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.
Dan and Lela
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 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.
I was looking for an investment property but with my very busy work schedule and having 2 young children at home I did not have the time or energy required when looking for such an important purchase, as the wrong purchase could lead to no growth and a bad investment I was directed to McRae Property who advised me on my budget where and what type of properties would be suitable for investment purposes and the type of growth and rental I could expect.
They then sourced suitable properties and on full consultation viewing was arranged and once we had identified a suitable property the property was bid on and bought by them.
I found their services to be invaluable and if I had not used them I would not have gone ahead and found a property myself.
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.
McRae operate with a high level of integrity. I have purchased three properties through McRae and their high level of expertise has ensured that each purchase has been perfectly executed and exactly to my needs and risk appetite. They have taken me on a wealth creation journey which has been first-rate and highly professional.
