Meet Dan Sofo — Your Trusted Property Buyer's Agent in Sydney

Sydney is one of the world’s most desirable places to live and invest so it’s no surprise that our property market is highly competitive and challenging to navigate.

Often the best properties available to purchase aren’t advertised, and those that do appear on the market are sold by industry experts who know how to extract the highest price from inexperienced buyers.

We live in an age where safety and performance are paramount. You’re about to make one of the most important purchases of your life. Let me help you find what you love, get more than you pay for, and secure the future value and enjoyment of your property for many years to come.

For me, every client purchase feels personal. I’ve been through the pain a Sydney buyer experiences too many times and that inspired a profession where I can give other buyers access to an industry insider’s search capacity and negotiating power and ultimately a superior advantage.

As a boutique agency comprised of myself and two assistants, we can only work with a limited number of clients at any one time. Unlike the big agencies you can expect absolute focus on your brief. The three of us will work tirelessly until

Search

Agent outreach, RPdata research, community connections, and a healthy dose of good old fashioned letterbox drops and door knocking are all in a day’s work to find your property.

Research

Calls to strata, chats with the neighbours, DA checks at council, flood maps, aircraft noise, easements, encumbrances..every detail is checked and all of the facts are presented to you so you can make an informed decision.

Purchase

I engage with selling agents and private owners every day, so I know exactly what it takes to secure your property at terms favourable to you, and at the lowest possible price. That may be via private treaty, in a pre auction negotiation, or on auction day.

What Is Happening With Sydney Property Right Now?

Buying in Sydney has never been easy. Unfortunately, conditions for many buyers in 2021 are only getting worse. Sydney on-market house property listings in Jan 2021 were back to 2015 levels yet our population has increased by 1.2M and property values are up 56% over that same period. There are more buyers than quality available properties and it’s largely a seller’s market which puts further upwards pressure on prices, even for properties that are less than ideal.

How Can I Help You?

If you’re hunting for your forever home, a clever investment, or a development site, saving you time is just the beginning. My market knowledge and selling agent connections enable me to qualify every property meaning you’re only shown the very best and most suitable options that meet your brief. I’ll present you with opportunities you can’t see, including off-market properties. Shortlisted candidates are thoroughly researched so you can purchase with confidence, knowing the price I negotiate for you is at or below market value and that your property will perform as expected.

My partner and I have nothing but praise for Dan and his agency in buying our first home! Dan was able to help us focus on searching for the right property, and kept us positive, motivated, and realistic. Crucially, he inspected, appraised, and negotiated on our behalf once we found the place we wanted. Last but not least, Dan's a wonderful bloke, a pleasure to work with, and not afraid to have a laugh or crack a joke. If you're looking for some sanity in the chaos of the Sydney property market, look no further than Dan.

Dan's service was second to none. All of the of concerns and worries of buying a home disappeared as soon as we signed up to his services. He made this whole process a pleasure, and we now have our dream family home in Bondi. Whether it was talking us through the legal quagmire involved when buying a home, or getting feedback from surveyors and builders, Dan was fair, honest and worked day or night when it was needed. He took care of all the negotiations from conveyancing, real estate agents and builders. He added a calm level head, when all around were piling on the pressure, he was never rattled and always charming. He's exactly who you need on your side when you go into the Eastern suburbs real estate jungle. The money and time he saved was priceless.

Dan was incredibly patient with us as first home buyers, and helped us above and beyond the search/negotiation. He is incredibly knowledgable about the market, and provided really insightful advice at the begining and throughout our search. Dan has built strong relationships in the industry, which is a definitely a positive when trying to navigate through the smoke and mirrors of Sydney real estate. We ended up with our dream home, and cannot wait to move in! Could not recommend highly enough - thanks Dan!

I was completely new to the world of property when I found Unicorn Buyers Agents. This was my first home and I honestly didn’t expect it to be so stressful. Connecting with Daniel Sofo meant having someone fight for the buyer (me), someone to explain the ins and outs, someone I could trust who I knew was fighting for my best interests. Daniel helped me and my husband wade through the mountains of properties and ridiculous mind games with real estate agents to find a home which was below budget and above expectations. He handled negotiations with the agents, advised whether properties were at true value and lead the final bidding process - which we won. I was initially hesitant to commit to the fee of a buyers agent, until I realised that the money I saved actually buying the property far exceeded the cost of his services. It was a net positive and we are so grateful for all the help we received. I recommend Dan highly and will go with him again when we’re back in the market for our next property.

What is the difference between a buyers’ agent and real estate agent?

It’s important to realize that a real estate agent is hired and paid by the seller of a property to get the highest possible price and most favorable terms for them. A real estate agent ultimately acts in the seller’s best interest, not yours. At Unicorn Buyer’s Agents, I work exclusively for you, the buyer. I am a Property Buyer’s Agent, paid solely by you to find the property you love and to negotiate the price and terms in your best interest.
