Julian Hasemer is one of the industry’s most respected agents, having been listed in the top 100 agents nationally two years running at the Real Estate Business Industry Awards and consistently selling over $120m worth of property annually.
Keen to develop a new breed of real estate agents who value personal relationships above quick sales, he developed First City in 1998 (now known as 1ST CITY Hasemer + Caldwell.Eyles) and hasn't looked back. Julian has always prioritised quality relationships over high-quality sales, and has implemented this concept at 1ST CITY where his approach is that ‘no team member will push a sale at any cost’.
But it’s more than just his approach that has established Julian as an industry leader. Known for his commercial authority and regularly exceeding sales expectations, his passion for property is evident in his ability to read the property market and stay one step ahead of industry benchmarks. His articulate, well- developed communication skills enable him to negotiate agreements that others can’t, setting numerous street and building records. And regardless of whether clients are buying or selling, Julian provides honest, forthright advice.

We became aware of Julian's work through neighbours who had worked with the team at 1st City when selling their apartment. From the initial discussions through to the eventual sale of the property we found Julian and the team were professional, knowledgeable, considerate and most importantly open and ethical in their approach. Throughout the sales process Julian kept us informed, provided sound advice and we greatly valued his market knowledge and perspective. The property was on the market for 2 - 3 weeks and sold prior to auction. It was refreshing to work with such professional in an industry that has not always enjoyed the best reputation. We are delighted to have the opportunity to recommend Julian and the entire team at 1st City, Double Bay.
1/56 Bellevue Road, Bellevue Hill - Mr A & Mrs L Ajuria
The pre-sale, sale and settlement of my home at 1/589 New South Head Road was conducted in a truly professional manner by Julian who you will find goes the extra yards to cover all the bases. In reality, there are not many people in his profession who involve themselves providing the personal input, which ensure the best outcome for the vendor. Accordingly, I would have no hesitation in recommending him to act for any seller.
589 New South Head Road, Rose Bay - Mr Feitelson
Julian has a confidence that comes with genuine experience. He also clearly understands the value of shooting on both sides of a transaction. As a result he quickly gained the trust of myself and the other 4 (sceptical of agents) sellers in our transaction. The smoke and mirrors show many agents employ is simply absent when dealing with Julian and his team.
Throughout the transaction Julian went well beyond what was required of a selling agent, providing real world commercial advice. This advice from Julian coupled with a great lawyer made a complex transaction close successfully, against the odds. If you are serious about selling your property I would highly recommend engaging Julian. Yes he has the database and marketing smarts, but more importantly he has integrity which will deliver a great result.
7 Loftus Road, Darling Point - Mr Paul
I met Julian in 1999 when I first had dealings with him, and I've found that he has always done more than most and has been honest and trustworthy. We have formed a good friendship and I've dealt with him a few times since. My son and other members of my family have also dealt with him and are all of the same opinion. His whole team is very experienced and I have no qualms with recommending him or his team to anyone needing any form of real estate advice.
Paddington - Mr M & Mrs L Harvey
Thank you for the work you and your team have done for Norman and Barbara. They are pleased with the result and enjoyed working with you!
3 & 6/47 Yarranabbe Road, Darling Point - Mr Fitzgerald
I would also like to say thank you for the exemplary way you conducted the sale of the Christian Science Church in Rose Bay. I am the treasurer of this Church and when we decided to sell, I wanted to suggest an agent with integrity and a high degree of professionalism. I asked Nick Hogan, Solicitor for suggestions and he spoke so highly of you that I was happy to put you forward to the board members, who by the way were most impressed with your presentation. The final price achieved from the expressions of interest campaign was fantastic and the whole project was, from start to finish, seamless and problem free. In conclusion, Julian, I wish you every success for the future. You are certainly our preferred agent for any future property transactions.
Rose Bay + Darling Point - Mr K & Mrs L Mortlock
I have known Julian for over 20 years, when he just started his business. As a developer in the past 20 years I have built and he has sold many of my projects as well as my private residence. All experiences with him were excellent. His work ethic is of high standard and very professional. Julian is a rare breed among real estate agents - he is always honest and does not make false promises. I would recommend Julian to anyone looking for an honest professional.
Double Bay - V Kosinar
I have known Julian Hasemer over a short period of time. As our exclusive agent selling our prestige apartments on 23 Manning Road, Double Bay, Julian strikes me as a highly spirited individual, full of vitality and energy the essence of what a leader of the pack posses, leading his team. It is with these traits plus his most friendly and personal demeanour that formed that important element in selling our property to clients. I would also like to add that Julian possess great connections in the industry as well. To elaborate, he managed to cut us a deal with the publishers for a great advertising package as part of our marketing campaign. Furthermore, Julian has a great team of subcontractors who are very dependable as well. I have worked with quite a few Double Bay agents, and Julian comes up as one of the top men!
23 Manning Road, Double Bay - Y Chu
I wish to thank you for the professional way you conducted the selling campaign and eventual pre auction sale of our property. Your advice and insight into changing market conditions were insightful and accurate. I will most certainly ask you and your company to negotiate the purchase and sale of any future property transactions I am party to.
Queens Park - D Meskin
I'm extremely pleased with the result that 1st City Hasemer + Caldwell.Eyles obtained on the recent sale of my Point Piper residence. Working with both Julian and Matt was extremely pleasurable as they were in communication with me daily with an update or even a friendly greeting. My expectations were managed thoroughly at all times regarding the sale and I would have no hesitation in recommending 1st City to those that are seeking an agent that is results oriented, honest and passionate about selling your home.
Point Piper - S Czeiger
Just thought I would say thank you to you and David and the team at 1st City. Firstly for your patience during the negotiation for our purchase in Double Bay, we appreciate that you were available at all times and to open the property to us on unscheduled times was a great help to us in our final decision. With our purchase underway, it was time to sell our existing property at Darling Point. You also carried this out in a speedy professional manner, even though it was in an unusual complex, and you achieved for us a very good result. We are very happy with our new home the apartment and the position is outstanding. If the occasion arises, we will certainly be enlisting 1st City to market our property for us.
Darling Point - D Cribbin
I found Julian took personal control of the sales process of my property at every level but also had a good back up at First City Realty. He was a good communicator who gave regular updates while selling my property. I was never left out of touch and as a result had realistic expectations. He is also very patient and tenacious and works hard to maximise the outcome for his clients. I was very happy working with him on a personal and professional level.
Darling Point - G Lipshitz
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your hard work and dedication in achieving the successful sale of 'The Golden Mile' at 247 O'Sullivan Road, Bellevue Hill, a boutique development of 10 apartments. Throughout the sales campaign I was kept informed of all buyers including feedback and received phone calls almost every day keeping me updated. Julian and Ashlee conducted the sales with professionalism and integrity, achieving outstanding results. I would highly recommend them to any potential vendors wanting knowledgeable agents who work hard to exceed vendor's expectations.
247 O'Sullivan Road, Bellevue Hill - Michael Baranov
We have NEVER had a more professional and concerned Real Estate agent managing our affairs. Thank you for all your help and advice. Please also thank your assistant she was superb. And thank you for your housewarming gift - a wonderful and thoughtful choice.

Julian has acted as Property Partnerships Pacific P/L exclusive sales and marketing agent since 2002. During this time we have worked with Julian and his team at 1st City Hasemer + Caldwell.Eyles to complete 3 prestige residential developments in the Eastern Suburbs with sales totalling in excess of $45m. Julian brings an unsurpassed depth of knowledge of the Eastern Suburbs luxury residential market to our development team. We rely heavily on his advice in not only sales and marketing matters but also during the design stage of our projects to ensure the products we produce match market needs. We have found that Julian is one of very few real estate agents who truly understands the unique requirements of extended sales campaigns associated with marketing projects. I have no hesitation in highly recommending 1st City Hasemer + Caldwell.Eyles for any luxury residential property sale assignment in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs.

Paddington - Mr A & Mrs A Fraser
I am writing to commend and thank 1st City Hasemer + Caldwell.Eyles for their involvement in the sale and marketing of our project "Seno Vista" at 4 New Beach Road, Darling Point. I bought this un-renovated apartment building from Julian, and then engaged him as the sales agent for the completed project. I would like to highlight the long term commitment Julian showed to this project of 3 apartments from start to finish. Julian was involved in all aspects of the project from recommending invaluable contact, providing feedback on the layout/floor plan and giving us insight into the needs of apartment buyers. Throughout the sales process we were provided with weekly progress reports, daily phone calls, and weekly face-to-face meetings. At all times we were kept informed, and Julian's knowledge and negotiation skills were evident in the results achieved.
Overall we were impressed with both the professionalism and integrity displayed by 1st City Hasemer + Caldwell.Eyles and the friendly manner in which they conducted themselves. The pleasant, no nonsense attitude give comfort to both buyers and vendors alike. We would not hesitate to enstrust the sale of our future property with Julian Hasemer and 1st City Hasermer + Caldwell.Eyles.
4 New Beach Road, Darling Point - G Hamlin
Selling a property is usually considered a stressful thing. Julian Hasemer, with his local knowledge and understanding of the property market, his buyers and sellers, together with his macro knowledge of the real estate market in general helped to eliminate that stress and make the process of selling easy. Julian adopted a no fuss approach and without resorting to a costly campaign, went to his large database of clients to begin the search for a suitable buyer for my property. His friendly, relaxed and yet confident and professional demeanour made dealing with him a pleasure throughout the relatively short period it took him to get the job done. From my first meeting with Julian to show him the property to exchanging contracts with the buyer was less than 3 weeks. His advice was sensible and he ensured that he got me the best possible price. I would most certainly use Julian again in the future and recommend him to others in the market unreservedly.
Bondi - L Grunfeld
We have just completed an unusual purchase and immediate resale of our apartment. Further complicating what was already an very trying and emotional charged period, the market changed dramatically. Julian maintained his absolute confidence that a sale would be achieved, held his nerve in the face of our scepticism and got the job done. He is a fine real estate agent but a lousy golfer.
2/147 Victoria Road, Bellevue Hill - M Redhill
If you want to sell your unit at the right price, Julian Hasemer and his experienced team at 1st City is the "go to agent" in the Eastern Suburbs. We were overseas when we put our unit on the market, at a distance and inconvenient time zones makes communication difficult for vendor and agent alike. Julian excelled, preparing marketing, signage and brochure at speed and numerous other tasks quite outside of his contract. We sold the unit prior to auction, with Julian negotiating an additional $25,000 on top of above market price. I highly recommend his agency.
13/3 Wentworth Place, Point Piper - T Garland
Selling your property is always a difficult decision, we chose Julian Hasemer from 1st City Hasemer + Caldwell.Eyles and cannot express how pleased we had made that choice. Julian followed through everything we discussed re: the sale, he made it easy for us. We recommend Julian and his team, a professional group!
Bellevue Hill - B Brown
I want to thank you for the successful sale of our home. It was not only quick, it was efficient and at a price which pleased! This very satisfying experience got me thinking: what makes a top real estate agent? Is it their buyer - charming personality? Is it their depth of local knowledge? Is it their efficiency in dealing with the essential detail of what is the sale of a most significant asses you home? Or is it that all of these qualities must be present if you are totally satisfied with your agent? And you Julian have them all in spades. Thank you from a very satisfied customer!
Bellevue Hill - K Johnson
Peter and I would like to thank you for successful marketing of our Darling Point Apartment. It was a pleasure dealing with you. We found that you were professional, highly reliable and dealt with us in a friendly and warm manner.
Your persistence and "never say die" attitude clearly makes you the successful agent that you are. We wish you all the very best and we have no hesitation in recommending your services to any of your future clients.
Darling Point - Mr P & Mrs S Spira
The entire process was relatively pain and stress free and during the process we felt a strong affinity with Julian which was a welcome addition, like dealing with a member of ones family. Good luck Julian, you deserve your success because of your caring and helpful attitude.
Darling Point - Mr C and Mrs A Gordon
Julian - You named the price, we were all cynical but "nothing ventured/nothing gained"... and you landed it.
Darling Point - P Delany
I have had the pleasure of dealing with Julian on a number of property transactions. Julian's professionalism and integrity is second to none. He provided me with exceptional service and was always ready to assist. Julian went out of his way to obtain the best possible price for us when selling our property. I would highly recommend Julian to anyone looking to sell their property.

95 Wentworth Road, Vaucluse - R Gellert
I appointed Julian Hasemer of 1st City to sell my house at 28 Courtenay Road, Rose Bay, commencing a marketing campaign at the start of February this year. I appointed Julian and his team after meeting two other real estate agents firms, as his approach was refreshing and energetic, along with a proven track record in the Eastern Suburbs. I referenced Julian prior to his appointment, and heard he was very good at negotiation and 'getting a property sold'. Julian was meticulous in the detail in getting the house ready for sale, making sure it presented at its best. Demonstrating Julian's attention to detail, he met with the stylist and the photographer, to ensure furnishing and photography went as planned. Julian's valuation of my home was identical to the other agents I met, so clearly he had a good grasp of values in the area. Julian was always at the 'open' for my house, and provided detailed honest feedback. Phone calls and emails were always answered in a timely manner. After 2 weeks of the sales campaign I received an offer I was happy to accept, so I did not go to auction. Julian ensured this was the highest offer available, after having spoken with all interested parties. Since the offer was accepted, Julian has been in contact as required. I have been pleased to work with Julian and his team at 1st City, and would highly recommend them to a home seller in the Eastern Suburbs.
28 Courtenay Road, Rose Bay - R Belsten
Julian and his team at 1st City did a wonderful job selling our house recently, achieving a result that exceeded our expectations. Throughout the process, Julian was very clear in communicating the rationale for his approach, and regularly kept us informed of progress. He provided sound advice and did not leave any stone unturned in securing a successful sale. We appreciate Julian's transparency and would recommend him to anyone looking to sell their property in the Eastern Suburbs.

We were impressed by Julian's professionalism and keeping us informed of prospective buyer feedback, giving us invaluable advice how to present our property for the best outcome of the sale.

17 Streafield Road, Bellevue Hill - L Bendersky
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the way in which you handled the sale of my mom's apartment. From start to finish, you conducted yourself in an exemplary manner. Besides realising a really good sale price for us, you kept us fully informed at every step along the way. There were no nasty surprises. You helped to make what is often a very stressful process all the more manageable. The sale occurred at a time when the market had taken a slight dip and we feel that your professionalism was what made the difference. You have a deep knowledge of the Eastern Suburb property market in general and Double Bay in particular. Please rest assured that we will come to you for any future sales in the area.
9/45-51 Cross Street, Double Bay - G & M Lubotzsky
I wish to express my appreciation for your most professional assistance in the sale of our family property. As you know we had a relatively short period of time to prepare the property for sale following the departure of the tenant and you and your staff were invaluable through that process. Everything was efficiently arranged and as a result, we were able to present the property in the best possible light. During the campaign, you kept us fully informed of all development and most particularly, as to the level of interest and feedback from prospective buyers. Your reports were detailed and informative. Once at the negotiation stage, I felt under no pressure and was able to make a considered decision based upon all the feedback and facts as relayed to me. you left me in no doubt that at all times you were fairly and diligently representing my interests. As a result, we achieved an excellent results and one which exceeded my expectations.
