About Us

Stability, they say, is a pillar to any company’s success. It’s also one of Valentines’ hallmarks. Established in 1945, Valentines is Melbourne’s leading licensed business and estate agent specialising in the sale of business and commercial properties.

Valentines’ experienced and committed 25-member sales team is also the largest team of business brokers in Victoria. Most Valentines agents have a history of business ownership and accreditation from the Real Estate Institute of Victoria. Each staff member is also fluent in at least one language other than English.

While Valentines has a reputation for its stronghold in the hospitality industry, the company’s excellent track record features an extensive array of other types of profitable businesses. As a real estate agent, Valentines also handles the sale of any freehold, land and commercial properties with expertise that makes these complex processes simple and efficient.

Clients who have dealt with us always come back to us, says Managing Director Amin Badawi.
With thousands of profitable businesses on its books, Valentines has a high customer return rate and many satisfied clients referring others to the company. The company's professionalism makes its successes, and has led them to now transact millions of dollars each year in business sales.

Our office has sold almost every food business in Melbourne at least once, says Amin.
Amin's first ever contact with Valentines came in the late '70s, when he approached the company about buying a business of his own. Since Amin started at the business, Valentines has grown from a single lone salesperson to now boasting a strong team of 25 sales-people.
