Abode Advocacy

Our Team

Abode Advocacy Group was founded by our director in 2022 after he had a moment of clarity where he wanted to create a service that was solely focussed on guiding buyers & sellers of property through the often daunting & stressful process of transacting real estate.

Put simply without an advocate on your side during one of the biggest transactions of your life then you are dealing with real estate agents that often find themselves conflicted by assisting both sides of the transaction.

At Abode Advocacy Group we are very clear that we are on one side only, “your side”.There are many advocates available to assist you so why would you choose us & what makes us different to the others:
