WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

We engaged Justin to source a property for us early 2016. We instantly warmed to Justin and felt from the outset we were in good hands.

We weren’t disappointed! Right through the process Justin kept us continuously informed and left no stone unturned in souring a property in line with our requirements.

Justin years of experience were clearly evident not only from the process he deployed but also through the relationships he built with agent &/industry contacts.

On auction day Justin was a fantastic support for us and we were very happy with the outcome.

We would highly recommend Justin and his organisation to anyone wanting to engage a Property Broker. The process was seamless from start to finish!

It was a great pleasure working with Justin on securing a property. He was terrific – diligent and always in touch about developments and new properties to look at. Justin went above and beyond, driving me to several locations, and was good company and incisive in his thoughts about the properties we visited. Come my auction day Justin provided an excellent person to bid on my behalf and that got me over the line with an excellent price. I recommend Justin highly to anyone looking for a highly professional and empathic person to help them find the right property!

Cheers

As a first home buyer engaging IPB was a sound investment for getting me into the market, in an area that I thought was out of my reach. Justin’s professional and friendly approach, along with sound advice throughout the process was really appreciated. I’m impressed at the short time frame it took to find and secure my apartment. I recommend Justin’s services to anyone who is new to the process or the Melbourne market and is looking for a timely turnaround.

Ann-Marie

First and foremost, a big thanks for all your care and attentiveness to our needs throughout the entire process of this sale. Nat and I have been thoroughly impressed, with real gratitude for the confidence and trust that we have in your work. Thank you, it means a great deal when we are so “far from the action”…you may have a niche opportunity looking after Aussie expats…!”

Again, many thanks from us

Mark

Your approach to this whole process has been fantastic and I cannot tell you how happy we are that we choose your company for our new purchase. I hope your business continues to flourish and if you ever need a recommendation please don’t hesitate to contact us. Also, as Mark said, becoming a contact for expat Australians could be a good avenue for you in the future. From a distance you made our lives so much easier and we are really happy with the purchase.

Thanks Justin

Natalie

As a first home buyer I was nervous about entering the market. Employing Justin’s services helped take that feeling away. Constant contact with market updates and potential properties to view I soon started to understand what to look for in a good rental property. I have just made my first purchase, sight unseen as I live in Darwin and I feel 100% confident that I have made the right choice based on Justin’s recommendation. Would I use Justin again? Definitely!

Thanks for your hard work.

I have been residing offshore for many years and decided I needed to purchase a residence in Melbourne in early 2015. I engaged Justin Dunne of IPB in February and provided a quite selective list of requirements. Through my efforts and his efforts we managed to centre on a particular property that met all the requirements. Though it was an EOA sale we went ahead and made a limited duration offer which was accepted in early March and settled in May. I returned overseas in late February and Justin handled everything except the conveyancing; including obtaining the Section 32 and contract of sale with some difficulty, negotiating to a successful conclusion, signing the contract of sale on my behalf and then taking care of the keys upon settlement. Throughout Justin was efficient and meticulous providing just the right amount of advice and communication.

Though mine was an unusual case, there is no way that I would now have a property of anywhere close to my choosing without IPB’s involvement.

IPB helped us through the daunting task of finding and purchasing our first entry into the realestate market. Their support and guidance proved to be invaluable as they helped us identify desirable traits, assess over all value, look past superficial aspects and navigate the legal and financial complexities of the final purchase. We’re extremely happy with the purchase and 2 years later we believe more than ever IPB found us a property with the right balance between budget, lifestyle and high value investment.

Jason and Anna

IPB, in particular Justin Dunne, has provided a complete and professional service with the purchase of my Australian property as well as follow up advice which has been of immense value to my future property planning portfolio. I highly recommend their services.

I was very new to the real estate market when I began looking for a property. I had some ideas of what I was looking for but not much sense if these ideas were realistic and affordable in an increasingly hot market. I live overseas so was relying on internet searches and family assisting to look at houses. I was getting frustrated at losing out on auctions and knew I didn’t understand the process enough to get a good result. I was worried I would make a mistake with the biggest purchase I would make in my life.

When I started working with Justin I felt encouraged immediately. Justin was very realistic and walked me through the process in a way I could clearly understand. He clearly knows the Melbourne market extremely well, and has years of experience he could draw on to answer my many questions. Justin gave me a frank and fair feedback when I looked at properties that wouldn’t fit the bill, and he was willing to check out properties that I felt interested in even when he thought they would go too high – and he was always right! On a brief trip home to Melbourne Justin ran around with me looking at houses. He found a house I would never have looked at online, but urged me to check it out – I bought it at a great price and have never regretted my decision one bit. Justin found the perfect solution for me, within my budget, with the features I wanted, and in a location I never thought I could afford. I am thrilled with the result. Justin keeps in touch beyond the sale and assists me with the rental process. He became someone I could trust in an industry that is hard to navigate and fraught with strategies and tactics that the average buyer won’t know how to work through. I am very thankful that I crossed paths with Justin. I am convinced that the outcome for my family as a result of this purchase will be tenfold more than had I done it myself. I strongly recommend anyone with doubts to utilise Justin’s services.

After revealing our purchase price in a pre auction offer that was rejected by the vendors we decided to engage the services of Justin to represent us at the property auction. He not only removed the stress and emotion associated with bidding but saved us a significant amount of money due to his expertise in the process. For anyone considering buying at auction, we would highly recommend Justin – his professionalism and relaxed approach won it for us. Thanks Justin.

Jean and Malcolm

We are a family of four, with 2 children under 3. We spent weekend after weekend dragging the children around to inspections, bid on multiple auctions only to realise the estate agents continued to fabricate the story required to get us to the auctions. We were sceptical of buyers advocates given how hot the market is and would they really add value outside of bidding at an auction for us? How wrong we were, Justin’s knowledge of the market and commitment to finding a house that suited us was truly a testament to his work ethic and ability to execute on his promise to us. We are now the proud owners of an amazing house in exactly the area we desired well under the price point we asked him to spend. I would not hesitate to use Justin’s services again or recommend him for any future prospects.

“Thank you Justin for delivering on your promise and getting us into the house we so wanted.”

Stefan

A friend recommended Justin to us when we began our initial search for a new home in Melbourne, while we were still living in Canberra. He came with a very strong endorsement and did not disappoint.

“Justin is very personable and was always available to respond to questions and requests. He knows real estate and is both thorough and professional in his work. Justin has a good relationship with many real estate agents in Melbourne and is keen to develop a positive relationship with those he comes across and doesn’t know. Yet, he is completely independent and is not working for any real estate group. When we were pushed by an agent to make an offer prior to auction on a property we were very keen about, Justin had a number of conversations with the agent so we could determine the best course of action.

We had quite a long list of important criteria in our home search, yet he didn’t give up and just kept searching and providing us with properties to have a look at either online or at open homes. Justin would get around to view the properties we felt were good possibilities and in our budget, and then give us his feedback about them. He also has deep and very valuable local knowledge and was able to give us good advice, or sometimes warnings, about certain areas. Come auction day Justin was amazing. He ‘didn’t give an inch’ while both bidding at auction and negotiating afterwards. He works to get the best possible outcome for his clients.

We had a very positive and enjoyable experience working with Justin. He was interested in us as a family as well as trying to find us the right house.

Susan & Allan

Thanks for all your time and the professional and friendly manner in which you dealt with us. We found the process much easier than expected, saving us time and worry.

Your understanding and experience in real estate was crucial and definitely worthwhile in the negotiation process.

Martina Stobart

Justin clearly explained how he did his job and kept me regularly informed of the findings from his research. He considered issues and made enquiries I would never have dreamt of.

Loretta Hoban
Farirfield

We are thrilled with the outcome of Saturday. We never really thought we would get it. I think we would still be thinking about it and looking on the internet if not for you. Only sorry we didn’t listen to your offers earlier.

Robert & Kelly
Ferntree Gully

Justin blew me away when he was able to buy me a 3 bedroom townhouse with 2 bathrooms, 2 living areas and a courtyard $40,00 less than the last sale in the block. I was only after a 2 bedroom apartment.

George Zarev
Brunswick East

Within 7 days of the auction we had another $75,000, our original reserve price and sold. With Justin’s support, knowledge and advice we achieved the result we wanted at no extra cost.

Wayne & Maria Crabbe

From the outset Justin was clear on what I could expect and provided a simple marketing strategy I was comfortable with. I am very pleased with the result and give him my full recommendation.

Lesley Jackson-Collyer

Thanks for the wonderful job helping to sell my Box Hill and Mitcham units. In both cases I received more than I hoped for. Your patience and cool manner in dealing with the agent and a difficult buyer was the secret to our success.

Leigh Hill
Narre Warren

From start to finish this made what could have been a very stressful process, virtually stress free. Thanks Again.

Stuart & Lou-Ann
Mt Eliza

Justin gave me a price above my expectation and advised we sell privately with just a board and the internet which was different to all agents I had dealt with previously. We got $25,000 more than the asking price in a short time with little expense.

Jekabs A. Zeidars

Being overseas I needed someone I could trust with all aspects of the sale of my home. Justin was patient, courteous, prompt and professional in all aspects of our dealings and helpful in situations I was unfamiliar with.
