A sale price $100,000 above the reserve allowed the sellers to comfortably live out their retirement dream.
The sellers for 2/45-49 Pellisier Road initially only wanted to show their property to get a sense of what price they might get when they choose to sell.
However, there was so must interest only from our database that they saw what a good opportunity it would be to sell.
The property was propelled into an auction campaign, attracting 5 qualified, registered bidders.
After spirited bidding, the property sold to elated buyers for $2,050,000. The sellers were delighted with this result, as it allowed them to move to the next stage of their life with far more security.
We contacted Kathleen and Damian as we discussed our own undecided position on whether to and subsequently engaged LJ Hooker Avnu to allow some private client viewings of our townhouse on an “off-market” basis, with the objective of ascertaining a value range and the extent of likely interest. During this time we sought out areas outside Sydney that might suit our dreams as we meandered towards retirement. Kathleen took every opportunity to value-add in terms of information and contacts, and when we ultimately decided to place our townhouse for sale by auction we were very comfortable with extending the scope of our engagement. Selling a home can be quite stressful however Kathleen and Damian did well to keep us informed and coached (rather than coaxed) us along the journey. We enjoyed a relationship with a comfortable personal touch balanced by much experience and professionalism. By the time of auction day, we were so well briefed about our potential bidders we felt we knew them personally. Conversely, Kathleen invested much time before auction day keeping these parties informed and comfortable with the auction process, and ensuring they had answers to all their questions about our property. The auction day result was beyond our expectations, and our buyers were extremely delighted. Many people congratulated us on this, but really the accolades should go to the Kathleen and Damian team. Well done.Archer & Philippa Whetham - Sellers
