About the North Shore
The North Shore is considered one of the most desirable areas to live in Sydney.
The North Shore is traditionally split into two regions – the Lower North Shore and the Upper North Shore. The Lower North Shore starts immediately to the north of Sydney Harbour and is bounded by the Lane Cove River to the west and Middle Harbour to the east. Chatswood is regarded to be the most northerly suburb. The Upper North Shore stretches to the north of Chatswood up to Hornsby.
The area is well known for large family houses, gardens and parkland and is often referred to as the “leafy North Shore”. The North Shore features quality schools, numerous shopping options, parks, sporting clubs and other amenities.
A wide range of housing styles are evident on the North Shore. Federation and Californian bungalows, modern architecturally designed homes, semi detached houses and townhouses are common. Apartments range from small art deco apartment blocks through to large high rise buildings.
Domain’s Liveability Sydney Study was last undertaken in 2019. It ranks suburbs based on 19 desirability factors such as access to employment, transport, congestion, education and lifestyle factors. This time of the Top 20, 11 were North Shore suburbs. See details here.

Here’s what our clients have to say about us
Thank you Henry, thank you Homesearch Solutions for turning our dream into a reality. We couldn’t be happier with our new home.
Despite being open to various options we were very particular of what we required from any one and so not the easiest of client to service. Henry always treated us with the utmost understanding, respect, professionalism and friendship. He supported, lead and assisted us throughout our journey which in retrospect was surprisingly short.
Once we had made our decision the speed at which Henry made our purchase a reality was something you could only get from the seasoned capable professional that he is.
Following a recommendation from a friend, we decided to get in touch with Henry to see how he might be able to help. In a rapidly-rising market, we were really struggling to find the time and energy to devote to house-hunting – but more importantly, we were fast becoming priced out of the market. Henry was fantastic from start to finish ! He was helpful, knowledgeable and – perhaps more importantly – patient. He understood our position and gave clear, concise advice and feedback – while remaining professional and impartial. So – within only a few months, he had sourced a property (a non-advertised, off-market listing which we would never have had access to if looking ourselves) and not only was it well within budget, but in a prime location. We would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Henry Wilkinson and Homesearch Solutions (in fact, I have already mentioned them to several people) and in fact, I can now not imagine attempting to purchase a property without their services. We have saved time, money and a whole lot of stress.

We had a wonderful experience and a great result using Henry from Homesearch Solutions who helped purchase our home on Sydney’s North Shore. Henry’s knowledge of the property market and his excellent negotiation skills allowed us to get a great deal done prior to auction. With such a large personal investment it gave us great comfort to have an experienced professional working 100% for us on the deal. We only looked at the properties that fitted our needs, avoided having to deal with agent after agent and simply didn’t waste any precious time at all. Ultimately Henry ran the entire process in a seamless manner for us and it was great. We couldn’t recommend Homesearch Solutions more highly.

Having transacted with Henry many times, I can highly recommend Henry as an extremely diligent, professional and experienced Buyers Agent. Henrys research and negotiation skills are second to none and he is my first choice to refer to anyone who requires the services of a buyers advocate – Henrys clients needs are always at the forefront in his dealings
We appreciate the excellent service that you provided us on the purchase of our property. Your knowledge of the market, analysis of the properties inspected and good negotiating skills proved invaluable. We would be happy to user your services again and have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else who is interested in buying a property in Sydney.
H.M. Chatswood NSW
Living in the Southern Highlands, Henry has helped us buy a house in the Sydney market this year. Working as a team with Henry, we quickly identified our target suburbs and then worked realestate.com.au hard. Henry checked many possible houses and invited us to see those which fitted our brief. Henry made checking and buying our new house quick and easy. We are grateful for his help. Bravo Henry!
N.L. Killara NSW
We were referred to Henry through a very satisfied friend who had purchased a property in Sydney with his assistance. We were looking for a period family home in a very specific area of the Lower North Shore. We had been watching the sales results and were concerned at how competitive the market was. We also have small children and it wasn’t easy for us to view houses and attend auctions.
Henry was invaluable. He showed us houses that were yet to be advertised, he helped us negotiate when we were overseas, he gave us advice as to a “limit” to pay for properties (in case one was forced to sell in the short term). When we did find the right property, he ensured we had our ducks in a row and kept the pressure on the agent until exchange.
We also appreciated Caroline / Henry’s follow up, ensuring the house was vacated in time for our move, and support during the stressful settlement period. I would not hesitate to recommend Henry and Caroline.
C.N. Mosman NSW
I wholeheartedly recommend Homesearch Solutions to anyone keen to avoid the stress of negotiating the purchase of a new home or investment. After missing out on several properties in recent weeks, I engaged Henry Wilkinson to negotiate the purchase of a house in Pymble on my behalf. He not only saved me much stress, but his professionalism and good advice ensured that I understood well what I was buying and that I paid a fair price, and most importantly, that I got the property. I know that I would not have achieved this without his support.
K.H. Pymble NSW
First and foremost this is to thank you most sincerely for your sterling efforts on our behalf in bringing our house purchase to a successful conclusion. We are really grateful to you for handling the whole process, the fact we got there in the end is due in no small way to your professional knowledge and diplomatic probing. Your ever cheerful advice and wise counsel during the unexpected twists and turn of events since initial viewing have been greatly appreciated by us both. With best wishes and renewed thanks from us both.
M.W. Wahroonga NSW
We found Henry Wilkinson of Homesearch Solutions a pleasure to deal with. He made home inspections so much easier as we didn’t waste time looking at properties that didn’t meet our needs and he was relaxed and friendly to deal with. I have no hesitation in recommending Henry Wilkinson and Homesearch Solutions to anyone looking to buy a property.
P.B. Chatswood NSW
Thank you for all your excellent advice and guidance during the time while we were searching for a property

Henry, thank you for securing both properties in record time! I could not have done it myself under the circumstances.
