"The service and personal attention we received from Ben Smith of Place Estate Agents was exceptional and unexpected from a young Realtor.  He is truly a high-calibre performer!

Ben kept us fully informed of all that was going on with our property including enquiries and feedback with open homes.

His knowledge of the local market and network of contacts and buyers in the community helped with the selling of our home in just 3 weeks!

We are now selling our investment property and have no hesitation in bringing Ben in to do this for us.

Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Ben to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better realtor to guide us through the process."

“We recently purchased a Home Unit in Kangaroo Point which was marketed by Simon Caulfield and Ben Smith, representatives of Place Real Estate.

At all times we found Simon and Ben to be helpful and informative.  They acted professionally and with courtesy, while at all times effectively representing the interests of the Vendors”.

"To the potential client,

After "shopping around" for a real estate agent to sell our house, Ben Smith became the obvious choice within half an hour of meeting him for the first time.  He listened to our hopes and fears and responded with professional advice that allayed our concerns and reassured us that he would get us the best price possible.  

In particular, the marketing strategy he presented us with was multi-layered, demonstrating that he had all bases covered and all within a very reasonable and affordable budget.  Throughout our short campaign, Ben worked very hard to attract the right buyer and kept us well informed throughout the whole process.  Every step of the way, we felt comfortable, knowing we had a great agent who would work to his capacity - he made us feel like we were his only client.  

He provided us with thorough information about each of the prospective buyers and we were extremely happy when our house went under contract within 3 weeks of going on the market.  An outstanding result, all thanks to Ben Smith.  We would recommend him unconditionally to anyone looking for a real estate agent who is genuine, reliable and dedicated to achieving the best for his client."

"To all future vendors


I couldn’t recommend Ben Smith and his team highly enough. Ben is highly enthusiastic, energetic, realistic, organised and unlike a lot of other real estate agents refreshingly down to earth and ‘real’, often a rarity in this profession where hype tends to abound.


Bens marketing strategy was right on the mark he kept me informed as to potential buyers whilst his team provided me with the weekly summary reports.


The property I sold was a four bedroom Queenslander in Kangaroo Point and I live in Melbourne Victoria. As this property had been previously tenanted but somehow came to acquire squatters, Ben took the property from me in that condition. Him and his team organised gardeners, carpet removalists and whatever else was required to bring it up to market standard.


In addition, he was a master at dealing with the tricky family situation he was placed in, that of a separation and divorce settlement. He ensured all parties were kept informed and kept calm and cool headed when faced with any challenges that arose between my ex-husband, myself and the campaign.

Ben is a great guy, very, very professional, and an outstanding real estate agent.... this was the third property I sold this year and he was by far, even interstate, the most impressive I’ve used.

The QLD market is very different to the Victorian market and I had to follow his expertise and advice. On this occasion he recommended auction, and I am happy to say it was the right decision ... I listened on the phone and was extremely happy with the result.


Of all the real estate agents I interviewed for this property on the phone, from the word go Ben Smith was the obvious choice."
