We engaged Rich Harvey late in 2020 to find us a house in St Ives, after meeting and interviewing with 4 different Buyers’ Agent organisations. Rich and Propertybuyer looked the most professional, were very attentive to our requirements and had a huge knowledge of the area and market. This was by far the most difficult time to buy a property in Sydney (and Australia) as it was a 100% Sellers’ market with massive, unending demand, and house prices that were skyrocketing. Rich was confident he would find us our forever home, and continued contacting potential sellers, doing leaflet drops and liaising with the sales agents. In just over 4 months Rich managed to find us the property we loved and managed to negotiate a price we could afford, in this extremely tough market. If it had not been for Rich and Propertybuyer, we do not believe we would have been able to buy a house in this market. We have nothing but the utmost respect and praise for Rich Harvey and Propertybuyer, they made us feel like we were their only client and handled all aspects of finding the properties, organising private inspections and doing all the negotiation. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Rich Harvey and Propertybuyer to anyone looking to purchase a home.
Trevor & Alison
Trevor and Alison were looking to buy a nice quality four bedroom home after renting for a considerable time in the St Ives area. They had very particular standards about the property they were looking for, and while I knew it would be a tricky brief, I was very happy to take on the challenge. With an initial budget of $2 million I explained the quality of home that they could afford to buy, and they were then able to increase their budget to $2.25m. Casting a wider net to include not only St Ives but the Forest area, I showed them a wide range of on and off market properties. In early 2001 I was competing with up to 25 other bidders at auction which meant that the reserve price was completely blown out of the water and the sale prices were going well above the guide. While we missed out on a few properties at auction, I continued to be very persistent and tenacious in the search. Eventually we found a nicely renovated five bedroom house in St Ives and I succeeded in negotiating acceptance of a pre-auction offer. After exchange they were on cloud nine and celebrating they had finally secured still their own home!
