Testimonials

Don is a champion!
Don is a champion! He is honest, reliable, and highly professional. He only showed us properties that ticked our criteria. And he found us the house that was exactly that we wanted. We were so happy with ALL his work, so much so, that we asked him to sell our home. His communication skills, expertise and love for his work in real estate really shone through. A gentleman in all ways who is respectful of his clients listening intently to their wishes. We highly highly recommend Don and the Team at PRD who worked so hard for us. Thank you Don for finding us the home that we were exactly looking for.

Sale Of My House

Review For 18 Sayle Street
Recently we made the decision to sell our wonderful house in Sebastopol through PRD realestate. We new that it was vital, right from the start to choose the correct agent to handle the sale of our property, and I’m happy to say that Don Hanlon and the team at PRD came through with flying colours. Right from our very first meeting with both Don and Kiara we felt a high level of confidence that we were dealing with professionals who were keen to realise results and were mindful of the responsibility of handling our most precious asset. Don explained the process involved in the selling of our house and was very receptive to our numerous question. We were blown away on our first open house which resulted in around 18 groups of prospective buyers going through our property. This entire process was completely managed in an orderly fashion, with an emphasis that was both mindful of our personal property and respectful of our house. I’m delighted to confirm that from this very first inspection we were able to sell our property for a price that met our expectations. I must also add that we were really impressed by the online marketing page for our house which displayed a number of images that presented our residence in a more personalised and stylish way, rather than the standard generic type of photographs associated with the industry. We both started this journey with our fare share of apprehension and emotional attachment regarding our home, but I can say without a doubt now, that we made the right choice when we engaged PRD to handle the sale of our property.
Marian and Ashley Smith; 18 Sayle Street, Sebastopol
Friendly and Efficient Service
It was a pleasure to use Don at PRD to sell our property. Don and his team are always friendly and available at all times when needed. I would highly recommend them.
Greg & Iwona Woodruff; 7/6 Warratta Avenue, Delacombe
Excellent Personal & Professional Care
Don worked diligently to find the right buyer for the required asking price. Don treated me and the property with the greatest respect. Don is honest and trustworthy, a man of his word. I would recommend him highly as a man of good character and honour.
Trish Lopes; 2 Lynne Court, Delacombe
Great Agent With Extensive Knowledge Of The Market
It was such a pleasure to deal with Don. His knowledge of the Ballarat market was extensive and the advice he gave us in preparing the property for sale was spot on. He kept us informed at all times via text, phone calls and email during the sale process. The outcome exceeded our expectations, however Don was always confident that we would achieve this sale price. I would highly recommend Don Hanlon to anyone thinking of engaging a real estate agent.
Les & Glamis Baldock; 9 Dermot Street, Wendouree
Knowledgeable and Experienced
From our first meeting with Don, we felt extremely comfortable in his knowledge and expertise of the market and the strategies needed to deliver a great result for us. Don had a realistic approach which was appreciated with a young family, managing a build and a small business. We were kept informed each step of the way with constant feedback. Experience really matters in selling homes and Don and his team certainly used that to provide us with a terrific service and final result. We would happily recommend PRD to family and friends.
Mr & Mrs Grant; 8 The Gums, Mount Clear

Highly Recommended
We highly recommend Don Hanlon and PRDnationwide Ballarat to anyone looking to sell their home. We found Don very professional and he made the entire process easy and stress free. The videos and photos taken of our home were very professional and of a high quality. Overall the entire experience was quick and easy and with minimum fuss. Don managed to sell the house after only one open home. Don made regular contact with us to ensure we were kept up to date throughout the whole process. We would like to thank Don for his commitment to providing us with exceptional service and would have no hesitation in recommending him and the team at PRDnationwide Ballarat to any one considering buying or selling a home.

Honest, Skilled & Reliable! No Nonsense!
I have been fortunate enough to work with Don twice, both as a buyer and a seller. The best thing about working with Don is the peace of mind. Buying and selling come with their own stresses and Don is an expert at providing you with the confidence you need, to know that everything is on track. If I have the opportunity to buy or sell again in Ballarat, I would not hesitate to give him a buzz. Highly recommend!

Professional & Passionate Agent
Don Hanlon has sold two properties for me now and on both occasions his warm approachable and understanding manner was such a support to me during a challenging time. He kept in regular contact even sometimes just to say hello and see how you are doing at your end of things. He has such a great sense of humor which i very much appreciated and his ability to stay focused on our shared plan was out standing.

Thank You For Your Commitment!
Don impressed us from the first time we met him when looking to purchase a home. So much so that we felt he was the perfect fit to sell out home. Don's tenacity, reliability, professionalism, commitment to us and his constant feedback on the progress of the sale gave us a great sense of ease and comfort. We thank him for his service to us and would highly recommend him. Thank you Don!
Lindsay and Janice Parfrey; 7 Malakoff Street, Newington
A Great Collaboration
Don Hanlon played a vital role in our recent property sale. The situation was unique in selling a complicated site to wind up a deceased estate. Don not only stuck with us as the journey progressed over a longer period than expected, he also helped us make decisions on the property that had deeper implications, saving us time and cost. Ultimately, Don brought the right buyers to the deal for a very satisfactory outcome. Full marks to Don and his team for tenacity, reliability and integrity.

Dear Don, Casey and the team at PRD, We wish to thank you for the very professional way in which you arranged the sale of our house in Errard Street South. It was very satisfying that you managed a sale before auction at an appropriate price. We have no hesitation in recommending PRD real estate to another vendor or purchaser.
Len & Lyn Hallet; 306A Errard Street South, Ballarat Central
I am delighted to report Don Hanlon managed to quickly sell my property for the asking price. I have been particularly impressed by his enthusiasm and commitment to achieve a stunning result and I would highly recommend him to anyone listing a property for sale. Further he was assisted by Casey Horgan as coordinator who ensured all the necessary documentation was in place to facilitate the sale. I have no hesitation in recommending Don and the PRD team.

Managed The Sales Process Well
Thanks Don for being very professional through the sales process, much appreciated.
Cade Arnell; 1007 Dana Street, Ballarat Central
I was impressed with Don's level of follow up and his communication. He was able to fit me in for a viewing at short notice, on what was an already busy day for him. Not being from the area itself, Don was able to give me a little local insight as well. I would recommend people to use your firm in the future and Don Hanlon in particular. P.S. I was also quite impressed with the above and beyond efforts of both Kiara & Casey.
Trevor Whitling; 3/199 Yarrowee Street, Sebastopol
Fantastic Job From Start To Finish
Don really took charge of the sale and guided the family through the whole process. Don and the team did what they said they would do and it resulted in a sale within days of being marketed.
Andrew Ferguson; 825-829 Darling Street, Redan
Highly Recommend
We couldn't speak more highly of the service we received from Don, Dean and the team at PRD. Our house sold in 6 days but most of all the communication through the whole process was fantastic. They really made the process easy.
Tim & Nicole Simpson; 8 Carnaby Way, Canadian
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Don Hanlon for his awesome work in selling our Dad's property at 508 Gillies Street, Wendouree. It was only on the market for 3 weeks and was sold for above the expected price. Don's communication was impeccable, keeping my sister and I in the loop for the whole process. Obviously his experience in the industry shone through, negotiating with the buyers to maximise a final price. Our dad has recently gone into aged care and we needed to fund this through the sale of the house. It made this transitional time for our family easier and more relaxed. We cannot thank him enough.
Sharon Bosworth; 508 Gillies Street, Wendouree
I would like to say thank you to Don and the team at PRD Nationwide for working tirelessly and effortlessly to ensure that we got the results we desired therefore I thank you a lot. God bless everyone at PRDnationwide and I will put everything in God’s hand. Amen in Jesus’ name. Amen

Sue Abbs; 22 Cinnamon Drive, Lake Gardens
Don has been most helpful during the process of purchasing the premises. I am especially grateful to him for his support while I was sorting out NBN problems, including registration of the new address with Google Maps and the Ballarat City Council. I am most grateful.
M.J. Taylor; Lot 5, 620 Morres Street, Ballarat East
I would like to provide some feedback on the performance and conduct of one of your Residential Consultants, Don Hanlon. We have just purchased a property in Sebastopol and under some unique circumstances, which we created. However, Don has been the absolute professional throughout the sale over the past six days. (This is the time we took for the entire sale process.) His diligence in providing information and further answers to our questions and his prompt response time never kept us waiting or wondering. The fact that we have never met face to face did not influence his conduct or performance. It was his professionalism and determination to understand our situation that facilitated the process both efficiently and effectively. Unlike other agents we have tried to work with in Ballarat, Don was straight forward, accurate with his advice and information and he remained customer focussed – for both vendor and purchaser – and ensured we were enabled throughout the entire process. Don’s willingness to effect the sale called for some extra work, including dealing with some less desirables in the legal fraternity, but he maintained his professionalism and gained the outcomes we required. We are most appreciative of his efforts and unwavering support throughout our purchase. Congratulations on having such a remarkable person on your team.
Damien
Very Professional & Knowledgable

Mark & Amanda Drew; 417 Richards Street, Canadian
Fantastic Agent
My sister and I sold our Dad's house with Don and are absolutely thrilled with the service and expertise he provided. Before, during and after the sale Don was always in contact, keeping us updated constantly. The house was sold after being on the market for only 3 1/2 weeks and we achieved a sale price over the top of our expected range. We would highly recommend Don as his knowledge of the market is outstanding. Thanks Don!
Alana Hatfield; 508 Gillies Street North, Wendouree
Best Agent I Have Ever Used
Don was fully aware of what we wanted to achieve in regards to sale price, and for the first time ever, having sold 7 other properties, I was not pressured as a vendor to adjust my price expectation.
Nick & Johannie Birt; 34 Hopetoun Street, Ballarat East

Clare & Colin Adams; 1/132 Spencer Street, Sebastopol
Don Hanlon helped my husband and I with the sale of 2 properties to buy our dream little house. He gave us father figure advice and helped us over and beyond with phone calls and getting the price we needed. Thank you Don. The girls in the office were great, Casey and the rental staff in Lisa. Well-done!
Mr & Mrs Romein; 3/512 York Street, Ballarat East
Thank you Don for making the sale of our rental property stress free. Don was with us every step of the way keeping us well informed throughout the process. Selling within two weeks and for the asking price - impressive!
Barry & Sally Hills; 9 Cuthberts Road, Alfredton
Thank you Don
Dear Don, I wanted to write to thank you and your team for the professionalism and dedication that you showed in the sale of our deceased mother's unrenovated property at 337 Lydiard St North, Soldiers Hill. Prior to engagement, you presented very useful advice and sensible estimates that did not seem to have been inflated simply in order to get our business. I felt very confident that this advice was sound and professional. Once engaged, you maintained excellent channels of communication with the four of us, despite none of us being local. At all times you provided us with a very good sense of the level of interest in the property. On auction day this enabled us to set the reserve price without any misgivings. It was clear that you ran a very successful marketing campaign, because on auction day, there was a very strong level of active interest and the reserve price ended up being exceeded by a very large and unexpected margin. It was a pleasure for all of us to have you and your team handle this sale in such a trouble free manner and with such an excellent outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of your firm to anyone wishing to sell real estate in Ballarat. Thank you again and yours sincerely, Robin Venables on behalf of Prue, Sue and Sally

Thorough & Straightforward. Great Communicator
Pleasure to recommend Don Hanlon. My dealings with Don were always straightforward and to the point. He was quickly able to determine my priorities meaning he didn't waste my time or his with incidentals. I was particularly impressed with how promptly he dealt with all matters. He is a very good communicator, thorough and straightforward. I was able to speak directly with him, knowing he would take my ideas and concerns on board. Highly recommended.
Billy Green; 3 Winter Street, Buninyong
Great Agent
Don really knows his stuff. He walked us through the current neighborhood comparable sales, thoughts on where our property fit and what's a best case scenario. Highly recommend his knowledge, professionalism and experience.
Brendan Mitchell; 27 Illana Street, Brown Hill
Couldn't Be Better
Don Hanlon guided us to a very successful sale, everything he advised turned out spot on, we couldn't be happier with Don's service and the auctioneer as well. Would be happy to recommend Don and PRD to anyone dealing in Real Estate in Ballarat.
Phillip & Anne Ford; 1142 Eyre Street, Newington
Quick Sale - Wendouree
We asked PRD's Don Hanlon to give us an appraisal on a family property in Wendouree recently and he advised a price range we could expect and stated that we wouldn't have any trouble selling it. Don was spot on. With one newspaper advertisement-spread coupled with an I-net listing and one open day, the house was sold. From initial appraisal to final settlement, 5 weeks. We were pretty impressed with the professionalism of Don and his team at PRD, they kept us completely up to speed with the progress of the property sale and certainly delivered. Only too happy to recommend them. John Anderson (Ballarat)
John Anderson; 33 College Street, Wendouree

Martin Anderson; 2008 Geelong Road, Mount Helen
Don Has Been Very Easy To Work With & He Has Been Professional In His Approach
Despite not getting anywhere near the price I was keen for (or was quoted, or what I paid for initially) I have been very pleased with Don's professional approach to the sale and his dedication to the task. He has also been very good in enabling me to purchase in the new townhouse development.
Ian Anderson; 24 Zoe Drive, Mount Helen
Terrific Agent With A Personal Touch
Can not fault Don's knowledge or help during the campaign. Very friendly and genuine.
Sebastian & Joanna Earle; 19 Munro Street, Alfredton
Very Impressed
I was so pleased with Don as my agent. My house was advertised at $375,000 - $385,000. Within 2 or 3 days, I had an offer for $375,000 and I was going to accept it. Don advised me to wait until we had an open house...we had a open house a few days later and had an offer for $390,000 which I accepted. Without his advice I would have taken the lower offer. The whole process only took a couple of weeks. Don was an excellent communicator answering my requests quickly. I was very impressed and would certainly use him again.
Barb Dally; 6 Lawrie Drive, Alfredton
Sale Of Family Home
Don was easy to deal with and made the sale for our family home a present experience. As we live in Melbourne Don handled the sale keeping us informed the whole way through the process. Always attentive and quick to inform us of any feedback. After every inspection or open day Don would advise us of the number of people that showed interest and where the home sat in the market. Once the home was sold Don assisted in discussions with both parties to ensure the transfer of property went through without any problems.
Ken Lindorff; 5 Boak Avenue, Mount Helen
Excellent Salesmanship
Don works with and for the vendor. Great advice and assistance in the selling process, and works tirelessly to help achieve a quick sale.
Jason Hope; 19 Menhennet Drive, Delacombe
Perseverence Pays Off
Don was like a dog with a bone and his determination to sell our property and get us back to Tasmania was admirable. Apart from all that he is a nice guy. His assistant Kiara was also helpful, efficient and friendly. Can highly recommend him as an agent.
Sue Young; 3 Carmichael Court, Sebastopol
A Quick Sale
We explained to Don that we knew we had to make a compromise between waiting for the best possible price and selling the property quickly and we did need to sell it quickly. Don had a buyer within a week and the buyer wanted to settle faster than our bank could handle. We had the outcome we wanted.
Maureen Cronin; 3/708 Gregory Street, Soldiers Hill
Only The Best Will Do
Honest, excellent follow up with myself as a vendor (and I had a lot of questions). Great after sales services, Don will not drop you like a hot cake once the deal is done. Highly recommended.

This Guy Knows His Stuff!
From appraisal to settlement Don was all over it and we felt as though we were in safe hands from the get go! Our first inspection was huge with 30 people through, Don handled with ease and kept us updated with offers and any interest on the property. Don managed to get the price we wanted and all under the time frame we had set! This guy knows his stuff and i will certainly be recommending him in the future! Thank you Don and the team at PRD.
Travis Rix; 6 Cecile Court, Canadian
Don Is The Best!
From the moment we met Don we knew that he had the experience, passion and industry knowledge to sell our house! We saw many agents ....but Don was the first to really be excited and see the potential in our home. We always knew that to get top dollar ....we needed someone else to be as passionate about our home as we were!
Luke & Sue Abbs; 8 Goldfield Court, Nerrina
Thanks Don
This is the second time we have used Don to purchase a property and the fist time for selling one, we have found Don to be approachable and friendly with a knack of knowing exactly what to do to get the best result for all parties. Any time we had a question or a concern Don was always available and happy to help . We were given a realistic evaluation of our property and were rewarded with a quick sale at a realistic price. In our opinion Don was the right man for the job and wouldn't hesitate to use his services again ! Thank you Don.
Colin & Muriel Lowther; 3/18 Romney Street, Wendouree

Rating Of Don Hanlon
Don Hanlon from PRD was very helpful in every way with the recent sale of my property in Mt Helen. From the outset he told me that he would always be available for discussion and advice. He was. Our phone and onsite meetings were always decisive and the final outcome was as good as could be expected in the present market climate. Many thanks Don.
Alan Mayhew; 9 Rosewood Court, Mount Helen
Respectful, Honest & Straight Forward
This was a particularly difficult undertaking for me due to a big life bump!! Don exudes credibility by delivering upon his word, therefore developing trust and confidence in this collaboration. He has an engaging personality and thorough work effort. What can I say ... Job superbly done!
Jill Brown; 12 Macarthur Park Boulevard, Miners Rest
Great Agent
Don was professional in every aspect of the process from beginning to conclusion of the sale. He kept me informed and acted promptly on my requests. I would recommend Don for all real estate needs, he knows his stuff. Great job Don.
Robert Fabre; 2/825 Brkly Street, Mount Pleasant
An Agent With Integrity
I could not rate Don Hanlon high enough. I sent an email inquiry to the PRD website expecting to wait days to be contacted. However, in less than two hours I received a call from Don Hanlon who had with him a complete history of the property, a full list of the recent sales within the area and an estimated evaluation. Needless to say I was more than impressed. From that moment I was convinced that Don Hanlon was a true professional and would be an outstanding agent. Which by all accounts he was. What impressed me most was that Don Hanlon was always true to his word. He replied promptly to emails, he always called after an open inspection giving me an honest update and he was available at any time. I was interstate at the time of sale and had tenants at the property. Don Hanlon was able to negotiate both my needs as a vendor and the needs and rights of the tenant. The tenant praised Don Hanlon's respectful and flexible approach and I was at all times confident that Don Hanlon would not create problems for me with the tenant agency. The property was sold quickly and I was happy with the price. Don Hanlon provided a number of different advertising options, and I believe between the right advertising tools and Don Hanlon's amazing skill was why I as a vendor was happy with the sale. An agent with integrity, who would have thought?
Bronte Maddaford; 238 Victoria Street, Ballarat East
We Were In Good Hands
Don was always highly professional, managing both the needs of ourselves as vendors, and those of the buyer. He had strong market knowledge, was always willing to discuss any concerns, and consistently planned ahead and trouble-shooted any issues. We've since recommended Don to others and would be happy to again.
Stuart Grubb & Kerry Foss; 23 Macarthur Park Boulevard, Miners Rest
Don Hanlon At PRD Ballarat
The recent marketing of our home in central Ballarat by PRD, & more specifically, by Don Hanlon, has proven to be a far less stressful process than we had been anticipating. From our first contact with Don, through the appraisal, marketing, sale & after-sale phases, communication has been honest, open and frequent. Don listened carefully to our requests and expectations and formulated a marketing strategy that attracted numerous potential buyers within our agreed price range. Don worked exceptionally hard during the Christmas holiday period to ensure that our home continued to attract the attention of qualified buyers. Following each inspection, Don provided us with prompt and realistic feedback, and within a matter of weeks we achieved an offer on our property that met our expectations in every way. We were delighted with Don's handling of our sale and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone considering in the Ballarat region. Many thanks to all at PRD for a job very well done.
Robert Gaston & Judith D'Ombrain; 112 Errard Street South, Ballarat Central
Don's Challenge
We asked Don to sell our home at the price we wanted and with some initial restrictions that he may not normally have. But the big challenge for him was to sell it in an area that had not had any comparisons in our high price range, and with some stating that it would not reach the asking price. He chose and screened prospective buyers well and understood their needs and ours. He knew we had a good product and worked hard to achieve our sale and gave us a great outcome. We can now move on to our next challenge, the new owners will be very happy in this home, and we're sure Don will be working hard for his many future clients. Thank you
Lesanne Frys; 69 Majestic Way, Delacombe
Don Hanlon
Don is the real estate agent you can trust to professionally sell your house. He listened and understood my goals in selling, and was very easy to work with, always keeping me in the loop. My house sold when I was overseas, he diligently kept me up to date via messenger which was a relief to not have to worry about a thing while I was away.
Sally Kennedy; 1114 Armstrong Street North, Ballarat
Speedy Sale
Both Margareta and I were surprised at the speed of the sale. Don worked hard to achieve this, top marks that man!

We, the undersigned, recently purchased a residential property in Invermay Park, through your company & Don Hanlon was the agent through whom we dealt. We would like it known that he was a thorough gentleman & treated us with the utmost courtesy, honesty & respect throughout the whole process. He was as good as his word on every occasion & we are very satisfied/happy with his help. If we have an occasion to have further real estate dealings in the future, Don is the one we would seek out. We can do nothing but recommend his services to any prospective clients.

The rellies were impressed too!

Bruce and Joan Hopkins would like to congratulate and thank PRDnationwide for the lovely flowers when we first put our house with you for sale. A big thankyou to Don Hanlon your real estate agent for his wonderful help right from day one even before we had our house for sale. We had a visit in our area doing evaluations and he kept in touch because he knew we were thinking of selling and was in the area and called in just as we were swapping agents from another real estate who we were very disappointed with. Don has been professional, helpful and a great person to deal with. Thank again PRDnationwide and Don Hanlon.

The service that was given to me, in the purchase of my new home by all the staff, but in particular Don Hanlon was just fantastic and if I ever hade to move again (hopefully not) I would definitely put your PRD Ballarat on the top of my list. And Don, thank you sincerely.

Margaret and I are happy to report that we found Don Hanlon of PRD to be most helpful and took a very professional approach in assisting us to find a home in Ballarat. In particular we found Don to be very patient with us in his efforts to find us the right home for our retirement. We have no hesitation in recommending Don or PRDnationwide to any of our friends or acquaintances seeking to purchase a house in Ballarat.

Thankyou for the opportunity to give feedback on my recent experience with PRDnationwide. I cannot comment highly enough on the professionalism of Don Hanlon. Right from the start he explained the whole process and kept us up to date with every aspect of the sales campaign from beginning to end. His belief and enthusiasm was incredible when he inspected the property for the first time and continued through the whole process. He explained the costs related to the campaign, contacted us after each open house to let us know of any interest, introduced us to the auctioneer, who explained how things would proceed on auction day. On auction day we met and confirmed reserve details. At the conclusion of the auction we met with the purchaser to sign contracts, which, while being formal was very relaxed. PRDnationwide are extremely lucky to have someone like Don Hanlon as a part of their sales team.

We recently purchased a residential property in Ballarat through PRDnationwide with Don Hanlon as the selling agent. Don phoned us immediately the property was listed for sale and arranged for us to inspect it that same day while we were up from Melbourne. He was completely honest and open about all aspects of the property, allowing us to make a quick but informed decision to purchase it. He then liaised closely with the vendors and organised promptly to obtain the necessary paperwork from the vendor's solicitor. All of the exchange of documents was carried out smoothly and efficiently via email, thus saving us from having to make repeat trips to Ballarat. Once the sale had been confirmed, Don very kindly offered to show us through the house once more, since he was mindful of the fact that we had only seen it on one occasion. We are delighted with our purchase and with Don's handling of the buying process and we are looking forward to moving to Ballarat early in the New Year.

The whole of our experience with you over Peregrine Court was as close to ideal as I have ever imagined a real estate transaction could be. I have made this known to my friends at Ballarat. I would have no hesitation in recommending you as someone to use in connection with real estate transactions in Ballarat. Having been in real estate, I'm very aware that the successfullness of a transaction is greatly assisted by very clear, specific briefing and would add that to anyone asking my advice. It was a very real pleasure dealing with you Don and if I am ever involved in a real estate transaction in Ballarat, I'd prefer it to be with you.

My contact with my agent was always regular, polite and professional. Don did a great job managing the sale to cautious purchaser. I was satisfied with the price we got and would use Don again if (God forbid) we move on.

My initial contact via one of the real estate websites received a prompt and friendly reply. Although the agent was unavailable, she passed my enquiry onto a colleague who was similarly prompt in response. Don Hanlon was generous with his time and knowledge above and beyond what I have come to expect. Along with his professionalism, being treated as a person, rather then simply another buyer, made working with Don a great pleasure.
Jane Milloy; 60 Magpie Street, Mount Pleasant
We felt comfortably supported throughout the buying process. Don dealt with all the necessary matter and was able to answer all our questions with respect and courtesy.

From the first moment I met Don Hanlon I felt relaxed and confident he would look after me and sell my house with professionalism and honesty. I knew he was acting for me as the seller not for the buyer. He was very sincere and encouraging. I felt comfortable giving him the job of the sale of my house. Nothing I asked for was a problem. He went out of his way to make sure I was informed of what was happening with the sale of my house and if he showed people through what their feed back was. He even helped organize someone to mow my lawns and fix the small problems as they arose. I live in Melbourne and didn't know anyone in Ballarat to do these small jobs that were required. Don always made time for me and made me feel that my thoughts or worries were his top priority. I would recommend PRD to anyone I know and feel confident they would get the top quality care and help that I was given. Thank you Don for everything and acting so professionally and sincerely, it was a great experience dealing with you and PRD.

Don Hanlon has been very helpful in finding me a house to move into and buy, also with the financial side of things. Don has been in contact with me on plenty of occasions in looking for the right property.

My experience with PRD was a positive one. From the moment I met with my agent Don Hanlon I felt more relaxed and hopeful and realised that it was the right decision to change agents. The previous five months were with another estate agent, had left me exhausted and completely deflated. Don was positive and confident and had the determination that inspired me to trust him. I was introduced to his partner Neville Dooly and together they formed a plan. Don and Neville are an incredible team, completely focused on selling my property re - assuring and supporting me every step of the way and they delivered a positive sale at auction in five weeks. Neville the auctioneer was experienced and worked hard for that positive result, backed by Don and friendly & helpful staff at the office working together for a positive outcome for their client. This has been a great experience for me, positive from the beginning to the end. Sincere and grateful thanks to you all for helping me to move on with the rest of my life!

Hi Don, Just a quick note to thank you for your efforts in obtaining a good outcome in the sale of Humffray Street. Based on an independent valuation done 2 years ago, I believe the sale price achieved was at the top of the range.
Ray Wright; 334 Humffray Street South, Golden Point
We were very impressed with the entire team at PRDnationwide Ballarat with the organisation, advice and sale of our property. Don Hanlon was always keeping us well informed of every inspection that occurred and also provided detailed comments and feedback from all of the potential buyers. It was a great relief to have the sale sorted very quickly as being a vacant property we did not want to see it sitting empty for too long. The marketing was great and simplified and Tiarne Keighrey was on the ball with all aspects of the sale advertising etc. Thanks PRD and if we need a Real Estate Agent in Ballarat in the future we will visit your office.

Dear Don, Thank you for all your hardwork involved in the sale of 2 Haymes Crescent. I'm certain that we wouldn't have achieved the result that we did without your tenacity. All the best Andrea Dennett.
Andrea Dennett; 2 Haymes Crescent, Ballarat
Don was very thorough and professional. Our property sold for the anticipated amount in less than a week and Don was quick to communicate and kept us in the loop. Very satisfied.

After researching other agents, I was put in touch with Don Hanlon through a neighbour who knows Don personally. I was in the middle of renovating my kitchen so was in need of some advice as not to over capitalise. Don came around looked around the house, told me what and what not to do, gave me a valuation and went through how he would sell my house. I signed up on the spot. 2 weeks later kitchen done, my house went on the market, 5 weeks later the house was sold for a great price. Don did an awesome job, he kept me informed the whole way through. I found Don to be honest, reliable, punctual and thorough and above all a nice bloke. I would highly recommend PRD and in particular Don Hanlon. Thanks for everything.

I have just had PRDnationwide handle the sale of my mother's house in Delacombe. It was a traumatic time for us as Mum was about to enter permanent care, but Don Hanlon guided us through with his professional and caring manner. Mum is delighted with the outcome and can't speak highly enough of Don and his team. The house sold within two weeks and the transition has been painless. Thankyou to everyone involved.
