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 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.
