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.
Save time running around
We’ll do all of the legwork for you, interviewing agents and thoroughly comparing their proposals.
Select the right method
With our vast bank of experience, we’ll guide you on what’s best for property and your personal circumstances.

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
It’s been a big step selling our family home of nearly 40 years, but after meeting with Nicole at the Rosanna office she quickly put us at ease. Her sense of commitment relieved our apprehension as to whether we were doing the right thing by using a advocate.
Nicole explained the whole selling process from picking the right agent, getting the house valued, staging the home right through to the negotiation process. Keeping us informed through all stages was a great feeling, particularly as we were overseas at the time.
We knew we had someone with great experience looking after our interests, the 3 week sale time was a lovely bonus.
Using Ian Reid was one of the best decisions we made after deciding to sell our house of 24 years. Some months before we were ready to market Cameron Parker came and helped us prepare with good sound advise, much of which we would not thought of. He then lead us through the process and kept us continually updated all the way. Not that it was very long, 10 days from first open house to sale. Could not be happier and would recommend the service to anyone, particularly Cameron’s service.
Very happy with the service. Alex communicated very well and was able to distil the options down to a sensible, manageable choice. We ended up with a very good agent, selling the property in 10 days.
No complaints here!
Nicole from Ian Reid was great to work with,communicated well and provided solid advice during the sales process.We also paid a lower commission than we would have been able to negotiate ourselves.
