Seller - 30 Morella Rd, Whale Beach

February 2021

Duncan sold our house on Sydney's northern beaches recently. With us living overseas, this being a significant asset for us and the high level of hype around the market we were anxious sellers. Duncan was clear on how we assessed the opportunity and the risks and managed the sale process to ensure we achieved those objectives without the heart-pounding ride that selling a house can involve. We are delighted with the outcome and how quickly and efficiently he ran the whole sale.

Two things stand out for us about Duncan

1) He personally takes full ownership and worked tirelessly for us throughout and 2) He has a style and approach that buyers just seem to respond to so well. We couldn't recommend him highly enough.
