“Take photo now? I should be all dressed up for this occasion!” responded my client when I told him that we would capture a memory together.
“Just be natural,” I assured, “Both of you look great!”
Natural is the keyword in this buying project. While most buyers from China are not fans of trees on their properties, these clients are nature’s lovers. They want to live as close to a reserve as possible! Imagine their delight when they realised that I am the only buyer's advocate in Melbourne who has a wealth of plant knowledge!
Within a short time, I found a 3 bedroom house on a 880sqm block just right beside a huge reserve and negotiated a decent deal to snatch it off the market in less than 8 days on the market. I used a ‘Clean and Win’ strategy for this purchase against other competitors.
The house was immaculately maintained and the vendor was offered a dream job so she had to move interstate – a good sign for the Chinese that the house has good Chi since the previous occupant is winning in life. Another good sign was a large nest with baby birds found above the 15m Eucalyptus tree at the backyard, signifying good luck and a good ‘nesting’ home.
“Erick, my Chinese friend is coming next month to hunt for a property. Can I introduce you to him so you could help him too?” asked my real estate agent client. Yes, he sells Australian properties in China.
“Yes,” I replied, “I will look after him.”
I guess that is his way of saying thank you!
