Ed Says – It’s Time to Sell!
It’s amazing the difference just a few months can make!
In the early part of 2019, we had news outlets reporting
doom and gloom for the Sydney property market, that
buyers had all but disappeared and prices were tumbling.
Yet here we are today enjoying an abundance of buyers
flocking into the market, banks loosening their hold over
lending and properties selling like hot cakes!
Having owned and operated one of Sydney South-
West’s most successful real estate agencies for more
than 30 years, we have witnessed time and time again
the changing nature of the market – the time to sow and
the time to grow.
Right now, we are back in a growth market and many
of our recent sales back this up. Once again, we are
witnessing a surge in buyer numbers at Open Homes
– just recently 26 families came through a Premiere
Open Home and the property was sold within two days!
That same week, we had a further five homes go Under
Contract and a prestige property that had been on the
market for some time was suddenly snapped up by a
So, the message is, if you are thinking of selling, NOW is
a great time to SELL! Don’t hold back!
If you have a dream destination of where you want to be,
let’s help you get there. If you want to upgrade, downsize
or find the perfect vacant block to build your dream home,
let us help you find it!
At United we are more than real estate agents. We are
in the business of helping you achieve your property
dreams or investment goals. Give us a call today and let
us help you get there. Talk to United, you’ll be Delighted!

Going Above & Beyond!
Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, you want to know that the Property Management Specialist
in charge of the property you own, or lease is exactly that, a specialist in their field who is prepared to
go above and beyond to ensure you receive the best service, advice and assistance. Here’s just a few
examples of how our Property Management Team go above & beyond for their clients:
Owner & Licensee in Charge (The Oaks Office)
• A landlord contacted Meagan on a Long Weekend Public Holiday (while she was on holiday), saying they
did not have enough money to cover the mortgage payment the next day. Meagan organised a manual
payment the same day, so their payment did not dishonour.
Business Development Manager, Sales & Property Management Specialist
• Organised and delivered at night, a generator to a tenant on a rural property after their electricity box blew
up during a storm. Nathan hooked up the generator that evening so the tenants had power and water.
Property Management Specialist
• Works tirelessly in the background, supporting staff and ensuring both tenants and landlord needs are met.
Property Management Specialist
• When a landlord gave a tenant a termination notice, Emma organised a new home for the tenant
• Assisted vendors in finding a rental property after they sold their home through United.
Property Management Specialist
• Spent hours of her own time creating a property video for her landlord, which resulted in a large
scale of enquiry and a successful leasing.
Property Management Specialist
• Assisted a tenant in relocating within 36 hours into another property when hers was flooded on a Public
Holiday and deemed uninhabitable.
• Researched, sourced and collected a cooktop from a supplier for a landlord and delivered it to a
property for installation after hours.
Thinking of leasing your home or investment? Here’s what others have to
say about The United Property Management team:
“In my long years of renting, I have never come across a Real Estate Agent as nice as Belinda Caprin. Any issues we had
were dealt with promptly, and Belinda went out of her way several times for us. United Realty has been the best Real Estate
I have ever rented through. It’s our pleasure to rent off people that care.” – Tenant, Austral
“Emma Fleming has gone above and beyond. I cannot thank her enough for getting our new property secured for us - we
absolutely love it. United Realty should be proud to have Emma as one of their employees, she is a great asset to their
company and team.” – Tenant, Rossmore
Refresh & Rejoice!
They say a change is as good as a holiday, right?
What better way to start 2020 than with an update of your home’s furnishings.
The team at The Little Styling Co. has five top pieces you can add to bring new
life into your home.
Adding a floor lamp or table lamp in your living
area is a great way to make a house feel like a
home. Perfect to be used day and night, they
provide a much softer glow than a typical ceiling
light. We always recommend using warm white
light globes as they really soften the mood within
If you’re like many of us and can’t keep a cactus
alive, then faux plants are the way to go! When
buying faux plants, it’s a worthwhile investment
to purchase high quality, real looking plants.
Remember, quality over quantity.
There’s nothing like introducing a rug to make
a space feel warm and welcoming in an instant.
We absolutely love jute rugs for their durability
(great for not looking dirty, particularly with pets),
and they work beautifully in a range of homes.
Alternatively, a woolen rug is luxurious underfoot
and there are a variety of styles and patterns
to choose from. We usually recommend opting
for a simple pattern, sometimes less is more.
Remember, the larger the rug, the larger the room
This would have to be one of our favourite ways
to make a home feel light and airy. We love how
they gently move in the breeze, how they soften
sunlight coming into your home, and how they
also provide a small amount of privacy. We love
white or off white in colour, as it works perfectly
with most houses. For an inexpensive option,
consider the sheer curtains from Ikea, they’re
approximately $70.00 for a pair – you won’t be
Fresh or faux, the options with greenery are
endless! If you’ve got a green thumb, real plants
really do look beautiful! A large Travellers Palm,
Fiddle Leaf Fig or freshly cut Dollar Gum in a vase
is a lovely way to add freshness into your home.
We love a good mirror to brighten a space! We
recommend placing a mirror within a room to
reflect a pleasant view outside. For a timeless look,
opt for a simple frame that isn’t too decorative.
Whatever you do, don’t place a mirror directly
opposite the front door, it pushes away all the
good energy that’s entering the home.

Hot Tips for Tenants!
The warm weather is here and while you may be relishing the long hot days, it’s also a great
opportunity to keep a list of “to-dos” on your fridge to help ensure you have a stress-free summer
as a tenant! Here’s 2 hot tips:
1. If you’re leasing a rural property with tank
water, did you know it’s your responsibility to
top up the tank? Drought conditions means less
rainwater in tanks, so put a note in your calendar
to regularly check your water tank levels. If you
see your levels are getting low, book a water
delivery truck well in advance so you don’t run
2. Drought conditions and ongoing
development in the Macarthur area has seen an
increase in native wildlife moving through some
suburbs, including snakes. To help keep snakes
away from a property you are leasing: Keep
your lawns regularly mown and your gardens
well-maintained and free of weeds. Ensure your
property is free of rubbish and rats/mice. If you
do spot a snake on your property, stay calm and
don’t provoke it. All native snakes in NSW are
protected under the National Parks & Wildlife Act
and only licensed snake collectors can remove
snakes from a private property.
To contact a licensed snake collector, visit
www.environment.nsw.gov.au or call 131 555.
Ladder to Success!
One of our longest serving staff members has just completed seven years with the United Team,
and she is only 22! Belinda Caprin started out in our former Casula office in 2012, working on
reception every Saturday as a Junior Administration Assistant. Over the years, she has diligently
worked up the ranks into her dream job – a full time Property Manager! Congratulations Belinda!
Q: What was your first role at United Realty?
A: I started working at the Casula office on
Saturdays with United at the end of 2012 when
I was 14. I folded letters, created key tags,
did filing, general office cleaning and helped
the agents with anything they needed. Once I
graduated from year 12, I started working full
time between The Oaks and Bringelly offices.
Q: What have your roles been at United over
A: Junior Administration roles, then I worked up
to the Database Marketing Coordinator role and
Private Treaty Files Coordinator. I have always
wanted to work in Property Management, so I
worked my way into the Property Management
Team on a part time basis and moved into
Property Management full time in 2019.
Q: What’s the advantage of having worked
for one company for so many years?
A: I feel as though I have a very good
understanding of how the whole office works in
every aspect as I have
been trained in most
Q: Do you own
A: Yes, an investment
property up near
in real estate makes
you want to get ahead
start for your future.
My next goal is to own
an acreage property.
