‘Melinda is an outstanding buyer’s agent! She instills confidence in her clients because of her knowledge, experience and expertise in locating the right property and securing it at the right price. Melinda’s work ethic, attention to detail and negotiation skills were exceptional. My husband is risk averse and he was put at ease by Melinda’s professional approach, I can’t thank her enough. I would highly recommend Melinda to family and friends to help them during this often stressful time.’ – Melissa
‘As Melbournians investing in Brisbane, it was vital for us to have an expert team on our side who not only know and understand the local market but who are willing to listen and understand our requirements. Streamline Property Buyers were just that and more! Their proactive approach to communication was refreshing, not only maintaining regular contact regarding properties but when ruled out, explaining in detail why they did not consider them the right asset for us.’ – Gary
‘I have to say that you’ve made a mockery of how we’ve tried to purchase property in the past. I really enjoyed sitting back and receiving in depth information about each of the properties you considered and felt confident in the decision making process. You made allowances for issues I would not have uncovered at all and we’ve learned a lot in a short period of time.’ – Ivan

Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is a Buyer’s Agent?
As Brisbane Buyers Agents (otherwise known as a buyers advocate) we work exclusively for a property buyer in a real estate transaction. Whether you are a home buyer or an investor, we guide you through all of the necessary steps in the process. We search for and inspect properties on your behalf, provide full property due diligence services, negotiate or bid at auction, liaise with your conveyancer, coordinate building and pest inspections on your behalf and complete pre-settlement inspections for you. If you are an investor we can also coordinate the hand over to a property manager so the process is completely “streamlined” and “stress-free.”
I need advice on what type of investment property may be suitable based on my circumstance before I buy. Can you help?
Yes! Part of our Full-Service scope of works includes a one-on-one session with our Qualified Property Investment Advisor so you can be guaranteed to get advice that is tailored specifically for you to ensure the best possible long term investment results. This is a standard inclusion for all investor clients who choose to work with our team of Brisbane Buyers Agents.
I’m looking to renovate, or add value, to the property that I purchase. Is this something you can help me with?
Yes! Our licenced builder is able to provide cost estimates for renovation and refurbishment works before you buy so that you understand costs associated with this type of strategy. This is all part of our standard Brisbane Buyers Agent service.
What is the minimum amount on money I will need to buy a property using your services?
Our Agent networks are not spread far enough geographically to service all areas throughout Greater Brisbane. We specialise in the Brisbane City Shire and select areas within the Moreton Bay Region. At this stage the minimum property value for a house on its own block of land that we can help people to locate and buy using our Brisbane Buyers Agent services is around $550,000, so if your budget for a house on a single lot is under this, unfortunately we would not be a good match for you. If you are looking for a unit or a townhouse, depending on your requirements, we may still be able to assist you with a budget above $500,000.
I am not yet finance ready. Is it too soon to get in touch?
Not at all. There is usually a lot of work to do up front before we are ready to commence the search for you so the finance pre-approval can happen in conjunction with our onboarding process. Also, if you have not already commenced discussions with a Mortgage Broker, we can put you in touch with those who will provide an exceptional service to help connect you to the right people who also have your best interests at heart.
How long does a typical property search go for?
This is a very difficult question to answer as it depends a lot on the property brief that is agreed, as well as the availability of properties both on and off market at any given time. We have been able to help past Clients in as little as 2 weeks (this is not very common) and sometimes the search can take up to 3 or 4 months. Generally, most Clients are able to purchase a property within 6-8 weeks of the search commencement when our full Brisbane Buyers Agent service is engaged.
Why would I need a Buyers Agent in Brisbane when I can buy Property myself?
This is a good question and we love to explain the answer. The biggest problem we see is that most buyers don’t know what they don’t know. Our thorough due diligence ensures there are no hidden surprises after you buy. We also save our Clients time, provide access to properties that otherwise would not be available to them (off-market or pre-market properties) and provide a completely stress-free buying process. Having professional representation by a team of Brisbane Buyers Agents ensures you don’t overpay and that you don’t let emotions overtake your property buying decisions.

Are you paid referral fees when you recommend us to other service providers?
No. We do not believe in receiving secret commissions and will only make introductions when we believe you could benefit from the third party’s services. Anyone we refer you to has a proven ability to assist you through the property buying process and provides a premium, personalised service which compliments our own business model.
Do you provide a shortlist of properties for us to review and select from?
No not at all. Our search happens in “real-time” which means we review all properties that are on and off market that match your brief as they become available. If they are not suitable we would rule them out, but we would explain why so you learn more about our selection process. When a property becomes available that matches your brief, once we have performed our due diligence and inspected the property on your behalf, we would provide details to you and only if you wish to move forward would be then provide the full comparative market analysis and enter into negotiations with the Sales Agent on your behalf.
Do you inspect every property on our behalf?
Yes absolutely! This is critical to get an understanding of the building structure, layout and other things that can only be seen through a physical inspection. We provide you with ample information through our communication channel after our inspections to help you get a “real feel” for the property. this is all part of the service when you engage our professional team of Brisbane Buyers Agents to assist.
How much does it cost to use your Brisbane Buyers Agent service?
This depends on what services you require. You will see we provide a number of different services for our Clients. Our fees for one-off services are payable up front and our full scope buyer’s advocacy service fees are charged in two instalments …an Engagement Fee up front ($5,000+GST) and a Success Fee (once the purchase of a property becomes unconditional). You are welcome to book a discovery call to find out more about our service charges.
Are Buyers Agents Fees Tax deductable?
If you are buying an investment property, then our fees become part of the Cost Base for the purchase of the Asset. Talk to your accountant about how this impacts on your personal circumstances. If you are buying a home, then no, our fees are not tax deductable.
