An unstoppable pair at CH Petersham

Nick Arena has been a familiar face in Inner West real estate for 23 years now, negotiating some of the area’s most significant sales. Together with Sales Associate Benjamin Nardi, he’s been helping locals successfully navigate the market through its many ups and downs. 

“If you ask me what lessons I’ve learned during my time selling real estate, I’d definitely say that transparency is key,” says Nick. “People want to know where they stand and if you’re forthright and honest they appreciate it so much more than just being told what they want to hear. Common sense advice, strong communication and consistently reliable performance are really the aim of the sales process. We have built our business on giving accurate, authentic information and feedback. It’s vitally important that our clients align with the strategy and process that we recommend be put into place – if we’re all on the same page, it lays the foundations for excellent results.”

“Purchasing property has become harder in that it’s definitely more challenging for buyers to enter the market. I encourage younger buyers to get onto the ladder as soon as they can, because once you’re in the game you have options. People who have held property for 5-10 years have seen significant growth and have been able to trade up well. At the moment we’re seeing some varying results in our area, however properties that tick a lot of boxes are still performing strongly and there are good signs for both vendors and buyers heading into 2024.”

“Building relationships within the community and upholding your reputation are vitally important elements in real estate. Ben’s been working with me for five years now and he’s forged a great reputation of his own accord, providing invaluable assistance to clients during their journey. Petersham is a small neighbourhood and we go out of our way to support local businesses and engage with people. Having been based here for so long I’ve seen the area’s progression first-hand, including the substantial changes over the past 5-7 years. Our team has a great mix of experience and youth, so we can really relate to the broad cross-section of our local demographic. That’s why clients turn to us time and time again, knowing that they can expect a great experience and a great outcome.”
