Michael's attention to detail, experience and affable nature make him the 'complete package'.
His ability to work with people and develop relationships of genuine trust with both vendors and purchasers has earned him resounding endorsements from all those who have come into contact with him. The substantial repeat and referral proportion of his business reflect the satisfaction of many whose expectations for service, performance and results were not only met, but exceeded.
We can examine a variety of marketing options and methods of sale to ensure we achieve the absolute premium (best) price the market will pay.
An effective marketing campaign climaxing in auction, for instance, may well achieve more, simply through the competition and consequent emotional urgency generated among the buyers attracted to the property. Be assured, if you prefer one method of sale rather than another, the property can be marketed accordingly. Alternatively, when vendors would prefer discretion, we are well versed and efficient in connecting people to property without marketing. In fact, over 20% of our sales over the last 12 months have been made "off market" through our extensive, active database of qualified buyers.
More than any other agency, LOCATION Real Estate Sales & Consulting offers a truly personalised, ‘specific to each property’ tailored approach for each vendor in relation to marketing, which can be discussed in detail at our meeting.
An effective marketing campaign could add thousands, tens of thousands or in some cases, hundreds of thousands of dollars to the ultimate sale price of a property. It is the means by which we can locate, attract and capture the attention of the ‘right buyers’ for your property. It can create real desire among these buyers and a perception that, against its competition (other properties) in the marketplace, it is of superior value and potentially worth more.
Top quality professional graphic design, copy, photography and video form the basis of our marketing. Your property will be showcased with priority (elevated ‘Premiere’ & Premium Plus' package status) to buyers locally, nationally and internationally on a wide range of internet property websites (www.realestate.com.au; www.domain.com.au; www.locationre.com.au; www.homely.com.au; www.homehound.com.au; www.millionplus.com.au; www.myfun.com; au.fang.com; www.thehomepage.com.au). Print media advertising in the Sutherland Shire Leader Domain at the lowest weekly rates available is a popular option to add to exposure locally, in addition to photo-signboards and quality property brochures. In addition, LOCATION provides superior exposure for all property listings via high definition video screens from our street front window (Shop 10, 350 Kingsway, Caringbah). We use the best systems and technology available.
Regular verbal and written update reports throughout the sales process are crucial to a successful outcome. My commitment to you is to constantly provide timely detailed feedback which will ensure any and all decisions you make are prudent and fully informed.
I first came in contact with Michael Larkings in 2014 via telephone conversations during the campaign to sell my marital home in the Sutherland Shire. What would have been a very difficult time was made so much easier through Michael's thoughtfulness and genuine caring qualities.

In September I decided to sell my unit – remembering my phone conversations with Michael back in 2014, I had no hesitation calling him. When I did, I was even more pleased to learn he now had his own agency, LOCATION Real Estate Sales & Consulting.
I finally got to meet Michael and his lovely wife, Sam. I have to say, it felt like we had known each other for years. He was as pleasant, caring and just as thoughtful as he was when I was dealing with him in 2014 via phone calls. He truly is a gentleman and has unquestionable integrity, something that is difficult to find in many people, let alone real estate agents.
He set a campaign for the sale of the unit that was quite short and for some that may have been
We met Michael when we were looking to buy a house and got to know him over a 6 month period before utilising his knowledge and experience to make a purchase. He was very approachable and we learnt to trust him through this process as he provided expert advice on areas we were looking, as well as guidance on making offers which is always very stressful.

After our purchase, we had no hesitation in appointing Michael as our selling agent as we had learnt how easy he was to deal with, trustworthy and always contactable. It was a pleasure to be always able to speak to the person selling our place directly, or via email as necessary. We also got to know his wife Sam during the process as she assisted in the sale. Both Michael and Sam always acted with professionalism at every open house and we received lovely feedback from our neighbours who also got to know them during the campaign.
We were extremely pleased with the result of our sales campaign.
The marketing strategy worked very well
