After an extended property search, my partner and I found a lovely house in Flemington that ticked all of the boxes. The quoted range was within our budget, but we felt strongly that if it went to auction there was a high chance we would be outbid. Our best chance was to convince the vendor to sell before auction, but we knew that it would be very difficult to convince the agent to do so. We contacted Michael on the recommendation of a family friend; and brought him on to help us devise a strategy and handle the negotiations. Through Michael’s knowledge of the market, existing relationship with the agent, and expert negotiating skill, we were ultimately successful and are now living happily in the perfect home, purchased at a great price. Throughout the process Michael was incredibly helpful, providing great advice and going out of his way fit in-person meetings around our busy work schedules. We’re absolutely certain that we wouldn’t be living in our new home without Michael’s help, and we’d thoroughly recommend his services.
