Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Buyer Marketing unique?
After over 30 years of first hand industry experience, we have an in-depth knowledge of Melbourne’s property market. We know who the best real estate agents are in your local area, and we’ve invested many years in building strong relationships with each of them.
Which areas of Melbourne do you cover?
Our specialty is the inner eastern suburbs across the municipalities of Port Phillip, Stonnington, Boroondara, Bayside, Glen Eira, Yarra, Hobsons Bay and Melbourne, but we help buyers right across Melbourne.
Who should use Buyer Marketing
Any home buyer or investor who’d like their property purchase to be stress free, to save time, money and to feel confident they have the support of a qualified, independent advisor.
Do you help buyers with all types of property sale, ie. auction, private sale, tender?
Yes we do! If you’re purchasing property in inner-city Melbourne, auction is very common but we will look at every type of sale in the search for your ideal property.
Is Buyer Marketing a Licensed Estate Agent?
Yes. Legally, we must hold a full estate agent’s license to practice as a buyers advocate – but we don’t sell real estate, and we’re not aligned with any agents. We work independently and exclusively to ensure our buyers’ interests are always protected.
What does Buyer Marketing do differently to real estate agents?
Our role is to be your strategic advisor. We have a wealth of knowledge about the market, local agents and property marketing but we use this only to help find, negotiate and secure your ideal property. Our role is to assist you, the Buyer, whereas predominately the role of a real estate agent is to represent the seller.
Does Buyer Marketing offer Vendor Advocacy services?
No. Buyer Marketing is an impartial service exclusively for buyers. We believe those individuals offering both vendor and buyer advocacy services is a conflict of interest and cannot provide the best result for both parties.
Will all Real Estate Agents be receptive towards Buyer Marketing?
Absolutely! Real estate agents understand we can introduce qualified buyers they might not otherwise know about – saving them time and marketing. They also respect our industry expertise and ability to negotiate pragmatically and efficiently.

“Peter’s professionalism in assisting us buying our house was invaluable. As someone who does not like “swimming with the sharks”, I was very happy with the way Peter engaged the Vendor agent and brought the purchase to fruition quickly and painlessly. For us it was money well spent.”
“My experience with Peter was that he was easy to deal with, motivated and excited by the chase! He helped streamline the process and take the stress out of bidding at auction!”
“Peter Fox helped us buy a property in Fitzroy North through a process of “Expressions of Interest”. He was very professional and made the job of purchasing the property so much easier than it would otherwise have been. I believe without Peter’s skills we wouldn’t have been successful in our purchase. I would recommend anybody buying a house to speak to Peter first.”
“It was a pleasure working with Peter Fox from Buyer Marketing. He listened attentively and researched the areas that I wanted to buy my investment home. I gave his some starting research of my own and we went together on a journey of due diligence, where it became very clear to me what my budget could afford and clarified what was not possible. Given the choices available and during negotiations and initial offers he changed my mind on going too far in price, and diverted me quickly to the best offer on hand. Once the decision was made, he told me we had to work quickly. His vast experience was evident. There were now other interested parties and he was right to urge me to move quickly and with confidence. This house was one I actually found first, and I was the first person to see this house. The value I got from Peter was the confidence that Peter and I walked the same path together and did all our research and came to the best decision and moved quickly when we had to secure the house. I would highly recommend Peter if you are looking for a Buyers Advocate, due to his many years of experience and his attention to detail, where other very high profile Buyers Advocates that I spoke to before Peter, first were not listening to my needs, were not as experienced, and had little knowledge of the areas I was interested in, as if these locations were already way too close to the city to be in my price range. Peter just worked all around.”
“I would like to state with all sincerity that Peter acted with honesty and integrity during the whole negotiating process for the purchase of my new home in Richmond hence no need to go to Auction at a very attractive price for myself. His advice and constant updates were informative and reassuring. I felt consulted and on board with all matters pertaining to my purchase. Peter is a charming and personable man. I interviewed other Buyer Advocates and felt Peter is the best in the business. He is an honest man and his integrity and due diligence was obvious to me from the start of engaging his services. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Peter to other purchasers.”
“I want to thank you so much for the concentrated effort that you put into purchasing our new home. We have known and dealt with Peter for over 8 years. Peter has shown us through many properties and has purchased our third property, a prominent blue-stone house in Williamstown. We have always been very happy with Peter’s casually sophisticated negotiating style. Peter has always been a pleasure to deal with, a real gentleman, we look forward to dealing with Peter again whether we buy another property. Peter is our man!”
“Hello Peter, I just wanted to write a note thanking you for your professionalism in negotiating the purchase of our new home in Camberwell. We are obviously wrapped with the actual purchase of the home but we have also been impressed with your honesty, courteous and thorough disposition. We knew the house was going to move fast and to turn around a same day inspection along with all of the necessary documentation of assessments, contracts etc and be able to make a same day purchase super simple was impressive. I look forward to future transactions in expanding my Real Estate Portfolio and will be seeking your services again when I am back in the market.”
“I would love to thank Peter for his prompt attention in helping us find our lovely Victorian Terrace in Richmond. Peter was extremely helpful throughout the process in finding the right property in a very competitive market place. His negotiation skills were outstanding. He in bought our property at the right price to fit our budget.
We will be recommending Peter to our friends trying also to buy a property in the near future.”
