After enjoying 10 successful years at selling Real Estate, Julie decided to “level the playing field” for Buyers. Shocked to find the market full of commission based Advocates (a direct conflict of interest for the Buyers), Julie set out to create Australia’s first low flat fee Buyers Advocacy service.
Julie and her Team all work from a home base keeping overheads low and passing that savings onto the Buyers. Leading from the front Julie creates a culture of integrity and honesty. She is absolutely passionate about saving Buyers time, heartache and money.
Julie is also the Founding Director of Melbourne Vendor Advocates, Property Home Base. Property Home Base provide a vendor advocacy services for persons looking to sell a house or property.
When Julie is not hard at work running Buyers Home Base or helping you find your ideal property, you will find her travelling with her husband to visit her children and grandchildren, playing with their dog Jazzy, or enjoying good food, wine and music with friends.
