We often expect that a Real Estate Agent will look after both the buyer and the seller and this is true up to a point, especially if you’re lucky enough to find a good one.
See, the Selling Agent’s job is to sell the property for the most money in the shortest time possible. They will communicate with you and help as much as they can, but they’re paid by the seller (or vendor) so should be putting their priorities above yours.
What this means for the buyer is that you technically have nobody on your side. Nobody to help you negotiate, to understand the terms and to buy under the best conditions.
Yes you do. You have ME. Your Southern Highlands Buyers Agent, Tonia Krebs.
When you don’t know where to start and you know you want to get into property but aren’t even sure which style of investment might suit you, let’s talk. When you don’t want to have to deal with dodgy agents and spend your precious weekends going from open house to open house, then don’t! Leave it to me. When you don’t know what you don’t know, so have no idea what makes a good investment and what doesn’t, don’t ask the agent SELLING you the property. Ask someone totally independent, who has no conflict of interest in the property and ask me, your totally 100% independent Buyers Agent. When you think you’ve found an ideal property and are making a good decision, but would love a neutral second opinion, I’ll give you my professional opinion, in a comprehensive report showing you what matters and what doesn’t, when it comes to buying the RIGHT property in the RIGHT place at the RIGHT price.
My area of expertise as a Buyers Agent is in the Southern Highlands of NSW and surrounds. I generally cover the area from Campbelltown in the south west of Sydney, down to Young in the west and Queanbeyan, as well as the Illawarra and South Coast and all areas in between. If you’re not sure, just ask me and if I can’t help you, I’ll put you in touch with a buyers agent who can.
Having started my Real Estate career as a Property Manager, 20 years ago, I know what makes a great investment. It's often much simpler than you think!
I can handle every tiny detail for you, or you can pick and choose from my services to create a custom package that suits your goals, your lifestyle and your budget.
Dealing with property isn't always black and white, so often there are surprises we can't anticipate. I guarantee to keep you up to date and informed and 100% involved in the decision making process.
Identify and research suitable areas
Search for properties
Research properties and advise suitability
Organise pest and building inspections
Liaise with conveyancer
Attend pre-settlement inspection
In some cases I could inspect 10-20 properties before recommending one which I believe meets your needs, or other times I can find the right one for you, almost immediately, using my invaluable agent only software and preferred agent contacts to find properties which haven’t quite made it on the market yet. I have strong relationships with many agents in my broad area and will do whatever it takes to make your buying experience as stress free as possible.
It all comes down to communication. I will be sure to understand your current position and needs, communicate my progress and educate you about my research and findings. I will update you using your preferred method of contact and be available to support you through the decision making process.
I can customise a package to suit your needs, your experience and your budget and am proud to say that I generally save my clients a lot more money than I charge as my fee!
Ask me to design the perfect Buyers Agent package for YOU. Full Service Packages start from $5,000. Single Property Reports from $500.
I can help you from start to finish so you don’t have to think about the whole, involved process or perhaps you just want my independent opinion on a proposed purchase. Whichever option you choose, I’m here to protect you from dodgy agents, from schemes which are usually too good to be true and from dreams which might never match reality.

Utilising Tonia as a Buyers Agent is the best property related decision I have made to date. Having procrastinated for 18months, Tonia guided me through a thorough process which resulted in the perfect purchase within 3 weeks. Tonia’s professionalism and years of experience in dealing with Real Estate Agents was invaluable and I recommend her highly.
As first home buyers my husband and I have been extremely grateful for Tonia’s professional assistance. We consider ourselves to have some knowledge on property investing however as a young couple we really wanted support to make our first big investment. We would recommend Tonia to anyone who is seeking expert support on purchasing a home or investment property. What we most valued about Tonia was her authenticity and knowledge. At no point did it feel as though it was purely a business deal, rather we felt incredibly supported and looked after. Tonia spent a lot of time with us prior to and after writing our property report and really made a huge effort to be there for us throughout the whole process. This assisted us to feel comfortable and reduce our anxiety around making such a big purchase. -Meg and Nathan
Hi Tonia,I just wanted to say thank you for all your assistance in investigating and providing information on property investment opportunities. Being a very busy woman it makes it difficult to take out time to talk to Councils to obtain background info such as zonings, dual occupancy requirements and land/building constraints. It is great having you there on the end of the phone, available to call to do the running around. Thanks!
Hi Tonia, thanks to you in less then 30 days I will have the keys to my first investment property, wow can't believe how easy it is, will be looking to get another in 6 months, this is so much fun and there is nothing to have to do to the place and a tenant is ready to move in. I feel like it couldn't be better, very happy thank you so very much. I don't think I would have even considered going ahead and buying property if I hadn't come across you. I feel on top of the world right now. Catch up again soon. Thank you. You take care, Raewynne xo
