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 through property investment or their dream of owning their very own home.
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 on the buyers side. For Home Buyers they are up against a vendor and their highly paid and trained selling agent who is an expert negotiator. For Investors, they are constantly 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 Property Advisors and 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.

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.
