Welcome to Buyers Advocate, Your Trusted Buyers Agent in Melbourne

At Buyers Advocate we specialise in the Melbourne market and work with all levels of residential home buyers and investors to achieve their lifestyle objectives. Our vision is to positively contribute to the lives of our clients.
We want to create a lasting impact on every client we work with which is why the majority of our business is repeat and word of mouth.
Our knowledge of the property market and where the best opportunities exist, together with our industry relationships & negotiation skills put our clients at a distinct advantage to other buyers.
If you are an investor we only source properties that fit in the top 5% of investment grade options that consistently outperform the market.
We also offer a boutique property management service as well as a vendor advocacy service if you need help to sell.

Understanding the Melbourne Property Market

At Buyers Advocate we have the local knowledge to deliver the best outcomes.
This familiarity with the local area enables us to advise on the impact of; being located in the best streets, being in certain school zones, the infrastructure close by, the gentrification that is occurring and the people that are moving into the area.
This knowledge is all critical in making the right decision, whether it is a home or an investment property.
Also all real estate agents/agencies are different and unless you have knowledge of their modus operandi you are likely to be left behind when it comes to positioning yourself ahead of other buyers and negotiating the best outcome.
Buying property is all about opportunity cost, it is not a product you pick off the shelf. If you are buying something it needs to stack up against other options that are available to you.
Be wary of a Buyer’s Agent that wants to sell you something, whether it be off the plan or property hotspots that they do not reside in. At Buyers Advocate we offer a tailored approach to your needs.
