Buying a property in Burwood can be a daunting and difficult process. For many of us, it is something we only do a few times in our lives.

A buyers advocate (also known as a buyers agent or property finder) can be an enormous help to make it easy to buy a home or investment property by:

  • removing the stress and frustration of buying a home
  • saving you time and allowing you to get your weekends back
  • saving you from having to deal with the tactics of real estate agents

Questions such as “where can I find a home I can afford”, “am I paying too much?”, “where can I find someone to bid for me at auction” are easily answered with the assistance of a buyer’s agent specialising in the Burwood area.

A buyers advocate can manage the entire buying process for you or, where you have found a property, negotiate on your behalf with the agent or bid at auction for you.

Burwood Suburb Profile

The suburb of Burwood is situated 14 kilometers east of the CBD and has a population of 15,019 as of 2016. It is covered under the local government areas of the cities of Monash and Whitehorse.

The suburb’s name was taken from a house build by Sir James Palmer located in Hawthorn West in 1852. It was originally known as Ballyshanassy in 1858 but was later changed to Norwood and eventually to Burwood in 1879.

By 1904 when the suburb had 600 inhabitants, development was in place with a post office, two hotels, a savings bank and several churches in the area. Farms and market gardens also existed including Alber’s Daffodil Farm which is now the site of the current Deakin University’s Burwood campus.


Burwood is known for its large buildings particularly those located along the Burwood Highway at Deakin University. A multi-storey building called BC is also in place adjacent to the Burwood highway.

In terms of commercial establishments, a Burwood shopping centre is available at the intersection of Burwood highway and Warrigal road. There is also another shopping strip at Bennettswood.

Retirement Villages

Retirees are most welcome in Burwood. Proof of this are the two retirement villages in place. These are the Fountain Court and Elizabeth Gardens on Warrigal Road but on different streets.

Educational Institutions

The private schools include Presbyterian Ladies’ College, Emmaus College – Year 9 Campus, Mount Scopus Memorial College – Gandel Campus, St Scholastica’s Primary School, and St Benedicts Parish School. The public schools include Wattle Park Primary School and
St Benedicts Primary School. The Deakin University also has a campus in the suburb.
