"Rich said at the time, you know most people get a house between eight to twelve weeks, and I was having my doubts towards the end of last year that that was going to be me. But it all just worked and it was so smooth. So no, I couldn't fault the experience, couldn't fault working with Rich, and would recommend using him to anyone."

"My experience with propertybuyer and their Brisbane team - Glen & Lisa was seamless and one that I will be recommending to friends and family many times over. I approached propertybuyer as a first time investor looking to get into the market and secure an investment-grade property but I didn't know where to start or how to begin the search especially investing interstate. Glen and Lisa was able to highlight a few key areas with sound reasonings behind each area. Once we settled on an area, they were quick to pass through many high quality properties from the countless inspections they performed every Saturday. Where Glen and Lisa's value shined through was when they avoided me paying too much on the first couple of offers that were made on a property. During COVID lockdowns, they was able to secure me a sought-after property off-market and our offer was accepted promptly through their seasoned negotiation skills. On top of the above, the knowledge I have come away with, and propertybuyer's ability to help you make a decision quickly is well worth the investment and I will be knocking on propertybuyers door again shortly when I am ready to find my next property investment. Couldn't recommend highly enough."

A buyers’ agent can save you a packet of money if they are experienced, knowledgeable and have your best interests at heart. They can take the emotion out of the negotiation and auction process and give you accurate advice on property values. They should have an extensive database of agent contacts to help you find off-market properties.
Apart from searching online, ask a local selling agent if they have seen a good buyers agent in action. You can also ask family, friends and work colleagues about their experience with using buyers agents.
An important question to ask a buyers agent is whether they are truly “exclusive” or “independent”. If they accept sales commission from vendors or developers then they cannot be classified as “independent” as they are acting in the interests of the seller. Only deal with a licensed buyers agent (you can check license via the Office of Fair Trading in each state) and one that is a recognised member of your state Real Estate Institute and the Real Estate Buyers Agents Association of Australia.
There are seven factors to consider when selecting a good buyers agent.
