About Beecroft

The heritage suburbs of Beecroft and Cheltenham are our “Patch”.  Trees are protected in these suburbs, preserving the beautiful village atmosphere.
Beautiful Beecroft at its Best

Ray White Beecroft real estate agency sells and rents commercial and residential properties throughout the Northern Districts of Sydney but specialises in the beautiful Beecroft and Cheltenham areas of Sydney’s Upper North Shore. Located 22 kilometers north-west of the Sydney NSW CBD, the area has superb road, rail and bus links in all directions.  By road, the M2 takes 20 minutes to the city if traffic is reasonable.  The F3 going north leads to the Central Coast and Newcastle, and the M7 connects to the M4 for Penrith and Bathurst, and the M5 south to Canberra.

From Beecroft station the train takes 41 minutes to reach the city, on the Northern Line.  The following links provide bus and train timetables:

Cheltenham, just to the east, is one of the best residential suburbs in Sydney.  A key attraction of the area is the superb educational facilities in the area, with Cheltenham Girls’ High School, Arden Anglican School, and other high profile schools.  Find out more at these links:

While these areas are our main interest, we also service West Pennant Hills, Pennant Hills, Cherrybrook, Kellyville, Epping and other areas.  We have even sold and rented properties in Ultimo, Parramatta, and Gosford.

Beecroft and Cheltenham are truly beautiful places to live with lovely tree-lined roads and village atmosphere.  Beecroft shopping centre is remarkably well equipped with restaurants and coffee shops, clothing and shoe shops, flowers, butchers, doctors, dentists, chiropractors and osteopaths, all in a quaint family friendly village atmosphere.  Ray White Beecroft is located opposite the only major franchised store, IGA, with good off-street parking behind the shopping module.

The community has an active organisation representing local issues, the Beecroft Cheltenham Civic Trust, whose website is www.2119.org.au and who have a blog BCCT2119.blogspot.com which discusses issues of local importance.

We participate in the Ray White Northern Districts group, whose E-Magazine is accessible at viewnow.com.au/raywhitenortherndistricts/

How we started and where we are going

Lydia Merrill, proprietor of Ray White Beecroft, has been in real estate for many years.  Initially concentrating on property management, in 2007 she moved into the Module shopping centre opposite Franklins supermarket (now IGA) as Ray White Beecroft and started a sales department with Douglas Macarthur as Sales Director.  The business went so well that early in 2009 the office was expanded to include the shop next door, to give an expanding sales team room to consult with customers in comfort.  Ray White Beecroft was the first local agency to install digital window displays, greatly increasing our local exposure and demonstrating our commitment to using all the resources available to market and lease properties.

Then, anticipating the demolition of the Module, the office relocated into 14b Hannah, right next door to the entrance of the new shopping centre.

Location 

The office on Hannah Street just outside the new construction multi-storey shopping centre has a first class position, prominently displaying the window cards on properties for sale or rent to the passing trade.  The staff are well known locally and locals often pop in to chat, or to take advantage of Lydia being a Justice of the Peace.

Because of this prime location your property gains maximum exposure with the high pedestrian traffic past our window display.

This photo shows the Ray White car parked by our office, in the entrance to what is now the new shopping centre.  We will replace the photo when the new centre opens in late 2017.  The only entrance to the three storey car park involves driving right past our office, and you can’t get better exposure than that!

Ray White Beecroft Front of Office

We advertise your property using the main websites including Domain.com.au and Realestate.com.au, and the corporate Raywhite.com website, combined with regular media exposure, prominent signboards and use of databases to match clients to properties.  All this reduces the time a property is on the market and reduces stress on our valued clients.

The Ray White Group

Ray White Beecroft is supported by the resources and reputation of the Ray White group with 1,000 offices across Australia and adjacent countries, so is a first choice for buyers from outside the area. Potential buyers understand the integrity, standards and reliability of the Ray White brand name. The longevity of the Ray White Real Estate group in the market place has built up trust with purchasers and vendors.  The Ray White group achieves total annual sales turnover of $30,000,000,000 – yes $30 billion!!  Ray White’s financial consultants are available to help you find the best finance package to fit your circumstances – they sourced nearly $3 billion of home loans last year. Should you need insurance to cover your property or contents, again Ray White can offer you the right advice.

Ray White Northern Districts is an association of the local Ray White agencies who work together to publicise our activities and often sell properties in conjunction, to increase the exposure of people’s properties to a wider market.  We produce a group E-Magazine that can be viewed at: http://viewnow.com.au/raywhitenortherndistricts/
