"..calmness reassuring throughout.... "
Location: Upper North Shore
Buyer type: Homebuyer
As a home buyer, we found Matt’s expertise, professionalism and calmness under pressure extremely reassuring throughout what was an extremely stressful period. There is no substitute for an insider’s view of the residential real estate industry, regardless of how much you think you have learned from the media and talking to friends. Matt regularly went beyond the call of duty, working weekends and evenings on our behalf as well as offering to undertake the pre-settlement inspection. Matt also deferred to his colleague when we changed tack midway through our search and began focusing on a different part of Sydney. Although we were initially disappointed that we missed out on our first choice property at our first auction, it was reassuring to know that the final price came in well above Matt’s appraised value. Just as importantly, Matt steered us away from properties that were less suited to our needs and would have taken many years to recoup a reasonable capital gain. When we found a property that my wife and I both liked, Matt negotiated a price that was $50k below what the vendor was seeking 6 months prior – a tremendous outcome given that average prices in the area had actually appreciated during this period. I suspect Matt’s familiarity with the vendor’s agent and his negotiating acumen greatly assisted in this process. I have no hesitation in recommending Matt and his propertybuyer colleagues to anyone interested in securing property as an owner or investor. I shall be seeking Matt’s services when the time comes for my wife and I to source investment properties.
