Expert assistance a must!

I engaged Cameron Parker to help me sell my inner city home. It was important to me to have expert help in a volatile market and to take the stress off my shoulders. It was the best decision! Cameron made suggestions I would have never considered but I followed his lead and my auction achieved a fantastic result. I could not be happier!

Thanks Ian Reid

SOLD - in a tough market

We cannot thank Cameron Parker and Ian Reid Advocates enough for his market knowledge, professional advice and excellent service during the preparation, listing and final sale of our investment property in what is currently a tough real estate market. Property sold within 12 days and with a short settlement. A little bit of luck on our side, but, a great result overall.

The best decision I made selling my home was choosing Cameron Parker as my vendor's advocate

I just sold my home for a price well beyond my dreams. So thrilled. Cameron Parker is a true professional. Friendly, no-nonsense and reassuring. He gave me clear advice from the get-go. Sometimes I was surprised by what he advised and questioned him. He always had good reasons and let's face it: he's the expert. I followed his advice and, as a result, I had every home-seller's dream – a bidding war. In a tough market! That is how I got the best price. Very happy and grateful.

Sale of 27 Pamela St Mt Waverley 3149

We believe assigning Ian Reid to assist in the sale of our home was a reward winning experience. Professionalism shown by members of staff was exemplary. It certainly aided to a less stressful time for my wife and I. Thank you Ian Reid and staff.

Amazing Vendor Advocate - CAMERON PARKER

We employed Cameron Parker by word of mouth, and are extremely glad he was recommended to us. He supported us right through from the early stages, suggesting how to improve our property for sale, keeping us informed during the weeks prior to auction and was there on auction day assisting and advising us. His support was invaluable, and I wouldn't hesitate using his services again. I highly recommend him.

Cameron Parker

From the very first meeting to the last step in selling our home, Cameron Parker was brilliant. Cameron steered us through every step of the process in the most professional, knowledgeable and supportive manner. Cameron was always available to answer our questions and provide sound advice whenever we needed it. We could not be happier with the result and highly recommend Cameron to anyone selling their home.

Great service

Chris, our buyer's advocate from Ian Reid, was very professional and a delight to deal with.
His duties were executed with clarity and we were kept informed at every step. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Outstanding service

We used Ian Reid's Vendors Advocates recently when undertaking the daunting task of selling the family home.
From the initial meetings with Ben Reid and then with our advocate Cameron Parker the process was made easy. Cameron Parker was a joy to deal with and kept us well informed along the way, he also was there to calm my nerves on auction day. The family is all very happy with the result we got and I would highly recommend Cameron Parker and Ian Reid's to help guide anyone selling their home.

An all round great decision

Knowing that I had an honest, friendly and knowledgeable man in charge of all negotiations helped me immensely. Cameron Parker’s approach was very reassuring and proved to be such an asset in the final outcome of my sale. Any advice that he gave was open for discussion and he maintained constant contact throughout allowing me to feel comfortable and confident in my decision making
I would confidently recommend him to anyone who asked

Best Outcome

Was unsure about what a Vendor Advocate could do for us, but our Advocate really put my mind at ease, his communication was direct and his plan tailored to our needs resulted in an outcome much better than we had expected. I highly recommend this service. Thank you so very much.

Cameron Parker worked hard and was always available and helpful. He kept his cool and he delivered in a tough environment. A professional.


They're ok

When it came to the crunch, they delivered us a $5000 on top of maximum offered.

Do u choose your own estate agents or once submitted by the person wanting to sell if they hve any ?
If one use your service does one hve to sign one or two contracts-eg one wth the estate agents and one wth yourselves?
Appreciate your feedback.

The person selling there home will use a designated agent of his/her choice. In my particular case I used the advocacy service to find a property for myself. Ian Reid buyer’s advocacy offers an auction day service where they will bid at auction for your choice of property once you have found what you want. You can then upgrade to what is called they’re co pilot property service where they can find you properties but the initial inspections are done by yourself first. Then there is the Full Service where they will source on market off market and private sale properties and do all reports for you. I hope this is informative and helps you.

Hi Mar B, thank you for the question. We will recommend the best agents within your area to submit proposals for the sale, but we are also open to including any agents you wish be part of the process. There is one authority to engage IRVA and the selling agent conjunctionally and commission shared by both parties. Please let us know if you need further clarification by calling our office on 03 9430 0000.
