Buyer’s Scenario

Our clients were busy professionals who were referred to us by a previous client. They had recently missed out a number of properties in the market and were feeling frustrated with the buying process. The properties they were interested in seemed to be selling as soon as they hit the market or were being significantly outbid at auction.

This couple engaged us help them locate and secure a home they could grow into, in a catchment with good schools, close to work and space for their beloved family dog.


Buyers Agent’s Solution

After showing a number of off and on market properties, our clients quickly decided this was their favourite. We immediately began negotiations with a pre-auction strategy and secured their home before the 2nd weekend inspections brought in further keen bidders. We avoided an emotional bidding war on auction day, against other competitive buyers which can often lead to over paying.


Buyer’s Comments

"Frank Russo was recommended to us by a friend who bought their property through him, but initially we weren't convinced of the value in using a buyer's agent.

After spending the next month navigating the shark infested Sydney house market watching properties go for well above the quoted prices we met Frank for a coffee. Still we ummed and ahhhed, but thankfully decided to go ahead.

Roughly four weeks later we secured a beautiful family home that on initial inspection we loved, but thought would be well outside our budget.

The fact that we were successful was solely due to Frank's expertise and strategic knowledge of the activity in the suburb, his relationship with the selling agent and the timing of our offer.

I firmly believe that without him in our corner the property would have gone for $150-200k more than we paid - money which we simply didn't have.

Frank the Tank is the secret weapon every Sydney home buyer needs, we couldn't recommend him more highly."
