The Process

Auction / Private Sale / Expression of Interest


Our office has some of the best performers in at Auction. We highly recommend this method of sale to sellers looking to maximise their property’s potential. Quick method sale + Buyer Competition = Achieving a premium price

Private Sale

A direct method of sale, where you can advertise your desired price. We recommend this method for vendors who need time to consider offers and want to negotiate their terms with our buyers. This campaign gives the agent an opportunity to qualify buyers and obtain suitable offers. It represents the ability of our agents to negotiate using their selling skills and knowledge of today’s real-estate market.

Expression of Interest

We recommend this method of sale if you are wanting to test the market. The advertising is tailored according to the property. This involves local newspaper media, international and Australian online advertising to attract foreign investors or buyers. Our agents will advise you if this is a suitable for current situation.
