About

Professional Buyers Agent (Buying Agent) Services

Rowallan Exclusive Property Buying Agents was founded by Jason Corbett, a seasoned Buying Agent (Buyers Agent or Property finder) with extensive experience working with high-net-worth individuals at prestigious firms such as Sotheby’s International Realty, Carter Jonas, and Savills.

Jason identified a critical need to assist buyers and tenants in finding the perfect on and off-market properties. Traditional property portals often fall short, leaving buyers unaware of potential opportunities or missing out on secret off-market listings. Selling agents primarily focus on their clients’ needs, leaving buyers without the necessary support.

At Rowallan, our ethos is simple: act with discretion, confidence, and the utmost care. We understand that navigating the vast network of estate agents can be overwhelming, especially for those with limited free or family time. With a support network built over three decades, our clients gain access to the best professionals in the industry, including lawyers, surveyors, financiers, and foreign exchange companies.

Our mission is to secure the best support and price for your ideal property, whether through an agent or directly from a seller. We prioritise meeting our client’s needs, allowing them to focus on their busy lives while we handle the complexities of property acquisition.

Typical Clients

Our ongoing searches evolve daily; however, Rowallan Buying Agents’ clients are as diverse as they are typical.

Although each has different reasons for employing a buyers agent, they share certain aspects, from time available to valuing an experienced expert on their team. A buying agent’s time is your time, and their expertise will save you both time and money.

Understanding the property market goes beyond browsing Rightmove. It requires years of experience, connections, and successful transactions. Just as you’d hire a broker for your wine, gold, or stock investments, think of us as your personal broker for your most important asset — your home.

Accreditation

A well-qualified, respected and experienced buying agent (buyers agent) can make all the difference. Jason alone has thirty-five years and counting, whilst the team has over 120 years of operating in the property market through downturns, upturns, and crashes certainly covers the experience.

Industry recognition as a safe pair of hands from leading professional bodies also ensures our clients know their search is in the safest possible hands.

From a legal point of view, buying agents (buyers agents) are treated the same as estate agents and therefore need to be covered by the ICO (Information Commissioners Office) to protect your data, but also redress schemes such as The Property Redress Scheme.

Rowallan Buying Agents are also an accredited part of the coveted body, The Association of Relocation Professionals (ARP),  Jason is a Fellow of The National Association of Estate Agents (Property Mark), and he holds a degree from The Royal Agricultural University (RAU) in property focussed Rural Estate Management.
