Having a specialist and local buyer’s agent on your team gives you the edge, and helps you to minimise risks, maximise your returns and achieve your goals without the usual stress that buying property entails.

  2. Research Properties – We research online properties, liaise with sales agents and target off-markets where appropriate to your goals.  This research includes preliminary due diligence.  Once a highly suitable property is sourced and agreed, we start the acquisition phase.
  3. Acquisition – We acquire the property for you; this includes attending to inspections, detailed due diligence, real estate agent liaison, coordinating trusted 3rd parties, bidding at auction (if the property goes to auction), negotiation etc.
  4. Settlement – We manage the process and keep you informed all the way to settlement, including attending the pre-settlement inspection on your behalf.
  5. Ongoing Support – Many clients have a need to acquire more property, be they investment properties or an upgrade/downsize.  We view our relationships as long-term and are always here to support your ongoing property journey with independent and professional support.

Nigel Watts from Niva Property was truly amazing when I bought my Unit in 2024. As a 1st home buyer, the process was very daunting as you never quite know who to trust. Nigel acted as a trusted property & personal adviser, enabling me to achieve an easy and ultimately successful purchase whilst minimizing any risk involved during the entire process. Highly Recommended.

Nigel from Niva Property was a great help in securing our family a property recently on the Gold Coast. His timely, expert knowledge of the buying process helped us secure the property ahead of our competitors. He also made us aware of all the risks and detailed due diligence, so we could make decisions quickly and easily, making the buying process much less stressful. I’d thoroughly recommend Nigel as a buyer’s agent for your next property purchase.

Nigel at Niva Property made the exercise of buying our property very easy. His level of professionalism and diligence was first class. The lengths that he went to, in providing us with additional researched information on numerous properties, was above and beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend.

Nigel from Niva Property was a great help in securing us a property. He is highly professional, maintains clear communication throughout the process and has a thorough knowledge of the housing market. He went above and beyond to help, saved us so much time and helped us to minimise any risks in the purchase.We have now bought our perfect abode in a short duration with the help of Nigel and feel he is, by far, a great agent to work with. Quite simply, it would not have been possible for us to do this without his support. We would highly recommend Nigel and Niva Property to anyone who is looking for an owner occupier property or a high performing investment.We will be sure to engage his services again for our next purchase. Thank you so much Nigel.

Awesome experience. If you have a busy life and don’t have time to attend inspections, talk to agents, research streets and suburbs you need to talk to Nigel. He is a great communicator and super knowledgeable.

Nigel has most recently been assisting in our search for a suitable, affordable property for my son, who is a first home buyer. With each potential property, Nigel provides fast and comprehensive analysis of the market and the area as well as the subject property. This gave us the crucial insights needed to make the right choice at the right price. I have no hesitation in recommending him as an attentive and effective Buyer's Agent.
