Our tough negotiating skills have saved our clients thousands, so let us do the same for you.


The northern beaches has a distinctly laid back feel to it. It is all about the life style with great surfing beaches such as Collaroy, Long Reef, Curl Curl, Narrabeen and Freshwater. Even though the northern beaches has a more relaxed feel than Bondi, there are similarities between the two communities. In fact, a lot of young Bondi families are buying family homes in the northern beaches. This is because the two suburbs share a similar lifestyle, however the northern beaches property market is more affordable.


Un-renovated freestanding homes in our recommended suburbs can still be purchased in the low-mid $1m’s although prices are considerably higher for renovated homes and homes with water views. There is a property to suit every budget on the northern beaches. Some of the suburbs that we particularly like are: Manly, Queenscliff, Freshwater, Brookvale, Curl Curl, Collaroy and Narrabeen.


Northern Beaches Property Buyer Profile:

Type of Property: House

Type of Purchaser: Downsizers – Primary Residence

Address: Collaroy Plateau

We recently purchased a terrific free standing house on a quiet street in Collaroy Plateau for downsizers. Having sold their home, they were concerned about finding something suitable within their budget in a short time frame. They didn’t want to rent and waste money as well as moving twice so they retained us to find their dream northern beaches home. And we secured it for them within two months. We quickly identified the key attributes they needed and then found suitable properties. From there we narrowed the search down to the two best properties. With one property clearly the winner, we successfully negotiated the purchase of this home quickly and efficiently beating out other buyers by securing it prior to auction and within budget.



Northern Beaches Property Buyer Profile:

Type of Property: Apartment

Type of Purchaser: Primary Residence

Address: 18/51 Pittwater Rd, Manly

Property Story:

We recently purchased a Manly apartment for a happy buyer who was looking for two years before engaging our services. Our client specifically wanted to live in Manly because of its wonderful lifestyle and cafe culture. However as he had a limited budget and as Manly apartments sell very quickly, he consistently missed out on properties. Within three months we secured his new Manly home within his budget for less than another buyer was prepared to pay.


Northern Beaches Property Buyer Profile:

Type of Property: Apartment

Type of Purchaser: Investment Property

Address: 3/2 Wetherill St, Narrabeen

We also recently purchased a Narrabeen apartment for an Australian expat property buyer. Firstly we identified desirable suburbs that are attractive to renters, provide good capital growth and that have a reasonable buy-in price. Once we had our short list of suburbs we then narrowed in on individual properties. From here we identified a terrific large one bedroom Narrabeen apartment with secure parking in a quality pet-friendly building. We negotiated the purchase of the property quickly and efficiently for considerably below the asking price.

However buying northern beaches property is not without its pitfalls. We avoid suburbs where there is a glut of new apartments being built. Not only are buyers paying a premium for these new properties, but when the buildings are completed it will be very competitive to rent them. In addition, we avoid property located on the main artery / road where possible, unless it is a unique, quiet property or you are facing the ocean. And if you’re looking out on to the ocean – enough said!


7 Reasons We Think Northern Beaches Property is a Good Investment:


  • PRICE: Lower buy-in purchase price than other lifestyle suburbs and strong rental yields (we are finding gross rental yields of around 4%)
  • BUILDING – New Northern Beaches Hospital being built in Frenchs Forest (scheduled completion 2018) which creates demand for rental properties and brings more people into the area
  • TRANSPORTATION: New express B-Line Buses that go from Mona Vale to the Sydney CBD with only 9 stops
  • LIFESTYLE: Continued strong buyer and renter demand due to desirable beach lifestyle. New young family buyers moving to the area. Improved amenities strengthen the appeal.
  • CULTURE: Merivale has bought The Collaroy Hotel and is renovating it. This will no doubt turn into a northern beaches hot spot with great food and ambience.
  • REINVIGORATION: Beautiful renovation of Westfield Warringah Mall making it a northern beaches destination and providing amenities to locals.
  • BLUE SKY: Potential building of the Northern Beaches Tunnel. If this happens northern beaches property prices will skyrocket.
