Thanks to their market-leading traction for prestige property sales, Matt Hayson and Rita Lopresti sold 75 Evans Street, Rozelle after just 13 days on the market, achieving the highest price on the Rozelle peninsula at the time of sale, 7 August 2023.

Of the historic sandstone treasure reimagined by YSG Studio, Matt comments, “Securing this listing was a particularly competitive battle, however our track record, energy and enthusiasm to deliver an exceptional result were pivotal. Selling prestige homes is our specialty, with our experience and insight really coming to the fore, so ultimately our clients knew they were in the safest of hands.”

“To start off we tapped into our rich resource of high-net worth buyers to commence pre-market showings. The initial response was incredibly positive and delivered the platform to move ahead with confidence to a broader auction marketing campaign. We also tightened up the auction timeline to a 3.5 week sale process as prestige buyers are time poor and make quick decisions when they see something they like.”


“After shooting 85 images of the property we whittled it down to the 30 that we felt best represented the residence. These were supported by a cinema-quality video and a highly detailed fact sheet that covered all the elements and materials used, reaching out to the designer to obtain commentary on the key features of the home. The marketing generated huge media coverage, securing multiple editorial pieces on Million Dollar Listing and The Real Estate Conversation.”


“We ran our typical open homes twice a week and spent considerable time working one-on-one with key parties, showing the property privately and addressing all raised comments. Capturing a diverse range of people looking right across the greater Sydney region, we met every buyer with a smile and reinforced the quality of this remarkable residence. For a property at a record-breaking price point, the interest was incredibly high, being testament to the quality and size of the home.”


“Once we’d established a trendline of price feedback, we openly provided guidance on where each party would need to mentally prepare themselves to secure the home. Early on we identified that moving to a sale prior to auction was on the cards and ensured our clients were across this shift in tactics and ready to move when we felt buyer interest was at a peak level. A strong pre-auction offer was submitted in the second week of the campaign and by this stage we’d already done a huge amount of groundwork to ensure all interested buyers were in a position to put forward their best offer. We opted to move into pre-auction negotiations as we discovered that fewer interested parties would be competitive once we hit a certain price level. Negotiations were conducted over a weekend, arriving at the final sale price on the Monday.”


“While our campaign attracted more than 152 buyer inspections with nine contracts issued, it was a purchaser from the CH database who was the winner. Our longstanding position in the market exposes us to a huge audience and our clients rely on our intimate knowledge of the buyer pool. Another speciality that we deliver beyond other agents is our level of communication, both verbal and written. Selling property in the area for more than 25 years, we’re well ahead of buyer conversations and movements before they even arrive at their decision. We constantly inform our clients of every relevant conversation and the positioning of buyers, providing a running sheet of interest and who’s evolving to be the top contenders.”


“This was an exceptional campaign in terms of drawing in a wide-ranging audience. Evans Street is one of the busier streets in the area however the quality of the residence surpassed that concern. It was such a rare home that every single comment about the property was positive, which was simply amazing and made our clients proud of what they had achieved with the renovation.”
