Trusted advice

Some home-buying service providers have a hidden agenda, where your needs aren’t necessarily theirs. Not us. We’re openly dedicated to delivering the right outcomes for you, and providing tailored advice that best suits your needs. We’ll leverage our experience, our networks, and current market knowledge to ensure appropriate guidance is given. We’re not trying to tick other boxes or meet conflicting KPIs. You’re our priority.

Research and negotiation

Looking for a home but don’t know where to start? Look no further. Tell us your goals and we’ll do the rest. From researching the local market to collating a personalised buying strategy for you. You won’t even need to face the agents. Our strong relationship with sellers keeps us strong at negotiation. Even when it’s not about price, we’ve learnt the moves to out-manoeuvre your competition


Auctions can be scary, especially for the first home buyer. Don’t risk making a mistake; don’t take on the unnecessary stress and emotion. Leave it to us. We have the strategy to bid well, and the emotional ability to remain cool, calm, and collected. You can just stay focussed on the celebrations.

Ben just helped us find our first home just a few weeks after enlisting him with the task. He is extremely communicative, professional and very thorough. I didn’t know what to expect from a Buyers Advocate (he was recommended to us from friends) and I was blown away by how hard he worked. I never knew buying a home was this smooth and stress-free.

When it comes to taking the drama out of buying Ben Mitchell gets straight to the point. His communication style is assuring, confident, honest and empathetic. If you are looking to buy or even worse, sick of looking, then You Key Advocate is one of the most worthwhile partnerships to have.

Ben took a lot of the legwork, worry and stress out of the process for me. He has fantastic knowledge of the areas I wanted to buy and of the end to end process. Ben has in his toolkit a great network of brokers, architects, conveyancers and tradespeople to use throughout the process, so he's really a one-stop-shop which made everything so easy.

Highly recommend Ben!! He helped us find the perfect first home, and made the process incredibly easy to understand. He walked us through the entire process, helped us find the perfect place, and put all our concerns and questions at ease with his in-depth knowledge and expertise!

Buying a home is an emotional and costly endeavour, but we can say without a doubt, engaging Ben was the best investment we ever made! Ben developed a strategy, guided us through a complicated transaction and made sure we secured a great home, without overpaying. We have now moved in and love our home. It is without hesitation that we recommend Ben.

Ben was amazing!! He was very confident and once briefed knew exactly what we were searching for! We found a new place to call home within 3 weeks of hiring him. Highly recommend 5/5!! Thanks, Ben!

Ben helped my wife and I buy our first home. He handheld us through the property journey. Ben took the stress out of negotiating and helped us evaulate the true values of the properties we were inspecting against our personal requirements.

We are very grateful to Ben Mitchell and Your Key Advocacy for all the incredible support and advice we have received over the time leading up to us buying our first home (it all happened so fast - we still can't believe that it's done!). Ben is efficient, proactive, very knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. From our first interaction, we knew we were in good hands. Ben definitely went above and beyond! Highly recommended.

We were very apprehensive about buying a property because it's so much money and we had little knowledge about the housing market. Ben at Your Key Advocacy did all the work for us whilst providing in-depth knowledge of the housing market so we felt completely informed and comfortable when making decisions. Ben secured us our dream property at a reasonable price, whilst making it a stress-free and actually enjoyable experience for us. I cannot recommend Your Key Advocacy enough!

Ben is an amazing advocate! He gave me great advice on my overall budgeting, insight into property value. Always available and approachable. Super patient even though I was being unsure about what I wanted most of time. Most importantly, he did a great job on auction day. Thank you soooo much Ben!
