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.

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.
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.

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!

We would like to thank you for your assistance in helping us finding and then finally purchasing our ideal family home in such short time frame and within our budget! Although we had seen the property listed previously we did not bring it into our consideration because we thought it may have been out of our budget. Thankfully for your market insight and prior to auction research we were able to confidently bid at auction and winning as well! We will not hesitate to use your service again in the future.
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.

They have taken me on a wealth creation journey which has been first-rate and highly professional.
