Kristy is fantastic. Very professional and full of practical advice – she got to know us and was able to point us in the right direction to a property that would suit our investment needs. Very experienced and knowledgeable about property in Melbourne. Would definitely recommend her to our friends!
Alastair and The Property Bureau made buying our first home a breeze. With a baby on the way we had enough things to worry about, Alastair was extremely knowledgeable about the property market and was also able to source off market listings for us.
It was an incredible experience having the team working for us during our first home-buying journey. Kristy’s knowledge, passion and expertise made the process so seamless. Using Kristy to bid on our behalf was the best decision using her experience to secure the winning bid!

Frequently Asked Questions
A buying agent is someone who acts exclusively on behalf of the buyer. Buying agents help buyers to understand the market, source the right property – sometimes off-market, negotiate the best/lowest price and then manage and oversee the entire process. At The Property Bureau, we pride ourselves on understanding your property goals and assisting you to obtain them.
Sourcing property is a very time consuming and frustrating process. A reputable buyer’s agent will not only help you save valuable time and money, but also ensure you end up finding the right property for you, and one that meets all of your requirements. Buying agents are able to access more than just what’s online, we also have solid relationships with agents across Melbourne so we are kept informed of exclusive off market or pre market listings.
The duration of the property buying process hinges on various elements, such as your preferences, your budget, and whether the property is for personal use or investment. Typically, the span from initiating the process to finalising the purchase ranges from 1 to 4 months, in addition to the settlement period. However, this timeline can fluctuate depending on the specifics of your situation.
We provide assistance to clients aiming to buy or sell property throughout metropolitan Melbourne and, on occasion, in Regional areas as well. Our primary area of concentration is within the Inner to Middle suburbs of Melbourne.
At Property Bureau, we deliver complete support throughout your property buying or selling experience. As your dedicated buyer’s agent in Melbourne, you can anticipate transparent, consistent, and straightforward communication. Our team of real estate professionals will equip you with sound advice throughout your property journey.
Choosing Property Bureau will enable you to save time and money while minimising stress. Enhance your confidence in real estate transactions and make decisions based on facts, not emotions. Trust us, as your reliable buyer’s agent in Melbourne, to streamline and enrich your property journey.
Property investment is a long-term endeavour, so the optimal time to buy is when you feel fully prepared. In Melbourne, we carefully examine the multitude of ‘mini markets’ within each suburb, taking these into consideration alongside your personal circumstances. This meticulous approach ensures we deliver the most suitable advice for your individual situation in Melbourne’s diverse real estate landscape.
Absolutely! Buyer Agents are an invaluable resource for anyone considering buying a home. A Buyer Agent can help you navigate the complexities of real estate purchasing, from finding your dream property to negotiating contracts and closing on the deal.
First, a Buyer Agent provides expert knowledge of the local market – in terms of both current trends and future forecasts. They understand local neighbourhoods, schools and other important details that may affect your decision-making process. So if you’re looking to buy in a specific area, they’ll have valuable insight into what is selling best in that area right now – or soon might be selling best – so you can make an informed decision as quickly as possible.
Second, a buyer agent helps manage negotiations so that your interests as a buyer are met throughout the entire process – from making an offer to finalising closing costs and everything else related to getting the home at its ideal purchase price within required timelines.
We offer initial consultations at no charge. For our Property Advisory and Buyer’s Advocacy services, we have a pre-determined engagement fee. Furthermore, upon successful acquisition of a property, we levy a commission that is agreed upon before we begin providing our services. Since each client’s requirements are unique and our fees differ for each service, we encourage you to reach out to us to discuss your specific needs.
Yes, all our buyer’s agents are licensed professionals and operate under strict industry regulations.
A Vendor’s Advocate serves to alleviate the stress associated with selling your home or investment property. They offer comprehensive assistance through every stage of the sale, including pre-sale preparation guidance, conducting interviews with selling agents, helping with agent selection, and advising on the selling agent’s commission as well as marketing and advertising strategies. In collaboration with the selling agent, a vendor’s advocate aims to maximise your selling price, providing support throughout the entire sales campaign and standing by your side during auctions or when negotiating offers.
The most remarkable aspect is that this invaluable service doesn’t add extra costs on top of the selling agent’s commission; instead, we share the commission with the agent. Thus, there’s absolutely no downside to engaging a vendor’s advocate in your property sale.
