John Bisignano is an esteemed estate agent who brings over two decades of experience to the table, having begun his career in the City of Darebin in 1997.
Our fearless leader started out in a small boutique agency, equipping him with a deep expertise in all aspects of Real Estate, all the way from office administration through to property management and sales! Since then he has run a franchise group branch, recognised as one of the groups top sales performers in Victoria for many years in a row and gaining valuable insights into how the big guns operate.
Now, John has decided to break away from the franchise to reclaim his focus on relationship building and remove all boundaries to his serviceability - because you deserve to work with who you want, regardless of territories! He’s committed to getting your repeat business with a passionate and knowledgeable twist you won’t find anywhere else.
Aside from his demonstrated professional history, John stands out from the crowd with a direct, reliable and personal approach that will leave you scratching your head as to why you didn’t find him sooner!
John’s unbounded enthusiasm is contagious. His friendly approach and attention to detail in preparing your property is unmatched, and he has pioneered a creative approach to creative copy-writing and marketing which leaves the typical repetitive advertisements you see out there in the dust.
Here’s what John has to say about his decision to start THE BISI AGENT:
“Establishing THE BISI AGENT in July 2019, has been a huge passion project of mine, as I wanted to take my new and existing clients in the Inner North on a journey to fresh, youthful and innovative Real Estate with added personality. If you’re looking for proven results, a personalised experience, local knowledge and a little fun along the way, I’m sure THE BISI AGENT is the place for you for all your Real Estate needs. .”
John will certainly make an impression on you in so many ways. The decision to choose an agent will be easy once you get an introduction.
" Great Negotiator "
We engaged John as he came recommended. I found him to be diligent and well organised, keeping things on track despite a very dynamic real estate market, including rapidly changing rules regarding Auctions, due to Covid. He took it all in his stride. He was at his best negotiating with the highest bidder, immediately after the auction. It was these well-honed skills where John really earned his commission.
" Northcote's best! "
Having met John when I purchased the same property through him in 2015, I knew that he would be the right person for the job when the time came to sell. John handled the whole sale process seamlessly and professionally, and achieved a fantastic outcome for us during an uncertain market. Well done and thank you again, John!
" The Bisi Agent with flair "
John's local market and tailored customer knowledge is impeccable. Being able to think outside the square puts him way ahead of his peers. In such uncertain real estate market times, John was able to weave his magic and was able to make our family house a place to call home also for the new owners. He always makes you feel welcome, keeps you informed throughout the whole process, and ensures that you are part of the Bisi family.
" Great Agent and Property Manager! "
John managed my property for a number of years and he always found good tenants for me. We chose him as our agent as a bit of research will show that over a number of years he has consistently delivered strong sales results. John also has a bit of flair in his campaigns, which sets him apart from the local competition. We were interstate for the whole sales process & John took care of everything. He delivered in very uncertain times, he is a hard worker and we would recommend The Bisi Agent to anyone selling in the northern suburbs.
" The best ever "
What can you say about John? I can say, that my opinion of Real Estate agents has gone up exponentially by working with John. If I ever need to sell another house, interstate, I’ll hope to clone and import him. We chose John based on very positive feedback from friends of ours who chose him to sell their home. We could not be happier. With John and his team, you can expect everyone involved to go above and beyond, great communication throughout the entire process and a great result (ours was exceptional, as he predicted). His results speak for themselves but you will also enjoy dealing with the Bisi Agent. Win win. John is a character like no other, so if you want to have a personable experience with an agent who thinks outside the box and makes the stressful experience of selling houses fun, be sure to make John your man. 100% would recommended.
" Tremendously satisfying experience "
I couldn't recommend John more highly. His knowledge of the inner north property market is second-to-none. His energy and passion are intoxicating.
" Knows his stuff! "
John is professional but approachable. He knows the market and knows how to sell a house. Got the result I wanted in a tricky market.
" Top Agent - I cannot recommend The Bisi Agent more... "
From the very start of me finding the right agent to sell my property, John definitely shone, his knowledge, his vision, his personality are all his best attributes. He was the only agent that knew exactly the target market that would be interested in the house and with his stylists and team, he achieved the look that best represented the house for the market, he saw potential in the use of space and he honed in on these. He was so hands-on and I can say hand on heart he looked after me (the seller) and the interested parties (the buyers). He has a great eye for detail and he helped me with getting all the things done to the house that needed doing to get it up to scratch. I was interstate throughout the whole process, so it was important to have such an awesome, trustworthy agent whom I knew had everything under control and I could leave in his capable hands. The online auction was great and John and the auctioneer managed to make it fun and in some ways less stressful, and needless to say I was very happy with the price I got on my property. I cannot recommend John and his team highly enough.
" Seamless experience "
John is personable and professional, providing honest feedback and that is straight to the point. John did a terrific job in a difficult market and all parties were happy with the result. Thanks John!
" The Bisi Agent "
I first called John three and a half years ago as his office was across the road from my property. I would touch base every six months and understand the rental and sales market around Northcote and surrounding suburbs. John took my calls and would fill me in on recent sales and rentals in the area. My tenant vacated in June 2020 and I ummed and arghed on selling on many occasions. I put my trust in John and the team to go to market just as COVID was in play. John has a great understanding of the market and achieved an outstanding result for one of my properties in Northcote. This was during the peak of COVID, the restrictions were not obstacle and we achieved a sale on my property before auction. If you enjoy a laugh and some straight shooting banter, I cannot recommend John and the team at Bisi Agents highly enough. A great team to deal with ensured a great result was achieved. Very happy with the process and dealings all in all.
" John Bisignano - 5 Star Agent "
We engaged John and the team to sell our property based on the recommendation of a friend and we couldn't have been happier with our decision. John was great a keeping us informed of what was happening throughout the process. He helped us get the property ready for sale and has a great eye for detail; he really knows what buyers expect and how to emphasise the positives of the property. John was committed to getting the best outcome for us through a tricky campaign between the two Melbourne COVID lockdowns. He really went above and beyond.
" Spectacular! "
John's enthusiasm, attention to detail, personal touches and absolute dedication make him not just another real estate agent. We've sold with him twice now and recommended him to friends - achieving excellent results every time. Couldn't recommend him enough!
" Fantastic selling agent! "
John helped us transform and sell our property during a very challenging time with social distancing measures in place. John used his extensive knowledge of Melbourne's inner-north market to advise us on updates to make to optimize the value of our apartment. He coordinated the staging of the property and creation of gorgeous marketing assets. He helped us manage the entire sale process remotely. The final sale price exceeded our expectations and settlement was quick. We are very happy and would recommend John to anyone selling in the Northcote/Thornbury area.
" Couldn't be happier "
John managed the leasing of my property so when it came time to sell it was a no brainer to use him. I live interstate, and was 100% comfortable that John went above and beyond to get the property sold and at a great price. His communication throughout the process was great and he is still managing the body corporate issues during the settlement time. Thank you John!
" Agile, knowledgeable and clear agent, a super fun process and a fantastic result "
We diligently interviewed four agents before going with exactly none of them and calling John -- best decision we could have made! From the first interaction, John's relaxed and engaging personal style made it clear that we had found the person we wanted to work with. He knew exactly the type of buyers we would be pitching to, and he pushed us to polish the property up to speak to that exact group. John connected us with fantastic stylists, who worked within our budget and helped us bring some flair to our home, without sanitising it or taking away what we love about it. John's advice was clear and generously given, and his navigation through the changing lockdown restrictions (and the decisions we needed to make about how to sell) was faultless. He didn't shy away from making changes to the plan which would ultimately benefit the sale, even when they involved much more work for him. He involved us in all of the decisions, explaining his thought processes, and genuinely considered and adapted to the needs of our small family in all of the planning. I think we told him our child's daycare schedule once, and suddenly all of the open inspections had changed to suit our timing and make the process as smooth as possible. John and the team's follow up, communication and aftercare are fantastic. You genuinely feel like an important part of their lives and work while you're working together. I was also really impressed with John's insistence on transparency and integrity, and the way the treated potential buyers. John obviously lives and breathes his work, and the real estate industry is much better for it. Would not hesitate to recommend to my best friend or to my grandma -- thanks John!
" Wonderful agent "
Trying to sell a property is stressful at the best of times and selling during Covid19 and in a lockdown period added an additional level of stress. John worked tirelessly during this time and kept us continually updated. I credit his tenacity and work ethic in selling our property during such challenging times.
" Amazing experience with John Bisi! "
When we met John, everything in the world was great. No Covid-19, no social distancing. However, during the period of our tenants moving out, everything changed, the world changed. We initially second guessed selling, but after talking with John and knowing his expertise, we felt we were still in a strong position. John evolved with the ever-changing market, he offered solutions that put us in the very best position to secure a successful sale. And during this uncertain time, when the market was under immense stress, John went above and beyond as an agent (and we sold our property!). We would list another property with the Bisi Agent in a heartbeat. Thanks John! You are awesome at what you do!
" Northcote’s #1 for good reason "
John is honest, straightforward and clearly communicates. In an uncertain market I knew I was in good hands from the minute I engaged him. He guided me and made reasonable recommendations based of extensive experience to assist me with sales decisions. I recommend John without hesitation and would certainly use his services in any future transaction
" Exceptional agent, goes above and beyond "
Have only the best things to say about John and the service at Bisi Agent. The right choice for anyone who wants a passionate and dedicated agent who is not afraid to tell it how it is and will go the extra mile. Truly outstanding service with a personal touch, and delivers results.
" I have no hesitation on recommending John! "
I’ve been a client of John for over 10 plus years, John has helped me with many firsts when it comes to the world of property. I bought my first house from John, he was my first rental agent and I also sold my first house with him. John and his team has always made me feel like a top priority, he is enthusiastic, professional and knowledgeable and as a result, he achieved a great outcome for me in a very tough market in just few weeks. John was always available whenever I had any questions. I would have no hesitation on recommending John and his team to sell your next house.
" Great agent, fast pace and will sell your property in good price. "
John is very lovely. He will try all the possible way to sell you place in good price and fastest way. And his team always very helpful too.
" Goes the extra mile "
John knows the market and knows how to fully optimise the sales campaign in reaching outstanding results. Not only did John just sell my home he used his own interior design touches to present the home in a beautiful way. I almost changed my mind about going to market once I saw how fantastic it looked styled. Lucky I did go to market as the sale price exceeded my expectations.
" Exceptional down to every detail "
John is a local of the area he looks after and therefore knows Thornbury like the back of his hand. He is a key community player and holds great relationships with all sorts of different people in our suburb. He is likeable, honest and good fun. We have known John for years and trust his ability to understand what makes a property not only sell but shine. We rented our flat through his agency and secured tenants in days. When we were ready to sell there was no other choice but John. His eye for detail and connections in the styling industry set our flat a bar above the rest. We were overseas when our flat went on the market so we truly did leave every aspect of the selling and marketing campaign to John. He didn't disappoint and we received a result far better than our expectations. We already recommend John to anyone thinking of renting or selling their property. The industry has changed and John is one of the few people in Melbourne that has a modern and fresh real estate approach. Traditional agencies that haven't adapted for the last 20 years will suffer as a result of John being in the market.
" The perfect real estate agent "
John’s professionalism yet personable nature, is the perfect blend. He was a joy to work with and made the entire experience of selling our house seem effortless.
" Excellent agent, great outcome! "
I bought my property from John several years ago, he managed the rental of it through that period in a very professional manner and he managed the recent sale of the same property. The campaign was run professionally, John reported consistently on the level of interest and potential buyers. His advice on reserve and approach to the auction was spot on and the price achieved the upper level of expectations.
" Attention to detail "
John's attention to detail and dedication were outstanding. He ensured we were cared for and consulted with frequently in what can be a stressful time. His experience with the area, with the needs of buyers and sellers and personable, fun approach make him an excellent choice. On auction day, you can rely on him to take control and be the ultimate professional. We were so pleased with the result through John.
" Great Outcome "
John Bisignano made the sale of my property painless. John and his team were easy to deal with, helping me understand the sale process. They achieved a really great outcome, which was amazing in this slow market. I was very happy with both John and his team in the professional manner in which they worked, the quick sale and the awesome result, thanks!
" Look No Further, Best Agent Going Around! "
John's knowledge in real estate made it very easy. John was there to assist all the way from the start, right up until the end and beyond. Great communication, kept me up to date throughout the process. Will definitely use John again for next sale or purchase.
" Amazing hard working agent "
John is a hard working agent with a heart of gold... A delightful experience selling our property with him and I would recommend him to anyone.
" First Rate, Tailored, Honest & Energetic "
After crossing paths with John a number of years ago, John firstly managed the rental of my property for 2 years. I never had any problems with either of my tenants, John or his team. John had my confidence early - straight talking, honest, managing all of my outgoings and addressing any repairs and maintenance items quickly with a great network of local tradespeople. Knowing that John was keeping an eye on the property ensured a stress-free rental experience. When it came time to sell, I knew John would have it under control. His entire campaign was flawless, the communication with myself, my lawyer, the tenant & interested parties was all first rate. The effort that went into the countless 1%ers make such a difference that help make your property standout. The Bisi team's hard work was well worth it securing a great result for all. I happily provide John and the Bisi team my full endorsement for both rental and your selling needs.
" Hard worker, easy to deal with "
John is a great guy to work with, he was constantly opening up and making time to let potential buyers come through. It was my first time selling and he helped me along the way, and got a great price at the end which I was extremely happy with. I'd recommend John to anyone looking at selling, with his great experience and hard working mentality, anything is possible with The Bisi Agent!
" Knows his trade "
John was easy to work with (and fun!). He gave advice when needed and tried to keep me informed throughout the process. He is realistic and cares about what he does. I would definitely choose John as my agent for any of my future sales.
" 5 stars for John Bisignano "
I had the task of selling a unit in Reservoir so I interviewed the ‘top three’ agents in the area. But then a business associate suggested that I should talk to John Bisignano as well. I am so glad I did. At first I was worried because John wasn’t a ‘local’ agent... he was from Northcote, not Reservoir. But after talking to John and then going to a couple of his auctions to see him and his auctioneer in action, I knew he was the best choice. John was totally professional. He kept me informed about the progress every week and his attention to detail was amazing. John thinks differently. The auction was on Sunday morning. It was lively and uptone. And most important of all... there were a number of buyers trying to buy the property so the result was better than we hoped. I recommend John Bisignano to anyone wanting to sell (or buy) a property in the Northern suburbs.
" Best agent we have ever met!! Professional, caring and will get the job done!! "
Thank you so much John for all the hard work and dedication that you put in to selling our property! When we had lost hope, you came in and gave us such encouragement, we are so thankful that we trusted you to help us sell our property and will forever be grateful! Keep doing what you are doing, there is no one else like you! We highly recommend John, he is not just a great agent he is an amazing, kind, funny, creative and caring person! If you are hoping to sell and not sure who to go with, go with John!
" Beyond our expectations! "
John went above and beyond to prepare our property for sale. He was available at all times to discuss and provide suggestions and opinions. His professionalism and dedication was shown throughout the entire process of selling our property from start to finish. We highly recommend John and the team at The Bisi Agent.
" Professional, enthusiastic with excellent results "
From the moment I contacted John to sell my home, he worked exceptionally hard to get the property prepared for sale, provide thoughtful and thorough advice and marketed my house with professionalism and enthusiasm. We were rewarded with an auction that encouraged all interested parties to participate and an outcome that exceeded expectations. John is fantastic!
" In a class of their own! "
Having dealt with real estate agencies over 40 years, we found John and his team at The Bisi Agent to be in a class of their own. They are professional and passionate about their work, they have in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the housing market, and above all, they get quick results!
" A fantastic agent who goes above and beyond "
We sold our place through John and had a great experience. As first time sellers, John helped us out at every step. He has a great eye for design and we felt that by hiring John, we received a real estate agent and designer all in one! With a small child, open houses could be difficult at times, but John went out of his way to accommodate us and minimise disruption to our lives. We strongly recommend John for the sale of your property.
" World's Best Agent, Surely! "
Amazing!! From the second I met John and throughout the entire sale process, he was so different to other agents I've dealt with over the years. I've bought and sold many properties and I couldn't even tell you the name of any of them, but John I will always remember. His charisma, professionalism, efficiency and communication all exceeded my expectations. His communication with potential buyers was unlike anything I'd experienced before. John sold our property for well above our market expectations in an extremely difficult climate, gaining a "record price" for a 1 bedroom apartment in our building complex. His eye for detail is first class, and contacts with property stylists who did a fantastic job styling the property to ensure the property was showcased far better than other apartments in the same complex. John organised a painter, down lights to be installed, the electricity to be connected, all going above and beyond what you'd normally expect. If I was ever to sell another property, there is no one I would ever get to sell it other than John. It was without doubt the best experience I've ever had with a Real Estate Agent and I highly recommend John and the team at The Bisi Agent.
" Choosing John was the best decision we made! "
John is a true professional. He has a very positive and likable personality. John has exceptional communication skills too. He kept us well-informed about how many people attended the open days and he gave us a realistic assessment of the number of people showing genuine interest in buying the property. This transparency was very helpful so that come auction day, we had a sense whether the house would sell and the realistic price range we could expect. We were not disappointed! From the outset, John's knowledge of the market and his guidance was impressive. We think that the best recommendation we can give is that, should we ever need to sell another house, we would not hesitate to contact John Bisignano!
" Highly recommended! "
John has certainly impressed me with his ability, his determination, his creativeness and drive for success. Absolute pleasure dealing with him and having him on my side. Given the current climate Real Estate is in i.e. Covid 19 restrictions. John handled himself exceptionally. Highly recommend him for any future Real Estate sales and as a property manager.
" Perfection "
John is hands down the best because he is a perfect storm of amazing qualities. First of all he works really hard. He's across every minute detail. Then there is the charm. He can engage the buyers, the sellers, the sparky, the mother in law, whoever he is interacting with he's got them onside. Years and years and years of experience, he is incredibly good at what he does. I also found him to be a great listener, he really responded to my needs and worries while I was selling at a tricky time. He has integrity and kindness, intuition and style. On auction day he predicted with 100% accuracy who would seriously bid. I got a tremendous result with him when I sold my flat in Northcote and it was such a fun, easy, stress free process. I tell everyone I can about him, now I am telling you. Choose The Bisi Agent!!!
" Always a step above "
John has been supporting my property for a number of years, both as a rental and then for the sale. His advice is always spot on, always considering exactly what's best for me (as an owner/investor) and for the property itself. His passion for what his work is clear, and even in the current CoVid environment he managed the sale process, the auction and our working relationship with energy and professionalism. Thanks John! I look forward to working with you into the future.
" The Bisi Agent exceeded our expectations! "
Working with The Bisi Agent to sell our apartment was a great experience. They were recommended to us, and we highly recommend them to you. John is enthusiastic and hard working. Combined with his attention to detail, it’s no wonder he helped us achieve a sensational result. The Bisi Agent has the expertise, database and market presence of a big agency, yet the personal touch of a small business that knows it’s local area. This turned what could have been a stressful experience into a really exciting time for us. Thanks again John!
" Stuck to his guns. Great result. "
Looking for someone who will stand out from the crowd? John is your guy. Trust in his 20 year plus experience. Even in these uncertain times, John's diligence came through for us. The results were one of the highest achieved in the block. Trust in the process! Trust in John.
