About Property Needs

The focus of PropertyNeeds is to provide clients with the right advice and services to make informed decisions surrounding what is often their biggest asset.

With over 16 years of experience across residential and commercial property as an agent, business owner, investor, vendor and buyer I intimately understand the processes of buying and selling real estate, and the pitfalls, mistakes and misguided advice.

I’ll communicate a plan — keeping all parties informed using everyday language — put it into action and ensure your outcome is rewarding and stress free

As a Vendor Advocate, I’ll assist in engaging the ‘right’ agent and work alongside them, representing you for the best possible outcome. I’ll also ensure the file is compliant with all current legislation in regards to pricing, comparable sales and advertising of the property.

As a Buyers Agent I’ll be able to assist you in bidding at auction or negotiating a successful sale with terms that are ideal for you.

The real estate landscape has never been more cluttered and confusing. Having PropertyNeeds in your corner gives you the advantage to get what you need, when you need it, without the need for the stress often involved.

Your property needs are my business.

About Mark Engwerda

I’m passionate about great real estate results and de-mystifying the process of selling and buying property.

I have owned two real estate companies, worked with multi-office networks, consulted to overseas buyers and have helped my clients achieve exceptional real estate outcomes for over 16 years in both the residential and commercial sectors.

Outside of property I enjoy regular golf as a member of The National Golf Club at Cape Schanck. I’m a member of Rotary International. I enjoy travelling. Sometimes you can find me trying to catch a wave on the Surf Coast on my stand up paddleboard. I believe we live in the best country in the world. I love the coastline, the inland rivers, and the sport and culture our great city of Melbourne offers.

I believe life is about change and growth and I believe in happy endings.


“Mark from PropertyNeeds went straight to work when I found my dream property. I was excited and anxious all at the same time. Mark took on the negotiations for me and I bought the property for $30,000 less than I was prepared to pay and on settlement terms that were ideal. The experienced negotiating skills Mark displayed payed for his service many times over.”

“We knew our home was unique and may take a while to sell but Mark let us know what was happening right throughout the sale. He didn't rush things but kept all conversations real. His ability to mentor and coach the agent ensured the result exceeded our expectations.”

— Eddie and Chris Hope

“Mark from PropertyNeeds kept a cool head when the agent said “that’s their best offer” when selling our commercial investments. I truly believe his experience and ability to give an experienced commercial agent dialogue to go back to the buyer with was the only reason we achieved a contract price $100,000 higher than their 'best offer'”

— John Barber

“One home in the family for over 40 years and 6 owners. “Good luck” I said to Mark, not only did he keep us all informed, he took all the emotion of the sales process away from us and achieved an excellent sales result. I have no hesitation in recommending his services.”
