Moving to Brisbane


Client's goals

Our client was planning on moving back to Brisbane after many years working overseas and was looking for a well-located family home, that was close to amenities and low maintenance. Their location was flexible, with the main requirement being within 10-15 minutes’ drive of the CBD and room for a swimming pool in the future.

The key features they were looking for included:

  • Inner city Brisbane (10-15 minutes’ drive to CBD)
  • Modern or renovated home
  • 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 car garage
  • Potential to install an inground swimming pool
  • Flexible budget

How Templeton helped

During the first 2 weeks of our search we spoke to our client on several occasions, with the aim to focus in on the key suburbs as well as the style and layout of the property that would suit them. The initial brief was a little broad, so our initial aim was to drill down on what would our clients dream home look like as well as their location requirements. We then focussed on 3 key inner city Brisbane suburbs and on a weekly basis, contacted every key agent working these suburbs, and was able to hear about each new and off market listings, before they came to market.

The result

This wonderful family home was identified premarket and suited the clients’ requirements perfectly. The home was successfully purchased by Sam Price via private treaty in a multiple offer scenario.

Sam was a pleasure to work with. While I was overseas, he was able to secure the right property and has shown strong due diligence and patience in the process. I would highly recommend him to anyone. In the end you tend to get what you pay for and in this case, I can't see better value than selecting Sam for your property purchase!
