Legally your relationship with your Agent is not about the Agent or the Buyer, it's about you, The Vendor. Hence, we are Vendor First!! Of course, the Buyer also has important legal rights, but it is the Agent's obligation to always put the Vendor First and the Agent must always interact with Buyers in ways that best represent the Vendor's interests.

There are various ways to introduce buyers to your property. Some Vendors like to have their property Open for Inspection at specific times when anyone can attend, whilst others prefer inspections by pre-qualified buyers viewing by Appointment. Of course, your home can even be shown by Video. We look forward to explaining your options.
Some Vendors prefer lots of Signage whilst others prefer something more Discreet and yet others prefer Anonymity, until buyers are properly qualified. We look forward to explaining your options.
AUCTION, TENDER or NEGOTIATION ONLY?
The Auction chapter in Grant's book explains how to buy, but not sell, because there are too many variables from the Vendor side. We look forward to explaining your options, based on your needs and expectations.
The chapter in Grant's book entitled Beating the Salesperson, has some illuminating information. We look forward to explaining your options.
We are happy to provide you with a No-Cost and No-Obligation Appraisal, however a formal Valuation by an independent Valuer can be worth the cost, as can Pest and Building inspections. We're happy to explain why.
