Beyond buyer agent and buyer advocate
Your Melbourne property investment adviser
Paul’s earliest lesson in property was that asset selection should be the primary goal,
as it doesn’t matter how well you negotiate a price, if it’s the wrong asset it’s a backward step. Paul is unapologetic in expecting the Wakelin Property Advisory team to undertake a robust due diligence on every property they assess and to always be careful in the selection process. He also actively mentors the team on the art of negotiation, sharing the experience of a broad and rich property vocation.
Paul’s career began in urban and town planning in 1985. From there he worked for a building company before becoming a property consultant in the late 1980s. He spent many years in real estate roles before coming to Wakelin Property Advisory in 1999. His 30-year career has seen him work across many different areas where he has gathered a breadth of knowledge of the real estate industry uncommon to most property practitioners.Becoming a director in 2002, Paul’s management and strategic skills have been a significant factor in the company’s evolution from young start-up to industry leader. He has appeared in many media outlets such as the ABC TV’s The Business and ABC’s Melbourne 774 radio program, and is regularly approached by media outlets such as The Age, Property Observer and The Australian Property Investor, as he has an almost unrivalled understanding of market trends.
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.
