“My husband and I were keen to find a family home in Sydney having been away from Australia for nearly 16 years and still living in London. What first impressed us about Bernadette was her ability to assimilate our sometimes garbled and inconsistent needs and desires. She asked all the right questions and patiently listened to our feedback, honing her understanding of what we were looking for. When Bernadette started sending us information on houses it was quite obvious that she really understood our combined and respective interests. Finding our perfect family home definitely felt like a partnership with Bernadette and not like working with some kind of third party service provider. We always felt that our interests were at the heart of all Bernadette’s efforts.
Bernadette was always incredibly professional and seemed to get the flow and speed of information just right. Bernadette was always very responsive, which for both my husband and I, was critical. In this line of work being personable and emotionally intelligent is incredibly important and Bernadette hit the mark on both counts. She was a pleasure to spend time with, either in a car speeding around Sydney or on the phone, and one could see that she also had an easy rapport with the all important brokers and agents. There is much nuance to finding and buying a house in Sydney, it is not always straightforward and simple, yet Bernadette was able to navigate comfortably around the convoluted politics and deep rooted relationships that for some might have represented significant roadblocks.
With so much at stake for us, it was of the utmost importance that both my husband and I respected and trusted our home finder and with Bernadette this was par for the course. She was discreet, professional, incredibly well organised and very thorough. We never felt that we were missing out on anything. We always felt confident that Bernadette had it all covered.
We can’t recommend Bernadette enough, particularly if like us, you are living abroad or new to the market. She makes finding a new home, fun and exciting given her boundless enthusiasm and sunny disposition, which she marries so nicely with her business acumen and in depth knowledge of the market. She was an absolute pleasure to work with.”
