Libby Baird

Residential Sales

After making an industry leap from hospitality to Real Estate in 2013 my passion for providing the best service possible has grown from strength to strength. Meeting new people and helping them to achieve their goals is really what puts a smile on my face.

I pride myself in my work ethic, negotiation skills and consistent communication, ensuring that sellers and buyers are kept totally in the loop at every stage of the process and feel supported and safe in what can be quite a stressful time… (It should be fun, too!)

It is an honour to be a part of the McDonald Real Estate family and the support it provides – the culture of the company is a real pleasure to be immersed in.
I look forward to being there for my clients and am excited to be able to be a part of your experience!



personal profile / listings

"We met Libby some months ago by visiting open homes and by exclusive property viewing appointments.
We were immediately struck and impressed by Libbys’ great personality and enthusiasm, and as our contact with her developed found her to be a very conscientious and honest person.
Libby was eventually involved in the purchase of our new home, and the sale of our existing home. She worked very hard to get us the right buyer at the right sale price for us, which she did.
We are very happy with the service Libby provided, even when working with some difficult buyers and testing situations.
We have no hesitation in recommending Libby to any prospective employer or vendor."

"It was a pleasure working with Libby on the recent sale of our home. Libby went the extra mile to ensure that we fully understood the process. She did an excellent job with the marketing, viewings and negotiation process. In our view communication is key and Libby’s communication is outstanding. We were so well informed during the whole process.
I would strongly recommend Libby to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home."

"Our recent experience in purchasing a property we were fortunate to meet Libby on the open home day.
After deciding to purchase the property we continued to negotiate with Libby.
If we had any questions or queries Libby was always there ready and willing to help. We honestly couldn't ask for a more helpful, friendly person to deal with. We highly recommend dealing with Libby with any Real Estate business."

"My partner and I were first home buyers so this process was very new to us and was a little bit daunting.
Libby has been amazing, answering all our questions, keeping us informed at every step of the way and making sure we were happy and also that we understood everything.
Although she technically is working for the vendor we feel like she has gone above and beyond for us and has made this very exciting time completely stress free.
It was refreshing to meet an agent who was so genuine and didn’t just see us as another sale.
Libby is so enthusiastic and is always so happy it was a pleasure working with her. Thank you so much Libby for helping us in to our first family home!"

"My family recently purchased a home in Egmont Village.
It was listed with McDonald Real Estate. We loved it on the listing and made the effort to be at the open home early.
Upon arrival we were greeted by the super awesome always happy real estate agent otherwise known as Libby.
She was very warm and welcoming and my kids loved her straight away. My eldest (girl of 3) still asks about her now.
We loved the house and made an offer soon after the first open home and from then on Libby was always happy to help and made any extra effort she could to go out of her way to accommodate us.
I would recommend to anyone to use Libby as their agent, either to buy a house or to sell, and if ever the time comes (I highly doubt it) that we come to sell our house, Libby will be getting the call."

"I would like to say you have been really helpful and knowledgeable when selling our house; you went that extra mile for us which secured a sale. Always happy to help and very quick at answering questions. We personally probably choose the wrong time to sell as we were very busy with the new baby but you helped to take the stress out of the whole situation and make it easy. The end result meant a new family gets a new house they love and we get to move onto our dream property, so really you have helped make our dreams come true."

"We were really happy with the service we received from Libby while buying a new home. She was friendly and approachable and always made herself available to us for anything we needed.
We would happily recommend Libby to anybody looking to buy or sell!"
