We are licensed Real Estate Settlement Agents covering all areas of Western Australia with over 35 years experience in the industry.
The choice of a settlement agent is yours and yours alone
When buying or selling, whether residential, commercial or industrial property, privately (without an agent), Divorced, inheritance properties or through a real estate agent, the choice of a settlement agent is yours and yours alone. It is not a decision to be made by your Real Estate agent. There are compelling reasons to have an independent Settlement Agent acting for you, rather than one that has a financial relationship with a Real Estate agent. We strongly suggest that you make an informed decision and consider what we have to offer.
Minimal fuss, Minimal waiting.
We are totally focused on your interests to ensure that your settlement proceeds with minimum stress and delay.
