ABOUT PMC Property Buyers
Property is tangible, whether you are an investor, owner occupier, aspiring investor or a tenant, we can all relate to it. In Australia, property is part of our psyche and at PMC Property Buyers it is our passion to assist our clients achieve their financial goals or dreams through property investment or with their dream of owning their very own piece of Australia.
PMC was founded by James and Will after working for a number of years in the industry witnessing so many people being taken advantage of and being spruiked to; off the plan units, house and land packages in remote areas, mining town properties with high yields or being convinced to buy in their SMSF when they didn’t really have the capacity to do so. There was and remains a very real need for independent, uncompromised advice for home buyers and investors. PMC hope that our Buyers Agents can go a long way to filling that need for our clients.
Our passion is property, but even more so, to see clients who want to purchase property go into the transaction with open eyes, an understanding of the process and have someone assist them to ensure the best possible outcome that meets their unique goals. Our team is dedicated to provide you with a unique experience of exceptional customer service and property results, operating with the honesty and integrity that the property industry requires, yet often lacks.

In 2007 James began working as a buyers advocate and has acquired over $100 million of residential and commercial property on behalf of clients in Brisbane, Toowoomba and surrounding areas.

Through his personal property investment experience and extensive study, Will’s passion for property grew and in 2009 he formally entered the Property Industry as a Property Advisor and Buyers Advocate. Since this date he has continued to expand his intimate knowledge of the inner Sydney and Newcastle property markets whilst growing a very loyal client base.
His desire to “walk the talk” and build his own property portfolio has opened his eyes to how easily people can be taken advantage of when investing their own money in the property market. This has fuelled Will’s passion to lift the integrity and standards of the advice received within the Buyers Advocacy and Property Advisory industry. This has lead Will to further his studies and complete a Diploma of Financial Planning which further enhances his skill sets to understand clients specific goals and overall wealth creation strategies when it comes to building a property portfolio.
Since starting in the Buyers Advocate industry in 2009, Will has been a Client Relationship Manager, Buyers Advocate and most recently, NSW State Manager, establishing and growing in conjunction with James Freudigmann, a Buyers Advocate division for a National valuation company before deciding to form PMC Property Consultants.
