What Our Customers Say

At first, my wife and I were very worried & apprehensive because we NEVER bought our own House in Melbn, especially so, in a Hot & Rising(price) market. Even though I was a practising Lawyer ( for a few decades) overseas, I was not exactly familiar with Melbn’s laws & purchasing procedures. So I googled for a GOOD Buyers’ Advocate in Ferntree Gully area & its surrounds & Wayne Taynton ‘s name popped up. Engaging Wayne was the best choice we made. He completely & immediately took over all the worries & stress from us. Despite our very strict specifications ; eg : No Body Corp, House must Not be lower than the road level etc . Within a few short weeks Jodie( Wayne’s wife & also a Buyers Advocate) found us a perfect Home. Wayne demonstrated integrity, full transparency & super skill throughout the entire buying process & things went very smoothly. He was very approachable & kept us well informed , gave us pertinent advice from time to time & left NO stone unturned. Wayne even took over the bidding (for & on our behalf )@ the Auction & skillfully secured the House at the best possible price, something beyond our expectations. We strongly recommend Wayne to anyone wanting to buy a Property, but lacking the requisite knowledge and / or the time.

Steven and Eileen

Amazing performance! We cannot rate Wayne and Jodie highly enough – they’ve been an absolute pleasure to work with! Possessing an extensive knowledge of the Victorian Real Estate market, Wayne and Jodie took immense care to ensure our buying experience was as seamless and stress-free as possible. They listened to all of our needs and were always there to guide us through every aspect of the process. We found them to be consummate, articulate, professional with a genuine “nothing’s too hard” work ethic. Engaging with Your Property Advocates was the best decision we made! We happily recommend them to anyone wanting an exceptional buying experience. Thanks again Wayne and Jodie – we couldn’t be happier with the service you provided!!!!

Jo and Rohan

We had a great experience with Wayne. Friendly, efficient, helpful at all times – and we got the new home!!! Thank you

Sachin Patel

Wayne’s knowledge of property purchasing and surrounding services, as well as the hands on, personalised support has been beyond expectations. For both my wife and I who were apprehensive in entering into property investment, Wayne was able to offer reassurance and back it up with easy to understand but still comprehensive reports. We were given many suitable options and ultimately chose an off-market property at an amazing price which we never would have known about without Your Property Advocates. Additionally, Wayne’s extensive list of contacts in Conveyancing, Building and Pest inspections and Property management, took the pressure off in having to find and manage the multiple requirements that go along with purchasing property. We can’t recommend Wayne and his team at Your Property Advocates enough to anyone looking for a property but don’t know where to start or don’t have the time.

Matt and Sarah

Wayne goes above and beyond to make sure you get the best! Property, and service!
He guided me through the whole process of finding the best investment property, and dealing with all the important people involved! We worked together through the whole thing, via regular phone calls and video meetings! Would recommend his services again to anyone! 👌

Mark Chantachak

My wife and I engaged Wayne at Your Property Advocates to help us expand our property portfolio recently, and could not have been happier with that decision. Wayne and his team have some seriously amazing insights into markets all around Australia, and tailor made an investment solution that best suited our needs. The team at YPA are friendly, patient, professional and accessible. Nothing is too much and they communicate openly and efficiently. I can’t recommend this business highly enough. Thanks Wayne and team for what has been a life changing experience! We won’t be using anyone else for our property investment needs moving forward!

Joel and Renee

Had a great end-to-end experience with Wayne and would recommend him without hesitation to friends and family. I live in Melbourne but was looking to buy in the Brisbane area, which is why I wanted to hire a buyer’s agent with the right connections. Wayne certainly delivered. In the initial conversation, he did not rush me, but took the time to answer all my questions and fill any knowledge gaps. While looking for a suitable property, he kept me informed about the pros and cons of various prospects, and he did not hesitate to go back to the drawing board if something did not fit the bill. I never had to chase him up, he was always proactive. Once we found a property and the contract was signed, he continued to support me by sharing valuable information regarding any potential pitfalls as well as insurance and property management recommendations. Wayne is clearly passionate about getting you the best possible outcome, not just getting you out the door. All at a very reasonable price. Will definitely be hiring him again for my next investment property purchase.

Martin Schulz

We had an amazing experience with Wayne as our buyer’s advocate!
We are first home buyers who did the thing we weren’t meant to do – we fell in love with a property. We knew it was our dream home BUT the auction was just two weeks away! We had our work cut out for us if we were going to go for the property, and would need some serious help… We found Wayne through a quick Google search. Wayne walked us through everything we would need to do and get organised, came to an open house and helped organise a building report. To top it all off he came to the auction, did some very strategic bidding and managed to successfully secure us the property of our dreams, AND made sure we got the house under budget. We were blown away by his skills and dedication, especially since we reached out to him just two weeks before the auction! Wayne’s knowledge of the local market was impressive, he really understood where we were at and thoughtfully walked us through the whole process – including the emotional rollercoaster! What we loved about Wayne was his accessibility and responsiveness. He was always there to answer our questions and address any concerns we had. His personalised approach made us feel like a top priority, and we appreciated his genuine care. We can’t recommend Wayne enough as a buyer’s advocate. If you’re looking for someone who is professional, skilled and goes the extra mile, Wayne is your guy! Thank you, Wayne, for helping us secure our dream home and making the entire process a breeze!

Sam and Shweta

My partner and I were finding it difficult negotiating a deal with selling agents, so finding Wayne was a real game changer! With the help of Jodie and Jack, we were the successful bidders at our first auction together. The auction was really won with all the work the team did before game day. The deep discussions with the agents, the B&P inspections and the market analysis. We felt very confident in our decision with the team at Your Property Advocates guiding us. We have recommended them to friends and family, and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to break into the difficult property market!

Josh D

Excellent engagement from beginning to end. Wayne is very knowledgeable of the industry – from understanding estate agent processes and psychology, to being incredibly accurate in terms of property assessment and valuing. Wayne is extremely personable and his support through the process of purchasing my home was invaluable to me. His network of contacts – from brokers to conveyancers is more than handy, and he’s just an all round lovely guy. Wayne, you’re a treasure. Thanks a million

India

We recently had the pleasure of working with Wayne and Jodie from Your Property Advocates who completely exceeded all of our expectations. Being first time home buyers we went into this process completely inexperienced and nervous. From our first phone call with Wayne we knew we’d made the right decision in choosing Your Property Advocates. We felt confident and empowered knowing that we had them advocating on our behalf. From the moment we started working together, Wayne and Jodie were incredibly responsive and always available to answer all of our questions. They took the time to understand our needs and preferences, and they truly had our best interests at heart throughout the entire process. They helped us navigate the complex world of real estate in a way that we couldn’t have done on our own. They provided invaluable guidance and support, and we never felt pressured or rushed into making any decisions. What really stood out to us was the their ability to negotiate. They were an absolute pro at handling negotiations and helped us secure an amazing property in a suburb we thought would be impossible for a first time homebuyers budget. We are still in shock from this!! I cannot recommend Wayne and Jodie highly enough. If you are looking for a buyers advocate who truly cares about their clients, and who will work tirelessly to help you find the perfect home, then Your Property Advocates is for you. Thank you again Wayne and Jodie.

Parminder and Michaella

Wayne and Jodie made the whole process of selling our house and buying our new home seamless and  so so easy. They had our back the whole way through, so much knowledge and fantastic advice. I would encourage anyone thinking of buying or selling to give Wayne a call, he will sort you out.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

Chantelle and Jeremy

My husband and I got in touch with Wayne after several months of frustrating house hunting. His advice was straight to the point and we felt completely confident in the recommendations that he made. As it turns out, we went with an investment purchase instead of primary residence and we couldn’t be happier. He was available at any time to answer the myriad of questions we had and felt he navigated each and every step with fantastic professionalism. We will be using his services again and look forward to the same streamlined success.

Kerry Fraser

As first time property investors we new we needed support and guidance in an area we’ve never ventured into before. Wayne from Your Property Advocates was thorough, thoughtful and a true professional throughout the entire process. Soon after we engaged Wayne’s services he sourced a great property (super quickly) and patiently walked us through every step of the way. He answered every question, no matter how silly it may have been and really took his time to ensure we understood exactly what we were doing every step of the way. We would happily recommend Your Property Advocates to anyone buying a home, an investment property or increasing their property portfolio. Wayne is a good man with a kind heart and an absolute unwavering desire to give the best possible experience to his customers. We’re fortunate to have him on this journey with us and super excited for what’s to come.

Helen & Raimond

We had a fantastic experience buying our new home at auction with Your Property Advocates. Wayne provided great advice and was with us every step of the way. He puts his clients first and cares about their success and getting a great result. We felt at ease through the entire process and it took away all the worry and uncertainty. We highly recommend Wayne and the team at Your Property Advocates. We wouldn’t hesitate to use their services again.

Aaron & Lauren

My wife and I chose Wayne and Jack from Your Property Advocates to buy our first home this year, and we couldn’t be more happy. Right from the start they were friendly, cheerful and full of good advice. We’re obviously completely new to all the nuances of buying a property and they were always on hand to sort out issues or answer questions – whether that was a title discrepancy, a recommendation for a building and pest inspector or what factors go into a property’s value/price. Even now, between getting a signed contract of sale and settlement, they’re still available for advice and on hand to organise things like the final inspection. We also found them to be fierce negotiators, and for the property we ended up buying we were fairly sure without them we would have either missed out completely or overpaid. They were able to dedicate much more time to calling agents, doing research and visiting properties than we would have been able to ourselves. They also had a very good idea what each property was worth and knew what information to use in negotiations to get a good deal. Our purchase was also perhaps not the easiest – we had a tight brief and left for the USA for a month in the middle of the hunt – but through all that Jack and Wayne’s patience and enthusiasm never wavered a bit. At the start of our buying process we were on the fence about buyers advocates in general but in hindsight couldn’t had the success we had without Your Property Advocates and we’d recommend them to anyone.

Matt & Caitlin

Wayne has been so wonderful helping me along my investment journey, I cannot thank him enough. He is so lovely, knowledgeable and encouraging. He made everything so easy for me, looking after every aspect of the purchase. I can’t wait to buy another property with him and have recommended him to friends.

Erin

Your property advocates’ came highly recommended to us, and in all honesty given we are not new to the housing market, we were a bit skeptical at first. It turns out our experience buying in Europe did not at all prepare us for the complexities of buying in Australia and Wayne truly was a god send.
I think we might have been tricky customers as we had just moved to the country and needed a house immediately… but we also had a list of criteria, and were not going to settle just anywhere.
Wayne’s enthusiasm and experience in this market was vital to our success and his fantastic network of related businesses really made the whole process easy. He kept on top of the process the whole way, kept us up-to-date with any progress being made and completely understood our needs – never once did we feel lost or feel the need to follow up.
Thanks to Wayne we just landed the perfect house that matches every single item on our wish list.
Best of all, we are absolutely certain Wayne saved us a heck of a lot of money! In fact, I can think of three separate instances Wayne stopped us from throwing away enough money to pay for ‘Your property advocates’ services MULTIPLE times over.
Even though we are now much more acquainted with the market, I would go back to Wayne for our next property. It was easily the best money we spent.

Aimee & Yves

We couldn’t recommend Wayne & Jack highly enough. From our first meeting they were professional but also personable. Throughout the process of searching for our new house they left no stone unturned. Their communication was faultless consisting of regular phone calls, zoom meetings & emails. It took the stress off us & we felt that every available suitable property had been scrutinised by them but still letting us make the final decision. It also saved us so much time especially on the weekends. Their knowledge of the property market & how it operates is second to none with so many contacts within the industry.

Rob & Marg

Zac and I would like to give a massive shout out to our amazing buyers advocate, Wayne from Your Property Advocates. Wayne was a massive reason why I didn’t lose my mind through this process. With Zac being away, I honestly don’t know what I would have done without Wayne!! He not only educated me but he supported me through every part. Wayne not only supported us to find a house and get a great deal, he also went above and beyond. Through every tear, heart break, etc., Wayne was holding our hands through it all.

This process has been such a roller coaster. I would highly recommend for any buyer to get Wayne to help you! You will not regret it one bit. Thank you so much Wayne! We are beyond grateful for having you a part of our first purchase and we can’t wait to see you again in a few years! Your Property Advocates thank you so much and we are forever grateful.

Zac & Kelly

While I had always planned on using a buyer’s advocate, I spent many months conducting my own research, attending endless inspections and began feeling disillusioned about buying my first property. With ‘eligible’ properties in my price range being few and far between and stretching further outside of my budget and preferred location, I didn’t think that using an advocate would have yielded much success with the market being as it was, so I continued the daunting foray into the property market solo. Well, after a recommendation and engaging with Wayne for only 2 weeks, I am a new home owner! The previous months were well worth it to help me realise what was realistic so it ended up being a very easy process (with Wayne’s assistance of course!). Wayne suggested a property which hadn’t crossed my path and he was right that it was well worth a look. He knew what I was looking for and more importantly, dismissed properties which were not realistic options for me. His experience in the real estate industry was extremely helpful in making what ended up being a very easy decision. Having a second, professional opinion helped enormously.

I am looking forward to settling in to my new home. It has been a relief finding a property in a great location that ticked all of my boxes. It is exactly what I was looking for. Even though the sale has been completed, Wayne is still at hand for further questions and assistance. I highly recommend Your Property Advocates.

Catherine Pound

Talk about exceptional service! And going above and beyond? Well we received both and then some!! We had been searching for our first family home for over 2 years, only to be met with knock back after knock back from the flood of buyers in the current market. We had a tight budget so engaging a buyer’s advocate was a “tell ‘em he’s dreamin” situation. Then we met Jack and his dad, Wayne. They tailored a very affordable packaged (the “you find a house, we do the rest” package) which we were stoked with.

On the day of our auction Wayne was so calm and supportive, and was confident that this would be our day. He wasn’t wrong. His bidding strategy and execution was something out of movie where the cool, calm and collected superhero let’s you know that everything will be ok with just a simple nod. “Sold!”, shouted the auctioneer, holy moly our property-Yoda won us our first home! Excuse me I have something in my eyes.

This family-run business (literally a dad, mum and son team) went above an beyond for us and guided us through everystep of the way: from real estate liaison, to negotiations, bidding on the day and post purchase advice. We were kept updated (almost every day) leading up to auction day on all conversations on our behalf. Wayne also provided us with detailed insights of the market and most importantly, lifted our spirits with supportive pep-talks.  On behalf of my partner and our dog, we give the Tayntons at Your Property Advocates 5 stars, 10 out of 10, A++ for the phenomenal service they provided us.

Kim and Pae

Jack and Wayne are worth their weight in gold. As first home buyers, we were anxious and deterred by the rapidly changing market and wondering how we would ever be able to get a foot in the door. We were initially hesitant about engaging a buyer’s advocate, but from the very first meeting we knew Jack and Wayne were the right fit for us. They made having an advocate seem so much more accessible than we’d thought. What stood out to us was their passion for the industry – it was contagious and ultimately allowed us to have not only a successful experience, but a fun one.  Throughout the whole process Jack and Wayne kept us informed around the market in general and our own search. We never had to wonder what the next step was as their communication was so strong. They treated every question as a good question, and were patient and generous with their time as they guided us along.  With them taking the lead, we were able to secure an incredible first home at an amazing price, surpassing all our expectations. Not once did we feel stressed by the process, and we always felt like a team. Their local knowledge is second to none and you can completely trust them to be transparent about your options – something that’s absolutely critical when making such a huge decision.  We could not recommend Your Property Advocates more highly, and can’t wait to work with them again!

Tyson and Brianna

We are very pleased to have met Wayne and Jack who walked us through our first steps into property investment. They made the whole process very simple and took us through the suburbs worth investing currently. They were honest, upfront and very professional and the values they uphold is what makes working with them so stress-free and easy. We were able to get things sorted very quickly, and even after the purchase of our property, Wayne has been only a phone call away for advice or any questions we had regarding property management or even to clarify if we were doing things right.

We would definitely recommend them if you are looking for a company with family values and clear, honest communication. They are not afraid of hard work and are willing to listen and flexible enough to change plans if required. With the amount of experience Wayne has in the property industry, you will be in good hands; and he isn’t hesitant in steering you in the right direction based on what your requirements are.

Finy and Abhi

To put it simply, we would not have bought the house we now call ‘our home’ without the help of Wayne and Jack. From the first moment we met them both, we knew they would deliver, such is their professionalism, attention to detail and genuine care for their client. They were patient with us as our brief developed and kept us informed on changes in the market. However, they kindly steered us back on track if our brief wasn’t aligned with reality. Although Wayne and Jack would be the perfect solution for investors and those already ‘in the market’, what seems to set them apart is their ability to make first-home-buying an exciting, stress-free and rewarding experience. Through their wisdom and rapport with local agents, we managed to purchase our house at a sensational price, off-market, prior to auction and with a settlement time frame that suited us. From my limited experience, this is almost unheard of. There was never a silly question for Wayne and Jack and they answered every call, text and email. I could not fault the services of ‘Your Property Advocates’. Highly recommended!”

Andrew and Rachael
Client

I used Wayne and Jack to help me purchase my first investment property. The wealth of knowledge they had available was nothing short of amazing. From the initial consultation you could hear the passion and motivation to help me start my property portfolio and that continued on throughout the entirety of the process as they worked day and night to deliver me the best property options available. Their hard work, dedication and guidance to help me find the right property took a lot of the pressure off me as a first home buyer. It was an absolute pleasure to work with them and I look forward to doing business with them again in the near future.

Joshua
Client

I wish I’d found Wayne five years earlier! His knowledge and astute advice helped my wife and I secure two investment properties in a short period of time. Wayne’s personable and professional approach is a rare combination in this modern world of instant expertise.

Andrew
Client

I shared with Wayne many years ago my aspirations of being a property investor, and the guidance he gave me changed my life forever. The process from deposit, who to talk to regarding finance options, cashflow analysis and so on, taught me the fundamentals. From there, I started with one investment property, then built a portfolio, then on to property development. Thanks to that early guidance, I have the work, life, balance most dream of.

Jack
Client

I have always had great support from Wayne whenever I was looking into a property. His knowledge of all things real estate filled me with confidence and really helped buying a new property a breeze. In recent times Wayne assisted me in researching for our forever home. He actually pointed me in a different direction than what I was initially thinking, but now a few years on I couldn’t be happier, the value has gone up more than I can believe and the whole family absolutely love the area. I have no hesitation in recommending Wayne if you are looking to invest in property or buy a new home.
