From Frustration to 3 Properties in 2 Years
Customer came to us, frustrated at being treated like a sausage by her previous buyer agent. It was an agency which advertised a lot in social media, and with a modern swanky office near Melbourne CBD.
Little did she know, this agency and its advisers were receiving payments from both buyers like her (through their "mentoring programme" fees), and commissions from the developers, from which they recommend and buy from.
Unsurprisingly, the client was put through a sausage-factory or cookie-cutter process, where she was told to buy a new house and land property X at a certain price Y, depreciate it to claim tax offsets against her income. The adviser was not interested in her plans for the properties, and would not listen to understand her needs.
We happened to bump into her at a property inspection. We met subsequently, client vented her frustration and decided to engage our services.
Two years later, today, she's the proud owner of 2 properties, and she is in the process of getting her second property in Glen Waverley subdivided and re-developed at Glen Waverley into 2 townhouses.
That is 3 properties in 2 years, when it is ready in a few month's time.
