Known for honesty, integrity, professionalism and a wicked sense of humour, Chris Bender is as local as Seymour gets, with family connections as far back as three generations!
Chris is an active community member – involved in everything from the football, cricket and netball fixture, to lawn bowls, the Seymour Arts Society and local Rotary.
Together with his wife Sue, Chris decided the region offered an idyllic lifestyle and the perfect place to raise two sons and a daughter – offering an easy commute to the city and the perfect place to live, work and play.
Chris has a diverse background… having worked prior to his real estate days as a sign-writer and for ten years owning a video store (in the old days, way before Netflix existed!)
With a hard-won reputation, Chris maintains he enjoys the industry as much today as he did when the real estate sector lured him to join Seymour First National in 1998.
The Bender philosophy has always been that ‘our success is only relative to the happiness of our clients’ – with many repeat sellers, buyers, landlords and a long list of clients becoming life-long friends along the way.
Chris is proud of his Agency’s success and maintains his objective is not to be the biggest realtor in town, but to strive always, to achieve optimal results for every client.
Fantastic customer service and great results. We purchased and sold several house’s through Chris over the last few years. Bender and Co also managed our rental properties. I could not recommend Chris and his team enough. They provide excellent service, prompt and professional communication and honest and constructive feedback. Each of our houses were sold quickly and for prices we were very happy with. I would definitely recommend Chris and his team. They make the process easy and stress free. They are extremely approachable and are always available to provide assistance.
Hard working and professionalCouldn’t have asked for a better agent to sell my property. Chris is a genuine professional who went above and beyond to keep me up to date with the whole process.
Easy to deal with,Very professional, spot on with valuation and what the property sold for, highly recommended.
Selling or buying propertyI always found Chris to be courteous, professional in his approach to marketing, and on-going contacts he had throughout the community and extensive knowledge of the area.
Chris Bender has sold three properties on my behalf over the last 10 years. He is the consummate professional. Throughout the sales process, Chris is in constant communication, providing professional, honest service - always with a smile, a joke, and a can-do attitude! This approach is a testament to the Bender name’s connection with real estate in Seymour since 1998. I cannot thank Chris and his team enough for the care and professionalism they consistently show.
A pleasure to deal with.I have used Bender and Co on numerous occasions and have always found Chris and the team to be well informed and pleasant to deal with. Chris has achieved great results for me and is always in tune with the market.
