The C.R. Martin Property Management Team

  • I wish to express my thanks and gratitude to Clive Martin for the exceptional help and assistance he provided during the purchase of my property. Clive’s competent negotiation skills, professional and courteous attitude made buying a house a pleasant experience. At all times approachable, ready with advice, yet never intrusive, he also won the respect of my solicitor by promptly forwarding relevant papers and information. I have already recommended Clive Martin to friends planning a move to Bendigo and I will happily continue to do so in the future.
  • I was very satisfied with the service received during the sale, and would not hesitate to recommend Clive Martin… of Bendigo’s top estate agents.
  • We very much appreciate the extra time and effort you gave in the unusual circumstances encountered with this sale. We would recommend Clive to any of our family and friends moving to the area. Once again, many thanks for your attitude and friendly manner.
  • Having never had our property for lease before, my husband and I were a little unsure about the whole process.  The girls at CR Martin explained everything in terms we understood and have gone above and beyond what we could have expected.  The application process has produced fabulous tenants and we cant speak highly enough of the service we have received.
  • Janelle has been very helpful in managing our property in Bendigo while I am working interstate. The communication and constant updates are appreciated. I can rely on Janelle and the rest of the crew to look after my interests while I am working away.I would have no difficulty in recommending the CR Martin property management team to anyone considering a rental manager.
  • I would just like to mention that I was happy with CR Martin Real Estate Agents for helping me find my new home.

    I have every confidence in recommending them to people who are selling or buying a house.

  • I wish to thank you for the professional way in which you marketed and sold my house in Napier Street, Eaglehawk. Your organised approach and skilled communication resulted in this event having a rewarding and wholly satisfying outcome. The information supplied to me was complete and informative leaving no surprises. I would be pleased to recommend you to potential vendors you have as I feel confident you place priority on client satisfaction.
  • A huge thank you from all of us.  The whole family is very appreciative of the effort you have put in for Mum and for us, and i am especially appreciative as the one on the spot.
  • Just writing to let you know what a great assest Don is to your team.....he gave me enormous moral support.  He kept me positive all the way through to the end.
  • As we had only 30 days to find a house, we were able to purchase a property through CR Martin.  We found Don and the staff at CR Martin were very accommodating.
  • We have had CR Martin manage our property for twelve months now and have always found the property managers very approachable and informative.  When we ring, they are always friendly and helpful.  When we leave messages, they are always prompt in returning our calls. We are more than happy with the service we receive from CR Martin.
  • Clive Martin was recommended to us.  We were looking for an agent to look after our interests and found this in Clive.
  • We are new to this and the leasing of our property was very thorough.  It was important to us to get the right people that like where they will be living.
  • We have been property investors for over ten years and have dealt with numerous property managers in this time.  We have found the staff at CR Martin to be friendly and professional and they always provide prompt quality service. We look forward to our continuing relationship with everyone at CR Martin.
  • I am very happy with CR Martin's professionalism and handling of my rental property.
  • As multiple business owners and professional property investors with a young family, our time is precious.  We don't need the hassles of chasing tenant issues on top of our already busy schedules.  When we chose Janelle and the team at CR Martin to manage our properties, we knew we were making the right decision. Janelle is truly a remarkable person in the property management field - she treats each of our properties with the respect, care and consideration of her own. We were also impressed with the entire team culture, and their professional and proactive business approach.  The CR Martin Property Management Team are very proficient, detailed and systemised, they produce consistent results, provide timely communications and are an absolute pleasure to deal with. With any business - it's all about people dealing with people and these guys have got it right. Thank you, we wouldn't look anywhere else.
  • CR Martin Real Estate have been very helpful in finding us a good tenant.  They are reliable and when something needs to be done, they get it done promptly.  They also keep us up to date with the property and offer good service. Thank-you.
  • I wouldn't hesitate to use your services again....always got informed in time about any issue, well organised and helpful in getting it ready for sale.  Thank you CR Martin
  • To be honest, I do not hear much from CR Martin and this is what I need as a landlord! I work full time and rely on contacts that the staff at CR Martin have established to make issues disappear and at a reasonable price.  When contact is made, I know the staff have my interests in mind - that's reassuring!
  • It is indeed a pleasure to use CR Martin for all our real estate needs.
  • The ladies at CR Martin are always very pleasant on the phone and very helpful with their service.  Their manner reflects their professionalism.
  • We did our research and looked a lot but CR Martin made all the difference to our choice.

    Thank you Don Richardson for making our transition from the farm back to the CBD more enjoyable with your "easy to work with" team of sales and staff who were lovely to deal with from start to finish.

    Even though the choice of the home we were to live in was up to us, if it hadn't been for your helpful patience and understanding, we would probably not have been as lucky as we are today to be happy with just the right house for us.

    Thank you for everything.

  • Having dealt with numerous real estate agents in the past due to the nature of our business, I would recommend CR Martin for their committment to getting the job done.  This means getting the result required in the shortest period of time.

    Keep up the good work.

  • CR Martin were wonderful to deal with while selling my property. Clive and the team were honest and provided excellent feedback to me at all times. I would definitely deal with them again and have no hesitation in recommending them.
  • Clive is very professional, he presents well, is friendly and offers a down to earth approach. He kept in contact with us which we appreciated.

    Thank you Clive for continuing to keep in contact with us and giving us feedback. Thanks also for walking us through the sales process, paperwork and costs.

  • As buyers of property we were very pleased with the care and consideration shown to us by CR Martin. Keep up the great work!
  • Excellent real estate agents with follow up. Results were 100%, thank you as we had no hassels and great management.
  • We met Don at a house inspection. We wanted to engage a real estate to help us sell our home. Friends had worked with CR Martin to sell their house, we asked Don to appraise our house and we liked his manner. We found both agents, Don & Ann, to be very approachable and responsive.

    We would recommend the team at CR Martin to anyone selling or buying property. They are honest and have a whole team approach to valuing a property.

  • I had to deal with Clive and staff whilst selling my fathers house. They were approachable, competent and kind. Selling your family home can be quite emotional/stressful and everyone at Clive Martin was understanding and just got on with all aspects of selling without me having to follow up or check on things and this was particularly helpful given I was having to organise things from Melbourne. I especially remember Ann Kenny who I dealt with initially, being so positive, encouraging and nothing was too much trouble for her. And pleasantly surprised that the property sold so quickly!


  • Our decision to call CR Martin was via word of mouth. Yes our promises and expectations were lived up to. Thankyou to Clive for being so thorough, keeping us informed, and ahcieving a sale price we were happy with. The professionalism and friendly service continued after contracts were signed right through to settlement.  Thank you and kind regards. 
  • Mel Thatcher was very efficient, friendly and knowledgeable.  Prompt service, good doing business with her.
  • I  have known Mel for 20 years.  Great result in the sale of my home and purchase of my new property. I highly recommend Mel.
  • Thank you so much for your time.  I really appreciate your excellent customer service and would recommend anyone looking for property to you for sure

    Positioning our property in the right price range is not the only key factor of selling our property, the way Clive took it to market was spot on. Clive totally focused on the positives of the block and really honed in on these. CR Martin equals professionalism and a quick sale.

  • I called CR Martin Real Estate because of previous dealings. Their integrity, promises and expectations were all met and i would be happy to recommend their agency to my family and friends.
  • Thank you Melissa Thatcher (CR Martin) this is twice now I have trusted your expertise and it has well and truly paid off.

    Sold in only two weeks at a price I am more than happy with.

    Brilliant effort

  • Don Richardson was always helpful, considerate and kept us up to date with advice regarding process of sale. Always pleasant, sincere, professional and polite throughout.

    Thanks to all concerned at CRMartin and Staff

  • I was very pleased with Don Richardson's selling approach to both my properties at Yamba Lane and my parents home at Morshead Court. He was very good to me in his approach to the sale of these properties.

    Having had a stressful 2012, Don's encouragement helped and I would highly recommend Don to sell any property to anybody he explains everything to his customers. He has a very good personality, which I liked very much.

  • CR Martin sold my parents property in 2009 with a minimum of fuss, within three weeks of the first viewing. They have also taken care of our family home through their rental department, whilst we have been living interstate.

    We have now sold this property through CR Martin, this was conducted in a smart, quick and professional way. Our dealings with this agency have always been on a high level and standard.

  • Hi Bridie. Thanks SO much for thinking of us and taking the time to select properties and let us know about them. We have signed up for a home in Epsom and will become Bendigo residents in the new year.
    I'm sorry we didn't get to sign up through you because your customer service is excellent.
    Have a lovely Christmas and perhaps we will run into each other around town.
  • C R Martin were able to provide me with the information and support to purchase my first home.  The staff were at all times willing to answer questions and guide me in the purchasing process.
  • Excellent service from all at C R Martin Real Estate.
  • Thank you very much Paul for your unrelenting enthusiam and optimism selling Napier Street.  Money now safely in the bank!
  • Paul McKenna was excellent. Due to the circumstances, Paul was placed in a very stressful situation. At all times he was professional and courteous and kept us fully informed at all times.
  • Dear Paul

    Bernard & I would like to thank you for all you have done for us to sell our home.  I know at times our stress levels were hard to handle, but you hung in there for us.  There is not many out there that would have put the time in that you did for all the open days, and you got the price for us.  That to us, shows that you know how to value, and you put the right price on.

    Many thanks.


  • I purchased my new property through your agency and sold my property for a good price through your agency. Mel had a positive attitude to selling my home.  Thanks to Mel and the team for a professional and fast sale of my property. There was only about five weeks from Start to Sold.
  • CRMartin were able to provide me with the information and support to purchase my first home.  The staff were at all times willing to answer questions and guide me through the purchasing process.  Melissa assisted me with the purchase. She was helpful and had detailed knowledge of the area and answered any questions raised.
  • I would like to recommend CR Martin Real Estate to anyone wishing to sell their property. The office staff were helpful, friendly & courteous. In particular Paul McKenna, the agent responsible for my property was excellent in all areas. He kept me informed of every development, he was honest, open and extremely helpful with his advice. He was also prepared to put in extra time and effort at all times to secure the best deal for me.  Thanks again CR Martin & in particular Paul for a job well done.
  • Paul McKenna is a very diligent, honest man that worked closely with me to obtain the best sale. He kept in contact at all times, allowing me to make decisions with him.
  • I just wanted to thank you Paul for your part in the process, and the manner in which you liased with us. We were impressed and grateful with the way the property was presented and the way it was left for us.  The house and garden had been well cared for and left with respect. Thank you again Paul, it was a pleasure dealing with you.
  • Just wanted to say thank you again for all of your help, we love the house and your service was fantastic throughout the whole process.

  • Thank you so much for all your work in helping us to sell our home. We would like to express our appreciation for your patience and flexibility - especially as we were absent over the Christmas/New Year period also!  Your positivity and professional manner made this process quite stress free - thanks!



    Suzie & Michael

  • Good service when phoning & making enquiries. I did phone a different agent first and was not impressed with their service. A pleasure to deal with. The communication was outstanding. 





    B Moore

  • We were looking for an agent that could push and sell the property asap. Mel was fantastic and Paul was very good and certainly they both lived up to their promises and our expectations. We got the best results anyone could ask for.

    We definatley would recommend CR Martin Real Estate to anyone.

  • Very happy with every aspect of our purchase through CR Martin Real Estate. Paul McKenna was friendly, co-operative and prepared to go the extra mile to keep us informed. Very helpful at every stage of the process of selling the property.
  • After really bad experiences with other agents, very surprised that there are helpful and friendly agents out there going far and beyond to help. Thank you Paul.
  • We are very happy with the way Don has managed the sale of our family home.  He was in constant communication with us throughout the process of the sale. The house was advertised for about 6 weeks prior to out Auction, exactly 2 days after the auction we sold the house.

    Thank you Don once again for the quick sale of our 2nd Property.

    Dick & Pauline Moverley

  • We found your sales person Don easy to speak with looking out for our interests and eager to be of assistance where possible

    He was always approachable and had a good understanding of local market. 

    Communication throughout CR Martins was efficent and up to date.  Gratefully appreciated timely feedback at all stages.

  • We were referred to CR Martin Real Estate by friends.  The agent acting for us was Melissa Thatcher she met all expectations with good communication and follow up, Melissa self-assured us about market trends and was a very competent real estate agent.  Melissa was good at her job and did so very professionally and got the sale done within the time frame.  Many thanks to Melissa
  • CR Martin representative Don was at all times courteous and helpful

    We were able to sell our home within two weeks and purchase another and move within a very short time.

  • I always look for ease of communication and the feeling that they know what they are doing.  I am extremely happy with Paul and CR Martin.  

    Thankyou so much for all your care & efforts to ensure that the purchase of my new property went through smoothly and easily I'll certainly recommend CR Martin in the future

  • Was looking for a Real Estate agent with commitment and would live up to their promises and expectations. I was happy with Melissa at CR Martin. The advertising was good as well as the timing of open days. My house was sold quiet quickly with minimal fuss. Thank you
  • We sold our place on bush block; not an easy sell as many lookers but few genuine buyers. Our agent Paul McKenna was always punctual, upbeat and courteous to all.  Spent a few open days with just us for company.  Finally buyer appeared and bingo.  We will use CR Martin again.

    P.S if you ask nicely, Paul may walk on water for you!

    Bob Saunders

  • Our dealings with CR Martin and Sales Agent Don Richardson was efficient helpful and very friendly.  We especially enjoyed their integrity and no fuss process of both the purchase and subsequent rental of our property. Looking forward to doing business in the future.
  • Don would have to be the most pleasant and obliging man that I have met in Bendigo to do with business with.

    Keep up the good work. I would highly recommend to you any business I possibly could.

    Thanks so much.

  • With sincere thanks for your enthusiasm, hard work and professional manner in the successful sale of our house.
  • I was looking for an agent  who advertised in the weekly.  A quick call linked me to Paul McKenna and from there I knew I had made the right decision.

    For me it was about finding someone who appreciated my house and its differences and most importantly someone I felt that I could relate to.  Absolutely, the whole journey was made so much easier by having Paul by my side.  I truly can't thank him enough.

    From the first phone call to the day I gave in the keys my experience with CR Martin particular Paul McKenna was absolutely wonderful.  Selling the family home is never an easy decision but I knew I had made the right decision in choosing CR Martin.

    My thanks go to the entire team, but importantly my gratefulness goes to Paul, a kind and gentle man who not only cared about selling my home but was also sure he put his clients first.

  • We want to express our thanks for all the work you have put into presenting a most professional quotation for the sale of our house.  It has been a pleasure dealing with you and as I mentioned at our meeting we still had a number of options to consider and we have considered and has decided to stay where we are for the time being.  If we have a change of heart anytime in the future first we will contact you.  Thanks once again for a most professional presentation and we wish you every success in the future.
