The renewed confidence in the Sydney property market was apparent when MasterChef semi-finalist Karlie Verkerk and her partner Adam Frazer sold their Paddington apartment for $808,000.

The topsy-turvy marketing campaign came with downward price revisions from Ray White Double Bay agent Nic Krasnostein.

The bullish price was achieved after four bidders competed once it was announced on the market at $770,000.

The couple had reduced their expectations for their Art Deco apartment three times since it was initially listed for sale last year.

They had been initially seeking $775,000 for its September 2018 auction.

It returned to the market two weeks ago with a $750,000 guide, which was then dropped to $700,000.

The one-bed unit on the third level of a 1950s-built Gosbell Street block has been modernised with white floorboards and a new kitchen.

Verkerk and Frazer paid $670,000 in 2015.

Verkerk made it to the semi-finals on the ninth series of MasterChef in 2017, coming third behind Ben Ungermann and eventual winner Diana Chan — with whom Verkerk has filmed an upcoming, secret project.

Verkerk he still cooks and recently worked on a campaign with ILVE.
