We’ve Helped 10,000 Victorians Buy & Sell Their Dream Property

The service and advice provided by Ian Reid (especially Byron) was outstanding. They played a significant part in achieving the result we wanted for the se of property. We highly recommend them.




Nicole was great to deal with at Ian Reid. She supported me and stepped me through the whole sales process and has been a great sounding board when I’m not sure of something. Nicole was great at considering my position and what I did/ did not want to do prior to sale. She never pushed me one way or another, but guided me and talked things through, ultimately engaging a great agent. As for the sale – 11 days on the market and a super result which exceeded expectations! What more can a Vendor ask for!




Michael Collins and the team from Ian Reid did a fantastic job from helping us prepare the house for sale through to advising us during a tricky negotiation of the sale. Michael really helped us as we lived remotely from the property and having someone on the ground was invaluable.




I had chosen a house but was unsure about whether or how much to offer pre auction. As soon as i contacted Chris he talked me through the process of auction. He talked to the vendor agent and got the skinny on the competition. He arranged the building inspection, got a deal on the contract so i only had to pay 5% deposit. When I was trying to work out how much to pay he listened while I babbled and talked me through how to think rationally about it. I was so nervous I would have been a mess at the bidding. I didn’t go to the actual auction but sent my sister to observe. Chris slowed the bidding down and got it for me. He’s followed up with contacting the agent about some concerns I had and is still giving me advice about what I need to get in place pre settlement. Chris took so much of the stress from the nerve wracking process of house buying. Thank you so much Chris . Definitely, definitely worth every cent



Bentleigh East

The selling process of our been very simple and good through Ian Reid and the Sellers Advocate Floris Antonides. Floris kept us fully informed with timely updates and sage advice.



Cape Woolami

Claire was absolutely amazing throughout the whole process. We had previously been looking for approximately 18 months and due to time constraints could not keep up the search ourselves. We engaged Ian Reid Buyers Advocates and Claire made the whole process seamless and kept us up to date during the entire journey to buy our house.



Watsonia North

I was contacted by Nicole Rowe to work in conjunction with her to sell a property. The experience was nothing short of fantastic. She is positive, personable and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any family or friends wanting to engage a property Advocate. All the best for the future Nicole!




Michael from Ian Reid was an amazing resource to have on hand during the recent sale of our property. He guided us every step of the way and made the process so easy. I highly recommend Ian Reid Advocacy services and will definitely use them in the future.




The team at Ian Reid were fantastic to deal with from the start. From my initial contact with them from their website to the closing of the sale, it has been a fantastic experience. As I did not have much to deal with the process of selling a house, this proved to be a great way to do it. We got a fantastic advocate in Floris who did a marvellous job in managing this process from selecting the real estate agent(great choice in Harcourt and Jason’s team) to getting a good price and closing the sale. If you follow their steps you will get a good result. I thoroughly recommend Ian Reid Buyer and Vendor Advocates.




I could not be happier. My house sold in 11 days for a significant amount above the top asking price. Every single member of staff I engaged with at Ian Reid I found to be genuine, attentive, friendly and helpful. I seriously cannot recommend them highly enough.



St Andrews

Ian Williams from Ian Reid Advocates helped and guided the efficient sale of my house. Ian is very knowledgeable and answered all my questions.




Cameron provided fantastic advice throughout the selling process. He was very easy to work with, and was always available for a chat. Highly recommend.
