Stephanie’s stellar winter, $12.5m of local sales

Thursday 26 Jul 2018

While most agents fear the winter months as it is traditionally a quieter market, Stephanie Hearne approached the middle of the year with all guns blazing.

Having been in the industry for over 16 years, she has seen numerous hot and cold winter real estate markets and knows what it takes to attract buyers and negotiate exceptional results. In early June, Stephanie sold 23 Earl St, Roseville at auction – a character home on 929sqm with 4 bedrooms, lots of potential and a huge private garden, perfect for the young family from Stanmore who purchased the property. With seven registered bidders, the home was hotly contested.

Later in June, after a strong marketing campaign Stephanie sold 69 Babbage Road, Roseville Chase at auction for $1,778,000. The delighted vendors are downsizing to a stunning new development in Castle Cove. There was heated bidding throughout the auction with four registered bidders, two of whom bid strongly to secure this private sanctuary with sweeping valley views.

At another competitive auction, Stephanie sold 41 Owen St, East Lindfield in the mid $3,000,000 range. This stunning family home exceeded expectations with its spacious modern design and stylish interiors. Its versatile floor plan of expansive living areas and effortless al fresco entertaining with sun-drenched pool offered the perfect package for families of all ages. The buyers were a family moving into the area to be close to good schools.

Vendor of this property Garry commented on Stephanie’s energy and excellent market knowledge.

“Stephanie Hearne successfully sold our home at auction in what turned out to be a very tough market, made worse by daily commentary in the press. Her experience, boundless energy and deep market knowledge were critical to achieving the sale at auction. We found her advice to be perceptive, her communication well pitched and her friendly manner comforting throughout the whole process.”

In July, 85 Tyneside Avenue, Willoughby, a 2 bedroom, 1920’s character home with exciting potential was snapped by a young family from Coogee prior to auction for an undisclosed sum. Offered for the first time in 25 years, it presented an outstanding opportunity to either renovate over time or build a new family home.

Charlotte, the buyer of this property commented on the impeccable service provided.

“We purchased our house recently from Stephanie and had a very positive experience, which was a big difference from most other vendor agents we were dealing with! She was gave us honest, straightforward information which left us able to make an informed offer and (after further negotiation on behalf of the vendor) to secure the property before auction to the benefit of all parties. Her manner is friendly and approachable. We can highly recommend working with Stephanie.”

A lovely family package at 44 Park Avenue, Roseville was sold by Stephanie for $3,100,000 before auction in July. This beautiful 5 bedroom home is enviably positioned in a tightly-held east-side enclave of Roseville with multiple stylish living areas. Set on 1,040sqm, the buyers were attracted to its size, location and charming period details.
