Tale of the Sale

The property: 50 Premier Street, Neutral Bay.

Length of ownership: 14 years.

Our client’s story:

As soon as we walked into the front yard of this property, we knew that it was for us! It had a level garden and no stairs! The selling point for us was the oversized peaceful garden and all the trees surrounding the property. 

For a young family, it was perfectly located to local libraries, schools and parks. As a city worker, my husband was able to get into the city easily by bus, ferry or even drive as it is only two sets of traffic lights away from the city. 

I will miss being able to walk to a restaurant at short notice or the shops if I run short of something in the house.  We are close to ferries and the local beach. We also love being able to walk down to Kirribilli, across the bridge and into the city.

Some of our neighbours have been living here for decades, attended the local school, same with their kids and their grandchildren! We have heard stories of what it was like to live here during the war and how kids used to play cricket in the street in the old days!

What our client had to say about us:

Simon and Rebecca’s broad life experience transferred really well into the real estate market. They have a wealth of experience in selling and communicating with people. Through many conversations about the ‘crazy’ Sydney market, we noticed how passionate they both were about real estate and do genuinely care about the people involved during the process of selling a home. It is a highly sensitive and stressful time for both the seller and the buyer and they were able to bring a confident and positive perspective to us. Simon kicked into action with military precision once we gave him the go-ahead to sell our house. We had a tight timeframe to get the house polished up and on the market. I was very impressed with his ability to coordinate all the extras that go with selling a house.

The marketing campaign was smooth and efficient and we loved the ‘attention capturing’ video which clearly and succinctly outlined the unique benefits of our home. Simon was able to capture what we loved about living in this house which I think is very important for prospective buyers. People want to know what they are buying as it’s not just a house it’s a home! Additionally, Scott Partridge and Luke Whitelum, part of the team at Metcalfe Real Estate, provided us with the benefit of their decades of industry experience. We were pleased with the result of a street house record in Premier Street. We would have no hesitation in recommending the team at Metcalfe Real Estate.
