A Sydney buyer’s agent has stepped up as the first across Australia to help vision impaired people get into property and secure their financial future.
Author of the nine-book series, Where’s The BEES Blueprint®️, Amir Meshel said there was no dedicated government buyers agent for vision impaired people.
“There is no government training to buy a house for people with vision impairments,” Mr Meshel said.
“They can get a support worker that comes to their place to check for wheelchair access, making corners safe or changing a colour scheme to relieve mental strain, however they are not licensed buyers agents.”
Mr Meshel came from a family which has been allies with special needs Australians for years. His mum started her current role as a counselor at Sydney Eye Hospital in 2011 and his wife, Sally, specialised as a classroom teacher working in special needs schools four years ago.
“I heard stories about the difficulties that those with disabilities and who were vision impaired faced and I wanted to do something to help,” he said.
After about 12 months of interviews with vision impaired clubs and assessing their needs, Mr Meshel is offering subsidized support for qualified, registered vision impaired people and clubs that support them.
“They will now have access to buyer’s agent services at a fraction of the cost they would have had in the past,” he said.
Mr Meshel is a second generation property investor with over a dozen properties bought, sold and traded personally in 24 years and he has attended over 1000 auctions.
Starting with $5000 as a single dad and having trained in financial planning at Westpac, he invested in regional NSW, Tasmania and WA. After consecutive years of 6 figure incomes and extending into 7-figure profit from real estate, he became a buyers agent in 2018.
The father of four featured in the Sunday Telegraph property section on March 8, 2020, with his wife for predictions their family would receive a good price for their 6-bedroom Randwick home.
He received three offers above the asking price and chose to withdraw the property from auction due to Covid restrictions on open house campaigns at the time. Now, two years on, that same property was valued in April this year at $1M above the highest offer he received in 2020.
“A well chosen property will make money in any market,” Mr Meshel said.
“A location close to where the busy bees are working will make sure that your neighbours are people you want to live next to and your property value will only increase with time.”
He is the first in Australia to offer a Service As A Subscription (SAAS) model as a buyer’s agent and also offers education and insights on property investing.
He specialises in locating and negotiating on properties within a 3-hour drive of the Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane CBDs.
“We are actively engaged with 16,000 buyers and sellers; 75,000 licensed real estate agents and brokers and seven countries including Australia and New Zealand,” he said.
“The opportunity this year is strongest in our lucky country, which is far away from anything other than a bit of rain.”
