I commenced my real estate career as an ambitious 18 year old, fresh off completing my VCE studies. A solid grounding as a trainee in a busy property management department ensured I learnt the right tools from the very start. My passion however was sales, and 10 months later I took the opportunity to commence my career in real estate sales.
7 years later – I joined the team at Ballarat Property Group. I wanted to work with a young, ambitious team of real estate professionals – and that’s exactly what you’ll experience when dealing with BPG. I pride myself on giving my clients the right advice – ensuring we maximise your result in every situation. This industry is constantly evolving, and marketing property is no longer as simple as placing an ad in the local newspaper. At BPG, Our head’s aren’t buried in the sand.
Using modern technology – we have recently commenced utilising the power of video to showcase our properties. We’ve already enjoyed some outstanding results, with plenty more on the way. The power and popularity of social media and YouTube is unquestionable. People often ask me – “What’s your point of difference?”
It’s simple. I do what I say I’m going to do. When I meet a client for the first time – I’m not there to list that property or make that sale. I’m there to ensure I gain a client for life. I think where a lot of agents fall down – they take for granted what we actually do on a daily basis. When someone puts their faith and trust in you to sell the most valuable asset that they own – that’s a huge deal! And whilst that’s what we as agents do on a daily basis, the client that you’re dealing with may only do this 3-4 times in their lifetime!
At home – I’m extremely lucky to be partnered by my wife Jessica, and our two gorgeous little girls . When I’m not working, Jess and I could be sprung dining out enjoying a glass of wine, or you may catch me running the lake, or tenpin bowling. One of my proudest achievements outside of work is having bowled 3 perfect 300 games in my chosen sport. If I’m not in town – fair chance I’m anchored somewhere out on the middle of Port Philip Bay chasing a big snapper and a few whiting. But most of the time – I’ll be on the phone, or at the open homes – striving for a great result for you.
We were extremely pleased with the service we received from you Daniel when looking for our new retirement home in Ballarat. You were very honest and responded promptly to every enquiry we made including emails and text messages. We have found other Real Estate Agents lacking in this regard. Thankyou for all your assistance. It was very much appreciated. We have settled into our new home and enjoying our new lifestyle.

Would like to say a huge big thank you to Daniel Nestor at Ballarat Property Group for selling my first home within a week & a half! Was so wonderful to deal with & I highly recommend Dan! It's all starting to feel very real now, a little sad but can't wait to start all over again! Thanks Dan!

I have recently had the pleasure of meeting your Sales Consultant Daniel Nestor on a number of occasions and felt it necessary to pass on my commendation on such a professional and obliging young man.
Unfortunately and although I did not end up purchasing with Daniel it was certainly not through his lack of commitment and follow up. He was always courteous and a pleasure to deal with and I would not hesitate in recommending him or contacting him again in the future if required.

Your expertise in real estate is obvious and couple with your personal and genuine manner, made for a stress free buying experience.
You took the time to ascertain and understand our requirements. You nailed all elements of our brief, location, style and budget.
Your follow up, communication, efficiency and attention to detail was outstanding.
It was a lovely and refreshing surprise to find a professional and proactive real estate agent like yourself.
We wouldn’t hesitate to buy or sell real estate through the business you represent so well.
Thank you once again.

To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing to you on behalf of my husband James and myself Sarah Stephens. I am writing in regards to one of your agents Daniel Nestor. We recently sold our property 49 Delaney Drive through Ballarat Property Group with Daniel as our agent, and I want to say a big thank you to Daniel and Ballarat Property Group. Daniel was a fantastic agent to deal with. He was always in contact with us as vendors keeping us fully informed, giving us different options within the selling process. And just in general working to achieve the best result he possibly could for us.
Daniel went above and beyond his duties, with me calling him outside of business hours and Daniel always answered or responded as soon as he could. Even whilst out of the country on his honeymoon he still kept in contact to make sure we knew where the process was up to.
Daniel also went out of his way to help with the purchase of our new house even though we weren't purchasing through Ballarat Property Group. He gave advise and informed us what we should be doing to make sure the agent we were purchasing from was not doing anything wrong to us. Without Daniel we would not have brought our dream house. And for that we can't thank or recommend him enough.
We have been and will be recommending. Daniel to anybody who will listen to us.
So thank you once again Daniel.
- James, Sarah & Ivy Stephens
I was recently delighted to have sold my property through Ballarat Property Group. All members of their team were extremely professional, helpful and friendly. Daniel Nestor was my main Sales Consultant, and the one who actually made the sale. I found Daniel's friendly, easy manner to be most approachable and professional at all times. He kept me fully informed of all proceedings, answering my phone calls and queries promptly and efficiently. He also went out of his way to help me with several small issues that he wasn't required to do, but for which I was most grateful.
I was impressed by the prompt approach of the team when my property first went on the market, with them bringing through a number of potential buyers in the first few days. My property sold very quickly and I respect and very much appreciate Daniel's advice on all stages of the sale from our first meeting to final settlement. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Ballarat Property Group, and particularly Daniel, to anyone buying or selling a property.

Dear Property Group
I wanted to write to you and congratulate you on having such a successful business that ticked all the boxes for us. I wanted to also let you know how impressed and happy we were with our sales agent, Daniel Nestor.
We recently sold our house in Delacombe with Daniel Nestor. Daniel was fabulous to deal with right from the listing all the way to seeing how things were going even after moving,
Our house was already on the market for 3 months with a previous agent who failed to sell our property, so we got in touch with Daniel; he was very confidant right from the start and restored our faith in selling our property.
Everything was so relaxed and just flowed with Dan, his happy, bubbly professional attitude together with his knowledge and expertise got the result we wanted and in just 2 weeks. He was so helpful with questions, phone calls and keeping us update with everything that was happening. He truly loves what he does and is very dedicated at achieving the results for his clients.
Daniel achieved our result and better, should we need him in the future again we wouldn’t hesitate, we were extremely happy with Daniel and Property Group as a Business.
Thank you Daniel , I am sure you’ll hear from us again in the future
