We work hard to provide one of the best buyer advocacy services in Melbourne.  We are actively buying properties in some of the best Eastern and South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.  Plus all major property hot-spots in and around Melbourne, such as, Mornington Peninsula, Gippsland, Ballarat, Bendigo and the Grampians.
Here are our clients' reviews of our services.

Knows the property market in Australia well especially in Melbourne. Very personalised service in terms of what type of property you're looking for. Most importantly, very honest and give recommendations based on buyer's best interest. 
Anyone who is interested in getting into Melbourne's property market but do not know where to start I would strongly recommend having a chat to Concierge Buyer's Advocates. You will only gain something out of it.

... We received excellent service from before we engage Rayson as our buyer's agent (he was very informative during our initial phone chat) up till we moved into our new home...

David

First Home Buyer

... Rayson has been very professional, responsive and has great knowledge of the market.
From the start where we listed out our criteria, arranging/advising on the need for building/pest inspections, the price range to bid for the property, and the future potential of the property, he has been very knowledgeable.
Highly recommended!

Rayson (Lieh) is a true professional. He has the knowledge to help potential buyers find their dream properties. I will certainly recommend him to my clients!

I've been following your blogs for a while and you mentioned to try and get in before the federal election last year. We put in an offer 2 weeks before that and it was accepted at what I would think is a bargain. The neighbour house is practically identical and they paid 30k more about 2 years ago. The price started going up after the elections and following your advice definitely helped us a lot throughout the journey.

We wanted a $300k investment property with good growth and godo cash flow.  We thought it cannot be done.  Rayson said "YES".  1 month later, we bought a $260k property, and it was leased with a weekly rental of $360, giving a yield of $7.2%!  The surprise came a year later, when the same property was valued at $330k!  An outstanding growth of 27% in a year!  Great work, Rayson!

Rayson's approachable, down-to-earth way of working makes working with him easy.  Fantastic advise, throwing curve-balls which we would never have considered.

... Came across Rayson in a Facebook group and he is kind enough to look into the issue for us, analyze it and provided us with some useful opinions. Thanks for your professional advice, and your promptness in getting back to us! Much appreciated!

Melbourne first home buyer

Bought a 4 bedroom house in Glen Waverley.  Liked the no BS style of engagement.  Straight to the point and very fact based purchase. 
Whole process from engagement to getting the keys took only 3 months.  Had never bought a property this fast.

Peter D.
Glen Waverley home buyer

We are first home buyers, and are unfamiliar with Melbourne property market. We thought we could save a few thousand dollars by buying our own properties.  We wasted over a year, put in a few unsuccessful offers, and had almost given up hope of buying our first home.  We came across Rayson, and engaged his first home buying service.  Within 2 months, we purchased our first home!  He managed to saved us about $10,000 off the price.  We saved more than the cost of engaging the first home buyer service.  I would certainly recommend him!!

Naveen K.

First Home Buyer

With their expertise, I managed to get out of a sticky situation which I had created.  I put an offer for a Rowville property.  Building inspection reported a few issues, but aren't major enough to be a show stopper.  I had a bad feeling about a particular issue, had a chat with Rayson and we managed to find a way out of the contract legally.  I received a full refund from the vendor.  Well done!!

EXCITED! In 8 months, the value of the property that you recommended has gone up by 8%! Great foresight! Glad that I trusted your recommendation.

Sorliya A.
First time investor

7% yield!
I started my investment with just a small budget.  I mean really small budget.  It was my first investment property, and I was nervous, went to these guys to find out what I could do for investment.  I was recommended a residential property in Gippsland, regional Victoria.   I was sceptical, but I was convinced by the historical sales and rental numbers for the region.  Coupled with low vacancy rates and long tenancy lease, the property is constantly giving me a very healthy return!  7% from day 1!  Way better than what a bank deposit offers.

Casey J.
First time investor

Great foresight!
Back in April and May 2019 when all property news were predicting a further 10% fall in values, Rayson commented that that is not going to happen, and he was suggesting that it could rise 5% by end of the year.  I wasn't that convinced, but he explained his logical reasoning.  I took up the challenge.  5 months later, the property at Burwood / Box Hill area is now valued at about 10% more!  Great foresight! 10% uplift in just 5 months, without me doing anything.  If I had to listen to gloom-sayers and mass media, I would be regretting now!
Trust the expert.

Terri X.

Satisfied investor 

Very knowledgeable buyer agent, professional and pleasant to deal with.  We bought an investment 2 bedroom apartment in Box Hill with the help of Rayson.  I should have used the property buying services for my previous properties.  In the bigger scheme of things, the small buyer agent fee in exchange for a truly stress-free property buying experience is money well-spent.  I have the Saturdays for the family!

Andre C.

Investor

We're Singapore based investor.  We came across an analysis by Concierge Buyers Advocates forecasting the recovery of the Australian Dollar from its low of USD 60 cents to AUD 1.
Got in touch with Rayson, and bought a so-called 'off-market' house. 
True enough, within 3 months of  our purchase, the AUD shot past USD 70 cents.  That's a massive 20% growth in 3 months! 
Great foresight!

I've just got to give Rayson the thumbs up for his integrity, frank and honest assessment.  My partner and I were searching for our 2nd home in Melbourne.  After our initial property buying consultation, Rayson was upfront and honestly suggested that we probably would not have benefited a great deal from engaging a buyer agent service. 
A five-star for his integrity.  I wish all buyer agents could be so honest.

Tony A.
Almost-a-client

This is a follow up review. Following our purchase last year, the Melbourne property market boomed!  Our property value grew a further 35%!
Now, if we were to convert this back into our native Singapore dollar, that's almost 70% growth in a year!
We're now looking forward to getting our next investment property with Rayson! 
Impressive recommendation!

20% Growth in 6 Months!

Buy your house 4 times faster with our buyers focused agents

This is a true story, names withheld.

2 groups of friends with similar budgets started searching for their first home back in May 2020. Over a year ago.

One group bought with a buyer's advocate's help.  The other chose to DIY.  How did they fare?  Is the convenience worth engaging a buyer's agent?

Story of 2 Buyers

Overpaid for property. Cannot help. Risk of buying on your own.

Client X came to us, to help search for his first home.  He subsequently preferred to save on buyer agent fees, and chose to go out on his own.


4 months later, we received a call from him, asking for our "urgent advice".  He got into a contract and could not get out of it.

How to buy a property in under 24 hours

What can go wrong in a house inspection? Do you know what to look for?

Getting a building inspection is always recommended.  But what can go wrong in a property inspection?  What are the benefits of a building inspection? What can a building inspection uncover?  When is a 3 bed house actually a 2 bed house?

Do you know what to look for in a property inspection?  What do you do after you get the report?


This first time home buyer made an offer for his first home after advice from the anonymous 'experts' in Dr Google and Dr Facebook.  Nothing prepared him for what he encountered.  He almost got ripped off and overpaid dearly for his dream home!  He's lucky that we came to us for advice.  In one look, something is very wrong with the property.

Ask us for his story.

Right Advice at the Right Time. Selling your property confidently..

This is the same client in our "20% in 6 months story" above.
In one of our catch up, we reviewed the client's property portfolio.  We noticed an oversupply in this area, and many investment properties were vacant due to the borders being shut, because of the pandemic.  Even though it was positive income generating, we advised the client to sell, as the market wasn't looking good.  The property was sold.  Shortly after it was changed hands, the tenant vacated the property.  It took a further 3 months to find a new tenant, despite a massive 30% rent cut. 
Right advice at the right time? PRICELESS.

Loss avoided! Know when to sell.
