Below you will find recent examples where we, as Buyers Agents, have helped people buy homes or properties in Melbourne.
Buy better with professional real estate buyers advocates in Melbourne.
The Esplanade, St. Kilda
Melbourne Buyers Advocates successfully represented a client in the purchase of an apartment on The Esplanade in St. Kilda.
Middle Crescent, Brighton
Absolute premium, A-Grade real estate. Bidding was very strong with 5 bidders, but Melbourne Buyers Advocates WON.
My shoulder may be weak a.t.m. (Cricket injury & about to have shoulder surgery) but my bidding was strong. Last minute buy before Easter!
A super light & bright, large beachside apartment in an 1888 Victorian era ex-hotel with two balconies (1 with city views, 1 with beach views), for a professional client, recently moved back from the UK.
Thanks to our great clients, @Mark Purves, @Jason Bell, and to RT Edgar Albert Park.
Just when you think you’re done and finished for the year, we’ve snuck one last purchase in!
This slick, über cool warehouse conversion townhouse in North Melbourne - BOUGHT today - on Xmas Eve! Merry Xmas!
Ashburton / Glen Iris
A really well designed, calming & stylish 4 bedroom family home in a great spot adjacent a huge park, bike track, easy freeway access, etc. for a professional couple with family of 3 children!
Thanks to our clients, Mark Purves, Jason Bell, and to Shelter Real Estate in Glen Iris.
Congratulations to all involved and an elegant new home for our lovely, happy clients, who are just delighted to be staying in Hawthorn East!
How do you stop an auction of a premium family home, in a strong market, without paying too much?
- Engage Melbourne Buyer's Advocates;
- Do your “Due Diligence” deeply and ASAP;
- Get in early (WELL before the auction - too late and you’re just helping the vendor set the reserve, and you also run the risk that other competing buyers have done their due diligence, got their money organised and are also ready to play), and
- Play HARD but FAIR.
BOUGHT for some VERY HAPPY Clients!
Last weekend, Melbourne Buyers Advocates were the Apartment Specialists!
Certainly, last weekend, when we bought this one, a funky & very well fitted out secure hideaway off a laneway only ONE block from über-trendy Smith Street, was technically done on Friday night between Paul Garson and the lovely Johanna Doherty - Jellis Craig!
We were both having dinner (at separate venues), texting, scanning, in front of our very understanding dinner companions (Thanks Jason Bell, @Mary Davey, Paul and Sally Garson)
Below you will see images of Paul Garson & Mark Purves, Buyers Advocates, bidding for property on The Block - Sky High 2013.
We had to pass a very stringent Registration & Approval process to even be able to bid for property on The Block!
This leads to this, leads to this, to this!
A deal done on this super bespoke build, and another happy client!
Great way to wrap up the year!
Very, very happy Melbourne Buyers Advocates snapping up this beautifully well designed family sized dual occupancy property in Bentleigh East after a post auction negotiation for our clients!
AND now for something completely different, today, Melbourne Buyers Advocates went ... 2 from 2 in 2!
Sounding like the late great Richie Benaud, we bought our 2nd Property from 2 auctions in Footscray in 2 weeks - both from local “preferred” Real Estate Agent JAS Stephens.
The Property showed solid capital growth over previous ownerships, great trendy central spot in Footscray, ultra low maintenance, and quite reasonable rental return from lovely sitting tenants (who want to stay on).
Another very happy Melbourne Buyers Advocates Investor Client!
Nunawading - Blackburn
For a client who was flying over Singapore at the time, en route to the UK.
A large land based family home, in a quiet Court, right on the border of Nunawading and Blackburn, with dual occupancy development potential.
"Purv" - Mark Purves on the job, in the field for Melbourne Buyers Advocates, buying a fabulous investment property in the heart of Footscray for our client today...
Cremorne - Richmond
Beautiful Sunny Day.
A great day to be out and about buying lovely properties for lovely Melbourne Buyers Advocates clients!
This absolute gem - very skilfully renovated circa 1880 classic double-fronted Victorian with rare double side-by-side undercover secure car parking in a wide leafy street in Cremorne.
A really well built single level, spacious villa in a small group of only 3, in a quiet tree-lined street.
Bought with a “sharp price” and great scope to improve the outdoor areas, and great “Value-Add” for our IT Professional client’s new home.
What a spectacular entrance driveway for a beautiful weekender/work from home small acreage property in Mornington bought by Melbourne Buyers Advocates over the weekend for a lovely executive couple!
EVERY time I’d drive down that driveway, I’d feel good!
A very stylish, secure and private, fully renovated townhouse with that all important “Land Component” in the “walk to everything Arts precinct” of Southbank.
A sunlit haven nestled in a beautifully quiet cul-de-sac and coveted family locale.
A perfect entry into the highly sought after Mornington lifestyle for our lovely first home buyer couple clients!
A massive solid double brick 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom house-sized unit, with huge kitchen, dining room, secure basement carpark & storage locker.
With tree-top views from several windows in a very well loved and beautifully maintained garden oasis an easy walk to an increasingly vibrant Burke Road Village and Gardiner Station.
They don’t Build them like this anymore!
A brilliantly located and stylish 2 Bedroom Apartment plus 1 Carpark & Storage Cage with North-facing balcony for an SMSF investor client.
Richmond - Commercial
A classic character laden architectural style, solidly built, and well maintained property, with wide laneway access at the rear behind a secure double roller door. Enormous development potential!
Our clever investor clients will do VERY well from this Investment – by immediately improving the property to increase the current Nett Yield, and later develop it to “Highest & Best Use” whilst obviously retaining that beautiful façade!
Glen Iris on Gardiners Creek Trail
We recently purchased this exclusively located single level villa unit for our client, a University Senior Lecturer with three main parameters in the brief:
- close to her family,
- close to good dog walking tracks, &
- with a nice outdoor area.
We ticked all three!!!
Ideal Armadale Downsize
Our clients with grown up children, were looking to downsize from a large 4 bedroom family home to something “just for them”.
Ideally located a very short walk to the High Street Armadale shopping precinct & Armadale Train Station.
It was hard work, but we negotiated a price for our Buyers Agency client of more than $100,000 less than the townhouse next door and around $200,000 less than the townhouse 2 doors down, both of which had also SOLD in the last 6 months!
A single level, low maintenance new home featuring a stunning kitchen with 60mm polished concrete benchtops, in a dog-friendly, secure and peaceful locale – a perfect buy for our lovely down-sizer client!
Orrong Road, Toorak
This very, very large & very well renovated apartment with beautiful tree top views from every window was bought by Melbourne Buyers Advocates for a South Australian Executive Client moving to Melbourne. Advertised for auction at a sensible price range, but our strategy was as soon as due diligence was completed, to pitch pre-Auction and catch the other buyers “napping” – which worked perfectly and our client is very, very happy!
Perfect Floor Plan in Hadfield
This wonderfully secure, light & bright, low maintenance property was the perfect first home haven for our client, a Health Professional Administrator, who loves gardening! With many North facing windows, & a great land size for her needs, this just ticked ALL the boxes!
A tastefully renovated family home with a beautiful character in one of the very best streets in Surrey Hills. This particular spot is underpinned by two huge English Plane Trees. All of those things, combined with the North facing indoor and outdoor living areas will see this property give our lovely Clients one heck of a lifestyle - and substantial Capital Growth!
Beautiful Bendigo Street, Richmond
Built into a genuine Victorian corner shop front, but very cleverly and masterfully built, this executive home ticked ALL the boxes on a very hard-to-find client brief.
How many quadruple garages does one find in Richmond?!!!
Lovely Melbourne Buyers Advocates clients, and a great working relationship with Jodie McCarthy of Jellis Craig – Richmond put this buy together.
Sensational Seddon with City Views
Our Melbourne Buyers Advocates Clients were “Downsizers”, but wanting a double garage for their gear for future camping adventures.
So “Lock & Leave” High Security was very important to them – as was low maintenance!
The Sky Deck, with city views – a fabulous bonus!
In a quiet pocket but with “Walk to Everything” ease – this property really will be a winner for our clients!
We got brought in as Peacemaker/Dealmaker/Diplomat after an awkward early interaction between our Clients and the Agent, partly caused by the Vendors being way too high on Price and maybe our Buyers being a bit too cheeky on “Starting Offer”… so they were just way too far apart and it got nowhere, and was every chance to be a lose/lose.
So after a lot of VERY Data Driven Price Research (as it was in an area I hadn’t bought in for about 18 months), MBA overcame some complexities on our Buyer side (so they were truly 100% ready to Buy), some detailed Risk Assessment Work (as our Clients had Sold, but not yet Settled their existing Property) and re-submitted on Signed Contract - the only way to Buy!
And after a bit of further traditional “Argy Bargy” on Price, we found that Win/Win!!
And believe me, this photo in NO way does justice to the Quality of the Build on this one, nor the fact the home is sitting on an impressive 1,525 m2 of land!
I'm not one to harp on too much about business & blowing our own trumpet but ...
We know what we do, we know we do it well, and our Clients reap the benefits. We normally just quietly go about our business picking off better properties for better prices, but this one, from this afternoon warrants special mention:-
Wide fronted, rectangular block, in a leafy, lovely, wide, very quiet street. Ultra low maintenace, triple garage and northfacing indoor and outdoor living.
Easy, hassle free rent out now for our investor clients, and a super easy dual-occupancy development site in 10+ years, when the land value has doubled and the house is getting really tired.
Happy in Hawthorn
This “well and truly oversized” two bedroom ground floor unit in a small group in Hawthorn just ticked ALL the boxes! In a superb location, just off Glenferrie Road, with 2 courtyards on Title (Front & Rear), and a large secure basement carpark incorporating a storage cage, it is an absolute Winner!
It was a great MBA Performance by Jason, under pressure – at a highly competitive Auction.
Needless to say, our client and her teenage daughter are very Happy!
