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.

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.
My wife and I were looking for an investment property within the inner city Melbourne area. I am currently based in Asia and have been for the past fourteen years. It was very difficult for my wife and I to find the time and to know and understand the real estate market in Melbourne after being away for such a long time. Mcrae Property Services were recommended to us by a Melbourne Real Estate agent. Our initial thought was "would this be a safe and financially viable option", as we did not know these people at all. Well, we made contact from overseas and introduced ourselves, explaining what our requirements were. It all went very well from there. John and David were absolutely fantastic people to deal with. They are very honest and the thing we admired the most was that they were on top of the game and we felt that we were treated the same as if they were looking for property for their own family. After they did all the groundwork, they narrowed down the options to approx 5 houses. Their opinions on the five options were valuable and we ended up settling on one house in Richmond. I am always sceptical when you are dealing with people you don't know and there is a lot of money on the line. But now, after settlement on our property has been finalised and we have great tenants in the property, we are extremely pleased.
We have no hesitation in recommending the services of both John Sommers and David Mcrae.

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.
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.

We used McRae Property’s services in purchasing a property and heartily, absolutely, thoroughly recommend them. John searched for suitable properties for us, doing the leg work and saving us so much time and potentially costly mistakes by identifying only the best value properties. He kept in touch during the search, letting us know at every step what was happening. His knowledge, patience, experience and friendly helpful manner were, and are, amazing. Wonderful service, wonderful expertise – wonderful.
