Property Journey:

We have just bought our expat client from Hong Kong her dream apartment in Potts Point! “I am so happy with the purchase of my apartment and count myself extremely fortunate to have had Michael and Hugh in my corner, especially considering I am based in Hong Kong. The level of commitment, professionalism, considered and practical counsel, knowledge, expertise and support was exceptional; Michael made the whole process appear seamless and minimised my nerves throughout the experience. I do not think I could have achieved such a wonderful result on my own and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Michael and Hugh to anyone who is looking for property.”

A busy young professional, living and working in Hong Kong, our client came to us with an exacting brief. Her goal was to purchase an investment now that could be rented for a few years before returning to Australia to occupy and make a luxurious home. Our client loves the vibrant location on Macleay Street, with the ability to walk everywhere for convenience, the spacious open plan layout and the lovely Art Deco character of the recently refurbished “Werrington”.
