• A bear in the China shop

    Last week’s newsletter was about the false reporting of sales results by some agents, the response I had from our readers was astonishing. Normally I get a dozen or so responses with people either saying how much they like this weekly note (thank you), or the haters that hurl venomous abuse at how terrible my newsletter is (seriously…ther... read more

  • The theory of relativity.

    The theory of relativity.

    Things are flying in here at the moment with our very own Wonder Woman, Bindi, closing 3 sales this week in my absence….hmmm, makes me wonder about taking more holidays!
    It's back to business and I am proud to announce that we are launching some superb new homes to market, but from what I can see it's going to be slim pickings for ... read more

  • Mi casa, su casa.

    Mi casa, su casa.

    Ok I get it...reading a newsletter that claims to be about property yet the author is swanning around Spain sipping on vino and feasting on pintxos can get tiring, I promise it all ends soon (but seriously...get to San Sebastián).

    For avid fans of hypocrisy the good news is that next week I will likely be writing about exercise, fasting ... read more

  • Loose lips sink ships.

    Loose lips sink ships.

    Yes, I’m still on holiday and loving it...sorry for the Monday mail but it’s proof I’m just taking some time to relax.

    As we head into school holidays this unusually quiet market is about to get even quieter. Hopeful buyers are joining an ever-growing waiting list and that means good things for sellers down the line.

  • Greetings from Rome.

    Greetings from Rome.

    We promise to bring you some flavour with these newsletters so this week prego!
    At present, I am sitting in front of a glass of vino in Rome listening to an Italian waiter plead with an American tourist to not order a traditional bolognese with some pesto. For her it’s pesto and bolognese, for him it’s life or death. I love th... read more

  • Off market is the new black.

    Off market is the new black.

    Despite the rain the Mini-mos Marathon and Mosman Public School fair on Sunday was a huge success. Thank you to everyone that came along, especially all of the volunteers who contributed so much.
    Back to my day job…this week we have made three sales. In addition, today we helped clients secure a stunning premium home in Mosman off-... read more

  • OMG...Bono is so old.

    OMG...Bono is so old.

    Twenty years ago we were in drought and record low rainfall was putting pressure on our dams, the Coalition had just defied all of the polls and won the Federal election, and U2 were touring the country dazzling stadiums with their classic rock anthems. Oh…and stock levels across the north shore were at record lows. So low in fact that it too... read more

    Kicking tyres is bad for your feet.

    With interest rates hitting record lows this week and the election result now decided, I feel compelled to write an open letter to buyers who have been looking for too long (that means 6 months or more).
    Now that market conditions have noticeably improved we are seeing a new wave of buyers coming, so if you don’t focus on acting I f... read more

    A bear, a bull and a cat go into a bar...

    As this is the second instalment of this week’s newsletter I will keep it brief.

    The bears have finally gone into hibernation this winter but will they wake up and re-emerge this spring? For anyone wondering, a bear market is a metaphor for falling prices and pessimism (a bear swiping its paw downward), and a bull market is characterised ... read more

  • Serious climate change.

    Serious climate change.

    This week we’re breaking tradition to brighten up your Monday with an early edition of our newsletter, and report to you on how Super Saturday went.

    In a nutshell, the market has pulled more G’s than a fighter jet in the past week going from sluggish to white hot. The surprise election result, RBA rate cut messaging, APRA easing on ... read more
