Vendor Marketing Vendor Advocates Review

“Previously working at Fairfax myself I researched and approached Craig Knudsen from Vendor Marketing Vendor Advocates to be my Seller’s Agent. Having never sold a house before, I wanted to ensure that I was going to engage an advocate that could help me navigate the mine field of selecting a Real Estate Agent, implement an effective marketing strategy, and leverage industry experience to help negotiate the best outcome in the sale of my most valuable asset. After sitting down with Craig and he explaining his Real Estate Vendor Advocacy expertise, I felt confident that I had made the right choice. Together we interviewed 4 selling agents and Craig then analysed their submissions evaluating their Commission, Marketing Strategies, Value-add & Pricing Strategies. Ultimately with Craig’s expertise we selected the right selling agent with the right marketing strategy. Craig also worked diligently in the background rolling out his detailed Social Media campaigns to create further awareness of my impending property sale. Following our pre-auction meeting and come Auction Day there were no surprises. Everything went smoothly and ran to plan with my property selling above my expectations. Therefore if you would like full transparency in the selling process, with no nasty surprises and a stress free sale along with the best sale price I would have no hesitation in recommending Craig Knudsen from Vendor Marketing Vendor Advocates.”

In Secure Hands: Trustworthy Vendor Marketing

“Craig Knudsen (Vendor Marketing) took the stress out of (my role as one of the executors) selling three properties (Carlton, Fitzroy, Balaclava) in late 2022 / early 2023. He: Was astute in negotiations. Gained additional value on properties through strategising with Estate Agents. Demonstrated integrity in so many ways. Explained clearly at each stage of process. Was knowledgable about real estate scene. Made evidence based suggestions about estate agents, each well matched to the particular property. Provided regular detailed feedback interpreting what the data generated meant for our properties’ selling prospects. Always responded quickly to questions. Listened to suggestions executors made. Was also approachable and personable, which made everything easier. Craig was recommended by our solicitors. There could not have been a better recommendation!”

Highly recommend Craig Knudsen.

“I recently sold my father’s Glen Waverley home as he has moved into aged care. As I live in Sydney I engaged the services of Craig Knudsen of Vendor Marketing to act as my vendor advocate. I found Craig to be very approachable. He paid attention to my concerns and made sure I fully understood what the sale process involved. Craig showed he has very good knowledge of the local market and the capabilities of the local real estate agents. He also has a strong background in real estate marketing which proved invaluable with this sale. These attributes were very helpful when it came to analysing and selecting the selling proposals from a number of real estate agents. On the day of auction Craig made sure I understood proceedings and assisted in discussions with the agent and auctioneer in analysing potential bidders, setting a reserve, and auction strategies which helped release the stress and resulted in a sale price above my expectations. I highly recommend Craig Knudsen to anyone looking for a reliable and professional vendor advocate.”

We would highly recommend Craig Knudsen of Vendor Marketing

“The appointment of Craig Knudsen of Vendor Marketing was the wisest decision we made when it came to selling of our home of 45 years. From our initial meeting with Craig it was clear he was a man of honesty and integrity and had great knowledge and understanding of the real estate industry. From the beginning of the campaign until the auction Craig guided us with total professionalism. One comment we recall vividly was when he said, “Let me remove the stress from you” and he certainly did that. Everything that Craig achieved for us was managed so professionally and through a Covid lockdown period. As a result photographers were unable to enter homes, initially no open for inspections were allowed and the campaign ended with an online auction, the result of which was extremely satisfying. At no stage did Craig lose focus and he was not distracted by these obstacles, just continued doing what Craig does best, selling properties for his clients. Without hesitation we would highly recommend Craig Knudsen of Vendor Marketing.”

Great Results Through Vendor Marketing

“Craig and Vendor Marketing were recommended to us to assist with the sale of my parents’ home in 2014 and we had no hesitaion in engaging Craig’s services again when it came to selling our property. With extensive knowledge of the real estate industry, Craig was able to assist us in selecting the agent best suited to marketing and selling our home. From our initial interviews with agents through to auction day, Craig kept us informed and guided us through the whole process in a professional and friendly manner. Working together with Craig and the agent we were able to achieve a wonderful result at auction with a minimum of stress. I would highly recommend Craig to anyone considering selling their property”

The best decision we made when selling

“The best decision we made when it came to sell our home was to employ Craig Knudsen of vendormarketing. He vetted 4 Real Estate Agents and with his advice we chose the best agent in our area to deal with our home. He then did all the communications with the agent until they successfully negotiated a pleasing sale during lockdown. His attention to detail was exemplary and was always immediately available to answer questions- very professional. We cannot thank him enough for his help and friendship during this time. We recommend without hesitation Craig Knudsen as a reliable and helpful savier when it comes to real estate.”

Vendor Marketing/Craig Knudsen

“A big shout out for Craig Knudsen! Apart from being a really nice man, he knows his stuff! We had soooo much happening in our lives and needed help in selling our home. How nice it was to put your total trust in someone, who could in fact “take the reins” Craig interviewed several agents and with our approval we collectively chose the agent we thought best to sell our property. Through “lockdowns” Craig worked hard to make sure that everything possible was achieved to provide a prosperous outcome on Auction Day. Other than during the Auction, we were never stressed or worried. We knew we had 4 bidders coming to Auction and we sold our home for $140,000 over our reserve. We have no problem recommending Craig to anyone who is wanting to sell their home, his guidance and support has been commendable. Thanks Craig.”

My Surrey Hills apartment

“I engaged Craig Knudsen from Vendor Marketing to sell my apartment after he had successfully sold two previous properties of mine in Surrey Hills & Sorrento. After testing the market after Covid via an Expressions of Interest campaign and not being able to uphold my price expectations, Craig protected my interests and suggested we promptly withdraw the property from the market and wait for the right time to re-market. Phase two, Craig recommended we go to Auction and the property sold within 2 weeks of the 4 week campaign for $140,000 more than what was offered on the previous campaign. His marketing recommendations(s) were second to none. He suggested we add Chester Street, my facing Street to the front end marketing which would help eliminate the stigma of my Warrigal Road address. I just couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Craig’s agent and property marketing knowledge is second to none. His understanding of the sales process is reassuring whilst his customer service & negotiation skills are exemplary which takes a lot of the stress away and minimizes costs when selling a property.”

Even if you have doubts about spending

“Even if you have doubts about spending money to improve a property to sell, just do it! We were advised by our mother’s financial adviser to employ Craig Knudsen of Vendor Marketing, as our Vendor Advocate. It proved to be the best decision we have could have made as it made the property an attractive proposition for a wide range of prospective buyers. Craig began by vetting the real estate agents and then appointing one at a reduced commission from the accepted norm. He controlled all aspects of the advertising and acted as the go between us and the agent. He then recommended we paint and repair throughout and introduced us to the right company. They were a god send for us as they carried out the decluttering of her home, cleaned out all the unwanted items and rubbish, titivated the gardens and then carried out the introduction of furniture i.e. for display and open for inspections. The result achieved at auction was a great result for our mother, who is in care and at 96 will allow her to see out her days in comfort. Our thanks to you Craig!”

To whom it may concern

“Craig Knudsen, Principal Advisor, Vendor Marketing was personally recommended to my brother and myself by our solicitor. We had never used a Vendor’s Advocate before and, in actual fact, were not altogether familiar with what they do. We met with Craig and we were immediately impressed with him. Craig had arrived at the meeting fully prepared with all the information that we would ever require. From the moment we engaged Craig, he took care of everything. He invited three local real estate agents to provide us with a marketing campaign along with costings etc. When these submissions from the real estate agents arrived, Craig provided us with a comprehensive analysis of the submissions. When my brother and I chose the real estate agent who we wanted, we did so being fully appraised of all aspects of the sale process. From that moment on we confidently relied on Craig’s guidance, experience and support during the process of selling. The house was located in South Melbourne and my brother and I live some distance away. It would have been extremely inconvenient to have to find the time to travel there whenever something needed attending to, and as is usual in getting a house ready for auction, a lot of issues came up. Craig not only took care of everything that cropped up for us but popped in to check on the house from time to time as the house was vacant for quite a number of weeks leading up to the listing and subsequent auction. Craig organized for the locks to be changed, for cleaners, for rubbish removals etc. Everything that Craig organized was not only completed to the highest standard, but was done with such ease and efficiency. If not for Craig, we would have needed to organize all this ourselves which would have been a major inconvenience and headache due to work commitments and the distance needed to be travelled. We felt that not only was Craig looking after our interests but that he was in some ways providing a degree of protection. On auction day, Craig was instrumental in keeping two very nervous vendors from stressing out. Craig is not only a calming influence, but is very observant and he kept us abreast of the process and what was happening and what to expect. We were very grateful for his attendance on us. The house sold on the day and we were very happy with the price that it attained. Even after the sale, Craig continued to work his magic when my brother realized that he had left his sunglasses inside the house. He was already home when he noticed them missing. Craig and the Real Estate Agent were the only ones with keys to the house. My brother phoned Craig to ask what to do and to his relief Craig went around to the house, found the sunglasses and posted them out to my brother. This is just an example of the things that Craig has done for us which were very much appreciated and which made the whole process of selling so much easier. I can’t say that selling a house is ever stress-free, but when you have a competent and efficient partner who attends to the important and pressing issues, then the whole process is made that much more tolerable. We honestly do not know what we would have done without Craig’s guidance, experience, support and attention to detail during this whole process. Should my brother and I ever consider putting our current homes on the market, we would, without any hesitation at all, contact Craig and engage his services. Likewise, we would highly recommend Vendor Marketing to anyone contemplating selling their property at any stage in the future.”

As independence was paramount to me and as Craig had rightly pointed out both Property Marketing & Real Estate Agent selection to be highly important I chose to run with his services. Well appointing Craig to my Mum’s property sale turned out to be a very good move. Firstly, he introduced me to a Styling company who presented my Mum’s home in its best light. He then shortlisted 4 well-known local agents to come through and appraise my Mum’s home. He analysed their proposals, commissions and marketing strategies and documented this for me. The agent we chose he further negotiated their commission and refined their marketing strategy. From Craig’s intrinsic knowledge around both Property Marketing and knowing who the best agents are he gives your property every opportunity to achieve the best possible price! From presentation, to the right marketing and pricing strategy to selecting the right agent for the job – he does it all for you and whilst minimising the stressful process of selling a home. Furthermore he is there with you on Auction day armed with another strategy. And the proof is in the pudding! My Mum’s property sold at Auction, under the hammer and achieved the price we predicted it would, so there were no unwanted surprises. Thank-you Craig!”

Vendor Marketing got us the best result

“Our recent successful sale was our first campaign for our first home, so the plan and guidance we received from Craig and Vendor Marketing was very important to us as we really didn’t know how to proceed or to maximise our chances to get the best result. Right from the point of engaging Craig we felt we had made the right decision – he steered the whole process from choosing the right agents to the signing of the contracts. Of course this included everything in between – the open times, how to style the property, negotiating all fees with agents, advertising and marketing campaigns, plus just responding promptly to the day-to-day issues that come up. Overall the help was invaluable, and it helped us achieve a better price on sale day – this simply wouldn’t have been possible if we had decided to skimp on getting the property ready, or gone it alone. Thanks Vendor Marketing – highly recommended!”

Craig from Vendor Marketing

“Craig, from Vendor Marketing, was recommended to us as a Vendor Advocate when we were faced with the difficult task of selling our father’s home of 62 years when he was transitioned into aged care. With our limited experience in selling property and one of us living interstate it was always going to be difficult to select and work closely with a real estate agent. The sale of the property was complicated by a major decluttering exercise required and with a wealth release vendor involved. From our first meeting with Craig we were both impressed with his approach. Craig was well prepared from the outset, having done significant research which immediately made us comfortable to engage his services. As value add, Craig coordinated with our chosen declutterer and staging team to ensure the property was presented to the market in the best possible condition to attract a wide range of buyers. Craig prepared a market proposal for real estate agents to respond. From the responses, Craig presented the best three, in ranked order, using an easy to understand ‘points system’. The report to us included a brief summary of each proposal and his recommendation making our final decision much easier. From this point on Craig coordinated all facets of the sale with the real estate agent on our behalf. During the process, regular written and verbal communication from Craig ensured we were kept informed throughout. Midway through the campaign, Craig assessed the progress with us and suggested a change in strategy which immediately improved market interest. We have no doubt this was directly reflected in the incredible final price achieved. Craig is friendly, was always available, easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable across all facets of the property market. Prior to auction day Craig rehearsed the auction day process with us, covering their strategy for each of the different possible outcomes. Knowing Craig would be with us explaining any situation that arose, ensured that we were not nervous wrecks on the day. Thank you Craig for the incredible contribution you made to the sale of our father’s property and the very professional manner in which you pulled us all together. Your support and friendship will leave us with a lasting impression and we have no hesitation in recommending you and Vendor Marketing to anyone selling their home. All the best.”

“Craig, a big thank you for all of your support in preparing Ida Street for sale. Your assistance in coordinating work required to present the property for sale, identifying a suitable agent to auction the property and optimising the marketing package was greatly appreciated and saved us a lot of time and effort. Your advice regarding the auction and price setting process and during the subsequent negotiations gave us the peace of mind and took a lot of stress out of the process. Also a big thank you for the extra service you provided regarding the shelves that were inadvertently left behind when we were collecting chattels from the family home. As we both live so far away, you kindly offered to go and collect them and take them to a place where they could be collected at a convenient time.

Before working with Vendor Marketing we interviewed Real Estate agents and we were completely confused on who’s advice to go by. Vendor Marketing helped us select an agent and always worked in our interest to make the best decision for our property. It was great to have Craig’s advice and guidance throughout. He always kept us well informed and made himself available to answer any questions we had. He was always on top of our selected Real Estate Agent, as well as keeping his own marketing campaign always on track. Craig is very easy to deal with and is always professional.

“We were first introduced to Craig Knudsen from Vendor Marketing via his Free eBook – The Four Essential Steps To Selling Your Home Successfully. Although initially skeptical, the points he articulated made sense. Furthermore we hadn’t sold a home for a while and therefore weren’t 100% sure who the best agents were in our area and we certainly had no clue about property marketing. Well appointing Craig to our sale was the best thing we ever did! He shortlisted the 3 best agents in our area to come through and appraise our home. He analyzed their proposals and marketing strategies and documented this for us. He then selected one agent and further negotiated their commission. Craig also introduced a Property Stylist. We were very reluctant to spend extra money in this area however again he was right! Craig doesn’t leave any stone left unturned. He gives your property every opportunity to achieve the best price! And the proof is in the pudding! Our property sold at Auction for $621,000 – $61,000 above our dream price. We cannot speak highly enough of Craig Knudsen from Vendor Marketing. After seeing what he did and achieved for us anyone selling their property would be mad to fly blind and not engage his services.”

EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE

“I know I made the right choice to appoint Craig Knudsen of Vendor Marketing to list my late brother’s property for sale in Victoria. I became Executor of the estate however I live in New South Wales, so marketing the house myself was neither feasible nor convenient. Having a vendor’s advocate made perfect sense. I met Craig at the property and knew immediately that I had made the right decision. He handled the brief to the agents, gave me a detailed summary and analysis and then made recommendations following receipt of those agents’ proposals. The property was listed for sale early December 2023 and reached a firm sale position late February, 2024. Craig is an extremely personable, knowledgeable, honest and professional gentleman. His efforts took the worry off my shoulders and made the selling experience completely stress free. It is a 10 hour round trip for me to the property and I did not have to visit again which was of enormous benefit to me. In addition, I believe that his fee was more than covered by the sale price achieved and the hassle-free environment he created. So, money well spent. I would highly recommend Craig to anyone who wants to maximize a house sale price without the necessity of having to micro-manage a sale themselves. Thanks Craig, I couldn’t be happier.”

Many thanks, Craig

“Following a recommendation from our solicitor, we contacted Craig in November, 2022. Even though we live in a small rural community Craig was willing to travel to meet us. As he knew our timeline for relocating, he kept in touch regularly for a lengthy period until our home was to go on the market. Craig led us through the process of interviewing and ultimately selecting an estate agent. He then liaised frequently with the agent, often 2 to 3 times a week, and provided us with feedback and explanations of all the various situations and legalities. His input regarding changes to advertising, price variations, etc was invaluable, making the 15 weeks on the market much less stressful. Thank you, Craig. You made us feel more like friends than simply clients.”

“We cannot praise the work of Craig Knudsen more highly in his role as our Vendor Agent. Craig was able to steer us through the whole process of selling our late father’s house with clear and timely guidance during a period when health restrictions made the selling of the property much more challenging than normal. Craig’s knowledge of the whole real estate process, and very importantly the local market, allowed him to skillfully prepare a forensic analysis of the best estate agent to market our property. Craig provided up-to- date advice through the selling campaign. He worked closely with Home Moving Planners to tidy, make repairs and style the property for sale. Craig was careful in working with our solicitor and the real estate agent to ensure key deadlines were met. Craig’s communication style is very open. He demonstrated through the whole selling campaign that he was an excellent listener to our questions or any concerns we may have had. He always responded in a very timely manner to our queries. Most importantly Craig was able to secure a fantastic result on the property’s sale. Craig really took the worry out of the sale process with his complete understanding of all aspects of selling a property efficiently and effectively. Craig made sure that as vendors we got the best marketing campaign and price for the property. Dr Peter Bergin and Dr Anthony Bergin.”

Communication is critical and Craig is super responsive, regardless of the time or day. This helped to ease our mind whenever a concern arose.

“I am pleased to highly recommend Mr Craig Knudsen of Vendor Marketing for his professional approach in his position as our recent sellers advocate. Having no knowledge of this role and being fairly ignorant of the Melbourne property scene, I wondered why the need for such a person. I rang Craig to set up an appointment and was pleasantly surprised that he was happy to travel to Ballarat to meet with me and to outline his services. I was impressed with his selling strategies and experience in the industry. His presentation was easy to understand and he proved to be a good listener. When I realised the extent of the assistance he provided I was keen to work with him. We set up an excellent email system between all parties involved which made for very effective communication between myself and the Melbourne parties. Craig was extremely thorough in the Agent selection process providing detailed comparison data. I was given weekly buyer inspection data from the Agents and Craig directed operations at Halley Avenue to get the property sell-able. This included his recommendations for stylists, cleaners and even tree lopping. Craig set a cracking pace to ensure the property was listed prior to Grand Final weekend. It is clear now that this decision was enormous as the Melbourne market has softened considerably since that date. Auction clearance rates are currently down 10 percent in the past month. On the day of the auction Craig was fantastic. He supported his Vendors totally and was a calming influence as the property was passed in. He then spent several hours fighting for the best possible price with the Agents forcing the price up by another $40,000 dollars. I am in no doubt that our property in Camberwell would still be on the market today at a heavily reduced price, if not for the knowledge, skills and professionalism of Craig and Vendor Marketing. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company to any prospective clients.”

He drew on his extensive experience to negotiate the best marketing and sale plan through his rigorous process of choosing the best real estate agent for the property sale. We highly recommend Vendor Marketing for providing a trouble-free and expertly-informed path to achieving the best possible outcome in selling a property.”

Being my first time to put a property on the market, I was particularly concerned about choosing the right agent for the job, getting a realistic and an honest selling point, and a correct marketing strategy. Craig was absolutely amazing. Not only did he bring three top estate agents to choose from, but he tailored my choice of agents marketing strategy to my situation. From sign up to sale, Craig liaised with the agent at every point, making the whole process easy and stress free. I was able to continue working and living as usual, without any distractions. Come auction day, my property was passed in. Craig’s honed negotiation skills got me a sold result of nearly 10% above my reserve. I was astonished. I most certainly will be using Craig again on a future real estate sale, and have utmost confidence in recommending him to others.”

“Craig Knudsen, Vendor Marketing, came highly recommended by my accountant. I am happy to report that it was an excellent recommendation and I am a very satisfied customer. As the executor of a deceased estate, I was acutely aware of my responsibility to the beneficiaries to achieve the best possible price for the property being sold and Craig was instrumental in helping me to achieve this. Craig selected three agents who pitched for the job, assessed what each was offering, and then nominated which of the agents he thought was the better choice. His knowledge regarding the local agents, his ability to negotiate reduced commission, and his experience generally in the property market was a great asset. He also recommended an excellent home stylist who brought with her a painter and a gardener. For a small investment they transformed the property. At all times Craig was prompt, courteous, reliable and thoroughly professional. He reported back on how many parties attended each open for inspection; he liaised with the agent and kept me informed with regular reports; and he conducted an excellent social media campaign. He was there with us on the day of the auction to advise and support….and to celebrate! The auction result was outstanding. The house sold for approximately $350,000 more than we had been expecting, in no small measure thanks to Craig’s expertise and his commitment to providing exemplary customer service. I couldn’t recommend Craig Knudsen and Vendor Marketing more highly.”

“After a failed auction campaign my son & I thought we’d make contact with Vendor Marketing. I only wish we contacted Craig first time round. Not only did he reach out to the incumbent agent and another two agents to compete in his qualified pitch/tender process he also analysed exactly what each agent was bringing to the table. From their valuations, commission, to their marketing strategy and even their value-add each were prepared to contribute. After listening to Craig’s recommendation we placed our trust in his hands and of course everything went to plan. From a failed auction campaign to our property selling two weeks prior to auction for a sale price that was approximately $20,000 above what we could realistically expect to achieve was an amazing outcome! Furthermore, Craig even recommended a property stylist to get our home professionally presented for sale. Most importantly, he was there for us every step of the way. With his sole aim focussed around both transparency and delivering you the very best outcome I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Craig Knudsen from Vendor Marketing to anyone looking to sell a property.”
