Brigitte & Jurgen

Barbara Holmes the greatest R/E Agent in the Burswood Peninsula.

Before our sale my wife and I were living in the Aqua Apartments for 5 years. During that time we had head of Barbara Holmes being an excellent real estate agent so we engaged Barbara to sell our apartment. Well it did take some time to sell but Barbara stuck with it and eventually the right buyer came along. Unfortunately it was a long drawn out settlement but throughout all the stress Barbara kept us in the loop at all times. Her professionalism is unsurpassed and it was a delight to be associated with Barbara. Barbara even found a great apartment for us to buy again here in the Burswood Peninsula. We would recommend Barbara highly.

Michael & Dawn

Friendly Burswood Agent

I had known Barbara for over 10 years when I bought my Burswood apartment through her and I am incredibly pleased with the service I received from Barbara. So when it comes to selling my investment property in Burswood I have no hesitation in engaging Barbara again. Barbara is highly knowledgable in the Burswood Peninsula apartment market. My Burswood apartment sold just after two weeks of listing. I highly recommend Barbara to anyone looking for an experienced, reliable and knowledgable professional.


Barbara was Excellent

From the moment we engaged Barbara to sell our apartment we were impressed by her knowledge of the local market. Barbara's communication skills were excellent, both email and face to face meetings were no trouble at any time, and at all times we felt Barbara had our best interests at heart. Barbara is a real pleasure to work with and we cannot recommend Barbara highly enough to potential clients.


Excellent service

It was an absolute pleasure working with Barbara. From start to finish, she made sure that we are always in the loop and was available to answer our queries. She is a true professional and would not hesitate to use her services again.

Diana & Jack

Profession, and effieient

Barbara knows the area very well. She's quick to get back to you with questions that you have. A pleasant person, which made the process less stressful. Highly recommend Barbara to future sellers or buyers. I gave her 4 stars, but that was due to not getting the amount for the sale I wanted, and less to do with Barbara.


Brilliant agent

Such a wonderful experience dealing with Barbara Holmes and Blue Chip Real Estate. Barbara went above and beyond in her service. Her communication was excellent so we were always kept in the loop with what was happening. She worked extremely hard to get the property sold at the best price possible. I would definitely recommend Barbara to anyone looking to sell their property in Burswood.

Christine & Robert


Barbara was very helpful and professional at every stage of the sale. She made the procedure very smooth between us and the buyer and we always felt safe with her guidance.

Susan & Derek

Barb was great throughout the sales process

We had purchased our unit about 6 years ago and Barb was the selling agent then. This year when we decided to relocate to Melbourne we got in touch with Barb to help us sell the property. Throughout the process Barb was very helpful and was able to facilitate the lease and sale of the property and made sure we got overall the best possible outcome. There were a few glitches during the process but Barb was able to overcome them professionally. She kept us informed on all aspects.


Thanks Barbara

We sold our unit after giving up on the sale when Barbara was approached by a new buyer. The sale was complex as we then had to re negotiate a purchase of a unit we always wanted. All sold and bought within 2 weeks. What a great effort. Thanks

Kim and Janine

Hassle free

I would have no hesitation in recommending Barbara as your agent. She is knowledgeable, helpful and prompt in her work. I would certainly use her again if needed.


The legend that is Barbara Holmes

It is difficult for my wife and I to find the right words to describe Barbara without sounding that we are related! But with a little help from Tina, we would have to say Barbara is simply the best. Achieving the best outcome not only for us but also for the buyer. Irina and I highly recommend you engage Barbara Holmes with your next sale.

Purchase of Apartment From Barbara Holmes

From the start it was the most professional approach I have ever got. We were at ease all the time, we never felt pressured to any decision. Barbara listened to our needs and was extremely helpful with all our enquiries. Nothing was a problem for Barbara.


Very accommodating

Barbara, was brilliant throughout the entire process. She had terrific knowledge and was able to impart that knowledge so that we were forearmed with appropriate information. Nothing was too much trouble. Barbara, made herself available after hours so that we were able to view the property in the evening. Could not fault and her communication with us was excellent.

Local expertise!

Barbara was very professional and candid from the get-go. She gave honest opinion and advice (which all worked out) and kept us abreast of all the potential buyers, after each home open. We were quite shocked that she was able to secure an offer given the circumstances and the market sentiments for high end apartments, in 3 weeks! Kudos to Barbara and team!

Barb has been in the game for a long time and knows the business.

Rental management and selling my house

Allana did a great job in overseeing the leasing of and eventual sale of our South Guildford home. Allana was all over the details and took the stress out of the process. I would happily recommend her services.


Selling made easy

Barbara did an amazing job selling my Burswood apartment ........ with her wealth of knowledge in the local area she had a buyer within days of listing and settlement not long after. It was absolutely seamless and I couldn't have asked for more - Barbara is a true professional in her field.


Quick Sale achieved at very near asking price

Barbara is an expert in selling apartments in the five apartment blocks & town houses at the complex we lived in. We had no hesitation in appointing her as our selling agent. The price we were asking was reasonably high compared to recent sales and to achieve this price she recommended " staging" the apartment. She organised this herself with the necessary suppliers and this enhanced the look of the property considerably. She kept us informed of the attendances at the "home opens" and provided feedback. We had two offers within weeks and sold at very near the asking price. She kept up very good communication throughout the negotiations and sales process. Highly recommended.....

Graham and Joyce

Professional courteous

Barbara was both professional and courteous in all interactions and carried through on agreed actions.

Melissa & James

Downsizing made easy!

The first time we met Barbara she made us feel very relaxed and comfortable. She was professional and able to answer any of our queries, and allay any of our concerns, and her local knowledge was invaluable. Barbara made herself available to assist with anything we needed at any time. We could not recommend her highly enough.

Mel & Gail

Really satisfied and happy

Allana has been a great help in firstly renting my property and then selling it efficiently and without delay. She is incredibly professional, easy to approach, proactive, knowledgeable on the market, honest and trustworthy. I have recommended her to friends and family already.

She always makes herself available to you, to view property's and to answer your questions. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she is someone that is completely dedicated to the work she does. Thank you Barbara, you provided us an amazing service and we are truly thankful to you.

Leanne was very helpful and proactive in getting my house sold

Leanne's market knowledge and professionalism was a very high standard. She kept me informed weekly on the progress of home opens and the market average in the area.


Excellent! Leanne is knowledgeable, experienced and I will definitely be calling her again!

I met Jim and Leanne at the property on a home open. I was very impressed by their knowledge and professionalism from the minute I walked in the door. The home was presented beautifully and all my questions over the period that I was considering buying were answered clearly and confidently. Should I require realty experience and knowledge in the future I will be calling Leanne and no one else. Can't recommend this lady enough. Thank you for a beautiful home, I am so happy!!


Very professional

Always replied straight away to any emails I sent and answered all of my questions. Yes I would recommend Leanne and Blue Chip Real Estate

Success in a tough market

She did what she promised and sold the property in an efficient and timely manner. Straightforwards, efficient, positive and proactive with a no-nonsense manner which was very much appreciated.


Superb efforts

Firstly a very big thank you for your superb efforts and dedication to help us sell the property, this in very difficult times. We are very sad that it had come to this but in the end it was simply not sustainable for us to hold onto our property in Perth. Even sadder is that we never got to actually live in the property one single day. But yes, it is time to move on and try our best to recover financially as we took a big loss over 5 years, including our initial cash investments put into the build. Thank you again, we still cant believe you actually got this one across the line – fantastic result given the circumstances! Dear Allana and Wendy – ladies, to both of you also a big note of thanks for your friendly and always helpful professionalism throughout the 5 year journey, you took great care of our property, managed it so very well and all along ensured we knew what was happening, sourcing good tenants and taking care of all the unpleasantries that also come about dealing with Landlords an Tenants I’m sure. Were it not for you, the property I believe would not have sold as well as it did. We relocated to Sydney, then to Jakarta Indonesia, then to South Africa….and you followed us all the way, never letting anything slip. Thank you again so much. Maretha and I wish for you only the very best in success, prosperity and good health in these times and always. Keep up the great work you do for Landlords and Tenants alike. Take Care and Stay Safe, who knows, somewhere in the future our paths may cross again.

Cornell and Maretha

Quick and Easy

We found Barbara most pleasant, knowledgeable, and easy to communicate with. She certainly understood our needs and worked around them. She was not in the least bit pushy.


I have found her to be simply the best

Barbara is super. She was so easy to communicate with. Very patient and helpful and kind.She contacted me daily. I found her easy to talk to and very honest. Within three weeks of signing up, my Apartment was sold to a cash buyer, and everything went so smoothly.Thank you Barbara. You are simply better than anyone in your profession, and I thank God that I listened to my family and friends to meet and talk with you. You came up trumps.


Hard work and persistence

Barbara got us a result through hard work and persistence in a challenging market


I would like to thank Barbara Holmes for her tenacity & professionalism.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Barbara Holmes for her tenacity. Through no fault of their own, Barbara and her dynamic team, at Blue Chip Real Estates, faced adversity at every turn and resolved every difficult situation efficiently. Barbara made the entire process easy for us, I know it was far from easy. I was treated and felt like a valued client. I would highly recommend Barbara because she is an outstanding professional, who has given me 100%. Barbara clearly has a wealth of knowledge and experience which helped achieve a positive result. I am grateful we choose Barbara to be our real estate agent

Nicholas & Nazlane

Great buyer experience

Purchasing our new property through Barbara has been a seamless, wonderful experience. From our very first inspection of the property, we have found Barbara to be a really good communicator, with excellent follow up. Barbara has a warm professional approach, and is very knowledgable on all aspects of the building, and the area. We would highly recommend Barbara as our Real Estate Agent.


Our sale completed

Over an extended period I have dealt with Barbara and she has been my first choice each time. Barbara lives at and breaths Burswood fulltime and is professional in her approach, within this extremely hard market at Burswood. Therefore, as a contract was unable to be filled, the sale was made below expectations - market force. Her professional approach goes beyond the norm to clear any listing and bring joy to her clients. Barbara at Burswood everytime, for a Happy settlement.

Kevin and Patricia

Great Advice and in touch whenever we needed her

Prompt, did what she said, high standard, knew the market, gave clear advice. We were overseas and she worked very hard for us.


Great communicator

With Barbara’s help, we sold our apartment in less than a year in this market which is pretty good. She is very approachable, responsible and incredibly generous with her time (including mornings, evenings, and even the weekends over the course of several months). She always answered our questions promptly and explained every part of the process clearly and thoroughly. Despite many challenges she had (Sellers in Brisbane-Au, buyers in USA and the property in Perth-Au), she managed to get the job done painless and straight forward. We highly recommend her.

Honari and Maryam

A Testimonial from someone who didn’t buy from Barbara.

So sorry to have to tell you – at the same time truly rapt for my Aunt, but she managed to secure another apartment in Burswood. I – and all the extended family including children overseas in South Africa, Singapore, etc. – really appreciate your obvious passion for the area and giving us very good options to make the move to Burswood easier. Furthermore, your sincerity and honesty was greatly appreciated. Any seller would be silly to go to any other agent but you in the area!! Warmest, Barb

Barbara R

Great Service

I have worked with Leanne for many years and have always found her level of service and professionalism to be at the highest level. I would definitely use Leanne for my future real estate needs in the Carlisle and surrounding suburbs.

Recommended Agent - 03 Apr 2018

Barbara is an extremely competent sales agent. I was originally not in a position to continue with an offer on the property but Barbara negotiated extensions of time to enable the purchase (dependent on sale of another property). In the end, the purchase went through smoothly thanks to the efforts of Barbara. If I am to sell the property in the future I would engage Barbara and feel confident of a fair result.


Excellent Agent - 12 Mar 2018

Excellent Agent - 12 Mar 2018 We have found Barbara really good to work with and asked her to sell 2 properties of ours in the past. Barbara is very accommodating and easy to deal with and we would certainly recommend to anyone interested in selling their property especially in the local area of Burswood. Barbara lives locally and as such is well known. We believe this also has contributed to her contacts and keeping up to date with what's happening in the local area. Highly recommended. Thanks Barbara, kind regards Denise & Claire

Graham and Lynne

Leanne & Team amazing.  They helped us secure the home of our Dreams.

Exceptional Professional and Friendly Service. My husband said "Leanne please make it happen". And so she did - Leanne secured us a home we could only dream about. All aspects of the sale were relaxed and stress free for us. Leanne's "Can do" attitude is to be commended and recommended.

Joseph & Louise

Great Agent

Very Happy with Leanne and her staff at Blue Chip. We rented out a house for several years then sold a property in a short time with easy change over for all. Nothing was any trouble extremely helpful and treated us as if we were special. So anyone needing to sell or buy Leanne at Blue Chip is especially there to help you.



Marita, Thank you so much for making the sale of Johns unit such an easy and seamless experience. You were terrific all the way through the process, we really wanted to sell quickly and without compromising on price and you made that happen. You really went above and beyond with your personal help to my brother, especially after his accident. As I was managing the sale from interstate, you gave me a high degree of confidence which was completely realised. Would certainly recommend you to anyone, all the best for the future.

Carol & John Moore

The Facilitator

28 February 2017 It is now February 2017 and we bought our property via Barbara Holmes in December 2016. At the time it would have been easy to write a positive review due to the excitement of a new property purchase. I have held of until now to write this review because with time to reflect upon the events leading up to the purchase I believe a better assessment of the real issues can be written. Having had dealings with over 15 Real Estate agents over the years, sometimes I was the seller other times the buyer, I believe I am able to make a realistic and unbiased assessment of how good or bad an agent is. Without a doubt, Barbara Homes is not only in the good section, she leads it. Barbara knows her product and better still she relates very well to people. While Barbara was engaged by the seller, she saw herself as the facilitator of a deal and while always acting professionally and maintaining confidences she made time to understand my situation and was more than accommodating with her time via inspections or providing information to me to enable me to arrive at a decision. Unlike other agents I believe that Barbara, while working for her seller, knew that there is no ‘real’ sale without a satisfied buyer and while she represented her seller strongly and fairly she also ensured that I was given every opportunity to make an informed decision. In a way she became a trusted friend and that trust resulted in a mutually beneficial sale. Barbara wasn’t just about the sale though, they come and go. Barbara was about the relationship, which is the basis of good business practice – the forerunner to the next sale. Smart, capable, hardworking, ethical and friendly – that’s Barbara Holmes. She is recommended.

That Says It All

I have been in the property market both residential & commercial for 38 years in Perth. I have dealt with more sales agents than I can recall. Barbara Homes has been the most professional, kind, approachable & informed Real Estate Agent I have dealt with. That says it all. Ernest


Don't hesitate to choose Barbara

Barbara was the best lady for the job! Professional, knowledgeable, honest, hard working. We cannot recommend her enough. Thanks Barbara! From Vince, Silvana and the Girls

Barbara was a very professional intermediary between the buyer and the seller, she managed expectations from both parties and ensured a fair negotiation process. Her speciality is Burswood and has deep knowledge in the area. Thanks,


Professional and realistic

At no time was there any pressure to drop our price. Very conscientious approach and always with the customer's best intention in mind. Demonstrated strong empathy and understanding to our needs and concerns. Our extended period of sale did not diminish Barbara's enthusiasm which assisted us to reach our goal. Barbara was always available and contactable. She provided professional and realistic advice - no bullshit.

Peter and Dennis

Well informed - certainly recommend.

It had been a pleasure to have Barbara represent us. She commands a strong knowledge of the market and its conditions, is thorough in her approach, shows good care and kept us well informed throughout the whole process. I would certainly recommend her to prospective sellers.

Property purchase

On a very quick inspection of approx 3 different properties in Burswood, this gave us an overview of choices available,we were then confident in putting in an offer on the property which we purchased. An auction was scheduled for the morning,so a quick decision was made by us, and successfully negotiated by Barbara.

Matt and Josie Perrella

Many thanks

I would like to thank you and earlier, Leanne for the professional way in which you have handled the property over the years and in particular the excellent state in which I found it today, on departure of the previous tenants. It is a shame that all tenants aren’t as good as they have been. Again many thanks, and I will recommend Blue Chip to any of my acquaintances.

Extremely professional, tenacious and positive

We listed our luxury apartment in Mandurah with Barbara right in the middle of the Global Financial Crisis. This was an extremely tough time in the Real Estate market, especially down at Mandurah. Barbara was extremely professional, tenacious and positive in dealing both with us and the prospective buyers. She continually introduced fresh and innovate ways to keep our listing ‘fresh’ and kept us informed every step of the way. She never lost focus on her goal – to sell our apartment at the best possible price – from the moment we listed our property until the sale was completed. Barbara is a beautiful lady as well as a true professional and I have no hesitation in recommending her to handle the sale of any property.

An agent that can get the job done

To whom it may concern, After having our home on the market with another agent for over 4 months we decided to give Jim Edwards a go at selling our home. We had virtually given up hope of selling our home with the previous agent as he said it was a tough market. But were we surprised after 10 days when Jim rang us with news of a great offer. We have now settled and sold our home & we can highly recommend Jim Edwards to anyone who wants an agent that can get the job done. We will definitely use Jim if ever we or our family are buying or selling. Thank You

Vibrant and enthusiastic

To Whom It May Concern, I have known Leanne Edwards for three years, firstly as the licensee and property manager at FPD Savills and then as Director/licensee and property manager at WA Prestige Properties. Leanne’s vibrant and enthusiastic nature was catchy. She had the ability to get the best out of the people around her by simply being present. Her dedication and commitment to her clients was obvious, as she treated each and every individual property under her care as she would her own. In my 18 years in the real estate industry, I can easily say I have not had the pleasure of working alongside a property manager who I felt I could feel completely comfortable in caring for my clients. Leanne is the exception. I have no hesitation in recommending Leanne to anyone seeking a loyal, competent, diligent and trustworthy manager for their property. Her professional approach and integrity is well respected within the industry, and her services are regularly sought by The Real Estate Institute of W.A. as a lecturer and an excellent example to new and upcoming property managers in the Real Estate industry. This is an acknowledgement in itself of the industries recognition of her fine standing commitment to those around her.
