Professional Buyers Agent (Buying Agent) Services
Buyers Agent Jason Corbett founded Rowallan Exclusive Property Buying Agency after years of working with High Net Worth Individuals (HNWs) within firms such as Sotheby’s International Realty, Carter Jonas and Savills.
He recognised that there is a need to help buyers and tenants find the perfect on and off-market properties. The property portals just aren’t enough. The selling agents focus only on their client’s needs rather than the buyers. And the result; without a buyer’s agent (buying agents or property finders), the buyers have no help at all.
Our ethos is simple; to act with discretion, confidence, and always with the utmost care. Buyers and renters need support in the jungle of thousands of estate agents, and time is short. Our incredible support network built over three decades means that our clients have access to the best professionals in the industry, from lawyers, surveyors, financiers and foreign exchange companies.
So we will ensure the best price for the best house, whether sourced through an agent or directly from a seller, meeting our client’s needs whilst allowing them to get on with their daily lives.

For property finding, we will normally agree a mutually acceptable percentage of the purchase price, payable on the successful exchange of contracts or 15% of the amount saved from the asking price after negotiating on a property, whichever is the greater, payable on exchange of contracts.
For rentals, we would typically charge the equivalent of the first months rent.
