Patrick Leo
Ten Years Serving You!

The success of our clients is our greatest achievement.

"My grandfather’s devotion to family, his team and his faith have been woven into my upbringing” says Managing Director, James Nihill. "While I never met him, his legendary strength of character has always been impressed upon me by my family".

Patrick Leo Nihill started life on a farm in Creek View, Runnymede, Victoria. He was just 23 when he enlisted and was assigned to the 38th Battalion, serving in France between 1916-1918. 

Patrick didn’t share stories or experiences from the war, but accounts from his mates in the trenches, told of heroic efforts and selflessness. During this time his bravery was recognised, and he was awarded several medals including: Distinguished Conduct Medal, Military Medal, British War Medal and the Victory Medal.

Our team conducts ourselves in business by these guiding principles. Like Patrick did for his county, we are ready to serve you.

  • I relied heavily on these guys to give me sound advice and the confidence to go ahead. I’ve built 3 properties through them now and I can’t speak highly enough of the team there. I’ve never felt like I’m just a number to them and that's important to me.

  • I went to Patrick Leo because my best friend went there and he’s done quite well out of it. He presented a very compelling case, and the team found a property that was suitable for me and ticked all the boxes. I have now purchased my first investment property.

  • The team at Patrick Leo were with us every step of the way. They took the time to fully understand our situation as well as personal and life goals and ensured we secured the best deal by negotiating on our behalf. Additionally, they paid meticulous attention to important details and ultimately secured us a great tenant. The aftermarket support has also been exceptional.

  • The Patrick Leo staff were fantastic, friendly and very helpful. Katie was awesome, her professionalism and assistance was great throughout my application process. It was that level of care that made my move in relatively stress free.

  • Katie & Danielle were incredible! They took all the stress out of moving during a difficult time and were easily able to contact when we had any concerns. Can't recommend enough thanks girls!

  • The team have been nothing but supportive of ourselves (my family) and helped out from applying for the property to getting approved and everything else in between. Fantastic on communication always kept in the loop about everything we need to know about. We couldn’t be more appreciative and happy and recommend such an amazing, kind, thoughtful Realestate agency.

  • I feel very fortunate to have met James & his team in 2017. I am still in shock how my small fortune grew to become what it is now. Financial stability is very important to me and I feel Patrick Leo team’s property investment strategy has been amazingly successful in proving how effective it is regardless of where I started or what has been going on in the world around me! Thanks James & team.
