We love to hear from our happy clients – please scroll down to read some recent (and 100% genuine) feedback received from clients of our buyer’s agent service.
As time poor individuals, my wife and I contacted Katherine to assist us in our search for an investment property in Adelaide. From the initial discussion about our investment objectives, through to the acquisition of the property, Katherine worked tirelessly to ensure we were only recommended the best properties. However, in an increasingly competitive market, we were always at risk of having to overpay for a quality property. It took us 4 months before we secured a property, and as frustrating as it was to have lost out on multiple properties to buyers paying big dollars above the market value, we are grateful to Katherine for helping us stay focused on our investment objectives and not succumb to market pressures. With Katherine’s help, we eventually secured a gorgeous property. Kate also had tenants organised weeks before settlement, with the rental yield exceeding our expectations. We have dealt with very reputable buyers agents in the past but found Katherine’s no nonsense, honest approach an immense pleasure to work with. Thank you both!:)

Robert Di Vita has been invaluable in the purchase of our first property. He made us feel comfortable from the very beginning, and guided us through the process of screening, identifying and ultimately purchasing the perfect home for us. He has been a calming presence throughout this journey, and won us over with his professionalism, knowledge, and optimism. Robert fought hard for us, and his negotiating skills ultimately were a difference maker. We would wholeheartedly recommend his services and those of NPB to anyone starting their house hunting. We have already recommended Robert to our friends and family.
— Piero (VIC, 5 Star Google Review, March 2021)
Antony was such a great help to us with his assistance with the purchase of our new home. Having him involved, particularly on the day of the auction, took much of the stress and worry out of the process and allowed us to keep everything in perspective. In the lead up to the big day, he was happy to answer all of our questions, was proactive in probing the agents for information and was very open and supportive. If you’re not comfortable/confident with bidding at an auction yourself, or if you want to keep a low profile, we would highly recommend engaging Antony’s services.
— Roger (VIC, 5 Star Google Review, February 2021)
My wife and I can highly recommend Antony as an agent to buy your next home with. He is very professional, maintains clear communication throughout the process and has a thorough knowledge of the housing market. His insight and experience helped in our house hunt especially in low supply Covid times. He’s also very personable and a pleasure to work with. We have now bought our perfect abode in less then 2-months through Antony, and feel he is, by far, a great agent to deal with.
— Bharat (VIC, 5 Star Google Review, September 2020)
We recently engaged Katherine from National Property Buyers to assist us with the purchase of our latest investment property. Although we had purchased alone previously, we felt we were not quite achieving the results we wanted in regards to rental return and capital growth.
After looking around and interviewing several buyers agents we were happy with the proposal from Katherine and decided to proceed with National Property Buyers.
Katherine was always very efficient and professional with her search and advise for each property that she inspected on our behalf. We were able to stand back or be involved as much as we felt comfortable.
The property that we purchased with Katherine’s advice was rented almost immediately and has exceed both rental return and capital growth expectations.
We would recommend Katherine and National Property Buyers to anyone looking for a high performing investment or owner occupier property. We will be sure to engage her services again for our next purchase.
— Nigel (SA, 5 Star Google Review, September 2020)
Antony was outstanding. Success cannot be guaranteed ,but as good as you think you are at negotiation Agents do this for a living.
He handled things confidently and was reassuring throughout the process.
We highly recommend him.
Thank you so much Antony.
— Murray (VIC, 5 Star Google Review, December 2020)
Katherine secured our home at auction effortlessly at an amazing price. She was incredibly patient and supportive throughout the process, and stayed back after to ensure we had everything in order. I found her to be very warm and genuine, and we never felt rushed at any point. Would highly recommend Katherine to anyone looking for a property, and hope to use her services again for our next property. She made the whole process seem easy and we were very fortunate to have her representing us.
— Prasen (SA, 5 Star Google Review, November 2019)
My wife and I spent a long period of time looking for the right property in Eastern Suburbs Adelaide to build our dream family home. The usual websites and real estate agents were coming up with nothing. Then we came across National Property Buyers. Katherine was nothing short of amazing. She was very quick to meet with us and understand our goals and wants. Highly efficient and communicative, she found our ideal property in just a few short weeks. I would highly recommend her services to anyone who asks, especially my close friends and family. Thanks Katherine.
— Ben (SA, 5 Star Google Review, November 2019)
I was looking for a buyer agent in Adelaide to help me with an investment property when I came across Katherine profile. After reading about her and some clients’s reviews I’ve decided to engage her services to support my goal. I have no doubt that this was an excellent idea and peace of mind. Katherine was very confident, straight forward, quick and knowledgeable. She found me a great house in around a week after contacting her and, as assured by her, a qualified tenant within another week after settlement. Thanks Katherine and Kate for the great work and customer service!
— Katia (SA, 5 Star Google Review, November 2019)
I was uncertain of using buyer agent at first, I thought it was expensive I thought can manage it by myself. However, it was way too difficult trying to buy a property from overseas without a ground support. I couldn’t successfully purchase a property after whole year search on my own.
Working with Antony started with an auction he performed for me. Because my lack of knowledge on property market in Melbourne, I set an unrealistic target price which of course ended up unsuccessful. He was spot on to predict the end auction price before auction start. i was very impressed by his knowledge and enthusiasm. So I decided to use National Property Buyers premium service. Antony sourced a wide range of good properties each week. He provided detailed feedback, photos, pros and cons for each property he helped me inspected, advice on which properties are worth to consider and the price range, within two months after I started their service, I got the property I really love. I am very sure that his tactical auction skill helped me secured this property with better price. Also save my time for endless search and inspections, pondering which one I should choose. I wish I could use his service one year earlier. I highly recommend his service.
— Vicky (VIC, 5 Star Google Review, November 2019)
Getting Robert Di Vita on board to help navigate the selling process for my father’s property was THE best decision. He works with integrity, humility and a passion for what he does! He knew my father was quite nervous and daunted about the whole process and was simply wonderful with his guidance and genuine care. You can see he loves what he does and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is considering a Vendor’s Advocate. Not a cent from your pocket. Like a Mortgage Broker, he works with the agent that you as a client decide to go with after his recommendations. Rob, you’re an absolute champ!
— Tamara (VIC, 5 Star Google Review, November 2019)
I’d highly recommend National Property Buyers and Antony Bucello who helped us to purchase a property in Melbourne. Antony is very helpful, friendly and passionate about what he does. He keeps in constant contact and advises every step along the way. His advice are extremely helpful and makes life much easier when it comes to making important decisions in the process. My wife and I are very happy with the outcome and grateful for the support that we received from Antony. We cannot thank him enough for assisting us.
— Naseer (VIC, Google Review, November 2019)
Living overseas I knew that i needed some help with buying an investment property. I came across Katherine’s profile, and engaging her services was the best decision. She made the whole process easy and painless and helped me secure a property in less than a month. I would highly recommend her services and will engage her in the future again.
— Skye (SA, Google Review, November 2019)
We had not tried an advocate before asking Antony to bid for us, as we could only be on a phone. Although we have auction experience, it was clear from the progress of the auction and Antony’s calm and measured bidding that he obtained the best possible price. Even though we were in a different time zone, he had detailed discussions with us leading up to the auction, and we were fully informed during the progress of the auction. We do not hesitate to recommend Antony to anyone who is considering an advocate.
— Withheld (VIC, October 2019)
Robert, Mary and I can’t thank you enough for the amazing job you did for us today. It was a massive relief for us to get the house for a price we thought was great for both us and the vendors. Simply couldn’t have handled the auction stresses the way you did as a professional. We certainly wouldn’t have got our new home without you.
— Peter and Mary (VIC, October 2019)
Thanks to you and the hard work you put in. I can’t put into words my experience with you on the great result you achieved on my behalf. From the first moment I spoke with you and right throughout the entire process you have been nothing but instrumental, professional, ethical and a pleasure to do business with. Your hard work and professionalism and dedication is second to none.
I will have no hesitation in referring you to my circle of friends , family and business associates. Once again, I thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart. Best wishes.
— Anthony (VIC, September 2019)
Our experience with Kate from National Propery Buyers was wonderful, unique, professional and, most importantly for us, successful. Her experience with auctions was evident and she kept us well informed throughout. I truly believe, without Kate, we would not have secured the property and, remarkably, she paid for herself almost 100 times over with the final negotiations and purchase price. She is now forever part of our family and I would unreservedly recommend her for anyone else who needs to bid at auction and I will refer her to all my friends.
— Simon (SA, Google Review, September 2019)
We highly recommend National Property Buyers as we have received excellent service in the management of our property. Katherine and her team have been outstanding in finding tenants and managing our property from a rental / maintenance perspective. The staff are very professional, honest, efficient and have excellent knowledge in property.
— Karl (SA, Google Review, August 2019)
Katherine went above and beyond with her service in finding our home. She had local knowledge and experience in everything that we didn’t and we couldn’t have been more at ease with her professionalism and willingness to get the job done at any time of day or night. Would happily recommend National Property Buyers to anyone who needed a hand securing an educated property purchase in Adelaide. 10/10!
— Caitlin (SA, Google Review, July 2019)
After missing out on numerous properties I gave Katherine a call to get some advice. From the onset it was clear she knew what she was doing and had no hesitation in telling me my expectations on property prices were not inline with the current market. The research and reporting on properties and bidding at auction took all the pressure off of us and we knew we were in great hands.
— Hobia (SA,Google Review, July 2019)
We recently worked with Rob Di Vita to purchase our family home. Rob was fantastic in negotiating with the agent to secure the purchase in a hotly contested private sale. His expertise gave us confidence that we were purchasing at the right price and I don’t believe we would have been successful without his negotiating abilities. Rob spent much time coaching, advising and guiding us which took away a lot of the stress and anxiety for us.
We highly recommend Rob’s services if you are considering a Buyer’s Advocate.
— Roseanne (VIC, July 2019)
Our decision to use Robert di Vita from vendor agents National Property Buyers proved to be most sensible. We had lived in our house for more than three decades and experience with selling property was non-existent.
Robert organised marketing and selling recommendations from three agents, and selected Harcourts. With the benefit of hindsight this proved to be an excellent decision. Robert did all the negotiation and settled on a sensible commission arrangement, with our agreement. He also provided a recommendation for a conveyancing solicitor, who has proved efficient.
This service was at no direct cost as National Property share commission with the agents.
Whenever we had queries all, or needed our morale boosting, he was easy to contact.
Most important of all, our house sold at well over reserve.
All in all, we had a very satisfactory experience with National Property Buyers.
— Doug (VIC, July 2019)
Special thanks to Antony Bucello for assisting us with our property purchase at auction on the weekend. Took all the anxiety out of the auction and subsequent negotiations after the property was passed in. Am certain the final price was lower than I could have negotiated myself. I will not buy or sell a property in the future without Antony’s assistance. Highly recommended
— Tom (VIC, Google Review, July 2019)
Many thanks to Rob Di Vita for his great work in helping us secure our family home. We really appreciated his expertise in valuing the house and negotiating an offer, which gave us the confidence in knowing we’d be getting it at a good price. We had initially wanted to place a higher offer, but Rob convinced us that we needn’t to so thank you Rob for saving us a bit of $$. Rob was friendly, approachable, efficient, knowledgeable, flexible and communicated well throughout the process. Would certainly recommend his services!
— Loraine (VIC, Google Review, June 2019)
We strongly recommend Robert Di Vita as a buyer’s advocate.
Robert made the process hassle-free for us through his diligence and professionalism. He regularly made contact with clear communication; and it was evident that he has strong relationships with many real estate agencies in Melbourne.
Very importantly, Robert has deep knowledge of the Melbourne property market and wise judgment of what makes a property a desirable one. His grasp of trends in population growth, infrastructure spending and local amenity was highly impressive. And so were his skills when it came to negotiation.
Robert is truly an asset to any prospective property purchaser. It was a pleasure to work with him.
— Joo-Cheong and Paula (VIC, June 2019)
Working with Katherine and her Team was a great experience. After months of no luck searching on my own, something had to change.
Within 24 hours Katherine narrowed my brief and search down to remove any time-wasters and within 3 weeks she secured my forever home under budget and before a public open. Can’t recommend her and the team enough.
— David (SA, June 2019)
My experience with National Property Buyers and Robert Di Vita was excellent. From the moment I picked up the phone right through to auction day. Robert was generous with his time and extremely knowledgeable.
Robert secured our dream property and helped us with the paperwork after auction, making sure the real-estate agent did not miss anything.
I would highly recommend using Robert to all my family and friends.
— Natasha (VIC, June 2019)
From the very beginning I good feeling about working with Katherine and throughout the entire process she was outstanding with communicating status, sending new properties and all the small details about what was needed and when.
With me buying a property from overseas, Katherine always had time zone differences in mind (not everyone does :), which I really appreciated. She was a pleasure to work with and I would have no hesitation in using her again or recommending her to others.
— Kylie (SA, May 2019)
We recently utilised NPB’s services for both selling our existing home through vendor advocacy and purchasing a new home.
Rob and Ant were great to deal with, prompt, knew the market and helped us through what should have been a very daunting journey. They made it easy and we always felt comfortable in knowing their experience and advice would get us through, couldn’t be happier! Thanks guys!
— Cameron (VIC, April 2019)
Thank you Antony for purchasing another property for us.
The process was seamless and quick – within a week of telling you about the property you had negotiated it successfully for us and under budget too. My husband trusts your opinion so much (that it is a good buy) that he didn’t even inspect the property himself!!
As usual you are on top of everything – organised, responsive and honest. You are fantastic at what you do and we are very grateful.
— Elen (VIC, April 2019)
We lived in Melbourne a few years ago. On returning to Melbourne we thought that it would be easy to find a property that matched our specifications, in our preferred area, and within our budget. It was far from easy, and we wasted time and effort viewing and researching unsuitable properties that did not match all or some of our criteria. We urgently needed a Buyers Advocate to search, assess and negotiate for us.
Antony Bucello referred us to Robert di Vita, and Robert became our mentor. His professional manner, enthusiasm, in- depth knowledge and contacts in the property market, made our search for our ‘perfect property’ enjoyable and constructive. Robert steered us away from considering one bad choice, which we otherwise might have settled on.
Our near perfect property, that matched all our criteria, was a property suggested by Robert, and one that we had overlooked when searching in property websites. We viewed it, loved it, and Robert’s negotiating skills got a sale price agreed that was well within our budget.
— Bobbie & Michael (VIC, March 2019)
Robert provided very helpful and pertinent advice throughout and was able to achieve a lower purchase price than we would otherwise have hoped to achieve. We were very happy with the entire service provided.
— Michael (VIC, January 2019)
Dear Rob & Anthony,
Thank you both for providing such an exceptional service. From the very 1st phone call to ensuring the right purchase all made me feel that I was in the right hands!
Major gratitude to Rob for your generosity of time, patience and going above and beyond!
Thanks you for your guidance, support and adapting to my situational changes throughout this process! My knowledge around property purchasing has grown exponentially, so thank you for being my ‘property mentor’ too!
Well wishes for a bright future!
— Frances (VIC, January 2019)
I’m a regular client of NPB proven over the years to be professional in every aspect of a selling, buying, & property management. Thank you guys
— Frank (VIC, November 2018)
National Property Buyers provided us with an excellent service.
Brenton was very helpful and responsive. He spent time to find out what is important to us and made this process very easy for us and relatively stress free. With Brenton’s help we were able to purchase a property that ticks most of our boxes which seemed impossible before we engaged him. Also throughout the process I learnt a lot about ins and outs of buying a house and I feel more educated and confident as a result.
— Agnieszka & Tobias (VIC, November 2018)
I’m a first home buyer. Robert Di Vita, from National Property Buyers, was patient and generous with his time, explaining terminology and what to look out for.
When I found a property I was interested in, Robert developed a detailed review of the property, which helped me decide whether to purchase.
Robert was instrumental in the negotiating phase of the process. He is extremely well-versed on the legal framework, and how to get the best deal for the buyer.
With Robert’s guidance and work, I know I saved many thousands of dollars form what I could have paid. More importantly, I came out with a fantastic property, with less stress had I gone alone.
I highly recommend National Property Buyers. A vital service for any home buyer.
— Belinda (VIC, November 2018)
Stephen…we are super happy – many thanks and we will be looking to buy again in a couple of years and will be definitely using you for that purchase again.
— Scott (QLD, November 2018)
We were hesitant at first to use a buyer’s agent, however, Simone made the process easy for us, kept us informed throughout the whole process and saved us money and time.
We are very happy with our purchase and would recommend Simone as a buyer’s agent to anyone to is looking to purchase a property.
— Davy (NSW, September 2018)
Investors, I can’t recommend the NPB Adelaide team highly enough.
We have dealt with Katherine Skinner and Kate Fuller in buying 2 houses over a 1 month period and we also asked the team to manage our properties for us, since we’re located interstate. Within about a week, Katherine had located and secured amazing options for us, in great locations with exactly the right specs for a great investment and saved us so much money in the process. Her advice, guidance and confidence was amazing. All we had to do was pick what the best of the bunch and sign the contract, Katherine took care of everything else, including securing a great purchase price, arranging for an excellent Conveyancer and building inspections. I wouldn’t consider doing this again without NPB guiding and managing the process for us.
Within a week of settlement we had our first tenant secured. New carpets and cleaning were needed, no problems, Kate managed it all within a very tight timeframe and kept me fully updated during the process. Access needed for depreciation schedule? Not an issue, Kate arranged it all with a smile (that I can’t see, but I do feel) . Nothing is ever a problem for this hard working, tenacious and professional team. No question was too small, and the attention to detail on things I would never have considered in ensuring the house was prepared and best for attracting a good quality tenant really impressed me.
I am so happy with the service and the hard work provided by this team, and so grateful that I can relax and leave everything to Katherine and Kate. Thank you ladies for helping us to prepare for the future and manage our new assets for us.
— Kelly (SA, October 2018)
Rob made me feel so comfortable and confident with his expertise and experience. I felt like I was in really safe hands. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my friends and family!
— Kate (VIC, October 2018)
We were hesitant at first to use a buyer’s agent, however, Simone made the process easy for us, kept us informed throughout the whole process and saved us money and time.
We are very happy with our purchase and would recommend Simone as a buyer’s agent to anyone to is looking to purchase a property.
— Davy (NSW, September 2018)
Katherine has been amazing throughout the whole process!
She has proven herself to be so knowledgeable about her area and all of the processes involved, very confident which in turn gave us full confidence in her recommendations, 100% reachable and so patient with my many questions and just an amazing person to deal with.
We can’t congratulate and thank her enough for the value and service she has provided us. We’d ask for Katherine again in a heartbeat when buying another s.a property.
— Kelly (South Australia, September 2018)
Robert could not have been more helpful and reassuring about the whole process. He was always considerate of my age and unfamiliarity with modern developments.
— Elizabeth (Victoria, September 2018)
I would just like to say what a fantastic experience I have had with NPB from the start where Steve helped me with his very friendly and understanding team to obtain finance, negotiate the sale, access to Nick from Redchip lawyers and work with me to find my first investment property in Brisbane.
He took the time today to show me Brisbane, the suburb we purchased in, the property and gave me all the information to back up the why and how we came to buying this property. I honestly cannot wait to work with NPB in the future with the management of this property and the investment of others.
Thank you NPB I love the down to earth attitude you use to buying property and the help and support. ?
— Karl (Queensland, September 2018)
We have purchased and sold more than 10 properties and this is the first time we have used either a Buyers Advocate or Sellers Advocate, I have to say this was far and away the best result financially on both transactions and with the assistance from Steve the least stressful.
He managed to get us an amazing price for our home and negotiate an excellent purchase price on the new dealing. On top of that he secured us the best agent and saved us hundreds of dollars in marketing costs.
I would never sell or buy again without using this service.
— Brian and Wendy (Queensland, August 2018)
Katherine got the job done in a quick and efficient manner. Good price, good timing to settlement and good follow up
— Peter(SA, August 2018)
Katherine gave prompt and professional service. Sound advice.
— Susan (SA, August 2018)
Going with National Property Buyers for our home purchase was the best decision we’ve made.
Robert Di Vita is a very professional Buyer’s advocate. He’s very approachable and exudes warmth while walking us through the process. I am normally the skeptical type, but I can honestly say I am very impressed with his professional approach.
The big takeaway is that we secured a property that we did not expect we could at a price we never expected.
He’s an extremely effective negotiator and put simply, gets the job done.
— Marvin (VIC, June 2017)
Brenton was great and provided excellent service. Look forward to the property selected to provided good capital growth.
— Gayan (VIC, June 2018)
Right from the start Katherine was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful
— Dave (SA, May 2018)
The amount of effort Simone put in was outstanding!
The level of detail and communication was extremely high. She went out of her way to do as much as possible to get us in the house that we wanted. She would meet us outside business hours and walk through every level of detail.
She was amazing and we were very happy. She has gone above and beyond in every sense, helping us connect with builders, designers, the real estate agent post sale and also helping us with other options after the purchase of our home.
She has been absolutely amazing and we can’t recommend her enough.
— Baseer (NSW, April 2018)
Robert met and exceeded our expectations.
From the initial no obligation meeting to the signing of the contract Robert was a punctual, reliable, skilful professional. His attention to detail, anticipation of needs and knowledge of the market was exemplary. All done with a relaxed and friendly manner.
Robert was working for our interests only and he saved us lots of time and money.
— Stuart & Gail (VIC, March 2018)
Buying your home is such a personal and emotional journey, I just can’t imagine anyone able to improve on the service provided by Simone.
Simone provided continued excellent service, communication & professional guidance throughout the process. Working with Simone helped us clarify our thinking & focus on a specific area. Simone did a lot of additional investigation throughout the period, and assisted greatly in the ultimate purchase process.
We are delighted with our final decision and could not have got there without Simone’s kind, expert and professional assistance!
— Tony (NSW, March 2018)
Katherine was extremely professional, timely in responses, personal and easy to deal with.
— Dale (SA, March 2018)
Steve was bloody awesome. I can easily say that without Steve’s help, guidance, negotiating skills, we would most definitely not had purchased this property. It was all down to Steve. Excellent job. Yeah!
— Craig, (QLD, Feburary 2018)
Simone has been very thorough and also realistic with expectations, she stuck it through the tough talks and kept us abreast of all changes. Also, she found us a property within a month!
— Harry, (NSW, Feburary 2018)
We cannot thank Robert enough for his expertise, due diligence and care in finding us the perfect investment property. Having never engaged a property buyer, we didn’t know that to expect and were honestly apprehensive at first. However, Robert relieved us of this stress with his in-depth of knowledge in smart investing and provided us with a comprehensive and reliable list of prime properties within our budget. Robert always acted in our best interests.
Robert was friendly, accessible and understood our requirements with ease. He managed to find us a prime property within a short period of time and well within our budget. We are so grateful for Rob’s persistence and hard work – we have also engaged NPB to manage our investment properties. We now look forward to engaging him in (hopefully) future investments and will not hesitate to refer NPB to friends and family.
— Prashna, (VIC, December 2017)
The Service was great! Clear instructions given by Antony Bucello and Brenton Potter was given to us on what to expect and what our money was buying. Very happy all round.
— Jeff, (VIC, December 2017)
The communication was fantastic from Stephen McGee and always very responsive and available. Carried through the whole process with diligence, perseverance and patience.
Great result and happy with the follow on with property management.
— Vivian, (QLD, December 2017)
We found the house we wanted, and we cannot thank Simone enough, we did not know where to start and Simone made that easy for us, always available when we had questions, and quickly responded with the answers.
We feel Simone went above and beyond to help us get what we wanted. I would definitely recommend Simone and National Property Buyers
— Tony & Jenny, (NSW, December 2017)
Katherine was fantastic. Katherine provided excellent communication, advice and demonstrated attention to what we were trying to achieve and showed genuine care and understanding.
— James, (SA, November 2017)
I found the advice given by Simone, professional and well backed – although I had done research into sales in the area the report prepared by Simone was much more concise and helped us come to a maximum bid that we were comfortable with.
At no point did I feel pressured as I always felt that Simone had my best interests in mind.
I found her very personable and friendly, which helped me feel comfortable in the lead up to the auction and on auction day.
— Eren, (NSW, November 2017)
I found dealing with Katherine from National Property Buyers to source my investment property as both professional and pleasant from start to finish.
She provided a number of options based on my requirements and answered my questions without bother. After closing out the purchase I found her service so good that she is now also engaged as managing agent for the property.
— Brendan, (SOUTH AUSTRALIA, October 2017)
Antony, Rob, Ivonne & the rest of the team at National Property Buyers (NPB) — thank you so much for being a part of our investment journey!
You helped us purchase our investment property in 2012, were the property managers for 5 great years and helped us sell our terrific property when we wanted funds to renovate our home.
You definitely made this experience a rewarding & profitable one!
The fee that NPB charge for their services was such a good investment in itself as it saved us a lot on the purchase and made us more in the selling! Ant & the team made this whole 5 year experience feel like ‘a walk in the park.’
Tamara & I can’t thank Ant and everyone at National Property Buyers enough for their services.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Antony Bucello & the team at National Property Buyers to anyone looking to purchase or sell an owner occupied or investment property, or to simply manage an investment property!
— Craig & Tamara, (VICTORIA, November 2017)
We have hired Rob Di Vita from National Property Buyers to buy properties for us in the past. When we went to sell our home of 20 years I thought we didn’t need a “vendor advocate”.
However after meeting our first real estate agent we already find ourselves lacking trust in them, after only one meeting, I thought we had nothing to lose by appointing Rob. It was the best decision I have made in a long time. Rob was our point of contact through the emotional and exhausting sale process. He understood the price we wanted for our house and set about instructing the agent to get that price or above. We actually failed to reach our reserve of $1,050,000 at auction but still had a good offer of $1 million. Rob suggested we relaunch with a private sale and was still hopeful we would get the price we wanted.
He rightly said that houses often sell in the week after the auction. After the auction I was exhausted and quite frankly ready to take any serious offer. If I was dealing directly with an agent at this stage I’m sure I would have given in to the pressure to sell at auction.
However Rob continued to push the agent and Monday week after our auction, we had 2 people privately bidding for our house up to the price of $1,180,000. It was incredible. If it wasn’t for Rob I would have accepted the auction bid of $1,000,000. If I hadn’t of accepted this, the agent would have convinced me to accept around this price within the next week and he wouldn’t have continued to work hard to get our required price.
I can thank Rob for truely being our advocate. Long after I was exhausted and wanted to give up Rob was still running the campaign and being an advocate for me. I can honestly say he made an extra $180,000 for us and this has made a huge difference to our lives and I will be forever thankful.
— Jenny, (VIC, October 2017)
We had been looking at buying our first home in Sydney for quite some time, but with no success. We were consistently outbid at auctions, and no vendor took us seriously when we approached them off the market.
We credit Simone’s abilities with securing us our beautiful home in exactly the area we wanted, for a much better price than if it had gone to auction. We’ve already recommended her services to a number of people.
— Neva, (NSW, September 2017)
As a first home buyer, navigating the plethora of information, selling agents, auctions and travel on my own was quite challenging.
Choosing to work with NPB’s and Simone was the best decision I could have made. Simone provided relevant information and was a great sounding board throughout which I believe helped me make better decisions.
The peace of mind, support and knowledge I received from working with Simone was invaluable and very much appreciated.
I definitely hope to work with Simone and National Property Buyers again in the near future.

I found dealing with Katherine from National Property Buyers to source my investment property as both professional and pleasant from start to finish. She provided a number of options based on my requirements and answered my questions without bother.
After closing out the purchase I found her service so good that she is now also engaged as managing agent for the property

Simone was a fantastic person to work with. She was great at explaining everything and keeping me calm and on track.
Her experience and advice was invaluable to me as a first home buyer and she made the process so simple and easy. Her dedication to her clients is phenomenal and she always made sure I felt like a valuable and important client.
— Joanna, (NSW, August 2017)
Simone, I just wanted to say a big thank you from Alex and me for all your hard work and support over the last few months in helping us to find a home so quickly and protecting our interests so well in the process.
We truly appreciate the advice, support and guidance you have given us in navigating the Sydney real estate market, a market which perversely seems to be stacked against buyers.
We would not hesitate recommending you to our friends and family. We look forward to having you over for a cup of tea, in between your usual inspections for clients!
All the best, and thanks!
— Brent and Alex, (NSW, August 2017)
A big thanks to Steve and Anthony!!!
This would not have happened without your professionalism and consistency.
I’m also quite impressed with the efficiency demonstrated by Tracey, she convinced me to entrust the property management of the new property with NPB.
So you know, I have been spreading words about NPB (all positive) to whoever listens.
Look forward to continuing working with you.
— Nadia, (Queensland, August 2017)
Antony’s guidance, advice and expertise, and reading of the situation and market is invaluable to the process and result.
The service is excellent and we will highly recommend NPB to anyone.
— Overseas buyers (Melbourne, June 2017)
Thanks again for securing the property!
Very appreciative of your dedication and advice throughout the process and very happy with the big parcel of land.
— Frankie and Gloria (Melbourne, June 2017)
We love it, it’s beautiful and in a great location.
Thank you for helping us to secure it.
— Kelly (Brisbane, June 2017)
We had a great experience securing our investment property through Robert.
He has a wealth of knowledge and experience in buying properties (and selling from his previous life).
He is very easy to deal with, prompt and professional.
Thanks again and we look forward to working with you again very soon!
— Rachel (Melbourne, May 2017)
Once again, you made it so easy to cut through the plethora of options for a Melbourne ‘newbie’; and find a property in the right location and get the right price that will work for me as an investor well into the future.
— Craig (Melbourne, May 2017)
Thank you Brenton for you expertise, patience and kindness.
I still can’t believe it!
— Wendy (Melbourne, May 2017)
We relocated from interstate to Sydney for work, and Simone was personally recommended to us.
Simone took the time to learn exactly what we were looking for, and provided us with invaluable advice.
I would certainly work with Simone and NPB again, and would recommend her highly.
— Wei (Sydney, May 2017)
Brenton did an excellent job to look for a property for me.
Services provided by him were professional, prompt and unbiased. He was thoroughly organized, systematic with useful insights for each property we spoke about.
If someone is looking for property related advise or services, I will be definitely recommending NPB as the go-to company.
— Raza (Melbourne, May 2017)
Excellent service and quality team who know their product.
Would highly recommend to other buyers!
Very happy with our first investment property and the support we had from the team in achieving that goal.
— Peter (Brisbane, April 2017)
Brenton was great for me.
I would have either impulsively made the wrong decision or continued to procrastinate and been very, very stressed if I had gone it alone. He also meant that as a first home buyer I didn’t have to get confused by colleagues and friends giving me advice.
We turned it around very quickly. Settlement was twice as long as it took to get the place.
— Tracy (Melbourne, April 2017)
This is the third time we have enlisted Stephen McGee to purchase a property for us. Each time Stephen has excelled and helped us purchase a house we would likely not have bought without his assistance, knowledge and connections in the market.
We have full faith in his ability and trust his property advice. For this reason we have recommended him to friends & will use Stephen’s services again for any future property purchases.
— Carly (Brisbane, April 2017)
Antony helped us with a successful interstate purchase during a three-month campaign. Since we didn’t know the Melbourne market at all, he suggested a wide range of properties that enabled us to focus on what exactly we wanted.
Once we had a clear idea of what we were after, Antony was good at suggesting properties and offering views on places we found online.
One thing we liked very much was that Antony was in no hurry to end the search by encouraging us to like something unsuitable. On the day of the eventual auction we were back in Sydney so Antony handled everything.
I found the service effective, good value for money and a positive experience overall.
I’m very happy to recommend this to anyone else in our position.
— Paul (Melbourne, April 2017)
We write to pass on our sincerest thanks to yourself and Katherine Skinner for your assistance with purchasing our rural property at Wasleys.
As we were conducting our purchase from interstate with limited opportunity to make frequent visits, your property searching and buying process was complete and very comprehensive. We were able to find the right property in a short amount of time, with minimum fuss and stress-free (a huge bonus given the proximity to Christmas and a relative lack of housing stock at the time).
We really appreciate the expertise you brought to the process, your honest and excellent communication skills. You listened carefully to our requirements brief and carried out very thorough research to present options matching that brief.
At all times you impressed with your frequent updates, sharing of ideas and presenting opportunities that made us both feel very comfortable. We viewed you as a partner as opposed to service provider in the transaction.
We would highly recommend your services to our family, friends and Defence colleagues who may consider purchasing a property in a hassle free and effective manner.
We provide this reference for your business without solicitation and as a token of appreciation for all your efforts. We love our new home and being back home in South Australia, thank you for helping us with the process!
We look forward to engaging you for future business as we look at new investment opportunities.
— David and Melissa (Adelaide, March 2017)
Thank you so much for helping us purchase our home!
You took so much stress and worry out of the situation and allowed me the luxury of focusing on other things!
Cannot recommend you enough and can honestly say there is no way I could have made the deal you did for us.
— Erika (Melbourne, February 2017)
I want to say a big thank you for finding me a property!
It took a while to sink in and I still keep expecting you to contact me saying you’ve found a great property. I really appreciate the flexible hours you work so that it’s easy to contact you outside my rather inflexible work hours.
— Michelle (Melbourne, February 2017)
Dear Antony, I just wanted to say thank you for your advice and hard work in helping us secure the property.
It was a great result and we greatly appreciate it.
— Tim (Melbourne, February 2017)
We can’t thank Rob Di Vita and the team at NPB enough for helping us to purchase our investment property.
While we were going through the ordeal of setting up our Self Managed Super Fund, I would annoy Rob repeatedly with phone calls and questions which he would patiently answer in a friendly and professional manner. This gave us the confidence to go ahead with the decision to purchase an investment property for our Superannuation Fund.
Three days after we signed up with NPB, Rob sent us some properties within our requirements and on the 5th day went to auction for us. It was over before we knew it and we couldn’t believe how quickly and smoothly everything went.
We are based in Sydney and the property is in Melbourne – everything was efficiently handled by phone/email with a minimum of red tape – all in all it was a great experience.
To top it all off, the wonderful Ivonne from the Property Management team found us a tenant only days after the auction at an above market rental price.
We would use NPB’s services again in a heartbeat and highly recommend them to any property buyer, whether first-time or experienced.
— Melissa and Eric (Melbourne, January 2017)
We wanted to thank you for your wisdom that got us a great investment that we would have never acquired without your dedication.

— David and Irene (Melbourne, January 2017)
I would highly recommend Antony and the National Property Buyers’ team to anyone who is considering purchasing a property.
Their knowledge of the property market is outstanding, but equally as important for us, Antony & the team quickly earned our complete trust and respect for the way that they managed our process.
The outcome that National Property Buyers achieved for us far exceeded what we thought was possible and for that we are massively thankful.
We will definitely be using their services again.
— Glenn (Melbourne, November 2017)
I just wanted to pass on my enormous gratitude for all your time and effort in attempting to secure my apartment for me.
I can’t thank you enough!
— Jessie (Melbourne, September 2016)
The most important features to look for when choosing a buyer’s advocate is effective communication, efficiency, reliability, honesty and humility.
Antony Bucello literally ticks all the boxes and he has assisted us in the acquisition of a number of solid investment properties – all purchased within the estimated price range which he predicted.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Antony and his team and look forward to working with him again in the near future.
Thank you National Property Buyers.
— Alison (Melbourne, September 2016)
Hi Antony, I want to thank you for your professionalism, your skill and the level of care you showed me during the process of buying my first home.
Buying a house is a huge deal and I know without your help I wouldn’t have Stanley St to call my own. I wouldn’t have been able to shift my thinking in those moments towards the end without your sound words summing up the situation and I am extremely grateful.
I was impressed from the outset that I was in good hands and I wasn’t disappointed. It is very rare to feel so confident in someone’s ability and wholeheartedly put your trust in someone to act on your behalf.
I am so fortunate to have had you to help me.
Without you knowing, you have made a significant difference to the next chapter of my life and my Mum’s.
I hope that other people in my position take the opportunity to secure their future by engaging your help.
— Gail (Melbourne, August 2016)
Hi Robert, Kerry and I would like to thank you and the team at NPB for the help in purchasing our first investment property.
As new entries to the market we had many questions that you answered with professionalism and patience.
The whole process was seamless, from the definition of our requirements for the search through to bidding and purchase.
Without NPB and specifically your help, we would have wasted a huge amount of time and resources, so thank you.
We will be recommending NPB to all of our friends and relatives.
— Mike and Kerry (Melbourne, August 2016)
Hi Robert, Quick note to say a huge thank you for work in securing the Emerald property for us.
We had already lost a previous auction and had our offers rejected on the Emerald place, leaving us confused as to how to go about going about getting the property we wanted.
After meeting with Antony and talking to yourself, you provided a clear strategy and plan along with a valuation and price range for us to go for.
You then executed the strategy brilliantly and secured us the property we loved for a far lower price than we could have achieved on our own.
Your continued communications and advice were first class and we could not be happier with service provided.
If we ever need to buy a property again we will come back to your team straight away!
— Gared and Tracy (Melbourne, July 2016)
Hi Stephen, this purchase would not be possible without your help!
We will definitely be recommending your services to our friends who are looking for properties in Brisbane!
— Jeryee and Fan (Brisbane, June 2016)
Hi Stephen, Jo and I wanted to thank you for all the help you gave us.
We couldn’t be happier with your service and professionalism.
— Mark and Jo (Brisbane, June 2016)
Hi Brenton, I really appreciate everything you have done for us.
Couldn’t have done it without you.
— Ash (Melbourne, June 2016)
Stephen helped us greatly to secure the property which we purchased. He was always available and professional. Nothing was too much for him.
His advice was valuable and we learnt a lot about real estate and auctions.
Using Stephen as a buyers agent relieved all the stress from us which we experienced before we engaged his services.
— Helen & David B (Brisbane, May 2016)
Robert Di Vita and the team at National Buyers Agency provided me with great informed advice in a timely fashion and professional manner at all times.
I recommend NBP and Robert wholeheartedly.
Robert listened and worked with me to help me find out what I wanted. He was supportive and understanding of my needs and desires in a new home.
Importantly, he was also objective and based his recommendations on factual advice and on more than two decades of experience of working in real estate. Robert was friendly, had a great sense of humour and was responsive and easy to understand in all communications. He helped me stay grounded in the emotional roller coaster ride that is the process of purchasing a new home.
Robert helped me to get a great place for great value. He helped me to avoid the pitfalls of over capitalization and emotional involvement in the purchase process by being an objective sounding board who gave detailed but easy to understand property assessments backing his recommendations. He also used his impressive experience as a bidder and negotiator to get me a result nearly 25% less than the upper limit I thought I might have had to pay.
Although this result might not be typical for everyone, for me, the cost of this service was worth every cent.
I cannot recommend Robert highly enough.
He was a real pleasure to work with.
If I sell or buy another property I would certainly contact Robert again.
— Irmgard (Melbourne, March 2016)
We wanted to purchase an apartment in Brisbane and not living there so needed someone to do the legwork for us and with strong knowledge.
Sarah saw the advertisement on the internet and thought it worth trying NPB. Throughout the process Steve McGee was very detailed and only presented properties that he thought we would be interested in. He showed us 4 and 2 of them we were willing to purchase.
Steve found us a Townhouse that we feel is rentable now and has medium-long term growth opportunities given its size, layout and importantly its location.
Working with NPB was successful as Stephen is detailed and client focused. He is fine if you don’t want to buy a recommended property and he didn’t ever try to force us to purchase something.
Steve McGee is reliable and transparent.
— Andrew and Sarah (Brisbane, February 2016)
Dear Stephen McGee (REIQ): Thank you for your recent help in finding an negotiating the sale price of our present apartment.
I was impressed with your professionalism.
We were at an impasse on finding a suitable apartment but with your skills and experience we were able to resolve the issue. I would recommend that a potential client take decisive action and use Steve’s assistance.
