Buy better with professional real estate advocates Melbourne with MBA.
less stress, better result
After selling our home in country NSW, we were finding it very hard to break into the Melbourne market. House buying is not something you do every day of the week. Paul gave us the confidence to go for a property that we thought was out of reach.
His highly skilled negotiations secured a price we didn’t think was possible. The savings more than paid for the fee. Paul also reduced our stress significantly, and we had his professional advice on property value plus its potential for further improvements.
No matter your budget, we highly recommend Paul and his team at MBA.
the expert on my side
The property I was renting came up for sale. I was nervous about making an offer as the asking price was higher than I felt comfortable with. I felt at a disadvantage because the selling agent and the rental agent were the same. I spoke with a couple of buyer’s advocates, none of which instilled the confidence that Paul immediately did. He performed exhaustive due diligence and provided a comprehensive report. We agreed the property was a good buy if we got it at his suggested price. Within a week of my first call to Paul, he had negotiated and signed a contract for a price within my budget. He secured the deal at $20K less than the asking price, and $12K less than the neighbouring apartment sold for – and it was completely unrenovated and mine is! I highly recommend Paul. He is an expert in all things property!
a smarter better buy
We liked two houses around $550,000. Paul provided us with a report on both, plus clear reasons why one was a much better long term buy. He made a written offer on the better house, using his knowledge of how to tempt the agent and the vendor with a quick, written, firm offer and a good deposit attached.
We got the best house for $45,000 less than we were willing to pay. Don’t tell the agent!
persistence pays off
The house I wanted was advertised at $340,000. MBA sought to negotiate for me, but the vendor would not budge – comfortable as tenants were paying rent. Paul said it was overpriced and would not sell. He noted the expiry date of the tenancy and kept quietly working on it and as it came closer to expiring. He was very persistent and very patient and – as Paul predicted – the vendor came to the table and MBA negotiated a price of $317,500 – even less than my first offer six months prior.
A dream result and a great experience for my first home purchase.
the pick of the bunch
You got us the pick of the bunch for the price. Double car park is key and you’re right about the effect on rentability. Super excited.
professional and passionate
Paul, Mark and Garvin, @ MBA – you helped Yvonne and me get a great deal. I can definitely speak highly in regards to their work ethic, professionalism, and passion for a good outcome for clients. I trust their judgement.
paid for itself and more
We engaged Paul for conveyancing assistance on a house with complicated strata tile details that we were interested in buying through a pre-auction offer. The idea of using a buyer’s advocate had not crossed our minds until Paul presented a compelling argument.
He led us through complex negotiations and had a signed deal by the evening. We easily saved the advocate’s fee plus more on the final price and were very happy with the professional and friendly service.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Paul and the MBA team to other prospective buyers.
singing your praises
Thanks Paul. We are so thrilled with the purchase. When we first went to see this place when it first came on the market I thought it would go for much more as it is brilliant. I will certainly be singing your praises to anyone I come across looking for a property.
saving an amazing $140,000
Our limit was $1,150,000. Paul – through his bidding confidence, subtle messages used to the agent and auctioneer and ability to read the other bidders – managed to convince the auctioneer to sell it to us for $1,010,000, effectively saving us an amazing $140,000. More than worth it.
a win for the little guy
We are very grateful for MBA’s efforts in representing us at auction on our new home site in Glen Iris. It was a rare triumph for a personal buyer to secure such a large site amidst hungry developers. Your efforts also ensured we paid a fair market value for the house and in this instance significantly under the current council site value which was a huge bonus for us.
took away lot of the stress
Just a short email to say thank you for all the help with purchasing my home, and particularly the help with the negotiations. It certainly took away lot of the stress from my point of view.
advising me on price & contract negotiation
It’s just over a year since I bought my first apartment and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. I should have done it years ago but being a first time home buyer I had no idea what I needed to do or who could help me. I was referred to Paul Garson and MBA by a friend and would highly recommend him. Paul was extremely helpful, offering great advice about the property market. I looked at three properties before finding my apartment and Paul assessed their value and whether they would meet my requirements. He was also there for me at my first auction, even though I didn’t get that particular property. When I finally decided on a property, Paul was with me every step of the way – advising me on price and contract negotiation.
Paul and MBA helped me learn so much about property purchasing and I will definitely be seeking his skills for my next property purchase.
leaving us to enjoy life to the max
We’d like to thank you so much for all the hard yards you have put in, taking a lot of pressure of us and leaving us to enjoy life to the max. Your professionalism has been outstanding and no words can come to my mind how to express what we feel in our hearts. Not to mention when we called you after hours and you were always willing to assist us in every way. To us all the calls, emails, etc. was worth its weight in gold and it we feel we have known you for a life time. Once again Paul, thank you and MBA for the wonderful work. I am so grateful we have real people out there who are willing to treat us like a person and not a number. Keep up the good work and may you continue to grow.
A massive thanks to Paul and Garvin for all of your efforts. Wouldn’t have any hesitation recommending your services.
