The sellers of this heritage home have been locals in the area for over 20 years and had developed such an affinity to Kelvin Grove that their new home is also located in the suburb. The property was well received by the market and full credit must go to the sellers who did a lovely job at maintaining the classic character and features of 20 Horsburgh Street, they were also able to keep up with modern trends through the use of different fittings and fixtures in the home.

We ran a fantastic campaign that drew interest from local, Greater Brisbane and interstate buyers, resulting in the rare situation of a sale prior to auction. Both the buyer and seller were forthright, open and honest during negotiations. Communication needed to be direct and speedy to accommodate the buyers intentions of moving in before Christmas.

This sale set a record for the street and also a suburb record for the year so far.
