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.

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!!
My wife and I engaged McRae Property after interviewing a number of prominent Buyer Advocate organisations. We were impressed most by David and John's background, confidence and expertise in property valuation which meant that our discussions were always grounded on commercial reality.
They worked hard for us over an extended period and worked with changing market conditions.
When they found the right property they were careful, thorough and considered in their approach and were successful in securing the property for us at fair market value prior to auction.
As they promised, and in generous excess of the agreed scope of their services, David and John have continued to support us during the process of designing our new home.
They have provided both practical advice, feedback and innovative ideas to ensure our home design is both liveable and attractive to the market.
We recommend them thoroughly and would engage their services for our next property.
My recent dealings with David McRae and John Sommers from McRae Property were nothing short of first class. Their expertise in the field of real estate is obvious and this, coupled with their personal and genuine manner, made for a stress-free buying experience – particularly relevant for a first time investor. David McRae being geared towards listening was able to understand my requirements and show only those properties fitting my set criteria which proved quite a time saver. He was an absolute pleasure to deal with following through on all commitments, delivering on all promises and helping achieve a very positive outcome. Honest, professional and reliability are three words I'd use to describe my dealings with all staff at McRae Property and I look forward to working with them again for my next purchase.

We wanted to thank you for being there with us through the process of buying our first house in Melbourne. Your professional expertise and knowledge of the market as well as your experience at auctions was exactly what we needed. It made what is often a stressful experience quite smooth and all within a short timeframe. We couldn't have done it without you.
We are very happy with our new home and can't wait to move in!
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.
