"Anybody who is managing money for someone else has a legal and an ethical responsibility for doing the right thing and looking out for other people's money. This is really people's lives we are talking about here at the end of the day, right ?"
Dr Jeffrey Brown
If you're really keen to read about where we came from, who we are, what we stand for, what we do, and why we love it ... read on !!
Adviseable was born and evolved from Kate's vision to provide an expert Buyer's Agency service for those people who simply don't have the time to do this for themselves, but also need someone they can trust absolutely to help them purchase the best possible property. The personal touch is what it's all about.
Kate spent many years in the property investment advisory industry as a mentor and coach and came across so many property owners out there who'd been ripped off by property spruikers and so above everything else, Adviseable had to be a company with a mission, a strategy and advisers who believed in looking after the buyers FIRST and not be focussed on lining their own pockets with large commissions, like so many other agents out there are doing.
This meant setting up a "fee for service" product that ALWAYS has the buyer's best interest at its heart. Right from the start of our process when the buyer's brief is prepared (with risk profiling and property cash flow samplers) to the area decision being made together with the buyer, to the stage when a property is purchased, everything comes back to making the best possible decisions together.
After all, it’s YOUR money !
Adviseable was, therefore, created with this in mind, and has always been true to its mission. The client is the only one who ever pays for the buyer's agency and property finding service. We don't get paid by any marketers, developers or sellers of property of any kind. We don't sell house & land packages - we just don't market or sell property of ANY KIND. What we do do is source the best properties available at the time. Do we get access to off market listings ? You bet we do, and we scrutinise those the same as any other property. Many agencies won't like us revealing this, but there really aren't many "big secrets" to doing this. But there is a lot of skill, training and experience involved and we do it all day, every day. We know what to look for, where to look for it and what questions to ask. We are experts and we have been doing this for years.
If you're wondering about paying fees for this service then at this stage we ask you a question; why would you take advice on such an important venture from anyone who isn't a professional in their field?
Would you perform surgery on yourself, or even ask friend to do it? No of course not, you'd put an expert medical professional in charge of that. If you had to go to court would you use someone who simply looked slick, had a glossy brochure and promised you great successes? Of course you wouldn't, you'd employ an actual lawyer with qualifications and experience to help you navigate the intricacies of the legal system. And yet year in and year out property buyers who are making huge decisions that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, put their financial futures in the hands of well-meaning friends (well-meaning but NOT experts), get stung by spruikers, or pay hard-earned money to an alleged "advocate" with great marketing material but nothing that actually qualifies them to buy you a great property.
So... having gotten that off our chest, we ask that you always consider who you're approaching to help you make these big decisions. Check their qualifications, check their experience, check all their credentials, check the company they're working for, check their results AND most important of all, check their motivation. Who is paying them ? If the service is "free" then run a mile. Then it's not a service, it's a sale, you are being sold to from a stock list, and someone most definitely IS paying them commissions, and they won't be working in your best interest. And guess who'll be paying for those commissions that they get paid ? Yep, that'll be you, the buyer, in the inflated property price.
“…always consider who you’re approaching to help you make these big decisions.”
If you've made it this far through our story and the rant above and you are still interested and still reading then you might like to know that at Adviseable we pride ourselves on finding our clients the best property solutions for their unique circumstances and needs.
We literally pick up our phones and call agents. We take their calls when they offer us off market listings and we find you the best property we can. We do not have a folder full of properties to sell you. We do not process our clients like they're on a conveyer belt. We don't SWARM into an area like locusts buying up everything and pressuring client's into snapping up the latest "bargain" that might not actually be right for them - you know, that "HURRY HURRY HURRY, there's only 2 left" approach. We search for the property that matches the buyer, in the area that best suits the buyer. Do we have nice brochures ? Of course we do, but they're not all that glossy ! They give real information about real properties and real success stories.
