find something with PRD really showed us just how a great real estate should be. Professional but still down to earth like you have known him your whole life. So thanks again Chris for all your help and support we both appreciate everything you did for us.

Very Happy Vendors!
We chose PRD because they had sold so many properties in our area. We know why - Chris is fantastic! His knowledge of our area, professionalism and most importantly, accurate price quoting is why we sold in two weeks! We were rapt with the marketing campaign, using a combination of drone and professional photography fully captured the character of our property and brought many more prospective buyers through than we could have hoped for. Chris was accessible and approachable throughout and did a brilliant job negotiating on our behalf. We couldn't be happier with the result and completely attribute that to Chris and the team at PRD. Highly recommended!
Christopher & Susie Schmidt; 20 Church Street, Mount Egerton
PRD Chris Leonard
From the moment we contacted Chris at PRD to value our home, list and settlement, the journey has been so easy.

We have been using Chris Leonard for over 10 years to sell our properties. Chris Leonard is a testament to PRDnationwide. Chris recently sold another property for us in Gordon.

Chris is driven, dedicated and focused on providing the best result for the seller. We are extremely happy with the selling price achieved and his constant communication throughout the process. Thanks Chris!
Simon Carey; 10A Tennyson Street, Gordon

Judith Jesser; Lot 1 Ormiston Road, Stafforshire Reef
We were thrilled with the service provided by PRD when selling our home. From the very start, Andreana & Chris had our best interests at heart. We felt listened to & supported throughout the whole process. Deciding to go to Auction felt a little risky at first but Andreana's & Chris' knowledge of the current market gave us such confidence and the result was overwhelming; we would never had imagined we could get such a wonderful price for our modest home. Andreana & Chris were both excellent communicators to work with & were so respectful of our family life during open houses and leading into the Auction. We cannot thank both of them enough for their professionalism, advice & attention to detail. Chris is a pretty fantastic Auctioneer too! We have already recommended PRD & especially Andreana & Chris - to many family & friends and will continue to do so! Thanks guys!
Nathan & Maria Cahir; 4 Mitchell Court, Soldiers Hill

Chris sold us our home 17 years ago and has kept in touch with us over the years. When it came time to put our house on the market it was an easy decision to choose Chris. He has kept us up to date through the sale process and has gone out of his way to assist us with any queries or concerns we may had during the process. We would highly recommend Chris to anyone thinking of putting their property on the market.

Fantastic Service
Really happy with how Chris managed the whole process! We are glad we brought through PRD and if we were to sell or buy again we would be happy to engage the team to assist us!
Ben Brook; 35 Evergreen Way, Gordon
Great Service
Chris was awesome, he called and asked about what made us tick which ended up being important when negotiating the sale. We were not able to view the land and he sent me a video of the property without being asked to do so, he then sent our keys with no hassle. Amazing service.
Damian & Cheryl Collins; 15 Gibb Street, Rokewood

Dean and Asta Evans; 397 Browns Road Dereel
Diligent and trustworthy
Have bought and sold through Chris a couple of times now. We have complete trust in his knowledge and honesty. Even when he has been on holiday he has made himself available to discuss business. We would always recommend him to others wishing to sell or buy.
Michael Briggs & Rosemary Dalton; 245 Howards Road, Wattle Flat
Caring and Positive Agent
Chris Leonard sat and discussed our potential end-year sale of our home and 40 acre property back in April and waited patiently till we were ready to proceed. At all times he has been patient, positive and caring at what was an emotional time for us. He promised a figure well over an initial 'private' off-market, offer and achieved even higher than that figure; "though I will respect your wishes if you wish to proceed with this offer now". He negotiated with several prospective purchasers while we were interstate and I feel that both parties were happy with the final outcome. We are happy to recommend Chris to others to work on their behalf. Yours sincerely, Frances and Joseph Sensi
Joseph Sensi & Frances Sensi; 665 Smythesdale-snake valley Road, Hillcrest
Chris really knows his country properties.
Chris did alot of preparation for the auction of our property. He kept us fully informed over the whole campaign so that on auction day we knew exactly how the auction would unfold. Having this knowledge and an agent that knows his stuff gave us a great result on sale day. Very happy with Chris's efforts and he makes the whole process easy :)
Tristan & Narelle Cooney; 2955 Old Melbourne Road, Dunnstown
Good honest bloke
Chris is very prompt, easy to deal with and knows his area very well
Christopher Dickson; 68 Urquhart Street, Gordon
Extremely helpful agent
We appreciate Chris’s efforts to sell our home, given we are off grid and dual occupancy with combustion stove, so we were definitely more likely to have a limited purchase market. Chris not only managed to sell our home but also achieved a result that we were happy with. Thank you to all at PRD who were involved in the sale of our property.
Francis Jacobsen & Joan Barber; 414 Monteville Lane, Ballan

Great Agent
Thank you Andreana and Chris for the caring and professional way you handled the sale of our property at 805 Havelock Street over the past couple of months. You were both very eager and happy to show clients through in any type of weather and at any time of day or evening. The house was heated before clients came providing an ambiance that showed the house off to its full potential and helped us to obtain many offers within the first week and subsequently arranging a quick sale. Barry and I would be happy to recommend you to all our friends and family.
Barry & Dorothy Sheehan; 805 Havelock Street, Soldiers Hill

Instant Success With Chris Leonard
Our house was on the market for 11 months with another real estate agency and we had received little interest from potential buyers. After this time, we decided it was time to make a change and made contact with Chris Leonard from PRD Ballarat. When Chris came on board, it was like a large weight had been lifted off our shoulders. His constant communication, status updates, honesty, recommendations and courtesy all made the process a much easier one. Chris' drive to make a sale and putting in 110% at all times, resulted in our house selling in just five weeks. If only we had have found him sooner! I must mention that we have sold other property through agents in Ballarat and while these were not bad experiences, we had never experienced Chris' level of service before. Chris' professionalism and great nature is an asset to PRD. We have given Chris more of our business and will continue to in the future. I have and will always recommend Chris to others. I wish him all the best.

We would like to pass our sincerest thanks to Chris Leonard for the great assistance he has provided in our Biggest Morning Tea held Friday the 29 of May 2009. Specifically, Chris conducted an auction, selling a large number of items which has been donated by many local businesses and individuals. He was not only very efficient but also extremely funny and entertaining. Due in no small part to Chris' efforts, we were able to raise in excess of $2300 the day for the Cancer Council. Please accept our appreciation for the opportunity we have had in benefiting from Chris' talent and skills. I have known Chris both personally and professionally for over 10 years and am in no doubt that he must be extremely valuable to the PRDnationwide organisation. Again, thank Chris and best wishes to you.

Brenden and the team are very professional. They know the business of selling and amazed me with their follow up and attention to detail. I have used Brenden's services twice now and would not hesitate in using him again or providing a glowing report to all who ask. I sold and purchased again this time and was introduced to Chris Leonard in our purchase. Nothing was too much trouble and he was helpful and courteous. The team at PRDnationwide care about their customers not just sales quotes. Thank you.
Samantha Harris; 7 Winter Street, Gordon
We found your agents totally professional at all times. We found we could ring Chris at anytime and did not feel like we were bothering him. They were upfront about their fees, so we knew what to expect. Very happy with the service. We would recommend them to anyone. Thank you PRDnationwide. P.S They also gave us a realistic quote for our sale. P.P.S Thank you for our gift voucher.

Many thanks to Chris & staff at PRDnationwide with the recent sale of our property at Snake Valley. The service & friendly manner in which it was completely was excellent. Thank You Chris.

I had no hesitation in engaging PRDnationwide to market my three properties at Scarsdale. I purchased my properties through Chris Leonard six years prior to selling. Being able to talk with a person who knew me and recognised the amount of work I had done to the property over the years made it an easy pathway. I respected Chris as a person. I could easily engage in discussion or debate and know he would listen and consider my point of view and needs. My choice of agent was rewarded with all three properties being sold quickly and appropriate prices gained. I wish to sincerely thank Chris and staff at PRDnationwide for their respect, courtesy and patience. Their dedication and hard work was exemplary. Thank you.

If you need to make some dough, we recommend you give Chris a go. His availability is twenty four/seven, the pitch sounds like real estate heaven. But texting, he won't want to know!
Denise and I would like to thank you for the great help that you provided using buying the rural property at Pootilla. Your ability to organise things with a smile, like repairs, changing service providers, settlement etc, was much appreciated. Your assistance at every turn made the purchaser very easy and pleasurable. We have been telling our friends about your great service and we would be gladly recommend you to any buyer or seller.
Nigel & Denise Fitzpatrick; 90 Kierces Road, Pootilla
Having both bought and sold property through PRDnationwide, we have been fortunate enough to experience the full spectrum of their professional services. In both instances we have been impressed with the high level of customer service and the pride they clearly take in this. Again, in both instances, we have had the pleasure of dealing predominately with Chris Leonard, an agent of the utmost professionalism and calibre. He is never 'off the clock', his customer service is exceptional and he truly cares for his clients. Nigel and I thank you wholeheartedly Chris, for all you have done to assist us. In general, we unreservedly recommend and praise the exceptional service PRDnatinowide offers. We couldn't have asked for better. Thank you.

After marketing our house unsuccessfully with another agency, PRDnationwide provided a new and positive outlook for our property. We dealt with Chris Leonard and Matt Edwards and sold our house within a month. The boys were honest and hard working. The communication we received from Matt, who dealt with most of our potential buyers was second to none. We were involved with all aspects of selling our property and guided with professional and honest opinions and strategies. We will be using PRDnationwide when selling future properties and will recommend Matt and Chris to all out of town sellers.
Mick & Jodie-Lee Champan; 189 Pitfield Road, Scarsdale
Chris, We cant thank you and your team enough on the effort that was given in selling our property. You were very professional and made the process very easy and stress free for us. You always made that time to chat and always kept us informed about the progress you were making. We would highly recommend you and your team to anyone looking to sell their property. We hope that the new owners enjoy the house as much as we did. Thank you again!

l have found Chris Leonard to be helpful and effective at his job and widely respected. Thanks for the service.
Stephen Rodgers; 265 Creswick Clunes Road, Clunes
As usual, communication was fantastic with Chris. We were very happy with the service, price and attitude. Changing sale tactics worked great for us and we were consulted regularly about the changes and the market. Great job Chris, keep up the good work.

Since contacting PRDnationwide on the sale of our property, we found them most helpful and friendly and we were very happy with the outcome. Thank you guys.

WOW: - what a relief to have real personal care, understanding and support at such a stressful time. Every assistance was offered and I very much appreciated the after settlement follow up. PRDnationwide (Ballarat) has changed my mind on real estate agents, especially due to and with many thanks to Chris Leonard. I would definitely recommend their services. Happy customer.
Beverley O'Brien; 25 Gillespie Street, Linton
Thanks again for the assistance. I am most impressed with the professionalism displayed by you and your company.

Dennis & I, Zoe, have been very happy with Chris Leonard. Always warm, never pushy, punctual and responsive. He had a lay back approach but an eye for what we were looking for. So greatful he presented 46 W H! But sorry Brenden - you lose brownie points; you didn't ring back.
Zoe & Dennis Ernestine; 46 Old Western Highway, Gordon
We put our house on the market about 3 & a 1/2 years ago. We went with 'Rayner' from Ballan. In 2 years we had 3 inspections, no calls back, no-one bothered to tell us anything. So they got the flick! We were a bit apprehensive to try again, but we had to sell! So we chose PRDnatinowide Ballarat, Chris Leonard came out to talk to us. We were impressed with him; he said "I'll stick with you till we sell". He did and we sold within 12 months. We had plenty of inspections, lots of feedback, we never felt alone. PRDnationwide worked for us and they worked hard, especially Chris Leonard. We are very grateful to them, I'm glad we made that choice!
Steve & Judy Troy; 1048 Bungeeltap Road, Mount Wallace
We would not hesitate in recommending Chris Leonard and his team at PRDnationwide to anyone interested in purchasing or selling real estate in the Ballarat area. Chris was impressive from the start. He met us late on a Saturday afternoon, as he was busy with various open houses and other appointments that day (always a good sign for prospective sellers). Due to his extensive local knowledge, he was able to accurately forecast who our buyer would be and what price we could realistically expect. Chris kept in regular contact via email and phone, making timely suggestions during the course of the campaign and followed every aspect of the sale through to completion.

We received excellent service in regards to the purchase of our property. All our queries/questions were answered in a timely manner, which was great. We were kept informed and followed up by PRD staff when required. Very happy.
Mark Treneman & Vanessa Cornwell; 14 Carney Street West, Mount Egerton
We would like to thank Chris for the wonderful experience in purchasing our new home. He has been generous with his precious time and very sensitive to our needs. We also found Chris to be polite and genuine with a 'can do' attitude and no query too hard to resolve.

I would like to congratulate Kristy Hadler and Chris Leonard on the recent sale of my property at 6 Vowles Street, Skipton. Their courteous and helpful manner in all our dealings was much appreciated. It made the sale a much more enjoyable occasion with their professional handling.
Patricia Bowman; 6 Vowles Street, Skipton
Dear Chris Leonard, it was a pleasure doing business with you. The communications were clear from the moment of pre purchase to purchasing the home. Your manner and communications were exceptional and I can see why you are in real estate. I would not hesitate doing business with PRD in the future.
Halina Sztynda & Leo McDonald; 54 Clyde Street, Linton
Chris Leonard assisted us with the purchase of our new home and we could not have been happier with all aspects of the purchase. Great experience, thank you very much.

Dear Mr Jens, RE: Chris Leonard. Over the past few years my husband, Andrew and l have been on the hunt for a rural property that has been suited for horses. We have been peaking and viewing properties with Chris Leonard and what Andrew and l have both found is that you could not ask for someone better. He has always gone above and beyond his duty as a sales person. We did end up finding us a home which sadly wasn't through Chris or your company however, he was very happy for us when we informed him....and yes he will be getting an invite to our home for a BBQ with his family. When the time comes that we want to sell, we will be using Chris for the sale. If we know of anyone else that is about to put their house on the market we will be highly recommending him too! Chris Leonard has always shown true professionalism with his job and is always well presented and pleasant, just simply a true gentleman!

We would like to offer our sincere appreciation to your Real Estate Agent, Chris Leonard. His knowledge of the local area & guidance throughout the entire sales process was of great assistance in our decision to purchase our new home. During our first impromptu & lengthy discussion, he answered all of our many & varied questions relating to the area of Gordon, the local facilities and the homes on the market. He took the time to listen and made sure we understood his answers, always offering us good advice. Chris has an extremely approachable demeanor and always available to show us each property without delay. Nothing was ever too much trouble. He continuously kept us informed & readily accepted our decision to change our mind, even after putting in the time & effort to show us the same properties more than once. It has been a pleasure to have Chris acting on our behalf & commend his help & expertise during our search for our new home. It has been a stress free & thoroughly rewarding journey.
Russell & Joanne Barron; 53 Nightingale Street, Gordon
From the very first contact we found Chris Leonard to be very friendly and helpful. No task was too difficult for him and he met our requests in a timely way. We are very happy with our dealings with Chris. We would also like to make special mention of Kristy Hadler for her administrative assistance in finalising the deal. The timing for the closure of the deal was very tight as we were going on holidays the next day. With the deal being settled very late in the afternoon and Chris coming to meet us late to get the documents signed. All hiccups sorted thanks to Chris & Kristy. Rhonda & Trevor Davis
Rhonda & Trevor Davis; 206 Ballan - Greendale Road, Greendale
Thank you Chris for the great help you gave us when selling our home. I really appreciated your continued contact with us and keeping us up to date. Thanks too to Matt for his part in the sale. I have found PRD very professional in the sale of our home. The team effort was superb and I have great confidence in recommending PRD to anyone thinking of selling. For service, attention to detail, great communication and making things easy I couldn't have asked for more.
