I want to express my sincere gratitude for the wonderful service we received from Astute Buyers Advocates.

David, thank you for representing my Mum and I. You took the stress off our shoulders with your research, professionalism and expertise. We could not have secured our property in Seathorpe Ave without you!

I will be recommending Astute Buyers Advocates to all my friends and family when they are considering buying or selling.

We engaged David and John to help us in our home buying adventure on the recommendation of a friend, and we have not regretted our decision.

John and David met us for the initial consultation and answered all of our many questions. Their services gave us a strong sense of security – knowing that someone had our back during the whole process was very reassuring.

Because of John and David’s market analysis, sound research and clear advice, we were able to secure a beautiful home for our family, for a realistic price. It would have been so much more stressful without their help – and seeing john in action at the auction was a thing to behold. I’m sure he thrives on that sort of adrenaline, which made our experience a lot smoother!

Our sincere thanks to you both, John and David!

Buying a house and negotiating can be a daunting task.

Thankfully I had a gentleman by the name of David Melatti from Astute Buyers Advocates by my side.

David took the worry out of finding the right house, negotiating and teaching me the art form present at Auctions and real estate as a whole.

I can’t thank him and his brother John enough for all their help and I will definitely be working with the Astute Buyers Advocates team on my next property.

We have known and used Astute Buyers Advocates three times over 5 years and every time has been a rewarding experience. We estimate the have saved us around $100,000 in those 5 years! You cannot argue with those figures, they simply get the job done & save you time, money and stress.

Whether selling or buying, they have made the process so easy and you always feel you have the upper hand when you have them on your side. If you're in any doubt as to whether you want to engage their services, I urge you to watch David Melatti in action at an auction. It's a sight to behold. The other bidders have no chance!
