James Says Do Not Miss…….

Walking to work. Just fifteen minutes walk to the city the ever changing leafy streets of East Melbourne never cease to impress.  You’d be forgiven for thinking you were living in a quiet outer suburb, parks around almost every corner, discreet coffee shops, and fantastic public transport ensures that this suburb is popular with the locals. The MCG on our doorstep doesn’t hurt either making East Melbourne one of those sought after suburbs.

What our Landlords say…….

“Harcourts City Residential were terrific. I had a vacant Melbourne City apartment in a prime location for three months with my previous Melbourne city agent. I then spoke to James Edmundson from Harcourts City Residential. As soon as speaking to Dionne, I knew her professionalism and helpfulness would ensure my apartment would be tenanted very soon. Not only did Dionne find me tenants within 10 days, Dionne was able to market my apartment at the market price (which was my asking price) and not a much lower price that my previous agent had my apartment advertised at .Thank you Dionne and Harcourts City Residential my stress is finally over.”
