Negotiating at the Pointy End

Rosa had loved living in this stunning Art Deco gem, now it was time for her next move to the beaches.

With it being a unique one bedroom apartment, I knew we had to make sure everything possible was done to attract and engage buyers. Through strong communication and also negotiating at the pointy end with one buyer, a fantastic result was achieved.

It’s what they say that counts

“I really like Shabina. Aside from being absolutely lovely to work with, she is professional and honest.

Shabina is highly engaged with every aspect of the sale. She gives excellent advice as to decor. Her communication is excellent and the updates she provided me throughout the process far exceeded my expectations. She was also very willing to meet potential purchasers outside the specified inspection times (as a prospective purchaser I know that not all agents do this). She is transparent with both the vendor and potential purchasers.

Shabina takes personal responsibility for the sale – she doesn’t palm you, or potential purchasers, off to an assistant. This was important to me and one of the reasons I selected Shabina. I wanted confidence that the real estate agent I met would be the person handling my sale.

It was also important to me to engage an agent who could effectively negotiate a private sale. My property was a one bedroom apartment with no carpark so it only ever had a limited market. In the end there was only serious interest from one couple. Shabina effectively negotiated with them until they raised their price to a level that I was prepared to accept. Her capacity to negotiate effectively in these circumstances was critical to the sale proceeding.

I would use Shabina for future sales and would recommend her to my friends and family.”
