We remove the stress of downsizing your home at no cost to you
If it’s time to make your move to a ‘right size’ home, retirement village or aged care facility, we can help you.
If you have elderly parents who would benefit from a guiding hand during this challenging time, we’re here to help.
We specialise in helping retirees and elderly citizens sell the family home by assisting at every stage of the process – and it doesn’t cost a cent extra to engage us.
We’re Vendor Advocates and we have a proven 3 Step Process that will save you time, money and stress. With 3 decades of experience, we know what it takes to achieve the highest price for your home while keeping the whole process transparent and the selling agent honest.
We take care of everything from helping prepare your property for sale, to choosing the right real estate agent. Then we work together with the agent to leave no stone unturned in our mission to ensure you achieve the highest possible price. You’ll have 2 property professionals working for you for the price of 1.
This service does not cost you extra because we receive an industry standard referral fee from the agent. We share the work with the agent, so we also share in their fee.

Is this really a FREE service?
YES! You might be thinking Vendor Advocacy sounds too good to be true and there must be a catch? We can honestly say there isn’t! It’s very common in the property industry when 2 agents work together on a sale they share in the commission paid by the seller. It’s known as a Conjunction Fee or Referral Fee.
This DOES NOT mean you pay a higher sales commission. We negotiate a competitive selling fee with the chosen agent and we DO NOT align ourselves with any particular agents. Every agent goes through the same strict interview process each and every time.
We’re often asked do we have ‘favourite’ agents we use more often? The answer is a definite NO! The best agent at that time for that particular property will win the business. We have no ‘deals’ with any particular agents. Remaining independent of the agent is how we achieve success for our clients.
Having us as your Vendor Advocate allows the agent to focus their energy on what they do best – marketing the property and dealing with the buyers.
