“Initially we leased out the home to tenants via a local agent and during this time a friend told me about the great experience they were having with their agent, Etch Real Estate.”
When it came time to move out of our family home of 18 years in Seaforth, it was a decision we did not take lightly. We adored the home and were only going to move out when we found something more suited to our lifestyle.
Initially we leased out the home to tenants via a local agent and during this time a friend told me about the great experience they were having with their agent, Etch Real Estate. They explained how Hugo and Lu of Etch were relentless and tireless with their approach to their property management and their involvement in Seaforth with their high end sales. An introduction and meeting was organised and the rest, as they say, is history.
“It was Etch that would be awarded the business with our utmost confidence.”
Several years of positive property management later, my time with Etch was nothing less than smooth and rewarding. With my travel overseas increasing Etch gave me comfort with their communication, ability to service the tenant and accuracy with which they maintained my property. When we eventually made the decision to sell, while we considered all the selling agents at the top of their game, it was Etch that would be awarded the business with our utmost confidence.
Leading up to the sale I met with Etch Real Estate to discuss timing and build up. We chose a two-prong approach which involved some off-market activity and a strong monitoring of the market to consider a public launch at the optimum time.
Off market was not an approach I had considered but Etch assured me that the “real world learnings” from this approach where truly valuable and worth the effort. From the highly selective approach of showing buyers through, Etch was able to receive pertinent feedback, and apply those learnings to the process ahead. They drew out offers and as the market started to shift in our favour, as a team we were all confident with values, strengths and weaknesses of the offering and were able to take advantage of recent successes from Etch Real Estate and the benefiting market sentiment.
From the launch Etch executed with precision. The marketing approach, Open House approach and negotiation approach made my wife and I feel comfortable we were getting expert guidance and leading-edge sales techniques. Hugo and Lu were exceptional with their communication and in ensuring we felt empowered and in-charge of the final decision. Negotiations were intensely fun with Hugo actually negotiating through the night to take advantage of my waking hours (in Europe) and performed the Exchange at midnight on a Friday night.
“I would not hesitate in recommending Etch Real Estate to anyone looking to sell.”
I would not hesitate in recommending Etch Real Estate to anyone looking to sell. Hugo and Lu are exceptional with their sales strategies and vendor management, they work tirelessly to bring great results and I can see why more and more vendors form Seaforth to Clontarf are turning to Etch Real Estate for exceptional results.
