The Opportunity

Property Summary:  This renovated weatherboard semi is a Balmain classic. Full of natural light with a modern feel, it’s an easy-care residence with nothing to spend. Split-level living, with polished timber boards throughout and high ceilings. North-facing gardens and entertaining space with an upper balcony. A walk-everywhere Peninsula prime position.

Location:  Balmain is a suburb in the Inner West of Sydney, 4km from the CBD with considerable charm, history and many unique buildings.  20 minutes into the city by ferry or bus with plenty of walking and cycling tracks.  Balmain has many beautiful houses, a number of parks, historical hotels and plenty of retail and eateries. It is a popular buzzing suburb with weekly markets and great nightlife.


European couple with a young child wanted help to navigate their way through the purchase process. They had been looking for 8 months and were under bidders at an auction that we successfully bought. They subsequently approached us afterwards. We viewed a number of properties off market and within 3 weeks we ended up buying a property prior to auction. They were unfamiliar and inexperienced in the buying process and found that once they found the property they liked, they were unsure of the best way forward.

I can’t recommend Matt enough. Matt made the whole process completely stress free and gave us the competitive edge we were looking for in buying our first home in Sydney. I’ll never buy a property without Matt again! After about 8 months of unsuccessfully trying to find and buy the right property, we started working with Matt – and three weeks later, we signed on the perfect house for us and well within our budget. The process of buying the house was nearly stress free and communication was spot on. Definitely recommend.
