From our first virtual meeting with Rodney, to my visit to Cairns to meet Tajana and then embarking on our quest to find our perfect home, we have been fully supported every step of the way.Nothing has been too much trouble, bothTajana & Rodney have given us their time, energy, guidance and local knowledge. We couldn’t have done this without their help and are so excited to have found our new home, all thanks to FNQ Buyers Agents.YolandaYolanda ★★★★★ Fantastic service from the team.Manoj SahareManoj Sahare ★★★★★ I had the pleasure of working with Rodney and the experience was nothing short of exceptional.Rodney demonstrated an in-depth knowledge of the local real estate market and a keen understanding of our specific needs. He took the time to listen to our preferences and tirelessly worked to find properties that aligned perfectly with what we were looking for.Communication was a standout aspect of working with Rodney and his team. The Team kept us informed at every step of the process, promptly answering our questions and addressing any concerns. We felt supported and guided throughout the entire journey. Highly Recommended!!!Raja MarwahRaja Marwah ★★★★★ I cannot speak highly enough of Rodney and his team for the exceptional service they provided as my buyer's agent in Australia. From the very beginning, their professionalism stood out, and it was clear that they possessed an in-depth understanding of the suburban profiles in the region I was interested in. This was crucial for me, as I had no prior experience using a buyer agent.Given that I was overseas and seeking an investment property, I needed someone who could be proactive and prompt in their follow-ups. Rodney and his team, especially Tajana, demonstrated precisely that. Tajana, in particular, is a true rockstar in the field. She took the time to listen to my needs, presented me with viable listings, visited properties on my behalf, and even captured videos when live calls weren't possible.Tajana went above and beyond by engaging in one-on-one conversations with every property agent, ensuring that my interests were well-represented. She strategically placed bids, provided advice on competitive pricing, and consulted with me before making any decisions. Her approach was not only professional but also tactful, making it clear that I was interested in the property without overpaying.The pinnacle of their service was when Tajana uncovered an off-market property during a visit to another listed property. Her proactive communication with the selling agent revealed the possibility of a tenanted property about to hit the market. With her swift action and support, we secured an incredible deal, significantly below the market value.Since the purchase, I've witnessed numerous properties in the same suburb listed for considerably higher prices, reinforcing the fact that it wasn't just luck but Tajana's exceptional negotiation skills and public dealing that secured me a property that perfectly fits my needs.I wholeheartedly recommend Rodney and his team to anyone seeking a buyer's agent in Australia. Their commitment to their clients' interests and unwavering support in achieving personal and investment goals make them stand out as one of the best in the industry. I am already planning to engage with them again in the future, confident that they will continue to deliver outstanding results.Praneel BhelaPraneel Bhela ★★★★★ We worked with FNQ Buyers Agent as solicitors assisting their clients purchase a property in Cairns. We were very impressed by their professionalism, knowledge and dedication. They simplified the process for their Buyers as they arranged inspections and negotiated with the sellers. I would highly recommend FNQ Buyers Agent to anyone looking for a reliable and experienced buyers agent in Far North Queensland.Patricia LatuPatricia Latu ★★★★★ We were very impressed with the open lines of communication maintained throughout the process, responsiveness to our questions, explanation of next steps and prompt follow-ups. A special thank you to Tajana and Rodney.Kevin HardingKevin Harding ★★★★★ Our first experience using a Buyers Agent. FNQ Buyers Agent found a range of properties both on and off market that met our criteria that helped us to hone in on what were our key priorities for purchase and focused our decision on to the one apartment complex that met our requirements and where we have purchased an apartment. Tajana provided walk through videos to allow us to remotely view the apartments she identified and inspected. She highlighted the condition of the fixtures and furnishings and weighed up the pros and cons of each against our criteria. This limited the need to visit in person for inspections until we were sure the property had definite potential for a purchase decision. FNQ Buyers Agent certainly met our needs and delivered a purchase that we are happy with in 6-8 weeks at a reasonable negotiated purchase price.Adam SaittaAdam Saitta ★★★★★ Great business to do business with - They're really buyer focused and work tirelessly to get the best result for their clients. If you're considering engaging a buyers agent in FNQ, then consider no more! Give Rod & the team a call.Ed CEd C ★★★★★ I would not hesitate to recommend FNQ Buyers Agent services. Very happy with the services recieved. Tajana was extremely thorough in helping me find my new home.

Being inexperienced with buying a house, not knowing what to look for and how the whole process worked, it was great with Rodney, Tajana and the team's help (especially with the viewings and the negotiations).

Buying a home in the challenging Cairns market was no small feat, but these two made it feel like a breeze!From the very start, Rodney and Tajana were there for me - and I mean really there. They took calls and texts on public holidays, late evenings, you name it. And it wasn't just about answering queries, they actively provided invaluable advice that made my home search a lot more manageable and less overwhelming.I truly admired their honest and transparent approach. They had this knack of spotting potential issues that I'd likely have missed - like flood risks or other snags. They'd even tell me straight-up if they thought I was wrong for a property. This kind of straight-talking was like a compass in the wild sea of the Cairns market.Tajana, with her sharp eye for detail, was my absolute hero during property inspections. She pointed out the good, the bad, and the in-between - things that completely slipped past my radar. Her dedication made me feel that I had a true partner in this adventure, someone who was as invested in the outcome as I was.And then there's Rodney - besides his great advice, he introduced me to a mortgage broker who was an absolute gem! I was bowled over by how the FNQ team was so networked and knowledgeable about all aspects of home buying.Navigating the Cairns market with FNQ Buyers Agent was more than just a service - it was an experience. Their amazing blend of professionalism, dedication, and genuine care made this journey a memorable one for me. If you're looking to buy in Cairns, I can't recommend Rodney and Tajana enough.Thanks to FNQ Buyers Agent, I'm now over the moon in my new home. Hats off to Rodney and Tajana - you guys are rock stars!Caroline HollandCaroline Holland ★★★★★ Rod and his team have entrusted me to help a many FNQ's Buyers Agents clients find cost effective quality home insurance for their new properties.

What is a buyers agent?

Buyer’s agents work directly with property buyers to find them the most suitable property.

Also known as a buyer’s advocate, we are here to help make the entire process as smooth as possible; working with local real estate agents to find you the perfect family home or investment property and maximise your capital growth.

People often choose to use a professional buyers agent to support them throughout the purchase process if they are time poor or unfamiliar with the real estate and property market in the area they want to buy in (for example the Brisbane property market). They might also choose to work with a buyers advocate if they want to find an off market property, as buyer’s agents.

Buyers agents can be either exclusive agents working only with commercial property or home buyers and property investors, or a dual buying and selling agents; representing both the parties in a property purchase. We believe that the latter could be cause for concern regarding conflict of interest, which is why using a buyer’s agent like FNQ Buyers Agents will only ever represent the buyer.

We look forward to planning your next purchase!

What Makes a Good Buyers Agent and How To Find The Right One For You

If you’re thinking about purchasing real estate, you might want to consider using a buyer’s agent and take advantage of their knowledge and independent advice.

We recommend taking the time to research and chat with a few in the area you want to buy in to find the right buyer’s agent for you.

What to Look For in Your Buyers Agent

“But what should I look for?” you might be ask. below is a great list of things to think of when you are looking for a buyers agent.

Many people think that the role of a buyer’s agent is simply to show properties and help negotiate the purchase price.

However, an experienced buyers agent also knows how to listen to their clients and understand their needs. Only by taking the time to learn about their clients’ wants and needs can a buyer’s agent hope to find the right property.

In addition, a good listener will be able to pick up on subtle cues that their client may not even be aware of. For instance, a client might mention in passing that they would like a home with a view of the mountains. While this may not seem like an important piece of information, a good listener will know that it is something that is important to their client and will make sure to keep an eye out for properties that match this criteria.

At FNQ Buyers Agent we know that finding a buyer’s agent who is a good listener can make all the difference in helping you find your dream family home or next investment property.

Real estate transactions and buying property is complex and often stressful, so it is important that you find an agent who is knowledgeable about the market and experienced in navigating the process.

A good buyers agent will be able to provide you with a list of properties that match your criteria. This could include the perfect off market property or a property development opportunity with nuances private treaty negotiations.

A good agent will be able to provide insights into current trends, offer advice on pricing and negotiation strategies, and help you avoid potential pitfalls. They will identify possible red flags/unsuitable properties and be able to spot a sweet deal a mile away.

Perhaps most importantly, a good agent will be your buyers advocate throughout the process, working to ensure that you get the best possible outcome. With so much at stake, it is essential that you find an agent who can provide the expertise and guidance you need to navigate the real estate market successfully. Just like the team at FNQ Buyers Agent.

Any experienced buyer’s agent will have a solid portfolio of happy clients and a great reputation in the industry. You want someone who is known for being honest and professional, and who has your best interests at heart.

A buyer’s agent with a strong portfolio has a proven track record of being able to find and negotiate the best possible deals on behalf of their clients. They will also have a good understanding of the local market, which is essential in getting the most bang for your buck.

Furthermore, a buyer’s agent with a great reputation will be well-connected within the industry, because it’s not what you know, it’s who you know, which means they will know about properties that are not yet on the market.

If you’re looking to buy a property, it is essential that you find an agent who ticks all of these boxes. Otherwise, you could end up overpaying or missing out on your dream home.

When you’re ready to buy a home, it’s important you to interview several buyers agents before making a decision. After all, this is someone who will be representing you in one of the biggest transactions of your life.

You need to make sure that you find someone you can trust and who has your best interests at heart. Here are a few questions to ask when interviewing buyers agents:

  • How long have you been working as a buyer’s agent?
  • How many property buyers have you helped with home purchases have you assisted with?
  • What do you think is the most important factor to consider when choosing a home or investment property?
  • What areas do you specialize in?
  • Do you have any experience with (insert type of home you’re interested in)?
  • Can you provide me with references from past clients?
  • How do you communicate with clients?
  • Did you attend the Real Estate Institute?
  • Do you offer a fixed fee?
  • What is your process for finding homes that meet my criteria?
  • Do you know the local real estate agent/agents?
  • Can you help with property management?

Asking these questions will help you get a better understanding of each agent’s qualifications and experience. It will also give you insight into their communication style and how they work.

With this information, you can make an informed decision about which agent is best suited to help you purchase your dream home.

Why Hire A Local Buyers Agent?

 

There are lots of great buyers agents around the country, but do they really know the area where you want to purchase in?

We don’t pretend to truly know areas such as the Brisbane real estate market, we believe to know the Brisbane market/Brisbane property market you should be on the ground and know the local community, streets/suburbs, agents, and be in a position to monitor the market in real-time not months later in the news headlines.

Why Local Knowledge is Important

Local buyers agents are invaluable because of their local expertise.

They will have an intimate and in-depth knowledge of the local real estate market. They will know which suburbs are rising in popularity and which ones are on the decline. They will be able to advise you on what properties are likely to appreciate in value, making them ideal investment properties with maximum rental yield. Not to mention the unique quirks of the local market like flood zones, weather conditions, good streets verses bad streets and more.

A local buyers agent will also be able to give you a reliable guide on what is a reasonable property purchase price based on not just the current property market statistics, but also local understanding of the market’s ebbs and flows. You can expect them to have not only have a solid grasp on recent sales data for both private home buyers and commercial real estate sales but inside knowledge of what’s happening in the local community.

The team at FNQ Buyers Agent has over 10 years of experience in the Cairns property market and their local knowledge is second to none!

Experience

 

A good local buyers agent will also have an intimate knowledge of the property buying process and the unique features of their local area.

As well as auction bidding, mortgage brokers, and property managers, a local buyers agent will also have experience with other local sales agents, know what’s happening in the community and what properties might be coming to market soon to be able to grab an ‘off-market’ opportunity. With this in-depth knowledge, they will be able to typically get a great price and get you the best possible deal on your new home or investment.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Buyers Agents To Buy Real Estate?

What does this all mean for you? What will you get out of it? Hiring a buyers agent means that you will:

One of the biggest benefits is that you will have someone who is solely focused on your best interests.

The right buyers agent is not working for the seller, they are working for you. This means that they will be looking out for your best interests and will try to get you the best deal possible.

Another benefit is that a buyers agent can save you a lot of time.

They will do all the legwork involved in finding a property, such as searching listings, scheduling viewings, and negotiating with sellers. This can be a huge time saver, especially if you’re working with a tight timeline.

Lastly, a buyers agent can also help you save money.

They will have extensive knowledge of the Brisbane market and can help you get a fair price for the property you’re interested in. They can also help you find any hidden costs or potential problems that you might not be aware of

So if you are thinking about buying real estate in or around Cairns, we would highly recommend using a local buyers agent. They will save you time, money, and provide you with an expert opinion on the best properties to invest in.
