SLEEPLESS NIGHTS

You're local, interstate or overseas and you want a professional that you can trust to help you secure a home or investment on the Gold Coast.

Press play

Buying a property but you...

FIND OUT HOW A BUYERS AGENT CAN HELP YOU

Are interstate and need someone on the ground that you can trust?

Have just started looking and are feeling overwhelmed;                                

Frustrated because you keep missing out?

Losing heart after months of searching?

Busy and don't have enough time to do extensive research?

lost even?

In a perfect world, people who want to secure their piece of paradise would never over-spend, never be mis-led and never miss their chance… 

WE KNOW THAT'S NOT THE CASE.

but...

How much of your precious time do you think you’ve spent searching, inspecting and calling agents who don’t even bother to call you back?

How often do you think about the idea of buying a property on the Gold Coast, but you’re busy or better yet, you live interstate and you’re busy.   It’s a logistical nightmare.

How many times have you found ‘the one’ only to have the rug swept out from under you at auction or by someone else who offered $1,000 more than you did.

How frustrating is it when you come across a bangin’ property online that wasn’t there yesterday but is online today AND it’s already sold (WHAT!!)?

WAIT!  You’ve fallen head over heals for a property and it’s going to auction but you have no idea where to start or how the auction process works. I mean how hard can it be?

Seriously though. We think buying a property should be fun.  But it's a tough gig!

A nightmare of endless inspections. Not to mention the logistics of getting there.  


A pipeline fantasy or a missed boat. 


A hopeless guessing game where the odds aren't in your favour, or


An agonising amount of negotiation with people who know more than you.

WHY US?

With 20+ years on-the-ground experience advocating for the rights of buyers, we know it's not just about buying a property. It's about buying the right property.



Because buying property isn't a decision you take lightly. So getting the right advice is advantageous.

Whether you've just started looking and are feeling overwhelmed. Whether you're experiencing the excruciating frustration of just missing out on potential properties; losing heart after months of searching; you simply don't have enough time to do extensive research or you need someone on the ground...




One that gives you the upper hand (without breaking a sweat) in the Gold Coast market.

the simple truth is

When you've got an experienced Property Valuer on your side of the search, arming you with insider-knowledge and doing the grunt work for you, you're at a significant advantage.

We call it The Buyer's Advantage 

THERE IS A SIMPLER WAY

You enjoy the advantage of independent property advice, insider knowledge and expert negotiation skills so that the purchasing journey is exciting and efficient. With the Buyer’s Advantage you can experience the excitement and joy of arrival… 

An arrival at the exact address of a dream location: no regrets, no second-guessing, and no way you’ll pay above a property’s true worth. 




Instead of just hoping (fingers crossed) you made the
right decision…. you’ll walk into your perfect property
(and a new life) knowing that you absolutely did.

The Buyer's Advantage is a unique approach to purchasing property that gives you exactly that: privileged purchasing power.

End result?

Even though we're in the business of making dreams happen, we are realists at heart who believe in managing expectations. 

Enough talk though, here's exactly what you get when you work with us

Get Tony’s brain on tap – you can ask him as many questions as you like. He’s a total property geek. He will help you stay clear on your ultimate vision and not get swayed by the selling agents. 

BONUS

Privately arranged viewings. No need to wait for open homes when you’ve got us making all of the arrangements. We personally chauffeur you around the Coast and accompany your pre-booked viewings.

A short-list of ideal properties. Rather than you having to inspect hundreds of properties that aren’t ideal, we do the legwork for you to narrow down potential properties. 

The right connections. With twenty years local experience we know exactly which selling agents to connect with and which to avoid, based on your clear property vision. Plus we make the connections for you.

An expansive view. We look way beyond the shop-front window when searching for your perfect property. Being independent agents we canvass the entire market on your behalf (discovering gems you may never have found on your own).

Specific and relevant insights into the current market, so that you can achieve and maintain focus on what you truly want to (and can) purchase.

01

We help you gain a clear vision of your dream property to radically reduce search time (and stress).

CLARITY

INFORMED ADVICE

DREAM PROPERTY SECURED

Hard facts on the property’s real worth. We’re qualified property valuers, so we’re here to ensure you don’t pay over market value during the negotiation.

BONUS

20 years of qualified property advice in the local market, generously and clearly explained. We don’t like jargon either.

Accurate property measurements. Sometimes the size of the property doesn’t always turn out to be what the seller tells you.

Advice on capital growth potential. We talk you through this, help you weigh up the pros and cons so that you have all of the variables before making a decision.

Concrete and comparative sales evidence. We arm you with all the facts so you are confident with our recommendations.

Everything you need to know about a property, suburb and selling agent to make an informed decision.

02

We deal with the facts, rather than the sales hype, so that you gain the knowledge and insight on the real value of a given property, not what the seller wants you to believe it's worth.

INFORMED ADVICE

INFORMED ADVICE

Video footage and commentary on the good, the bad and the ugly gives you an insight into a property that’s not possible by just viewing photographs. Get the lay of the land, a good feel of the streetscape and the vibe of the neighbourhood. With video viewings you can experience the layout and condition of a property at a place and time.

Video viewings for those abroad or that just don’t have time to do inspections.

Imagine having a professional – incurable – negotiator armed with insider knowledge, free of emotion negotiating on your behalf? This kind of power is out-of-reach for most buyers. That is, unless you’ve got a very (very) experienced buyer’s agent. 

negoitation done for you

No need to send contracts back and forth. Perfect if you're working abroad or can't be available on short notice when negotiation time rolls round. We'll be able to sign contracts on your behalf and handle all of the too and fro - all under your instructions.

BONUS

Insider knowledge. While selling agents would never disclose the seller’s real motivations to a buyer, they would to trusted industry professionals. Understanding the real motivation of the seller is crucial to successful negotiations. 

Real conversation. We talk you through each step, explain the process thoroughly and simply so you are confident and clear throughout the journey. 

Uncompromised power. In negotiations, emotions cost you money, so we manage the negotiation strategy for you. We insulate you from the selling agent so none of the usual tactics apply to your purchase.

Auction representation. We can save you our fee in one bid. Anyone can “win” if their pockets are deep enough, but we believe in smart strategy and we know the scene so well, we often secure properties before they go to auction. 

Potential outcomes. We know this journey well, so we’ve always got play b and c up our sleeves. Which means you’re never left guessing or stressing.

Guide you to settlement. Our job isn’t done until you’re properly settled, safe and secure in your new abode.

Connect you with reputable tradespeople. Another bonus of having local insights. 

Source the right specialist to protect your investment. We can help you select a property manager that is going to protect your asset (and achieve a premium rental return). 

Take care of all the paperwork. So you can take care of your family.
