The original advocate for buyers

The Advocates Property Advisory is one of the original buyers agents in Melbourne and Geelong for those looking for private, investment or commercial property. In 1998 we revolutionised the property search and have since saved thousands of buyers precious time and unnecessary stress.

We work hard to find, negotiate and secure your ideal property, whilst you focus on your family, career and other pursuits.

We’ll move you into your dream home quicker, find you the best investment property, and give your portfolio the bricks and mortar needed to grow.

Traditionally real estate agents work on behalf of the selling vendor.

We are the opposite – as a buyers agent in Melbourne and Geelong we advocate exclusively for the buyer, overseeing the entire process.

As Melbourne’s most respected property buyer’s advocates, the majority of our business is derived from referred and past clients. Over the past 20 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. The Advocates is committed to an exceptionally high standard of practice and a code of ethics that well exceeds the minimum legal requirements.
