REIWA Agent spotlight: Liz Sterzel, Property Wizards

“I enjoy finding someone a home they thought they could never get. Representing buyers, looking after them behind the scenes in ways they will never know and knowing it has made a difference in their lives. “  Liz Sterzel, Property Wizards.


Liz Sterzel has always had a good eye for property. When she was in her 20s, she had a gut-instinct to purchase an investment property in an oceanside suburb close to an expensive area. At the time, she didn’t have much of an understanding of property, but her instinct was right and the decision to buy that property turned out to be a very good investment.

Years later and Liz is now a successful real estate professional who has a passion for helping buyers and investors find their perfect property. She is Director at Property Wizards, an agency designed to assist buyers and investors with their property purchases. 

She is REIWA Accredited in two specialty fields, Buyer’s Agent and Sales Representative, and was the winner of REIWA’s Buyer’s Agent of the Year at the 2021 Awards for Excellence. Liz and Property Wizards are also generous sponsors of REIWA’s Community REInvest program. 


5 ways a buyer’s agent will help you – REIWA


While buyers’ agents in Perth have traditionally helped investors, there are more home buyers turning to buyers’ agents to help them make the right purchasing decision. 

Not only would you have a professional negotiator on your side, you’d also have an unbiased third party to prevent you from paying an emotional price for a property and avoid that fed-up purchase.

Here are five more benefits of using a buyer’s agent.

1. Help clarify your goals


The hidden benefits of a buyer’s agent

A lot of buyers never truly understand the value of a buyer’s agent until they use one.

Often a buyer’s agent handles lots of transactions every month, sharpening their intellect and feel for the market sentiment. The term ‘due diligence’ is transforming through technology in the property industry and buyer’s agents now have access to more information than ever before that gives power back to the buyer’s hand.

If you are still only half sure of what the role of a buyer’s agent is, here are five hidden benefits of using one.

8 Things You Get When You Engage with a Buyer’s Agent

More and more people are realising the value of having a professional buyer on their side. While real estate agents and property investment companies represent the seller or developer, property buyers’ agents act on behalf of buyers. They use their expertise and databases to search thousands of properties and find the best investment to meet the clients’ needs.

But what can a buyer’s agent do that you can’t do yourself? Why take your hard-earned money and pay someone to do the buying for you?

Here are 8 Things that you get only with the help of  a buyer’s agent:

1. Independence – unbiased recommendations

Buyer’s agents take the time to listen to your goals, where you’re at and what you want to achieve. They will then recommend the best plan of action to undertake. (more…)

Buying remotely: Let the professionals be your eyes

Would you ever buy a house without physically viewing it? The answer is probably not and there’s a valid reason why.

Whether you are purchasing your first home or second investment property, it is still one of the most significant purchases you will make in a lifetime, hence you need to do the due diligence to ensure you’re making the right decision.

However for some, attending a viewing is simply not possible. If you’re an interstate buyer, a FIFO worker, farmer, overseas investor or stuck somewhere because of COVID-19, but waiting to move back home, then hiring a professional to be your eyes may be the only transparent way in finding the right home.

Finding THE One! – A Homebuyer Case Study


Our clients, Michael & Louise were expanding their Newman electrical business to Perth and relocating with his whole family. Michael reached out to Property Wizards with the hope to find the perfect dream home for his wife and 4 children.

Proximity to the ocean was very important and Michael and Louise were also keen to be near good schools for their children. (more…)

A day in the life of a buyer’s agent

Recently, many home buyers have come to the realisation that in order to secure the best possible house for an ideal price, hiring someone that knows the property market inside out is the only way to go.

So, what exactly does a buyer’s agent do? To simplify this, let’s delve into what the normal day looks like from the perspective of a buyer’s agent.

The difference between a buyer and seller’s agent

For many years the uptake of buyer’s agents in Western Australia trailed behind the eastern states, but today many WA homebuyers and investors wouldn’t think of buying a property without a buyer’s agent at their side.
