Hey! We're Setlr

Our goal is simple: We want to change the way you buy property.

So we designed our process to make the process of acquiring property as smooth as possible.

We Know Brisbane, and We Know Property

With a lifetime of experience in real estate, and many years settling properties for our clients in Brisbane, we know the buying process back to front, and the ins and outs of every neighbourhood. We’ve done the hard yards, so you don’t have to. And by hard yards, we mean we’ve done time pounding the pavement in the streets of Brisbane and surrounding areas. We’ve been buyers too, and we’ve used buyers agents (that’s when we discovered our calling) – so if you want to know the location for the best schools, the demographic of a certain zone or just where to get your morning coffee, no detail is beyond us.

And that’s just the point, we care. We care about you, your home and creating a stress-free process for buying your next property, down to the finest details.

We Like to Get Around

From the eastern suburbs to the west, north side and the inner city, all the way out to Moreton Bay, Redland Bay and Logan. We’ve even helped clients settle into the Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, and the Gold Coast. So if you’re considering a purchase in greater Brisbane or the surrounds, let us help you make the most informed decision possible.

 

Simon Clarke

Buyers Agent & Director

Simon is a devoted and client-focused buyers agent, with a passion for finding the perfect home for his clients. He developed his love of the property industry whilst working alongside property developers, and after using a buyers agent himself to find his family home in Morningside, Simon knew that he’d found his calling. 

Helping people realise their dream gets Simon out of bed in the morning. Whether that be through a new place to call home, or the dream investment that ticks all the boxes, Simon takes a great deal of pride in finding the perfect property for his clients. As the father of a young family, he fully understands the importance of finding the right home in the right location, especially for those purchasing from interstate or overseas. 

Simon’s real strength is in communication and relationship building, which allow him to negotiate on a level that is levels above most others in the industry. In an industry typically coupled with styles of negotiation that could be seen as improper, Simon’s ethical and transparent approach is a breath of fresh air for all parties involved in the deals he coordinates. Ethics, honesty and charisma, layered on top of an astute level of market knowledge, and a genuine passion for helping people, make Simon one of the most sought after buyers agents in South East Queensland.

The ultimate endorsement of Simon’s strengths are the amount of repeat business and referrals he receives. Many past clients use his services again when in the position to upsize, downsize, or add to their portfolio.

Emilio Martinez

Buyers Agent

With an infectiously positive attitude and an unwavering work ethic, Emilio is extremely passionate about property and also has an enduring love for football having played at a professional level.

Upon returning to Australia, Emilio’s footballing career continued with stints as a professional player in the A-League for both Western Sydney Wanderers and Brisbane Roar. It was during his time with the Roar that he fell in love with Brisbane and purchasing property.

Now with over three years of industry experience and an in-depth understanding of Brisbane’s property market, he possesses a comprehensive knowledge of suburbs and properties suitable for both investors and owner-occupiers. 

Most notably, Emilio possesses a passion for forging meaningful connections with people and is committed to delivering exceptional service for his clients.

I engaged Setler as a buyers agent to purchase a unit for my mother recently in the Hawthorne area. Simon and Emilio are professionals and were both amazing to deal with. We were very happy with the buying outcome in what is a difficult and competitive market for buyers. I don't think we would have achieved as good an outcome purchasing and negotiating alone! I'd also make note of their expertise in seamlessly connecting us to legal help and advice for thorough Body Corp searches for added peace of mind. I'd certainly recommend and use Setlr again.

Setlr is a first class agency. It was an absolute pleasure working with the whole company and I could not recommend them more highly. The service, knowledge, professionalism and availability of the team was excellent. Setlr worked hard for us and found us the perfect property. I look forward to working with them again in the future.

Great overall experience with using setlr, we were looking to find our first investment property outside of our state with little to basic understanding of the entire process. Emilio was a massive help in assisting us through the whole process and even after settlement with a very broad understanding of the Brisbane market, more than useful contacts from working in the space and a sincere passion for finding value within the market for his clients. Our property brief wasn't the easiest to navigate as it was quite split and dynamic but Emilio done a perfect job of finding something that ticked all of our boxes and met the two briefs bang in the middle which I didn't even realise would be possible. Communication and help provided throughout helped to make the whole experience as stress free and smooth as possible and would seriously recommend if you were looking to purchase property within the Brisbane region.

We engaged Simon and the Setlr team as our Buyers Agents for purchasing an investment property. Right from our initial meeting with Simon and Emillio it was evident they are both very passionate, professional and knowledgable in their approach to purchasing property in Brisbane. We came to them with a brief of what we thought we were looking to purchase, but after discussion with them around our goals, budget and risk appetite they had some suggestions on how to achieve the best results. This ment our brief was now quite different but was exactly what we needed to meet our goals. Their advise instilled a great deal of confidence in us that we had selected an exceptional team to assist in searching for a property! Emilio then took over the majority of the property search and handled everything from presenting potential properties to us, attending open homes and providing detailed feedback/ analysis of every property. His communication throughout the whole process was awesome and within a few weeks we were under contract on the perfect property! Building & Pest inspection, conveyancing, liasing with mortgage broker, real estate agent and property management was all assisted by Emilio and the Setlr team making the whole process seamless and stress-free! Especially for people that are time-poor. We have since settled on the property and are very thankful for everything they have done. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase propery in Brisbane, you will not be disappointed!

We had such an amazing experience working with Emilio predominantly and Simon. The efficiency of the service for us as first time investers was amazing, I'm confident that we would not have found such a good property within the timeframe & budget that they were able to source for us We would use Setlr again on any investment opportunty in Brisbane and have already recommended to some of our close friends - which says it all imo!

Simon was amazing to deal with. Not only did he find us our dream home after two weeks, (despite us searching for months prior in a tough market and missing out so many times), he was so passionate and just understood our needs. If you are hunting for a home I strongly suggest you use Simon at Setlr as your Brisbane Buyers Agent
