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.

From: Nydia Jones Sent: Tuesday, 30 October 2018 3:33 PM To: Directors <Directors@dck.com.au> Subject: Sale of XX Mundy Street, Bendigo Dear Directors On behalf of my husband Dean and myself, I’d like to let you know just how delighted we have been with the services provided to us by Leonie Butler and Kaye Lazenby. After getting to know us and what we were looking for, in 1996 Leonie helped us find and purchase our first family home. We have been extremely happy at our home, but earlier this year, decided a change of scenery was for us. With so many memories, the decision to list our home was a difficult one. The decision who to list our home with was easy – it was Leonie. Leonie understood that we have a strong connection to our home and provided us with a great deal of information around listing price, marketing and how to present our home for sale. We listened and did our best to do our part to ensure a successful sale. The day after our home was listed on the internet, a daily procession of potential buyers followed and after three days an offer. During our constant conversations in person, phone and text, Leonie again gauged a great understanding of what we were looking for in our next home and provided a great deal of feedback from the potential buyers. Not only was our home sold in under a week, Leonie had also arranged for us to inspect two properties she had appraised. So in a week, we not only sold our home, but also bought our new home. Leonie and Kaye have been very supportive throughout what could have easily been a stressful process and we are very grateful that we were lucky enough to have them by our side.

Leonie Butler has been my agent and has been wonderful throughout the process. My home was sold 2 hours after being listed on the Internet, amazing. Leonie brought the buyer for an inspection within an hour and half of listing. The sale was made within a few hours. I would like to mention that I have previously sold a house with DCK and have found all staff who came to view both my properties extremely friendly, professional and very helpful; Leonie herself certainly lived up to all my expectations re: DCK and more. I am very happy with my decision to go with DCK again. Would you please pass on my thanks to your Directors, Staff and Leonie. Regards Wendy Johnson

I am taking the time to express my gratitude to both Leonie, Kaye, during the time my home was on the market. Both Leonie and Kaye are consummate professionals worked tirelessly before,during and after business hours, keeping me up to date with phone calls, messages during the sale of my home.  It's all the little things, attention to detail, I believe that have made the difference to achieve a positive outcome in such a short space of time. Leonie took time to show prospective buyers around the Eaglehawk shopping centre and leisure centre, as purchasers live interstate. I would have no hesitation in recommending Leonie and Kaye to anyone who is looking to engage services of an agent within the Bendigo area. It would be greatly appreciated to pass on to Leonie and Kaye my sincere thanks as well as share this positive feedback with all other directors at DCK Yours Faithfuly, Glenys Brown

Regarding: General enquiry Property Address: not supplied From: Alison Lugg Email: aliluggXXXXXXX Phone: XXXXXXXX Preferred contact method: phone Message: Dear Robert, I am writing to express my gratitude to Leonie Butler for her excellent service in selling my property at 264 Carpenter St Sth. Leonie was recommended to me by a friend and I am very glad to have followed up that recommendation. I have bought and sold a few houses prior to this and have never encountered an agent as effective and professional as Leonie. She was efficient, knowledgeable and an excellent communicator throughout the process. Leonie worked hard to achieve a better price for the property than I had expected and it sold in 4 days - before even going to open house. In my view Leonie is a credit to your organisation and I would strongly recommend her to anyone wanting to sell a house in the Greater Bendigo area. Regards Alison Lugg
