With a commitment to you, our client, our job is quite simple.

Tuning into your wants, needs, desires and dreams, it’s our job to work closely with you and your agent, to remove the stress of selling and amplify the excitement of buying. Bolstered by our intricate understanding of the property market, coupled with our industry experience and expert negotiation skills, we extend our savvy industry prowess across both the buying and selling journey.

Understanding your needs, we then develop an action plan based on your requirements.

If you’re seeking guidance through selling, our focus begins with preparing your home for sale and agent selection, before analysing/saving marketing expenses, and removing uncomfortable agent conversations around pricing and commission. Then, as the campaign progresses, our complex role spills to consultation with you and your agent to ensure the property sells with a maximum dollar amount, all while remaining focused on your best interests.

If you’re ready to purchase, we deep-dive into the analytics, researching and sourcing both off-market and on-market opportunities before shortlisting, completing the due diligence and of course, securing the home with an elite-level negotiation. Not finished until you’ve settled in, our personalized service extends assistance and coordination through the packing and moving phases.

Aware that every situation is different, our service mirrors a unique and flexible approach in order to extend upon your needs. Focused on achieving a rewarding experience and an enriching result, we push the boundaries and exceed service levels with excellent communication, to ensure everything is taken care of.

And as a boutique advocate, we have the ability to do that.


Our vision

We provide an excellent standard of real estate service and assist clients in achieving the best possible sales/buying results in the marketplace for their property. Bayside Real Estate Advocate’s objective is to prevent vendors/buyers from being convinced into unnecessary costs, reduced selling prices, paying too much, and avoiding unnecessary pain that can be caused to vendors/sellers by underselling their property by making uninformed decisions or simply selecting an agent whose main interest is to sell quickly and not for the best result.

Our mission is to change people’s lives on a daily basis by achieving them an exceptional sale price. We streamline the selling and buying process and offer a stress-free experience ensuring our client’s always feel supported and heard during and after their sales/buying experience. Our vision is to change people’s lives for the better one property transaction at a time.
