“We got our dream home”
Property Wizards not only found Narelle Morrison & Louise Jackson their dream home, but improved their commute and lifestyle.
“We are so happy living in our dream home – the ambience is absolutely perfect. I have left the rat race and secured a job 10 minutes down the road, which I get to on my scooter. Louise and I are ecstatic that our dreams have come true. The best part of all is that since we purchased our property its value has significantly increased. Not bad, considering we made money while living our dream! We are looking forward to working with Property Wizards again come to buy an investment property.”
We were living in Rivervale, near the city, in a 3×1 on two busy streets. It wasn’t our ideal living situation – too much hustle and bustle, and there was nowhere to go to really chill out. My dream was to live where I was raised – in the hills east of the city. After living here for a few years, we ended up with some really undesirable tenants next door – this was the straw that broke the camel’s back. It was time to move. We wanted to find our dream home where we could settle forever – a place we could grow old together.
Having been through the house hunting process before, I have found it a stressful, emotional ride. There had to be a better way. Then I remembered Trevor.
I had met Trevor when I was a trainer for mortgage brokers. After seeing one of his presentations, I was impressed with his knowledge and professionalism, and his property buying processes.
I contacted Trevor and he came to our house and sat with us for half a day to talk about what we wanted – as individuals and as a couple – to make sure the property would be a dream home for both of us. He put so much time and effort into something that was important to us – this made us feel really good about working with him. He coached us through the process, when doing the inspection, and about how to keep our cards close to our chest. We learnt how to be the perfect inspectors!
Property Wizards’ processes and systems saved us from potentially buying a dud property that might’ve looked good on the surface, but had issues we wouldn’t’ve known about. We found our dream home, but it was under offer. As that offer fell through, we checked it out and fell in love with it – both of us. It was so perfect – nestled on the side of a hill, with city views, and a lovely verandah, perfect for lazy afternoons and entertaining friends.
It was priced slightly above our budget. Property Wizards worked within our budget and used all factors to negotiate a price, particularly as the owners were living overseas. We purchased it for $30,000 below the asking price, and within our budget.w
