Much loved by generations of families who return every year, Avoca Beach is regarded as the jewel of the Central Coast.
Well known for its pristine, patrolled beach and relaxed lifestyle, 4,300 people currently call Avoca Beach home. There’s no doubt that life here revolves around the ocean, with great fishing, surfing and swimming. Established in 1948 the Avoca Beach Theatre is an historic institution and The Pines area on the beach a popular wedding venue. The Avoca Beach Surf Club with its stunning views hosts functions large and small. A monthly market is held for local growers to showcase their wares and is always well attended.
Avoca Beach village has all the essential services – doctor, dentist, chemist, newsagent - plus the best butcher for miles! Tennis courts, paddle boarding on the lake, or relax at one of the cafes – there’s enough to keep all the family amused.
The median house price is $1,000,000 (as at May ’20), with a sales growth over the past 5 years a healthy 56.7%. Many have realised the proximity to Sydney (93 kms on the M1), is do-able and so can fulfil their seachange dream without sacrificing a career in the ‘big smoke’.
Similarly, rental properties hold a median price of $640 (as at May ’20). This has increased by 21.9% over 5 years and rentals remain a very strong investment tool. Rental enquiry and applications are continually busy.
Holiday rentals are hugely popular and the range of options for holidaymakers increases yearly. Many families have been coming to Avoca for 30 years, quite often booking the same property every holiday. Investment in any type of holiday accommodation will prove a winner.
This jewel in the crown has something for everyone. Buy, rent, holiday lease or just come for a visit – it’s waiting for you.
Matthew Ellis was the salesman from George Brand Real Estate Copacabana, who sold our home in November 2011. During the sales period he was always obliging and kept us informed to what was happening and worked hard to follow up any enquiries. His determination gave us the confidence we had in him. We also appreciated the courtesy he showed us. We wish him good fortunes in his chosen profession.
It gives me great pleasure to recommend this delightful young man. I have recently purchased a property in Copacabana NSW and Matthew was the real estate agent who showed me through the property and finalised the deal. I found Matthew to be courteous and able to give me a sense of confidence in his negotiations. He had an amazing ability to negotiate the price with me, yet not make me feel pressured. I can highly recommend him to any one who may be thinking of hiring him.
Dear Kyle, A note to thank you for the excellent way you and your collegues handled the sale of our property at Austral Ave, Avoca Beach. Your initial advice , the transparency in regard to the sale price you advised, your consistent consultation about the process and your frank and open advice as required was greatly appreciated. As you are aware, we faced a very difficult market and for a short period of time it was necessary to lease the property. The leasing services provided by your company were extremely professional, well informed and timely communications occurred throughout the process. I always had absolute confidence in the integrity and openness of the information I was provided on price, bids and your advice on the transaction. You are free to use this letter to commend your services to any prospective clients . I look forward to catching up for a drink with you when I am next in Avoca.

Matthew Ellis is by far one of the best Real Estate Agents on the Central Coast. Matthew went above and beyond in delivering an outstanding result in the sale of our property. He communicated throughout the entire process from beginning to end, so we were aware of every detail.We couldn't have asked for a more professional agent and he is definitely who we will now recommend to our friends and family who are looking to sell their properties. Outstanding!!!!

Matthew was extremely helpful throughout the purchasing process, from actively helping me to find a suitable property through to ensuring that my purchase was finalised asap, which he did by coming to me after office hours on a Friday so that I could sign the contract. Due to his level of service and the experience I had with Matthew I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to other buyers and sellers.

Perfect Sale - Nov 2017
Matthew Ellis of George Brand Avoca, did a brilliant job selling our property at Copacabana. Ever since I mentioned to him, a couple of years back, that we were thinking about selling, he would call every few months to keep me updated about the market status in the area. He was never pushy and from our first conversation, I always felt comfortable chatting with him and sensed he was honest and reliable. When we decided the time was right, Matthew was the logical choice, and we weren't disappointed. Everything went exactly as Matthew explained and we ended up selling the property not only quickly, but at a price quite a bit higher than we had hoped for. Everything from Matthew's advice on marketing the property, through to his help negotiating with prospective buyers to reach a final price, worked as he described, making the whole process very painless. It felt like Matthew was really working with us to get the very best outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend Matthew Ellis as not only a great real estate agent, but also as an honest, easy to work with person of integrity.
Outstanding Customer Service - 8 Dec 2017.
We first meet Matthew 11 months ago at an open house when we first started our housing search, 11 months later we finally found a place. At that first open house I was very impressed with Matthews market and area knowledge and attention to detail, but the thing that really got me was his follow up, after each open he'd be on the phone to see how things went and if we were interested. Throughout our search Matthew would always let us know of new properties coming onto the market and arrange private inspections if the times didn't line up. I work in the customer service industry myself and I must say I've never receive such a high level of service from anyone I've dealt with. As it turns out we brought our new house from Matthew after that long search and of coarse had no hesitation in listing our old place with Matthew, Matt sold our place in just 3 weeks and that was due to his hard work, outstanding customer service and going the extra mile. We cant recommend Matthew Ellis highly enough for buying or selling your home.
Thank You Matthew! - 12 Oct 2017
We chose Matthew Ellis as the agent to sell our home because of his local knowledge, reputation and genuine character. Throughout the whole process he has been professional, enthusiastic and understanding of our wants and needs. His marketing strategy worked and the house sold in the first week with him being able to negotiate a price that exceeded our expectations. It has been a pleasure dealing with Matthew and we would be happy to recommend him to anyone wanting to sell their home.
Dear Kyle, We are truly appreciative for the professionalism we received during the sale of our house. We thank you and your highly qualified staff for all of your hard work.
Dear Kyle, Thank you for all of the effort you put in during the sale of our home and the period leading up to the sale as well. You did an outstanding job for us all the way through and we are most grateful.
I wish to advise that during the sale of my land in Avoca, Kyle kept in touch with me several times a week to keep me abreast of the interest shown. Thanks to Kyle we did sell our land for a better price than expected. I would recommend his services in the future.
Excellent Agent - 29 Oct 2017
It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Matthew. He was professional, genuine and easy to communicate with. He kept us in the loop with potential properties until we found exactly what we were looking for, in our ideal location. We couldn’t recommend him higher.
