Licensed Estate Agent
More than two decades after falling in love with the inner suburbs tree-lined streets and auctions on a crisp autumnal morning, Leigh Chant is more convinced than ever we live in one of the world's best cities.
An astute negotiator Leigh would know better than most. From Kew and Carlton to Taylors Hill and Kensington, Leigh's experience of working in virtually every suburb within a 10-15km radius of the CBD has reaffirmed her knack for selling properties anywhere or any time.“For me, it doesn't matter where the property is.
Because, when all is said and done, any home sale is about the vendor, property and the buyer, and it should be a win-win for all parties. Each should have complete confidence they have been treated as an equal and with respect.” Keeping open the lines of communication is central to her philosophy, which also relies heavily on patience, trust, flexibility and perseverance. “I often tell buyers 'The day you buy a property is the cheapest that it is ever going to be' so sometimes as a buyer you have to stretch yourself and think ahead in terms of the price and your lifestyle requirements in 10 years' time.
“You only have to think back 15 or so years when single-fronts in the inner north were all under $200,000 and double-fronts were $220,000 or $230,000. You'd be kicking yourself now if you missed out by not paying that extra.” A keen squash and tennis player whose children have also been active in local sport, Leigh's enthusiasm is fuelled by the area's lifestyle benefits.
“With its parks, schools and waterways, the North West has been transformed as an ideal place to raise a family. Aberfeldie and Maribyrnong are prime examples, and that is only affirmed by Flemington recently being mentioned on Channel 9's Today show as one of Australia's real estate hotspots.”

Thanks for the sale of the apartment at Docklands. The price achieved was way beyond my expectations.
I also appreciated the way you made things so easy for me whilst I was working overseas during the sale period. That took away all the normal stress involved in selling a property.
Leigh, this is the second time you have sold property for me - both whilst I was working overseas – and both times the price exceeded my expectations and both times the sale process was totally stress free.
So, thanks to you and all the team at Rendina. I will certainly recommend any of my friends and colleagues to contact you if they are considering a sale.
Regards and Best wishes
