This was our first time using a property advocate to purchase an investment property. We could not be happier with the result. Tony does an amazing job of keeping you informed and sending detailed reports of every property that he inspects. It has been a pleasure working with Tony on this journey from start to finish. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a property.

Initially, the purchase of my first home looked to be both an exciting and truly daunting process. Feeling like a very small fish in a big pond, I contacted Tony from The Advocates who, from our first phone call to the final congratulations, ensured that the entire process was as enjoyable, understandable, and successful as it could be for me. Based on my experience, I can honestly and confidently give nothing but my highest recommendation regarding the services of Tony and The Advocates. 

I am now looking forward to moving into a beautiful house to make a home, and should anything else ever catch my interest, Tony will be the first person I call.

We are two busy young professionals who attempted to buy our first home during a pandemic and the subsequent property boom. We are so glad we had Tony and Michael to help us. They took the time to truly understand our needs and give us clarity around what to look for. Throughout the search, Tony was proactive, organised and consistent. He was always easy to talk to, professional and honest in his opinions. We learnt so much from him and have saved ourselves a lot of wasted time and stress by engaging someone to be on our side in the home buying process.

Incredibly happy with our experience with The Advocates! We engaged Michael to assist us with buying a property on the Bellarine Peninsula during the Melbourne lockdown so we had the added challenge of being unable to view the property ourselves in person. Michael went above and beyond in giving us full confidence in our purchase; answering all the questions and concerns we had and being readily available during the whole process. Definitely worth the investment and we will certainly use them again. I would recommend them no matter the location/budget or property type.

Tony has been a tremendous help with the search for my first home. 

He is very patient, knowledgeable and negotiated the best price ever for my new place. Throughout the process, Tony remained professional and communicated with me every step of the way, and it all went smoothly. 

I am very grateful that I found Tony and have recommended him to my friends and colleagues. I will definitely use him again for my next purchase! Thank you Tony.

Buying a first home presents many challenges to those who lack experience and knowledge, or both. Sarah and I were recommended to consult a buyer’s advocate, and more specifically Tony Rindfleisch to address these gaps. Prior to engaging Tony as our advocate, we found that he was extremely patient and happy to answer any and all of our questions. More importantly he provided us with the confidence that engaging a buyers advocate was a good decision. Once engaged, Tony conducted his business efficiently and professionally at every stage of the property purchase, which we both regard very highly. Of note, was his ability to strategically negotiate. 

Whilst we did not utilise Tony to his full capacity for this purchase, we would be more than likely to fully engage him in future investments, and similarly to recommend his services to family and friends.

The Ryan clan are thrilled with the service you have provided to us. It is the bottom line that counts. By that very benchmark, our children are delighted with their townhouse while we are positively beaming over the acquisition of their duplex. The outcomes did not happen accidentally. We are very mindful of the great effort which Andrew in particular contributed in scouring the marketplace, highlighting properties at different points of the spectrum, allowing us to better formulate our own ideas by exposing us to the range of what was available and when moving through the stages where purchases were effected. It has been a pleasure doing business with you!

”The prospect of engaging with a competitive property market and searching for the right property at a good price left me feeling quite daunted. I sought help from Tony after he was highly recommended to me. Tony did not disappoint. At all times he has been easy to communicate with, professional and thorough. I always felt I could trust Tony to act in my best interests and have been impressed by his consistently high standards. After only a short period I have found a suitable property and Tony successfully negotiated the purchase for me against four other prospective buyers. Many thanks Tony!’’

Hi Michael and Lisa…
Over the years we’ve bought and sold 4 houses with the help of The Advocates. Michael’s expertise in gauging the property market has been invaluable, giving us confidence that we were neither overpaying nor underquoting on all our properties. 
He’s negotiated on our behalf in auctions and private sales with positive results. His help in readying our properties for sale enabled us to achieve a positive result in relatively poor market conditions on more than one occasion.
We would not hesitate to recommend The Advocates for all your property needs.
Thanks to you both.

After an extended property search, my partner and I found a lovely house in Flemington that ticked all of the boxes. The quoted range was within our budget, but we felt strongly that if it went to auction there was a high chance we would be outbid. Our best chance was to convince the vendor to sell before auction, but we knew that it would be very difficult to convince the agent to do so. We contacted Michael on the recommendation of a family friend; and brought him on to help us devise a strategy and handle the negotiations. Through Michael’s knowledge of the market, existing relationship with the agent, and expert negotiating skill, we were ultimately successful and are now living happily in the perfect home, purchased at a great price. Throughout the process Michael was incredibly helpful, providing great advice and going out of his way fit in-person meetings around our busy work schedules. We’re absolutely certain that we wouldn’t be living in our new home without Michael’s help, and we’d thoroughly recommend his services.

Kind regards,

Evan
