About Us

Besselink Master Painters is a third generation family business which has been servicing the Canberra region since 1952.  The company was started as “Besselink Bros” by Cor and Rin Besselink.

Elton Willis and Jeremy Zutt are grandsons of Cor Besselink and have been running the Company since 1998, keeping the same company ethic of “Quality work on time” they strive to uphold the quality workmanship.

The company has a core group of long term employees, some of whom have been with us for 30+ years. Jobs undertaken by the company over the years have been many and varied, mainly larger buildings in Canberra and district.  We also specialize in heritage work and are listed in the Heritage trust Register as well as being accredited with lead based paint removal certification.


In 2016, the company started to provide professional valuation services in local regional NSW and Canberra residential markets, and has witnessed its rapid growth in local markets in the recent years. Unlike most valuation companies that deal with banks and other financial institutions for mortgage purposes, and are fundamentally about volume, Besselink Valuers is a client-oriented team with personal attention to specific valuation needs of our clients, particularly to the needs of our existing and still increasing number of loyal clients from the construction industry.
