The Collective Hub founder Lisa Messenger has secured a $1.25 million pre-auction sale of her Birchgrove cottage.

It had been listed by Bresic Whitney agents Kate Lorden and Adrian Oddi who had an initial $1.2 million guide on the two bedroom Federation home.

The updated split-level home with 65 sqm space on its 102 sqm Gipps Street had preserved period charm.

It had been a $795 a week rental throughout 2015, but was offered vacant with a fitout by Mia Cipolla at urbanstylist. Lisa said it was possibly the favourite home she's ever lived in. 

Messenger bought the property in 2010 for $790,000. It had previously traded at $285,000 in 1995 when bought as an investment by orthopaedic surgeon, Merv Cross rugby league legend who played in the 1960's for South Sydney, Eastern Suburbs and North Sydney.

Her initial Bondi Beach acquisition was offloaded recently through Ray White agent Luke Sommen at $825,000 having been bought in 2007 at $539,000.

The Bondi Beach-based entreprenuer who seeks to assist entreprenuers retains a Bondi pad she bought for $650,000 in 2010.

Just this week she chaired a Virgin Airlines pow-wow about disruption and intrapreneurship with a panel of speakers that included Sir Richard Branson.  

Her Surry Hills Collective Hub business engages through magazine publishing, social media, events, brand collaborations, e-commerce and strategic partnerships. Her best-selling books include Daring & Disruptive, Life & Love and Money & Mindfulness. 

She's is putting a bit of the proceeds into her business expansion, and looking around Tamarama.
