    I'm looking for some advice on where to find some advice!

    Who should I go and see regarding buying investment property and setting myself up with making the right decisions over the next few years?

    Has anyone got any recommendations? Any idea what these consultants cost?

    Many thanks

    You have double digit portfolio at 68% LVR and now you're seeking advice?

    Who are your current advisors?

    you need to work out what exactly it is youre looking for, only then can you pick the right person to get advice from.

    when you say setting yourself up with making the right decisions, in what respect? structures? general financial planning? obtaining finance? SMSF? wills? tax planning? actual sourcing of properties? strategising what to buy?

    all of the above can be relevant and many require you to see different people

    work out where u are exactly financially, where you want to be and in how long (none of this wishy washy financially free in the future nonsense, make it something tangible), work out the gap you're trying to fill and what you do and dont need help with.

    then go get that specific advice.

    also, keep in mind that proifessional advice is easy to find but great advice not as easy. find someone great and pay them fairly for their time, many people stinge out and as a result dont know what they dont know.

    Ouch seems I may have found the judgement forum rather than what I'd have intended as friendly advice!

    Guess if you're focused on judging everyone you must be in a great financial position with nothing to learn? If this is the case then congratulations to you, I am not in this position.

    I am the first to admit I've got plenty to learn and that I'm always thirsty to learn new things and innovate in whatever way possible to derive better results, hence the OP.

    It was merely to understand if anyone has experience with anyone specific around the numbers of consultancies around and if they found it beneficial.

    I think his post just came across the wrong way perhaps?
    If what you're doing has got you in a nice position, why not keep doing what you're doing?

    Hi Richard
    I agree, you can never stop learning no matter how far you've come.
    If you are open to learning you can always fit more in.

    I would recommend self education rather than a person, videos, books, ask some specific questions, set some goals then work out how to get there through learning along the way.
