Where we operate

Northern Beaches

Northern Beaches

With world-class beaches and easy access to Sydney, Australia’s largest city, the Northern Beaches promise residents a wonderful lifestyle. In addition to its gorgeous beaches and coastal walks, the Northern Beaches offer a wide range of entertainment options, from beach shack cafes to hatted restaurants. Families and young professionals benefit from easy access to the city and a wonderful work-life balance.
Lower North Shore

Lower North Shore

There is something for everyone on the Lower North Shore, from waterfront apartments with stunning harbour views to character homes on large blocks. Although Mosman is undoubtedly the area’s crown jewel, many suburbs in the area can appeal to buyers of different income levels. Downsizers will love the modern luxury apartments, while professionals and executives will appreciate the large character homes near the CBD.

We understand that buying property is exciting. Whether you are investing in your first property, growing a rental portfolio or buying your dream home, these are big moments in life.

We also know that sometimes it can seem daunting to try and figure out what is a fair price, how to negotiate with agents or bid at an auction, and then deal with the settlement process once an offer is accepted.

At Lock & Key we work incredibly hard to provide you with a tailored service to find you a property to love, for the lowest price, with as little fuss as possible.

Here are a few things that we are really proud of and think you should know about us.

– We always make sure we understand what you want and tailor a personalised service to you.

– We never shortlist a property that we have not been in and love ourselves.

– We will be with you at every inspection – you are never on your on your own (unless you want to be!)

– We never take on more than one client at once with the same requirements.

– We have over 45 years experience in property and development negotiations.

– We negotiate very hard, but always fairly.
