Buying a home for most is timely, scary, exhilarating and emotionally taxing to say the least.
Searching for a property normally starts as the great Australian dream but can turn into a nightmare over the countless weekends of foot stomping. Searching for the dream home. Which normally leads to disappointment in soooo many ways, from Real Estate agents using the tricks to under quote just to get bums on seats for Auctions.

Who is Elaine Davies?
For many years Elaine worked successfully as a real estate agent, and has the awards to prove it. In 2010, to even out the playing field between property buyers and sellers, she jumped ship and become a buyer’s agent. Since then, in cold to sizzling markets, she’s negotiated hundreds of properties for her clients. Personally, she has been a tenant, is a landlord and whether on her own, with an (ex) husband or with a friend, has bought and sold her own investment properties and family homes. She knows the lot and is known to be an all-round, go-to property expert! She also has a knack of cutting through the fog and opening clients up to new options to put them in charge of the negotiation process.
Along with sharp negotiation skills and property knowledge, Elaine is an educator who knows that without a strong mindset no amount of skill set will work in your favour. She teaches people to focus on their financial and personal future through subjects such as goal-setting, visualising, respecting money and being very picky with who you surround yourself with. As well as property and people, her passions are comedy, travel and most importantly, her family and friends.
