Professional and Friendly

Thanks for making the process simple and stress-free.


A Quiet Achiever

Thomas sold my property off market and was a great combination of; efficient, unobtrusive, informative and competent.

Richard (vendor)

A good experience

Ben was great on the day of the open home but Stephen and Ben work as a team and I dealt most with Stephen who was excellent. He was attentive, a good communicator and very responsive. I’m very happy with the purchase.


Stephen has done a great job.  Very Happy.

All very good in communications, knowledge of the area. Understand the market and what is real

Charlie (buyer)

Good experience of buying a house.

Stephen was very helpful through the process, easy to contact and clear in his communication


A Great Listener

We first contacted Ben when we were interested in a Property in Paddington. Despite us only being interested in that particular property, Ben took the time to ask us what we were after. My response could not have been more vague, but he must have understood what I meant because he set up a viewing at another house in Bardon after I had gone through the one we were initially interested in. Turns out he understood exactly what we wanted better than we did, the Paddington property wasn’t for us but the Bardon property was exactly what we had been searching for. His efforts saved us valuable time and he secured a contract for the seller off-market. Ben was a pleasure to deal with, he was courteous, genuine, timely and knew Bardon like the back of his hand. A great real estate agent.


Professional and focused on achieving the best outcome

Ben and Nick delivered a great outcome with the sale of our property. From the outset they were understanding, professional and focused on achieving the best outcome for our sale. Their knowledge of recent property sales in the area paired with an understanding of clients looking to buy, identified a fantastic opportunity to quickly go to market. Even before the property went online, Ben and Nick had raised significant interest through their client base. Our property went online on a Wednesday, had a very successful first open home on the Saturday with 32 groups through, multiple offers submitted by Saturday night, with an unconditional contract signed Sunday. I would happily recommend Ben, Nick and the Wakely Properties team to anyone wanting their property sold for a great price and in quick time.



Kept up communication as needed. Did a great job.


Safe and experienced hands

Ben had his finger on the pulse the whole time. He was cool, calm, and collected. When we received low-ball offers that made us anxious, he reassured us that they were not (and would not be) the end of the story. His predictions proved to be like clockwork and we got a great price with no real stress at all. He kept us in the loop the whole time, and called to update us when it suited us – sometimes late and night, or early in the morning. He really treated us as his top priority.

Vendor 9 Beatrice St, Bardon, QLD, 4065

Sold within a week

Ben and Trudy did a wonderful job of selling our home in Bardon. We chosen Ben and his team because they have a deep understanding of the market in Bardon and there is no “sales talk” with them. What I mean by that is they are direct and honest about the market conditions and with feedback from potential buyers which builds trust.

Paul Devlin (vendor)

Top notch agent!

The first thing I noticed about Thomas is that he is confident and well-spoken, but more than that I soon found him to be very knowledgeable and skilled. And then under the restrictions of Covid Thomas was able to continue the momentum, maintainng individual inspections and assisting in all aspects of his job as a sales agent. He is an excellent communicator, kept us well-posted and was always available for discussions via mobile. His office is close to the property we were selling which I think is a major advantage, but more than that, I got the impression that Thomas genuinely loves his job and works very hard to obtain successful results.

Sante D'Ettorre (vendor)

The Paddington Expert

We needed to sell our Paddington workers cottage after owning it as our home and then a rental property. Ben knows Paddington inside and out. In our mind there was no question that he was the right agent for the job. The house was sold, for the price we wanted within about a month. Amazing result. Particularly during COVID.

Charlotte And Matthew (vendor)

Exceptional Agent !

We found a property to purchase during Covid, at the time we had concerns about selling our home in the current market. However, we should not have had any worries, Ben and the Wakely team took on board our concerns, constant communication and support throughout the whole process was second to none! Ben’s expertise, experience and integrity ensured we got a absolutely great result. We would have no hesitation using Ben’s services again in the future!

David & Angie (vendor)

Fast and smooth sale

Ben was not pushy and very determined to get us the best price for our property. Ben and Stephen made the process fast and our house was sold and all settled within 15 days of first open home. Super easy and very smooth sale.

Tanya & Lee (Vendor)

Outstanding agents

The whole process was supported by Ben’s team and I would highly recommend their services. They were friendly, all smiles and very helpful. Thanks for the lovely touch of ‘Welcome Hamper’ when we got to our new home!



We could not rate Thomas highly enough. Throughout the sale process Thomas was upfront and honest about expectations while also offering useful advice which helped maximise our sale price potential. Thomas was able to get 6 good offers and a final sale price above our expectations after only 6 days of the property being on market. We would not hesitate in recommending Thomas to anyone looking to sell their property.

Beccy Bassingthwaighte (vendor)

Thank you Sthepen, your professionalism, communication and market knowledge was of the highest standard and you were always proactive, working hard for us throughout the entire selling process. You were very approachable, determined and dedicated and you made the stressful process of preparing and selling our house very easy, going above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly. Thanks so much again!

Seller of house in Paddington, QLD

A genuine and professional operator and all round nice guy.

Thomas was a pleasure to deal with. He was always contactable and followed up on any questions we had during our property search. He invested time and energy into buliding rapport with us as buyers and kept the lines of communication open between us and the seller. It is evident that Thomas loves his work and he takes a genuine interest in his clients’ needs. There was no pushy sales talk, just real conversations and a listening ear. We would certainly recommend Thomas as an agent. He’s one of the few ‘good guys’ in the business.

Brendon Alford (buyer)

Stephen was very easy to work with from a purchasing side. He was responsive, honest and made the buying experience smooth and transparent. Thank you for addressing my many questions throughout the process. Much appreciated !



Excellent Agent

I really enjoyed my experience of purchasing a property from Thomas. He was professional, polite, friendly, and went out of his way to talk me through the process of buying a house at auction. He was always available and contactable, and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks so much Thomas.

Kathy (buyer) 

Very Professional and easy to deal with

Trudy was great to deal with throughout the whole sale process. She was very professional, knowledgeable and honest.

Hamish (buyer)

Very attentive, honest and without the spin

My experience with Thomas has been excellent throughout the entire purchase process. I’ve always been skeptical of real estate agents in the past but Thomas has surpised me with his honesty and I was able to trust him as a buyer to support me in securing my new home. Highly recommended!

Ross (Buyer)

Excellent agent

Thomas Coussens is a down to earth, honest, kind, knowledgable, professional Real estate agent. He had been recommended by a friend and we are so glad we engaged his services. He explained the sale procedure thoroughly at the first visit and it all went to plan. We loved the little touches of the drinks, nibbles and coffee van for the prospective buyers. It was like our house was having a party without us. Our house was only on the market for three days, had three home opens and we received seven excellent written offers. We understand he explained the offer process equally well to buyers and encouraged them to offer the best price and best conditions possible. We are very happy with the end result. We highly recommend Thomas Coussens if you are looking to buy or sell a home.

Vendor 21 Mount Street, Toowong, Brisbane, QLD, 4066

Excellent Service

Ben and Trudy were a pleasure to work with. Their dedication and tenacity were exceptional.

Michael Bourke (vendor)

Outstanding Service from an Outstanding Agent!

We engaged Ben to sell our property at the very start of Covid. In very uncertain times Ben generated a lot of inspections and interest in our property and he was always available to come and see us at every point of the negotiation to discuss our options. Ben always had our best interest at heart, whilst respecting the buyers circumstances in a pandemic! We highly recommend Ben to anyone wanting a great result!


Engaging and communicative Agent

Even though Trudy was the agent for the seller, she made me feel like she was looking out for my interests as well. She was always available to answer my questions and was helpful throughout the home buying process.

Amanda (buyer)

Great Result

We had a great result with the sale of our house. Above expectations in regards to price and within a 2 week timeframe. The marketing and styling process was fantastic. Ben’s communication with us was brilliant.

Vendor 14 Bangalla Street, Auchenflower, Brisbane, QLD, 4066

Ben did an amazing job selling our home. We didn’t want to list the property online, so Ben used his database to book in private inspections. Ben received multiple offers in a short period of time, and we had the property under contract within a month. I would definitely use Ben again; I was very impressed with his local knowledge and negotiation skills.

Rob (Vendor)

Outstanding to deal with.

Nick was great to deal with throughout the sales process, giving his full energy and attention to his job, we felt he is the type of agent that wats to do right by the seller and prospective buyers.

Simon And Shan Rua (vendor)

Stephen was the real estate agent for the sale of a residential property of mine in Red Hill, Brisbane, He had excellent knowledge of the local real estate market and I recommend him highly.The first open house viewing he organised attracted over 50 potential purchasers, subsequently resulting in several firm offers, one of which we accepted. From initial listing to contract and on to completion took under four weeks under Stephen’s guidance and to mutual satisfaction of all parties.

Seller of house in Red Hill, QLD

Professional and Knowledgeable

Trudy was amazing. She was approachable and supportive. Trudy had a great knowledge of the market and made the whole process incredibly easy.

Amanda (buyer)


Thomas was extremely helpful during the process of purchasing this property.

Scott (Buyer)

Delivered over and above on what was promised !!

From the very first time we met Ben, we were impressed by his professionalism and passion for wanting to assist us in the sale of our property. Ben delivered a high level of service on all aspects of the selling process, providing valuable recommendations, maintaining a high level of communication and in the end delivering an outstanding result. I would highly recommend Ben for all your property management and sale needs.


Stephen worked tirelessly to achieve the outcome we were after. It was his hard work and dedication that got us the price we were looking for and he went above and beyond to secure the deal for us. Highly recommend.

Seller of house in Bardon, QLD

Stephen was a great agent to buy from. He was very responsive, clear and helpful. We didn’t feel like we were just getting ‘the sell’. He make the decision to buy easier for us.

Buyer of house in Red Hill, QLD

Great Result from Ben Again!

This is the second property Ben has sold for Lara and I! We really appreciate his level of market knowledge and the right advise at the right time, which resulted in two written offers competing at the same time, and having an unconditional contract settled in 21 days! I would highly recommend Ben to anyone selling in the Bardon or Paddington Area.

Sean (Vendor)

I can’t say enough about Thomas He is a gentleman He was always kind loyal and honest He always made me feel better when I was very worried and didn’t think of himself at anytime He went out of his way to make it easier for us He is my hero Thank you Thomas from the bottom of my heart We did it 😊

Les And Les (vendor) 

Exceptional Agent and Highly Recommended

Trudy was the ultimate professional when handling the sale of my property. From the very beginning, she provided research of activity in the area, gave great advice about expectations and consistently kept me up to date along every step of the way. Her communication was fantastic and she got several offers on the table in a very short amount of time which culminated in a successful sale very quickly. I could not recommend her more highly!

Annae2797 (vendor)

5 star experience

We cannot thank Nick enough for his endless kindness, compassion and friendliness during our entire experience of buying our new home. From the first day we met to handing over keys – and beyond, Nick was always available to call or text and we felt 100% supported as buyers the entire time. We would absolutely recommend Wakely Real Estate for buying/selling and are so grateful to have had a beautiful experience for our first home purchase. Thanks Nick & Ben!

Brooke & Zsolt (buyer)

Ben did a brilliant job

No fuss real estate. Ben understands value, the market, timing, marketing and negotiation. We will deal with Ben again

James Lilley (Vendor)

Stress free with a great result!!

Having been a real estate agent myself for ten + years I knew it was important to choose the right agent for the sale of my mother in-laws property. We chose Thomas for his honest, down to earth nature as well as his strong understanding of the area and his digital marketing presence. We both decided that the auction process was going to work best for my Mother in-laws situation. Thomas went to a great deal of effort with the open homes and his communication was exceptional with providing feedback throughout the auction campaign. On the day of the auction we felt assured that Thomas had provided all of the required information for us to make the right decision and this enabled us to get a great result selling under the hammer on the day. Thank you Thomas for your guidance and support during this time and making it a stress free experience.

Jason & Nicole Gegg (vendor)


Ben and Stephen were wonderful to deal with. They were very professional in every way. We would certainly recommend them to other people.

Michael And Jenny Davis (vendor)

Ben has been thoroughly professional in his approach. He has always timely responded to all the questions and willing to work patiently. Ben is always eager to help and willing to respond to any questions even after we moved into our new house. The overall process of buying was pretty smooth, thanks to Ben and his team.

Yash (Buyer)

Ben and Trudy – What a great experience!

We recently purchased a property in Bardon. Ben and Trudy from Wakely Properties, were extremely knowledgeable and responsive. They helped with all our queries and went the extra mile. They are both professional agents and we highly recommend Wakely Properties.

Elmien & Johan (buyer)

Our entire experience with Ben and his team went seamlessly. Little effort on our part, they did all the hard work and we achieved a great result. Would highly recommend him and would gladly work with him in the future

Lee-anne (Vendor)

Trudy was delightful to deal with. Always available to speak with. A lovely calm relaxed manner.

Trudy was truely professional and would highly recommend her and Ben as a great team. Trudy had a great understanding of the red hill/ Paddington market place. She has the ability to keep you calm and reassured during the sale process. Trudy kept me fully updated throughout the campaign which was very important to me. Excellent follow up with the potential buyers . Well done to the wakeley team


Undoubtedly Excellent

Ben has the highest of standards, matched with boundless enthusiasm and experience and peerless market knowledge. He is professional, knowledgeable, and I would not hesitate to work with him in the future.

Tim & Vanessa (Vendor)


Thomas was always attentive to all aspects of the selling process. Professional, helpful and positive attitude. Would use him again if needed.

Andrew Steele (vendor)

Ben sold us this property in 2006 so when it came time to sell there was only one choice, Ben Wakely. Ben and his team have again gone above and beyond in delivering an unconditional contract in 8 days. In short, Ben is nothing short of brilliant in his approach to marketing and selling properties.

Cameron (Vendor)

An all-round positive experience and quick sale of my apartment

Stephen has excellent knowledge of the local market and provided great advice on preparing my apartment for sale. I really appreciated Stephen’s approach of providing clear and regular communication throughout the entire process, which put me at ease as a first-time seller. Stephen worked to get the best outcome for me and the sale was finalised with minimal complication or delay.

Vendor 14/33 Rokeby Terrace, Taringa, Brisbane, QLD, 4068

Best Agent I’ve had

Ben and the team at Wakely properties went above and beyond. Working around the clock and making both me and my partner Jess comfortable in the process. He’s knowledge and connections within the local area are second to none. I will be using Ben again when the time comes.

Matthew (vendor)

Great to work with

Straight forward, easy transaction. Trudy was great to deal with.


Great Agent

Ben was helpful and supportive throughout the purchase of our new home. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone looking for a new property.

Amanda (Buyer)

He’s everything you want in an agent when selling your property.

We first met Thomas as a prospective buyer and his follow up was impressive so we decided to task him selling our house knowing how hard he works for a sale. Our experience with him as the seller was nothing but positive, we found him to be transparent, hard working, and accommodating to our own unique circumstances and in the end he achieved a result which exceeded our expectations. Our past experiences (and ones since) have really shone a light on how good Thomas is compared to the rest, in instances where other agents would have been impatient or applied pressure to do things their way Thomas showed great patience and an open mind to help us achieve what WE wanted to achieve.


Ben did a brilliant job

No fuss real estate. Ben understands value, the market, timing, marketing and negotiation. We will deal with Ben again

Vendor 61 Rockbourne Terrace, Paddington, Brisbane, QLD, 4064

A pleasure to deal with

I have dealt with Nick as both a buyer and seller and can honestly say that the service he provided on both occasions was outstanding. He is charming, very professional and has excellent communication skills. Nick was always available to answer queries (even on Sundays!) and phoned back immediately if he missed a call. I would thoroughly recommend Nick to any prospective sellers or buyers as an honest and hardworking professional.

Glenda (Vendor)

Efficient Experience; Great Result

We first spoke to Ben when we identified a property we wanted to buy. He was able to accurately estimate the value of our exisiting property over the phone, and provide market insight to secure our new place. Once we knew we were selling, the Wakely team was incredibly efficient. A phone call on Friday led to an initial meeting the following Tuesday, photography and video on Thursday and listing the following Tuesday. Our property was sold after the first open at a price that exceeded our expectations. We are super impressed by Ben’s contacts in Paddington – and amongst the buyers’ agent community. And he went above and beyond to secure a price premium. We have a young family, and wanted a quick, clean sale as much as a good price. Ben and the Wakely team delivered on all facets. We will recommend him to our family and friends, and would use him again.

Emily & Sean (Vendor)

Exceptional, genuine and honest services

Entering the real estate to purchase a house for a first time is a challenging process and there are no shortage of real estate agents out there playing games for their own personal gain at your expense. Thomas from the very first encounter struck me as a different operator and he definitely walked the talk too in terms of helping me land a perfect first home property and escorting me through the process as a first timer who was fumbling his way through it. I can’t rate Thomas highly enough and will certainly be recommending him to any of my friends or colleagues who are on the look out for a real estate agent in the future.

Tom (buyer)

The Wakely Team Delivered

We recently purchased a property in Red Hill. Primarily we communicated with Stephen Matthews with Ben Wakely being the lead agent. We found communication with Stephen to be prompt and delivered on all levels throughout the buying process. Rarely have we found real estate agents to deliver on all levels. What Ben has is an agent who represents his branding in an honest, easy going manner which provided us a pleasure to deal with.

Russel And Jacinta (buyer)

Personable, trustworthy and professional!

Nick is a knowledgeable agent who played a pivotal role in the successful sale of our home. Trustworthy, dependable and always professional. Nick comes with our highest recommendation!

Alexander & Hayley (Vendor)

One of the greats!

Brilliant agent, amazing result, generated multiple offers within days!

Dan (vendor)

Trustworthy & Professional

Ben made the sale of my first home seamless, he was always prompt with follow ups post inspections and kept me updated along every stage of the way. Bringing a high level of knowledge in the Bardon area, I had every confidence in Ben throughout the entire process. Along with this market knowledge I was never pressured along the process and he always acted with my best interests. Would highly recommend.

Sam (vendor)

Outstanding Service

We’ve dealt with a number of Real Estate agents over the years. Stephen Matthews is top shelf. He managed to get us a top top price and worked collaboratively with us in the critical moments. He gave us great advice on what to do to best present the house for sale, didn’t try and rush us into an off market sale and most importantly he didn’t promise us us the world as too many agents tend to do. If anything he undersold and over delivered. (and he’s a good bloke and easy to chat/hang with which is an added bonus)

Vendor 23 Soudan Street, Bardon, Brisbane, QLD, 4065

Worked tirelessly to get the result

Ben and his team worked tirelessly to get the price we were after.


Quick and Easy

When it came time for us to sell our rental property, we reached out to Thomas via recommendation from a friend. Thomas had two solid offers through to us after the first open home, one of which we accepted. With his professionalism and guidance, the whole process was a quick and easy one for us.

Kate (Vendor)

Friendly, knowledgeable, fair and effective

Thomas was a terrific agent and made the process of purchasing my home so much easier and convenient. From the first open home I attended, Thomas communicated promptly and was proactive through to Settlement. I felt he truly had the fair and best interests of seller and buyer at the forefront of his mind during all our work together. I highly recommend Thomas and I am thankful he was my agent!

Rob (buyer)

Great Agent

Thanks Ben and the team. Settled yesterday. Only a couple weeks on the market. Great communicator, got the deal done with some tricky situations. Always kept calmed and positive. Highly recommended especially in the Bardon area. cheers Michael & Claudia.

Claudia & Michael (Vendor)

An expert with integrity

I couldn’t rate Ben highly enough. Working with him on our purchase was an enjoyable experience which isn’t always the case in real estate. His professionalism combined with having the highest level of integrity made for an excellent overall experience. Ben take the time to listen and truly understand your needs and works hard towards the best outcomes from there. By ensuring very high levels of communication throughout the process, he balances the vendor/purchaser relationship extremely well ensuring exceptional results for both parties. I highly recommend Ben from both the seller and purchaser’s perspectives and wouldn’t go anywhere else for any of my real estate needs.

Simon (buyer)

Great to work with

Thomas helped me purchase my first home and he made it a really easy process. He kept me informed throughout the whole process and was easy to communicate with. No question went unanswered and his guidance / advice was very genuine.

Isabella (buyer)

Honest, direct and easygoing.

Ben was easy to deal with. He was honest and knew what he was talking about. We had been looking for a home closer to the city with quite a few boxes to tick and Ben listened to our brief and delivered. We are so thrilled with our purchase and would highly recommend Ben.

Maree & Murray (buyer)

A great experience

Very happy with Wakeley Properties. Easy to deal with and helped achieve a great outcome for both buyer and seller.

Buyer 179 Empress Terrace, Bardon, Brisbane, QLD, 4065

An Exceptional Agent – disrupting Real Estate for the better.

I both bought and sold my home with Ben and cannot fault his integrity and professionalism. His market knowledge is ahead of the curve, his communication transparent and overall Ben is an exceptional agent. Ben is backed by a five star team that work hard to deliver great results. The copywriting, photography and property styling thanks to Danielle at Market Ready was all outstanding. It is very reassuring having a team of people working hard to help you to achieve the best possible outcome. I cannot thank Ben, Nick and the team enough for the work they did that led to the right result in selling my property. If you are looking to sell property in the greater Paddington area, Ben is my only recommendation. Don’t risk your biggest asset with anyone else.

Belinda (vendor)

Thomas made our house sale easy!

Thomas’ care, attention to detail and great market knowledge made the process of selling our house stress free and straightforward. We felt super-confident in Thomas’s property and suburb expertise, and his openness and honesty ensured we quickly built a relationship of trust. Initially Thomas spent a long time with us going through the selling process and answering all our queries. He was quick to get the process underway with a comprehensive marketing approach and had plenty of potential buyers coming through the open homes. Thomas provided us with numerous offers and we were delighted with the end result. We absolutely recommend Thomas and would definitely use his services again to buy or sell a property.

Emma And Mark (vendor)

Pre-contract provided detailed marketing strategy and accurate price guide, was personable and great first impression. Once on the market Stephen worked hard, tirelessly and always kept us informed of progress, he brokered the best possible outcome one could ask for, both fair and reasonable for us and the buyers. The sale process can be daunting at the best of times, Stephen is the agent you can rely on to ease those concerns and deliver you the results he says he can.

Tom (buyer)

A great gentleman to trust in real estate

I chose Stephen among other agents to sell my property because I can see the ability to concentrate, the great attitude, and the smart way of thinking from him during our communications. During the sale campaign, Stephen was very efficient to communicate and he’s a win-win maker for the buyer and the seller. He is very professional and very experienced. He is the man who can really make things happen in real estate, and his effort is highly appreciated.

Great result from a great Agent!

Ben and the Wakely Property Team did a great job achieving a fantastic result on the sale of my home. Communicating all the way with me making the complete process smooth and seamless, I would have no hesitation in recommending Ben and his team. Thanks Ben!

Woranee Brooks (vendor)

Confidence in experience.

At a time when the market was rocketing and everyone was guessing what was going to happen next, Ben had full control over the sale of our house. Ben devised a sales plan that would work best for both his skill set and our timeline, provided a guide of what he felt that he could get in the market and then knocked it out of the park by pushing towards the high end of the guide. Confidence in an agent is paramount and Ben’s proven track-record shows that he knows the market better than most.

David T (vendor)

Stephen and the team at Wakely come with our highest recommendation. Got a great result for the sale of our house in a timely fashion. Professional, punctual and an excellent communicator. Thanks Stephen!

Seller of house in Taringa, QLD

Great advice and excellent result!

Our property was rented to tenants and we are living overseas, making the process complicated. Ben did an exceptional job working with our tenants to facilitate us selling the property before their lease finished, avoiding the need to pay for vacancy and staging costs. His advice on when to go on to the market was well considered and insightful and we ultimately achieved the result we were looking for. We would recommend Ben to anyone looking to sell their property in Bardon.

Shane & Kristin (Vendor)

Excellent Agent with Fantastic Service

Nick is a very friendly, professional and knowledgeable real estate agent who always acted with the highest level of honesty and integrity. His communication skills were second to none providing regular updates and prompt responses to our phone calls. We were extremely happy with the sale price and this came as a result of Nick’s perseverance and negotiation skills. Nick and his team provided exceptional service during the sale of our property and we have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone wishing to sell their home.

Lynelle (Vendor)

An all-round positive experience and quick sale of my apartment.

Stephen has excellent knowledge of the local market and provided great advice on preparing my apartment for sale. I really appreciated Stephen’s approach of providing clear and regular communication throughout the entire process, which put me at ease as a first-time seller. Stephen worked to get the best outcome for me and the sale was finalised with minimal complication or delay.

Yuki (Vendor)

Recently purchased a home in Paddington

From our very first interaction with Ben, the entire process has been an absolute pleasure. If there was one word I would use to describe Ben it is ‘authentic’. It is rare to find an agent who you really feel you can trust, not only did we find Ben to be incredibly genuine but nothing was too much trouble. Relocating to Brisbane in the midst of a pandemic was always going to be problematic but Ben and his team took all of the worry away and ensured the process ran as smoothly as possible. Whether you were looking to buy or sell I honestly couldn’t recommend Ben highly enough!

Mellissah & Jonathan (Buyer)

Great communication & an even better result

We engaged Ben on the back of his strength in the Bardon / Paddington market. We were rewarded with great communication throughout the sale process. The the strong sale result achieved promptly has greatly assisted our next home purchase.

Rosie & Ben (vendor)

Great Results

Working with Nick was great, he was very knowledgeable within the market and he gave me the best advice and ultimately allowed me to get a great result. He was very professional and was on top of everything. He would look after booking in opens with a reception, arranging keys etc. It made my life easy! Was great working with Nick I recommend him to anyone looking to sell.

Brendon (vendor)

An outstanding agent. I would strongly recommend Stephen. He was friendly and so helpful all the way. Thank you for all the support and help!

We needed to sell our home quickly and for a specific price to pounce on our forever home. We had absolute confidence in Ben to achieve it. His local knowledge is unsurpassed. He assembled a highly skilled team to make it happen – styling, photography, copywriting and of course, his team of agents – all first class. Trudi deserves special mention for her tenacity in closing the deal.

Great Result

We had a great result with the sale of our house. Above expectations in regards to price and within a 2 week timeframe. The marketing and styling process was fantastic. Ben’s communication with us was brilliant throughout the whole process.

Ben is a very capable experienced negotiator and can navigate complex transactions

Ben is a Paddington local and arguably knows the market better than his competitors. He also has a very strong reputation from his former professional sporting career but also as a 20 plus year agent in the area.

James (Vendor)

Very pleased with the result

We engaged Ben to sell our home in Paddington and were very pleased with the process and outcome.


Trudy was a pleasure to deal with

Trudy went above and beyond to ensure strong communication between all parties. Trudy is a professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Thank you very much for all your help, Trudy–you helped make the experience very positive for us! I hope we get to work together again in the future.

Ben was excellent, professional and supportive in the sale of my home

Ben and his team were excellent. They provided me with complete knowledge of the Paddington market. I selected wakeley properties due to this understanding. Ben at all stages kept me upto date with interests in my property. Ben has a great professional sales manner, and a positive approach. Highly recommend . Ben and his team.


Very Hospitable.

Stephen was excellent from inspection to contract and beyond; even negotiating early entry for me to clean the place up and remove carpet prior to settlement.

Great Service

If you are looking to buy or sell a property contact Ben Wakely.. Ben knows his Property Market very well. He is easy to have a chat with and can provide you with great advice. Ben and his Team excel in what they do, so very helpful, professional and friendly… nothing is too much trouble and will help in any way they can.

Just the agent you want to sell your house

Thomas is everything you need and want in an agent. He’s personable, knowledgeable, persistent (with leads), proactive, and made a point of keeping me up to date every step of the way. I can’t recommend him highly enough, and I would honestly suggest that you need look no further.

Craig (Vendor)

Professional and knowledgeable Real Estate Agent that delivers on his word.

Thomas sold our house in Bardon off-market and achieved a great result for both parties. It was a positive experience working with Thomas. He is very helpful and even helped us secure our new home. He is honest, persistent, hardworking and delivered on his word. We have nothing but positive feedback for him. In the industry, it is hard to find. Thank you.

Excellent Service in a Sea of Mediocrity

Primarily we dealt with Stephen Matthews (Wakely Properties). Stephen was the supporting agent but seeing as we spoke with him at the first open house we quickly gained a rapport. It is unfortunate as most property buyers and sellers feel that the real estate agent is somewhat a combination of a car salesperson and a saint. However, Stephen has a open natural personality which is a stand out among other agents that we have dealt with over 25 years of buying and selling property. When Stephen said that he would get answers for me on the property we purchased, he did. Never did I have to follow up with another call/email/sms to ask “Where is it?” He worked well and kept us abridge of the contract negotiations and answered or returned calls promptly. We would recommend Stephen highly to any prospective buyer or seller in the Red Hill area.

Russel And Jacinta (Buyer)

Dale (buyer)

Excellent Service

Ben and Trudy were a pleasure to work with. Their dedication and tenacity were exceptional.

Michael Bourke (buyer)

On Point and Professional

Thank you Trudy for your assistance in purchasing our new Paddington Home. Your customer service and communication throughout the process was outstanding. We are very happy to recommend your and Urban X for any future real estate needs. You deserve 5 stars.

Glen Barnes (buyer)

As a buyer it was an absolute pleasure dealing with Stephen from Wakley properties. Such a great guy, who is really trying to get both buyer and seller on the same page. He is very far removed from the ‘Hard sell’ agents that have turned me off so many times on my journey of finding a new home. I really could not fault his service, I would thoroughly recommend him to all sellers.
