Three’s a crowd in today’s episode. This week we’ve got Joshua Coleman – a valuer, buyer’s agent and finalist of 2016 Buyers Agent of the Year.
First, What is a Buyers Agent?
A buyers agent is basically a hybrid between a real estate and a property valuer that works for you to find, negotiate and buy property. They’ll go out and hunt a property down, potentially do the whole thing for you.
In this episode:
- Josh breaks down a couple of things you wouldn’t otherwise know when buying properties, including some of the best (and worst) deals he has seen, how bank valuations work and a few emerging areas to check out in Brisbane.
My background is quite varied, I did two degrees at university a Bachelor of Property Economics and a Masters of Applied Finance. During that time I started off in valuation and specialised in airports, seaports etc along with residential and commercial. I learnt a lot then decided to use that knowledge to work with JLL as a Queensland buyer’s advocate.
