Show Notes

Friends, today we’ll meet Elaine Davies. Elaine Davies is a very successful buyer’s agent. She has bought over 200 properties and has helped countless clients in her 15 years of experience in this field. She’s also the founder of New Road Property and is the author of the book “Mind, Body, Sold!: Your Holistic Guide to Buying Property Like a Pro”.

In this episode, Elaine tells us the big difference between a real estate agent and a buyer’s agent. A buyer’s agent is like your personal shopper when it comes to property buying, as you can expect the majority of the work to be done for you. From choosing which property, securing inspection reports, negotiating with the seller, winning the auction or finalising a private treaty, and signing off the contract- you can say that a buyer’s agent will be there to make property buying seamless, strategic, and less stressful. And if you are a first home buyer, a buyer’s agent like Elaine will be a huge help as you thread through your very first home buying experience.

Elaine also shared with us a glimpse of what’s in her book, “Mind, Body, Sold!: Your Holistic Guide to Buying Property Like a Pro”, which is by using your head, heart, and your smarts! I note that it has a section that talks about the mindset needed when purchasing, which is very important for first home buyers to have. If you are interested in getting your own copy of Elaine’s book, you can check Amazon.

And as mentioned earlier, Elaine is the founder of the New Road Property, which has this vast folio of properties bought all around Sydney. Visit their website to know more about their services and how they can help. Their contact details are also listed below.
