Knowledge Is Power
Your essential first step is to read our booklet "Fatal Real Estate Traps Exposed", which outlines the common mistakes that home sellers make and guides you on how to avoid them. Download it for free. Then a face-to-face meeting with one of our experienced Vendor Advocates will fully inform you on your best selling options and set you on the right path.
Presenting your home
To assist our vendors with really nailing this, we arrange a complimentary property stylist to meet with you, to help you improve the little things that make a big difference. For more presentation tips, you can also download our Property Styling Guide.
Ian Reid Vendor Advocates shortlist the best agents for your sale. We personally take them through your property, one by one, before having them complete our comprehensive 'Agent Submission' form.
Compare The Market
We’ll compare, contrast, dissect, and deliberate over the Agent Submissions, so together we can make the right call on selecting the best strategy, agent, and pricing for your property.
Your independent advisor
As your advocate, our job is to get you the best outcome achievable and ensure your interests are looked after.
You retain control
Should your agent not meet their commitments, we can change them immediately, rather than being locked in for a lengthy period of time.

With our vast bank of experience, we’ll guide you on what’s best for property and your personal circumstances.

Luke has been a fantastic addition to the sale process and made what was an emotionally challenging process to sell our home a very smooth and positive journey. The extensive real estate experience that Luke brings is invaluable. We could not recommend Luke more highly and wouldn’t hesitate to engage him again in the future.
We were extremely grateful to have had Nicole Rowe on our side. From start to finish, we were given a professional, informative and remarkable service. Nicole’s diligence, patience and attention to detail were accompanied by a friendly and courteous demeanour – thus transforming the daunting process of selling our house into a simple and straightfoward process. Furthermore, Nicole was equipped with phenomenal skills of negotiation and applied them in realms where we, as the vendors, did not know negotiation could or should take place. We would definitely recommend Ian Reid Vendor Advocates to our friends and family – hopefully, they too will have the pleasure of dealing with an advocate as knowledgeable and caring as what Nicole was for us. Thanks a million Nicole and Ian Reid Vendor Advocates.
We were extremely happy with CAMERON PARKER. He was very Professional from the beginning to end.
Always kept us informed.
Happy to recommend him to family & friends.
Thank you Cameron, we wish you all the best.
Nicole Rowe, an Ian Read’s Advocate, has assisted me tremendously in selling my house.
After experiencing some difficulties in marketing my house with a previous Real estate agent , it was suggested to me to approach Ian Reid Vendor Advocates instead of directly engaging another local Real estate agent.
Nicole, who was very approachable and professional, assisted me in many ways, namely:
– on the basis of her experience she suggested to me local Real estate agents suitable for marketing and selling my property;
– negotiated with the agents advertising and the total cost of selling my house;
– constantly monitored the sale process and kept me updated throughout the process;
– provided other general support and necessary guidance, thus alleviating my stress and uncertainty of an inexperienced first time seller.
Nicole’s advice re the latest property market trend development and its impact on the selling price was invaluable. I have no hesitation to recommend Nicole to any prospective sellers.
Luke’s guidance, honesty, expertise and experience really gave us piece of mind in selling our family home in a very difficult real estate market. Luke patiently took our many phone calls and reassured us every step of the way in our first time experience from selecting the best agent for us, to making our home shine in a plentiful market. We would with a doubt, highly recommend Luke to anybody seeking solid advice, excellent guidance in preparing for sale and brilliant industry knowledge. Thanks Luke for everything you did for us, in minimising the stress and supporting us throughout the whole process of selling.
Luke’s expertise and experience really shone through in what is a difficult and correcting real estate market. Luke guided us through with honesty and integrity and would recommend Luke to anybody looking for advice, guidance and minimal stress and a great result.
Michael from Ian Reid was constantly in contact, with advice from the eviction of a troublesome tenant right through to the sale of our house. On the couple of times I needed to vent he listened, and helped achieve a quick sale with a price higher than expected.
As we lived over 350kms from the house, using Ian Reid Vendor Advocates was the best decision we made, and won’t hesitate to recommend them to others
