What people say about us

My experience of Burchell and Higgins: genuine, reliable, available, creative, and certainly personable with warmth and humour.

At 78, the decision to downsize from acreage on a coastal property after 30 odd years was a sensible one, but the prospect was daunting. Choosing Burchell Higgins Property Sales to guide me through the process proved to be a wise decision. From 'get go' Peta and Guy allayed my anxiety. Over a cuppa at the kitchen table Peta outlined the steps and procedures, costs, evaluations, and our respective responsibilities. Peta answered my questions and assured me that they would be with me on this journey. Following the initial preparations and announc...

We couldn't be more impressed with their outstanding service

We had the pleasure of working with Peta and Guy from Burchell Higgins Property Sales to sell our dad's property, and we couldn't be more impressed with their outstanding service. Unlike other agents who viewed the property negatively and seemed unwilling to put in the effort, Peta and Guy saw the beauty and uniqueness of the place. They approached the task with genuine enthusiasm and valued the property for its individuality. Peta and Guy's dedication to advertising and selling the property was exemplary. They recognised the unique features of our house and propert...

We would rate Peta as the best and friendliest agent we have encountered

We have bought and sold property a number of times over the years and, without question, we would rate Peta as the best and friendliest agent we have encountered. As buyers based in Sydney we needed somebody in our corner. And I’m happy to report, at every step of the process, Peta went the extra distance, keeping an eye out for us during our property search, clearly explaining procedures when we found the perfect place, always responding in a timely fashion, and accommodating our long-distance requirements along the way. I cannot recommend Peta and Burchell Higgins hi...


We will always be grateful to Peta and Guy.

When we decided it was time to move, Burchell Higgins was one of the agencies we approached. They responded quickly and at our first meeting we were impressed by their enthusiasm and their wealth of practical advice on the marketing process. We faced several problems during that process but Peta, our main contact, always remained upbeat and made positive suggestions for the way ahead. We realised we were facing a slowing market and accepted Peta’s advice on fine tuning our pricing. The result was a satisfactory outcome for us and also for the buyers – a testament to ...

Selling my family home was difficult both emotionally and physically but made incredibly easier by the professional, warm and dedicated support of Peta during the whole process. No question, or concern was too small, and she spent the time to explain the process and guided me the whole way to present my home in its best light.

We doubt a more professional & personable real estate team could be found

Burchell Higgins Property Sales we’re our chosen agents when we decided to sell our home on 16ha near Bega. Peta responded promptly and arranged an initial visit.

An outstanding example of a Real Estate Agent... the opposite to what most agents are like.

Peta from Burchell Higgins Property Sales is an outstanding example of a Real Estate Agent I would want to work with again and who I will recommend highly to everyone. She was so friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to work with from the first moment we spoke. She is the opposite to what most agents are like. She was so helpful with the sale and made the process effortless. I highly recommend Peta as someone you can rely in on the property market; she is lovely! Steven, Black Range

Could not recommend this team more highly!

Selling the family home of 30 years was a huge undertaking for me. Guy And Peta were a delight to work with, making the whole process run smoothly. The idea of an open house, which I was not too keen on at first, is brilliant. Knowing when people were coming to inspect on one specific day and time removed much of the stress. At all times, both Peta and Guy were open, available and generous with their time and information. Could not recommend this team more highly, a pleasure to deal with them.

And it all come true because of who Peta is as a professional and as a person

My experience with Peta from Burchell Higgins real estate must be told, because the effort that Peta went to for us is far beyond what is required for a real estate agent's role to find a client a home. I originally contacted Peta via email because she was the last agent to sell a property in the beautiful sort after area of Tanja. I'm so glad I did because I can say with confidence that we wouldn't have found the home of our dreams without her. For a year after I contacted her, Peta was our go to for anything real estate on the south coast. She would even give us her...

– For Guy And Peta, Amplification Of Their Reputation Is The Order Of The Day.

“When everything goes well in a sale, vendors are generally happy. It is when there are challenges that a company’s reputation can be amplified or otherwise. For us, our recent sale proved to be more challenging than we had ever expected. Peta was particularly attentive to our needs, communicated in a professional yet sensitive way, demonstrated a level of expertise in managing a stressful situation and appreciated the needs of her clients. For Guy and Peta, amplification of their reputation is the order of the day.

Carolyn and Ben Perryman

– Professional, Yet Very Personable, Right From The Start

“We consulted with several different agents in the Valley prior to putting our house on the market and were very impressed with Peta and Guy. They were professional, yet very personable, right from the start. They did what they said they would in a timely manner and were realistic with expectations, guiding us through the property market without putting pressure on us or trying to use unnecessary marketing gloss. Thank you for a great result and we would love to use you again if we return to the Bega Valley. We thoroughly recommend them.
