Peter and Priya were looking to purchase their first home together and enlisted Alexandra’s services in 2013. They both had different views in what they wanted to achieve in an ideal apartment. Peter desired a modern apartment and Priya was hoping for something with character in an older building. After looking at a variety of properties throughout the inner eastern suburbs and city fringe we secured a beautiful apartment in the heart of Glebe which met the needs of both Priya and Peter – a terrace converted into three modern apartments which still had the external features of a Victorian heritage home. The apartment was purchased in a short period of time and secured below the asking price.
As first time buyers Peter and I had no idea about the process of buying property and being that we are both busy professionals, we rarely find time off together. After spending what little time we had viewing properties during inspections we soon realized what an uphill struggle the whole process is.
A colleague at work recommended enlisting the help of a buyers agent. Having found Cohen Handler and after our initial meeting with Ben, we were very impressed with the service they could offer us. Shortly after, we were introduced with Alexandra. Alexandra is amazing! She was on call for us 24/7, extremely knowledgeable about the property market, professional, meticulous and very diligent.
Our brief was very specific. A two bedroom apartment in an old “character” building, preferably of Victorian era (to please me) with fully refurbished modern interiors (to please Peter). Trying to find these types of properties around the 750K mark is almost impossible. However, not only did Alex find our dream home, Alex was able to secure the property under the asking price during the peak of the Sydney property market in December 2013. In short, Alex made the impossible, possible and she secured our property at a steal of a price.
Since moving in, there has not been a day that has gone past that we don’t smile at each other thinking how lucky we are with our perfect home. We had a dream and with the help of Alex, our dream has come true.”
