Brown & Brown Case Study
Spatial Data eXchange – Property Locator – www.sdx.com.au

Brown & Brown is a boutique Sydney based firm specialising in conveyancing practice. They have built a reputation for quality service with a dedicated and professional approach.

The team places communication high on their lists of priorities when dealing with clients. For many the purchase or sale of a house can prove to be a stressful time in their lives. Consequently it is important to them that a client does not feel disenfranchised from the conveyancing process.

Their edict is simply to offer prompt, professional service and straightforward advice. Brown & Brown see the conveyancing process as more than just filling out forms. It is an essential step in the process of transferring ownership of property. It is about gathering information concerning a property and preparing documents and liaising with stakeholders for its seamless transfer.

They know only too well that problems in property transactions often arise; not all transactions are straight forward. There are many reasons why delays may occur. Lost titles, finance delays, unforseen circumstances, compliance for subdivisions, problems on survey, timing of settlements are all potential stumbling blocks.

This firm has sought to minimise the risks of delay (or more serious consequences) through their ability to source products such as SDX’s Property Locator coupled with their own industry experience. The firm’s ambition has been to help ensure that that their clients interests are protected at all times.

When firm principal Garth Brown first saw the Property Locator he realised that the product fulfilled a need in his practice. As a document standard that acts as a locational communiqué between a land professional and a lay client the product has proven to be a winner for both Brown & Brown and their clients.

They “use it all the time with home purchases and also in preparation of Vendor Contracts.” A Vendor Pack is put together at the instigation of a conveyancing matter- ie when a property is first placed on to the market. Brown & Brown include a property locator in every one of their ‘packs’. Mr Brown has suggested that “SDX gives whomever they are acting for, be they Purchaser or Vendor, confidence and trust while impressing on them the professionalism of the Firm.”

He adds that “the Purchaser gains a more informed idea and picture of what they are committing to.” In an extremely competitive professional landscape such as the property market in suburban Sydney it is critical that a sustainable competitive advantage be found for each practice if it is to prosper. It appears that, with the aid of SDX, Mr Brown has found his.

'Garth Brown from Brown and Brown Conveyancers was recommended to me by my buyers agent. They were not the cheapest but was recommended as the company that will provide me with red carpet service during my property transfer transaction. Buying a property remotely is difficult enough and I decided to use Garth as my Conveyancer.

A decision I will never regret. I got the red carpet services as I hoped for. I never had to guess what is happening despite an abnormal transaction where the vendor and his bank has delayed the transaction due to issues on their side.

I have regular received updates via email and text message what is happening or what needs to be put in place for settlement. This information updates helped me to not worry about anything. I will not use anybody else in Sydney for my next property. Price does not matter.'

'My husband and I have used Garth Brown’s services twice in recent years to help us buy units: once in 2004 and the second time in the last couple of months. Each time we have found Garth to be personable and professional: he gave us confidence that he knew what he was doing. Garth attended to all issues quickly and kept us informed about where the process was up to, via email, SMS and phone. So no matter where we were at the time or what we were doing, we were able to keep up with the latest progress. Also Garth always returned our phone calls promptly. We would definitely use Garth’s services again and would (and have) recommended him to others. Thank you Garth. It was great to deal with someone who was genuinely interested in our concerns.'

'Dear Garth, I wanted to write a brief email to thank you and the Brown and Brown team for your outstanding service through a difficult house sale. As you know we live outside Australia so it has been very challenging dealing with the real estate agent, the tenant and the purchaser from my base in London. From start to finish you managed the negotiations thoroughly and professionally and were very proactive in keeping my wife and I informed at every step. You even managed to negotiate better terms than I was expecting. I would recommend Brown and Brown Conveyancers to any prospective clients. Please feel free to provide my contact details for a recommendation if needed in future. I wish you all the very best success for 2010.'

'Hi Garth, I wanted to thank you so very much for a mighty effort and all the personal attention you provided me on the recent sale of my property. I have used your services now three times and on each occasion you have provided and old fashion service and have crossed the T's and dotted the I's along the way, combined with today's technology you have kept me up to date every step of the way. The personal touch goes a long way in today's hustle and bustle where no one wants to know you after the first phone call. I look forward to using your services again when I purchase / sell my next property in the very near future. Keep the News Letters going, they are most helpful.'

Would definitely recommend Garth and his company to any first time buyers.' Top qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity.

Garth Brown stepped us through the process in a very professional way. He liaised with both the House Seller and the banks on our behalf which helped reduce the stress. We were initially drawn to Brown & Brown through their website which we found very informative. Garth Brown kept us informed during every step of the process and we moved into our house on the agreed date. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brown & Brown Conveyancing to other prospective clients.’

'Utmost professionalism and seamless communication ... '

'Once again, my wife and I, along with our family want to thank you and your staff for the utmost professionalism and seamless communication in handling our most recent sale and subsequent settlement. I wish to point out to the many readers of your e-Newsletter the difference between using your company and, as I have in the past, my solicitor. Whilst I have no hesitation in using my solicitor for most legal matters I have found that the attitude towards conveyance work is a little too relaxed and non-fussed from the legal fraternity . In contrast, your company kept me up-dated every step of the way in the form of e-mails and follow up e-mails to and from the vendor’s solicitor and real estate agent. In fact in was interesting to turn on the computer and see that any hold-up’s in the entire process were most always due to other parties not following through in which case another email Cc’d onto me would usually prompt them into action. One more point that most people seem to over-look until it hits them square in the face. That is, if I had to organise removalists and then move into a new residence without the seamless communication offered by your company, it would be an absolute nightmare. Even though this property was a rental, timing was essential, but I can relax knowing that the next transaction, be it a home or rental property will be as smooth and hassle free as the last few handled by Brown and Brown. Thanks mate.'

Mr Ron Carrabs – Padstow, Sydney

'Garth’s professional and pleasant approach left us in no doubt that we were in the best hands when it came to selling our Sydney property.

Everything went without a hitch and we would recommend Garth Brown to anyone purchasing or selling a home.’

Jennifer Treur – Avalon Beach, Sydney NSW

‘Thank you so much. You have been nothing but wonderful through this long exchange. I look forward to the 22nd and finally being free. Kind regards.'

'My husband and I have used Brown & Brown Conveyancing for both of our purchases in Sydney. The first was six years ago and the most recent in February 2009. On both occasions we found the services to be of a high quality and delivered in a professional manner. We were kept up to date at every stage of the proceedings and received relevant and timely information which left us feeling that we were in safe hands. Both purchases settled without incident. We would recommend Brown & Brown Conveyancing to others considering buying or selling a property. Regards.'
