Just as the media is talking down apartments and the RBA has tightened up on investor loans, Simon gave us great advice to sell vacant possession to owner occupier. He sold our apartment (with amazing river views admittedly) for a good price. Despite a false start with buyer who couldn't get finance we got numerous offers and finalised the sale with good result, after an extension to the sales campaign.
Simon Polinelli is a wonderful person work with. He was just awesome throughout the whole process of buying my home. I've already recommended him to someone. He was just wonderful!!!!!!!!! The home he helped me pick out me and my family could not be happier!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We called Simon when we were interested in selling our home in January 2017. He told us his average home sold within a month. He brought a binder of data with him about home sales at our first meeting. We had a lot of deferred maintenance so needed to get our home in resale shape. Simon went to each and every room and gave us a list of what needed to be done. We completed everything on the list. He brought in a professional stager, who really helped us with showing the home in its best light and a photographer who made beautiful flyers for the showing. Due to his internal networking, he actually had an interested buyer for us before the For-Sale sign even went up. In any event, true to his word, our home was sold within three weeks at the price we were asking and even had an offer over the asking price (unfortunately had a contingency so we didn't accept it). Simon is very hard-working, responsive, and really looks out for the best interest of his clients. I had no idea how much actually went into selling a house and was very glad to have a professional like him in my corner with all the resources that he brought with him. I would highly recommend him.
Simon Polinelli worked with me through the purchase of a new home and sale of my existing home. He quickly learned what I wanted and found it for me in a few days. He directed me in what I needed to do to sell my existing home and it sold very quickly for very close to my asking price when we listed it.
My experience with Simon Polinelli was simply outstanding. My wife and I were looking to downsize to a smaller home in a very limited geographical area. Simon worked with us on a very personal basis and helped us to understand what we really wanted. At one point, Simon even told us that "You might decide to buy this house, but I will not sell it to you."! Simon is knowledgeable and always available. he would always show up on short notice and take us to see potential homes. It was his local area knowledge and networking that enabled us to purchase our new home. We simply could not have done this without him. I have been watching the listing since our offer was accepted and there has still not been another home like the one Simon found!
Our home buying experiences with Simon began a few years ago, with the sale & purchase of a home. Everything went very smoothly and Simon's knowledge base of the area, diligence, and attention to detail made those transactions worry free. Fast forward a few years, Simon again was our first choice to get us into the house of our dreams and to sell our home once again. Simon was somehow able to always be one step ahead and ultimately see us through another sale and purchase. When the process seemed daunting, Simon was the eternal optimist and reassured us that everything would work out. He also sold our home within hours of listing. From market analysis, contract negotiations, and doing literally whatever it took to get both deals done, Simon was outstanding in terms of his ability to make it happen. We felt like family and like we were his only client. Highly recommend this agent and friend for your next real estate transaction.
Simon was the third real estate agent that I spoke to sell my late father's house. My father was an architect and engineer, and had designed the house, which was the home in which I grew up. As I showed Simon the house I began to realize that there was something different about him. His questions and comments revealed considerable attention to detail and also knowledge of materials and construction. More importantly, he listened very closely to the story of my father and the house, and therefore could relate to what I was going through on a personal level, and also understand what I wanted for the property's future. Choosing Simon was the best decision I could have made. His marketing strategy was excellent - he recommended a home staging consultant who provided many useful recommendations, and a professional photographer who came up with beautiful pictures, and had all of us prepare for a single open house. The open house must have attracted a record attendance, and generated multiple offers, all but one of which were above asking price. Needless to say, the entire experience and the final sale exceeded my expectations.
