8/10 " We selected Property Mavens for industry knowledge, and no nonsense, women entrepreneur. The best part of engaging Property Mavens was thatMiriam took us through the process of figuring out what we would likely get for the low end of our budget, the kind of work that would be needed on such a property and helped us refine what we really wanted. She presented options, giving us reality checks and pushed us to make decisions in a timely fashion. Miriam was not uncomfortable giving the hard facts. In the end, she got us a great deal, that was the best part.
For newbies like us that didn't know the Melbourne market or the process really well, Miriam took us through the process of figuring out what we would likely get for the low end of our budget by showing us a few properties at that end of the spectrum and the kind of work that would be needed on such a property and helped us refine what we really wanted. All through the process, she presented options, giving us reality checks where needed and pushed us to make decisions in a timely fashion. Miriam was not uncomfortable giving the hard and sometimes unpleasant facts.
Miriam was also great at ruling out properties that weren't going to be good buys and didn't push us too much when we were uncomfortable with a property that ticked all the boxes. In the end, she got us a great deal on an off-market property and have hence bought our home! Its made a difference in our lives because we've bought our first house in Australia. We learned a lot about the Melbourne property market, what to look for in a property and connections with good people for conveyancing, mortgage, surveyor & design and renovations".
