Description: FACT: Double Bay was called Keltie Cove before 1821. The present day name comes from the two geographical bays between Point Piper and Darling Point. It became a place to be seen in the 60s for its’ glamourous social set and luxury lifestyle. My Double Bay love affair started on a wintry evening trip for ice cream in 1992, the year I arrived in Sydney. Shocked by the Aussie tradition of frozen treats on a cold night (are you serious?), I was not so keen, but I could see from the sparkle in my friend’s eyes, I would have to experience it for myself. We queued in the cold outside a "Double Bay institution", French Riviera, among the hungry buzzing crowd. Opened in 1980, by Jean-Paul Pulcet, ‘The Riviera’ serves up oh-so-rich and creamy confections that Jean-Paul himself has handmade for almost 40 years! His love for ice cream is long lasting - so is my love for Double Bay. For me it was love at the first sight. From window shopping through elegant shop displays of glamorous clothes and luxury jewellery and designer homewares, to continental streets with flashy cars and alfresco dining. What a scene! I made up my mind immediately that I would open my own boutique in Double Bay one day. I found work with Fashion Designer, Stuart Membery’s Double Bay studio and learned to drink and fuel my love for coffee months later, while I studied fashion at East Sydney TAFE. Little known fact: it was a homesick Hungarian, who escaped from a war-torn country, who introduced café culture to the suburb. The first espresso café in the neighbourhood was George’s opened in 1956. No wonder my Budapest born husband’s favourite coffee is espresso. (And no, I didn’t meet him by placing a bunch of bananas in my basket in Woollies on a Wednesday night – as the flirtatious code was – or is – of the day!) Among the new and trendy eateries were, the long-standing '21 Espresso' and my favourite, 'The Cosmopolitan Double Bay'. Their goulash soup and french toast and crepe kept me going back for more. Although my fashion dreams fizzled and many boutiques have gone, my love for Double Bay hasn’t changed. Like a fine wine, my affections have matured, I see beyond the glitz and glam. The beauty of life enjoyed in this ‘Ritzy’ harbourside suburb, has eternally won my heart. However, apart from the high quality shopping, I now know it's the people who live and shop in Double Bay, who make it what it is and the reason I love Double Bay. As a result of my continued affection for Double Bay, I organise social gatherings for the community - To attend the next event call 0414 690 218.

Description: In 7 seconds we know whether we like the person we've just met - or not. In 60 seconds we know whether we like the property we've just walked into - or not. The rule when selling real estate is that "You only get one opportunity to make a first impression." The key is to make buyers feel good in your home and fall in love with the lifestyle your home can offer. The more buyers can see themselves living in your home, the quicker you can sell it, and the higher price. So here are 7 proven tips to help you do just that:- Have professional cleaners clean your home from top to bottom including lights, windows, doors and ceiling fans. Identify a list of things in need of repair and mend them. Make sure all lights are working. Remove clutter in each room, veranda and the garden. This makes your home look bigger and more safe. Remove any unhealthy indoor/outdoor plants. Get some new plants. Patch and paint the walls in a neutral colour. Your cracked and dirty walls will turn buyers away. Use bed linen in a neutral colour so the room looks more spacious and relaxing. Remove any paintings/art works/decorations/personal objects/furniture that may not appeal to a broad group of people. They may make buyers feeling uncomfortable. Please feel free to give me a call if you would like to know more about preparing your property for sale.
