Requirements and search: I had only ever spoken to Elaine on the phone (I am based overseas) but it didn’t take more than 20-minutes to feel 100% confident that I would be in good hands. So when she quickly recommended that I consider an apartment in Bondi that she had sniffed out – a real “unique fixer upper”, I was happy to listen. Having been through the property buying lark before, it was clear that she had really done her homework on the flat, and I felt that with her proposed strategy, I stood a good chance of succeeding at auction.
Outcome: Elaine’s strategy – go in with a quick “shock and awe” bid right out of the blocks, to throw off the punters, and make clear she wasn’t going to let the property go (clearly telegraphing that she had room to move even higher), worked a treat. She had sized up the competition perfectly, and succeeded, securing the property at auction for much less than the maximum I was willing to bid.
Recommend: I would highly recommend Elaine’s services. She is sharp as a tack, has a great sense of humour, and is incredibly easy to work with. I secured a great flat in Bondi for well below market value, all down to Elaine’s great work.
