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.

Thanks Luke. Couldn’t have received the marvelous outcome without your professional assistance. A stressful time made a lot easier.
Nicole Rowe gave such excellent service that it made everything so easy – even though selling property is considered one of life’s biggest challenges. I was so glad that Nicole assisted me from whoa to go – as they say. I found her extremely personable and very professional in her approach. Nicole gave prompt advice, which was so amazing in this day and age.
Thank you Ben for your professional and engaging approach to our elderly mother’s sale of her one and only ever house built 67 years ago shortly after she arrived in Australia from the Netherlands and started a family of eight children. You brought the real estate agent, auctioneer and others together to seamlessly achieve a harmonious team dedicated to produce a stress free outstanding sale. You always kept us informed throughout the process with integrity and understanding which comforted my mother during such an emotional time for her in leaving her home of 67 years. Again, thank you Ben, you are a true gentleman and, a fantastic Vendor Advocate.
Nicole Rowe was the single biggest factor in helping us achieve a sale that exceeded our expectations. Throughout the whole process she acting professionally and decisively, from helping us to understand all the stressful processes to recommending and supporting us in decisions we made about the sale. Sincere thanks to Nicole – I highly recommend her to anyone selling their home and wanting a passionate, professional advocate.
Cameron Parker is an outstanding person who went above and beyond our expectations when selling our properties. Each time we had decided to put our 5 properties on the market, we have contacted Cameron. Whilst selling 3 of our properties we have been traveling throughout Australia and thought it would be a nightmare with paperwork but Cameron made this seem so easy with very little stress to us. Cameron has been our vendors advocate and who has achieved amazing results for us. If we were ever to sell again we would not hesitate to contact Cameron.
The reason we first sought Cameron out to help sell our property was because we had engaged a local real estate agent and we lost confidence with them and they lost interest in selling our property. We were stressed with dealing with the agents. After Cameron came on board everything just fell into place and we stressed less.
Many thanks to you Cameron.
We are very happy with the sales result and the entire process was easy thanks to our advocate Ben Reid. Everything was effortless and well managed, our options were clearly explained every step of the way and given how many people told us it would be stressful to sell our home, it was a pleasant surprise to find that it wasn’t stressful at all. He coordinated all parties, kept us well informed and gave us the information, advice and market expertise to make informed decisions throughout the process. Ben and the team are highly recommended by us! We knew we had made the right decision from day one.
Ian Stewart was a lifesaver. I was so stressed and confused from talking to so many real estate agents, all of whom gave me widely different expectations on what my home might sell for. Ian calmly took over the reins and acted as a buffer between me and the agent. He very patiently and slowly took me through the whole property selling process. He never advised me, just gave me several options to each step of the process. He went out of his way to help me, for example I was having a few paperwork problems and he wanted to spend half a day round trip driving to resolve all the issues. He was so kind and thoughtful which extended after the sale of my home. I can’t thank him enough for all his help and would happily recommend him to any home seller.
