I'm the Founder and Managing Director of Propertybuyer. I specialize in finding homes above 3 million for the luxury and prestige market. I also do a lot of work with investors and commercial buyers.
I get a real buzz out of helping our clients find exactly the right property for their needs, one that ticks all the right boxes, just seeing the smile on their face when they walk in, and it's just the right property for them. I love helping investors save money and getting the right deal. I love helping them build a portfolio of quality properties. I love working with Propertybuyer.
I'm the Director and Founder of Propertybuyer established over a decade ago, we have a team that's a very close knit team of professionals, very well experienced in property with very high integrity. They have excellent research skills, so they're able to actually understand what the client wants, and then deliver a property that's just right for them.
The other thing is that we've won over 20 Business Awards so we've been recognized for having great systems, great processes, and great research. The clients love our service because it just saves the hassle of having to search every day and deal with agents on a daily basis.
They also love the market knowledge we bring to those market insights, being able to tell them what a property is worth and whether to just avoid looking at a property any further which ones to go for. Thirdly just the independence you know having someone between them and the agent, being able to understand how the transaction really works.
I love spending time with my family, my wife and my two beautiful boys and we just have a lot of fun together. I love doing adventurous things like surfing, bushwalking, mountain bike riding and a bit of woodwork and just doing things around the house.
