The masterpiece of this home is at the northern wing of the residence, as you walk down the long hallway you are teased with floor to ceiling windows. It’s until you enter the main bedroom you are blown away with the massive full-length windows almost spanning the whole width of two walls. 35.Trafalgar.Crescent_VALENTINE-36

Welcome to our way

Introducing Tom Stewart & Kerrie Piefke, they’ll be welcoming you in with a smile and always up for a chat.

 

Imagine this for a moment…

You’re on the hunt for a new place to call home, you’ve spent the last couple of weeks running around during your lunch break and knocking off early to be the first to check out the new rentals you saw online. You’re booking online for inspections, sometimes you’re the only one turning up, no agent in sight. You call to confirm you’ve got the right time, they tell you it was cancelled because there wasn’t enough interest for that inspection time.

603.738.Hunter.Street.NEWCASTLE-4You come across a property from Villager, which looks like a winner but you don’t see an option to book in for the inspection the coming day. You call in the morning to confirm your booking and Kerrie answers.

 

 

“Morning Kerrie, I’d like to book in and see your Hunter Street apartment tomorrow”

Kerrie “Goodmorning, you actually don’t need to book in, we’ll be there ready to meet you. We schedule our open homes for both midday and late afternoons, which allows you to either pop in during your lunch break or after work.”

“Oh, so I don’t need to book?”

Kerrie “That’s right, there’s no need to book in.”

“But how do I know that you’re going to turn up?”

Kerrie “When we advertise our inspections, we turn up at those times. No need to book, we’ll be there ready to welcome you in.”

“But everyone else makes you book in.”

Kerrie “That’s right, we’re not like everyone else, we’re Villager.”

Making a house a home with Courtney

The biggest value comes from helping obtain a tenant who would easily fall in love with the property and call it their own.

Meet:
Courtney Rumble

tradie.night-october-3

Courtney’s our Senior Property Manager who works closely alongside our Landlords and Tenants to provide a service which is rather unheard of in the Property Management industry.

18.Glossop.Street_NEW.LAMBTON-1.jpg

Courtney takes a very consultative approach in providing the greatest service for all properties she manages, current listing of 18 Glossop Street is a prime example.

 

The Landlords bought the property over to Villager from another agency whilst it was still tenanted. On Courtney’s first inspection, she could see this little charmer had an abundance of potential. She did, however, note a few areas that were starting to deteriorate, which is to be expected with a house of its age.

18.Glossop.Street_NEW.LAMBTON-14

“Whilst I know no one likes spending when things aren’t broken the owners understood the value of freshening up the interior. There would indeed be a financial return but the biggest value comes from helping obtain a tenant who would easily fall in love with the property and call it their own.”

 

 

Once the opportunity arose, Courtney set about organising all the trades. She met them on site to gather quotes for painting, flooring and carpet installers.

“We have a great relationship with our trades, which assist us in ensuring a quick turnaround, not only of quoting but in the commencement of work. Our painter, Andrew from ASC Painting, rescheduled his workload to accommodate us. Thanks Andrew!”

 

 

Craftsman from Newcastle Timber Flooring also named Andrew on the job doing a superb work with the sander. We are loving the end result, matt finish and all!18.Glossop.Street_NEW.LAMBTON-19And thanks to Dean Conway and the team from Independent Carpets for their speedy work.

 

From meeting the trades to quote, through to having the property up and ready for inspection, took 4 weeks.

18.Glossop.Street_NEW.LAMBTON-2.jpg

“I like to work closely with our Landlords to ensure a high standard of care to their property that will help attract an amazing Tenant who can easily call the property home.”

Impressions-10.jpg

This week I caught up with my hairdresser over in Kahibah’s neck of the woods, Impressions Hair and Beauty. I see the guys quite regularly (every three weeks to cover my greys, but don’t tell anyone). They’ve always done a really good job and I love the community feel they’ve created in their salon.  

Impressions-7.jpg

How long have you been here

Olivia: My sister, Nadia, has owned this salon for about 7 years.

Impressions-8.jpg

What inspired you to get into hairdressing

When I left school I wanted to follow in my sister’s footsteps and so I went and did an apprenticeship. Now I get to work alongside my sister every day, it’s pretty awesome.

Impressions-5.jpg

Why Kahibah

We’re from Whitebridge, and we’ve lived here for at least 20 years. It’s close to home and we love this area. It’s a really great locality, we’ve got easy access to parking and reasonably priced and we’re all really friendly.

 

What do you bring to your local community 

We bring new hair dos.

There are a few salons close by but it hasn’t really affected us, we’ve got our regular clients that keep on keeping on. now we’re introducing barbering into the salon as well. I’ll be heading that, which I’m pretty excited about. We’ve got a barber chair ready to go, we just need to find a spot in the salon for it.

Impressions-1

What’s the kindest thing someone has done for you since you’ve been here 

I think we’ve created something unique that our clients feel really appreciated and a part of our little community. Sometimes our clients bring in little goodies for us at Christmas or they make homemade yummy things and bring them along to share. We just love it!

Impressions-12.jpg

What’s changed for you guys

We’re known for being a Schwarzkopf salon but we’ve recently introduced Eleven, which is an Australian owned business and we love it plus our clients are really enjoying it too.
