We have been working in the Newtown area for a combined total of 58 years and there is no other agent of agency more experienced or more knowledgeable about the local market.)
Marketing Plan
We recommend a sale made by public auction, the benefits include:-

No price marketing
Sets an end date
It is a transparent process
Creates competition
You can sell prior to, on the day or post auction
The vendor sets the reserve price

With a property such as yours I would suggest an online 4 week auction marketing campaign, I can provide the specifics of the campaign upon further discussions.

At Raine & Horne Newtown our close relationships with editors from various media outlets including The Sydney Morning Herald, The Inner West Courier, The Central Newspaper and Sky business News Channel 602 enable us to increase our vendors property's exposure through high quality editorial from expert commentators.

Many of our exceptional sale prices have been achieved with competition created through buyers being introduced to our vendors properties through this unique value added advantage that Raine & Horne Newtown offers!

Whilst there is no guarantee of achieving editorial we do guarantee that we will do everything we can to ensure that your property is on the big stage for the world to see.)

Well Done Michael
We used Michael as, earlier in the year, he had sold our daughters' townhouse in Newtown and they were pleased with the service of the whole team at Raine & Horne, Newtown and with the result. As we were based in Canberra, we needed an agent who could fit in with our times and take on some of the logistics that come from selling a property when you aren't nearby. Michael & his team put in this extra effort and everything went smoothly. We felt Michael's strongest point was the regular communication he maintained with us - usually by phone. If he said he'd ring that afternoon, he did - and there was never any need for us to chase him. He explained all the issues carefully and demonstrated not only a knowledge of the market but of human behavior. His market assessment of price was realistic and, in the end, he negotiated a better price.
We were very pleased. Congratulations, Michael & team.

Michael Harris Recommendation
We engaged Michael to sell our apartment and would definitely recommend him to others. With the help of his assistant Melissa they organised all the quotes and tradesmen for our refurbishments with a quick turnaround before going on the market. Michael provided us with an informative weekly report while on the market and guided us through the auction proceedings as this was our first time.

Michael Harris was an excellent lead agent with an efficient, friendly team around him
Michael and his team were extremely competent, knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. We were advised of the outcome and prospects very promptly from each open house. Michael was quietly confident and clearly knew his stuff. He always worked to achieve at least our reserve which we stated before even signing up for the campaign. The coordination of work necessary to prepare the unit for sale was extraordinarily efficient. The trades people used were competent and did their respective tasks in a very timely manner. The result was outstanding at $100,000 above our expectation. Would definitely use the team again if selling another property.
