Cohen Handler came recommended to me via my broker. I had been house-hunting off and on for some time and not getting any traction on my own. As a first time buyer in a very tight market, I was growing incredibly frustrated being misled by unrealistic buyers guides, astounding auction results, as well as missing out on properties because I wasn’t able to get to all the inspections.
I engaged with Rachel Cruz a couple of months before signing. Meeting Rachel for the first time, I liked her instantly. She made me feel comfortable and was clearly an expert in the Inner West market. It was important for me to partner with someone I felt I could trust to give me the right advice and who would act with my best interests in mind. Rachel ticked all these boxes and more.
Rachel saved me countless hours researching and inspecting properties. She took the time to understand my needs and requirements, both shortlisting properties that matched my brief as well as those which encouraged me to broaden my scope in one way or another. Rachel made herself available to me 24/7 and became that genuinely trusted adviser.
In the end, it was an on-market property Rachel secured for me by private treaty. It was a super quick turnaround with Rachel working hard to knock out the competition early and get our negotiations across the line.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rachel to anyone else. She is now permanently on my speed dial!
