"Nicole has been in touch with us since June 2016 (sold September 2017). She has been great with communicating with us all through the sale process and after."

Alina & John Roszczyk – Rowville

"I would just like to thank everyone I dealt with, whether on the phone or in person. I rang the office back in March feeling very overwhelmed and anxious about what was ahead of me. From the office staff who led me to "The Moving Hub", through to the ladies at the packing company "Peter Sadler" removalists, and National Storage, everyone made my job so much easier. Nicole Rowe was just fantastic. She led me through the selling process, found a conveyancer, selling agents and just made everything clear, plain and understandable. Everyone was great, so thank you all so much. I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone I dealt with."

Debra Reid – Kealba

"My name is Michael McCormack and I was recently assisted by your office in the sale of my property in Melton West. I initially heard your advertisement on the radio and decided to give your booklet a read. I found the information informative and decided that I did indeed need assistance in selling my first home. I must admit that I was a little skeptical that all that assistance would be provided basically at no extra cost to me. I am a "if it seems too good to be true it usually is" kind of person. I am more than happy to openly admit I was wrong in this case. I initially met with Nicole Rowe in June this year (2017). I cannot speak highly enough of Nicole. Her professionalism, knowledge and friendly personality immediately put me at ease in the process. She was not pushy and was more than happy to explain anything required. We took some weeks to complete some renovations before being ready to go on the market. Nicole stayed in touch with us at regular intervals (but not too regular to be pushy or annoying) and was of help to us with some advice in regard to getting our house ready for sale. When we were ready to proceed Nicole was of great assistance in choosing a real estate agency and getting the campaign up and running. In the end I think together we made exactly the correct choice. It was great to continue to hear from Nicole in the weeks leading to our auction and to have her assist as an intermediary with the agent. She definitely kept them on track and I now she had our best interests at heart and not hers or the agents, an amazing trait from somebody in her position. In the end we had a great turn out at the auction and got a result that we could have only dreamed of four or five months earlier when I first met Nicole. So needless to say my wife and I were extremely happy with the overall result. There was a small hiccup or two during the settlement process but Nicole was there to help me out even when I'm sure she didn't really need to, even responding to a text message after hours on a Friday afternoon which was amazing and was a big help to us and put my stressed mind at ease. So in conclusion, thank you for providing the service you do. I have definitely spoken praises of your office and service and would not hesitate in recommending anyone to you if they were thinking of selling. in regard to Nicole, it was great to meet and work with her, she is a credit to your office and you should know how great she is at her job. I can't imagine how everything would have happened without her."

Michael McCormack – Melton West

"I highly recommend the services of Ian Reid Vendor Advocates and was very pleased with the service Ian provided as BUFFER between vendor and appointed, Real Estate Agent. I would engage the services of Ian Reid Vendor Advocates without hesitation."

Eugenia Chudacek – Parkville

"I would like to sincerely thank you formally for assisting and generating the sale of my house at Queenscliff. You were more than a Vendor Advocate as you were also my Mentor Support. From the first meeting with you I had the utmost faith in your ability to get good results. Your organisational skills were superb, particularly in arranging an onsite meeting out of Melbourne and interviews with three praiseworthy Estate Agents. This was especially appreciated as I needed recommendations of reputable agents having little faith in the idustry because of past experiences. Your communication skills are outstanding, which resulted in me being kept in the picture throughout the entire journey. Your patience, care and extensive experience in real estate enabled a very good result and alleviated pressure on me as the vendor. Ian Reid Vendor Advocates are fortunate to have such a consummate professional courteous gentleman representing the firm. It has been a pleasure working with you and feel free to use this email as a testimonial."

Trish Ryan – Queenscliff

"This was the second time I have engaged Ian Reid Vendor Advocates to sell a property. Your assistance this time was equally as professional as last time. I trusted you with a property that was to provide me with the funding of my superannuation retirement and from the day we started the process I was confident in your knowledge and professionalism. Thank you for keeping me regularly updated. It was very re-assuring to receive constant updates. Thank you for taking away the pressure of the process of selling a property, something I find overwhelming and fearful. I can't speak highly enough of the service you provide. And I can't speak highly enough of the estate agent David who you engaged to sell the property. David was equally as professional as yourself and as pleasant. And finally thank you for achieving a fantastic result on the sale of the property."

Maureen Canzano – Norlane

"Selling a house in a small country town presents a number of challenges that our urban cousins would not be aware of. After having chosen an agent we spent the next six months constantly calling for updates and finally being told that he 'didn't know what to do next'. We were made aware of the Ian Reid Vendor Advocates through conversations with an acquaintance. They reported that they had had a good outcome when selling their property; we decided to investigate this option. After contacting the organisation Ian Stewart contacted us and drove 150km to explain their mode of operation. We were impressed with their offering and decided to place the sale of the property in their hands. The contrast between the previous agents and Ian Stewart was eye opening. We felt that we were finally dealing with a professional who presented a coherent sales plan. His suggestion of an agent to manage the sale process and his constant monitoring of their performance relieved us of a great deal of stress. The first significant difference was the regular updating of the progress of the sale process and suggestions as to the best way forward. Selling a home is an emotional experience. Ian's knowledgeable and calm approach helped to make this a less stressful episode. I have no hesitation in recommending the Ian Reid Vendor Advocates and in particular Ian Stewart to anyone selling a property."

Janet Russell – Newstead

"Please accept our heart felt thanks for helping a couple of oldies through a streesful time. Your professionalism was suburb and your friendly manner gave us a lot of confidence. You kept us aware of developments all the time and provided expert information which allowed us to make the right decisions. Once the sale of our home in Langwarrin went through, you went over and above the call of duty and helped us in the search for and coordinating the purchase of our new home in Mildura. You are a true Gentleman and we would thoroughly recommend the use of your services and Ian Reid Vendor Advocates to anyone selling a home. Thank you, too, for the bottle of bubbly. We will open it to celebrate moving into our new house.  "

Peter and Lesley Thompson – Langwarrin

"Outstanding   We would like to convey our sincere thanks to Michael for the personnel attention and advice leading up to, and through to the successful sale of our property in Ivanhoe. On the first meeting we felt assured that we were in good hands, and this gave us the confidence to cope with the emotions that go hand in hand with selling your property. We will gladly recommend Michael Collins and Ian Reid Vendor Advocates to anyone who needs to sell their property.  "

Julie Adams – Ivanhoe

"Extremely happy Michael Collins made the recent sale of our investment property a very easy process. He was a wealth of knowledge and communicated with us each step of the way, ensuring we understood what was happening. We felt he was looking-out for us and truely had our best interests at heart. He helped us make the right decisions, at each stage, even in the heat of our auction. We achieve an excellent results, which I feel we wouldn't have achieved without his guidance. We would definitely recommend Michael to our family and friends and will use his services again if/when we need to sell.  "

Philip Meehan – Bayswater

"Selling made easy   Michael Collins made selling my home an easy process with his constant contact to make sure I understood all communication, right up to the successful sale of my home. He was a pleasure to have as a support and knowledge of the market."

Bernadette Kennedy – Lower Templestowe

"A Very Grateful Vendor – Our Mother Thanks to the advice and guidance provided by our advocate Michael Collins the auction result on Saturday 21st October has provided great comfort to our mother and the family knowing that our mother will be financially secure as she embarks on the next phase of her life. From the first day we met Michael we were impressed with his calm manner, his obvious knowledge, his experience and his willingness to work with the family throughout the campaign, always keeping us well informed of developments along the way. The family was provided with a number of agents to consider, meeting those agents, reading their proposals and in a discussion with Michael choosing the agent in whom we had the greatest measure of confidence. In those discussions with Michael we were also given the opportunity to establish the timing, the preferred marketing, the settlement period and the commission to be agreed upon. Michael and the agent provided us with sound advice on the presentation of the property, both inside and out with a particular emphasis on it being an ideal family home. This proved to be sound advice when it was purchased by a family with that purpose in mind. Michael also provided assistance in arranging a sworn valuation, a garden clean-up, the choice of a solicitor and on the day, the live streaming of the auction which proved to beneficial for our mother who was unable to attend. Whilst we may have had the odd periods of doubt along the way we couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. Ultimately we cannot thank Michael and Ian Reid Vendor Advocates enough for making the process as stress free as possible and looking back we are amazed at how smooth it has been from start to finish. After our experience we would have no hesitation in recommending Ian Reid Vendor Advocates."

Bruce Smith – Reservoir

"Professional, Friendly and Stress free We would like to congratulate your advocate Michael Collins on the way he helped us to sell our home. From our first meeting with him we were put at ease with the selling cycle. His explanation of choosing the agent, negotiated sale v auction, then the proposed fee structure, we were never pressured into choosing something we didn't want. The chemistry between Michael and the choosen agent was excellent, both complemented each other in the tight schedule we gave them to sell the home. The end result was our home was sold 4 days after our first OFI, with us recieving lots more money than the independent valuation, or our own expectations. We would not hesitate to recommend Ian Reid Vendor Advocacy to any of our friends, and it certainly takes the pressure away from selling your home, and it does not cost you any more money."

Alan & Ann Lonsdale – Greensborough

"Confidence with every step. Sincere thanks to Vendor Advocate Michael Collins whose calm and rational approach gave us confidence with every step. His presentation, analysis and explanation helped us to make decisions with no stress. Under his guidance we achieved a fantastic result exceeding our expectations. We would certainly recommend Michael and Ian Reid Vendor Advocates to everyone."

Gary Cunningham – Watsonia

"Service like no other - Well Done! Selling a house is something most people don't do very often and when you do its a pretty daunting task. Who do you choose as your agent, who do you stay away from, if work needs to be done to the property, who do you choose?? We contacted Ian Reid Advocates to get some assistance and Sue Woollard was assigned to help us with the process. Sue came to our house and explained the process to us and we decided to engage her to sell our investment unit. Sue organised everything, even us. She gave us suggestions for the things we needed to do and once we agreed she put the wheels in motion. From a valuation, agent, cleaning, repairs, staging, solicitor and strategy, everything was discussed and agreed upon. When ever something needed to be done, Sue would ring us and advise whatever it was. If it was not for Sue the property would not have sold so quickly because she project managed everyone, including us. The price was decided and although it was less than we had hoped, with Sue's advice we agreed and this led to a quick sale and ultimately money and time saved. I would not hesitate to recommend this advocate service to anyone, and in particular Sue. When we sell again she will be the first person I will contact and would advise an anyone else to do the same. A big thank you to Sue Woollard."

Trevor Smith – Richmond

"Great Service & Result A heartfelt thanks to Sue Woollard for her service and professionalism. It was difficult to say goodbye to the family home but Sue made things easier, explaining the steps needed and always being available for advice. Sue was not only professional and knowledgeable, she offered a personal touch and cared for how we were doing. Thanks to her strategy we have achieved a great result. Have already recommended Ian Reid Vendor Advocates and Sue Woollard to family and friends."

Arthur & Dario Pamich – Altona Meadows

"Success - Thanks to Cameron Parker , Ian Reid Vendor Advocates   We recently sold our home with Ian Reid Vendor Advocates with Cameron Parker driving our campaign from initial meeting through to the signed contracts - the later as of yesterday . It was obvious from our first meeting that Cameron is not only passionate and results driven, he also has the developed professional skill sets to gain a successful outcome . Cameron maintained regular contact at all stages from meeting with us in person , telephone , texts and emails . Cameron was 'front and centre' directing activities with our campaign. Through Cameron's recommended selection of the Brad Teal representatives- Andrew Butler and Kate Lawton we had more inspections in two weeks than we had in the preceding three months with our previous campaign . I would not hesitate in recommending the services of Cameron Parker and Ian Reid Vendor Advocates."

"Cameron Parker is a LEGEND!!!!!   This was the first time I have used Ian Reid Vendor Advocates and I was very happy with the outcome but more importantly my advocate Cameron Parker was fantastic. We hit it off from the word go and had a few laughs along the way. Cameron was so easy going from our first meeting and he knew exactly what I wanted and kept me informed all the way and at Auction he was still fighting for me to the end, that say's a lot about the man going the extra for the client. If anyone would like to used this sevice I highly recommend Cameron Parker as your go to man."

To my surprise Cameron was very informative and professional from the outset. He selected the agent. He kept us informed throughout the process.

We were so happy with Luke and the Vendor Advocacy service that he is now assisting our daughter with the sale of her house.  "

Steven & Lorraine Wilson – Mill Park

"

Don't sell a property without the help of Ian Reid Advocates (and make sure you ask for Luke)

 From our first meeting with Luke Scanna we knew we had someone that would be on our side. Luke came to our house and we had a chat about what we were thinking of doing. He provided advice and guidance without any pressure to sell.
We have subsequently sold 2 properties with Luke's assistance this year, the first sold off-market without any advertising campaign (70k over the valuation) and the second sold 2 weeks prior to auction. Luke worked with the real estate agent that we selected based on his advice and we did not deal with them at all.
Luke also introduced us to a great conveyancer who we would also recommend.
Selling property is stressful time, but having Luke guide us through the process we could not be happier.
We also bought a property during this time and although this is not what a vendor advocate normally does, he was happy to provide valuable advice based on his 30 years real estate experience.
"

Robin & Claire Luber – Fitzroy

"Thankyou! I felt comfortable with Luke Scanna at the first meeting and contacted him, one year later, when I was ready to sell. Luke was respectful, thoughtful and professional and instilled the confidence I needed that I was "in good hands". Throughout the process of selling he was pleasant and informative, providing me with all I needed to proceed. His dealings with the agents was always friendly yet I knew that he was always placing my interests first. The result of the successful campaign was brilliant."

Sheila Boulton – Ringwood East

"A big thank you! When we made the decision to sell our home of 22 years one of my brothers suggested I contact Ian Reid Vendor Advocacy. Luke Scanna called to make an appointment and I was impressed with the advice and relieved to have the worry and burden of selling taken away. Luke was able to reassure me throughout the campaign including the choice of Agent. We sold and achieved a fantastic result. Many thanks Luke!"

Angelo Ledda – Greensborough

"Great guidance, advice and service Thanks to Luke and his team for all of the guidance and support in preparing and selling my property.

I would highly recommend Luke and his team for any vendor!"
