We are Qualified Valuers and of course, fully licensed Real Estate Agents. Our principals have a combined Valuation career of over 60 years in the Melbourne area and have been acting as buyers advocates for clients since the early 1980's.
Based on established valuation principles we will provide you with accurate advice as to a properties current fair market value. When buying a property, if you are uncertain of its true value, how can you determine where to start a negotiation and where to stop? How can you know that you are buying well?
How can we help you?
For investors the brief is somewhat different. Essentially, the objective should be quite simple: to maximise both the opportunity you have and the sum you have to work with. Namely, to make an amount of money grow as quickly as possible, while generating a sound income return on the investment.
How can we help you?
As a natural extension of our Buyers' Advocate role, we are often approached by existing clients and others to advise and act for them in the role of a Vendor's Advocate. We act as a neutral point between the vendor and selling agent, and ensure that the sales process runs as smoothly as possible.
How can we help you?
A significant proportion of our purchases are for expatriates located predominantly in the Middle East and Asia, and to a lesser extent in the UK and the USA. The intention behind your purchase may be to secure a property which will be your home on return to Australia or, alternatively, it could be for investment purposes.
Kylie and Ameer
We are writing to thank you for finding our dream house for us. We could not be happier with the house you found for us, the way you negotiated the transaction and the purchase price we paid.
We knew our brief was difficult – 4 bedrooms plus study and on site car parking near the city, but you managed to find exactly what we were looking for and in such a lovely street. We would never have found this house on our own nor been able to make an offer and complete the deal before it even went on the market.
I am now a firm believer in using a buyer's advocate and plan to recommend you to our friends and colleagues.
In particular we would like to thank John Sommers for his work with us over the last 6 months. John was always helpful and patient and really invested time to understand what we were looking for. He also provided useful advice along the way which was very reassuring. It was much easier going through the process with John's help.
Now we are looking forward to moving into our new house and we look forward to inviting you over to celebrate.
Both David and John came well recommended to us from several sources (previous satisfied clients).
I must say that we were very impressed with the professionalism from both John and David from the moment we had our first meeting.
They not only performed the 'grunt' work but more importantly provided sound advice on what each property was worth and kept us focussed on our initial brief.
During the final evaluation and offer phase they provided sound advice where to place our initial offer and after lengthy negotiation concluded the deal in a very satisfactory way for us.
As we initially intended to lease the property prior to our own use , McRae Property secured a very substantial increase to the rental which the Agents had predicted and furthermore negotiated the leasing and management fees in our favour.
As an added bonus they prepared a guide of depreciation benefits which was very helpful in our final decision making process.
In summary , we had a great experience using McRae Property and we would use them again.
Krishnan and Anu
We are very glad we engaged your company to assist us with buying a property in Melbourne.
Trying to buy a property, especially one that was not an investment but going to be our family home is tough & trying to buy it while we were overseas was even more challenging.
However to our relief, you made it a smooth experience, the advice given was sound & we were always comfortable that you had our best interests in mind.
We were especially appreciative of the patience with our many enquiries & the many false starts that came about in the 9 month period while we finally found the right place.
The final deal was done expeditiously & we look forward to moving into our new home early next year!
Shell and David
We would like to thank you for your assistance in helping us finding and then finally purchasing our ideal family home in such short time frame and within our budget! Although we had seen the property listed previously we did not bring it into our consideration because we thought it may have been out of our budget. Thankfully for your market insight and prior to auction research we were able to confidently bid at auction and winning as well! We will not hesitate to use your service again in the future.
I discovered David McRae through the recommendation of a friend who has used them to purchase two properties in Melbourne.
I employed their services to find and purchase a property in Melbourne. David and John's professionalism and expertise were above expectation. The service is comprehensive in finding suitable properties and their knowledge and relationships within the industry were invaluable when it cam to the actual purchase. I would have no hesitation in recommending their service.
Louise and Gavin
Gavin and I wish to thank you and John for your professional and efficient manner in assisting us with our long term investment strategy.
We look forward to an ongoing relationship with your company and doing further business with you in the future.
