Eddie started his career in the late 1990's and while most agents found this market difficult, he excelled to be a top performer and took out the coveted First National's Rookie of the Year out of 500 offices Australia wide. In the same year he obtained the Gold Badge level for the Jenman Group and was in the top 5% of the real estate industry.

Eddie contributes his success to his passion for the industry and focusing on putting his clients first and maintaining the highest level of ethics when dealing with the general community.

"The secret for success, in my opinion, is to allow an hour a day for Personal Self Development in your chosen field.....The way I measure my success, is not by the amount of sales I make, but rather how much I exceeded my clients expectations!"

Most of Eddie's clients are through referrals and repeat business. He has built his company based on testimonials from happy clients rather then through the client's advertising money.

"I believe no vendor should pay any money to an agent unless their property has been sold. This is why I refuse to take advertising money from our vendors and only charge a fee if we sell the client's home".

My Sold Properties


32 Ardgower Court, Templestowe Lower

My wife Maureen and I could not be happier with the service Eddie Fakhri and his team provided when the time came to sell our Templestowe Lower home.

We anticipated that the process would be quite harrowing, but Eddie made it much easier than we could have expected. His professionalism, knowledge of the area, friendly nature, efficiency, and attention to detail were much appreciated by us, as was the fact that he kept us constantly informed about the sale process as it developed.

We have no hesitation in recommending Bill Schlink First National Real Estate to anyone seeking advice and embarking on the process of the sale or purchase of property.

21 McDonald Avenue, Templestowe April 2022

We cannot thank you enough for the professional and streamlined campaign completed for our property at 23 McDonald Ave Templestowe.
You and your team did an exceptional job on the sale of our land, with a signed contract within 5 weeks. The regular updates by SMS on every prospect & every detail associated with our property sale were so appreciated. 
Eddie, the communication through the Bill Schlink campaign was nothing short of exceptional. Your incredible attention to detail was on point and you did all possible to ensure we achieved the best price, with the best possible commercial terms for our sale.
This was our second sale with Bill Schlink First National. Will definitely look forward to working with you again in the future.
Happy to speak to any prospective clients and personally share this testimonial.
Kind regards,

Hi Eddie,


I would like to thank you and your team for selling my house.

The process was fast, efficient and very professional. I had a negative experience 2 years ago, but this one was very positive. The house was sold in 17 days exactly from the day it was put on the market with the price that I wanted and there were NO fine prints.


As a happy customer, I will certainly will recommend you to all my friends.


Thanks once again and all the best.

Dear Eddie & Team,

Thank you so much for handling the sale of my home so professionally and effortlessly.

As you know, I have been in the property for over 37 years and have a very strong emotional attachment to the place.  You understood that, and only showed through genuine, qualified buyers, three of which made written offers, with the highest offer well over my expectations and asking price.

You stayed in contact with me for over 15 years, from initially appraising my home to even after the sale of my home.  When you have continued to stay in contact, explaining step by step the process until settlement, which is now very close.

You also offered me a hassle free sale without any advertising costs, then delivered.

Thank you for assisting me to purchase my new home despite it not being listed by your Agency.  Very much appreciated.


Well done.

We couldn't be happier with Eddie and the team.

When we first rented out our property in Templestowe, they found a tenant within two days of inspecting the place.

The second time we rented the place out, after some minor renovations it was rented out a a higher rate within 5 days.

When we decided it was time to sell, we didn't bother speaking to other agents, as we met with Eddie and told him the price we wanted.

Working in a service industry I know how important communication is.

With Bill Schlink First National, communication is number one and they deliver on what they promise, every time.

I hope the new year brings you good health and happiness.
Thank you again,

Hi Eddie,

Just a quick note of thanks for the successful sale of my Townhouse in Donvale.

Please see testimonial below....

Your team at First National Real Estate Bill Schlink are competent and ethical but most importantly experts in negotiation. My property was sold within 2 weeks of listing with a minimum of fuss and absolutely no cost to me.

I will certainly have no hesitation to refer everyone I know to you and your team for all real estate needs in the future.

Thanks to you and your team again.

Kind regards

Dear Eddie,


Just a short note to say how pleased Bernice and l were with the way yourself, Ashley and Sarah handled the sale of our home. 

We had lived in the home for over 46 years and were quite unfamiliar with how the home selling business worked.  As it turned out, we couldn't have wished for a more friendly and professional team to handle the sale.  Any misgivings we might have had were quickly allayed as your team moved into action.  Communication was excellent, plenty of notice given for inspections and you were able to attract plenty of interest in the house.  It probably only took about two weeks from the start of the process to evaluating the offers received and best of all, the offer we finally accepted exceeded our expectations. 

Bernice made the comment more than once that the level of service and amount of time devoted to us made her feel like we must have been the only clients you had.  Obviously not, but such is the impact on us oldies when you make us feel like real people whose interests you had at heart.  We have no regrets at all about engaging your firm to handle our sale and firmly believe that no other agents could have achieved the same result for us.  We would have no hesitation in recommending your firm to anyone else looking to sell their home, or buy one for that matter. 

If honesty and integrity, friendliness and professionalism are important to prospective home buyers or sellers, they need to look no further than Bill Schlink First National.  We have no doubt they will not be disappointed.


Kind Regards,


John & Bernice

Dear Eddie,

We are writing this letter to express how pleased we are with the exceptional job you and Ashley Collins and the team at Bill Schlink First National Templestowe did for the sale of our home.

You sold our home within 3 days of listing the property which we thought was an amazing result.

The sale went smoothly and we couldn't be happier with the price achieved.

The entire team made sure our selling experience was as stress free as possible, you kept us updated and informed the whole way, the feedback was ongoing after each inspection.

We strongly recommend Eddie and the team at First National Templestowe who either wish to sell their property or wish to buy a home in the area, and would be happy for anyone to contact us directly as a personal reference.

You managed to remove all stresses associated with such a large transaction and all without placing any pressure to make decisions along the way.

We would have no hesitation in recommending your agency to anyone looking at selling their property and we would use your company again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much.

We wish to thank you most sincerely for selling our home quickly and without stress.  Selling our home after 50 years could have been a daunting prospect but for Eddie and Ashley's helpful and caring approach.

There was no pressure and as people of a "certain age" their consideration and guidance was very much appreciated.

We can highly recommend Eddie, Ashley and the team if selling your greatest asset "your Home."

Yours sincerely

Dear Eddie

RE: 5 Bullen Street, Doncaster East

I would like to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude for your excellent handling of the sale of our family home of many years in Doncaster East.

It was difficult to let go of this home, having been in the family for over two decades.  You quickly understood how important it was for us to feel like the property was valued appropriately for it's significant development potential.  You maintained your professional etiquette throughout the whole process and always made my mother feel like a valued client, through to the very end.

In an industry where integrity can be rare and is often the distinguishing feature that will elevate one agency over another, I am proud to say we were fortunate to have dealt with an agent with as much integrity as yourself.

Thank you for treating us and our property with the time and effort it deserved.  It will not be forgotten.

Kind regards,

daughter and mother, Diala and Dalal
