Single Family Homes in the Northern Suburbs of Sydney
Sylvie and Mike Murrell have many happy memories of life in Johannesburg. But in their hearts, they know it's time to go. They can't ignore some sobering realities, at the top of the list is the high rate of violent crime. Worried how that stress could affect their kids, they've decided to make a bold financial move by relocating to Sydney, Australia. Property choices abound, but Mike wants the easy upkeep of a condo while Sylvie prefers a proper suburban home. And for a city used to welcoming immigrants, there are still culture shocks. The Murrell's savings of 6.5 million South African Rand converts to about $880,000. That won't afford them beach front living in Sydney's competitive market. To help make the numbers work, they've hired professional real estate agent Tanya Mottle.
