Paul Blanco has over 18 years experience in the Property industry, where he has spent a considerable amount of his career with large valuation firms, gaining vital experience in various asset classes. This includes specialising in valuing commercial, industrial and residential properties.
Paul then spent a short time in project sales, where he excelled in managing and selling off plan developments in Melbourne. It wasn’t long before he made the move back to his true calling of conducting valuation work, as well as helping various local, interstate and overseas purchasers through property advisory for pre-purchase purposes.
His vast and varied experience has added a new dimension to Paul’s service abilities, allowing him to assess all angles of rapidly changing markets, and provide accurate valuations and tailored property advice to his clients.

I am very satisfied with the valuation service that Paul had done for me. We initially did some research and obtained various quotes. We finally chose Paul as our valuer to do the valuation report. He arrived at our property on time, he is a very kind and professional man, he researched our property well and surrounding comparable sales evidence to my property in order to get a true indication of our property’s value based on the current market. Thank you for your patient and professional service, we are looking forward to our next engagement.
Outstanding group to work with. Quick, easy to work with, great price and produced a comprehensive report quite fast, so we could get an unbiased pre-sale advice before putting our property on the market. Thanks again, we will be sure to use you again!
Paul is extremely professional and straight to the point. He helped me get a fair price for a house I recently purchased. His report is straight forward and focuses on the houses value using specific comparable sales evidence in the neighbourhood which put me in a good position to negotiate. Thank you Paul!
As my family and I are from interstate, we had been looking for an investment property in Albert Park for quite some time and wanted an independent valuer to provide us with an unbiased assessment of value without any pre-conceived influences from sales agents. Paul provided a quality detailed report including past sales history, seven comparable sales and established a value range that would be acceptable to bid at auction. When I flew into Melbourne with my family and I was at the auction, it gave me complete confidence what my maximum price would be. Needless to say we bought the property within the value range following Paul’s recommendations and were extremely happy with the purchase. We recommend Paul to anyone wanting to uncover the true value of a property and will definitely be happy to get in touch with him in the future.
Paul from Blanco Property Group performed our valuation last minute while he was very busy. The property we were looking to purchase had a lot of unique features and elements that Paul was able to consider and assess. His report was very thorough, professional, and in my opinion, accurate. It helped my wife and I to decide on how we should proceed with our home purchase with confidence. Paul was keen to discuss any questions and concerns we had leading up to the auction. He also followed up on how the auction unfolded. We were very happy that we snapped up the property slightly below market value. We really appreciate all his hard work and we highly recommend to anyone that needs reassurance on market value before putting up your hand at auction.
As a general manager of a national retail company, we deal with many valuation reports used to assess market reviews. Paul’s work commitment to uncover a fair market rate has given us confidence time and time again when negotiating with landlords or asset managers. He is a proven professional and I do not hesitate recommending him for rental assessments.
Paul is one of the top prestige valuers in Adelaide. Every time I have a client in need of a valuation report, I refer Paul the work without hesitation. His attention to detail is outstanding and I know he takes the time discuss any concerns with the client.
Excellent! High quality valuation, excellent customer service and an incredibly fast turn-around time. Very professional. I will be using his services again.
I needed a valuation for settling an estate with my ex-partner. Paul was very professional, punctual and helpful with the process. I received the report in a timely manner. I would certainly recommend and use Paul’s services in the future.
As returning clients of Paul’s, we believe that ‘Actions speak louder than words’ is the best and most precise summary we could use to describe Paul’s professionalism. Why? Because we have previously asked Paul to do two property valuations for us, and both the quality of his work and manner are nothing short of exceptional.
We engaged Paul to provide a current valuation of our holiday home as well as a retrospective valuation for capital gains purposes. Dealing with Paul was a pleasure and we were very impressed with his professional and friendly manners. Paul is obviously very experienced and his valuation turned out to be very accurate. We would definitely recommend him to anyone and will engage him again next time we need a property valuation.
We found Paul’s services to be prompt, affordable, and very thorough. He attended our site on time and took in all aspects of our property and what it had to offer. He noted all relevant features of our property and provided an extremely detailed report in a timely manner. We were very pleased with the valuation outcome and would highly recommend his services.
I was very happy with the quick service provided by Blanco Property Group and the detailed property report. Paul has great knowledge and real estate experience with realistic comparisons taking into account all factors during our assessment. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone seeking a professional property valuation.
