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?

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!!

Just a quick note to say thank you to David and John of McRae Property for helping us with the purchase of our house. We can't speak highly enough of them! They "got" our brief for the house immediately and saved us a huge amount of time and energy, by ensuring we only considered properties which were "right" for us, and within our price range. They were utterly professional and had absolute attention to detail - sending us proposed floor plans for properties we were considering and check lists with costings for any renovation works which might be needed. They liaised for contract review and building and pest inspection reports, and provided formal valuations of all the properties we seriously considered - which were "bang on" everytime (and most importantly, the bank agreed!). Above all else, they are a pleasure to deal with - we were sort of sorry to finally buy a house and no longer need them!
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.

Australia was the favourite country for wealthy migrants in 2017. Proximity to emerging Asian economies, its safety record, relatively low inherited taxes, and perceived problems with the US healthcare industry were all key factors.
