Fil Defina

Sales Consultant

A little about me

She’s been on House Rules and now she’s out to make your house rule on the market!

Fil has a professional career that spans greater than the average salesperson. Her broad experience includes advertising, interior design, sales and small business ownership – all of which have conditioned her for a career in real estate.

Fil appeared on Channel 7’s ‘House Rules’ in 2016 and with her skills placed highly in the competition. “The whole experience opened my eyes, I learnt how to negotiate with the people working around me, how to add value to homes and developed a ‘never give up’ attitude.” After this intensive experience she has gained a wealth of knowledge which can be readily passed on to her clients to grab the best price for their property.

“What I enjoy most is connecting with people, getting accustom to their individual situation and then working with them to achieve their expectations.” Her understanding of what real estate means from a buyer and seller perspective is all too familiar given that she has been in both positions many times before.

Fil has bought, sold and lived in the West for over 20 years. “I love the area that I live in which makes me even more passionate to get out there in the community and appreciate all it has to offer, this contributes to my ability to sell homes”.

Along with the love Fil has for Melbourne’s west, her clients appreciate her styling advice and how she is not only willing to sell their home but will go the extra mile to prepare their homes for sale.

Fil has a bubbly and passionate personality that she loves to share with her family and friends. She makes the most of her spare time by walking around the Maribyrnong river, enjoying a meal with friends and of course shopping.


“Thank you Fil. Congratulations to you also. You provided very professional agency coverage, service and support which was very much appreciated. As we venture into our next stage, we are also very excited and very much looking forward to building and establishing our new home with a “grand view” of the Maribyrnong river and valley. Best regards.” – R and L

“I would just like to say a big huge THANK YOU to our real estate agent Fil for the fantastic, amazing, incredible work she did selling our property. Fil is such a wonderful lady who went above and beyond her work ethic. Fil kept us informed about every open day by text message and always followed up with a phone call. She made this process so easy and comfortable for us. Fil was at every single open very early and even made sure everything in our property was clean and tidy. Words cannot describe how grateful we are to her and Burnham Real Estate. THANK YOU so much for everything, Fil is a true lady and absolutely committed to a true 5 star service. Job well done.” – Effie Fonseca, WEST FOOTSCRAY

“Just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for your help with buying our new home in Maidstone. My wife and I are very pleased with the overall experience with yourself! We thought that the process would be much harder, but you simplified it for us by dumbing down everything so that we could understand the realestate mumbo-jumbo and helped with making a decision on the property. Really love your energy, and passion for helping customers!” – Sri & Rekha

“Thank you Fil for a successful outcome. I am providing my testimonial below in appreciation for all your efforts. Fil is a fabulous lady with great inter-personal and communication skills. She is totally dedicated to what she does and goes beyond the call of duty at all times. Her focus and attention to her work and to her customers makes her a real asset to have on your team. I would not hesitate to recommend Fil to anyone wanting a successful outcome in selling their property.” – Claude
