About McRae Property

The holding company of McRae Property was established by David McRae in 1973. Since its formation, the Company has acquired properties for major developers, both locally and internationally, and has acted for a wide range of investors and owner-occupiers, both local and overseas, and across all price ranges.

McRae Property is, without doubt nor exaggeration, the most established, most credible and most qualified Buyers' Advocate company in Australia.

Our Principals obtained their property valuation qualifications in 1974 and 1980, and licensed real estate agent qualifications in 1984 and 1999, respectively. They form the benchmark for our disciplined approach and strategies, utilised to carry out our role as Buyers' Advocates, in an unchallenged, professional manner.

Our company has always delivered within the framework of the valuers discipline, while integrating our extensive experience at the coalface of the ever-changing direction and nature of Melbournes' dynamic property industry.

That's why today, 95% of our business is repeat or referral business.

That's why major banking institutions, law firms and accountancy practices refer their clients to us.

John is a qualified Valuer (1980) and Licensed Real Estate Agent (1999).

His career has revolved around the valuation, sale and purchase of both residential and commercial property. He has worked for a major CBD-based real estate agency and a number of both valuation and agency firms in Melbourne's inner suburbs since the late 1970s. He has also run his own Buyers' Advocate firm prior to joining McRae Property in 2007.

John has valued a wide variety of real estate, purchased many hundreds of properties for his clients and established relationships with individuals at almost every major Melbourne real estate agency.

Those relationships are crucial in finding properties before they 'hit the market' and also in obtaining the background information which is so important in making the right decisions, particularly in the negotiation process.

This experience and knowledge enables us to discharge our responsibilities to our clients in a way that has resulted in approximately 95% of our new business coming from referrals.
