We met Andrew many years ago when he was working as a real estate agent and he had a presence about him that was very welcoming and calm. Knowing that he had branched out into a property advocacy service, he instantly came to mind when selling our investment property recently. We didn't have the time and we didn't want the hassle of doing all the ground work. Having Andrew made it a very easy and stress-free process from the beginning to the end. He handled everything from finding an agent to offering insider tips to get the best outcome for us. We sold in 9days. Andrew was always happy to answer any questions and was very prompt on getting back to us.I would highly recommend Andrew for his knowledge in the industry, honesty and professionalism. Andrew you have made the process of selling a very positive one and we thank you again.

After months and months of searching for our first home, endless weekends of inspections and auctions going WAY over the estimated price range, we finally engaged Andrew. It was the best decision we made and we actually began to enjoy the process of purchasing our first home again! Within one month we found and bought the perfect home in what felt like a really impossible market. Andrew shared with us a wealth of advice and organised everything for us. We wouldn't buy a house in the future without him. Thanks Andrew!

My wife and I have worked with Andrew Date (industry Insiders) for over 12 months now. he has helped us complete the sale of an underperforming investment property in a low market and has been instrumental in achieving a tremendous (and way above expectation) sale price for our family home at auction. we now look forward to working with him as we find a new, downsized home. we cannot speak highly enough of Andrew’s professionalism, knowledge of the industry and clarity of expert advice. his recommendation re the timing of our auction was critical in our achieving such a wonderful result. We have never felt that any question is too simple to ask and he has never pressured us in any to make speedy or rushed decisions. quite simply, we can’t imagine having gone through what is such a difficult process as selling investment property or private home without his outstanding help and guidance. Most highly recommended.

I can certainly see why Andrew's client see value in him! Andrew Date employed myself (Barry Plant) to represent the sale of his vendors investment property. Andrew's expertise in relation to preparing the home for sale and sales method were adopted and resulted in achieving a fantastic outcome for his clients. The property sold within 9 days and multiple offers presented. I have no hesitation in recommending his services and look forward to doing business in the future!

I couldn't be happier with the service and the outcome that Andrew provided to secure my new investment property. Andrew is an absolute pleasure to communicate with, no matter the time or means. I am based overseas for the majority of the year so I relied heavily on Andrew's knowledge and experience which proved to go above and beyond my expectations. I can't thank him enough and look forward to working with him and his team again.

Andrew Date from Buyer Agents Melbourne recently assisted us with the sale of our Unit in Pascoe Vale. His initial estimate of the value of our property was spot on and with the enhancements he suggested we sold for just over that in a slowing market. Andrew was always very responsive to any requests via email or phone and we found his support to be invaluable in giving us the confidence to stick to our plan during times in the sale when we may have agreed to sell for less. We thoroughly recommend his services.

Andrew provided my wife and myself with educated advice, guidance and insight from our first meeting through to the successful sale of our home. Andrews knowledge and experience kept us focused and goal driven which resulted in multiple offers and accepted sale over asking in under two weeks. We could not have achieved this without his support and expertise. Thanks Industry Insider, two very happy people!

I could not recommend Andrew and his team highly enough. Purchasing my first home through Industry Insider has made me realise just how essential it is to have an Advocate such as their calibre on your team. I genuinely believe we have saved tens of thousands of dollars by engaging Andrew and his team at Industry Insider. Andrew was available at all hours of the day and no task or question was ever too much. I will be recommending Industry Insider to all of my friends and family. Never have I written a more deserving 5 star review.

We approached Andrew after some great feedback from some friends on his services with purchasing their first property. He was was cool, calm and collected. Super easy to get along with and knew his stuff! He helped us understand the process whilst not feeling overwhelmed. We learnt a LOT about property and all the little tricks to it. Thanks Andrew for helping us find our DREAM HOME and also securing it at a very full on auction! We will forever have fond memories.

My husband and I used Andrew for the recent sale of our property and purchase of our new forever home. The vendor advocacy service was great as we were given advice that was real, achievable and not overinflated especially in these uncertain times in the property market. Andrew gave us guidance in how to present our home to make it as saleable as possible. That helped us to achieve a sale in 3 weeks when other properties around us were on the shelf for 8+ weeks.The next step was to find a new home, I have never been so stressed! Andrew was always there with great advice, communication, understanding and was really thorough. Andrew’s calm and educated approach was something that calmed my stress and once we went ahead with negotiations I was certain the house would be ours, and it was! The level of communication that Andrew provided during the entire process was something that really impressed me and gave me the utmost confidence in his service and advice.We have also used his recommendations for a conveyancer and broker who have both been impressive.Thank you again Andrew for helping us so much! We got our dream home without the nightmare!!

We could not be happier with the assistance that Andrew from Industry Insider provided with the sale of our property. The service provided as a selling advisor was paramount with us achieving a selling price above our expectations in a softening market. We would have no reservations in recommending Industry Insider to take the stress way from selling a home and achieving an outstanding result.

Andrew was incredible in both the results he got and the professionalism he showed. We engaged Andrew because we have a 3 young children with another one on the way. He took on the stress of selling 2 houses and took the emotion out of buying our future family home. Andrew's knowledge of the Mornington Peninsula is phenomenal and leg work he did for us was we are forever grateful, I could not recommend him highly enough. Good luck in the future.

We couldn’t fault Andrew’s service, having an advocate on our side made buying our upgraded family home much less stressful. Andrew took the emotional side of buying away which saved us thousands! Andrew’s guidance and advice throughout selling two homes and buying one home was so valuable and kept us focused during the process. Andrew is worth every cent as he saved us valuable time and money. Thanks again Industry Insider.

Andrew helped me lock down my favourite property by winning the auction at a significantly low price. During the last open inspection, a lot of people showed interest in the property and many of them planned to participate in the auction. That's when I decided to buy it. Within 3 days, Andrew gathered information, scheduled house inspection, formulated strategy and finally prevailed in the auction with a price much lower than I expected. His integrity, insight and professionalism ensures the accomplishment of the goal.Highly recommend!

Alana & Matt Bowker · First home buyers (St Kilda)

We bought our first home with the buyer advocacy services of through Industry Insider.

We decided to use Andrew as we were struggling to buy our first home due to lack of experience, knowledge and support.

Throughout the three months we worked with Andrew, we found him to be very approachable, knowledgeable and honest. He made buying our first home a stress-free experience and saved us money.

Andrew is very approachable – we could ring, text and email him at any time or day of the week, and we always received a prompt response. He was also prompt in his actions; property inspections were arranged very quickly, and we had our building and pest inspection completed within 24 hours of seeing a property we wanted to put an offer on.

His knowledge in real estate is second to none. The fact that he has worked as an estate agent in the past means he understands what vendors have to go through to sell their home, how agents market homes they are selling and how to negotiate. Because he knows the market inside out it gives you, the purchaser, the best chance of buying at a good price.

His experience in real estate also means he has many real estate contacts, which meant we were able to see homes privately before they went to market and, if appropriate, we could provide an offer to the vendor and potentially avoid going to auction; this was how we bought our first house.

Andrew was very realistic and honest with us. If we saw a property, no matter how much we liked it, he would honestly say if it was going to be out of our budget or if it was not in a good location or not positioned well on the block etc. Because of this, we didn’t waste time thinking about a property and didn’t get emotionally attached.

It was because Andrew did the work for us – arranging the inspections, liaising with the selling agent, negotiating on our behalf and organising his own building and pest inspectors and conveyancer – that we saved money. We didn’t have to pay for multiple building and pest inspections on properties that realistically weren’t appropriate for us, and we bought privately before it went to auction.

We can confidently say that without Andrew we would not have gotten the house we are lucky enough to call our first home.

Wendy Pike · Investor (Sydney)

I was recently looking at buying an investment property in Melbourne. I decided to employ Andrew Date as my buyer's advocate.

From our first conversation, I could see the tremendous value that Andrew could offer through his knowledge of the market and his contacts in the Melbourne market place.

Andrew showed me through seven properties in total before we found a property with a land component of 1000sqm and future development potential.

There was competition from other buyers at the time; however, with Andrew on my side, negotiating and completing the due diligence, I was able to secure a great investment property.

I highly recommend Andrew for anyone who is looking to purchase either their first home or investment property. Andrew was able to save me time and he knows the market.

Thanks once again, Andrew.


James Lehane · (Melbourne)

I first heard about the services of Industry Insider through a friend I do business with. I was looking to buy a larger family home and as soon as I found the property I wanted, I needed to place my home on the market. I was searching for property by myself but really didn’t understand the value of the property I was looking to purchase. I didn’t want to overpay for a property.

After deciding to employ Andrew, it was evident that his professionalism and knowledge of the real estate arena was going to make buying and selling a lot smoother than if I did it on my own.

I purchased a home in Mt Eliza on an acre of land with bay views, it is absolutely perfect for my family, and we are excited to be moving into the property. While we purchased, Andrew was able to select the best agent to help me sell my home. This was all completed off-market with no advertising, saving me time and money.

I highly recommend Andrew’s services as a vendor and buyers agent.
