I have been a repeat customer of Justin for 4 years. I was searching for a Buyer’s agent in Brisbane, and found many of them do not show concrete evidence of their work. Justin was the only one showing what deal he has been able to secure alongside its number. Justin understands what makes great investment, not just from the numbers perspective but also from the potential, the risk/pitfalls and how to add value. I am a very inquisitive person and did ask a lot of questions to him throughout the purchase process. He answered each of my questions in great detail, giving assistance on every aspect of the purchase. He is the kind of person that would go above and beyond to help his customer. I am very happy with all of my purchases, they all have been doing well, and would highly recommend Justin to my friends and family.

I can highly recommend Justin and Investigate Property. We have several investment properties in Brisbane, however living interstate we don’t have the time to source and research potential investment opportunities.

Justin uses his extensive knowledge of the Brisbane property market together with his skills in analysing town planning, to evaluate development potential options.

Justin has negotiated well on our behalf for price and contract conditions. We look forward to continuing to find more hidden gems with Justin in the future.

Justin Eslick represents a refreshing change in the real estate industry with an entirely customer centric approach. Investigate Property provide access to property deals that are unobtainable through standard channels and due diligence that is comprehensive and extremely accurate. Justin has assisted me on multiple projects now and has always represented the values of honesty and integrity in every situation.

We are small developers - working in full time jobs in Sydney, and are currently using Justin again to do our second Brisbane development. Justin finds and identifies development opportunities, investigates them, and works through the options to present projects through a range of strategies. He does the research, and presents a realistic feasibility with conservative end values, using his in-depth understanding of BCC town planning expectations, design skills and understanding of property values and markets. This significantly reduces the risk and timeframes for us in each project. Although we have completed small developments previously in Sydney we had unexpected problems (which you will have in every development) in our first development in Brisbane thanks to changing rules within council. Justin worked well beyond the scope of his commitment to enable us to successfully finalise our project. He is responsive and a good communicator. Justin has shared his range of contacts and networks which has enabled us to put together a good team to take into our second Brisbane project. Access to Justin's website (through the Investigate Property membership) has allowed us to develop our feasibility skills and shift our strategy and find the right sized project for us. For these reasons we elected to do our next project in Brisbane – using Justin. We strongly recommend Justin's professional service.

Justin has been an integral part of my property investment strategy. 

His knowledge, support and ability to find deals that stack up and work, is second to none. He is an absolute professional who knows Brisbane like the back of his hand. When you engage Justin you are in safe hands and it gives you peace of my mind that you have one of the best in the business on your team. 

I have no hesitation in recommending Justin, as without him I wouldn't have the cashflow investment properties I do today.

On many occasions Justin Eslick has on our behalf, sourced and assisted us with strategies to undertake many successful property projects.

Justin’s vast knowledge, experience, industry contacts and his ability to see each project’s full potential is truly an asset to us.

Justin’s close relationships with well considered architects, town planners and engineers alike has been extremely beneficial, in being able to make swift and more precise decisions to maximise strategies and avoid hurdles whilst properties are under contract and still in the due diligence period.

The investigations that are undertaken by Justin always give a clear indication of the proposed purchase amount, costs involved, risks and end profit expectations, that so far have been conservative on all our completed projects.

We engage Justin’s service and knowledge on a regular basis and have always found him to be honest, trustworthy, reliable and extremely beneficial to our success on our property investment journey.

It is without hesitation that we recommend Justin and Investigate Property to anyone considering expanding their property portfolio.

Over the years we have purchased several properties through Investigate Property and have always been impressed at how much knowledge they bring to the table, and how much value they create for us. Of huge benefit has been their advice throughout and access to other professionals to help assess the development options whether it was a high density site, subdivision or renovation. These new assets have allowed us to reach our goals and we have been recommending their services to all our family and friends.

I've know Justin Eslick for at least a decade now, and bought three properties from Investigate Property over that time. All have performed as advertised, and having Justin guide me into the specifics of my first development deal was a major part in its success. Buying through IP has also helped me develop confidence to do deals on my own, which I see as a major benefit.

We are an established developer and have bought two development sites through Justin. Justin has integrity, is great with communication, and has a passion for property that is evident when dealing with him. Justin always strives to get the best value for us when negotiating - such a critical part of buying a development site.

Justin will form a valuable asset within your development team. We can recommend him and will continue to use him in the future.

I just wanted to write thank for you for your services over the past 3 purchases. The Alderley property was my third purchase using your services and like all the others, has been very profitable. You regularly seem to be able to sniff out sites that have a nice twist. I'm always impressed with your knowledge and the depth of detail you go into when researching possible yields for each site. This doesn't just keep life interesting, it adds profits to my bottom line. I haven't used another buyer's agent who goes as deep and gets as involved in all the nitty gritty of the feasibility as you do. From design and planning issues to build and exit prices you really go deep. When you present me a deal I know you have already done more research than most. Then if we contract I know you'll still be there to help me go even deeper and mitigate all the risks we can. I have enjoyed the process of working with you and I've really enjoyed the end results :) I really look forward to doing the next deal.

Justin is by far the best buyer’s agent we have worked with. He is very detail-oriented and was providing advice at different stages of our project, including advising our consultants. When working with him, you won't be just paying for a buyers' agent service, he can be a mentor for you as well. We are very happy to find Justin and will be happy to buy through him in the future.

I engaged Justin around Aug 2018 for development sites in Brisbane. I have since secured a site through him in Clayfield late 2018. The whole experience has given me a great level of comfort as well as confidence in property development. Through Justin’s instruction, I was able to foresee the end result of the development, allowing me to make a quick decision that resulted in me buying the property through a tender process. I will definitely keep on engaging Justin as my Buyer’s agent, and also recommend Justin to people who is looking for a great Buyer’s agent in Brisbane.

Our association with Justin dates back over a decade.

His assessment, analysis and advice to us prior to purchasing our investment property was invaluable.  We subsequently subdivided and developed this investment property under Justin’s guidance.

Justin carefully explained the potential of the property, procedures and planning involved to reach our end target.  He certainly instilled confidence in us to complete our first development.

Many times we’ve picked up the phone with property investment queries.  Justin has always been patient and professional.  We greatly value his direction over the years.

We worked with Investigate Property in 2016 to help locate an investment property in Brisbane. Justin showed us several ideas and answered all our questions in a very professional way until we secured the right investment. We've been very happy with the service we received and would recommend Investigate Property to any potential buyers.

Justin was professional, prompt and thorough at every step of the process, his detailed reports on properties inspected gave me the confidence to make decisions quickly from another state.

When I first heard about Investigate Property I already had a few investment properties under my belt but felt I wanted to do more on the development side of property investing. After attending one of their gatherings I was impressed with their hands-on experience and track record of success. With their help I have so far been able to secure two development sites and access to a myriad of high quality consultants that have made the process of progressing through the entire chain of site acquisition, Development Approval and Building approval a low-stress, successful one. Justin has always made himself available to provide answers to my questions and guidance on how to get the most out of my building plans, whether it be as simple as what's the next step in the process to gaining me an extra bedroom or even an entire additional unit on a site where others hadn't see the opportunity. I can highly recommend the team at Investigate property as a great bunch to work with!

I have been working with Investigate Property and known Justin for 10+ years and had three standout experiences:

1. My earlier interactions with Justin were via his part in the Reno Kings educational courses. Whilst I took away many ideas and actionable items, Justin’s approach to managing the revalulation process helped me to control the valuations and release the equity I wanted to from two properties.

2. When Justin presented the first development opportunity to me, whilst at face value the property had development potential, he rapidly undertook some additional investigations and recommended that I do not lodge an offer, which proved without a doubt that he was working hard to ensure we had the right deal, rather than allow me to proceed with an average property.  

3. More recently Justin has helped me get a development site under contract. Through the due diligence period Justin has helped me mobilise an amazing team of planners, designers, engineers, conveyancer and finance brokers. Justin has managed the whole due diligence process in a calm, methodical and structured manner. Justin has a unique understanding of the complete property acquisition and development process and knows how to leverage the various advisors at the right time.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Investigate Property to investors looking for a client focussed, SEQ market savvy buyers agent who operates with the highest level of integrity.

Finding and properly assessing a development site is the absolutely critical first step to a successful project.  Justin is unique in being able to provide this entire service in a single integrated offering.  It is like having access to an acquisitions director in a major development company, but on a pay-for-what-you-use basis that makes this feasible for a small developer.  Justin not only identifies excellent quality potential sites, but with his thorough knowledge and experience, he sees opportunities where others would not.  He also assists with a thorough site due diligence, and has been extremely generous with his time in discussing the myriad issues that come up in the course of a project.  I intend to purchase many more development sites with Investigate Property's help.

Justin delivers a unique service combining his knowledge of the Brisbane property market and his understanding of town planning requirements to identify properties that deliver great investment and development opportunities for his clients.

Working with Justin was a great experience, he clearly communicated the development options and provided an initial high-level feasibility for the project. As a client this significantly reduced the project risk and provided us with the confidence to undertake our first development project.

We have no hesitation in recommending Justin to anybody looking for their next  property investment or development opportunity.

I first met Justin Eslick many years ago when he contacted me as a real estate agent, regarding a development site that I had listed off market. Justin offered to analyse development sites at no cost for me and as I was very interested in focussing on development listings, this offer was gladly accepted.

Over the next year or so I sent Justin everything that I came across that was in a development zoning and he, as promised undertook feasibilities of the various lots. Justin possessed the patience of a saint, as he professionally and politely explained that the sites were unsuitable or suitable for one reason or another. I did send him, what I know now to be a lot of rubbish, but the knowledge learnt throughout this process was invaluable to me and helped me understand what makes a great development site and what is best left alone.

Eventually, I sent Justin a couple of sites that he could see value in and he was able to send these out to his clients. I also worked closely with Justin to acquire an inner-city site for a developer buyer of mine.

Justin possesses a rare skill set in this industry, having studied town planning he is an encyclopedia of knowledge on Brisbane planning codes, but more importantly he fully understands the development process, can spot potential pitfalls of a site from a mile away and he has intimate knowledge of property sales and market trends. His feasibilities you can take to the bank and his negotiating skills put many real estate agents to shame.

Justin is also extremely professional, displaying high levels of communication at all times. He has excellent integrity and ethics, which are also rare commodities in this industry. I can honestly say that most of my early development knowledge and site analysis was learned from Justin and I am very thankful for that. I have greatly enjoyed working with Justin and he is someone that I would hope to have a continuing working relationship with for many years to come.

Justin found us a very high yielding property in Brisbane. Justin's depth and breadth of knowledge ensured the buying and due diligence process was completed smoothly and professionally. He not only found a great property but provided helpful tips, guidance and cost saving suggestions based on his extensive knowledge and experience in town planning and property development. We were so impressed we have recommended Justin to fellow developers and would have no hesitation in recommending Justin's service to anyone looking to secure a great property at a fair price.

I was introduced by word of mouth to Justin about 6 months ago.  Justin is out there finding quality investment sites in a very congested segment of the property market.  He brings a personal background in town planning and real estate and is supported by a well reputed development consultant team.  Justin's value is; the time saved locating the property, the support in negotiating the purchase, risk reduction in matching a site's potential to the local market needs and providing learnings from a large volume of client experiences.  I'm just nearing completion of my first purchase with Justin.  I feel in very safe hands.

With property essentially becoming a career change for me, I needed to ensure I got it right. I made the decision early to utilise Investigate Property's services and I am glad I did! Not only have I now purchased seven properties through Investigate Property, but I have also successfully completed five developments under their guidance, which has certainly kick started my new career! Investigate Property offer a wealth of knowledge. On more than one occasion the result has been more on the site than I anticipated, which obviously translates to higher profits and it is safe to say I wouldn't be in this position without their help.

I feel that I can always rely on Justin's detailed research before making an informed property decision. He is very prompt when replying to my email inquiries, and makes every effort to get back to you as quickly as possible - even at times when he shouldn't be working! Another trait I really appreciate about Justin is that he never talks things up, and will explain things to you honestly - even though it might not always be what you want to hear or expect. I not only value his professional advice and opinions, but I also admire him as a person with integrity, which is a rare find these days. I would highly recommend his services to anyone.
