I recently employed the services of Fred Haggar, Principal of Property Search 4U to assist in the search for my new home.
Over the course of 2.5 months he stopped me buying the wrong home, he attended auctions on my behalf, he slowed me down with questions like “Kylie, can you see yourself living in this home for the next 10 years” and when I emailed him about a factory I thought I could live in (desperation was in the air) there was no response.
More importantly when I found the right home, he was there instantly to do the deal, a deal he did so well, I had exchanged unconditionally 2 days later, to settle in 3 weeks, for a price well within my budget, even after paying for his very reasonable fee and in a market that had moved 5% since I started looking.
Fred has been a buyer’s agent for 15 years and has been through all the ups and downs, different cycles of the property market that Australia has experienced. His approach to everything is intelligent, methodical, precise and grounded and I really needed that when I was buying my home, in a new area and by myself.
