THE STORY OF INTEGRITY
 
 
Integrity Real Estate began as a dream held by Bill Verhagen to establish a
family-owned, family-run real estate company in the Yarra Valley and surrounds.
It was a dream built on the values of hard work, family virtue, and integrity.
 
 
Born and raised on the farm in Holland, Bill arrived in Australia
one of twelve children in 1960. Building his first house in Castella in 1976,
Bill worked in the building industry for 25 years and contributed to some of the
area's most significant landmarks. He moved into the real estate industry in 1995,
working throughout the Yarra Ranges, Murrindindi, and Nillumbik shires.
 
 
 
 
In 2007, Bill decided to set off on his own, beginning Integrity from home
before establishing the Yarra Glen branch a year later.
In 2015, Bill's son, William, opened the Kinglake branch.
 
 
From the very beginning, Integrity's calling card has been the service it provides
and the standard of business that it keeps. Integrity is defined by its pursuit of
positive, long-lasting relationships, the longevity of history and strength of
family, the importance it places on custodianship, and by
excellence in service, without compromise.
