"We worked with Ian Williams to sell our house in Mulgrave. Ian was fantastic the whole way through quite difficult circumstances. We sold our house during lockdown, having only had 1 in-person inspection before transitioning to online. Ian's broad knowledge of real estate in Melbourne assisted us to make the decision to proceed with an auction, where we got a great result. He worked really well together with our agent and I'd definitely recommend him to others."
"I am very pleased that we used Ian Reid’s Vendor Advocate Sue Woollard to sell my mother’s home in Box Hill South. I have lived in the one house for 42 years and therefore needed assistance and expertise from people familiar with house sales, real estate agents, markets and customer relations. Additionally, Sue’s frequent communications during extended lockdowns kept me informed, despite necessary changes to Auction and Open for Inspection dates and times. We are very happy with the result and timely conclusion of the campaign."
"We have engaged Nicole from Ian Reid 3 times she has always been professional and accommodating and referred trades to get our home ready in a timely manner and within budget. All our homes sold to our satisfaction."
"Dealing with Ian Ried has made selling our home so much less stressful. Nicole guided us through a tricky sale but made life easy. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend going forward. It was very reassuring to have Nicole's knowledge on our side.
Thank you again."
"I was aware of Ian Reid advocacy services, so I engaged with them to sell our home when we decided to downsize. Nicole did a great job from start to finish, organising all the relevant people, such as the building valuer, three real estate agencies, the staging professional, photographer and so on. This was during an on-and-off lockdown, but we were not in a rush to sell, so we got an offer close to the upper part of our price range. We might have taken a lower offer, but we took Nicole's advice and got a far better outcome."
"I was fortunate to have Nicole as my real estate advocate. The whole experience of getting my property ready for sale and the selling process was overwhelming for me but Nicole was so supportive and encouraging that I got through it and achieved a very pleasing result. Many thanks to Nicole - I'm a big fan."
"We were so fortunate to attend a seminar where Ian Reid Advocates were one of the speakers. We immediately signed up with them to assist in the sale of our house which turned out to be one of the best decisions we made. During the entire process Cameron Parker was so friendly, knowledgeable and always there to bat for us. With his guidance and suggestions, our house was marketed to it's maximum potential. Even on auction day he was there with us. We can't thank Cameron enough for all the work he did, constantly having our best interests in mind as well as keeping us in the loop at all times. Would highly recommend engaging Ian Reid Advocates."
"Tony and Ben really helped us through the process of buying our first investment property, and we ended up with a great house in less than 2 months during several lockdowns. Really knowledgeable and easy to deal with."
"The support we have been provided has been fantastic. They have worked incredibly hard initially to help us select the right agent and then continued on to ensure our interests were primary in the development of the campaign. Some say that agents and vendors don't work well together but they have worked really well together and for our best interest. Thank you so much."
"When a friend recommended I use a Buyer's Advocate to help purchase my property, I wondered just what they would add. Now I know! I worked with Claire at Ian Reid's to help secure a property I really wanted to buy. Her pre-planning and report were so helpful and her advice spot on. Then on the day of the auction, which ended up being on Zoom, she was amazing. Let's just say I'm glad she was working for me and not against me. Claire's determination just blew the other bidders out of the water and I ended up getting the property for less than I was willing to pay! A win all round."
"Nicole helped me every step of the way. No query was too annoying or trivial! She was very responsive and made the daunting process of selling my house streamlined and easy Thank you so much Nicole I couldn’t have done it without you 🥳"
"A shout out to Alex Campbell at Ian Reid for his outstanding support in assisting us select the right agent for our property sale and sticking with us throughout the entire campaign and sale. I can't recommend Alex highly enough."
"Smooth process to prepare the house and sell it, with following the advice and recommendations from Ian Reid Vendor Advocates."
"Nicole made the sale of my mother's home seamless and stress free. She secured the right agent and the best sale price, provided accurate and informative advice and made it easy on the family by covering every detail. Highly recommend Nicole and Ian Reid Buyer & Vendor Advocates."
"We signed up an Ian Reid Buyer Advocate, Claire Parkes, and secured a house in just a week!! We had been struggling on our own to purchase a house in a very competitive realestate market. Claire understood our property brief and budget. She was positive and reassuring about being able to purchase the right home for us. Our only regret is not signing up with Claire earlier. We can't wait to move into our charming home. Thank you Claire !!"
"Nicole, guided us from day one through to the successful sale of our home. The entire process was enjoyable and stress free.
Professional, respectful and very knowledgeable, Nicole gave current advice regarding the preparation of the home for sale, selection of agent and the appropriate marketing campaign for our home.
Nicole made herself available at all times and kept us informed.
We were very pleased with the service provided by Nicole, (Ian Reid advocates), and highly recommend using this service."
"After being out of the property market for a number of years it was reassuring to have an experienced person, namely Cameron, guide me from day one through to the successful sale of my home. Passionately involved my Cameron steered the sales effort. He gave current advice regarding the preparation of the home for sale, selection of agent, the marketing campaign, and negotiations with prospective buyers. Not only did he make himself available for contact at anytime, he kept in contact with regular progress reports. Thank you Cameron."
"Approachable and easy to deal with. Claire's negotiation skills and understanding of the property market greatly assisted a first home buyer like myself."
"Thank you Cameron for all your advice and support with the sale of our house. It was great to have you along side us from selecting a realestate agent, to advice on staging the house and most importantly on auction day. We appreciated you checking in with us during the uncertainty of lockdown while our house was on the market, and your humour and updates helped enormously. Going to auction was a new experience for us and the pressure we felt from the auctioneer to settle for a lower price than we wanted felt enormous... your calm and professional approach to ensuring our best interests were served saw us exceeding our reserve price and for that we are truely grateful. We cannot thank you enough for taking all the pressure out of the process on auction day. Highly recommended!"
"Thanks very much to Sue Woollard for her valued assistance in selling our mother’s property. We received excellent communication throughout, and using a vendor’s advocate definitely saved us much time and legwork in securing an agent. Sue’s expertise and advice was particularly invaluable in the marketing process. We also appreciated that she was always available, and kept us well informed and updated in all aspects of the campaign and auction. Thank you again!"
