Insights with a difference 

Our Word

Our very first blog. There are so many highly educated professionals in the area of real estate, who have been in the industry a lot longer than me and I very much doubt that I could write anything about property that you haven’t heard or read before, but I will try to give you something interesting at least! You also may have noticed that Robin Hood Real Estate is not about being the same, probably the opposite in fact -  we are about being the difference.

Why Robin Hood?

We believe Robin Hood is symbolic of our philosophy because we take from the greedy (the real estate agency - as that's a common perception) and give to the needy. Melanie Carmody, our Founder, could have put her own name up in lights and called the company Carmody Realty or something similar, but that is not her style.


Testimonial #1

I first met Melanie 13 years ago. My son has Cerebral Palsy and she was his case manager for disability support. We had just moved to Tumby Bay from Alice Springs. Melanie asked us if there was anything she could do for Jack. I mentioned that he used to really enjoy Riding For The Disabled (RDA) in Alice Springs, but it isn't available in Port Lincoln. Nothing is too much trouble for Melanie so she called a meeting to see if there was anyone interested in establishing our own RDA. The response was amazing. The centre was established and is still going strong all these years later.

Later when Melanie changed careers and got into real estate I enlisted her to sell my home. It was in a very small country township but she managed to sell it much faster than expected and achieved a higher price than I could have ever hoped for.

Melanie stands by her word and will always put her clients first. Her honest and professional approach is outstanding.


Testimonial #2

We had always wanted to buy an investment property but banks kept saying No. Melanie spent some time with us and she made it happen. She could see what we wanted to achieve and genuinely wanted us to reach our goal.

We have had an investment property now for several years and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without Melanie’s knowledge and assistance.
