Emily Wallace

Emily Wallace – Buyer’s Advocate Melbourne (Bayside & Southeast Region)

Are you currently feeling like there is little to no stock available that matches your ‘unicorn’ property? Perhaps you are tired of spending every Saturday morning traipsing out to open homes or you are simply overwhelming at the idea of sourcing the property of your dreams.  

This blurb is not about me, this is about you. What can I do for you? I am not your normal Buyer’s Advocate and therefore what I can do for your is also not ‘the norm’.  

If you are looking for an advocate who has been around for 10+ years, I am not for you and  I am more than okay with that. On the other hand, if you are looking for an advocate who is social media savvy, has a strong work ethic and an out of the box thinker, perhaps it’s time we catch up for coffee. 

Leveraging social media as well as agent contacts to source off market properties, sometimes directly with the owners, is a skill that has produced results for my clients over and over again.  

Let me ask you this, if you were attending a court case, would it be fair to assume that in most cases, both victim and offender would have legal representation? Yes? Then why would you enter a property transaction without someone advocating for you when the vendor has a real estate agent in their side? Now your probably nodding at the computer screen with this realisation.

Levelling the playing field for buyers is my mission and passion. I would be honoured to be a part of your next step in life. Please note I only represent home buyers, not investors, in the Bayside and South East region of Melbourne.
