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.

Cameron Parker a Dedicated Professional
I am writing to express my thanks and appreciation for the expert guidance by Advocate Cameron Parker of Ian Reid Vendor Advocates. Cameron’s professionalism was impressive, he kept me fully informed and was always available to lend support and answer questions. On auction day he skillfully and tirelessly negotiated an excellent result. I appreciated Cameron’s efforts and would recommend using Ian Reid Vendor Advocates to other prospective vendors.
Cameron Parker did a great job in assisting us to sell our property. It’s the only time we have gone to market and felt that our agent was truly acting in our best interest. He is a true professional and his experience and knowledge of the market is first rate. He constantly kept us posted with the progress of our sale which helped keep the whole process as stress free as possible. We have no hesitation in recommending Cameron and will definitely use him the next time we sell.
We were unsure about selling in the Winter months and how to maximise the price achieved in a slightly softening market. Cameron was a constant support and never missed a beat in guiding us through the steps towards a successful outcome. We have no doubt that his expertise directly affected a higher return than we might otherwise have enjoyed. Thanks Cameron!
Michael Collins did a great job in making our decisions through the process very clear and simple. Navigating the way through our local agents was a great help. He was also extremely helpful with setting a price range which allowed us to get on with making our property look it’s best for the sale period. Well worth the call to Ian Reid Vendor advocate.
1st house we have sold and looked to IRVA for assistance. Ian Stewart was put on my case and selected an estate agent and worked together so well. Felt like I had a great help along the way. Ians years of experience also showed in small yet noticeable recommendations to not only the estate agent, but myself. Great result in the end with the house sold and above reserve. Will be using Ian again if we ever sell. Thank you.
The team at Ian Reid where very helpful gave us all the information we needed to get our house ready for sale. The house came up a treat and getting a stylish to funtiure the house was the best thing EVER!!
So all up if I was to sell or buy I would not think twice about Ian Reid advocates.
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.
