Our Story

At Vanguarde we are about creating personalised service of the highest standards, our clients and customers alike deserve nothing less than our absolute attention.

Independently owned and operated by co-founders Tim Breckell and Travis Reeve Vanguarde Estate Agents is the Northern Sydney CBD's strongest sales, leasing and property management agency.

Small is the new BIG

Whilst smaller in size we are amongst the most developed in our real estate skill set and hold a great investment and commitment in personal pride and moral identity. We have a high level of focus on every client in our business, we are specialised in providing the very best service and outcomes on a one on one basis. Being small means we can be very directional and can rapidly implement and master new changes in industry technology, keeping Vanguarde Estate Agents as market leaders and our clients being availed to the very best marketing and CRM systems available.

Vanguarde Estate Agents strive to be the best. We are committed to delivering unprecedented levels of service to both property owners and customers. Our impeccable reputation and continued record of accomplishment is a direct result of our unshakeable commitment to the highest standards of customer service.

Since establishing Vanguarde Estate Agents in 2004, we have built strong community ties founded on trust. We have also built an even stronger reputation for being the market leaders in selling leasing and managing properties within the Sydney CBD precinct.

We set the standards in the CBD precinct for:

  • The market leader in volume of prestige residential sales.
  • The record for largest amount of sales per annum for 12 years running within the Northern CBD precinct. 
  • Over $1,200,000,000 worth of sales achieved by owners of Vanguarde Estate Agents Tim Breckell & Travis Reeve and Darren Smith. 
  • Over 1050 sales in the Sydney CBD. 
  • The market leader in property management. 
  • The highest rental returns averaged out throughout our portfolio 
  • The lowest vacancy rates and highest quality corporate tenants. 
  • A combined sales and management experience of over 90 years. 
  • Highly skilled staff who are professional and discrete, and who exercise the utmost integrity in advising clients and striving for maximum client return

Accolades that we are equally proud of which cannot be quantified are:

  • Recognition for being ethical operators, who do the right thing every time in every situation.
  • Independently owned real estate agency with a shop in both Observatory Tower in the Kent street Village and Stamford Residences within The Rocks.
  • Our close community ties built on solid foundations of trust with owners, building managers, tenants and local business operators.
  • Our large amount of referral business, over 80% of our business is by word of mouth referrals from our happy clientele.

Our constant flow of referral business is testament to our firm adherence to our core beliefs and evidence of customer satisfaction.

By providing the highest levels of customer service and standards of excellence, Vanguarde Estate Agents has quickly risen to become the dominant agency in the area.

‘Our local knowledge is your advantage’


Our firm has been involved over the years with various charities.


Vanguarde Estate Agents has proudly supported Chris O’Brien Lifehouse at RPA, the Nelune Foundation, the RSPCA, Darling House and the Borneo Orang-utan Survival Foundation.


Charity is an area close to our hearts and we have a special affinity with St Vincent’s Hospital.


In April 2013, Vanguarde Estate Agents donated $10,000 to St Vincent’s rehabilitation facility ‘Sacred Heart’.Our Managing Director Tim Breckell credits them for helping him to walk again after some very adverse affects from chemotherapy last August.


We hope our contribution helps Sacred Heart to continue providing essential services to patients in need and as a business we will focus on helping keep this amazing centre of healing strong.
