Whether you are a First Time Buyer, Investor, or someone selling their property - LifeStyle understand that this is an important venture for you. There can be a lot of emotion attached to selling property and achieving the right price so that your next purchase can be made and first time buyers can often feel a mountain of weight on their shoulders when trying to secure their first home.
Property is more-often-than-not, the largest purchase (or sale) that we do as individuals and just knowing that your money is safe and your actions protected is huge peace of mind.
Most reputable agents are usually members of at least one "Governing Body" that require a strict code of conduct; failure to do so can have
consequences for the agent. Affiliating with a governing body has a much more all round affect for both the client and the agent.
The agent can be assured that they are providing a good, correct service to the client and the customer can be at ease knowing
their money and rights are protected.
