About us

Bret Ward Real Estate Bret Ward Real Estate was founded by Bret Ward in 2004 and is one of the leading estate agencies in the local area with continuous growth in business. We have a wide range of listings priced from $90,000 up to $2.5 million and we have achieved the highest residential property price for our vendors over the years. 

Paynesville is a thriving coastal town on the Gippsland Lakes just 300kms East of Melbourne, it is known as a mecca for safe boating, fishing and a mild climate. Much of the recent growth has stemmed from the development of a network of canals and prestigious waterfront homes, which has created 2 artificial Islands in the middle of town. The continued growth is well served by a range of local shops, waterfront cafe's, restaurants, bars, clubs, new community centre, doctors, dentists, 2 supermarkets and a community Bendigo Bank.

Raymond Island is Just a short passenger ferry ride across from Paynesville where you will find an abundance of bird life, Koalas and Kangaroos. There is also great fishing, a terrific boat ramp, jetty berths and very reasonably priced homes. With a small population of full time residents, Raymond Island has also seen steady growth in the past couple of years in the sales of holiday homes and investment properties.
