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!!

After spending 2 years on and off, looking through the Real Estate pages and struggling to find that perfect investment property, with several disappointments at auction, we felt like we were never going to get our property investment portfolio off the ground. Continual struggle between emotional attachment to the things we liked and wanting the right investment for growth and return was making it very difficult to make firm decisions and follow through to purchase. A friend who had dealt with McRae Property, recommended we go and see them and see what they could do to help us. A first meeting was very enlightening and we had immediate confidence that the use of a Property Advocate was the best way to remove the emotional attachment and at the same time get expert advice on the best property for us. After one meeting and a month or so wait for McRae Property to find us the perfect property, we knew we had made the right decision. We have full confidence they have helped us purchase far better and more economically than we would have on our own and will definitely employ McRae Property to help purchase our next investment property , once we get through the big hurdle of settlement later this month.

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.

Securing our first investment property was a seamless and stress free process with McRae Property.
The team at McRae Property are consummate professionals who took care of every facet of the process including: researching and locating a property in a solid growth area, undertaking property inspections, reviewing the key documents related to the property, and bidding and securing the property at auction. They were even able to negotiate with the vendor to hold open inspections so we had a tenant ready to move in just after settlement.
The McRae team kept us informed throughout the whole process, and provided realistic, sound and consistent advice.
We couldn't have been happier with the process and the way in which we were treated by McRae Property. We would highly recommend their services and intend to use them again.

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!
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.
Make an enquiry and a McRae Property member will call you back in the next 48 hours.
Confidence in Melbourne's property has led to a resurgence in investor activity, fueling competition at auction and house price growth, which is great news for property sellers.
Shopping centre renovations are contributing to massive house price growth in surrounding suburbs, with Glen Waverly, Doncaster and Chadstone all seeing impressive increases in their median house prices.
