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.

Nicole Rowe from Ian Reid Vendor Advocates was fantastic.
Using Ian Reid Advocates made our life so much easier in preparing and then selling our home of 15 years. Nicole came to us for the initial meeting and then steered us through all the processes in getting the house ready to sell, negotiating with Real Estate agents to set up the right commission structures and marketing campaign and then helping to manage the process. In a market that was clearly less hot we were able to sell our home in a three week period in the price range we wanted. Nicole’s positivity and right advice and the right time made all the difference for us. We wouldn’t hesitate to use her again.
We would like to thank you for all your assistance and support during our sale campaign. You have been very professional, had clear boundaries and most of all, you were there when we hit a snag. Selling and buying a house is a complicated, enduring process, not as easy as it looks (and I’m the first to admit that). You were there to guide us through the maze, letting us making the decisions and being transparent all the way through. In a nutshell; walking up to you at the “Home Show” was the best decision we made.
Please extend our compliment to Ian Reid’s for the great service they are offering.
We couldn’t have been happier with the service from Michael Collins. From the start as we tried to get our home ready for sale to the finish he could not have done more. He made the whole process so easy. And we achieved a result well over the independent valuation. Thanks Michael, we couldn’t have done it without you.
Even when the market is down, IRVA gets the house soldSue Woolard was efficient and professional and got the job done. I was not well enough to keep on top of all the things that needed to happen with selling my family home but Sue kept me on track. Thanks Sue!
Mum passed away over 12 months ago and it was always going to be a stressful and emotional time selling her house. I was recommended IRVA and made contact. Explained to Cameron the circumstances and that we just wanted someone to manage the sale for us. Cameron took this on board and that is exactly what he did. From the moment he went out and viewed the house for the first time to the moment it sold he went above and beyond to ensure everything was taken care of and so we got the best out of the sale. Kept us updated all the way. Professional, caring, and ended up getting us a fantastic result. Would not hesitate engaging them again.
Great Professional Service.
Floris was very helpful and professional. He expertly guided us through the preparation phase and also the selection of the best offer.

This is the second time using these services and they have great. In these time pressed age, it is great to have someone to help advise and manage the sale with you. Recommend Sue Willard highly – thank you!
