The Astute Buyers Advocate team visited Bentleigh over the weekend, to establish a good understanding of the area and the homes on the market.
It was a sunny day and the shopping street was bustling with families, cafe goers, men & women leaving the gym & of course, the piano man! He played on a rainbow decorated piano, underneath the 'bandstand' on Centre Road with a few onlookers listening and encouraging for more. The feeling of community was strong. We thought, what a lovely place to live!
