I have been living and breathing property most of my life. Having a father who has been in the industry for over 35 years, teaching, guiding and mentoring has made me extremely
passionate about helping people buy good property. I have seen too many people make mistakes over the years. Having lived in Melbourne for last 25 years I’m definitely considered a local around the Bayside area.

My team at Specific Property are unlike any other buyers agency I know. Firstly our clients are our family, we apply ourselves to each and every client as though they are our close friends or family. In that way we have always relied on repeat and referral business. We also limit the number of clients that we have on our books at any one time so that we can provide the best level of service possible.

Our attention to detail and understanding of what makes a good property are unparalleled. We go above and beyond for our clients to ensure you are matched with the right property for your budget. We offer a free consultation to introduce you to the services that we offer and discuss your property needs.
By taking the time to get to know you, we can truly understand your desired property preferences. We do this by compiling a detailed brief of your non-negotiable’s, as well as your desires for a perfect property. We use this brief to outline a tailored acquisition strategy to match properties that suit your needs.
Once the brief and acquisition strategy is complete, we move onto the search phase of the process. We have an unrivalled network of selling agents and coupled with our proprietary sourcing system, we find and inspect a list of on and off-market properties and condense into a shortlist for you to review. Some of the analysis that goes into our property search includes assessing a properties floor-plan room by room, aspect and ventilation, the location and the property’s development potential. Also evaluating recent sales data of comparable properties in the area and providing an estimated likely purchase price.
We make the buying process as smooth as possible and take the hassle out of negotiations.

Let’s face it, buying a home in Melbourne can be an all-consuming process, whether it’s the first time you’ve done it or it’s something you’ve been through on numerous occasions. For some, it’s overwhelming and stressful, while for others, it’s the investment of time that creates the greatest amount of burden…
But there IS help available!
If you’re looking to purchase a new property, you should consider engaging the assistance of someone who is solely on your side, representing your interests and nobody else’s; that’s where Abode Advocacy Group enters the picture.
Matthew and Dion have extensive experience within the Melbourne real estate industry, with a combined tenure of around 20 years. They worked together as a highly successful sales team for a substantial period but realised upon reflection that not all aspects of the role brought them the same level of satisfaction. There was a definite sense of achievement in selling a home for a good price, but the feeling didn’t come close to the enjoyment they got out of securing a home for an excited first homebuyer, an appreciative downsizer, or the many buyers in between.
They understand how agents think and operate because they’ve walked in those shoes. Now on the other side of the fence, they’re in a prime position to be of service to those seeking assistance to buy a Melbourne property, and after all, who doesn’t want a real estate whisperer as an ally when undertaking one of the most substantial financial transitions of their life? You’d hire an architect to design you a home, a doctor to diagnose a serious ailment, and a lawyer to provide you with representation if you were in legal trouble. So why would you not want an even playing field when buying a home from an agent who is representing a vendor? Engaging the services of a buyer advocate helps you level up.
Matthew and Dion strongly believe that all buyers should have access to buyer advocacy services and pride themselves on tailoring a package offering only the services and expertise each buyer requires. They appreciate that a one size fits all approach isn’t optimal, and this is why they spend the time at the beginning of the relationship understanding exactly what they can do to help deliver the
outcome you desire.
As a client of theirs, you’ll reap the rewards of the trusted relationships they have built with agents across Melbourne, allowing access to off-market properties and those that are about to launch before they hit the public eye; though maybe you’ve already found your dream home, and just want representation in a negotiation or someone with a proven strategy to bid confidently for you at auction. No stress; we’ll be by your side and happy to be your voice.
Abode Advocacy Group work all over Melbourne and look forward to having a no-pressure, no-obligation discussion with you when the time is right.
