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: Burdett, Alisa R Sent: Friday, 9 August 2019 8:13 PM To: Robert Ketterer Subject: Excellent Real Estate AgentDear Directors of DCK, I would like to send an email of acknowledgement and appreciation to Leonie Butler for her fantastic professionalism and ‘nothing’s ever too much to ask’ attitude. I have just recently sold my second house with Leonie Butler. Throughout both house sales, my family has been so happy with her service. She ensures the price range is appropriate (she is always spot on with this) and she has great communication between everyone involved. She gets to know her clients and makes everyone feel comfortable and at ease with what could actually be a very stressful time! Even when there are little issues, Leonie is there to sort them out. She always answers her phone out of the normal hours and will make follow up phone calls at night or on a Sunday. Whenever anyone asks me who a good real estate agent is in Bendigo, I always say Leonie Butler. I cannot find anything she needs to improve on and I just want to make sure you know how respected and valued she is. I have full confidence in Leonie selling my house for the best possible price and that the process will always be as smooth as possible. Your company is very lucky to have her as an agent at your firm. With thanks,

Pleasure to deal with selling our home

19 July 2019Robert Ketterer DCK Real Estate 35 Queen Street Bendigo VIC 3550Dear Rob, Re: Sale 93 Rowan Street, Bendigo Recently Mark and I sold our home using DCK, and I felt it appropriate to let the DCK Directors know of our fantastic experience when dealing Leonie Butler. Leonie was a pleasure to deal with from the moment I asked her about the apartments for sale at Carnegie Way. She understood that Mark and I were looking to sell our home at some stage and that there were sensitivities in relation to the management of the sale. Our desire was not to go to market with fanfare but achieve a good price for the property and have a long settlement period to allow our daughter to finish Year 12 with minimal disruption. To her credit Leonie assisted us to achieve the above quickly and with professionalism and a great deal of humanity. Please pass on our sincere thanks to Leonie.Kind regards,

Delighted with Mundy Street Sale

From: Nydia Jones Sent: Tuesday, 30 October 2018 3:33 PM To: Directors <Directors@dck.com.au> Subject: Sale of 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.

My home sold 2 hours after being listed online; amazing!

From: Wendy Johnson   Date: 26 February 2018 at 9:58:45 pm AEDT To: Robert Ketterer <robert@dck.com.au> Subject: Email Agent Hi Robert, I feel I need to let you know how pleased I am with the service I have received from DCK. 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
