We began the search for our home when we had just had our second baby. Sheila and her team were excellent in understanding our needs and highlighting additional opportunities that we hadn’t previously considered. At a time when the property market became very unpredictable, we were easily able to pivot our investment strategy and approach. Through all of this (add lockdowns to the mix), Sheila was excellent at ensuring that our best interests were at the centre of the decision making. She scanned multiple options and only provided us with those that were winners. We were very happy with our ultimate decision and look forward to working with her when we begin the hunt for our next property.

I engaged Sheila’s services earlier this year when I had to find an apartment for my elderly mother. Working full time I was time poor and both my mother and I were grappling with my father’s Alzheimers care. A friend suggested using a buyer’s agent and it was absolutely the best decision I ever made. We had quite a prescriptive brief - my mother was used to living in a big house with a garden, and whilst she needed to downsize quite dramatically; space, light and an outlook was still very important to her. What made our search even more challenging at the time was the spike in Sydney property prices and the scarcity of stock - all topped by COVID restrictions and lockdowns.
Sheila never gave up and was relentless in her search. She was always optimistic, full of suggestions and never took offence if we didn't like something. We had a few setbacks - properties we were interested in but then didn't stack up on the strata front - but she persevered. One of the things she did which really made a difference to me was to come and pick my mother up to take her to a viewing when I couldn't because I couldn't leave my father by himself. This was unexpected but very much appreciated. Sheila did all the leg work for us so that she wasn't wasting our time and constantly kept us up to date with what she was viewing on our behalf, outcomes etc. We only ever looked at something when she thought it worthwhile. Sheila's contacts also helped and we had the opportunity to view a number of off-market properties - one of which we bought after being the first and only people to view the property. It was everything my mother had hoped for and to see the look on her face and hear her say she didn't feel "displaced" anymore made it all worthwhile.

My wife and I are both busy professionals that own our own Design practise, as well as having have three young children to care for. We initially started our house search without a buyer’s agent, and found it far too time consuming. We never found what we wanted, and when we did, we were not knowledgeable enough to negotiate the right way, and we lost a property that we would have loved to secure, through no fault but our won.
When we engaged Shelia, she brought many “off market” opportunities to us that we otherwise would have never found. She took the time to understand us as a family, what our needs and goalls were, and only showed us properties that ticked all our boxes. Each weekend when we had properties to inspect, we knew they would be of substance as Sheila had done all of the ground work for us. She steered us away from homes that were overpriced, not suitable, and took all the emotion out of the buying process which was very important for us, as we are both very emotional people. Sheila knew how to manage the vendors agents and knew the games that are typically played to get the best price.
We knew we were in good hands, and the price we paid for our family was a bargain thanks to her expertise and negotiation skills. The experience was a pleasure and we would never hesitate to work with her again on our next search.
Sheila made the process of buying real estate very easy. I had put off buying an investment property for some time as I had thought I didn’t have the time to find, inspect and negotiate the purchase of a suitable property. However, Sheila made the process quick and painless. It was great to have her vet properties, deal with real estate agents, make relevant enquiries and help devise a successful negotiation strategy.
I am very appreciative of her advice and support throughout the process and I will definitely engage her on my next property purchase.

With the help of Sheila we were able secure a wonderful property in Mosman Sydney.
Living in Shanghai China and trying to navigate the Sydney property market from overseas was a daunting and challenging proposition. Once we had Sheila on-board and with her knowledge of the local property market…… coupled with understanding of our needs. We were…… in a timely and efficient manner able to secure our property with ease.
We are looking forward to working with Sheila again in the near distant future.
Sheila was an invaluable asset in helping me find an investment house for us in Manly. Working and living overseas made it impossible for me to look.
We secured a magnificent place and we couldn't have done it without the help of Sheila and Property Advisory Services Sydney. Also, having Sheila there the day of the auction made it much easier on us and our nerves.
Sheila helped me secure a beautiful apartment in Darlinghurst and without her I don't think I could've found such a great apartment.
Working and traveling for work didn't give me a lot of time to look on my own. Sheila's services were invaluable.
