Ben Flannagan (Director & Auctioneer)
As far as real estate history goes, you would be hard pressed to find somebody with more than Ben Flannagan. As a direct third generation agent, the vast majority of his childhood was spent in and around the real estate world; fast forward to the present and you have a lifelong ambition as Director and Co-Founder of Flannagan Peressini & Shaw. Always looking for the next and most innovative way forward, this complements his underlying desire and core mission to provide the highest level of commitment and communication, be the easiest to deal with, and achieve the best possible outcome for each and every transaction he manages. Core areas & skills: Negotiation - Being able to execute this at critical times is at the forefront of outstanding results, and sets Ben apart from the competition. This only comes about through extensive and continuing training; Communication - Often a widely complained about area of real estate (due to lack thereof) communication is the catalyst for a successful sales campaign; Auctioneering - As an already accomplished auctioneer, Ben's passion and drive to hone this craft sees him constantly training and pushing himself to improve. Already, he has been invited to auction at events outside of real estate, such as the Richmond Tigers Football Clubs Legends Gala (2015); Public Speaking - Complementing communication skills, Ben is a member of the Manningham Toastmasters and has won multiple speaking awards in his time there. Ben is proud to announce that Flannagan Peressini & Shaw was selected as a finalist in the coveted 2017 Australian Real Estate Business awards in the category of 'New Office of the Year', and was the only company from Victoria to be selected. And Ben was selected as a Finalist (and the only Agent in Victoria) in the "Rising Star" category, and at the awards night on 6 July he was announced as the Rising Star Winner.
What others said about me
Great agent! Ben was one of the most responsive and helpful agents I’ve dealt with (and I have moved house many times). He made the time to be available when it was convenient to me. He kept me fully informed every step of the way. Ben is a pleasure to deal with!
Dealing with Ben was an absolute pleasure. From the first meeting we knew we had found an Agent who is honest and that we could trust to have our best interests at heart. His communication and attention to detail were outstanding throughout the whole process of selling our home. Would highly recommend him to anyone and would ask him again for any sales in the future.
Ricky Talarico & Claire Gallagher
Great Service. As soon as we enlisted Ben Flannagan to sell our property, he worked non stop. We found him to be very proactive and he communicated well with us during the process, making sure we were aware of what was happening next and what our options were.
Mary-Anne & Ian Bruton
A Truly Fantastic Agent - Putting your home on the market and choosing an agent is no easy task. We interviewed 3 agents at great length, received their feedback and approach to marketing. Ben Flannagan stood out because he is personable, professional and an all round great guy. In a declining market we braced ourselves for a lower than expected result, but because of Ben’s drive and determination he got us a price that we were very happy to accept. Ben made contact and kept us in the loop on a daily basis. We couldn’t recommend Ben Flannagan more highly.
Jacquie & Jan Hacansson
Enthusiastic, reliable and very approachable. Ben's enthusiasm and attention to detail were exceptional. His approach to the sale of our home was confident and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend Ben's services.
Outstanding Agent - Ben engaged us from day one and kept us informed every step of the way. When negotiations were difficult he didn't waver from our mutually agreed position. To top it off his engaging personality and professional approach cemented our faith in him.
Chris & Steve Kent
Professional and Caring - Ben's professionalism, understanding, caring and enthusiastic nature made the sale of our house seamless. The reward for us was a positive experience with a positive outcome.
Jono & Adele Manzoney
From the first time we met Ben and his team we knew we had people that wanted to work for us and make the journey a smooth and liveable experience. They won the business over two other highly respectable local Agents. We were so impressed with the video they produced and all marketing material. All the way through the journey Ben and Georgia would keep us informed of what was going on. They answered all our questions with professionalism and went overboard with their extra touches on Open days for visitors. They delivered on everything they promised they would and at no stage did we feel let down or had to ask why didn't something happen. On the Auction day we were blown away with the number of people who attended and were so impressed with Ben who had to do some difficult negotiations with the final Bidder to secure our asking price. We knew we stretched Ben and his team on our Reserve but they came through with flying colours. Ben even assisted us after the sale with advice on a difficult matter that arose. We have sold 5 houses in 30 years and Ben and his team have been the best. We would highly recommend him to anyone. Peter & Debra Gebert - 88 Bible Street, Eltham

Five Stars! Strongly recommend this expert in the field agent that well and truly goes above and beyond to achieve the best possible outcome for his clients, in a timely manner and without feeling any pressure of having their own agenda. Ben's excellent communication skills ensure you are well-aware and informed of what's happening, why and how. FPS really make the eerie process of selling your home easy to follow and take the burden and stress off your shoulders. FPS are a fantastic and exciting agency. My family and I have had a very positive experience with them and will surely continue to work with in the future. Go with FPS, you won't regret it ;)
Not all heroes wear capes. Being a little hesitant in selling the property, the reassurance I got from Ben was second to none. He approached the situation with careful yet precise planning and with this we received the desirable outcome! He is a class act and is really reinventing the wheel when it comes to real estate. Couldn’t rate and recommend him any higher! Dylan Forster
Hi Ben Just a short note to congratulate you and your company on the speedy sale of our home. We had a schedule in place to put our home on the market at the beginning of November, but our circumstances changed and we asked if you could bring the sale forward by 3 weeks. This was initiated the next day and photographs, floor plans, brochures, and signs were ready for our first OFI within one week, and the sale completed within days. Your strengths are many, but your professionalism, and follow up in keeping us informed were 100%. We would not hesitate to recommend you and your company to any people wanting to sell their homes. Kind regards Alan & Ann Lonsdale

Hi Ben, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Georgia and the team for all of your help with our purchase of 86 Oronsay. We were so impressed with your professionalism and lack of bulls*** throughout the whole process, a refreshing change from 95% of the agents we met during the search for our first home. Your honesty, transparency, and willingness to help not just the vendors but also us during the process was much appreciated! Thank you again for helping us to buy our first home, and for making it such a smooth and easy process. If there is anything we can do re. reviews etc, please do let us know. Thank you Ben, and the FPS team. Kind regards, Wendy and Pierre
Wendy & Pierre
We had contact with a number of agents before engaging Ben to sell our home. Ben impressed the both of us from our very first meeting and that first impression was enhanced right through the process until completion of the sale. Ben displayed a genuine empathy with us and at all times kept us fully informed with all the procedures, viewings, potential buyers etc. Ben was able to be contacted at any time and he was prepared to spend as much time with us as we needed. He and his staff always acted in a professional manner and Ben was very practical and to the point with his advice. Ben gave us confidence that our home would sell and sell for an amount that we would be happy with. That outcome was achieved and we have no doubt that Ben's approach through the whole process contributed enormously to that outcome. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Ben.

Hi Ben, Etty and I are writing to you today to express our sincere thanks for the way you conducted the sale of our property. From the outset, we felt your sincerity. Your clear explanation of the whole process, as well as the fact that we would not be pressured to sell if we were not happy with the price, incurring no costs to us, made us feel safe in making such an important decision. Throughout the process, we enjoyed frequent feed back from you and your team. This gave us a feeling of calm; a necessary ingredient when selling one's own home. In the end Ben, the price you managed to get for us was above our expectations. This was an amazing result and one which makes us very happy to recommend you and your team at FPS to any potential vendor. Once again Ben, many thanks for a job well done and for an awesome result. All the very best for the future. Kind regards Etty & Ellis

We cannot fault Ben from his absolute professional manner, his communication was constant and consistent and at no time did we ever feel like we weren't his number one priority. Along with Georgia who was at every open early to make sure our home was perfect, they were an outstanding team, from day one to the photographer, the team in the office of FPS it was just seamless. We are so grateful to have found an outstanding agent such as Ben Flannagan. Fiona & Darryl Reid

We can't thank you all enough for making the process easy . We are eagerly looking forward to our next chapter, thank you so much Ben and Georgia for all your efforts.

“Ben was the most enthusiastic and passionate agent, l had complete confidence in him and his team every step of the way. Nothing was a problem for Ben and the results speak for themselves. I highly recommend FPS.” Sally Shaw – 74 Reichelt Avenue, Montmorency
Maturity Beyond His Years “When Ben came to the house to discuss the sale of my property he impressed me right from the beginning. His sincerity, honesty and knowledge shone through immediately. Nothing was too difficult and he always had a very positive attitude, he even offered to "roll his sleeves up" and help prepare the house for sale. I very highly recommend Ben to anyone selling their home, he is a very impressive and genuine young man.” Delice Carroll – 72 Zig Zag Road, Eltham
I found Ben to be an exceptional Real Estate Agent. He was very easy to talk to and automatically made me feel like he had my best interests at hand. His knowledge of the industry was fantastic and the staff that work with him are wonderful. He was very thorough and put so much hard work into selling my house. I appreciate all the effort and how he negotiated the best price for me. I would recommend Ben to anyone that was thinking of selling. He turned a very stressful time into a pleasant smooth transition. Thank you so much Ben. Coral – 26 Alban Street, Montmorency
Honest Agent We chose FPS to sell our home as their enthusiasm for our house was evident and was important to us after living here for 44 years. We also thought that the estimated and advertised price was an honest appraisal of our property for both us and the Vendors. The whole process was simplified and we sold within 2 weeks. We would highly recommend Ben and the team at FPS. Neil & Dianne Fletcher – 45 Patyah Street, Diamond Creek

Agent of the Year!!!!!! I can't speak highly enough about Ben Flannagan, he is a sincere, dedicated agent who made the selling of my home effortless. From the first meeting l had with him he was respectful, knowledgeable, personable and most of all a fabulous communicator. Ben went out of his way to keep me thoroughly informed throughout the entire process of the selling of my house and this was on my terms. He also offered valuable but sensible advice on improvements l could do to achieve the best price possible on my property. Everyone involved in the selling process connected to Ben was professional and respectful and again l can't speak highly enough of the team from the photographer to the stylist, they all went over and above and made the selling of my home an seamless process. I would highly recommend Ben Flannagan to anyone wanting to sell their home, knowing they would get a sincere, respectful agent doing the very best for them. Sally Beran – 15 Hotham Court, Diamond Creek
To whom it may concern; We engaged Ben Flannagan of Flannagan, Peressini and Shaw (Greensborough) to sell our home in Eltham after dealing with him months earlier. We had contacted him with requests for information regarding a property his company sold in an adjoining suburb. Ben's professional approach to our questions impressed us enough to keep him in mind when we decided to sell. Ben, Georgia and the team worked tirelessly to get a great result for us in 9 days- we'd engage his services again and have no reservations in recommending him and the company to our friends and family.

Dear Ben, Lucas & Georgia, “FPS” – The young new faces of real estate, supported by those with years of experience, in Brent & Tony. Our sincere thanks to you all. You ran a well planned campaign with good advice, no pressure, & frequent communication. We liked your relaxed & ‘down to earth’ attitude, whilst remaining professional with attention to detail. We’d also like to thank the many people, involved in the preparation & presentation of our property. You should be very proud of yourselves. We would definitely recommend your company to others, looking to sell, buy or rent. Thanks Ben, for your advice & assistance, regarding our potential Qld purchase, & especially for guiding us through all aspects of selling our much loved Eltham home of 27 years. A great result. (Though selling the home we love is “bitter-sweet”) We hope the new owners, Kostas & Saini & family, also enjoy living here, for many years. With admiration & appreciation, Kind regards, Helen & Ian - 7 Long Valley Way, Eltham

Hi Lucas, Just a short note to thank Ben, Tony, Brent and yourself for the outstanding result you achieved for the sale of our property at 3 Fiona Ct, Eltham. Throughout the whole process of the pre-market briefing, the photo shoot, the advertising, the open inspections, the continuous feedback regarding prospective buyers and then auction day, you guys were open and upfront with what our expectations should be. We all know in the end, the market has the final say in sale price, but the professionalism provided by the FPS team is a credit to your business and we believe was a large contributor to the final outcome. The auction itself was conducted with great exuberance. With Ben leading the charge and you, Tony and Brent giving him fantastic support, it can only be said that the team performance culminated in maximising the result. Added to that is the easy-going and down to earth attitude you guys display to your customers making a stressful exercise so much easier to deal with. Again, thank you for assisting us with the sale of our property and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your services to any future clients. Kind regards Damian and Deb Cresp Vendors: 3 Fiona Ct, Eltham

The recent sale of our house at 15 Antoinette Boulevard, Eltham, was conducted by Mr Ben Flannagan in an extremely professional and friendly manner. He was always polite, punctual, enthusiastic, well organised and although youthful was an accomplished auctioneer with a determination to keep us informed about all matters relating to the sale. His skill as a communicator was never in doubt with regular phone calls to let us know the latest information. His suggestions about presentation of the property were welcome as we had no experience of what was required and his “feel” for market values was completely accurate. We have no hesitation in recommending Ben to anyone with a property for sale, or in fact any matter regarding Real Estate. We believe he has a great future and his business acumen will take him a long way in his chosen career. We congratulate him and wish him well for the future. Brian and Dorothy McRae
