Trimson Partners Real Estate

Our Team

John Verduci
Principal / Licensed Estate Agent


Experienced in selling all types of property, John has a thorough understanding of client’s needs and specialises in new developments and construction. He is also involved in property development and construction and is able to provide valuable advice to clients in the same industry.

Expert in sales and fully licensed since 2002, John gives nothing less than 100%, whether it is a small one-bedroom flat in Sunshine or a three-storey office building in Footscray.

Cross cultural links are vital for business in such an ethnically diverse area. John believes the values he has from his Italian background are similar to those of many other cultures. From them he understands the need for confidentiality, respect and trust as the basis for business and friendships.

Industry links are beneficial in an area that is alive with construction.

Results and experience aren’t only measured in dollars, but it’s hard to go past the $90 million worth of property John has brought to the business since starting his career back in 1991.

Bianca Pennino
Portfolio Manager


Currently managing her own portfolio of rental properties, Bianca gets a genuine kick out of achieving results for her clients, especially when telling renters they’ve been approved for a property. Witnessing her clients’ sheer joy and gratitude is her greatest reward, she says.

An established star at a young age, Bianca has already collected a number of awards including “Most Outstanding New Recruit” in 2013. This depth and breadth of experience has familiarised Bianca with all aspects of running a real estate agency, enabling her to serve clients with a broad range of needs.

Bianca’s late father was a property developer and licensed builder in Melbourne’s Western suburbs and attending job sites with him as a child piqued her interest in the property industry, as well laying the foundations for her deep local knowledge.
“I have only ever known Footscray,” Bianca says of the place she grew up in, citing the Footscray Market, local eateries and shopping outlets and the Whitten Oval as part of the suburb’s exciting “hustle and bustle.”

Bianca describes her team as “her backbone”, but she equally provides her colleagues and community with energetic leadership, passion and plenty of industry savvy. She credits her tight-knit Italian family and especially her mother and father for making her the person she is today. “My parents always taught me how to work hard,” says Bianca, who is a proud fianceé to Gaetano and devoted sister to two brothers.

Terry Cooper
Senior Sales Consultant


With over fifty years in the real estate game, Terry Cooper’s level of knowledge and experience is almost unmatched in Melbourne. A lifelong “people person”, Terry has the gift of the gab and considers it an honour to meet and assist people from all backgrounds and walks of life.

As much as he loves a good chat, Terry is also an excellent listener, something he says is indispensable when it comes to looking after clients. “You can’t sell people’s property if you don’t listen,” says Terry, and his clients come to him knowing that he’s going to keep their needs and wants front of mind.

His local knowledge is another distinct advantage. Terry has worked in Footscray for his entire career, bar two years, so it’s safe to say he knows the area like the back of his hand. No matter how long he’s been doing it, Terry is always striving to do better in his work — to net a bigger sale, exceed customer service expectations and make the buying and selling experience a pleasure for all involved.

Some of the many awards he’s received during his career include Top Constructional Referrer (four times), Top Volume Seller (three times), and the Agent of the Year award in 2018.

A mad sports fan, Terry has been a player and is a committee member of a number of different local sporting clubs such as the Footscray West & Albion football clubs (past president of both), Footscray City cricket club and Cobden football, netball and cricket club.

When he’s not selling houses or watching his beloved sports you might find him at the racing track — he owns a racehorse —cooking, or propagating orchids.
