    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.

    At Infolio, we pride ourselves on being the most up-to-date with all things relating to real estate, such as suburb trends, the ever-changing legislations associated with property, and the latest figures. To keep you as well-informed as possible, we offer a free weekly newsletter. Subscribe via our contact page.

    Our expertise stretches across many suburbs of Melbourne, including:

    • South Melbourne
    • Elwood
    • Brighton
    • Albert Park
    • Middle Park
    • And many more…
