The Client Said...
"The highly daunting and intensive prospect of selling my family home in Lake Wendouree, had me in a state of anxiety and panic. I was working 2 jobs, one in Melbourne that required me to travel interstate and the other doing weekends in Ballarat. Where was I going to find the time and inspiration to get organised and ready for sale?
My lovely ramshackle house had been loved and lived in for 22 years by toddlers, teenagers and then adult children. Throw in dogs, chooks and paraphernalia of various sporting interests…We had stuff, a lot of stuff!
My real estate agent gently suggested I needed a bit of help and referred me to Jo.
We hit it off from the start and before I knew it, we had a plan, a budget and a task list.
I was a bit shocked at first at some of her ideas. I had lived in and loved this house for 22 years, how could I possibly paint over timberwork and remove stained glass? But I knew what I wanted. I wanted to sell my house and I wanted to sell quickly for the best price. The thought of having it on the market for months and months was not something I had the energy for. This was going to be my best shot and I wanted to do it the best way I possible – once.
So I embraced these astonishing ideas and let go of the past and allowed my house to move into a contemporary fresh new zone.
The results were amazing and the response even better. Sold in 3 weeks and for a price I was hoping for and very happy to accept."
