"We recently engaged Dan at Unicorn Buyers Agents to find, negotiate and ultimately purchase our first home. After our initial meeting, Dan understood the position we were in and what we were after. He was regularly in contact providing updates on properties he had viewed on our behalf and within a month we had purchased our first home. His knowledge of the industry is incredible as is his ability to negotiate. Without Dan we would have paid significantly more for our home. We will definitely be using Dan and Unicorn Buyers Agents if we are ever in the market again."

"Armed with Dan’s expertise in the field and market I had the confidence to pursue the property, someone to guide me through the legal maze and ensure that the property and conditions of sale were fair. But perhaps, most importantly, an assurance that the long term prospects and potential for improvement of the property would continue to increase in value. I’ll be seeing the New Year in from my top floor balcony, looking out across the city skyline and toasting to Dan who secured me my dream first home! I’ll be grateful for the next 30 years!!"
"We engaged Dan through a recommendation from a friend to bid at a critical auction for us as we were nearing the end of our pre-approval period and risking a significant reduction in borrowing capacity. In our particular case, we were lucky that the bidding was focused around our level of affordability but I am confident that Dan's approach kept the bids as low as possible while securing us our property. He was extremely thorough in his research to support the process - both in deciding to take on the job and to inform our expectations so we can set bidding limits that we were comfortable represented the true value of the property to us. We've been in our new family home for a week now and couldn't be happier to be here, for the price we paid. Thank you Dan for helping to make it happen!"
