About Leonie

Hard work and excellent customer service were instilled in Leonie at a very young age.

Born in Bendigo to dutch parents, Leonie and her three siblings spent their early childhood helping out in the family service station under their parents strict guidelines.

She attended both Holy Rosary and St. Killians primary schools before completing her education at the former St Mary's College, (now CCB).

Leonie spent her weekends at Lake Eppalock honing her water skiing skills in preparation for Australia-wide racing competitions.

After school, Leonie briefly tried her hand as a clerical assistant at a local dental surgery before joining Win Patten Real Estate as a girl Friday.

She quickly embraced the industry and gained valuable experience providing her with the confidence to purchase her first home and obtain a full license before her 21st birthday.

45 years later she is still in the real estate industry and just as passionate about the Bendigo market.

She knows the local market intimately having built or renovated about 15 homes in and around Bendigo. Her extensive knowledge and experience covers all areas of the market with a focus on higher-end properties.

In her spare time, Leonie enjoys spending time with her partner Ken at his farm in Elmore or with her daughter Alex, who is a family lawyer in Melbourne. Her other passion is travel – if she's not at work, she's tripping around the globe somewhere recharging her batteries.

Outstanding Execution

Leonie recently sold my property in Strathdale despite an uncertain and challenging market. Her understanding of the market is second to none, and her attention to detail ensured a focus on the things that mattered to achieve a great outcome. I have no hesitation in recommending her to any vendor or potential buyer. Thanks again Leonie & DCK for a smooth sale process.

Excellent Service in Every Aspect

From the initial meeting with Leonie and Kaye we realised that we were in great hands, no fluffing around down to earth, straight to the point, and advise that proved to be spot on. Communication was a big plus, we were always informed about how the development of the sale was going from day one, which made the whole process so much more relaxed for what is a stressful time. Honestly could have given more stars!!

Appreciation for Leonie's Work

We would like to extend our appreciation for the amazing work done by one of your agents, Leonie Butler. We have known Leonie for many years as an agent and a friend. She sold our house a few years ago and was recently instrumental in negotiating a successful offer to purchase on our behalf during the COVID-19 crisis. It is a well-known fact that we can be very demanding as customers, it is not always easy to find a property that will satisfy all our requirements. We appreciate the endless hours (within and outside of business hours) that she dedicated to answering our questions and finding us a suitable property. She was always available and promptly returned calls and showed professionalism, patience and dedication to us. We can highly recommend Leonie as an agent.
