A lovely family came to us desperate to get into Redhead, They wanted to be close to the beach as they had young children and he was a surfer.
They were struggling to get into the market and were finding it challenging dealing with some agents.
We were able to identify the most suitable streets for their needs. They work from home and some parts of Redhead lack adequate phone and internet reception.
We purchased this great home, under budget, in a great location, across from bush and moments to the beach.
Disclaimer: For the current valuation, we used Corelogic Intellival Automated Valuation estimated price.
