"Ben is a first class agent and really does have the interest of both the seller and the buyer at heart .... I like his underlying philosophy, which is to 'help' both parties achieve their goals."
Jmlilley | 10 Croydon Rd Paddington QLD 4064
"Ben was an easy choice for us when choosing an agent to sell our home. Genuine, knowledgeable and hard working. He was very easy to deal with and kept us updated regularly throughout the campaign. We got a great result at auction and are thrilled!"
Sara and Lachy | 56 Elizabeth St Toowong QLD 4066
"We have been engaging agents over many years for advice and to complete various property transactions, but Ben Wakely and his team operate at another level. A real agent you can trust and take advice from, with dedication and commitment to clients that is second to none. We were fully informed by the team at all times during the sales process and from the beginning were confident in a great outcome. A big advantage of using his services is the large network he has established over the years which enables him to source buyers/sellers outside of traditional marketing methods. We have no hesitation in referring clients to Ben in the future and look forward to a long term and mutually beneficial relationship."
Jason and Michaela | 10 Okeden St Toowong QLD 4066
"Thank you to Ben and his team for being so pleasant to deal with. From start to finish, they were supportive and professional. We would definitely use Ben for any property transactions in the future."
Kirsten Adam | 26 Arabella Street Bardon QLD 4065
"We chose Ben Wakely and Urban due to the success and reputation they have in Paddington and the vast knowledge they have of the area and the simple fact, Ben is an honest person to deal with. At all times we had a true understanding of how the sale was progressing and what was very important to myself was the fact Ben didn't try and fill us with false hope just to keep us happy. This made us very confident that when Ben came to us with a potential sale, we felt it would get done and in fact it did. The entire experience was fairly stress free, apart from the usual open house stress and we would like to thank Ben and his entire team for making it an easy process."
Jeff and Kat | 33 Elizabeth St Paddington QLD 4064
"Ben brings the nice balance of being real about the transaction but clear and direct about strategy and execution. I highly recommend Ben which comes from over 40 years dealing with agents."
Jmlilley | 8A Croydon Rd Paddington QLD 4064
"Ben went the extra mile to get the sale on our property. Not only did he show a group through on Christmas Day but he also got the contract signed on New years Eve. Without Ben's work ethic and dedication the property might still be on the market. I would highly recommend Ben for the Bardon/Paddington area."
Andrew | 23 Mahara Street Bardon QLD 4065
"Ben had exceptional communication throughout the process of buying our house. Always personable and friendly, he made every effort to get the deal over the line."
Anna and Chris | 33 Elizabeth St Paddington QLD 4064
"Our experience with Ben Wakely and Jason Cherrit in both the purchase of our new house and the sale of our existing house was a pleasure. Ben was genuine and honest, keeping us up to date at all times and exceeding our expectations for service and outcome."
Kate and Matt | 37 Macartney St Paddington QLD 4064
"Ben has local knowledge, experience, professionalism, reputation, enthusiasm and self confidence. He also has a great team.
He handled our sale very well, with the least possible stress for us, and achieved a very satisfactory sale for us from the first and only open house, for which we were very thankful. He and his team presented our property in its best light, and ensured that the open house was an informative and pleasant experience for potential buyers. Ben was very ably assisted by Jason who could not have been more pleasant, helpful and attentive in the process of getting our property sold. I can happily recommend Ben and his team."
Richard And Ew | 28 Campion Ave Bardon QLD 4065
"Ben and his team provided sound advice to broker the purchase of my new Bardon home, solid communication throughout the process. Thank you."
Bend | 26 Arabella Street Bardon QLD 4065
"Top Agent. Great to deal with. Would highly recommend Ben if your thinking of selling."
Mark Hodson | 7 Sweetman St Paddington QLD 4064
"We sold our Paddington house with Ben Wakely and we had such a positive experience.
We had scheduled an Auction and a four week marketing campaign to sell our property and within two weeks we had the property sold with an unconditional contract.
From the get go, Ben showed great enthusiasm to sell our property. He has considerable knowledge and an obvious passion of the local area and the property market. He is hard working, thoughtful (presented our tenants with a gift basket of goodies as a way to show our appreciation for disturbing them with photographers, open houses etc) and offers exceptional and regular communication including weekly open house reports. But above all, Ben has an outstanding ability to negotiate the best outcome for his sellers.
We would highly recommend Ben and his team at Urban."
Tim and Megan | 47 Wilden Street Paddington QLD 4064
"Unfortunately I didn't go to market with Ben Wakely first up. I went with his direct competition. This was a mistake. They took me on a 7 week campaign and to auction where they pressured me into taking the result on the day. I didn't.
I asked Ben to sell my house.
His in-depth knowledge of marketing, louring in buyers, and negotiating was unbelievable!!!
Within the space of a week we were getting great offers, and within two weeks we had a favourable contract that was considerably higher than the auction result.
I'm not quite sure how he did it, I wasn't present for the behind the scene negotiations, though it was pretty much pure MAGIC!!
I will never use another agent, His integrity and honesty are exactly what I like when doing business.
Thank you Ben.
Also a mention to Jason Cherrett, Bens understudy. Great bloke, thorough, polite, smart, great with people - Going places!!"
Andy | 181 Jubilee Terrace Bardon QLD 4065
"Born/Raised and Living in the area he sells in hes had his fingers on the "real estate pulse" for over a decade.
And it shows.
He knows his stuff. Reliable. direct and very approachable.
Ben Francesca | 80 Main Ave Bardon QLD 4065
"We Met Ben and Jason and from the start they were straight, respectfully direct and helpful in every way.
We had our agreement organised in very quick time and worked our way through the process almost effortlessly thanks to their support and action
Thanks to you both."
Amanda and Patrick | 85 Agnes Street Auchenflower QLD 4066
"Ben did a wonderful job of selling the property prior to construction completion. His negotiation was very impressive and I would highly recommend his services."
Rob Gray | 8 McNab Street Paddington QLD 4064
"Ben was an absolute pleasure to deal with keeping the lines of communication open at all times. His ability to build strong relationships enabled him to achieved a great result for both parties. I'd highly recommend using Ben when selling your property or even just some for quality advice on the current market."
Bend | 2 Ross St Paddington QLD 4064
"Once we had made the decision to move home after many years in Sydney we called Ben, knowing that he was the leading agent in the Paddington and Bardon area. Even though Ben knew we were also considering other areas and other properties (with other agents too!) he still went out of his way to help us make our buying decision. The saying "going the extra mile" can be overused but Ben easily exceeded that measure, and on two separate occasions he dedicated half-days to showing us a great selection of on and off-market opportunities, which I can only presume took many hours to organise as well.
When the time came to do the deal Ben was honest and fairly represented both sides. Buyer and vendor came together with relative calm over the course of one single day, with Ben doing a wonderful job in the middle. He helped us secure our dream home and we would highly recommend Ben to anyone looking to buy or sell in his core markets."
Brendan and Agie | 18 Ross Street Paddington QLD 4064
"Ben was a pleasure to work with from day one. He was a clear communicator, honest and was fair on both sides of the fence in our opinion. His whole team couldn't be faulted and were happy to follow up all our enquires about the property and very prompt. We ended up with a contract prior to auction and this was achieved through quick processing and open communication. He certainly knows the Bardon and Red Hill area and we felt totally comfortable purchasing from him. In fact we were so happy we sold our own house through him."
Antoinette and Mathew | 54 Cecil Road Bardon QLD 4065
"Ben was very helpful and has great local knowledge. I would recommend his services time and time again."
Charles and Lucinda | 108 Annie Street Auchenflower QLD 4066
"Ben helped us with our house in Paddington and has been so easy and helpful through the whole process. Probably one of the best agents I've worked with. Thank you from Audrey and Ken."
Audrey and Ken | 211 Latrobe Terrace Paddington QLD 4064
"I am extremely impressed with Ben and his team. They are very respectful, highly knowledgeable, and a delight to do business with.
Ben in particular goes above and beyond the nature of the job. My house sold even before its first open.
I highly recommend Ben and his Urban team."
Penny | 37 Annie St Auchenflower QLD 4066
"Ben - came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Brilliant communicator, marketer and made the whole process seamless for me. Could not recommend him high enough!"
Edan | 11 Eastment Street Bardon QLD 4065
"Ben was helpful at all steps of the process. Moved quickly and was responsive to all questions via phone, txt or email. Marketed the property well. He kept us informed of interest in the property as it developed and guided us through the offer and acceptance phase with ease. A pleasure to deal with."
David | 43 Warruga St The Gap QLD 4061
"After a long failed campaign we were left depressed and confused as to why our beautiful home in Bardon did not sell, then along came Ben Wakely of Urban. He immediately identified the problem with the marketing strategy and with new enthusiasm and a new campaign we received two great contracts after our first open house!
Ben's positive attitude, passion, and energy certainly added to the great outcome for both us as sellers and the buyers. He lives real estate!
We have no hesitation in recommending Ben to any prospective Sellers or Buyers."
Peter and Woranee | 26 Rainworth Rd Bardon QLD 4065
"It's wonderful to have the stress taken out of buying and know that you are dealing with someone who is here for the long haul. An absolute pleasure to do business with Ben and his clients."
Cameron and Tiffany | Soudan Street Bardon QLD 4065
"Ben was very organised and professional and maintained good communication through the whole process and worked hard to achieve a successful outcome."
John | 15 Fullerton St Red Hill QLD 4059
"Ben went above and beyond to get the deal done. Ben was able to get multiple offers on the first weekend of showing the property. From there he worked with all potential buyers to get us a result we were happy with and the buyer was happy with. I would highly recommend Ben as an agent if you are selling your property in the Paddington/Bardon area."
Rob Gray | 44 Soudan St Bardon QLD 4065
"Thanks Ben for getting the deal done in a timely and hassle free period. Very professional no nonsense approach which made the experience enjoyable."
Frances and David | 44 Howard Street Paddington QLD 4064
"Ben picked up the listing on our house after we had been stuffed around by another agent for 3 months so not an easy job.It took Ben only 3 weeks to sell the property at a good price. Both Ben and his assistant Victor were honest and open at all times during the process and happy to go the extra yards. The difference between the whole team at Urban Realty and the other big brand agency we had the misfortune of dealing with is chalk and cheese. I would not give a moments hesitation in recommending Ben and the Urban team to anyone."
John and Robyn | 30 Greer St Bardon QLD 4065
"Ben was very easy to deal with during the purchase of our house recently. Always available to take our calls or see us on short notice, we found Ben sincere, reliable, efficient and very professional. We also enjoyed his sense of humour and warmth. We would highly recommend Ben."

Brad Lennon | 11 Agars St Paddington QLD 4064

Brad Lennon | 199 Baroona Rd Paddington QLD 4064
"Ben was fast, knowledgeable and went above and beyond to provide information and keep us updated. He even kept us updated outside of office hours if there was progress! The team at Urban were really reliable and moved at our pace (which was fast) so they were easy to deal with. Unlike other agents, Ben was genuine and made us a priority, which we really appreciated."
Eli and Elizabeth | 9 Beatrice St Bardon QLD 4065
"Ben is a pleasure to deal with! We really appreciated his open, honest nature and informed negotiating position."
Georgie and Andrew | 14 Arabella St Bardon QLD 4065
"Ben came recommended to me. He arrived; he was friendly and matter of fact and not full of selling palaver. My first open inspection was a week later and my house was sold within 3 days. Ben worked non stop over those 3 days to ensure a sale. He kept in contact with potential buyers and his negotiation achieved my sale. I was very happy with the service provided."
Chris | 61 Beck St Paddington QLD 4064

Helen and David | 15 Payne Street Auchenflower QLD 4066

Jacky Peter | 14 Arabella St Bardon QLD 4065

Rob Gray | Mahara Street Bardon QLD 4065

Erin Blair Burchill | 81 Bowman Parade Bardon QLD 4065
"Each day driving around the inner west of Brisbane, it wasn't too hard to notice Ben's face and advertising material displayed at bus stops, on billboards and wherever else you can think of. My wife and I spoke with two other agents before Ben and when we first met Ben he made the sale of our house his priority. From the outset Ben made us feel completely comfortable and we felt extremely confident we had made the right choice in allowing Ben to sell our property. After only 15 days on the market, Ben negotiated our sale and we cannot thank him enough for his professionalism. Ben thank you!"
Grant Chloe | 22 Beatrice St Bardon QLD 4065

Rob Gray | Gerler Street Bardon QLD 4065

We have been extremely pleased with Ben's professionalism, attentiveness, communication, honesty and clear and concise recommendations throughout the entire campaign.
We feel that Ben truly goes beyond the general duties of a real estate agent and continually worked his hardest to get us the best result. The Auction day was a great success and was run extremely well leading to a great result that we are very happy with."
Harald Zekiye Goddertz | 70 Gerler Street Bardon QLD 4065
"In preparation to place our home on the market in October this year I spent 6 months researching agents in the area. I attended many Open Day inspections and many auctions. There was one team led by Ben Wakely that stood above others. The extremely high level of professional and personal standards and outcomes are supported in the following areas.
Expert knowledge of the Bardon and local area. The slogan "Ben Wakely Sells Bardon" is certainly spot on!!!
Attention to detail and targets ( eg feedback, dates and strategies).
Accountability to the seller and buyer, use of electronic marketing, advertising and seller feedback. This is 'state of the art' marketing and cuts costs to sellers dramatically.
Ben and his associate Peter conscientiously, with good humour to achieve success. Ben is an invaluable mentor in the selling process. I strongly recommend his very professional services."
Jean Burg | 85 Gerler Street Bardon QLD 4065

We will definitely use Urban and Ben again. Great effort."
Jamie & Amy Nason | 75 Payne Street Auchenflower QLD 4066
