Property journey:

This was a challenging journey for CohenHandler. We investigated in depth other properties we had considered, and this led us to secure this 3 bedroom property at $1M prior to auction. A great deal for our client!


Little did I know when I decided to buy a house in the inner west that I would be trying to buy in one of the most competitive and bullish markets.  After a month of trying to do it by myself from Melbourne and getting nowhere, I decided to get Robert involved.  After a couple of close calls, Robert, with the assistance of Natalija, managed to secure me a beautiful little house in Petersham prior to auction, a miracle really given the state of the market!

I have to say, I was a little shocked when I got the call from Robert telling me that our offer had been accepted, because I had resigned myself to having to spend at least another six months looking and watching more and more houses move beyond my budgetary reach.  Without Robert and Natalija’s focus, determination, knowledge of the market, unique insights, advice, connections and negotiating skills, I really don’t think we would have had any luck in buying anything in this market, let alone at the price we did.  So I will always be grateful to the two of them for helping me through this process.

Apart from the skills set out above, Robert and Natalija are both extremely professional and offer a level of service that can only be described as exceptional!  I would therefore have no hesitation in using their services again, or recommending them to anyone that is considering buying in Sydney.
