After growing up in Shepparton, Dionne's passion for Real Estate was the driving force behind her decision to move to Melbourne. “I commenced my career as a Sales Agent with a fantastic boutique inner city agency who dominated the residential warehouse market, an exciting and new style of real estate in Melbourne at the time”.
Having commenced her career in Real Estate in 1997, Dionne enjoys a thorough working knowledge of both residential sales and rental markets. Dionne added her full licence to her resume in 2008 and opened her office, Harcourts City Residential in 2009. After 7 years as Harcourts City Residential Dionne undertook a trading name change in early 2016 to Harcourts Melbourne City to freshen things up in line with the major Harcourts re-brand.
“The strength of Brand Harcourts offers, the administration, advertising & technology support along with the acclaimed Harcourts Training Academy help me attract and retain the industries best to form my awesome team”.
Often called upon by work and industry colleagues for advice and support, Dionne is considered an area expert. "A great deal of my business now comes not only from referrals from satisfied clients, but also from industry colleagues I've met throughout the years…… It's the greatest compliment as people from within the industry are often the most critical".
"I'm very proud of the reputation I've built over the years and now enjoy helping my team build a reputation they too can be proud of”.
“Whilst my roles within the industry have changed over the years, there's never a doubt that real estate is 'HOME' for me".
I am writing to let you know how thrilled my husband and I are with having Harcourts manage our property. I have had several rental properties with a number of real estate agents over the last 20 years and Harcourts has been the most efficient and obliging company we have dealt with.
Thank you for your services and employing people of such a high calibre.

I would like to express my appreciation for your excellent effort into selling my investment property on last Saturday! My husband and I are impressed with your high standard of professionalism and caring for clients!
Sophia – Melbourne - Vendor
I have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone wanting to sell their property. In addition I can’t overstate the brilliant performance of the auctioneer Dionne Wilson whose management of the auction was better than any that I have previously seen in ensuring that the best price was obtained.
Tony – Heritage Building – Melbourne - Vendor
It is hard to believe so much time has transpired since we purchased Tribeca and you have been a constant for us and the reason we moved over to Harcourts to manage and eventually sell the property.
The team have always been so professional and hard working in their efforts to negotiate on our behalf, either on the rental front or just recently with the sale. Harcourts is a breath of fresh air, from the front line team through to management and it has not been surprising to watch your rapid growth and success
Big thanks to you, Esme, Stuart, Jess and the rest of the team
Kate – Tribeca, East Melbourne - Landlord & Vendor
I just wanted to send you a quick message of thanks, for giving us an insight into your expertise and the manner in which you service your many clients via your active H1 Database. I gained many valuable tips that I intend to put into practice. Thanks again, I know you are a very busy person! Can I see the video you created this morning! How on earth do you find time for all this extra STUFF? Oh that’s right, I forgot, you work 24/7!!! It’s a credit to you.
Margo – Harcourts Business Owner
The day of the auction and the result achieved were well beyond my expectations and I know it came down to Bob's tireless preparation and Dionne's unique and effective Auctioneer-ing! Thanks again, I wouldn't hesitate to engage you again or recommend you to others.
Jen - Victoria Alberts, East Melbourne - Vendor

Thank you so much for your ‘thank you’ card regarding Lee Lin’s referral ! You have restored my faith in Harcourts agents doing great business !!!!! From a trainers point of view when you preach best practice day in and day out and struggle to see the results and wonder why……..then you come along and do a WOW …. Thank you thank you …On my window sill in my office I now have 5 cards that I have received in the last month and they are all from ‘great’ agents, yourself included. My window sill tells a very clear story.
Ailsa Dawson – Harcourts Academy Trainer
The service, communication and high level of professionalism we received from Claire throughout the inspections and sale process was by far the best we have experienced. Claire’s positive and helpful attitude assisted and guided us through the process, we’d have no hesitation in recommending Harcourts and Claire for any future sales and property management services.
Ian and Marita – Collins Street purchasers
“Dionne showed a can-do positive attitude which gave me full confidence she would effect the sale of my property very quickly. This is what she promised and it happened”…….“Dionne also showed great professionalism which is not common with other real estate agents, which made me feel very comfortable dealing with her. She also proved to be knowledgeable in the specialised market of serviced apartments, which other agents find very difficult to sell. I was previously with another agent for 12 months with not one single offer, as they did not have the knowledge to help the sale of my serviced apartment”.
Joseph – Past Vendor of 250 Elizabeth (Somerset on Elizabeth)
“Thank you so much for sorting out the problem yesterday – dealing with a flooding flat and mopping the floors for me afterwards really went beyond the call! ……… I’m thrilled that you found someone so quickly and also that were happy to pay me so much rent!

Marilyn – Collingwood Purchaser
“…I had met with 3 other real estate agents and you where head and shoulders above the others in terms of knowledge and relevant experience. …..The news was telling us every day that the market had slowed, interest rates were up and it all seemed doom and gloom. You on the other hand where very positive and happy to set the reserve at our mark. As soon as the auction began it was obvious we would finish well beyond that mark. The turn-out was fantastic on a cold Melbourne morning with rain threatening and more importantly we had 5 bidders through the event which shows great interest and a very successful marketing campaign. The result was brilliant. I would like to again thank you for the very positive experience and your professional approach, you definitely will be my first point of contact for any further property sales".
