We offer support and guidance when selling your property, to minimise stress and maximise results. The role of a vendor advocate is to act as a liaison between the property seller and the selling agent. We consult with you to support and guide you during the sales process. From recommending the best method of sale for your circumstances, to selling property agent selection and campaign support.
We have relationships with over 400 selling agents around Melbourne, so we can recommend the best of the best to work with, to get you the best outcome possible .
Full Service Package
A Vendor Advocate will find the seller an appropriate selling property agent, explain the commission process to the seller and then negotiate the commission on behalf of the seller with the recommended selling agent. We will also do research to determine the best method for selling the property - either private sale or at auction.
Best of all, vendor advocacy is free. We simply share in the commission charged by the selling agent – hiring us will not cost you an extra cent!
We have a talent bank of service providers that we can make available to our clients if they require support in the areas of conveyancing, building and pest inspections, mortgage broking, depreciation schedules, property management and insurance. We do not accept referral fees for introductions to third parties and only request that our referral partners provide exceptional service to our clients.
Our success stories
Jason and Clara were in need of help selling their family home, to be able to change suburbs, and also buy an investment property to build their portfolio. After we indentified the best agents and assessed their proposals, Jason and Clara selected their agent. Working with them and with support from the team at Property Mavens, they achieved above their dream price on the day of auction.

Thank you for your support and guidance throughout the sales process of our apartment in Hawthorn.
Your recommended selling agent and suggestion to update and refresh the property enabled us to exceed our price expectations on the day of auction.
You were prompt and easy to deal with and your thorough and accurate advice made the whole sales process really easy for us.
We appreciate your clear communication and professional guidance - it made the entire process effortless.
We wouldn't hesitate in engaging your services to sell our property in the future and also look to engaging your services when it comes to buying our next investment property.

Working with Miriam was brilliant. I barely had to lift a finger, and she expedited a fantastic sales process that achieved a record price for my property.
Before appointing Miriam, I had just assumed I would find a couple of local agents and go through the normal, painful, guesswork experience.
By working with Miriam, it cost me nothing to find an amazing, energetic and skilful agent, and ended up with a far, far higher sale price than I ever expected. Miriam drives everyone in the process to do their part professionally and quickly; with great dividends.
If you're selling a property, you'd be crazy not to work with Miriam.
