"I have recently had the pleasure of working with Theo whilst initially leasing, then selling my home in Pascoe Vale and while I have brought and sold a number of properties I have never before encountered such a level of excellence.
Assisting with everything from the timing of when to place the property on the market along with some honest suggestions regarding any changes he thought may attract an increased number of buyers, through to the negotiations of a deal which was beyond my expectations however also suited the purchaser, Theo was both patient and thorough throughout the entire process.
I found Theo to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if I was his only vendor. He returned calls and emails on the same day and i never felt like a burden or unimportant. Theo is a genuine professional with extensive real estate experience and vast knowledge of the area.
I am pleased to recommend Theo Panay to anyone looking to buy, sell or lease a property. He consistently goes above and beyond in order to please his clients and achieve the best outcome for all parties involved, and should I ever require any type of property advise or service in the future he will be the first person I speak to."

"We really enjoyed working with Theo Panay of Barlow McEwan Tribe, as he was so personable and easy to talk to especially when it came to listening to our many concerns and worries.
Theo provided regular communication updates especially in regard to buyer feedback, contract requests and was very capable in identifying genuine offers from the not so genuine ones.
Nothing was too much for Theo especially when he had to open our home for private viewing on 13 occasions in 17 days!!
He was in tune to our needs and strongly negotiated on our behalf to offers received prior to the Auction.
The excellent Auction result is testimony to the "on ground" buyer work that eventually ensured that the interested enquirers becoming genuine bidders during the Auction.
We were also very pleased with the online and printed advertising and he was very quick to make changes as requested.
Thanks Theo, we were over the moon with our Auction result!!"

"My Uncle Roy Shearer a lovely gentlemen in his 90 odd years contacted Theo Panay from the property group Barlow McEwan Tribe and asked if he could come around and look at his premises and discuss with him an estimation on his property - this was late 2016.
On meeting and greeting Theo we could not have hoped for a better realtor, Theo was honest, and had an excellent integrity towards my elder Uncle, and spent a considerable time going over the property and discussing any questions my Uncle raised without a bother. I personally found Theo’s attitude enlightening. Theo gave my uncle an estimate and although at that time there was no actual sale involved Theo was happy to leave a card and call in from time to time, just to check my Uncle Roy was doing ok.
Some months later my Uncle became ill was hospitalised and shortly passed away. Theo stepped into the breach and consulted with the executors placing the house on the market, organising literature, Auction dates, Signs and working diligently with interested buyers, to see the house the house meet market expectations and also to meet the value earlier quoted in his first visit to my Uncle.
I can say that his honesty & integrity stood out – nothing was a bother, but most of all Theo worked well with both the Vendors and prospective purchasers. I would fully recommend Theo Panay Barlow McEwan Tribe to everyone and all - if looking at selling your premises you could not ask for safer hands.
With upmost appreciation for all your kindness and work."

"Theo was one of 3 staff at BMT assisting with the sale of my former home. It was a very difficult sale amidst the trauma of an acrimonious marraige breakdown.
Theo was the only agent I could communicate with easily. He did his best to see that I was kept in the loop regarding the management of the sale and responded to my calls promptly and he did this with compassion."
