Meredith O’Reilly saved my sanity!
Having made the decision to purchase an investment property, a new job and the general pressures of life meant an occasional look at the real estate pages on a Saturday morning was all I had done and six months after setting up my self-managed super fund I was earning nothing but bank interest.
I was delighted when I heard I could actually hire someone to assist me with the project, better still when I discovered it was Meredith. I was in Seoul working when I made initial contact, with in three weeks we had settled on a property. I doubt she could have worked much faster or harder.
Meredith provided my with a good range of options and viewed several apartments for us, saving me endless hours of trying to work out how I could get to view properties and find the time to discuss details with agents. She understood exactly what we wanted and we did not waste any time on anything that wasn’t in our brief. Her follow through on detail was extraordinary, including guiding us away from a property, which looked great, but proved to have a number of strata issues which could have been disastrous. Even while we were coming to the conclusion to walk away from one sale Meredith had found us more alternatives and then successfully negotiated a great deal on the ideal place.
Within 19 days of my initial contact I was sipping champagne celebrating our purchase.
Fast, Furious and Fabulous! Meredith made it so easy I’m trying to work out how to find the funds to buy another.
I am more than happy to recommend Meredith to anyone who wants to buy property.Kerry Comerford
I retained Meredith as my buyers agent during the recent heated property market. She was a godsend! She would visit properties first and filter out the bad ones and she would take photos of the possibles for me to look at prior to inspection. When we inspected together she would point out things that I may have missed and she had a comprehensive checklist of things to look for.
Meredith was a calming influence when I got frantic and was both positive and level headed when I may not have been. Her building inspector and solicitor were the best, and for me everything just happened without me needing to worry about what I may have forgotten.
And we found a place, and I bought it, and I’m as happy as can be.Richard Grevis
Meredith made it possible.
Your service has been amazing, invaluable and much appreciated with the purchase of my first investment property!Blaise Bratter, May 2014
I look forward to working with you again in the future, as I intend to make a second buy shortly. ”
“I must thank you especially as throughout all of this you have been fantastic.”Kathleen Kavanagh, September 2014
“It was certainly a long road to find this house, but Claire and I are really happy with the outcome…I was certainly glad to have you in our corner when it came to a race to exchange, I think we wouldn’t have had much of a chance without you to guide us through it. Also really valued having you around to bounce questions off, this being our first home purchase and all – certainly made us both more comfortable with the whole process.”Charles and Claire Blaxland, November 2014
In a short period of 2 months, Meredith has successfully found a property for my son and his young family, who are living temporarily overseas. I congratulate her on this considerable achievement and the taxing physical and mental work involved to bring this about.
Each Wednesday and often Saturday, she would follow her pre-planned schedule and drive me around to view as many properties as the limited viewing time slots would allow. With her GPS and a cheery smile, we would be off for several hours, like old friends! My son set many criteria as to what he wanted and we viewed many properties that ticked most of the boxes. Indeed , by seeing some properties that did not meet my exacting standards in some respects or other, and listening to Meredith’s wise observations built on her years of experience in real estate,, I was able to develop a keen sense of comparison as to what was and what was not value for money.
Her bidding techniques were controlled by knowledge of the current market rather than emotional response, for which I respect her. Once we had decided on the property, she moved forward quickly and positively, setting in line a chain of processes that facilitated and expedited the transaction, so that the Exchange of Contracts was final and irrevocable. We had confidence in her because she had confidence in her negotiations and professional contacts.
I would not hesitate in recommending Meredith to whosoever was seeking a property. It has saved me much time and when it comes to the need to search for a property for myself, I will seek her out again.Helen Liem, December 2014
As a first home buyer, I didn’t imagine the services of a buyers agent were warranted.
After months of looking on my own, and missing out on a number of properties, I finally engaged Meredith of Homefinder Sydney. In such a competitive market, a buyers agent made the difference. Meredith was on my side from day one. She offered genuine, professional and personal service to ensure I got the property I really wanted for the right price. Her guidance and advice was invaluable and I’m thrilled with my first home purchase. My auction was very fiercely fought & her confident bidding really paid off. A buyers agent in this market is essential, and I can’t recommend Meredith at Homefinder Sydney highly enough!Kirsten McLeod
