How this works: 

  • Buyers and sellers complete a property profile
  • The system automatically review these profiles
  • Buyers and sellers are messaged directly when a match occurs
  • Inspections are arranged directly between buyers and sellers
  • No real estate agents are required. (You do not need or legally require an agent to sell your own property)
  • Excellent blogs and videos from " how to negotiate" to " what is a contract of sale" and a  vendor statement are available.
  • Online support is available.

Step 3

  • We match your wish list with properties which match your profile, your price range and suburb.
