Torquay has always been a popular holiday destination, particularly for people from the Western District of Victoria. After World War II, Basil Hayden realised that many others from Ballarat and the surrounding region shared his family's passion for coastal holidays and he determined to start a business to service this market.
In 1949 B.E. Hayden & Co commenced trading and today it stands as the oldest continually operating business in Torquay. Now managed by the third generation of the Hayden family, Hayden Real Estate has grown from a single room, staffed by family members on their weekends and summer breaks, to the largest and most successful agency in Torquay.
Hayden Torquay provides the coast's sole full service real estate agency; expert Property Managers, the largest and most experienced team of Sales Consultants, a dedicated Commercial Property department and the only agency with Qualified Valuers on staff.
Our team of Sales Consultants has consistently, year in, year out, taken more enquiry, completed more transactions, and had more satisfied buyers and sellers than any other agency in Torquay. From single blocks of land to multi-million dollar residences and everything in between, we have a breadth of property knowledge, a level of capability and a database of information that is unsurpassed in our market.
Hayden is also the only agent with a department dedicated exclusively to Commercial & Development Property. Retail, industrial, office and speciality properties present unique challenges, as do developments both large and small, which are not met by the skill sets of residential agents.
Unlike most agencies, we have qualified experts to attend to all matters relating to the sale, lease and management of commercial real estate along with feasibility analysis, transactions (acquisition and sale) and project marketing for development sites.
Hayden Real Estate demonstrates proven experience in investment and development, having been directly involved as agents for a number of major subdivisions in the region. In addition, our Directors have varied experience in every facet of residential land subdivision, from master planning and feasibility studies, valuation, marketing and sales of development sites and developed stages lot by lot.
As the only agency prepared to offer this dedicated capability, it is little surprise that we manage and advise on more commercial and development property than all our competitors combined.
We are long standing members of the Real Estate Institute and are dedicated to providing service equal to no other. Our staff hold a range of formal qualifications plus membership of the Real Estate Institute of Australia, the Australian Property Institute, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Australian Marketing Institute. In addition, six of our team have achieved the highest level of qualification in the real estate industry and are designated Licensed Estate Agents.
Hayden Real Estate is, quite justifiably, proud of the company's history and the service we provide to our community. Indeed the name Hayden has become synonymous with Real Estate in the region.
As such, you can rest assured that when you deal with Hayden Real Estate, whatever your property matter, we have the background, knowledge and expertise to achieve what you deserve - Inspirational Results.
