LICENSED ESTATE AGENT
My name is Cameron Reid, business owner of MACBAR Buyers Agent.
I commenced my journey in purchasing property at the age of 19, when I bought my first property in Geelong, Victoria. After purchasing this property, I discovered that I had a genuine interest in property and learning about property investing and purchasing. Within 6 months, I purchased my next property in QLD. I well and truly felt that I had a passion for property and purchased another 4 investment properties within an 8-year period. Since this time, I have also designed and built a number of properties with independent builders, which has also strengthened my knowledge about property within the building industry.
In 2017, my wife and I were attempting to sell our family home. We engaged a real estate agent from a well-known agency to market and sell our property. Our understanding at this time was that he would deliver on his promise of genuine commitment and success of sales within the area. After 3 months of marketing our property, and of what I can only describe as a terrible experience with this particular agent, who we felt did not have our best interests in mind.
Having no real experience in selling property ourselves, we decided to go it alone and list the property on a private real estate portal. Within the first month of the property being listed on the market (at our original asking price), we had 3 interested parties negotiating with us directly. We were able to successfully sell the property at the original asking price to a young family, who still own the property and continue to remain in contact with us.
