Trusted and Patient Professional Advocate

Peter was extremely patient with me as both the market and my ideas of my perfect home evolved. I highly recommend Street Advocate, especially if you are time poor and keen to be sure you buy the right house for the right reasons. Peter came on my journey, which was longer than I hoped and guided me and challenged my ideas all along the way.


Quality service at all times

We were seeking someone to assist in the acquisition of an investment property. Peter listened to our request, an explored our needs and expectations in detail. His delivery was outstanding. We were engaged, consulted and informed. He was response to questions and gave clear advice at all times. He achieved an excellent outcome for us. We will use him again.


Peter was the ultimate professional and came with a wealth of industry knowledge

Following the passing of my father we made the daunting and emotional decision to sell the family home of 35 years so that my mother could move into something smaller and more manageable. After almost 18 months on the market, dealing with 2 real estate agents and growing disillusionment in a falling market we came across Street Advocate and Peter Sarmas.

Peter was the ultimate professional and came with a wealth of industry knowledge. He helped us select the right agent for the job and provided us with good honest advice rather than what we wanted to hear. With his keen eye for detail and access to quality but affordable trades we made some cosmetic changes that transformed the look and appeal of our home.

Peter’s communication was second to none; keeping us regularly informed throughout the campaign and always responded to our questions promptly and respectfully. It was with great relief that we achieved a sale in our price range after the 4 week marketing campaign, something the previous agents were unable to achieve in 18 months.

We would highly recommend engaging Peter when selling your home. He genuinely cares about his clients and providing a high level of service to achieve the best result possible. Our only regret is that we wished that we had appointed Peter earlier!


Place your Trust in the hands of an EXPERT!!

Our property journey with Peter Sarmas from Street Advocate has been nothing but outstanding. We first reached out to Peter to discuss selling our home and his advice and time spent deliberating all options were excellent. There was no leaf unturned with Peter which allowed us to successfully sell our property in what was a falling market. Peter’s professionalism and communication with us throughout the campaign was exceptional with weekly updates and property insight.

This led us to then fully trust Peter in our next phase of purchasing our dream home. It was a whole new ball game and yet again Peters guidance enabled us to feel at ease during the process. We went through the highs and lows of finding our dream home but put our faith in Peter and found what we were truly looking for at the price that was well under our budget.

It was fully worth the journey and we would HIGHLY recommend Peter and his services for anyone looking to sell and buy property, it's the best decision we made particularly as we do not buy and sell houses every day.


Expert guidance for selling property

Peter was appointed as an Advocate to help us sell properties on behalf of a deceased estate. From the beginning, Peter was friendly, professional and knowledgeable on how to navigate through what ended up being a very complicated situation. He enabled the process to be stress free, yet kept us informed at every step. His work ethic and attention to detail was evident throughout the process. We would not have been able to achieve a quarter of the outcome without his guidance and knowledge. We have never used this type of service before, but would definitely recommend Peter for assisting with selling homes.

An essential service for selling your property!

From the very beginning Peter was extremely approachable, friendly and honest with a vast knowledge of the property market and real estate.

At all times we were at ease knowing Peter was managing the campaign and sale of our property as well as liaising with the agent saving us a lot of time. He constantly kept us up to date during the preparation and marketing of the property and was there to provide further support during the auction.

The end result was nothing short of exceptional (above reserve) which we credit to Peter’s outstanding skills and expertise.

We would have no hesitation in recommending his service to friends and family and will consult with him in the future shall the need arise.

Professional and reliable

Peter Sarmas acted as Advocate on our behalf as trustees to sell our parents home.
Peter  developed a marketing strategy, proposed a timeline, interviewed and shortlisted agents then guided us through the interview process all with a sense of humour. Peter advised as to the documents, photographs etc necessary for marketing and we benefited from his keen negotiating skills.  At all times Peter was approachable,  professional and gave accurate advice. There were no unexpected hiccups as Peter covered everything in advance. He acted as a conduit between us and the agents and made everything seamless.
I strongly recommend Peter's services, particularly working with three trustees in a family situation. He has left everyone smiling.

Industry Knowledge Second to None!

We were recommended to Peter through a friend. Selling a property is a daunting task but Peter made it stress free. From the start he was positive and happy to answer any questions we had. His knowledge of the market was outstanding and gave fantastic advice from marketing to the styling of the property. He selected the best agent for us to obtain the best result. We felt confident throughout the process as Peter always kept the lines of communication open. We could not recommend Peter highly enough and are grateful to have discovered him!

Highly recommend

I would highly recommend Peter to anyone. From day 1 he was friendly, communicative and carried out all areas of his job to an excellent standard. The people he employed on our behalf to carry out the auction on the day and the furnishing of the house completed their side of the sale to a high standard. I would suggest to anyone who takes on Peter in the selling of their house to follow all his recommendations. Everything he suggested to us was on the mark and helped us to achieve an extremely satisfactory result in the selling of our house. Peter is an expert in his field and someone who we would not hesitate to use again if the occasion arose.

An expert to deal with every aspect

Looking to sell an apartment I jointly owned with an ex-partner, we were given Peters name on a recommendation. I never actually met Peter until the auction day, all correspondence was over the phone and email, with him giving recommendations all the way.

We chose to accept everything Peter recommended, as we believe in letting the experts handle things - and we had an exceptional outcome! He interviewed the agents on our behalf, negotiated a great rate for us (much better than we could have done), organised an amazing conveyancer and generally took all the day to day work out of selling a property.

I would recommend Peter to anyone looking to sell a property - let the experts get it done in the best way possible, with excellent communication at every step along the way.

Stress Free Selling

Peter is genuine, honest, and fully knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. He was always available to answer any queries, and provided excellent advice on the marketing of the property. From the time of listing I was kept well informed and provided with great feedback after each viewing. In what is quite a tough market, he made the process of selling as stress free as possible, with the auction result exceeding my expectations.

Highly Recommend

Peter Sarmas took the stress out of selling my property. He put forward and led an excellent campaign which resulted in my property selling for more than I could've hoped for. Peter kept me informed the whole way through and prepared me on what to expect throughout the whole process. I felt like he went above and beyond for me and felt very confident leaving the sale of my property in his hands as he has exceptional product and market knowledge when it comes to selling a property. If I ever need to sell a property again I would only ever use Peter, which is exactly what I have passed on to my family and friends.

Hugely recommended!

Peter was referred to us via our Finacial Advisor some 9 months ago, and we have been thrilled with the outcomes. Peter firstly met with us to clearly understand our goals, we mapped out a plan and executed. Firstly, Peter acted to get maximum prices for our existing apartments where I estimate through his negotiation skill alone gained us a minimum of $30k additional. Then in acquiring our growth property, not only was his guidance consistent and contact frequent, his negotiation skill was excellent and saved us a min of a further $10k on what we would have spent. Peter's performance in bidding on a property on our behalf was outstanding and had to be seen! The value won't stop flowing though as the property we have purchased requires some minor renovation, where Peter has a full list of great value trades to help us get the work done, well, and cost-effectively. We are very happy customers.

We loved working with Pete!

We worked solidly with Peter for over 6 months, he worked proficiently and professionally doing his very best to procure our investment property. Peter provided exceptional property knowledge and his in-depth research and due diligence was second to none, we have purchased a terrific apartment which met our goals and all our key objectives. Definitely recommend Peter & will use again.

Street Advocate made selling our home easy

Peter Sarmas took the stress out of selling our home, he guided us through the whole process including providing tips on the preparation of our home, trade contacts, choice of right agent and good commission rate, photography, even open for inspection on Sundays which resulted in the sale of our home at a great price. Peter is very thorough and has excellent communication skills, my husband and I would certainly engage Peter again as the whole experience was seamless, we would not hesitate to recommend Peter to anyone looking at selling their home.

Street Advocate takes the stress out of selling our property!

My father recently made the decision to move into a retirement community. At 83 he found the prospect of buying and selling his home quite daunting, so he asked my brother, sister and I for help.

As three individuals who worked full-time, with only limited experience in the property market, we knew that we weren't in a position to provide the attention necessary to make sure that Dad could get the best deal possible.

The best thing that we did was to engage Peter as our Vendor Advocate. He helped us to select the right agent for the job and between the two of them they managed a very successful campaign with an excellent outcome.

The well thought out process and the attention to detail meant that in a very short time frame we had the house on the market and a steady stream of potential buyers attending open for inspections. We were kept informed of progress via regular reports and updates.

Dad was treated with respect and patience. A calendar of events kept him up to date on exactly what was expected to happen and all events happened exactly as planned.

What a pleasure it was to do business with people who did exactly what they said they would, when they said they were going to do it.

The advice we were given as far as preparing the property for sale and for the actual selling process itself was invaluable and resulted in Dad getting a price that he was extremely happy with.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Peter to anyone who was looking to buy, or sell a property with the least amount of stress possible.

Using Street Advocte is a no-brainer

We found Peter Sarmas from Street Advocate took the hassle out of finding the right agent to sell our property and ensured a maximum result. By using Peter and his company we avoided the need to come up to speed on the most effective way to sell our property, as Peter has many years of experience to leverage on. Not only did Peter find the best agent and negotiate a great commission rate for us, his fee was included in this negotiated fee! He kept up to date weekly with all the details, allowing us to focus on other things. We got a fantastic outcome, $130k above the reserve price. For us using Peter again would be a no-brainer.
