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.

We can unequivocally say that we wouldn't have gotten our lovely home, plus our two appreciating investment properties without McRae Property.
We were a little overwhelmed with the thought of buying our first residential home. So when the vendor's agent contacted us one Saturday evening, letting us know we had until Sunday 11am to make a sealed bid offer, we were lucky to have McRae Property step in to help us manage that stressful experience. They abandoned their Saturday social plans, visited the property within the hour, reviewed the contract and inspection report, did a neighbourhood survey, and met us 10am Sunday with invaluable advice. We won the bid by a whisker, and we're still in the same house 5 years later, with no plans on moving!
We've subsequently bought 2 investment properties, exerting very little effort during the search & auction process. McRae Property always visits potential properties first, and their shortlists for which properties we should view have nailed all elements of our brief: appreciation potential, location, rental yields, style, timing, budget, etc. Bidding at auctions was handled professionally, as was the subsequent negotiation after being passed in. We particularly appreciate how McRae Property handles things end-to-end for us: from sourcing properties, to reviewing contracts, to bidding at auctions, to engaging a solicitor, to even having a property management team!
We've been lucky that every property we've bid on, McRae Property has successfully gotten it for us. While a 3 for 3 record might not be the norm, we're thankful to McRae Property for making it a relatively easy process.

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!!
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.
David and John from were instrumental in assisting us to purchase our investment property. Their market knowledge, industry relationships and property expertise were invaluable throughout the buying process. Engaging McRae Property enable us to purchase a fantastic property in a brilliant location for the right price.

“This might sound like a fairytale in the booming Melbourne market, but experts say bargains like this are still out there — buyers just need to be willing to travel more than 30km from the CBD to find them” http://ow.ly/y0CD309Ze67
Victoria experienced a boost in first-home buyer activity at the end of last year — and experts believe the State Government’s land release to create 17 new suburbs will help even more enter the market. http://ow.ly/MC4N309Ze0u
