Natalie Gallenti Brekalo

Natalie joined the Pennisi team in 2016 with considerable local knowledge, having spent 10 years as a journalist reporting for community newspapers in Brimbank, Moonee Valley, Melton and Moorabool.

The moment Natalie arrived at Pennisi, she was surprised by how welcoming and friendly the staff were; from Receptionists and Property Managers, to Sales Agents and Leaders... Work was everyone's number one priority, but the tight-knit community provided a supportive environment for Natalie to familiarise herself with her new industry.

A Bachelor of Media and Communications set a solid foundation for Natalie's career in real estate, which began as a Home Finder, quickly progressing to Sales Agent where she now works alongside our Principal, Andrew Pennisi.

For Natalie, the best part of real estate is meeting new people and working towards a common goal, for and with her clients. It's the sense of achievement when a sale is completed and seeing how happy people are with an outstanding result that makes working in real estate so much more than just a job.

Natalie lives in Sunshine with her husband and three children, Charlotte, Ruby and Marcus. In between school drop-offs, extracurricular activities, trips to the park, bike rides and nightly homework, Natalie loves to cook, read and watch the Bombers play on the weekend.

Mrs & Mr Blaxill, Gowanbrae

Andrew and Natalie were very professional, supportive and helpful. Without swamping us with unnecessary communications they ensured that we were well informed and up to date. We found the process less stressful than anticipated, we think due to the calm and friendly attitude of the team. Our sale involved a few unusual circumstances and glitches which Andrew and Natalie handled extremely well and kept any pressure away from us. Negotiations were well done and we believe that the outcome was the best possible for us and the buyer. A big thanks to Andrew and Natalie for their efforts and we hope the buyer has many years of happiness in their new home.

Joshua Reeve, Essendon

Andrew and the team at Pennisi Real Estate were fantastic in helping us sell our apartment (Essendon/Owner-Occupier), despite the impact of the pandemic. Service and turnaround to go to market was second to none, with great market insights and a tailored approach. Greatly appreciate the assistance you all provided in achieving our desired selling price. Pricing was on par with what we budgeted/market average, noting that you have the added benefit of an exceptional negotiation team... Truly a seamless experience, delight to deal with and most definitely reaching out for future property advice and services. Thanks again, in particular; Andrew, Nat and Carly. 

Julie McCamish, Essendon North Seller

Very good knowledge of local area around our home (Essendon North). Home was on the market for some time. Sale was affected by Co-Vid restrictions. Pennisi never gave up and was always working hard to sell our house. Kudos on finally getting a buyer and completed sale!

Scott McCamish, Essendon North Seller

Nat and Andrew looked after our property throughout a difficult period with Covid and other things. We have now sold and are happy to be out of the market for a while. It was hard, but Nat and Andrew made it so much easier than it could have been.
