Why use a Buyer Advocate or Buyer Agent?

Many Australian buyers forget that the sales agent is working solely for the vendor.

It is the sales agent’s job - by law - to get the highest possible price for their client.  

They will be full of smiles and niceties when you attend the open home. However, they are not really there to assist you as a purchaser.  They are there to get you to pay more.

When you are competing with a skilled sales agent, you are dealing with someone that has a good deal more knowledge of the industry than you.

With that knowledge, shrewd agents can easily lull you into a false sense of security.

If you find yourself signing a contract without a licensed conveyancer or solicitor checking it first - or making hasty 'on the spot' decisions because you have been told there is already an offer on the table - you know you have fallen into this trap.

Quite simply, the sooner the agent gets you to meet their vendor’s (often lofty) expectations, the sooner they gain their commission and move onto the next listing.

By employing a good buyer’s advocate, you need never make hasty decisions or even talk to a real estate sales agent again.

They will do all the legwork when it comes to searching, assessing, and brokering a deal.

They will protect you from over paying and conduct all the necessary due diligence required.

With comprehensive research in front of you, you will be able to make an educated decision in a stress free environment.

Of course, not all buyer advocates are the same. There are good and bad in every industry.

What our Clients are Saying

Catherine worked tirelessly in finding me a great property at a good price. She did things that I wouldn't have done (hours and hours of legwork) and more importantly, couldn't have done (organising the purchase before anyone else had even put in an offer). When I was ready to give up, Catherine kept working. I'm certain that I never would have been able to buy the same property within 10k of what we eventually settled at.... David
The expertise you bring are excellent and helped us understand the process and what to do and what not to do. You discussed at the beginning that by using you it will save us money and in our instance and the current environment of Melbourne’s market I believe you saved us $100,000 or enabled us to get into a suburb which going to auction would have gone way over our limit. You worked tirelessly to help us purchase a home.... Karen
“You impressed us from the start, especially compared with the other buyers agencies we approached…” - Raj
