What a journey
For Mark and Nicky Cadry, real estate was always their passion. The duo behind BuyEast dedicated their time to learning about the market – buying, selling, flipping and developing homes – until eight years ago when they decided to open the doors of BuyEast.
The Cadrys, founders and directors of the award-winning buyers agency, believe in the motto “it’s personal”.
They take a client’s story, align it with their local market knowledge and then negotiate like it’s their own purchase.
With a sharp focus on Sydney’s eastern suburbs, known internationally as one of Australia’s most competitive real estate regions, the BuyEast team has grown considerably to service clients over the years with insightful opportunities and in-depth knowledge of the area and the property purchasing process.
“Over just eight years’ time, we have grown our husband-and-wife business into a successful team of 12 experts who are all equally passionate about helping our clients find their next home, while delivering the high-end service that we strive to achieve.
“Our aim was always to help and guide people through one of the hardest decisions and largest purchases that most people will have to make throughout their life,” explained the Cadrys.
While awards and accolades were never the driving motivator behind the BuyEast team’s outstanding service, their hard work and dedication was recognised last year by the Real Estate Institute of New South Wales (REINSW) when they were crowned Buyers Agency of the Year at the REINSW 2021 Awards for Excellence.
“Every year the REINSW hosts the Awards for Excellence, a prestigious and respected industry event for which we have qualified as finalists for numerous years. Every year we strive to achieve more, and every year the bar is set even higher. Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would grow and succeed to be the best in the business,” said Mark.
The feeling is mutual
Last year, BuyEast purchased 104 properties. Of those, 41 per cent were purchased off-market. For some very happy clients.
“After years of property hunting, we finally found success with the team at BuyEast,” one client said. “Mark and Will took the time to really understand our search criteria and get to know our family. BuyEast provided us with opportunities and private inspections that we would not have had access to ourselves. They have a deep knowledge of the property market and excellent relationships across the industry. Our perfect home presented as an off-market opportunity which they assisted us to move quickly on. They negotiated brilliantly on our behalf and guided us through the process of purchasing from offer right through to final exchange. Mark and Will reduced the stress involved in finding our family home and shared our joy when it became ours. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending BuyEast and just wish we involved them earlier in our search.”
Other clients have described the team as “pleasant, positive and confident”, which is exactly what you need in a buyers agency.
“After spending six months house hunting in a highly competitive market with very low stock and feeling very disheartened after missing out on several properties, we decided to work with BuyEast to assist us in finding a home for our family. Ronan Chastain and Dave Petrini are unparalleled in their enthusiasm for property hunting and their dedication to finding the right property for their clients. In the time we worked with them, we felt like they became part of our family, and we found the process of house hunting much more enjoyable,” another client happily explained.
Yet another satisfied client shared that the BuyEast team was part of one of their biggest milestones to date as a couple, “buying our first home together”.
“After two-plus years of actively searching, the early months of 2021 were disheartening as we watched the slim pickings of properties in a demand flooded market get picked off pre-auction at what seemed ridiculous price tags,” the couple said. “After an initial quite narrow focus on a few streets in Bondi Junction, the team showed us various other highly suitable properties in other areas. We’ve ended up in Paddington and couldn’t be happier and, ironically, look back at those initial streets and think how perfect it is where we’ve landed.”
