Just Purchased 4/70 St Marks Road, Randwick

PURCHASED 4/70 St Marks Road, Randwick

Client Brief: Investment property in the Eastern Suburbs. Must be in a small block, strong capital growth potential and a good yield. Budget: Under $900,000

Result:  After interviewing 6 other local buyer's agents, Rodney McLoughlin's client decided he was the best fit to help him securing and investment property in the Eastern Suburbs, due to his connections, local knowledge and 30 years of property development experience.

Rodney's client had a 10 week period to secure an investment property before his loan expired, therefore time was of the essence.

After inspecting around 15 properties, with most having strata levy issues due to poor maintenance or located on main roads, Rodney was notified by one of his connections of a beautiful art deco unit coming on the market that the owner wanted sold ASAP. 

The unit was in a small block of six, quiet street, low body corporate fees, that was well funded. It had level access from the street and direct access at the rear to a private garden. Also, it had a renovated 70m2 internal floor plan.

With the vendor keen to off load the unit before auction, the competition was limited and after making two offers the unit was secured within the the first week on the market for a low $12,428 per square meter and a potential yield of approximately 3.3%.

 

Price: $870,000

We found TBAS after searching google for local and well reviewed buyer’s agents. We instructed TBAS to purchase our... first family home in Darling Point that sold for mid $7m. We couldn’t have been happier with the performance of Rodney on the night. After we discussed strategy a few times prior to the auction, he then executed that strategy perfectly and we ended up with a great result. We are now in the processes of using him again for a second property purchase. He’s friendly, professional and a great communicator! I highly recommend his services to anyone.read more

Being first time home buyers we were unfamiliar with the entire home buying process. We decided to get Rodney as a our... buyer's agent and have not regretted it. Rodney was very professional and responsive to all of our queries. He is also very patient and approachable. He is highly recommended.read more

Summary:* Rodney is extremely responsive.* Rodney is a very warm and professional guy who helped us feel at ease... with the auction bidding process.* Rodney had done research on the property and had a good idea of where the reserve price would be and what the property would go for which made us feel confident about whether we stood a good chance at auction.* Rodney took control of the auction from the beginning. The other bidders didn’t stand a chance!* Rodney won our dream apartment for us!* I have already started recommending Rodney to my family and friends. If we’re lucky enough to purchase another property in the future, we’ll definitely ask Rodney for his help.Here’s the full story, from the perspective of two first home buyers:My wife and I had fallen in love with an apartment that was going to auction in one weeks time. We attend an auction the weekend before to learn how the bidding process works so that we could do the bidding ourselves the following weekend. The prices at that auction rose rapidly and many of the 10+ bidders were quickly knocked out. We left the auction feeling intimidated and worried about our ability to bid with confidence at our own auction. This was a Saturday.I woke up early on Sunday morning still feeling worried about our ability to perform under pressure at our upcoming auction. A quick Google search later, I had found out about Rodney and TBAS and the auction bidding service that he offers. There was a link to send him an instant message so I sent him one asking about how we could engage him for his auction bidding service. I fully expected to receive a reply on Monday morning during regular business hours so headed off to the gym to clear my mind.And that’s when the excellent customer service began! At 6:30 AM on a Sunday morning, I received my first reply from Rodney. We sent messages to each other while I was on the treadmill at the gym. At 7:00 AM, I had already received the forms to complete to formally engage Rodney! I was already starting to feel better about our prospects at auction. It was a load off my mind!On Monday morning, the excellent customer service continued. I received a message from Rodney at about 9:30 AM saying that he had already had a chat with the selling agent and that he had some insights into the likely reserve price of the property. Rodney and I discussed our budget and whether we stood a chance at auction. The chat with Rodney left me feeling more relaxed and glad that I had reached out to him for help. I knew that our dream apartment was within our reach and with Rodney on our side, our chances of winning at auction were even higher.Saturday morning came around. It was auction day! We met Rodney at the property 30 minutes prior to the auction. As suspected from my earlier phone call with him, he was an extremely warm and nice guy. We decided on a maximum bid and Rodney explained what his bidding strategy would be. It felt great to have an experienced professional on our side!When the auction finally took place, no one else stood a chance! Rodney took control of the auction from the beginning. It was as if my wife and I had a secret weapon at the auction. The whole process lasted just over 5 minutes. Rodney had won our dream apartment for us! Hooray!Rodney stayed with us while we signed the contract of sale and even took photos of my wife and me under the “SOLD” sign. He was with us until the end. What a guy!My wife and I highly recommend Rodney to help you with your next property purchase. If we decide to purchase another property in the future, we will definitely be reaching out to Rodney for his assistance. I’ve already been recommending Rodney to my family and friends.Thank you, Rodney! You’re the best!read more

Rodney was a pleasure to deal with. We engaged him less than a week out from going to auction, he was incredibly... responsive and available in the lead up. He is a clear communicator and genuinely a really nice guy to deal with. His research was helpful in qualifying our thoughts on the property and expected price range and reserve. We agreed a clear strategy for auction, he navigated the auction and other bidders seamlessly, predicting each move and ultimately he successfully secured the property for us. Engaging his services for auction bidding was absolutely the best decision for us to get the outcome we were after. Highly recommend.read more

Rodney saved the day. In my 80th year I decided I would relocate from the Northern Beaches to the East. I wasn’t... familiar with the geography and was dependent on public transport. Against all odds Rodney got me installed in a flat which tick my boxers, that I could afford, which wasn’t easy. In retrospect, it seemed easy thanks to Rodney from TBAS Buyers Agents. Thank you Rodney you are a super hero.read more

Rodney is a lovely man to deal with, and made the process of purchasing my first property far less daunting than it had... been prior to commissioning him. It may have been simple coincidence, but having done my own thing for close to 6 months, Rodney was able to secure the first property we genuinely pursued with his full service offering. Fully recommended to anyone unsure of navigating the real estate market.read more

Buying a property in Sydney is intimidating at the best of times and even more so in the current market.We just... bought our first family home using the services of Rodney McLoughlin of TBAS and couldn't be happier! His experience, knowledge, professionalism and passion was obvious from the outset. Getting a detailed analysis of the property we were interested in gave us the confidence we were buying our dream home at the right price.You have someone on your side working for a great result the whole way. Our property went to auction and knowing Rodney was in our corner on the day allowed us to actually enjoy the process knowing we were in with the best chance....... and we got it!5 Stars Rodney McLoughlin ..... you were brilliant!!read more

I have been looking to purchase a property for a few months without success as the price is increasing on a weekly... basis in this hot market.One day I saw TBAS Buyers Agents advertisement popped up on the social media and curious to know what they are doing as I have never heard before. I reviewed the service offering and success stories on their website and contacted Rodney McLoughlin who responded nearly straight away with my enquiry. I then decided that there is no harm in trying as their cost seems reasonable.Rodney was exceptionally professional and undertook market research to accurately calculate the price range of the first property as the result reflected after auction however we couldn’t afford it. A few weeks later I found another property and contacted Rodney who was on holiday with family in another State and still discussed the buying strategies with me. He successfully negotiated to sale before auction hence I avoided paying the maximum price, we would not have bought the property without him.I am very happy with the result and would highly recommend anyone who is looking to buy a property to contact Rodney.read more

We were looking to buy a property at what was shaping to be a hotly contested auction. We felt that we needed... professional representation to get us over the line. As such we started researching buyers agents. After some desktop research, I came across TBAS Buyers Agent Sydney. I left my details with TBAS and within 15 minutes, Rodney McLoughlin from TBAS promptly replied to us and agreed to help us bid at the auction which was in the following week.Rodney is an excellent communicator and instilled confidence in us at every step of the way. We had several conference calls where we discussed auction strategies and engaged in open dialogue about the property's value based on in-depth market research that he prepared. The evening before the auction, we had another conference call and were feeling happy and confident. On the auction day, nerves were naturally high, but with Rodney by our side, we felt at ease. During the auction, Rodney represented us to perfection and exactly as we discussed. Ultimately we secured the property of our dreams in a tough Sydney market. I would personally recommend TBAS if you are looking for top-notch auction representation as we had a delightful experience. Thank you Rodney!read more

With the help Rodney’s knowledge and experience we managed to secure our first home in Rouse Hill. There were tough... negotiations involved in the purchase, and Rodney acted in a quick and fair way we would not have done if we had entered negotiations ourselves. We first got Rodney’s help to bid for a home for which we were not able to attend the auction, and although we did not win the auction, due to the experience we knew when we find the house we must have, it would be a good idea to get his help. He truly went above and beyond. Thank you so much Rodney!!read more

We have been looking to buy our family home for almost 6 months and in this time we went through several stressful... attempts to secure a property.From the moment we engaged Rodney to help us with negotiation and, potentially, with the auction bidding, the whole process became controlled, and we were absolutely certain that we're making exactly the right choices every time. In less than a week from our first chat with him, we exchanged contracts for a fantastic house well within our budget!Rodney is the ultimate professional, extremely knowledgeable, calm and always responding straight to your queries, making you feel comfortable in negotiation process.Based on our recent experience, we would not think of doing any other move in the property market without talking to him first.read more

We contacted Rodney 2 days out from Auction for assistance on the day, because we had bad experiences at Auctions... previously. I would highly recommend his service. His advice was excellent and his bidding strategy and read on the other bidders was spot on.Rodney was able to predict the reserve and let me know when the other bidder was nearly done. We secured the property for well below the reserve against another very eager bidder. I don't think we would have been successful without his assistance.It was well worth the reasonable fee. Having Rodney there took a lot of the stress and uncertainty away and made the Auction more enjoyable.read more

We engaged Rodney initially to bid for us at auction on a property, unfortunately it went 32% over the price guide... 😂However, Rodney was great in the lead up to the auction and was great on the day of.After we were unsuccessful we decided to use Rodney’s full services to help us find our new home as he made us feel at ease and gave us much more confidence throughout the process.He was very responsive to any questions at any time, and he came with us to inspections and asked the more difficult questions and also just had a lot of insight that only someone doing this for as long as him would have.He compiled reports for us and handled 100% of the negotiation that helped us secure a home prior to auction... all after we decided to go ahead with it at 2pm on a Friday afternoon.I never thought I’d be the person to use a buyers agent but I can say, hands down this was the best money we spent during our search for a home.I would recommend Rodney to everyone looking for a new home and will definitely use him again the next time I go through this.read more

I engaged Rodney's services quite late in the game. Literally days before the auction to purchase my dream home. Nerves... were absolutely through the roof, but when I got off the phone with Rodney, a huge weight just lifted from my shoulders. Knowing he had a wealth of experience, and that he would represent me, gave me an immense sense of relief. On auction day, Rodney was confident, self assured and professional - and he got the job done. I got my 'forever' home within budget. I know without a shadow of a doubt that I would have lost the house if I'd bid myself. And I'm thankful that I was able to engage Rodney's services at the eleventh hour. If you're starting your property purchase journey, or even if you're at the tail end of the process like I was, do yourself a favour and give Rodney a call.read more
