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.

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.
We are very satisfied with the service we received.
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!
I contacted IRVA after hearing their Ads on 3AW. They were very helpful, sending me their free booklet. Luke Scanna was appointed to help me sell my mums home of 52 years, lots of emotions there! Luke was always available for help and guidance and was very helpful in finding the right agent to sell the house. We got a great price, particularly with the present market conditions. I would definitely recommend & IRVA. Thanks Luke and team for a great job. Graeme
The support and advice given by Luke Scanna was invaluable in reducing the stress related to selling my late mum’s property, which was an emotional time. We have no hesitation in recommending Luke to anyone considering selling. We were very happy with the agent who worked with Luke and the result, the whole process was efficient and professionally done. Thank you Luke.
IRVA helped me in the sale of our CBD apartment. We got access to sensible and informed information in a very professionally managed process. Didn’t cost me anymore that I would have paid the real estate agent. Overall a very worthwhile experience and one that I can strongly recommend.
Thank you Nicole. My brother, sister and myself could not have auctioned the property without your expertise, advice and support. You stepped in and introduced several agents to give us a broader choice instead of the limited contacts we had come up with and organised an independent property valuation instead of relying on estimates provided by the real estate industry. You ably assisted and guided us through the minefield of marketing decisions to be made and clearly explained how the commission and bonus structure worked. You always made yourself available in person or over the phone if we had any issue we needed help with. You did a wonderful job of being the go-between with the real estate agents we appointed whom, at the time we had had little or no dealing with at all! You made sure that everything was done in a timely manner and provided us with weekly area comparisons of sales and OFI statistics and ensured everything was being done to attract as many potential buyers on auction day.
We are based in the country and were selling our inner Melbourne property. Ian Reid was recommended to us by a family member. Luke was excellent, taking on a lot of the day-to-day tasks of valuation, sourcing an estate agent, liaising with the agent and generally guiding us through a lengthy process, following the passing in of the property at auction. We achieved a good result in the end. His advice and support throughout was invaluable.
We highly recommend him.
