Colin Roberts Director/Licensee is proud to offer clients new and old extra marketing and service from our newest office in Bulli. Formerly known as Dougmal Harcourts Northern Suburbs, we have now re-branded to an exciting new name—Harcourts Northern Beaches which is currently situated at the Old Ambulance Station across from Bulli Workers Club.
Now that our office is bigger than ever since Dougmal Harcourts Woonona and Corrimal office have merged into one , Harcourts Northern Suburbs have been very dominate within the Northern Suburbs region becoming one of the Top 3 agencies of listing and selling residential properties.
Our success over the past 46 years is attributed to our group of highly experienced, dedicated and
enthusiastic professionals which includes strong sales, property management, administration and strata team.
Our team is made up of some of the industry’s best, local, loyal and professional personnel who you will have the pleasure to meet. The entire team pride themselves on their local knowledge, experience,
customer service and professionalism.
Previous sales and enquiries within the Corrimal area indicate that properties listed in the current market are lasting 1-2 weeks. The Northern Suburbs of Wollongong are experiencing a “high demand” of property due to the lifestyle it offers as well as local purchasers seeking to enter the market. Furthermore, it has been widely recognised that there is an increase in Sydney purchasers entering the Northern Wollongong Market due to the close proximity to of the Northern Suburbs and Sydney as well as the ever increasing Sydney market.
In relation to a proposed selling strategy of any property in this market we are finding that “Offers above $.......” and the auction process is having great success and in many cases exceeding vendor’s expectations. I am a firm believer that the most appropriate strategy to sell a property is in fact the strategy which the vendor feels most comfortable with. It would be a privilege to discuss each selling method with you to see which one is best suited to your priorities in selling the property. ie: pricing, time frames and privacy.
Without having the opportunity to enter your property I can only provide a general appraisal based on a Comparable Market Analysis. This includes properties recently sold in your area and properties currently on the market.
I can indicate that through my previous sales within the Russel Vale area and surrounding areas I am currently working exclusively with Registered Buyers who are seeking properties within the Russel Vale area. These purchasers are finance approved and have been actively seeking the market for some time.
In respect to marketing the property I believe that it is imperative to present the property in the best possible manner. This includes the use of a professional photographer who uses colour floor plans and interactive videos. I will work with you as the vendor to suggest which area of the house has the most ‘saleability factor’ to a potential purchaser.
Part of the marketing campaign includes a colour sign board placed outside your property with my contact details so people out of the area who see your property can contact me direct 24/7. This sign board would also display 3 full colour photos of the property.
In addition to this, Harcourts Northern Beaches believe it is essential to hand deliver 1000 professionally designed and printed brochures to your immediate area, notifying the residents that the property is currently for sale. Experience shows this is successful when a resident is seeking a nearby property for their friends, children or elderly parents.
With respect to inspecting the property, I like to work closely with the vendors in this respect to identify the most suited level of inspection. Obviously, “Open Houses” are highly successful in allowing potential purchasers to inspect the property; however, private inspections are also popular. Traditionally I operate “Open Houses” on a Saturday morning and can also do mid week open houses in the evening to capture all the potential purchasers. Prior to every inspection, I confirm this with the vendor and provide immediate feedback in respect to the same,
Steve did a great job and worked hard to secure the sale.

I had 3 agents before Steve. They all promised me $500,000 but none of them could deliver. Steve didnt promise me he just told me what its worth in this market. He got a offer of $520,000 within 3 weeks of being on the market.
