Sydney Buyers Agent Testimonials

Over the last few years Metropole have probably bought more properties for its clients than any other buyers agent in Australia.

Our post purchase survey of hundreds of clients from all walks of life found that 97% were very happy with our service. We were unable to find exactly what the other 3% wanted, in these cases they were not charged a purchase fee.

Here are some samples of the many, many testimonials Metropole Property Strategists Sydney have from our satisfied clients…

Since meeting Michael and George I have come to realise the many expensive mistakes I am making. My mindset has changed, I have a strategy and a clear roadmap to reaching my goals. And I get to spend much more time with my young family. In fact, I only show up once to see and agree on the purchase of the property.

George and his wonderful team have purchased blue chip properties for me, at least two properties were purchased before being listed with any of the real estate websites. The growth of the properties purchased through Metropole are stable and have shown far better growth than any of the properties I purchased on my own. All purchases have been at least ten percent less than what I was prepared to and thought I would pay and this includes Metropoles buyer’s agent fees.

I have known George for seven years now and been a client of Metropole for five years. My experience has been very positive. I can honestly say George has gone above and beyond my expectations. George provided me with support with my properties that were purchased outside of Metropole. For example, the house in Bexley North, Farm house in Tasmania and an apartment in Coffs Harbour. George is instrumental in the success I have achieved so far. If I didn’t meet George when I did I am sure I would have either given up on the idea or at least be struggling at the low end of the market somewhere.My buyer’s agents have been pleasant to work with. They regularly keep me informed of any updates and work quickly when opportunity arises. A special thanks to a special lady Dona James-Wells for making my most recent purchase seamless and pleasant. I love the harbour views – Thank you sooo much for your hard work and dedication! You are a gem!

We would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to the Metropole team. Your team’s professionalism and experience is second to none. Metropole made the whole process from gaining finance through to buying a property quite easy. We would like to give buyer’s agent Tracey a big thumbs up. She always delivered potential investments that exceeded our expectations in own selection criteria. We couldn’t be happier with our latest purchase. We were after an investment with great growth prospects and we believe we achieved this. We look forward to using the services of metropole for our next investment.


– Adam & Ace, NSW

From our initial meeting with Leon to our eventual purchase, we could not have been more satisfied with the service we received.

Tracey our Buyer’s Agent worked very hard to get us the property we acquired, a great size one bedder at a competitive price in a middle ring suburb of Sydney.

Thanks so much to the team at Metropole, especially Tracey and Leon, we are very happy with our purchase and would have no problem recommending your services.

Many thanks,

– Paul , NSW

Over the last several years we have worked with Metropole and we highly recommend their buying, consulting and property management services. With their assistance we have successfully purchased investment properties and our dream home. In addition to that they manage our rental properties too.

During the process we evaluated several buying agencies and found them to be the most capable and trustworthy. Their initial process was about understanding how they could help us – providing similar examples of how they have helped customers before – and then offering us a solid perspective and plan – and at that point we could then make a decision based on confidence and trust. It was not just about how they could qualify what our budget was and then ask us to sign a form before they could invest any time in helping us!

Over the years their team have provided proactive and experienced service. They have also connected us with reliable and trustworthy businesses within their network. It’s been great to see their business grow and over this time, while the overall process of investing in property has never been easy, they certainly make it much, much easier. More importantly our properties have all proven to be positive investments and without Metropole, I don’t believe we would have been able to get to where we are today.

– Andrew & Julie-Ann, NSW

This is the first time I have used Metropole to purchase a property, and in a word I have found the whole experience “easy”. Leon and Dona are great to deal with and nothings a problem.
They found properties in suburbs that I normally would not consider, and I’m very happy with my purchase. I also decided to deal with companies associated with Metropole i.e. Financial, legal etc. and this also saved me so much time and effort as they worked well together to make the purchase happen without issues.
Also thanks to Michael for his advice in setting up a property strategy for the future.

– Greg, NSW

Property number 3 with the Sydney team. I’ve had great results with the first 2 and it’s now just a matter of following the same process again this time. With the team of experts, it makes it much easier than doing it yourself and I get a better result as each of the specialists has helped me get a better result than I could. Thanks George for the regular reviews to check how I’m going, Tracey for doing the leg work and sourcing properties which tick all the right boxes for a solid investment and bringing together the coordination of Finance and Conveyancing for me.

Thanks again,

– Chris and Susan, NSW

Throughout the whole process Diane used her personal knowledge and connections in the industry to gain me a great property that has already appreciated much in value. I got a good property in a great location and I would recommend her to anyone.

– Tony Strik, Sydney, NSW


The service I have received from Metropole has been fantastic, in so many ways. Nicholas took the time to make sure he understood what I was after and worked very hard to source a property not only up to my standard but also fit within his/Metropole’s very distinct selection criteria. I was lucky enough to have input from Michael Yardney. I have also been very happy with other referrals Metropole have made, whether it’s an accountant or landlord’s insurance. I am very confident that the service provided by the team at Metropole was well worth the cost and I am already looking at how to speed up my next purchase utilising their services once more! I have recommended Metropole to my friends and am exploring the possibility of undertaking a small development project with Metropole’s input. It’s excellent to be invited to the continuing events/seminars where I can continue to become educated about property investing.

– Michael, Sydney, NSW

I was looking to add to my property portfolio, and after discussion with Metropole on the best strategy for me, we decided that a small block of units in Sydney was the right next step. George Raptis and the Sydney team used their industry connections to source and filter a variety of options. We narrowed options down to an art-deco block of four in Sydney’s eastern suburbs that had a number of value-adding ‘twists’, and having done our sums, had a good idea of what to pay. Rolf and the Metropole Finance team came up with a creative financing solution, and we managed to purchase the block at a great price. I’m now exploring a range of value-adding renovation/ development options. I’ve been very happy with the knowledgeable and professional service of the Metropole team.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and George for the support/work in the process of Purchasing the Bond St property – appreciated your professionalism & meeting my initial expectations in terms of the property that I had anticipated in purchasing – once again. Thanks.

– Franco, Sydney NSW

I would like to thank you for the professional service finding a premium property in record time. What may have taken months to achieve on my own has been achieved in weeks. You have found a property that has exceeded my expectations both in value, position and ongoing capital growth. The savings made in time and purchase price have far outstripped any buying fee and have silenced any sceptics I know.

– B Linke, Benalla VIC

I’ve just had my offer accepted to purchase a property in Bentleigh East I just wanted to say thank you to you to the team who has been involved in this project so far it has been a very positive and exciting experience thus far. Michael, thanks for establishing and running Metropole in the way that you do. Armchair development is the perfect next step in my investing career. Pamela, thanks for your passion for helping others. It’s easy to choose a company that embodies such high and human traits.

– Blair Kurtz, Sydney NSW

Thank you for all you have done to assist in this important step in our lives. Your commitment in supporting us has been a welcome breath of fresh air amonts such average performance of others. You are excellent at what you do! Wishing you all the very best!

– Ben & Kathy Segal, Sydney NSW

So far we have purchased three properties via Metropole. Diane Johnson helped us to buy our latest unit in Marrickville and I cannot overstate the value I have received working with Diane. It is fair to say that she went over and beyond her call of duty, not only negotiating the best deal for us but being proactive and smart in getting the contract to our lawyers before other potential buyers had a chance to move. Her persistence, professionalism and commitment allowed us to buy a wonderful property at the best possible price. She kept us well informed throughout the process with regular contacts to update us on the progress, giving us confidence and making the whole process stress free and easy. To tell that we appreciate her honest and hard work as our agent is to say nothing. Diane is awesome! We are so grateful to Diane for everything she has done, and to George for recommending Diane to be our agent. Great job Diane! I would not hesitate to recommend Metropole and Diane in particular to anyone. Thanks, Diane, you are amazing!

– Maria & Yuri, Sydney NSW

In our dealings with Metropole we have nothing but praise. From the outset Metropole showed a high degree of professionalism. In particular we were impressed with Diane Johnson, our buyer’s agent, who was clearly committed to our needs. Her strong interpersonal skills enabled information to be conveyed articulately, ensuring that we were constantly updated through each step of the process. Diane’s contacts and insider knowledge about the market also provided us with opportunities that we may have otherwise have not had. Diane took all of the stress out of buying a good quality investment property, and for that we have no hesitation in highly recommending Metropole to those looking to buy a property.

– Pat & Jo, Sydney NSW

Just wanted to pass on to you my gratitude of the work done thoughout the entire process of identifying my investment needs, locating an appropriate property and negotiating it’s price, to the purchase and paperwork involved. Being new to the investment property game I believe your services have been invaluable… and I look forward to dealing with Metropole in the near future.

– Andrew Wise Perth WA

I just wanted to thank you for helping me obtain such a wonderful property with so much potential and meeting all my criteria. I was a little nervous buying a property in another state, which I have no knowledge of and putting my trust in a buyers agent. But after discussing my requirements and hearing your suggestions and advice and seeing the property that you came up with, I would not hesitate to recommend Metropole. What has impressed me is not only the research that you did for me to find the right property but all the investigations prior to purchase you did to put me at ease. The follow up service post purchase, has also been fantastic like organising access to the property before settlement to start the renovations and all the reminder notes of what to do. Any requests I have made have been followed up promptly. All in all everything from finding the right property, the auction bidding and follow up service has been fantastic and your experience and knowledge shows. I will definitely be using your services again in the near future when finance allows.

Yesterday saw settlement on the above unit. Our first investment property! (read ‘first of many’). Frances and I would like to thank you both for your diligent work, assistance and professional service. With your help we were able to purchase a property within a month of our second daughter being born and 24 days after I attended one of your Property Investment Briefings. Now it is a question of taking a deep breath, letting the dust settle and then contacting you to see about a second investment. In the meantime, if you come across a property you think we should know about, please contact us.

Though I already have several properties that I have found and negotiated myself I decided to use Metropole to help me to buy my next investment property for two reasons. Firstly because their full time presence in the market gives them a better understanding of values and opportunities than me, as well as better relationships with the selling agents, and secondly because they prided themselves as being able to find properties “with a twist”, which is an opportunity to make some quick returns. I also talked with the people at Metropole that I would be working with and was very comfortable with them. Metropole found a unit in Malvern for me. All of this happened while I was living in Malaysia and, in fact, was on a holiday at an island resort! I would recommend Metropole to anyone who is new to the property market or who does not have the huge amount of time required to do proper research.
