About MacLeod Real Estate

It's easy to say that we are different and we can offer the world in an oyster shell….but what makes us special?

Vanessa MacLeod launched MacLeod Real Estate in March 2009. She had worked in the property industry for years, so knew the industry's strengths – and weaknesses. She wanted an agency with a difference – one that provides the best service and the most honest and kindest real estate agency in Australia, an agency that broke the mould.

A business where the culture was based on ethics and values, one that attracted the best listings – and importantly a service that is accessible to everyone whether they are based locally or overseas with the use of technology and forward thinking. A real estate agency still committed to providing the best service for buyers and sellers, getting clients the best price and making the process as stress-free as possible.


Vanessa is committed to running an ethical business, based on values. She achieves this by taking a keen interest in people, looking after the best interests of her clients by providing experienced advice and guidance, and spending every working minute trying to get things right. When she gets things wrong, she is the first to apologise and learn from the experience to make sure there is no next time.

Vanessa knows what can be done, and that's the way she's determined the business will operate like this from the day she first opened for business until the day she retires from the helm.

Vanessa's reputation is on the line – that's why her name and face front the business – that's what makes her business special.
