Property Journey:  

The clients were introduced to Cohen Handler by a local real estate agent that had been trying to service them for a number of months. Due to his limited reach (only presented properties within his network) he decided to refer them to a local buyer’s agent who had established relationships with all selling agents in their immediate search area.

The clients had been looking to purchase a large family home along the Balmain Peninsula; Rozelle, Balmain, Balmain East, and Birchgrove suburbs. However, they quickly found they were getting out priced due to the high demand from other buyers. After a total 6-8 month search, which included missing out on a number of properties, they agreed the market was too competitive and decided to meet with Natalija to discuss how she may be able to help.

Once our clients started to work with Natalija, she was able to short list a number of on market and off market properties which matched their brief. They came across Palmer Street in Balmain as an off market opportunity which was tenanted and not about to hit the market for another 6-8 weeks.

This enabled us to comfortably proceed with our due diligence by not rushing and keep an eye on out for other properties. We exchanged off market on Palmer Street on the 23rd December. The proximity to the Christmas holidays meant we had no competition and were able to negotiate a better purchase price.

The vendor saved a considerable amount of money on styling costs, marketing fees and vacancy rates as he was planning on going through a full auction campaign in the New Year if we did not proceed. This property would have achieve $2,150,000+ if it was to hit the market post-Christmas. Natalija managed to secure this within 8 weeks of her search.

The clients were very happy with the result.
