With discretion assured the rich, and in some cases, famous are back securing and selling real estate along the coast and Apollo Bay is no exception. With high profile clients both as vendors and buyers now viewing and back buying blue chip property.

For example, the below property that is on the market in Apollo Bay for $2.85M;

Even a couple of years ago, you would not have seen anything like this.

Another ingredient spicing up the mix is the influence of expat Australians working overseas, especially Asian based, and including the Emirates. With Australia easing restrictions on foreign investments, we are now starting to spend more time with resident overseas buyers as well. I have dealt with a dozen or more overseas buyers in the last 14 months with a very strong conversion to sale. A Hong Kong buyer just recently purchased a property at $600,000+ in Noel Street.

I have in recent years successfully sold at record prices, a wongarra property at $2.65M, a Glen Murcutt designed home for $2.4M and a Peter McIntyre designed home at $2.2M, with those record buyers having a strong belief in the Apollo Bay coastline and the world class design of the architecture. Also, investors recently purchased a 60 acre vacant parcel of land for future development in excess of $4.5M.

With buyer confidence on the way back up and a track record of high end transactions our agency offers the top end of the market, unsurpassed service and recorded achievements. I have listed below the top 5 record sales of each town along the coast:
1. $2.85M – Wongarra
2. $2.4M – Moonlight Head
3. $2.2M – Marengo
4. $1.8M – Skenes Creek
5. $1.145M – Marengo
1. $3.65M – Smith Street
2. $2.9M – Mountjoy Parade
3. $2.86M – Ocean Road South
4. $2M – Mountjoy Parade
5. $1.95M – Hall Street
1. $2.67M – Banool Road, Fairhaven
2. $2.1M – Banool Road, Fairhaven
3. $1.9M – Great Ocean Road, Eastern View
4. $1.7M – Banool Road, Fairhaven
5. $1.45M – Great Ocean Road, Eastern View

The key to my success and the agency’s is that we get inside the heart of the owner as to why they love their properties and where their favourite spots are. Also, having a long and established reputation and links with the right connections, clubs and associations and our ongoing support of charity, leaves us with the right people and connections to place the property to the market through a long relationship building foundation.
