It has been a great pleasure to have you on our side and, over these past months, you have buoyed us up with your enthusiastic and confident professionalism even when our property search seemed daunting. We are extremely grateful for your expert negotiation skills, which allowed us to become the new owners of a home in Northbridge. Importantly, we thank you for your friendship which we greatly value.Kerrie & GordonNorthbridge
Hiring Amanda is an exceptionally good investment when buying a house – saving money and time. We hired Amanda when looking to upgrade our house in the north shore. Amanda listened patiently to what we were looking for and took time to clarify where we had differences of opinion and to understand our trade-offs. When we brought houses to Amanda’s attention she made sure that we stuck to our priorities and avoided being sucked in by emotional attributes. Amanda came in to her own when we found the right house – leveraging her relationships with local agents and her knowledge of the market to give us a real sense of the properties market value. She was able to point us in the right direction to understand the builders report and to cost any additional work that we would need. Her research made it easy for us to get finance from the bank. Amanda’s advice during negotiation was sound and saved us a multiple of her fee. After buying, Amanda made sure everything was in place for settlement and helped us find the right agent to sell our old house. We are very grateful for Amanda’s support.Phil & AnitaWollstonecraft
We were looking for a family house in a very specific area, where there wasn’t much on the market. After a few months of dragging small children to every viewing we decided we needed some help. Amanda came highly recommended and from our first meeting we felt confident she would find us the family home we were looking for. During her campaign she letter box dropped 1000 houses on our behalf and, through this and her close relationships with local real estate agents, she got us in to see off market properties we never would have found without her. When we found our now house it was off market and we were the only ones to view it. She negotiated on our behalf and we got a house with all our specifications in the area we wanted for a price we would not have achieved without her. It was a great experience and we would never buy a house without Amanda in future. Her fee was the best investment we made.Emma & MartinNorth Curl Curl
After looking for a house in Sydney’s inner west off and on for over two years and attending open homes and auctions without success, the impending arrival of our first child prompted us to contact Amanda as we needed help to find something quickly.
Having Amanda’s expertise made a massive difference to the whole experience, what used to be a tedious and stressful house hunting process was quickly transformed by Amanda into something we enjoyed.
Amanda supported us through every step of the process, she worked to our brief and sent us a list of open homes which she took us to each week, managed all contact with real estate agents and emailed her extensive list of contacts to let them know what we were looking for, she even did a letter box drop in the area we liked to see if anyone would be interested in selling their home.
Within less than 3 months Amanda found us exactly what we had been looking for in an off the market sale, further to this her negotiation skills meant we ended up buying into an area we never thought we could afford.
We are so happy with our new home and would highly recommend Amanda to anyone looking to buy in the Sydney property market.Lauren & BrianDulwich Hill
Having never used a buyer’s agent in the past we were a bit circumspect on whether we should go for one or not. We were
referred to Amanda by a colleague of ours. After initial contact we took some time and finally decided to give her a go. Straight off she was someone who comes to your levels and listens to you…Mind our words “listen”. Most sellers talk but she seems to have clearly picked-off what exactly we were after. She took a couple of days to digest our requirements and have a look at the houses we had seen in the past to tune to our frequency. And once she was tuned in to what we were after… by God she was LOCKED AND LOADED. She put across a plethora of options in front of us bringing her insights and experience to work for us. Her remarkable judgement and advice makes sure that you never put a foot wrong. She was swift like lightning when she had to be and swooped a bargain for us. Every penny spent on her gets back to you as savings (Multiplied many times over !!).
We could not have settled for the house we got, for the price we got it for and the speed at which we got it for. She and her team are God sent and worked with us, for us. Her attention to detail is second to none and that helped us get the contract exactly how we wanted. Her guidance to us was just amazing. It was more like a God sent fairy working with us rather than a human.
After having got the house , we had to pinch ourselves getting up the next day and was hard to believe that we got EXACTLY what we wanted , at an unbelievably quick time frame.
Her slogan “Amanda ON MY SIDE” summarizes the experience of working with her and the super fantastic team she has. Hard to believe what she does and how she does it. We have just one word to describe our journey with her, and it is… WOWJavis & VeenuPymble
We hired Amanda to bid at auction on our behalf as we were making an emotional purchase and needed a cool head. As it turned out, we were the only bidders, the reserve was set above our maximum and the property passed in. However, Amanda represented our interests superbly when negotiating with the selling agent and vendor. Her skilful management of their expectations put us in a position to be able to buy the property the next day. She has an impressive presence and is extremely professional. On a personal level, Amanda was also very happy to spend time teaching us about how the process worked from an agent’s perspective, which was above and beyond what we had paid her to do. We were very happy with her and would highly recommend her to others.Olivia & MartinLeichhardt
After several months of trawling the Sydney property market to no avail we were referred to Amanda. At first, we were quite cynical, however, within only a short matter of time she had tuned in to our wants and needs. She identified potential opportunities, accompanied us to viewings, both public and private, always giving candid advice as if she were buying the property herself. She was our trusted partner. She found us our dream house in Balmain, off-market – we would never have found it ourselves. She has demonstrated the technical ability and emotional intelligence to deliver results on behalf of her clients and we recommend her unreservedly.Alun & MelindaBalmain
Pete and I have moved into our Waverton flat and we absolutely love it. Thank you again for helping us to find and buy such a great place. We would never have been able to do it without all your wonderful negotiating skills and guidance.Janet & PeterWaverton
After years of trying to purchase our first home, my wife and I had almost given up hope. Having limited experience and limited time we found ourselves constantly missing out.
Almost as a last resort we decided to give Amanda a call. She immediately gave us confidence in her abilities and as promised we had the keys to our new home within months.
Amanda did all the leg work, sourcing, short listing and refining what we were after. She was always positive and kept us on track.
The most important thing was when we found something we liked, she took control of all the negotiations. Amanda’s strong relationships and market knowledge are essential in such a competitive market. This helped us finally get the advantage we needed to secure a property we loved in minimal time. I can’t tell you how much of a difference this makes. I actually don’t know how people are able to secure the property they want at the price they want without Amanda.Jeremy & ShivaunBelmore
After many years of looking and attempting to buy in the competitive Sydney Inner West Market without success, we were provided the name of Amanda Segers. Liz and I did a fair bit of research and have to admit we were very sceptical about bringing in someone else to assist us.
Amanda had a number of close contacts with local Real Estate Agents which made us feel very special when fighting amongst everyone else.
It was all a bit of a dream to be honest and we can definitely say that without Amanda we would not have had a chance to buy a home in Sydney’s Inner West. The property was found off market, was bought under market price and has so much potential. During the buying process Amanda found us a new Mortgage Broker (Sarah) and Conveyancer (Campbell) who were both awesome and made everything happen almost effortlessly – it was a great team effort!!
Liz and I would like to thank Amanda so very much and would be more than happy to recommend her to all future home buyers.Matt & LizCanterbury
Upon receiving a glowing referral, we engaged Amanda Segers as a buyer’s agent to help us in purchasing a new home. Having been out of the market for over ten years and being time poor, we were keen to avoid the confusion and stress of the competitive Sydney real estate maze.
We were very impressed with Amanda’s knowledge, professionalism and genuine passion to help us find the best property possible. She took the time to find out exactly what we wanted and we only viewed properties that fitted our brief. In fact, she was so good that we only viewed three properties in three weeks before finding our perfect home!
Amanda then navigated the nerve wracking purchase process on our behalf, giving sound advice every step of the way and assisting us with all the necessary paperwork (even the strata application for our pet dog!)
Within three weeks of searching, we were thrilled to purchase a beautiful apartment and having now moved in, we couldn’t be happier. Amanda’s local knowledge and her relationships with agents was invaluable and her commitment and dedication saved us time, money and stress.
We would highly recommend Amanda’s services to anyone looking to buy a property and would happily engage Amanda should we purchase another property.Stephanie & PaulMosman
I was delighted to hear that Amanda has made an entrepreneurial move and started her own buyer’s agency – there is no question that it will succeed and be a wonderful service to a diverse range of buyers. Amanda is our buyers’ agent. Her tireless energy made us feel as though we were her only clients and why we feel compelled to say that she is our buyers’ agent. She went to massive lengths to ensure we had every possible chance of securing the house we had fallen in love with. It is obvious that Amanda has a passion for what she does and it was such a comfort to know that she was on our side. We knew with Amanda’s expertise that we were making the right decision every step of the way. I would recommend anyone to use her service – sit back and relax and actually enjoy the buying process!!Carolyn & SemihLewisham
We decided to engage the services of a Sydney Buyers’ Agent after months of disappointments when trying secure a new home.
When we met Amanda Segers we were impressed with her professionalism, enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for real estate.
Amanda exceeded our expectations. She leveraged relationships with agents in the area and utilised her sound knowledge of the local market to find us a property that maximised value for money. In just a couple of weeks she had secured a large 3 bedroom home when all we thought we would ever afford was a 2 bedroom.
Amanda saved us money, stress and time. We would still be looking for a home if it wasn’t for her!
We would recommend Amanda’s services to anyone looking to buy property and would have no hesitations engaging Amanda for the purchase of our next property.Tristan & AnnetteAnnandale
In purchasing a Queens Park house in Sydney, Amanda was our competitive advantage. Her experience, insight and drive was invaluable in being able to negotiate a substantial discount ahead of the auction, and quickly outmanoeuvre other interested parties to the signed contract. This saving more than covered her fees, but most importantly, she also gave us the peace of mind that a true professional was on our side. She coordinated everything and provided us with clear information upon which to make the right decision. Amanda is a vital member of a purchaser’s team, and I wouldn’t dream of going back to buying alone.Karl D.Queens Park
We had been looking for a property for 12 months before we decided to engage a buyer’s agent. Amanda was recommended to us by our mortgage broker and we never looked back! We were clear on what we wanted but having Amanda on our side helped us get even clearer on exactly what fit our brief and what didn’t. She was tireless in looking for options for us and I’m sure that every Real Estate agent within our search area knew her and exactly what we were looking for.
She had agents ringing her with properties and got us in to see the good ones before they went to market. Given that we both work in very demanding jobs, having Amanda doing this legwork for us made the previous 12 months seem like a lot of wasted effort!
When we eventually found the house for us, it was on the open market and going to auction but was expected to sell prior. There was a lot of interest in this house with multiple contracts already out and in negotiation. This is where having Amanda on our side made all the difference. She found out what price the vendor was looking for (it definitely helps to have inside knowledge) and we were able to arrange our valuation, building and pest inspections and put in an offer the very next day. After being pipped at auction and losing another house at the last minute (literally), we were determined that we weren’t going to lose this one. Even when another buyer came in with a higher offer, Amanda was able to engage with the agent who then rang the vendor. After a quick conversation, we met their request to extend the settlement, matched the other offer and the vendor signed the contract. We went from viewing the house to a signed contract in just over 24 hours!
Without Amanda, we would have paid more for our house, or worse still missed out again. Easily worth the fee many times over. But even after the contract was signed, Amanda made sure that everything went smoothly with the settlement and moving in. It’s the value add that really made it an extra special and extra personal experience.
We are in our new home now and couldn’t be happier. If you are considering using a buyers’ agent, do it. You won’t regret it. If you are looking for a dedicated professional with the inside knowledge, a wide network of relationships and rarest of all, that personal touch that makes you feel special, we highly recommend using Amanda Segers.Steve & KristyChatswood
My husband, daughter and I returned to Sydney with a grand plan, to sell our home in Rydalmere and find something similar in the inner west. A feasible and manageable plan…or so we thought.
We searched for a house for a year, keeping close to local real estate agents whom we knew now by name. We didn’t let our hopes be dampened by the massive queues lining up to view open homes each weekend. After missing out on our dream home we decided that the prospect of having someone do the searching / evaluating / negotiations for us sounded like a dream come true.
Our first impression of Amanda was that she was approachable, professional, a good listener and ambitious (having just set up her own business she was driven to succeed). Plus, of course, she had good contacts from her history being a selling agent. She seemed determined that she could find the right property for us and confident in her ability to do so. We liked the fact that, apart from a nominal fee, Amanda was only going to really earn her money by finding us a house. Amanda immediately got to work short-listing and viewing properties, contacting all her industry contacts. She viewed properties that had not even yet been listed. We immediately felt an enormous sense of relief and renewed hope. We knew that the buyer numbers outweighed the properties available and felt we had an edge. Amanda then did a mail drop in our desired area. Unruffled that this didn’t produce our home, next she went door knocking. Streets were shortlisted and she utilized her professional charm. A week later we purchased the very first house Amanda knocked on! Amanda negotiated a great price for us, as the owner had no costs they too were happy. We were deliriously happy and still are!
Without Amanda on our side we would undoubtedly still be looking, spending our weekends with the masses, bidding for properties that could go for $200k over reserve at auction. Our only regret is that we didn’t employ Amanda sooner. She is a fantastic buyers’ agent and not only has happy customers, but customers who value her hard work, determination and warm personality. To say that Amanda worked tirelessly on our behalf is an understatement and we recommend her thoroughly. Thanks Amanda.The Lloyd FamilyEarlwood
We were relatively new to Sydney and were overwhelmed by the Sydney property market, finding the house buying experience to be difficult and stressful. We were very grateful to have Amanda working with us and felt like we were her only clients at all times. Amanda was completely accommodating and encouraging when we decided to change our search location. If we had not engaged Amanda’s services, we would either still be looking for a house or we would have overpaid to end the frustration. It was definitely a worthwhile investment for us.Ben & DanielleBeacon Hill
Thank you so much Amanda – your help, advice and expert knowledge enabled my husband and I to move forward confidently with our property purchase, with the assurance that we were making the right decision and securing the property at the right price. Your professionalism, friendliness and genuine interest in ensuring the best outcome for us, made it a pleasure to work with you and I will definitely be seeking your assistance in all our future property purchases.Vanessa & DamienWaverton
After looking for our first home for almost two years in the inner west, and getting married this year, we wanted to have a place that we could move into and call our own.
Missing out at auctions, bidding wars with agents, going to up to 5 house viewings every weekend and not wanting to overpay on a property, we felt that a buyer’s agent was the way to go.
Amanda has been instrumental in helping us get our dream home. Offered not only great advice, professional friendly service, but took the stress and time out of searching for a home.
Always contactable, does all the research and with her range of contacts we were able to get a better insight into the industry and were constantly updated with new listings that suited our tastes and budget.
Amanda managed to secure a home we loved at an auction that had a lot of interest. Without her this would not have been possible.
Thank you Amanda for all your help and we look forward to moving into our new home.Alex & DomRozelle
Amanda was fantastic and took all the stress out of buying an apartment.
I had been trying unsuccessfully to look for an apartment and was becoming increasing discouraged and frustrated.
When Amanda took over she understood exactly what I wanted and only arranged for me to look at apartments that she knew I would like. She found 3 great apartments that I loved and would have been happy to buy. She went to the auction for me and successfully bid for my first preference.
I couldn’t be happier with Amanda’s professionalism, enthusiasm and personalised service. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a property.DeonneGlebe
If it weren’t for Amanda I’d probably still be looking for a house and suffering the regular ordeal of weekend open houses. I would recommend her to anyone who is time-poor or hates the property game or just feels unable do it all themselves.AnneAshfield
Auction bidding: Great work Amanda – very good job and very professional – your help and support throughout the process was excellent – your response, communication and your research really were invaluable and appreciated! Your nerves and demeanor were calming for us and our friends…all commented on how well you did and would definitely consider using you going forward. We will send some people your way over the upcoming years, but for now we’ll be happy moving in and getting settled into the new home you helped us get! Thanks so much!Brian & LauraPymble
In the purchase of our home, we were truly fortunate to have Amanda assisting us. Her extensive experience was immediately obvious and used to great advantage to obtain the best possible result for us. We were impressed by her commitment, professional manner and dedication. Amanda was open and generous with her assistance, and her advice was insightful and timely. It’s hard to imagine how anyone can navigate the real estate maze without such guidance. Thank you Amanda!Andrew & ElaineLeichhardt
I first met Amanda Segers via a recommendation from an acquaintance in real estate. When Amanda visited me for our initial briefing meeting, her passion for helping people find their dream home was obvious. Over the weeks that followed, Amanda was consistent in sourcing properties that matched my criteria and supported me every step of the way. When Amanda took me to view the property I ultimately fell in love with she made it her mission to do whatever she could to ensure I was the successful buyer. The process was not at all stressful because Amanda is such a positive person. With her extensive knowledge and experience, she helped me buy my dream home amidst fierce competition. I would not have been able to secure this property without Amanda. Thanks to her exceptional talent and expertise, I am now planning to move into my dream home in a matter of weeks! Amanda is a warm, sincere and radiant person and I cannot recommend her highly enough.MelindaNorthbridge
With only a few weeks to go before our tenancy ended and with a baby on the horizon, we were desperate to find a home in Sydney’s tough market. Amanda swooped to the rescue. We had narrowed our focus to three homes in an area in Sydney’s inner west. Amanda quickly discovered what the real estate agents weren’t telling us, and helped us consolidate our efforts on the most likely property. She then negotiated expertly with the agents and proved a godsend at obtaining contracts and scooting them over to be signed in the nick of time. All along the way she was always available to talk things through, suggest tactics and provide sage advice. Thanks to her, we got what we wanted.Elizabeth & AshleyElizabeth & Ashley,
We were novices to the auction process so when we found our dream home, we immediately engaged Amanda to represent us. At the auction, and the days preceding, Amanda’s experience, knowledge and insight proved invaluable. She influenced the outcome and negotiated the sales price to our advantage. It was far from the stressful experience that we’d seen so many of our friends go through.Maisie & IvanStanmore
Amanda, Amanda… how do we begin to sing your praises?
Where there was exasperation, Amanda restored hope.
Where chaos once reigned, Amanda imposed order.
In place of disorganisation, we suddenly had ruthless efficiency.
Instead of the murk usually peddled by vendors’ agents, here was clarity.
Dark days were replaced with humour and optimism.
Our only regret in choosing Amanda was that our experience was over too soon. In our short time together (and that’s a real testament to the speed at which she just gets things done), personal growth and professional insights came thick and fast. Finding your perfect home is one thing, but the manner in which you find it is another entirely. We doff our hats to the house hunting phenomenon that is Amanda.Richard & BronwenCollaroy Plateau
We had the fortune to meet Amanda early in our house hunting process and straight away we were impressed by her professionalism and efficiency as well as her guidance through the buying of our first home. It was a stressful time for us but she made us feel safe and confident that we will pay a fair price for the property we wanted. At the end the result was absolutely fantastic, we got the house for less than what we were prepared to pay! We were lucky to have her on our side!Markus & VanessaMaroubra
I’m so glad I decided to get Amanda on board to help with my search. With Amanda’s help I picked up an amazing property at a great price.
After recently returning to Sydney, I wasn’t very familiar with the Sydney market. So Amanda went to great lengths to show me what my budget would buy in the different areas that I was interested in. She really took the time to understand what it was I was after. I never felt like I was being rushed. In fact, Amanda’s dedication to finding the right property for me was truly impressive.
I’m convinced that Amanda’s fee is absolutely worth it for the value she added. When it came down to negotiating for the place I wanted, even though there was a lot of interest from other parties, Amanda was able to secure the purchase, and at a great price. Amanda’s experience and knowledge of the market put me so far ahead of the rest of the crowd.MarkSurry Hills
Being a complete novice to auction bidding, I started to get cold feet two days prior to the auction date. I knew I needed to get someone with sound professional knowledge and experience to help bid on my behalf.
I was lucky to find Amanda through a Google search and within minutes Amanda returned my call. Within a couple of hours, she was able to indicate the number of bidders I could expect on the day and a price range the property could be expected to fetch. Her warm and friendly nature also had a calming effect on my nerves. I was extremely impressed with Amanda’s promptness and incredible efficiency to gain so much information about the property in such a short amount of time.
On the day of auction Amanda arrived early, prepared, and exuded a professional and composed demeanor.
Prior to bidding she walked through the property with us and was able to gently offer advice on what the property’s sale price might reach, and the bidding tactic she would use based on the number of interested parties on the day (13 bidders registered). Once the bidding started, Amanda was just incredible to watch. Her pacing, timing and ability to quickly adapt and respond to the bidding increments with ease and confidence had my partner and I signing the contract within a few minutes!!
Amanda was able to secure us our dream property under our maximum limit. The listing agent also notified us post-auction that there were other parties that could have bid higher, but Amanda was a force to be reckoned with and they just backed down!
I cannot stress enough how instrumental Amanda was in securing our property and we definitely attribute our positive outcome all to her.Shalini & RainaLewisham
The last box has been unpacked and we are still pinching ourselves that we own this lovely home – thanks largely to you.
Our home search was not an easy one – having rented for 12 years we knew very little about buying a home. After a year of looking and in the process developing a healthy mistrust of estate agents, we really needed someone on ‘our side’, looking after our best interests. You showed us homes to our specifications and never gave up as we rejected potentials and changed our minds.
We saw “the” house on Wednesday at 12pm and less than 48 hours later our offer was accepted – we owned our prefect family home! You simply made everything pain free – devising a strategy for us to secure the home, taking care of inspections and negotiations with the agents and then helping us with the move arrangements.
Your service and expertise have been faultless and using you was a great investment in our personal sanity and wellbeing.
We thoroughly recommend your services to anyone caught in the maze of home buying in Sydney.Steven & LuisaNaremburn
I engaged Amanda on the basic 3 property assessment plan, because I really didn’t think I needed a buyer’s agent, but wanted a professional opinion on a property I was interested in. Amanda’s feedback on the three properties was very useful, as an industry professional she was able to get inside information that I certainly wouldn’t have had access to. Amanda’s assessment of a property includes both the emotional and unemotional pros and cons of each property, as a buyer it gave me a better perspective on the places I was considering. While I had engaged Amanda to assess 3 properties, she was very generous giving me her time in discussing other properties that she hadn’t specifically looked at but was aware of, and giving me advice on things to consider when thinking about the value of a property (apart from the obvious appeal of a place).
I engaged Amanda to bid on a property for me. While I wasn’t successful, I certainly got much closer than I would have on my own. Amanda’s reading of the auction situation on the night was very accurate and her calm approach in an emotional situation stopped me from going over my budget and overpaying for the property.
As well as negotiating the sale, Amanda did all the footwork that was required in dealing with the selling agent and taking the signed contract into the agent’s offices, waiting around for solicitors and other work that I would have expected to do myself. Amanda’s negotiation of the price meant that I paid significantly less than I would have paid doing it myself. The saving I made was probably about 3 times the fee I paid Amanda. So very well worth it!
On my next time round in the property market, I would most definitely utilise the whole buyer’s agent package from Amanda. Engaging Amanda would have saved me months of time spent looking. In fact I was just about to switch to the full service option when I saw the place I did buy. The whole experience of having to spend so much time looking at properties, and then missing out at auction made me realise that Amanda’s fee as a buyer’s agent is extremely reasonable!
Amanda was a lovely person to deal with, professional, knowledgeable and very generous with her time and expertise. I would certainly recommend her services to anyone looking at real estate.AlexSt Peters
It’s been 4 months since you found our home and I wanted to experience living here to truly know you chose the right house for us before I wrote to you to thank you. I believe any Buyers Agent can find a house. But you went above and beyond that and got to know what we were genuinely searching for. After all I had been searching and scouring the market for 4 years before I met you.
The first meeting we had, I remember passing you a list of what I was looking for. A list that among plenty of other things included a treeless block in the leafy Kurringai zone. I further pushed you to find one renovated to exceptional standards on a flat block. And to make it all the more difficult, I remember telling you I don’t believe what I am searching for exists. However I had reached the end of my rope and no longer enjoyed the thought of looking for my perfect house. And then with your infectious smile, you told me to leave it in your capable hands.
Within a few days you already had a number of places lined up for me to see and so our journey began. What took me 4 years of searching the market for, you found in just a few months and delivered to us a house we are truly proud to call our home. As I mentioned I wanted to live here first and get to know my home before I wrote to you. And I have done just that and I can now say working side by side with you was one of the best decisions we could have undertaken.
You made our journey from start to finish enjoyable and professional. You helped every step of the way from negotiations to lawyers, appraisals to settlement and everything in between.
Amanda your personality is energetic, fun, loyal, trusting and hard working. I write this letter in the highest recommendation to anyone thinking about working with Amanda as their buyer’s agent. As Amanda says (& I believe she truly means): Amanda is on our side. Thank you so very much.Gloria & GlenRoseville
After living for many years on bushland acres behind Sydney’s northern beaches, we decided it would be wise to move closer to town, amenities and public transport. Knowing it would be a very difficult choice, we decided to use a buyer’s agent and found Amanda on line, probably one of the best choices we’ve ever made.
Amanda immediately impressed by actually visiting us at home to better understand us and our lifestyle. From that and from the details we gave her about what we were looking for, Amanda, after quite a short time, found us a beautifully-designed unit on the water on one of Sydney’s small and interesting bays, full of sunlight during the day and with sparkling city lights at night. It is different from, and much lovelier than anything we had imagined.
The whole process has been a pleasure. Amanda perfectly combines a warm, generous and helpful personal nature with impeccable, intelligent, thorough and capable professional behaviour. At every stage, she had a most friendly and efficient relationship with lawyers and agents, keeping us constantly in touch, by phone and email, with matters as they proceeded. As a result, they proceeded much more speedily and efficiently than would normally be expected, as we found from talking to friends about similar experiences. When necessary, Amanda drove us the rather long distances required, which was much appreciated.
It has been a huge change for us, but with Amanda’s help is has all happened in a remarkably pleasant and friendly way. Thanks to Amanda we are, at our age, living a whole new life we would not have imagined – much to the joy and delight of our family and friends.Judy & HowardDrummoyne
Bec & I are loving our new life on the northern beaches, thanks to you Amanda!!!
We had been looking seriously for about 6 months before deciding to employ Amanda as our ‘buyers agent’. Within 2 months Amanda was able to find us our dream home, closer to the beach than we would have ever imagined. Being time poor & living a long distance away from the areas we were looking made life hard inspecting properties & staying on the front foot with the local market. Having Amanda pre-qualify properties & negotiate the price took all the stress out of buying house, not to mention gave us back our weekends!!! Amanda, I would have no drama referring my family, friends & work colleagues to your wonderful service!!!Jay & BeckyDee Why beach
My fiancé and I were extremely pleased with Amanda’s service as our buyer’s agent. As first homebuyers, we had been looking in the market for a house on the North Shore for months with no success. Properties we were interested in would be snatched up before we’d even had a chance to inspect, or would sell for well over our budget when going to auction. We were hoping that a buyer’s agent would give us an advantage by getting us access to properties we would not have otherwise had, and that’s exactly what Amanda delivered. Through her efforts digging up the best properties suited to our needs, Amanda was able to find the perfect house for sale before it was publicly advertised, allowing us to get in early and get ahead of the crowd. We also felt much more comfortable during the negotiation process by being able to rely on Amanda’s skill and experience, for example when/if to make a pre-auction offer and what price to go in at. This took the emotion out of the process and allowed us to be confident we were making the right choice.
She assisted us throughout the entire purchase process, always followed up our queries quickly, and was always friendly and helpful. We love our new home and would definitely recommend Amanda to anyone we know looking for a great buyer’s agent. Thanks Amanda!Geoff & TeneillePymble
Since the day we signed the paperwork, it has taken only 3 weeks to exchange contracts on our dream home. Whilst prior to engaging Amanda’s services we had almost a year of heartbreak, stress, losing our Saturdays and considerable expenses purchasing reports, reviewing contracts and making offers on properties on our own.
Amanda was absolutely amazing in her attention to detail, listening to our many requests and managing to meet every single one, whilst always being available to respond and keep us updated of developments through our many calls & emails.
Finding a home within our budget and in our dream location was certainly a hard task we put to Amanda, considering the prices that people are paying just so they don’t miss out. We are still both in a sense of shock that it is finally over.
I would recommend Amanda in a heartbeat to anybody looking for a home, she has fabulous contacts and it is extremely useful having someone who used to be a selling agent for one of the big real estate firms. Any prospective buyers that are contemplating this service should not delay to employ Amanda, and you too will be in your new home sooner and more than likely, at a lower cost than you can get, when negotiating on your own.Dan & LaurenDrummoyne
We were looking for a new family home on and off for around three years. We had reached a point where we were sick of constantly competing for homes and continually being drawn into a silent auction process. With two small children it was getting more and more difficult to find the energy to jump on the property search treadmill weekend after weekend – we had property hunting fatigue real bad and needed someone to help us find a place and take the stress out of negotiating with selling agents. Amanda took the time to understand what we wanted and then set to work on the property hunt, even door knocking and letter box dropping suitable homes within the area we were looking to buy. When we found our home, Amanda performed an excellent full appraisal of the property so that we could make an informed decision before making an offer. Amanda took the stress out of the purchase process, just two phone calls from Amanda and she had quickly sealed the deal at a price we were very happy with. Amanda went out of her way to help us and delivered our singed contracts and cheque to selling agent on our behalf, she also helped schedule our pest and building inspection and attended our final inspection. We are very happy with the service we received and couldn’t be happier with our new home, thanks Amanda!Darryl & JoFrenchs Forest
For over six months we were looking on our own for a home in Sydney’s inner west. After several near misses, many disappointments, and a great deal of frustration, we hired Amanda. Two weeks later we were buying a lovely home—indeed, the best home we had yet considered. This was thanks entirely to Amanda and her friendly and professional team. Not only did Amanda find a suitable property for us, she negotiated a deal prior to auction and made sure we were successful, despite our budget constraints. We were delighted by the very reasonable price Amanda managed to negotiate and how smoothly everything went once we had Amanda going in to bat for us. Thanks very much for everything Amanda!Cristina & MarkMarrickville
I was recommended Amanda through a friend and to be honest at first I wasn’t sure and felt like I was committing to a large sum not confident I needed to. I quickly changed my mind and now feel like I couldn’t have bought without her.
Amanda listened. She took me out for a day of viewings to ensure she knew what I was looking for and after this time only informed me of properties she thought I’d be interested in. I quickly realised her knowledge on what to look for and what questions to ask were invaluable.
I was interested in a couple of properties prior to the one I subsequently bought one was sold for way over the valuation price and the other had a few building issues. I seriously considered going ahead with both and on both occasions Amanda advised me not to. This just consolidated the fact that I trusted her.
Finally I viewed the unit I now live in and by this time I was very disheartened feeling this market is just too competitive. I said I liked it but didn’t think too much. Amanda made it happen with minimal effort or stress on my part.
Thank you so much! I completely recommend Amanda and know she worked hard to get me what I wanted and get me something that “felt right” as well as provide the service.GinaMosman
Thank you Amanda! We have just moved in to our new home and still can’t believe our luck. You used your real estate contacts to buy us an amazing home that wasn’t even on the market.
We didn’t think it was possible – in under 2 months you were able to find exactly what we were after and in our chosen location. Throughout the search you were fabulous, always readily contactable and so positive and calm. We also loved that you had a great eye for possible renovations/improvements to the houses we were viewing. You made a difficult and stressful process so much fun! Thanks again.Belinda & JonathanWilloughby
As first time buyers we did not know where to start in the competitive Sydney auction market. Amanda was always available to give advice, often outside of work hours. Anita and Amanda took time to drive us to listings and understand exactly what we were looking for. In the end we bought a property ahead of the auction and at a great price, thanks to Amanda’s connections. Thanks Amanda!MonicaSt Peters
We are happily recommending Amanda to all of our friends looking to buy in the Inner West. I rang several buyers’ agents in my initial search, and Amanda was the ONLY one who listened more than she spoke. She was warm, inquisitive, and wanted to get to know us and our style. We searched in winter so there wasn’t a lot on the market, but Amanda was always positive, and reassured us that the right house would find us. She never pressured us into making a decision, and she took our feedback on board.
When Amanda took us to THE house, she was able to get us in early through her connections. Amanda was the edge we needed to secure this house. Without her, I am sure we would have lost the house that is now our family home. Thanks Amanda!Olivia & IanLeichhardt
We interviewed a number of buyer’s agents before deciding to hire Amanda. As soon as we started telling Amanda what we were looking for in a property she listened and understood immediately. She asked insightful questions and showed us quickly how well she knew the area we were looking to buy and the real estate agents in that area.
Amanda made us feel confident that she would be able to help us. Amanda found our dream house within a couple of weeks! We couldn’t believe it as we had been looking ourselves for 18 months. Amanda has excellent relationships with real estate agents and used these as well as her negotiating skills to secure our house. We are strongly recommending Amanda to our friends who are struggling to buy their dream home and we will continue to do so.Rebecca & JamesRoseville
I decided to move from Canberra to Sydney to be closer to my family…
As I was well and truly retired it was suggested by a member of the family to contact Amanda to research the real estate market and find a cottage in the Inner West that was convenient to family, shops and buses. Amanda found several properties but after a Letter Box drop in my area of choice a home was found in just the right location and negotiations were carried out between the Vendor and Amanda on my behalf. All this was undertaken with efficiency and professionalism. I would not have been able manage to find a home being in Canberra, without Amanda’s experience and skills… Amanda also organized a Building Inspection and a Solicitor to carry out the Conveyancing. With up to 4 properties in the family being found by Amanda we would not go anywhere else.RosMarrickville
As first home buyers the property market is an intimidating place to be. Between losing weekends driving between open houses and having to compete with investors and experienced buyers we spent months making little headway. Then along came Amanda to the rescue… Her energy and enthusiasm for finding us a home was truly amazing. All of a sudden we were at the front of the queue, with a shortlist of properties that we could not seem to find on our own. Importantly Amanda took the time to listen and understand what we needed, and this was evident in the quality of properties that she shortlisted for us. I can safely say that without Amanda we would not own our dream home. Thank you Amanda, you are amazing!!Ross & SindyPetersham
Amanda made life easy. What could have been a chore became a thoroughly enjoyable and most importantly fruitful search. Amanda’s knowledge of the local real estate market, her understanding of what we were after and her patient, easy going but ultimately professional style made for a great working relationship. We could not have been happier.James & KristinaBirchgrove
Although we were happy in our house in Glebe, my husband and I wanted something better. For years, we looked without finding a house which would “make our hearts sing”. Then we met Amanda. At our first meeting, we were impressed with her knowledge of the real estate market and her network of real estate agents, and decided to engage her services. She was quick to respond to our criteria for “something better” and presented us with a list of houses on the market. Over the next few months, in spite of being disrupted by our frequent trips overseas for work, she remained cheerful and optimistic, and finally successfully steered us to a beautiful 4-bedroom house in Rozelle with a stunning view. With her help, we were able to purchase this house and are now poised to move in. I would certainly not hesitate to recommend Amanda to anyone who is looking for a property.Miyako & LivingstonRozelle
For over a year, we had researched buying a property in Sydney’s Inner West but prospective properties constantly seemed to be selling for more than we anticipated.
With the arrival of a new baby, the pressure to secure a new home increased.
Deciding to use Amanda as our buyer’s agent was the best decision we made. Initially, we met with Amanda to evaluate and fine-tune our requirements – what exactly we were hoping to purchase and just as importantly, what we didn’t need or desire in a new home.
Shortly after our first meeting, Amanda compiled a comprehensive list of available homes to view. Some were already on market, but importantly, several were off market for a number of reasons e.g. vendors hoping to sell quickly or perhaps avoid the process of preparing their homes for viewings. Amanda’s ability to source such off market properties via her network meant we were able to find our home within three weeks!
Throughout the process, Amanda was realistic, honest and constantly keeping us informed. She helped us maintain a focus on our requirements that meant we were able to decide quickly and with certainty when the right property became available. Amanda provided evaluations of any properties being considered and even drove around with us for an afternoon to view a number of properties.
We have since recommended Amanda to several friends and won’t hesitate using her services when we purchase our next property!Jason & SarahLeichhardt
