“…Brenton was very helpful and responsive. He spent time to find out what is important to us and made this process very easy for us and relatively stress-free. With Brenton’s help we were able to purchase a property that ticks most of our boxes which seemed impossible before we engaged him…Thank you!”

This is why you engage a Buyer’s Agent! Our Buyer Agent helped his clients secure the perfect townhouse for their requirements in a suburb they weren’t even across.
Our clients were first home buyers that came prepared with specific requirements, a firm budget and a list of preferable suburbs. They had been watching the market and were struggling to find properties that matched their needs and budget.

We quickly determined that their budget and preferences were not aligned. Our Buyer Agent asked if they were open to recommendation on alternative suburbs that would meet their requirements. Oak Park (11 kms North West of Melbourne) was quickly agreed upon on as an excellent alternative to their original suburbs preference.

We commenced the search and promptly identified a great opportunity.
This property ticked nearly every box for them: proximity to the city, excellent school zone (including Strathmore School Zone) public transport, parks and bike paths on their doorstep, open living and a garage.

The property was scheduled to go to auction. To secure the property with the least amount of competition, we advised our clients to submit an unconditional pre-auction offer. The written offer triggered the property being placed on the market. The selling agent advised it was a multi-offer scenario. We agreed a ceiling price with the client and negotiated for the property and secured it for $627,000 before the auction.

This was a great outcome for our clients, their original requirements conflicted with their budget but we were able to secure them a property that ticked nearly every box for well under their maximum budget.
