The age of mass marketing properties is quickly approaching an end. Highly targeted marketing is now essential. We know how and where to find your buyers.

If you are paying any more than 1% commission, you could be paying too much.

There’s is no proof nor guarantee that paying higher commissions equal a higher sales price. None!

In fact every agent has reduced their original sales prices many many times. So why pay more than you need to.

Look we get that you may have developed a relationship with a particular agent. But seriously, we are not talking just hundreds, but thousands of dollars. That’s money you lose permanently.

We are a full service agency. And for just 1% commission, we handle all buyer enquires, inspections and sales negotiations. 

We’re the same – but better!




Below are some case studies on how we have helped customers in different ways to sell their property.

The Classic Scenario

A Brisbane couple came to us after having tried a well known agency.

At first they we skeptical as they could not find anything about us on the web. Of course we explained, that was intentional and in fact was most likely the reason why their property had not sold.

You see they engaged an agent that told them what they wanted to hear just to get their listing.

By the time this agents time was up, the property was stale and buyers had lost interest.

Worse, they had spent nearly $10,000 on marketing that in essence did nothing other than promote the agent and agencies brand.

This is a classic scenario where agencies tell you “you can’t sell a secret” type of rubbish statement. That’s all very well, but they’re not the ones just wasted nearly $10,000 out their pocket.

Fortunately all was not lost as we could still help. We evaluated their property and what market it would most suit. Then we commenced our own property marketing and within 2 weeks, that’s right 2 weeks, we sold for well over market value.

To Make Over Or Not

Most agencies will tell you to spend money doing up your property prior to selling it.

Well it depends on whom your target market is.

We sold a “return serviceman’s home” as is, with not a lick of paint.

Our client was told by numerous agents you must get some landscaping done, repaint inside and out, attend to a minor roof repair and so. Oh and yes, pay for advertising on top.

Bollocks we said!

It’s about knowing the market and who the likely buyers are. And we sold this property for 20% more than what other agents had said it would fetch.

And without the owner spending one cent.

Achieving The Best Price

People search for features but buy on emotion. They enter their features preferences, then narrow down by price. Then when it comes to buying they buy on how it feels, how it looks, if my friends will be envious, or will it be a better investment that 100 other properties etc.

These are all not quantifiable. In other words, X cannot always equals Y. It depends who’s viewing it and what it means to them and ALSO what else they are comparing it to.

As an agent we estimate value but we can’t create that market value. Agents try to make it as an attractive option as possible. One of the skills of an agent is being able to tap into their emotions in persuading them to buy your property compared to maybe 100 other properties.


The sales price we got was amazing. We had more buyers wanting our property than I thought possible. Just amazing results. No complaints at all.

We saved heaps on what we would have paid with other agencies and got the price we wanted. Great work Mcbeath team.

M.Portas / Brisbane


I was told I needed to sell via auction to get the best price. Not so. We got a great price and in less than 3 weeks. Wow, very impressed.

R. Huddle / Brisbane


I own 11 investment properties and have sold 4 with Mcbeath as they always get the very best prices with the least amount cost to me.

A. Stevens / Brisbane


I must say i was very happy when we sold without having a large sign outside our house. And the whole process was fabulous.

A. Wilkson / Brisbane


We had tried 3 other agents. The other agents were all typical hype. But McBeath did their job with no fuss and achieved a fantastic price.
