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.

McRae Propery was highly recommended to us through our broker. With little knowledge of what an advocate can actually do for you, I was sceptical.
My husband and I had been looking for a property for over a year and a half with no luck in such a hot market and had all but given up hope of finding our dream home. Our first meeting with David McRae was very positive and encouraging. Realistic expectations were set from the start and we were introduced to John Sommers who would be our right hand man.
It only took 3 months for John to find us the perfect home. John's professionalism and experience in his field is unparalleled. John was in constant contact with us and opened our eyes to new opportunities that we would not have previously considered whilst sticking to our fundamental brief. As a result, we were successful in purchasing our ideal home which ticks all the boxes - including some bonus ticks too!
McRae Property provided us with the knowledge, insight, resources, support and expertise that made all the difference. Without them, we would still be looking, or would have given up.
Although sceptical at the beginning I am now a complete convert and a huge advocate for McRae Property Buyers Advocates!! Thanks guys!!

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.
I would like to thank you both for the help, support and professional advise provided in acquiring my first investment property. I guess the key thing I take away from this is that “knowledge is power” and you guys have a fair bit between yourselves. Visiting the properties with you also gave me a sense of comfort and confidence that you are both on my team working hard to get the best result for me. Buying a property is quite a daunting experience but through your effective and prompt communication style you made it appear as a seamless process. I look forward to building on this relationship and can't wait to get my hands on a another property.
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.
McRae Property have allowed us to sit back and relax while they do all the necessary ground work required in purchasing investment properties for us. They have been extremely diligent and professional in all regards for each of our purchases and their expertise in all areas of real estate, derived from decades of experience, has shone through. We would not hesitate to use them again for any future property investment.

At McRae Property, we understand that purchasing a property from overseas can be a difficult. 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. Our objective is to provide as much information as possible to enable you to move forward with total confidence.
What is the best season to sell? During winter, with fewer properties to choose from, more buyers will get to see your property. If we were selling we would sell in winter.
