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. 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!


Astute Buyers Advocates made the process so easy for us, provided us with a huge amount of otherwise unattainable information, and gave us fantastic advice so we felt completely confident going into the auction. And best of all - you saved us almost $20,000!!! We certainly recommend your services to each and every one of our friends who is considering buying a property, the result is invaluable.
We look forward to our future property purchases together


We could not recommend Astute Buyers Advocates highly enough! After 10 months of tirelessly searching for our first property on our own we decided to engage David and the team. Less than 2 months later we are the proud new owners of our first home. Both Erin and David took the stress out of the process for us and we were able to purchase with confidence on auction day, they guided us through the whole process. Thanks to everyone at Astute.
