The Infolio buyer’s advocate difference
Choosing the right buyer’s advocate can take a lot of the stress out of the property purchase process. They have the potential to save you a lot of money, and match you with the right home faster and with much less hassle.
No two buyer’s advocates are the same, and when choosing a buyer’s advocate in Melbourne, there are some very important questions we recommend asking:
- First and foremost, how extensive is the experience of the buyer’s agent? How long have they been in the industry?
- Is the business a one-man operation?
- What qualifications are held by the agent?
- Past successes – can the buyer’s agent provide you with testimonials from previous clients, and figures from (recent) purchases?
- How well do they know the area you’re looking to buy in?
- Are they well-connected with real estate agents in the area?
We believe we’re Melbourne’s best buyer’s advocates in Elwood, Brighton, Albert Park, South Melbourne, Middle Park, and throughout the rest of Melbourne. We began in 2008, identifying a genuine need for the public to be better informed, from buyers and sellers to renovators and those needing help with property management. As well as offering insight and expertise in property concerns, our buyer’s agents are often able to bypass the open market, allowing our clients to secure or sell property with a minimum of fuss and avoid the stress of going to auction.

“Where to begin! We initially sat down with Infolio and gave them one of the broadest, least helpful briefs of all time on finding our new home as we didn’t know where to begin. After a few meetings, Infolio hit the nail on the head. It only took a few rounds of open homes, all of which were off market, until we found our dream home. We didn’t sacrifice in a single area of our top “must haves” because Infolio knew exactly what we were after. Their networks in the business and knowledge of the Melbourne market single handedly did a job that we could have never done ourselves. We cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism of Infolio and the joyous experience we had in what can often be a stressful time. They worked with us from day 1 on finding our new home right up until the final sale of our old home. They were more than transparent throughout the entire process and we were so thankful they were there to get the job done. I don’t know what we would have done without them! Thank you to the entire Infolio team for helping us transition into a new chapter, we are so grateful!”
“The Infolio team seem to have heaps of contacts with the real estate agents around town – who seemed to know them by name and clearly respected them. When one of the agents asked me who we were using and said ‘oh they’re excellent’ I figured we were on to a good thing and this proved to be so! Many thanks to Vicki and Nick for helping us secure a great home.”
“Over the past four years we have engaged Infolio as a buying advocate, property manager and selling agent and cannot recommend highly enough their services in all three areas. They are passionate in their delivery of service to their customers, ensuring at every stage of the process their clients are informed and engaged.”
“Just wanted to say a big thank-you for helping us secure our fabulous new home – before baby arrived! It was great to have a third or sometimes even fourth opinion on properties and your persistence and enthusiasm really helped us through the entire (often frustrating!) process to achieve a great result, within one of our preferred suburbs. We will be sure to recommend Infolio to anyone wishing to purchase a property.”
“I consulted with Infolio a I was ready for an investment property. Never having done this before, I didn’t know what to look for…Nicholas taught me so much, further from that he opened my mind to possibilities of using my money in the best possible way…he stopped auctions and lots of other tricks that blew me away. We actually have no idea the games we are guinea pigs to when we show up at auctions thinking we know the game better than the masters. In the end Nicholas called to say….”I have it”…This property was off market and I dropped everything to run down to see it straight away…Thank you to Nicholas and the incredible team at Infolio for the journey. This is a dream come true…”
“It has been an absolute pleasure to have you helping us buy our new home. We had only a week before the auction, so without you we could not have done the due diligence in the time available and therefore would not have even been in a position to buy the property. To top it all off you managed to secure the property for less than we offered before the auction and with all the terms and conditions we wanted. Brilliant! You have really looked after us and saved us your fees many times over. Thank you!”
“Living in regional Victoria and wishing to purchase our first investment property in Melbourne was always going to be very time consuming and frustrating. Deciding to engage Infolio was the best decision we could have made. The team went to work straight away and in not time have secured a great property at discount, without us having to lift a finger.”
