This is the uncompromising ethos under which we at Bidpro conduct our business and it is why we are acknowledged as one of Melbourne’s most respected property advocacy services.

Established by Shane Heffernan, a leading real estate consultant with more than 30 years experience in the Melbourne real estate market, Bidpro combines knowledge, skill and expertise to provide a service that is second to none.

Bidpro’s extensive client base continues to grow, largely due to the many referrals received from people who have used our service and are happy to recommend us.

It was extremely pleasing to receive the following email from a client for whom we recently acted:

Dear Shane,
Just a brief note to thank you for your assistance with the acquisition of the property in Kew. Being overseas at the time of the auction, it was an enormous relief to have you and BidPro guiding us through the process. We both harbored a deep sense of confidence in the plan; your advice was spot on; the price range proved completely accurate; your direction regarding strategy was perfect, and your support, common sense, and guidance were invaluable.
Whilst I am not sure that I would have engaged the services of a buyer's advocate in other circumstances, it is abundantly clear to us that, having done so, was to our obvious benefit, was a strong advantage on auction day, but also provided to us a clear understanding of the process, placed real structure and limits around our spending, and made the whole experience so much less stressful! I have no doubt that we benefited enormously from your representation, and I mean financially, by seeking and using your expertise, advice and knowledge.


We believe this is a very clear endorsement of the professional manner in which go about our business.

Whether you are a home buyer or an investor, we are involved every step of the way.

  • We source properties that meet your specific criteria;

  • We advise you on all aspects of the purchase;

  • We coordinate a legal review of the Contract of Sale and Section 32;

  • We arrange a building inspection of the property (where required) to check for any faults and items requiring further expenditure;

  • We bid for you at auction and handle all negotiations on your behalf;

  • We oversee the appointment of a suitable property manager (if required) and assist with all post purchase needs to ensure a smooth handover.

Wealth can be created through astute property purchases but lost through poor decisions and costly mistakes.

Bidpro is all about ensuring that your property purchases deliver quality outcomes … right property, right price, right location … good decisions, no mistakes.
