Talking Property with Patrick Bright

Renowned buyer’s agent and author Patrick Bright recently joined Harris Partners’ Peter O’Malley to discuss the current property market.

Patrick has been a buyer’s agent for over 20 years and has witnessed many of the trends, tricks and traps that buyers and sellers experience in the property market.   In this discussion, we take a deep dive into the somewhat recent trend of transacting ‘off market’. We look at the pit falls & benefits for buyers and sellers in the process and the reasons why it has suddenly become so popular.   Patrick has bid and bought more real estate at public auctions than most in the housing market. In that time he has established strategies to deal with most sets of circumstances in the auction market. Vendors and buyers will find his insights invaluable.


Due to Covid-19 and in conjunction with restrictions announced by the Prime Minister, there will be changes to how the property market operates.

The Prime Minister has banned public open houses, until further notice. All of Harris Partners property inspections will now take place on a Private Appointment basis. 

This means that only one purchasing or leasing party will be able to inspect an available property, at any one time.
