We were initially sceptical about the use of the services of a Buyers’ Agent, mostly due to the cost and concerns that they may not understand exactly what we are looking for (as we were not looking for a ‘traditional’ family home). We were finally convinced by some friends to at least meet Oliver and Henny on the premise that they have saved our friends time in searching for a property as well as costs in final negotiations and/or auction process.
We were immediately aware of Oliver and Henny’s vast level of knowledge in the property space, in particular compared to our knowledge. We commissioned them to support us in our purchase, and they far exceeded any expectations we had. Yes, sure we saved a lot of time and money as per our friends’ recommendations. But we got so much more. …
For example, we knew exactly what each property we were interested in was worth, which avoided the obvious mistake of overpaying in an overly competitive Eastern Suburbs market. We also learnt so much about building conditions that we were able to make informed decisions about our purchase in every sense. We knew the exact positives and negatives of every property, as well as significant detail in the amount of work which will need to be done depending on our requirements. Ultimately, when we finally bid on a property, we were very confident that it was the perfect decision for us.
Watching Oliver strategize throughout the process was like watching a beautiful piece of art – he made so many moves which ultimately resulted in significant savings for us, not to mention a very smooth and relaxed process. I did not ever imagine that buying a property in the market that we just did could be so easy!
Accompanying all this incredible knowledge was customer service at its very best – Oliver is a tremendous person who is so lovely, professional and calm at all times and especially under pressure. He was always available via whichever means we needed. He attended to every single question, request, email and phone call with razor sharp speed and focus. He provided education and knowledge transfer throughout the whole process. And he did all of this with a lovely and extremely professional mannerism.
Would we recommend OH Property? Absolutely – we are delighted with our decision to hire them and feel very lucky to have done so.
