Find Out How We've Helped Thousands

of home sellers achieve fantastic results

"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."

Ildi & Alex R – Endeavour Hills

"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 sold

Sue 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!

Michelle B – Rowville

"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."

Andrew P – Wantirna South

"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"

Graeme J – Brunswick

"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."

Sue & Jim K – Croydon

"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."

Chris Z – Melbourne

"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."

Wendy W – Balwyn

"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."

Marg & Graeme J – Brunswick

"I recently sold the family home we grew up in and my parents built, an emotional time to say the least. With Nicole's assistance and support we achieved a great result. Nicole and the agent she selected worked well together and her advice at every stage of the process from staging the property to the auction itself was invaluable and reassuring. The result being a stress free outcome for all. Thanks Nicole."

John K – Ringwood

"As a first time seller, I really had no idea about a lot of the process of selling. Consultation with the advocate really helped clarify unknowns and the advice through the campaign resulted in a sale in a slowing market."

Chris C – Clarinda

"Fantastic support from Cameron Parker. We cannot thank Cameron Parker enough for his dedicated hard work in obtaining a great result for our property. Cameron provided invaluable recommendations on how to best prepare and present the house for sale. He is very honest with regards to the sale process and we found him very comfortable and easy going to deal with. Cameron was always available to talk to and his support throughout the whole process made us feel very much at ease. We would have no hesitation in recommending Cameron to anyone."

George C – Coburg North


Excellent and Invaluable Service

We recently sold our investment property through Ian Reid Vendor Advocates. Ian Stewart was our representative and throughout the process, he was really great – advising in the choice of Agent, keeping us very well advised of the process right up to and after the Auction. At no time, did we feel pressured to do anything we did not want to. We would recommend Ian to anyone wanting to sell their property. He takes all the stress out of the process and gives support all the way. Although the market was trending down at the time, he achieved the result we had hoped for."

Francis F – Wantirna

"The advice given by Floris was invaluable in reducing the stress relating to selling my property. I have no hesitation in recommending this service to anyone. The whole process was efficient and effective."

Reassurance and advice at any time

Selling a much loved inherited property on behalf of siblings, none of whom had had direct experience with auction, required objective assistance and professional advice; Sue Woollard of Ian Reid VA provided all of this and more. Sue returned calls promptly, provided likely scenarios, kept in touch throughout and explained procedures all the while remaining supportive and demonstrating skill and courtesy, up to and even after the successful auction. I can certainly recommend Ian Reid Vendor Advocates and take this opportunity to formally thank the firm for its valued assistance. *My dearest Sue, thank you for everything, I'm sure I couldn't have had the result l have without you in my corner, and will certainly spread the word 💚💛💜  You are the Angel Sue. Thanks for everything you have done for me to make the sale so easy and stress free on me, I couldn't have done it without you 💚💛💜*"

Suzanne D – Werribee

"I was happy to have Sue Woollard as my vendor advocate when selling my home.   Sue communicated very well throughout the entire process and I was very happy to sell prior to auction, with Sue's assistance. I would recommend using a vendor advocate to anyone looking to sell. ***** 5 star rating"

"Regular advertising backed up by good service. Now that we have completed our move and are about to embark on the next chapter of our life’s journey, it is timely to reflect, say thank you for your service, and extend best wishes to you and the staff of Ian Reid Vendor Advocacy for future success. The power of advertising - Over many years I heard Ian Reid, mostly on 693 3Aw but also sometimes on SEN 1116 SEN, promoting the company and his service. I didn’t take much notice, but Ian Reid Vendor Advocacy lodged itself in my subconscious. Last year, when it came to sell our house I recalled those ads and considered our options. Talking things over with my wife, Carmel, and finding some positive reinforcement among friends, we decided to give Ian Reid Vendor Advocacy our business. Good service - I’d like to acknowledge the professional support you provided, together with Jenny in your office, that gave us the confidence to toss around ideas with you and to largely follow your advice. Your selection of agents was appropriate, and we were happy with the service from Harcourts—the agent we chose. The sale of our home went very smoothly, and we feel that we got a fair price. Recent softening of the market leaves us relieved that we didn’t unduly delay. With thanks and best wishes to you all."
