"We hadn't used a Buyers Agent before and were initially unsure of how much value a Buyers Agent was going to bring to the table.
After buying our home with Franks help, we have no hesitation in recommending him.
His experience, contacts and advice were extremely valuable and we feel we've made a great purchase in a short time frame with ease and very little stress.”
"For 3 years I've tried to buy a property, always getting outdone by other buyers dealing with sellers agents and their games, so I decided to try to get a Buyers Agent.
Once when I met Frank I found out right away he was honest and down to earth and looking only after his customers, I found a unit I loved and was going to go to auction in 3 weeks ... Frank within 1 week got it for me for cheaper than I thought it would cost!
I could not believe it !!!! It didn't go to auction, I had tears in my eyes as this is my first property.
Frank Russo has been right there for me holding my hand through each step, really caring for me, I can call him anytime and he is always there to answer 100 of my questions and he also calls me to see how things are going as well.
Frank from the bottom of my heart thank you!!!!
If you are looking to buy property you need to get Frank by your side.
He is honest, down to earth, professional and cares, really, really cares about you and your needs. Again thank you, Frank !!!!"
“When I set out to work with a buyers advocate, I was looking for someone who was thorough, smart and was committed to securing me the best possible property within my price range.
Frank Russo was this and more. He exceeded my expectations at every turn.
His hard work, background knowledge, network and good sense of judgement were essential in securing me a property that I am delighted with.
I would not hesitate to recommend Frank to those who are buying their first (or tenth) property and who are struggling to get a read on the highly competitive and expensive suite of options in the eastern suburbs.
I am already looking forward to working with Frank when the opportunity next presents itself."
"Frank Russo is a consummate professional who knows how to navigate through a very tricky market - and make it easy for the client. Highly recommended."
"We would wholeheartedly recommend Frank Russo as a buyers agent.
He found us an investment apartment within a few weeks of signing up. We are absolutely thrilled with the result.
Frank was very personable, professional and knew his 'stuff'!
He was a master negotiator and knew when to hold back and when to show his hand.
Frank's contacts with all the real estate agents in the area we were looking was invaluable in finding the right property.
We were initially hesitant as we hadn't used a buyers agent in the past but will now be using Frank for every purchase we make in the future and have already recommended him to our family and friends.
He managed to secure us a brilliant buy below market value and did all the research and foot walk for us. We both work full time so this too was invaluable.”
"We can unreservedly recommend Frank Russo as a top buyers agent. He knows the market inside out, never gives up and is patient beyond measure.
When it comes to negotiating you definitely want him on your team. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with him!
"Very professional, highly recommend"
"Frank Russo was a pleasure to work with!
He truly understood our needs and what we were looking for and persisted until he got the best outcome for us.
It was a smooth and enjoyable process from beginning to end and he took all the hard work out of searching and buying a home. Also Frank is very knowledgeable on all suburbs in Sydney which is bonus when your search criteria is rather large.
I will definitely be working with Frank again when we need to look for our next home!"
“Frank Russo provided thorough and well thought out recommendations from which I ended up with my first investment property
All the recommendations were taken through a strenuous process before they were presented and were suited to my preferences which were explored during our catch-ups.
The amount of value that Frank provided was invaluable and everyone should speak to him before making any moves in the real estate space. Thanks Frank.”
"I'm one of those people and I have gladly referred Frank Russo to others before. He helped find 7 properties in Brisbane that met my key criteria to review and I bought one.
Frank did a great job and took the time to understand what I wanted and kept me well informed along the way.
I moved from Brisbane over 5 years ago and didn't have the time to fly backwards and forwards so I found the service invaluable in making a good investment."
"Frank Russo successfully delivered on a tough brief in an extremely competitive market much quicker than I thought was possible. Would be very happy to recommend."
“Working with Frank Russo and the team was simple, easy and exceptionally professional.
We would recommend the engagement of Search Find Invest to any buyer who would like to get a heads up in a very difficult market the right guidance to secure a property."
“Frank Russo achieved in 3 weeks what we had been trying to achieve for years.....a house for our family. (if only we had found him sooner)
Aside from the essential buyers agent traits; outstanding negotiator, vast contact list, good rapport with all local agents and inside knowledge, we particularly liked Frank for his genuine and non-pretentious nature.
He was incredibly patient whilst we deliberated over various options and provided sound advice backed up with facts, when necessary providing full property appraisals.
He also put up and assisted with the children on the occasions they were subjected to viewings!
I would definitely recommend Frank and hope to use him again in the future”
“We were looking for a family home in Sydney's Inner West, had a limited budget and very tight requirements on the style of property and location we wanted; in short, it was a tough brief :)
6 weeks after we signed on Frank Russo successfully negotiated a pre-auction bid on an amazing place and we’re getting ready to move in.
Frank is dedicated, tenacious, strategic and brings with him a depth of knowledge and experience about the property market that gave us, as first home buyers, a competitive edge.
Frank manages the entire process end to end, searching for and refining properties to suit your brief, attending inspections and providing insights and analysis on the logical value of a property so you don’t put yourself in the position of becoming emotionally invested and overbidding.
Ultimate question: If I were looking to buy another property, would I use Frank again? Absolutely – he would be my first phone call.
I honestly believe we would have had zero chance of securing the right place without him”
“I cannot recommend Frank highly enough! If you are wondering whether to go with a buyers agent or not wonder no more.
Frank secured our place after just two weeks to the day of looking, as opposed to the months and months we spent on our own.
He is fantastic, gets on with your search immediately and provides great advice along the way. Myself and my partner are over the moon!!!
The list of specifications I gave Frank have been met, 100%.
As I said at the start of this review I absolutely cannot recommend Frank highly enough. Totally amazing!!! :)!!”
“Following a period of personal trauma, my family home was sold and I was facing a countdown to moving out with nowhere to go.
I was working full time, single parenting, house hunting, packing up my old life and wasting time and money as I missed out at auctions time and again. A close friend recommend a buyer’s agent, specifically Frank Russo.
At a time in my life when I was fragile, Frank was kind.
At a time when I needed advice, he was practical.
He listened carefully to my needs, visited my home and met my family to understand my lifestyle. Together we assessed scores of properties before eventually securing my future home.
Frank's background in trades meant he could offer suggestions to enhance the space further; as a savvy investor himself, he could explain the risk and opportunity my choice presented.
Against the odds we found a place I believe my family will be happy in, under budget thanks to Frank's superior negotiation skills and ability to secure pre-auction! We even managed to meet the deadline of my imminent settlement.
The property I selected was not off-market, a benefit I suspect many people predominantly associate with buyers agent services; but regardless the engaging, expert service I received was worth every cent.
Frank saved my sanity and changed the experience from traumatic to fun. From now on I shall always think of him as a friend.”
“Having Frank on our team was the best decision we could have made.
Within a week, we purchased our first investment property in an outstanding CBD location well within our budget.
We're convinced that this property would have been well beyond our reach if it weren't for Frank's fantastic negotiating skills
He was always quick to respond to any questions we had and his advice was invaluable.
Frank has purchased me yet another off market gem of a property in Bondi Beach to add to my portfolio. This property is so desirable that I have decided to move into it and enjoy for myself.
There is absolutely no way I would have been able to secure on my own.
Frank found the property and expertly negotiated the purchase, showing yet again he has mastered the skills of his craft.
Thank you Frank. ”
“After a lengthy period of research and open days we found a property in a very popular area that ticked almost all of our boxes. We anticipated significant competition and decided to use a Buyer’s Agent to improve our chances of success. We interviewed various agents and felt most comfortable with Frank. This was without doubt the best decision we made.
Frank met with us after hours, listened to and heard all our concerns and came back to us with an estimate of the property’s value that turned out to be very accurate. He was available at short term for inspections and meetings. You can imagine our surprise when we decided to visit the property at 9:30 pm on a Friday night and found Frank standing outside doing the same.
Throughout the process, he was an incredibly stabling influence. He developed a strategy and was military-like in its implementation. Most importantly was the way he timed the execution to a successful pre-auction purchase.
This was the first time we had used a Buyer’s Agent and we initially thought this was expensive. Having completed the process, we can honestly say this was worth every cent. We are so pleased to have met Frank. We cannot recommend him highly enough.
Thank you so much Frank.”
“Vittoria and Frank were recommended to me by a friend to assist us in finding a new property for my fiancé and I.
We had been looking unsuccessfully for months and were becoming frustrated by the whole process! While we ended up finding the property on our own we enlisted Franks help for the auction process.
Despite engaging him late in the piece Frank immediately made himself completely available to us. He was available night and day via phone and replied extremely promptly which is invaluable when needing to make important decisions quickly.
I was feeling stressed and overwhelmed by the prospect of the auction process but Frank was magic in keeping the situation calm and explaining the whole process start to finish. His depth of knowledge and experience in the industry was extremely reassuring.
On auction day Frank's work was priceless! He secured our dream home on the first bid in a move that I have no doubt saved us over $100K! I literally cannot recommend Frank and his team highly enough. Thank you so so much! :-)”
“Frank exceeded all of my expectations, saved me time and saved me money...my only regret was not engaging him sooner! Upon meeting Frank, I was impressed with his knowledge of the property market, his deep understanding of the buying process and his genuine interest in helping me to secure a property for a great price.
After spending a day inspecting houses with Frank, I was confident that he would not only meet the brief on my behalf, but that he would go out of his way to ensure he would exceed my expectations. Within less than a fortnight, Frank had secured a property before auction that ticked all of the boxes for me for a price that was well below what I had expected to pay (particularly at auction).
Throughout the process he listened carefully to my needs, prepared excellent detailed reports, followed up promptly and provided sound advice on my options without any pressure at all. The thing that stood out most for me was Frank’s passion to deliver an exceptional outcome for me. Frank genuinely cared about my needs and worked tirelessly to help me secure the right property at a fantastic price.
He also operated far beyond my expectations in his role as a buyers agent - I learnt so much through Frank offering some great advice and sharing some insights from his wealth of experience in building and investing. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and I have already recommended him to other people I know who are in a similar position to myself. My only regret is not engaging him sooner!”
After months of searching and failing at several final negotiations, I contacted Frank Russo. Frank outlined a thoroughly professional approach to the purchase of a two bedroom unit, and advised me on his approach to obtaining a property.
He was clear and confident of the pending success. Within 48 hours, I was viewing properties carefully targeted to my requirements.
Frank is diligent, and worked tirelessly to deliver a property better than my expectations given my limited budget. Within 2 weeks, I had succeeded with Franks expert advice and skills of negotiation.
My thanks to Frank Russo and his service. I highly recommend Frank Russo, a professional who delivers results, in this challenging market, in a timely manner, ”
“We are very happy with the service Frank provided us and if you are planning to buy in the Eastern Suburbs we totally recommend him. His timeliness and experience have been pivotal in securing our property in just three days!”
“I met Frank Russo when he acted as a Buyers Agent for a family member.
I was impressed by his professionalism, and engaged his services for an investment property.
He has fulfilled all expectations to the utmost. He is loyal to me as his principal, seeking our properties, researching overheads and current market prices.
Readily available, and finally negotiating a satisfactory purchase price.
I can wholeheartedly recommend him.”
“Frank Russo was very professional, understanding, and patient through the entire process of our house search.
He was able to take our inputs and provide many options and ideas on how to proceed with securing a property. He gave us information on multiple suburbs and provided options that were suitable and appropriate for us in those suburbs.
Frank follows up promptly and was able to arrange inspections, private inspections, provided detailed valuations and comparable properties report when necessary.
Frank has the right negotiation skill.
We would definitely recommend Frank to secure the right property for you”
“I recently used Frank to purchase a property which I would not have otherwise known about as the property was an off market opportunity.
The house met every single criteria on my list. Until that purchase, I had never understood the benefit of a buyer’s agent as I had a good knowledge of houses for sale in the area.
Frank was so professional and made the whole experience stress free from start to finish and even after the sale process was completed.
Frank provided me with a comprehensive list of comparable sales in the area so that I knew if the property was priced well, arranged private inspections, prepared his own floor plan of the property, arranged a building and pest report within hours and even attended the auction and bid on my behalf.
I highly recommend using Frank as a buyer’s agent."
“I have just successfully purchased a property using Frank Russo as my buyer’s agent.
Frank was a great asset. He helped me find a great property and he was able to negotiate a great deal in a very short time frame.
I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to take the stress out of buying a property.
“Franks in depth knowledge of the area and contacts with the local selling agents has helped me secure another off market property in one of the best locations in Bondi Beach. ...MoreFranks in depth knowledge of the area and contacts with the local selling agents has helped me secure another off market property in one of the best locations in Bondi Beach.
I believe using a professional like Frank is the only way to ensure you get the best result with your property purchase.
Frank lives and breathes his profession, and follows through with everything he says, always”
“After 8 months of inspections and failed auctions, Frank has bought our Saturdays back. In a little over 2 weeks, he secured us our first home. We only regret not approaching him sooner. ...MoreAfter 8 months of inspections and failed auctions, Frank has bought our Saturdays back.

We only regret not approaching him sooner.
We will definitely recommend him to others and engage him again on future purchases”
“Frank's determination to find us the perfect investment opportunity was outstanding!
He kept us informed throughout the process, and didn't give up!
Thank you Frank for making it a pleasurable, and memorable experience! ... now... let's find the next one ;)"
“I can't recommend Frank Russo highly enough.
We had never considered a buyer’s agent before and thought it to be too expensive or unnecessary but he has proved us wrong.
The market has been tough with very little stock and Frank's input was invaluable and very much great value.
He was always available, a great communicator and most importantly took the time to get to know us to refine what we were looking for.
What I liked about Frank initially was that his retainer was very low compared to the others we'd spoken to so he was willing to back himself to get us a result with a low risk to us.
He's a skilled negotiator and brings more than that with a background of building experience and a wealth of property knowledge that gave us confidence in his ability.
On top of that he's a genuine person who clearly has a passion for what he does.
We really enjoyed working with him and I'd strongly recommend at least talking to him to see how he could help your property search.
It's a tough market at present and our purchase was achieved on a very desirable property with a lot of competition in a timely manner. Many thanks Frank”
“I am glad I used the expertise of a buyer's agent like Frank.
He helped with the inspection and valuation of a property I was interested in.
He assisted in the negotiations with the seller's agent highlighting some important tactics that are employed in such process.
I eventually secured the property with a pre-auction offer which I don't think would have been successful if I were to do it alone.
I highly recommend his use”
“Frank has made finding a property easy.
He takes care of everything and keeps you up to date to latest market developments.
Would happily recommend him to others and/or buy with him again”
“Frank is a true professional. He is personable, patient and really had our best interests at heart.
We wanted access to off market properties to avoid competition, and he certainly delivered for us.
I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a property without hesitation!”
"I had been looking to buy an investment unit for 2 years without success.
After meeting with Frank and briefing him, he found the type of unit I had been looking for within 1 month of our first meeting, an off market investment in Bondi of the Eastern Suburbs
Frank presented a number of properties in a short time frame, and negotiated successfully late on a Friday afternoon to secure my preferred property at a price below market value.
Frank saved me time in my search which in this rising market = money saved and gains made.
I am in the process of signing another agency agreement with Frank so I can get my next one as soon as possible”
"Thank-you so much Frank for helping me secure my dream home!
I found Franks service to be highly professional, caring and personalised.
I would strongly recommend him to anyone wishing to make the whole process smooth and successful”
"We spent many months trying to purchase a suitable property for our family, with no success.
Then we found Frank.
His calm, measured approach was just what we needed and within a matter of weeks he had located exactly the kind of property we had hoped for and secured it for us, hassle free.
He was encouraging, positive and professional the entire time and truly made it an enjoyable, stress free experience.
I can't thank Frank enough, I know we would not have found our new home without his help."
"Frank made the whole process easy. Within 2 weeks we had a property that exactly matched what we were looking for, which was something to renovate and at a great price point. Having a builder's background was of huge benefit.
Extremely down to earth, Frank always had our back which is a rarity. Plus Frank also ended up getting us a great price for the property.
My first experience using a Buyers Agent and would highly recommend Frank to anyone in the future."
“I am a new houseowner and I can wholeheartedly recommend Frank Russo without reservation.
He made the entire process stress free. (and I was very stressed)
From our first meeting to today, Frank kept me informed every step of the way AND negotiated an amazing price for my purchase.
I cannot thank him enough. From viewings to arranging a lawyer to final negotiation Frank was outstanding!!
11/10 and a truly nice guy. You are safe in his hands.”
“I bought a property today after engaging Frank Russo whom I have known for a number of years. When I first started looking for a new home I simply wanted a bigger house, the ability to entertain friends and a car parking space. I was not prepared for the journey I was about to embark on and I learnt so much more than I expected about taking risks, trust, openness and being self-aware. I also learnt about being happy with my choices, acting quickly and taking chances in order to be successful.
Frank has been a mentor, guide, facilitator and master at his trade.
He is also a genuinely kind person who cares about the well-being of his customers and he never let me down.
I would highly recommend Frank. Today is great turning point for me. I hope it is also a great achievement for Frank, anyone who can help you see the future is definitely worth having on your side”
“What a pleasure! Frank helped us secure our first home and we couldn't be happier. He is a family man with family values and our trust in each other was cemented from our first meeting together.
His helpful advice was offered for free on a number of occasions before we committed to enlisting him as our buyer's agent.
We are so happy we found Frank and SFI and would gladly recommend them to anyone else looking for assistance on the property market and securing a property. Feel free to ask Frank for my phone number if you'd like to discuss our experience further”
“On the basis of my experience, that is to say, in finding for me an apartment that suited my fairly difficult requirements, Frank Russo has all the qualities required of a good Buyers’ Agent; and above all that of knowing when to look on and wait, and when to move.
And when he moves, he moves quickly, and with imagination and precision.
For me he has done very good works indeed!”
"Having never used or contemplated using a buyer's agent before, I found Frank to be an invaluable asset in the whole stressful search process. Where I had previously spent up to 12 months looking for a property and been outbid on more than a few occasions, I found a very good property at a very good price within a few weeks, operating within a very tight budget, thanks to Frank's skill & determination.
Frank showed great skill in navigating every step of the process, from market research & scoping out suitable places, to expertly negotiating with the selling agents. He is calm, patient, thorough, knowledgeable, hardworking & generous, combining a great knowledge of the real estate industry with impressive building expertise & financial knowledge & judgment.
I would highly recommend Frank to anyone wanting to take the time & stress out of the buying process."
“I recently purchased a property in Cammeray. I engaged a buyer’s agent after a few failed attempts of purchasing a property. I had spent a year driving around looking at properties that were gradually getting out of reach of my budget.
I was recommend by a real estate agent to Frank Russo. He introduced me to Sonia Jacob-Farr. We met on a cold dreary Friday night at her spectacular home.
Sonia and Frank gave honest feedback on how and what I could purchase and gave me options to make this affordable. It is a sum of money but in the long run this turned out to save money. I chose the option of finding the properties and Sonia assisting in the purchase.
Sonia met us promptly on the Saturday and then drove me around for the day looking at properties.
Sonia has an eye for potential! She could see how a negative could be turned into a positive.
I found a property I liked, and Sonia went about working out a strategy for how I could purchase this within my budget. There was issues with the property but Sonia turned these issues into a bargaining chip. This enable me to purchase the property within my budget.
She gave me confidence to bid (she will do it for you) for a property that in theory should have sold for more than I could afford.
I successfully purchased the property at auction!
Sonia then assisted with helping me measure up for wardrobes and the like. Suggested a handyman to assist. She liaise with the agent re accessing the property for Valuers and the like.
It is a great service. It isn’t cheap but it is worth the money.
I didn’t believe I would get off the renting merry go round. I am very relieved and thankful”
However upon finding Frank and securing his services the process became significantly easier. The search was curtailed into a short list of potential candidate properties that met our criteria.
Frank proved invaluable in his understanding of the process and leveraged his contacts in bringing about a mutually successful close prior to the auction date.
Frank is patient, trustworthy and extremely knowledgeable. We will be recommending Frank to our friends and colleagues and will certainly secure his services again as the opportunities arise”
“Thank you so much Frank for securing us our new home, we are thrilled with the property and the location is absolutely ideal for us. We really appreciate the way you dealt with everything, and showing us the many Off Market options that we wouldn’t have known about really gave us a broader array of properties to choose from.
The way you were able to negotiate with the agents and get us an even better outcome than we could have hoped for was nothing short of brilliant, especially in the competitive market we were buying in. I must admit I was a little nervous of using a Buyer’s Agent when we first started with you, but I am absolutely convinced that securing your services was the best property investment we ever made”
“Frank where to start? You have such a vast and vital knowledge of the property industry. In our short time together (this is how quickly Frank gets things done) Frank secured us our chosen property before it went to auction and we could not be happier!
At the first meeting, Frank took the time to understand our requirements/wish list and it all snowballed from there. Frank came to all the inspections with us and to be able to have firsthand his real-estate and building knowledge gave us a step above the rest. Frank is a highly skilled negotiator - actually scrap that… Frank is by far the best negotiator I have come across.
We chose to use Frank as our buyer’s agent as we understood that the market is infiltrated by people wishing to purchase for all different reasons and as we wanted to buy our place around the city fringes we were up against a lot of competition and we needed his expertise.
We wholeheartedly recommend Frank – his passion for this industry is evident in all that he does and he will do everything in his power to get the best results for you.”
“After two years of house hunting, we had become increasingly frustrated with feeling out of control in a housing market that seemed to keep overtaking us. We hated losing out at auction and eventually accepted that we might need some help.
Frank took time to understand our priorities - but also gently challenged our thinking. His in-depth knowledge of the Eastern Suburbs market was evident from the very first conversation. His building background helped us think laterally about improvements that could be made to properties we would otherwise have overlooked.
We built a trusting relationship with him in a short space of time. Frank opened our eyes to a property we ordinarily would have rejected, and then advised us on tactics which we would not have had the confidence to follow through on our own. His professional relationship with the seller's agents helped us to have real impact in a crowded market.
We are delighted with the house we have secured and are confident that it represents value. We feel certain we would still be hunting without Frank's help”
“After looking for a property for nearly a year, within four weeks of meeting Frank I had found one. His connections with real estate agents and his ability to negotiate were a powerful combination that allowed me to secure an investment property at below market”
“Engaging Frank was hands down the best decision we could have made when it came to securing our new home.
Before we engaged the services of Frank, we found Real Estate Agents to be flippant, they didn’t take us seriously, and we found them very difficult to deal with.
Things changed once we got Frank on board.
Having spent many Saturdays looking at properties with Frank, we came to realise a few things…
He has a great working relationship with many agents around Sydney, and knows how to use this to his (your) advantage.
While remaining calm and collected at all times, he can see a great opportunity from a mile away, and knows exactly when and how to strike.
His finger is always on the pulse, and he also provided us with opportunities that we may never had known existed otherwise.
Combining all this, Frank managed to find us the perfect home. We couldn’t have secured such a fantastic opportunity within our budget without him, we are sure of it!”
“Frank conducted a thorough search of various property markets, in search of the most suitable investment for my requirements.
He presented to me 7 different viable options, and was very thorough in going through each option and help me decide which one was the best choice.
I would never have been able to find all of those options in my limited free time, let alone conduct such thorough due diligence.
Very satisfied and very impressed !”
"I would like to express my deepest gratitude and satisfaction with the way you helped me during my property search. You have successfully achieved the result I could not achieve in 2.5 years of the market search, and you did it in just 2.5 months!!!
Your calm confident manner, keen desire to understand your client's needs, honesty and patience are few of the great qualities I appreciated in dealing with you.
You never put any pressure on me and always made it clear that you will spend as much time as needed to get the best result possible.
Being a single mother and a busy professional I found your service invaluable to me.
I can strongly recommend anyone who struggles on the property market and time poor like myself to use your help.
Thank you so much Frank for finding us our new home.”
“Purchasing a home on my own was a daunting process. Frank was informative and honest. Frank always made himself available to view properties, answer any queries promptly, and helped me to make a wise purchase. I am so happy with our new home and know that without Frank I would have paid more than the final negotiated price”
“It’s been a great pleasure to work with Frank. Within a short time he built a great connection with us and understood what we were after. He provided us valuable advice and appraisals for the many properties we looked at during the month. He was there with us inspecting the properties, bidding at auctions and pursued what we were interested to buy, leading to the successful result. A big thank you to Frank for negotiating and getting us the Aussie dream home.”
“After a recent separation from my wife, I decided to look for a place to buy in Bondi. Whilst still running a business & finalising details with my wife, life was pretty hectic! I noticed many of the properties I liked were selling before Auction & I simply wasn't able to keep up! On one day I attended over 15 inspections! I spoke to numerous agents who often left messages as I was so busy, often they would send me info on properties well outside of my search criteria, often they wouldn't even take me seriously enough to return emails, sms’s, phone calls etc. Then there's reading contracts, organising building inspections, strata reports etc. I didn't even get to these.
Then one day I got a message from Frank. Naturally I was sceptical at first, how can he save me money? What's his incentive to do this? How can he find the right property better than I could do myself? I recall we exchanged several emails & I had many more questions than above, Frank answered every one of them and I found myself beginning to nod my head, 'maybe he could help me', I thought. Then we decided to arrange a meeting where I again peppered him with many questions, and all his answers just made sense! More exposure to off market properties, being taken seriously by agents, his building background, (absolutely invaluable so I could factor in costs of repairs, reno's etc.), negotiating techniques, his knowledge of the market trends, availability to attend any inspections, understanding of the whole buying process, his contacts with agents, solicitors, financiers etc., assistance with directing my focus on the ideal property, & more.................
So Frank got the business and from day 1, Frank got on with the job, contacted 15 principal agents promptly so the effect was multiplied! I consistently received updates & every time we spoke, I found him to be very pleasant & continued to be impressed by his knowledge & approach. At this point there was very little for me to do except focus on the many other important things in my life, it sure gave me piece of mind having Frank in my corner & reduced the stress substantially! Frank managed to secure me a property that I'm really happy with, (showing it to me over a month before it was to hit the market) at a price much less than I expected! I looking forward to moving in next week.
Frank, I couldn't have done it without you mate & I'm very grateful to have had you on my side, call it fate? In any case, you have my phone number & I'm more than happy for you to pass it on to any prospective clients if they want to speak to a very happy client.”
“Search Find Invest secured a fantastic home for me. Their expert research and honest advice was invaluable. Frank negotiated a saving of $60k on what we researched it was worth, and what I was prepared to pay! Everything was handled smoothly and professionally. I highly recommend their services to anyone looking to buy a home. It was a wonderful experience working with Frank, he is very honest and gives sound advice when asked, very professional in a very well rounded approach and really takes the stress out of buying a home, particularly in the current strong market conditions. Thank you "Search Find Invest" for making me a happy home buyer.”
“We were sceptical about appointing a Buyer's Agent to help us secure our family home, it seemed like a lot of money to spend. The scepticism was misplaced and the investment in fees was more than covered by savings on the purchase price and our time. Frank showed us many properties that were off market and when we finally found the one we loved, he secured it for us very quickly, without it going to auction and significantly cheaper than what we would have paid without him handling the negotiation.
“Working as a Professional Financial Advisor, I found Frank’s property advice of a very high standard. When it came time to buying our own home, Franks ability to understand which properties will suit our lifestyle, while also being a sound investment, were a great re-assurance during the purchasing ordeal. His local property knowledge, combined with his building and renovating advice were a great benefit to us, when searching and shortlisting properties. I would never consider purchasing a property without consulting Frank first.”
“The Search, Find, Invest team were able to help me get started with my portfolio, by helping me with a plan, found me a great property, and were very helpful during the whole process.
I would recommend them to anyone wanting to get into property investment.”
“As an experienced investor, I was impressed with the knowledge and experience they had to offer. I was able to restructure my current properties and afford to purchase another, without affecting my cashflow. I wouldn’t have been able to find my new property on my own. Thank you for your help.”
“Purchasing our own home was handled professionally by Search Find Invest. Their advice on adding value was very helpful for us, as we would have probably spent more and not achieved the same improvement without their expert advice and guidance. We are very happy with the final outcome”
“We wanted to use our Super to invest safely in property, but we didn’t know where to start. We now have our own Self Managed Super Fund and have a new property, and between our rent and employers contributions, it doesn’t cost us anything from our own pocket. We were very impressed with the way everything was handled.”
“Living in NYC made it near impossible to co-ordinate a purchase in Sydney, until I got Frank on board. He was thorough when it came to answering my questions, jumped straight onto my job as soon as I signed the contract, gave me some viable options and found a diamond of a property within a week. His effort with working with the real estate agent in a timely manner, and getting the right solicitor on board, enabled me to secure my new purchase with zero stress. If you are looking for someone with an incredible knowledge base in construction and financial matters of property, go to Frank. He knows property investing from the inside out.”
“From initial consult to now, we couldn't have askedfor more from Frank. He was able to secure us the ideal property, the whole renovation was project managed in a very professional manner also. The project came in sooner than we anticipated, and right on budget. The advice on adding value was just what we needed. The property able to be rented immediately and now pays for itself. We have now created enough equity to invest again. Frank followed through with everything he said he would. We are very satisfied with the whole experience."
“We really need to thank you for introducing/recommending Sonia to us.
We had an absolutely fantastic journey with her.
She took everything under her wings and guided us with her expertise and attention to detail.
The whole buying process ended up becoming a fun & interesting exercise.
We look forward to continue our family friendly association with her.”
Sonia has great vision, backed up with a lot of know-how which really helped in looking at what each property could offer”
“As builders with over 35 years’ experience worldwide, the last 6 years has seen us focus our energies towards sourcing excellent, high quality construction projects in the Sydney inner city and eastern suburbs. The results of these projects have constantly exceeded our expectations at sale, and have resulted in defining our brand.
During this time we began our work with Sonia Jacob-Farr. She has assisted us in sourcing potential properties, purchasing, and then as a buyer’s agent after renovation works were completed. Her impeccable sense of the property market coupled with her professionalism, strong work ethic, and boundless energy has given us total trust in Sonia’s judgement, and has consistently resulted in excellent outcomes. To Sonia’s credit, we have developed a working relationship that is an absolute asset to our company ”
“For context, prior to meeting Frank we'd bought multiple properties without the help of a Buyers Agent, were generally untrusting of most people in the buying / selling process, and never thought we'd see the value in working with a Buyers Agent.
This 5 star review is simple - I will never buy another property without Frank on our team.”
“Frank was recommended to us by contacts in the Finance Industry.
We couldn't be happier with the process, pace or outcome.
Already looking to engage his services again in 2017”
“Frank is always available to be contacted, he'll find you the best property for the best price, he is very fast to seal a deal, if you decide to buy before auction.
I have no hesitation in recommending Frank to anyone who wants to buy a property without any hassle”
“I cannot recommend Frank highly enough.
He understood very quickly exactly what kind of property we were looking for and within hours had already called me about an off market house that matched just what we wanted.
He has access to properties that the public does not know about from newspapers or internet.
He was very reassuring and patient. All his sensible advice was of great help. He had a good strategy in mind for us. I am a bit anxious and he was very calming. He is always pleasant and smiling.
In the end we got our property of first choice that we never could have bought without Frank's fantastic negotiating tactics and skills. We bought before auction.
He really knows the market and what houses are worth. We also had a second backup property that he found us in case the first one fell through.
Thank you Frank. I would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone I know.
You promised to save us more than your fee and you well and truly did this”
“Frank was a wonderful support and help through my very unexpectedly short search.
His knowledge, expertise and calmness was all that I needed to secure the perfect property for me.
Go with a Buyers Agent, but even better go with Frank”
“We had a very challenging opportunity to secure a property against another bid that appeared to have been accepted.
Frank worked tirelessly like a dog with a bone over 2 days and secured it at a price I was very happy with.
I could never have done what he did. I am very glad I engaged him.
Sometimes it was hard to know who to trust, Frank came through in the end.
He was also good company”
“Frank Russo came highly recommended as someone who could assist us in buying our first home in Sydney.
We had been looking to invest in the property market for a few months without success and upon calling on Frank’s services we knew we had made the right decision.
Frank's experience and knowledge allowed the buying process to be a straightforward and exciting venture. He listened to exactly what we were looking for and was always polite, supportive and genuine. We believe he gave us that edge when negotiating and making offers.
We could not have got into the market so quickly and with such confidence without Frank’s services. Thank you so much!”
““Professional, responsive, accurate, well connected - he's fantastic to work with and has a deep knowledge of the locality.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Frank, he got me a great result in a very short time frame”
“Brilliant! Frank was exceptional in hunting down the right property for me and getting a great price, and hassle free when making an offer.
I highly recommend his services to anyone looking to buy a property”
“I didn't at first want to use a buyer's agent but my wife Viv convinced me to at least meet Frank and listen to what he said.
I was very impressed with Frank's knowledge of the market and his positive and reassuring approach to us.
I quickly developed a sense of confidence in Frank's skills and was absolutely amazed when he so quickly was able to secure for us what was by far our preferred property and at an excellent price.
Even on the day that we made the offer and he took the vendor the contract I didn't believe that he would be able to get us the property because it was so sought after but he did.
I would recommend Frank's services to any of my friends because he does a truly fantastic job without any fuss.
"Frank is really on the ball. He responded quickly to my requests, he was thorough in his research, and his advice was excellent.
His negotiating skills were outstanding. He reduced the stress of researching and buying my property enormously. I strongly recommend him."
“Throughout the whole property searching process Frank and Vittoria have been very helpful.
They saved me time and money and got me the property I like. I highly recommend their service!”
