"Second to none" in the Docklands real estate game

The team at Barry Plant believe its Docklands product knowledge is “second to none”.

Barry Plant has been a key player in the Docklands real-estate market for the past 12 years.

According to director Daniel Cole, this makes it Docklands’ longest-serving agency.

“We were selling and renting properties before any other agent in Docklands,” Mr Cole said.

The business first started operating in Docklands from a Port Melbourne base, but moved to a Docklands office 10 years ago.

“As soon as the first opportunity came up, we moved in,” Mr Cole said.

The business was first based under the Watergate building but has since moved to a Bourke St address and now has a second office at Harbour Town.

According to Mr Cole, the agents at Barry Plant have developed a wealth of knowledge about the area, with many of them being long-term employees.

Mr Cole himself has been selling apartments for his entire real estate career and said he strongly believed Docklands was the premier location for apartment living in Melbourne.

“Once upon a time everyone talked about St Kilda as the place for prestige apartments. I think Docklands outshines St Kilda, Toorak, Beaconsfield Parade, all of that,” he said.

And Barry Plant Docklands is one of the most awarded offices in the Barry Plant group.

The business is part of a network of more than 80 Barry Plant offices and was recently recognised at the annual Barry Plant awards night.

The Docklands branch won the sales award for most improved office, leasing consultant Adam Diamond was named leasing officer of the year and Rhiana Molfese was awarded outstanding marketing co-ordinator.

“It’s a great achievement for all of us. We’ve all worked really hard over the past year so it’s great to be recognised,” Ms Molfese said.

According to Ms Molfese and Mr Cole, the Barry Plant team has a passion for Docklands.

“Everyone who works here really loves the area and we really try to support it. I think that shows in our work,” Ms Molfese said.

And Mr Cole said Barry Plant Docklands would continue to serve Docklands’ real estate needs.

“As Docklands grows we’re growing too,” Mr Cole said.

You can find Barry Plant Docklands at 818 Bourke St or at 420 Docklands Drive. Contact Barry Plant Docklands on 9936 9999.
