The Managing Director of StepInside, Charles has been a property professional in Canberra since 2005, whose sole focus has always been on the Canberra medium and high density market. He knows the distinct advantages that modern apartment living has to offer, and loves sharing those advantages with his clients. Over the past ten years, Canberra has evolved considerably, and he has already seen the highs and the lows of the Canberra market.
"Canberra is less volatile to outside forces than other Australian Capitals, but we still have our fluctuations. It is always important to keep up to date with the current market, whether you are buying, selling, investing or a current owner."
Charles believes strongly that the key to success in any market is the ability to read trends and react to the market quickly before you get left behind. The Canberra market can move very quickly, and a lot of agents don't react quickly enough. As somebody who has lived and grown up in Canberra his whole life, Charles understands the City and the reason so many choose to live there.
"Its very important as an agent to fully understand the area that you are selling in, a mistake that a lot of other agents have made in Canberra. If your agent isn't intimately knowledgeable of what makes Canberra so special, there is no way that they can achieve the maximum price for your home.
