Customer Reviews

After securing our new home with the help of a buyer’s advocate, it seemed absolutely essential for us to engage this agent and VIP Consulting with the even bigger task of selling our home. Again, we could not have achieved the result we did without this agent’s expert guidance and advice. The first step was preparing our home for sale. This agent made many recommendations and with the help of his team of tradesmen we had the house looking better than ever in less than a month. We could never have found someone to do the job so quickly had it not been for this agent and all of his suggestions really made a difference to the look and feel of our home. From there, the selection of an agent was made stress-free because we were at arm's length from the process. This agent contacted agents, asked all the important questions and negotiated terms, all with our best interests at the forefront. While all of this was happening, we were provided with a great array of information on other properties for sale in the area, which helped us get a feel for what our home was really worth in the marketplace and how it compared to others. When we finally went on the market, this agent was there to encourage, support, liaise closely with the agent, attend the opens and give us constructive and informed feedback. Best of all, we sold our property in two weeks at a great price. It doesn’t come more stress-free than that. Thanks to this agent for your fantastic service, professionalism, responsiveness, good humour and for getting us such a great result. We will highly recommend you to family and friends and will be back in touch should we decide to buy and sell again.

It is generally considered that selling the family home can be a rather traumatic time, this was certainly the case for me when I placed my Keilor home on the market a couple of years ago. As I had little free time and traveling interstate, I sought the assistance of this agent and John Melatti from VIP Consulting to oversee the project on my behalf. This included liaising with agents, negotiating commissions, screening prospective buyers and advising me on where the market was at and what my expectations should be. During the sale period, I had no input whatsoever save for constant updates from this agent and John, at the conclusion the end result surpassed my initial reserve. During the next two years, I built a home in Maribyrnong that for various reasons I decided to place on the market. I had no hesitation calling on VIP Consulting to take charge. The degree of professionalism with which they presented this home for sale through video and point of sale material was clearly obvious when the home sold in a matter of weeks, once again to my entire satisfaction. This agent and John Melatti whilst always placing the client’s interest first have an uncanny ability to make prospective buyers feel totally at ease from which point they can build a relationship and close the deal. I unreservedly recommend this agent and John Melatti of VIP Consulting to any anyone seeking real estate assistance either buying or selling. Real estate can be a complex business and this agent and John know their business.

We initially interviewed several estate agents, to determine who would be best suited to sell our home. All had great things to say and all, of course, made reasonable promises. We were then told about a very good vendor advocate, this agent, VIP Consulting, who would siphon out those agents that didn't meet his very strict criteria. We invited this agent over and were quite pleased with his approach. After 2 meetings with this agent, we were convinced, this agent would get the best agent to sell our home and get the desired results. In no time at all, we sold our home and were ecstatic with the results. This agent was on top of all proceedings and ensured the agent did all he can to get the best possible price for our home. Even with a slight downturn in the property market, we got fantastic results and no doubt, this agent played an integral part. I have no hesitation in recommending this agent from VIP Consulting to those wanting to sell their home but not wanting to deal with the stresses associated with dealing with estate agents. Thanks to this agent and your team.

VIP Consulting Team, thank you for the dedication and outstanding service that we received as our Advocates with the sale of our Richmond house. You exceeded our expectations and of course reinstalled our faith in real estate agents. Thank you for making what could have been a stressful 6 weeks as smooth and seamless as possible. We at no time during the process felt any pressure and felt that when talking to you, you were genuinely looking after our best interests. Our house has been sold and we are overjoyed with the final outcome. We have no hesitation in referring your details to anyone considering using an Advocate and are happy for you to use us as a referee.

Over the past five years, I have battled and finally succeeded in accomplishing the building of my extension. Without going into too much detail, it has been a hard, lonely, emotional and somewhat confusing road, but I eventually reached my goal. Through the bureaucracy of Maribyrnong Council to the tradesman that have taken me for an ignorant female, I reached my goal. Many mistakes have been made, many decisions made due to wrong advice, but I eventually reached my goal. When the decision was made to sell my home, it wasn't a decision that I thought I would have to make for many years. In saying that, it was made and when you presented yourself in my home. I knew instantly, that you were the person that I wanted to assist me with this. You have conducted yourself with the utmost professionalism at all times. Your passion to attain the best price for your client is outstanding. Your upfront, open and honest communication made me feel confident at all times. From the Fagone Family, thanks to this agent for the effort that you have put into the selling of the property in Yarraville.

Choosing VIP consulting was the best decision we made when selling our property. Selling our home was a very emotional time. This agent and John's experience in the industry guided us through the selling process and ensured that our best interests were represented at all times. They were our buffer and protected us from making hasty and ill-informed decisions. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending VIP to potential buyers or sellers of property.

Selling and buying homes is something I have rarely done or will do in my lifetime. Real estate agents perform these functions every day and know how to get the best results for themselves during a sale. This can leave the vendor or buyer sometimes feeling that they didn't get the possible deal outcome and that agent may not have been acting in our best interests. This was the case when I purchased my home in 2004. I never felt that I got the best possible price and even a small reduction may have saved me thousands in mortgage repayments. Determined to ensure this would not happened again, I engaged the services of the advocates at VIP Consulting when selling my home in Strathmore. This agent from VIP worked closely with us in helping select the best agent and build a professional marketing strategy. He was there every step of the way, providing continual updates and interpreting the real estate speak into terms we could understand. Due to his support, we never felt out of control or pressured and this removed much of the stress involved in selling our home. We are extremely happy with the result of the sale and know that VIP were integral for the successful outcome. VIP not only saved us money on advertising, but were able to achieve a wonderful sale result which far exceeded our expectations.

Lara and I would like to thank you for all your help throughout the process of purchasing our new property. We decided to use the services of an advocate as we had very little experience in the whole process. From the first phone call I had with this agent, it was obvious that I had made the right decision to call your company. In regards to the securing our new property in Hampton, your approach was nothing short of amazing. As novices in the real estate market, I was unsure of the true value of the property I wanted to purchase. Without a doubt your appraisal of the property, surrounding houses, recently sold properties and properties still for sale enabled us to decide on a figure that we felt was reasonable for the property. We were not confident that this figure would be enough to secure the property however you encouraged us to have a go and see what happens. The auction will always be memorable to us and possibly you also as the property almost passed into you except for a dubious late bid which caused the auction to continue. The tension, pressure and stress during the auction was immense however after a long auction you secured the property. I have no doubt in my mind that without your tactical approach on the day, we would not have been successful. As the hammer fell, I realized that our choice to use you was the right one. You were genuinely excited and overjoyed for Lara and I and it was obvious that you are passionate about your profession and also your clients. I would like to sincerely thank you for all that you have done. The manner in which you conducted yourself was not only professional but most importantly personal.

This agent and John were a great help and it wasn’t just the bidding at auction. Beforehand, they conduct all the research and also helped us in assessing fair value for the properties under consideration. Their valuations ensured we didn’t go overboard in terms of bidding. In the end, we purchased privately with the negotiations conducted largely by John. Really you’re buying peace of mind, the opportunity to save money and truly professional advice. I would engage this agent and John again for any future property purchases.

Some friends recommended John and this agent to us because we had been looking for a house for several months, missed out on a few auctions, and were getting tired of the whole process. Working with them was a real pleasure. They are so passionate about what they do and are always approachable and happy to help. This agent and John were very quick and efficient at securing the home of our dreams in Camberwell, right in the school zone we wanted for our children. They also saved us about $50 000. Great job guys. We strongly recommend you. Thank you.

Buying a house and negotiating can be a daunting task. Thankfully I had a gentleman through this agent from Astute Buyers Advocates by my side. This agent 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.

I want to express my sincere gratitude for the wonderful service we received from Astute Buyers Advocate. Thank you for representing my mother and I. You took the stress off our shoulders with your research, professionalism and expertise. We could not have secured the property without you. I will be recommending Astute Buyers Advocate to all my friends and family when they are considering buying or selling. Thank you again for making our dreams a reality.

We would like to thank you so much for your assistance in purchasing our first property, we are absolutely thrilled with the result. 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 in to the auction. 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 found your research, knowledge of the local market and coffee shops and advice invaluable, and your negotiating on our behalf was astute and strategic which in the end had amazing results. This agent went the extra mile for us and for this, we are truly appreciative. We still can’t believe we purchased it $40,000 below what we were prepared to pay for it. We look forward to dealing with you again in the future and will definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking to buy a property.
