Professional Valuation for every property
Unlike some other agencies, I offer a formal professional Valuation of your property at my cost! This is a great way to start the discussion about price and will assist in your property’s price positioning – even if you already have a price in mind. Advertising your property at the right price will also ensure good attendance at your Open Houses.

Assistance with property presentation
Making sure your property looks its best can be the difference between a successful sale or an unsellable disaster. As my Agency’s Principal I have the time and expertise to have discussions with you and assist with the presentation of your property. I’ll give you down-to-earth, practical advice for both inside and outside that can result in significant savings.
Personal attendance at every Open House
I attend every Open House until your property is SOLD! Large agencies don’t have the time or resources to send a senior agent to every open house. When selling with me, potential buyers are greeted by an agent who can answer ALL of their questions and even guide those that are interested into making an initial “best offer”.
Negotiable commission or Purple Bricks?
As the Principal I’m able to have an open discussion about fees and advertising costs. Our approach can vary depending on the nature of the property and the price range it is in. It’s surprising what can succeed in terms of a lower advertising budget even for million-dollar plus properties!
Why spend more for no real result?
Free legal advice
As an experienced solicitor, I understand the legal framework and the variations that can be negotiated to assist with the sale of your property. Have you thought about leasing back your own property while you look for somewhere to move to? Have you thought about inclusions and exclusions for things you want to take or leave? Are you going to exchange by a Cooling Off period or a Section 66W Certificate? I’ll help you navigate the legal steps involved in order to ensure a successful sale.
In the majority of cases, the first contact that potential buyers have with your property is seeing the main photo online. This photo must be selected and produced carefully in order to encourage clicks and drive interest in your property. I use professional photography for all my listings (including drone shots!) and feature bright and light photos so your property looks its best. Our photography has received nothing but praise.
