Our Services

When it comes to understanding property, Charles & Stuart is unsurpassed. Our track record of success makes us market leaders in the field, providing a range of property services including project marketing, sales and leasing.

Our services include:

Sales

If you are considering selling an investment property or your family home, our Sales Team provides you with informed, expert advice. The Team is comprised of dedicated, professional sales and support staff who make selling your property the focus of all their efforts. Our commitment to the industry and knowledge of the residential market is second to none, and we combine the use of modern technology, specialised skills, experience and good old fashioned values to tailor a marketing solution for your property to achieve the best possible result.  

Charles & Stuart’s General Agency specialises in marketing a range of residential properties. Our team of skilled, experienced professionals assesses each property individually, advising on the best approach to suit current market conditions, the property’s ‘individuality’, and our vendors’ requirements. We use a number of methods and work with you to assess which ones best suit your needs:

  • Private treaty: Under private treaty, your home is placed with us as exclusive agents for an agreed period of time with a predetermined asking price.
  • Auctions: Selling property by auction is recognised as a fast and highly efficient method of selling and achieving a premium price for your property. We tailor each auction campaign to suit the specific requirements of your home, working with you at each stage of the process to ensure a seamless and successful transaction.
  • Expressions of Interest: This method of sale involves marketing the property without a set asking price.  There is a set closure date by which time all interested parties must register their interest. It avoids the risk of incorrect pricing as well as obtaining genuine buyer feedback as to the likely value of the property – i.e. what the market would pay at that time. It is a discreet method of sale and is ideal for special properties and/or high profile vendors. There is also a reduced sense of urgency due to the lack of open competition.  Most offers are conditional and can be subject to considerable negotiation prior to a sale being achieved.
  • Tender: If accountability is an issue, such as with government agencies, we develop a tender campaign, which is similar to Expression of Interest, and requires binding bids to be submitted on binding contracts with a 10 per cent deposit as part of the process.

Regardless of the method employed our sales team coordinates all marketing activities and monitors the implementation of all legal and contractual requirements.

Employing a proven combination of Internet promotion and traditional marketing strategies designed to maximise exposure, we tailor successful, cost-effective campaigns. Our negotiation strategies are well honed and second to none.
