Thank you Peter!
My family and I have successfully used Peter a number of times for both buying and selling and so I was instantly relieved when he agreed to facilitate the sale of my rural property. Peter’s selection of the right Agent was crucial in engaging someone who could see the value and potential of my unique property. His advice on preparing and styling the property with the facilitation of the Agent and her team of tradies undoubtedly increased its value and gave an outstanding result. Peter ensured that the marketing campaign was successful and insi...sted that there were set open for inspections, not something that all Agents will provide for a country property. The online ads and aerial drone photos showed the property at its best. The result achieved was tens of thousands above what other Agents had valued the property at. This sale was very difficult for me on a personal level and so it was invaluable for me to be able to trust Peter to take care of everything and ‘have my back’ when I wasn’t always available. I am now looking forward to using his professionalism, knowledge, negotiation and communication skills to purchase a new home. I highly recommend Peter of Street Advocate to anyone wishing to buy or sell property.
Selling a property
I was so glad we hired Peter as our Vendors Advocate he kept us in the loop just about everyday and advised us what should be done with the property to sell he explained how the auction should go on the day which was exactly what happened would not hesitate to use him if I was selling again
A trusted friend in the game.
They describe it as inching out along the razor - professional cyclists looking to judge their season's peak effort to align with the decisive week of their chosen Grand Tour. Months of training and dietary discipline thrown into the mix with a host of uncontrollable factors - breakaways, crashes, fatigue, sickness, mechanicals - not to mention the planning and tactics of 21 other teams all competing for the same prize.
We had bought off-the-plan with an eye to downsizing as a couple of empty-nesters. With a seven figure settlement waiting for...us down the track, the die was cast. Covid numbers were skyrocketing in Melbourne and we were warily considering the longer term fallout of the pandemic. What was going to happen when JobKeeper was wound back, with household budgets across the city already stretched thin to service eye-watering mortgages? Our plan(hope!) was to move into our new townhouse mortgage-free, but this was no slamdunk - this was our Grand Tour. Choosing the right time to sell was critical. Do we go early to avoid the predicted post-Covid downturn in the market and invest the proceeds, or go long - in the hope the market would recover and grow before our townhouse was built? How deep and long would the slump be? Everyone had an opinion. We decided to call Peter Sarmas, whom had helped us with the sale of my mother's house after she had passed away in 2019. We achieved an amazing result on that day. The sale of our own house was going to be an altogether different beast. Peter worked through the scenarios with us on our initial meeting in July. He organised a meeting with an agent he knew in our area the following week, after politely brushing aside - with reasons - our suggested agent from the grapevine. Peter is a very good judge of character, and has developed a network of excellent contacts across the industry - from conveyancing, though building trades, de-clutterers and stylists, real estate agents, finance and investment.
We engaged Peter has a Vendors Advocate to assist with the sale of our investment property during the pandemic. During such an uncertain time, Peter was able to give professional direction and provide a successful strategy which led to a successful sale. Having Peter as our advocate alleviated the stress usually involved with the sale of property. His open communication and direct manner was very much appreciated. We highly reccomend Peter and Street Advocate.
A sure hand in real estate
Peter's guidance in the sale of my home led to a great result. He explained the sale procedures and the methods to present and market the property with greatest effect. He connected us with impressive professionals in styling and sales. His help and encouragement, and his knowledge of strategy and the market, allowed us to show the property to its best advantage. We couldn't have done it without Street Advocate!
We sold for $400k over reserve!!!
This is the second time we have engaged Street Advocate. Peter’s exceptional knowledge of the markets he is selling in, and what buyers want, enabled us to improve our value prior to putting up for sale. When he first inspected our property it was established that we needed to underpin & restump, repaint, fix up the garden and engage a stylist to style the inside to what consumers want. Peter also thought strategically and directed the real estate agent to start the process with an EOI (expression of interest) sale. By doing so we were able to ...gauge interest in the property. It was also thought that if we get a large interest we will switch to an auction. Given the interest levels we switched to an auction, combined with all the property enhancements, we achieved $400k over reserve and a record price for the area!! Thank you Peter and I highly recommend your services to anyone!
Absolute must if you are serious about making the most out of the property market.
Engaging with Street Advocate has proven to be one of the best decisions I ever made for myself. Having just been guided by Peter for the third time, I can safely say that his advice and knowledge of the real estate game is extremely valuable. I definitely recommend Street Advocate. I would never buy or sell without him.
5 Star Service in Real Estate
We put our trust in Peter to sell our property in Port Melbourne, and I'm so glad we did. Peter did an out standing job! From managing the selection of an Agent, Staging the property for sale, managing the inspections and achieving a good result especially during Covid-19 when conditions for selling real estate have been tough. Peters promptness, attention to detail and knowledge of the real estate market was out standing. We would highly recommend Peter to any owner looking to sell their property.
Pofessional and always available
Peter's unconditional professionalism made selling my late parents easy and stress free.
He is always available and finds solutions which we needed during the height of the pandemic. Definitely will be using him again as I consider purchasing a new family home.
Fast and Amazing result during Covid-19
My wife and I have had a bad experience in the past with Real Estate agents due to our lack of knowledge in this area.
We were recommended to Peter Sarmas from Street Advocate to help guide us through the process of our property sale.
We found Peter to be very knowledgable, proactive and CLEAR with the direction we would undertake,
including guidance through the sale of our property during the challenging Covid-19 period.
Peter investigated the best agents for the program, providing recommendations for our approval.
Peter also recommended suggestions to refresh the property to maximise our sales potential.
Upon our agreement, Peter co-ordinated a brilliant transformation to the property and we were thrilled with the results.
Fast and excellent result
We appointed Peter Sarmas to help sell our home after seeing his previous work for other family members. He was upfront, honest, professional and available throughout the entire process. From advice on preparing the property for sale, to interviewing agents and negotiating commissions and sale timeline and strategy and seeing the transaction through to the end. His service became even more invaluable when things didn't go smoothly. Peter stepped in and took care of everything ensuring that everything was done exactly when and how it should ...be. Such a relief for us. Peter managed everything and we couldn't be more grateful for his excellent service and guidelines to get our property sold at such uncertain times. An excellent result and we couldn't be more grateful.
Peter was suggested to us by an employee of a friend who runs a business. Whilst initially being unsure if this was the right path to go, having sold property in the past, after meeting with Peter we realised his knowledge, experience and assistance would be invaluable.
He provided advice about styling our property so as to present in the best possible way, selecting the appropriate agent for the area, ensuring the marketing was done in the best possible way and and was instrumental in working with the agent to negotiate the price we achieved....
Peter brought home the bacon
This is the second time that I reached out to Peter Sarmas to sell my property. He acted as a conduit between me and the real estate agent to alleviate the inherent emotional rollercoaster in selling and the vagaries of the real estate market.
He put in place the daunting task of preparing the property for sale in a very tight timeline like organising the tradesmen, selecting the right agent, negotiating a fee structure, styling, etc.
He provided timely updates via phone calls and SMS's and advice throughout the selling campaign which coale...sced into the final outcome that exceeded expectation. I highly recommend Peter Sarmas of Street Advocate to anyone who is thinking of selling to leverage on his invaluable knowledge on market trend, insight, experience and advice.
We engaged Peter as Vendor Advocate to assist in the sale of our late mother's property. He interviewed estate agents and advised on improvements to the property to increase the property value. In a relative short period of time and with his knowledge and access to services the house was "made-over" at minimum expense. Peter kept in touch through the process and then reported back to us after the "open for inspections". At auction the result surpassed our expectations.
I would recommend Peter of Street Advocate to anyone contemplating selling their property.
We employed Peter to help with the sale of our property. My ex partner and I needed to trust someone that could act as an advocate and mediator for us, and help us to make some big decisions in a fair and realistic way. Peter was frequently available throughout the whole process and there every step of the way. His advice on how to prepare the house was invaluable, for example, how to enhance existing features and add finishing touches for selling. He also gave us valuable recommendations of other services that he referred us on to with no pres...sure to appoint. For us, it was invaluable to have Peters opinion on how to manage the timeline of getting our property on the market, which was overwhelming to us having little knowledge of the real estate industry. To say he took the pressure off this huge process is an understatement! It was truly amazing to have this support every step of the way, having someone on our side was just a huge relief when it felt quite intimidating dealing with agents.
