The right vendor advocate can greatly improve your sale outcome. But with so many services out there, how do you choose the right one? Vendor Marketing, Melbourne’s most qualified vendor advocates is the only vendor advocacy firm with BOTH property marketing & real estate agent selection expertise. This is vitally important because these are the 2 KEY areas when selling a property. We are also one of the very few Melbourne vendor advocates that provides all our clients a genuine independent fixed fee remuneration structure that is proven to be cost neutral upon successful sale. The vendor advocacy firms you hear on the radio or in the media say their services are free! But the reality is there’s no such thing! Frequently operated by retired or unsuccessful real estate agents, these firms share in 50% of the selling agent’s commission so you end up paying more for outdated and unqualified advice! These vendor advocacy firms have no incentive to negotiate the agent’s commission as they’re aligned only with agents who agree to their terms rather than select the best agent for the job. Vendor Marketing Vendor Advocates is completely independent. We’re not aligned with any real estate agent or buyer. Our vendor advocacy services are designed to only represent you, the vendor ...Learn more

Selecting the best real estate agent to sell your property can feel like a gamble. But our independent, qualified tender process eliminates the guesswork. We always recommend, negotiate and match you with the best real estate agent. Choosing a real estate agent to sell your property is not just about who’s local, or who has the biggest brand, it’s about finding the best agent for the job. We’ve spent many years building relationships with both directors and senior real estate agents right across Melbourne. Put simply, we know who the best real estate agents are! We demystify the industry jargon and help you make this most important decision using your head, rather than your heart, making the real estate agent selection process much easier. We hand select and then invite the 3 or 4 best real estate agents in your local area to conduct an appraisal at your property. At each separate appraisal, we provide them our detailed 12 point brief. In return they email their proposal answering each point. Each agent proposal is also forwarded onto our clients to uphold full transparency. Vendor Marketing then accesses and summarises all proposals in line with our strict evaluation criteria. We then finalise our negotiations before providing our final recommendation of the best real estate agent for you and your property ...Learn more
My experience with Vendor Marketing
“I hired Craig Knudsen from Vendor Marketing, to be my vendor advocate, as I didn’t have any experience in selling a house. I am very glad that I did, he made the whole process worry free. He helped me to get the right selling agent and ultimately a very good price for my house. I found Craig to be easy to talk to, honest and reliable, he was always available if I had a problem. I would be very happy to recommend Craig from Vendor Marketing Vendor Advocates to anyone.”
The expertise is invaluable
“The expertise, experience and advice provided by Craig Knudsen of Vendor Marketing was exceptional. As exector of my late parent’s estate there were some complex legal and family dispute issues which involved a legal deed which needed to carefully adhered to. Craig worked skillfully with solicitors, conveyancers, real estate agents and all parties to ensure the process and terms of the deed were adhered to and achieved. He is a highly skilled and professional advocate. He is also a gentlemen and a pleasure to deal with. I could not recommed Craig and Vendor Marketing more highly. He ensured my journey through the selling process was that much easier. I will definetely use Craig again and recommend him and Vendor Marketing to all my friends and family. Thanks Craig, you really are a star.”
We engaged Craig on a friends
“We engaged Craig on a friends recommendation. The daunting task ahead in selling our home required the skills that Craig was able to offer us with his experience in real estate.
