Beyond buyer agent and buyer advocate
Your Melbourne property investment adviser
With 15 years in the property industry – across valuations and
investment advisory – Jarrod has shaped a skillset that delivers for clients. His background in valuations underpins a keen sense of what makes a good investment. And combined with a tremendous depth of contemporary knowledge about the Melbourne inner suburban market, Jarrod brings a confidence-born-of-experience to negotiations that makes him especially effective in these high-pressured moments.
Jarrod also values the importance of ‘people’ skills, and makes it a priority to genuinely listen and really understand clients’ needs whilst, in his role as property team manager, mentoring and developing his colleagues.
Jarrod developed an interest in property from a young age, ever since he completed work-experience for a family friend’s real estate company in high school. Studying a Bachelor of Business (Property) at university, he completed his studies in late 2000 before putting his skills to use as a property valuer. In mid-2005 he moved to Melbourne to work at a large multi-national agency, preparing property valuations principally with a commercial focus. This role clarified that his greater passion was for residential property, which led him to an inner-city residential valuation role in early 2007. Jarrod commenced with Wakelin Property Advisory in 2010, where he took up the role as manager of the property advisory team. In 2011 he became an Associate Director of the company. Jarrod is an active property investment educator delivering webinars and seminars, and he also contributes frequently to various media sources.
The staff of Wakelin Property Advisory have, between them, a diverse range of professional experience including property valuations, property management, numerous real estate transactions and negotiation, finance and communications. The great success and longevity of the firm over the last 20 years is built on effectively harnessing these complementary skills whilst instilling a belief in and passion for Wakelin Property Advisory’s uncompromising asset selection philosophy.
