The Advocates

Trustworthy and dependable

As Melbourne’s most respected property buyer’s advocates, the majority of our business is derived from referred and past clients. Over the past 18 years we have established a trusted relationship with the various agents who provide us with information on properties before they reach the marketplace, and also on properties never to be released to the general market. We are members of the REIV and Michael was elected the inaugural president of REBAA. The Advocates is committed to an exceptionally high standard of practice and a code of ethics that well exceeds the minimum legal requirements.

I have found him to be always diligent, careful, thorough and a shrewd assessor of the property market. His service is reliable, on time and reasonably priced.
- Tony Stewart
He talked us out of purchasing an inappropriate house and encouraged us to continue with the search and restored our belief that the type of house we were looking for did exist.
- Katrina Jordan
We are certain that is was your knowledge and industry contacts that enabled us to buy the property before it came on the market – one of the many advantages of using a buyer’s advocate.
- Martin Fry
We strongly believe Michael’s expert knowledge of the real estate market, and his professional relationships with other agents gave us the leading edge in securing our house.
- Lisa Dowd
The Ryan clan are thrilled with the service you have provided to us. By that very benchmark, Sarah and James are delighted with ''their'' townhouse while Peter and Trish are positively beaming over the acquisition of “their” duplex.
- Ryan Family
We would say that in our circumstance, a buyer's agent was essential. Michael was patient, good-humoured, understanding and knowledgeable. We are greatly indebted to him and his company.
- David and Jenny Happell
Andrew was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable throughout the whole process, from starting the search to performing the final inspection and even organising a plumber to fix a leaking drain pipe.
- Mike Waters
We have now had Michael work for us as both a buyer's and seller's agent, and have no hesitation in recommending him in either capacity. We will certainly use him again should we ever decide to purchase in Melbourne or nearby.

Overall I found Michael Ramsay Property to be an outstanding company that exceeded my expectations. Their guidance and care taken to meet my needs has re-established my financial position.
