Success Stories

"We call Amanda our little pocket rocket. She is a result driven machine who puts in 150% every time to deliver on her promises to her clients.
Working with Amanda and her team has been a game changer for me and my community of renovators. I didn't ever think I would see the day when I would abdicate the responsibility of sourcing my projects to a buyers’ agent. I quickly discovered that Amanda is no ordinary buyers’ agent. She never fails to deliver on our challenging brief In fact most properties that Amanda finds haven't yet hit the market giving us the competitive advantage we need.
I am very grateful to Amanda because I know that when I recommend HighSpec Properties to our students that they will be supported to buy the right property at the right price which is a critical step in our process. I can trust that Amanda will be thorough in her process including the due diligence so that the buying a property is safe and seamless.
It would be remiss of me not to mention Amanda's big heart, we recently completed a charity renovation I didn't have to ask Amanda for her help, she immediately jumped in and donated her services and sourced the perfect property well under market value.
Her generosity contributed to the project’s massive $120,000 profit which is now on the way to Hands Across the Water to provides homes, education and love to around 450 orphans. Her energy and commitment to her clients deserves the highest acknowledgement."

I just wanted to send you a special note of thanks for helping me achieve my goal of purchasing an investment property this year! As you know I was initially attempting to conduct my own search in my spare time with no success – but with your market knowledge, enthusiasm and expertise we closed the search in seven weeks! Throughout the process I felt we were working together and whether you were personally conducting weekly searches, communicating your weekly progress, guiding me through an auction or finally negotiating a successful purchase price – you always acted in my best interest and generously shared your own personal touch! I can’t speak highly enough about your engagement and service and would definitely be happy to recommend you to anyone looking for assistance in purchasing a home or investment in the future. Thanks once again.

David Feldman, Johannesburg South Africa.Local Investor - 3bed, 2bath, 2car apartment in Bellevue Hill

After weekends of travelling into the city from the Blue Mountains to view properties, not knowing how they compared, what the real price would be and being caught in the crowds of people in a 30 minute viewing period we decided to talk to a licensed property buyer.
Our mortgage broker recommended Amanda Gould form HighSpec properties. After our initial meeting Amanda drew up a profile of what we were after, price range and areas and then got to work for us.
Amanda carefully selected properties that matched our profile, viewed them and then sent us a detailed report along with recommendations.
After no more than 2 weeks and only 4 viewings (as they were all in line with our requirements and all arranged by Amanda) we viewed a property that was yet to be marketed and made an offer. The whole experience was well worth the investment for the time alone it saved us, and due to Amanda’s contacts we believe we recouped our investment by purchasing off market.
Amanda also helped us during settlement and eventually collected the keys when the property settled and dropped them off to our managing agent.
We look forward to engaging Amanda when we are ready to buy our next investment property.

Nick Bowman, Sydney NSWLocal investor - 1 bed, 1 bath, 1 car in Camperdown

We are “baby boomers” who were living in a spacious property in the inner North West and wanting to downsize for a more relaxing retirement without the hassle of looking after the grounds and pool.

Our existing property sold just before auction and the purchasers requested a delayed settlement. Thinking we had plenty of time, we searched for properties for around 4/5 months inspecting around 50/60 properties and put in offers on a couple, but with no success. Our delayed settlement date was approaching and market prices were rising and we were preparing to rent for a while, which is not a good idea in a rising market.

A work colleague introduced us to Amanda and her team and they took over the search for us in a very professional manner, taking the stress out of the process.

There was no pressure on us to buy any particular property, but once we had decided on our favourite property, HighSpec finalised negotiations quickly, bringing contracts to our home for signature and taking them to the vendor’s agent for exchange in the evening to ensure we secured the property ahead of others in the “race”.

The exchange of contracts took place just over 3 weeks after we engaged Amanda and the purchase was finalised 3 to 4weeks after that, so we did not need to rent after all. We are now enjoying close proximity to cafes, restaurants, public transport etc. as set out in our original request to Amanda.

The fees earned by HighSpec were certainly more than offset by the keenly negotiated purchase price, the removal of stress and eliminating the cost for us to move into rented accommodation for a period.

We would certainly recommend Amanda and her team to anyone looking to purchase a property.

Working with Amanda and the HighSpec team is the best investment decision
I’ve ever made. After house hunting for months, not knowing what to look for or how to make a strong offer, I met Amanda. We met for a discovery session and purchased a fantastic apartment just 9 days later! The whole process was amazingly smooth and stress-free. Without Amanda’s expert knowledge, always ‘on’ approach to her clients and experience in making offers & negotiating with agents, I would still be looking for a property. Amanda went above and beyond to help me achieve my goals. I’ve already recommended Amanda to my friends and family and will be calling her again as soon as I’m ready to buy my next property.

Jenna Bradwell - Bondi NSWFirst Home Buyer - 2 beds, 1 bath, 1 car apartment in Bondi

It is fair to say that if Amanda had not been so determined and with an excellent understanding how the the property market works in the Eastern Suburbs, the deal would not have gone ahead. Thank You Amanda for securing our perfect property.

Dr David & Nadya Caminer, Watsons Bay NSWLuxury home buyer - 2bed, 1bath, 1car apartment in Elizabeth Bay

Amanda and the HighSpec team went consistently above and beyond in assisting me with the purchase of my 2 bedroom apartment in Bondi with panoramic ocean views. Their professionalism, expertise, and relentless approach meant they found me the perfect property, significantly below market value. Amanda’s industry connections, and fierce negotiation skills add incredible value to the process, not to mention her assistance with pre-purchase due diligence and preparation of detailed market research.
I’m hugely grateful for Amanda’s efforts and I am certain that, without her assistance, I would not have found a property which so precisely met my requirements, nor in such a short timeframe. I highly recommend Amanda’s services to anyone looking to purchase property in Sydney.

Amanda helped me purchase a property in Darlinghurst that was a silent listing. The great thing was she acted so quickly that it didn't go to market and I got an amazing apartment. Thank you for your help in securing the perfect property for me!

Michael Sears, Darlinghurst NSWInvestor - 2 bed, 1 bath, 1 car in Darlinghurst

Amanda was great – we signed a contract for six months and bought in six days!! So happy with the advice, follow up and attention to detail.

Ruth and Chris, Lane Cove NSWLocal Investor

“I had a small budget with money in my Self-Managed Super Fund and enlisted Amanda to help find a property within this budget. Not only did she save me time, which I am limited with, she found a perfect investment offering me a high yield. What I liked about Amanda was that she is an investor herself so knew exactly the kind of property I required.”

Tim Matcham, Lewisham NSWInvestor

After a year of wasting weekends looking at properties and missing out at auctions I was getting nowhere. Because I work long hours, many of the places I were sold before I even got to see them. A friend then recommended Amanda.
From our first meeting I was impressed with her knowledge of the Sydney real estate market, her contacts, her honesty and her professionalism.
She saved me time and exceeded my expectations with the service she provided.
Within a fortnight Amanda found a home that fitted my brief perfectly. I was amazed by how carefully she had followed the brief and her attention to detail.
The property I purchased was of much better quality than I thought I would ever be able to afford.
She arranged a viewing before it was advertised and when we decided it was the right one - moved quickly, and negotiated the purchase - making sure I didn't pay too much.
She did all the leg work with building inspections, solicitors and agents.
Buying a property in Sydney is a major stress but Amanda took care of the things that make it so difficult.
After settlement she even went and picked the keys up and dropped them off on a Friday night.
I would not hesitate to recommend Amanda for anyone seeking a buyers agent.
I have recommended her to friends and would use her again for any future purchase.

Hope Wells, Breakfast Point NSWHome Owner - 2 bed, 2 bath, 2 car apartment in Breakfast Point

I have watched Amanda Gould for more than a decade buying property, renovating property, selling property and generally obsessing about property. But as far as obsessions go, Amanda’s obsession has managed to benefit herself, her family, her friends and her clients by finding them suitable property. I have first hand knowledge of her operational style and know Amanda has great focus. She will not stop until she has achieved the outcome. I often recommend Amanda to my clients.
