Liveability Specialist Request appraisal

Charles Bailey has been selling real estate in Sydney’s Inner West for almost 15 years. After spending most of his career working for another local but large residential real estate agency and winning some of the industry’s highest awards, in early 2014 he sought to find a new employer with values that aligned to his own. That agency is Urbane Property.

Charles prides himself on working hard for his seller and achieving success. His approach is holistic – he considers the seller’s needs and wants, the market conditions and the property’s unique strengths as he maximises the opportunity and achieves the best possible sale price.

A local resident for almost 20 years, Charles knows the local area exceptionally well. He also knows the property market and how to match buyers with properties. His ‘can do’ attitude means nothing is ever too much trouble. He delivers on the promises he makes and works with honesty and integrity.

As a residential property expert with a detailed knowledge of the sales process, everything always runs smoothly with Charles.

Having completed an award-winning professional development training course, he is one of only a handful of Liveability Real Estate Specialists in the Inner West. This qualification qualifies him to appraise an additional 17 Liveability Features, then market and promote these valuable benefits to buyers.

Charles also takes great pride in giving back to the local communities in which he works. During his career, he has helped local schools, charities and sporting groups to raise more than $400,000. He has contributed in a range of different ways, from hosting trivia nights and art auctions through to sponsoring sporting teams.

Charles looks forward to helping you realise your sale price and property dreams.

  • “Charles is an exceptional operator with the utmost integrity and professionalism. His knowledge of the local market is second to none. A great bloke as well. Thanks!”

    Peter, Denison St Newtown

    “I cannot recommend more highly an agent like Charles. His knowledge, his attentiveness, and his supreme effort to help me get my house ready for the sale was, in my opinion unsurpassable. He helped me to arrange cleaners, he recommended stylists, and he even got into his civvies to help me with some heavy lifting! What a guy, what an agent!”

    Pip, Denison St Camperdown

    “We had a good experience with Charles as our agent. He kept us fully informed as the campaign progressed so we had realistic expectations leading up to the auction. His negotiation skills on auction day secured the sale.”

    Peter & Sally, Oxford St Newtown

  • “Charles was really helpful throughout the campaign at 13 Septimus Street. He set a price guide that was more realistic that what I have experience through other agencies and he also amended the price guide as a result of feedback from the market. I found Charles to have integrity throughout the process and he was quick to respond to any requests that I had. I would highly recommend Charles as an agent.”

    Joel & Alice, Septimus St Erskineville

    “Despite not selling or buying in the Inner West for a decade we knew who the perfect person was to sell our house. His reputation as the best is well known even if you don’t deal in real estate, and our decision to not even consider anyone but Charles was repaid. From the first moment we met through to the auction, he was extremely professional, with a friendly nature. Nothing was left to chance, from the (free) use of their in-house stylist, to contracts, surveys and everything in between. Having Urbane carry out the building and pest survey, so potential buyers could access was a great strategy, and a time saver for potential buyers and us (only having one inspector visit throughout the whole process was very handy). From the very start we felt comfortable with the expected price, however thanks to the skills of Charles and his team we achieved a great result (beyond anything we ever expected). We couldn’t recommend Charles highly enough. He’s very competitive with fees/commissions etc, however way above average in his delivery. Priceless you might say!”

    Billy, Oxford St Newtown

    “Charles has got to be up there with the very best in Newtown when it comes to navigating the stressful waters of house-selling. We received prompt, no nonsense advice, a clear indication of costs and easy access to Charles and Urbane for feedback and any queries. The service included great guidance on the preparation of our house for the market and sensible tips on styling and de-cluttering. Charles was also good at keeping our feet in the ground, a steady hand that’s important in such a volatile market, and not getting carried away with every new auction result in the lead up to ours. A confident and heartfelt recommendation from me.”

    Kevin, Oxford St Newtown

  • “I recommend Charles (and Diana) to anybody wanting to sell a property in the inner west. He is a pleasure to deal with, down to earth with no bull which is rare nowadays. His experience shines through – this is not the first time I have dealt with him and it won’t be the last. Thanks Charles – you orchestrated a great result for me.”

    Ian, Lennox St Newtown

    “Charles (&Diana) were supportive and helpful through the whole sales campaign. Charles’ price guide was spot on. At all times he was very upfront and clear. He has such knowledge about this area of the inner west and I recommend his services to potential vendors.”

    Prue, Oxford St Newtown

    “I interviewed 4 other agents before selecting Charles to sell my property. Charles’ experience and specialised understanding of the target market for my property stood out at the start, and his estimated price range for my house proved spot-on with the resultant sale price. Charles was easy and straightforward to deal with, and I very much appreciated his professionalism and solution-oriented approach. Definitely recommended.”

    Louise, Derby St Camperdown

  • “Charles was effectively managed to work in the best interests of me as the purchaser as well as those of the vendor. His communication was impressive and he helped us get a deal over the line pre-auction. Would highly recommend if I was selling my house, has much more integrity than some agents I have had experience with.”

    Emily & Enzo, Australia St Newtown

    “Charles was great! He put our minds at ease throughout the campaign. He kept us well informed and would always answer our phone calls when ever we had a question – no matter what time of the day. We highly recommend using Charles if you’re looking to sell in the Inner West.”

    Ryan and Kristy, Australia St Camperdown

    “I contacted Charles knowing that he had been in the Inner West for some years. He is a solutions based person; and he contacted a number of interested parties and my property was sold within the week, for a reasonable price. He stayed in touch to advise where things stood and I believe was fair and reasonable for both myself and the purchaser.”

    Penny Fraser, Australia St Camperdown

  • “Absolutely recommend Charles for his calmness, thoroughness and principled, responsible attitude. With Charles being a local resident, involved in the way things happen in the community and having an ongoing commitment to the place makes it a different experience.”
