Buyers Service

Our Team

Brendan Jack - Director

Brendan is the most highly industry-qualified and longest serving Buyer’s Agent in Sydney. His communication and negotiating skills and unique ability to clinch a property purchase are recognised by his peers as nothing short of exceptional. Indeed, such is his standing in the world of Sydney Buyer’s Agents that the Real Estate Institute of NSW (REINSW) appointed him to lecture on their Buyer’s Agency Training Courses. The Department of Fair Trading further confirmed Brendan’s expertise by inviting him to assist in the revision of the Property, Stock and Business Agents Act to include Buyers Agents.

Brendan’s property career commenced shortly after leaving school in 1965, when he joined his family’s real estate business in Sydney’s western suburbs. Six years later he purchased his own real estate agency in the Sutherland Shire, developing it into one of the most successful independent agencies in Australia. That same year, 1970, he established a Valuation practice on Sydney’s North Shore.

Never one to sit still for too long, within a few short years Brendan:
     ⦁ had qualified as an Associate and then Fellow of the Real Estate and Stock Institute of Australia;
     ⦁ gained admission as an Associate to the Australian Property Institute; and
     ⦁ was elected Chairman of the Cronulla/Sutherland Division of the REINSW—a position he held for three years.

After completing university courses in the fields of valuation, real estate and financial management, Brendan undertook study trips to the UK and USA to immerse himself in Real Estate global best practice. Finally, in the prime of his career, Brendan made a decision to do what no-one else had ever done before—at least, no-one in Sydney. He specialised as a buyer’s agent.

When Buyer’s Service for Real Estate opened its doors in 1993, few in Sydney had ever heard of a buyer’s agent. If the landscape has changed since then—and it has—it is in no small way due to the efforts and achievements of Brendan and his team.

Meanwhile, though Buyer’s Service for Real Estate is no longer Sydney’s only buyer’s agency, there is no doubt that it remains the first— first in NSW; first for experience; first for quality and integrity of service; first for finding and securing the property that means more to you than mere bricks and mortar.

On a scale of one to ten, a perfect ten.
“For busy people with no real understanding of the complexities of the market or the opportunities, your support was invaluable.

Our first property purchase through BSRE was achieved with no difficulties and at a great price due to your reseach and auction bidding skills. Most recently, your organising the sale of two properties for us and the purchase of another was achieved with great professionalism and sympathetic handling. Your investigation of just the right agent in Sydney for one property and your extensive work in finding a winning agent for us in a regional location was outstanding and made all the difference to the outcome.”

Anne Jack - Director

Anne’s 45 years in Real Estate covers sales, valuation and property management. Complementing this wealth of client-focused, frontline experience is her array of management and organisational skills. Together, Anne and Brendan formed a unique working partnership.

Following the sale of their real estate business, Anne moved into consultancy and worked with Expat International, where her role was to settle international and interstate clients into rental properties in metropolitan Sydney.

With the launch of Buyer’s Service for Real Estate in 1993, Anne’s ability to read a client’s property wish-list, understand their motivations and prioritise their needs quickly became a valuable asset to the business. Indeed, many of her clients and real estate colleagues confirm that working with Anne is always a rewarding experience.

The icing on the cake.
“As we live overseas, the task of searching for an investment property that ticked all the boxes was a challenge, but Anne and Brendan made it seem easy. They were always punctual and good humoured, and raced us round Sydney to see a wide range of properties in a short space of time. Anne’s excellent knowledge isn’t confined to the real estate market, but also includes the location of the best coffee shops, which made it an entertaining and sustaining experience. As for Brendan, you can feel the quiver when he enters an auction room, because this man means business. We would definitely use Buyer’s Service for Real Estate again, just as long as Anne can keep coming up with those five-star coffees.”
