Expat purchase

on Upper North Shore
Expat family with teenagers looking to purchase within a specific high school catchment area.

The Brief

To find and purchase a family home in Pymble, Turramurra or East Killara. Must include 3-4 bedrooms with room for in-laws to stay and a dog friendly yard.

The Result

Initially referred to Brady Marcs by their mortgage broker, we inspected over 25 properties for this client over a 6 weeks period. We identified and inspected an ideal property that was advertised for sale by auction, but with a higher price guide than required. After keeping in contact with the agent, we successfully secured the property well under the original price guide. We arranged painters and tradesmen and the family were delighted.

“We set Brady and her team a tough challenge in finding a property within a certain school catchment area, that could be lived in for a few years before either renovations or a complete knock down and rebuild, and all on a rather small budget for this area. But Brady was confident that this would not be a problem. We communicated closely with both Brady and Heidi throughout, and visited a number of properties with either Brady or Heidi, or both. They both would make suggestions of immediate minor changes that would accommodate our initial requirements on any of the properties, could answer any questions we had regarding what sort of era the property was built, whether rising damp could be a potential issue, plus with their expertise could identify very quickly potential problems, for example, where DIY has been carried out rather than carried out by a qualified trade. There was a particular property, early on in this process, which we were keen on, and following our own property inspection, both Brady and Heidi advised us not to go with the property because it would become very costly. Brady, Heidi and the team contacted estate agents on our behalf, undertook all the negotiations with the estate agents, recommending trusted property inspection services, and other trusted trades, advised what we needed to do and when. And a million other things behind the scenes, on top of providing valuable advise and guidance to us being complete novices in this field. We are very happy with our experience of Brady Marcs Buyers Agents, and would very much recommend them - they definitely are a very valuable resource. So much so, that we will be using Brady Marcs in the future when looking for our retirement home by the beach.”
