The Secret Agent Team

It’s nice to meet you.


A message from the founder

As a prospective purchaser of property, you are confronted with a never ending range of choice with regard to where you might live, what you might invest in, how to confront negotiations, where to turn to for advice, etc… Mistakes made today, will be felt more deeply than those of a decade ago. Accelerating markets disguise errors in decisions; however the short term ahead may not be so kind. These are life changing decisions. It is said that the silence between the notes of a Mozart symphony are just as important as the notes themselves. That emptiness, helps define the meaning of the notes heard. It’s about what we eliminate from a property search – what we cut away from the selection process – that is just as important as the final selection itself. Secret Agent is a company which seeks to provide wisdom to the property consumer. To filter the good property from bad, extract meaning from data & information, select on value over price, and facilitate better decision making on what may be your biggest financial decision yet.
