What some of our clients are saying...


Melbourne panoramic 

“Catherine worked tirelessly in finding me a great property at a good price. She did things that I wouldn't have done (hours and hours of legwork) and more importantly, couldn't have done (organising the purchase before anyone else had even put in an offer). When I was ready to give up, Catherine kept working. I'm certain that I never would have been able to buy the same property within 10k of what we eventually settled at. Catherine more than earned her fee, and I would highly recommend her as a buyers' advocate. I will be going to her again when I next want to purchase a property….” - David

“...It’s hard to believe the apartment is actually going to be ours, especially as we haven't seen it. Thank you for getting us through the process of finding and bidding on the property. I am sure if it was up to us we would have paid a lot more for the property and we would have gone through even more stress to get it.  Thank you for being so understanding about our finances. You made this a great experience and it was a real pleasure working with you.” - Karen

“Catherine you were a superstar, efficiently doing all the searching and inspecting, taking pictures, analysing, talking to real estate agents and keeping us informed on any developments on a daily basis.  Your knowledge of the market, enthusiasm, dedication to find a property that met our criteria and exceptional negotiation skills helped us secure the house in the area that we initially thought was beyond our budget...” - Ross

"Catherine and her associates are very professional, accessible and we have again engaged them to commence the search for our next project  Highly recommended" - Kevin

“...Buying the property with Cashmore & Co was not only stress-free, but enjoyable and very educational experience. We would highly recommend you to anyone who is interested in purchasing a property, thank you for an outstanding job!” - Natasha

 “I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated all your hard work and support in helping us to find our first home.  Buying our first house from interstate was a daunting prospect but with your legwork and advice we found our perfect place much more quickly than we’d imagined, and actually enjoyed the process!” - Fiona

“….Nothing we ever asked was too much trouble.  It was great the way you took our needs (including our cat’s) into account….” - B.C

“….We’re both really indecisive people, and never would have dreamed we’d have the guts to buy a place unseen, but such was our trust in you (and the very detailed photos you sent us) that we took the plunge…..and now having seen the house it’s even better than we’d anticipated!….” - Roland

“We really appreciated your advice and support on the day of the auction.  It was a very nervous time, listening on the phone to the auction from Perth, but you kept us informed every step of the way and this really helped.” - Debbie

“…..We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to other people and will certainly be seeking out your help when we want to buy our next house (that’s if we ever move out of this one!)” - David

“….Whenever possible we tell people that they should use Catherine.  The expertise you bring are excellent and helped us understand the process and what to do and what not to do.  You discussed at the beginning that by using you it will save us money and in our instance and the current environment of Melbourne’s market I believe you saved us $100,000 or enabled us to get into a suburb which going to auction would have gone way over our limit.  You worked tirelessly to help us purchase a home. You got to know what it was we were after and only presented thing to us that met our needs.  This and more is a reason why I would use you again and suggest to anyone to use you….” - Amanda

 “...Thank you for your all your encouraging support, warmth and kindness. It was reassuring to know I could entrust this v important and valuable task of finding me a new home to you.” - Helen

"..We are delighted with our purchase, and keep replaying the video of the auction on the App. A well executed plan and auction strategy - our advocate was exceptional!.." - Paul 

“...Thank you for all your advice, thoughts and guidance every step of the way.”
 - Janet

."..Your service went above and beyond what we were expecting. You were always there to address our concerns - even after business hours.  Your due diligence in finding us a property and the detailed research you conducted put our minds at ease every step of the way.  We would not hesitate to recommend you ..." Helen 

"You have been amazing, not just in the time you have invested but also by going above and beyond the level I would expect from a professional .." - Alan

"We chose Catherine as a buyers advocate after reading her reports on Melbourne’s property situation and the opportunities on offer. She provided us with properties for sale, mainly off market, and her team of professionals assisted with the feasibility of these options, to help us make an informed decision. The main consideration is to know the likely profitability of the completed project, prior to committing through local market analysis and sales comparisons for the immediate area.  Once we had selected a site, Catherine attended the auction on our behalf and purchased it for us, achieving a great result for us with a bid 50k below our buy up to price. I consider the fee charged an extremely good investment as we were able to get the desired deal, with limited input and without the need to do the expensive and time consuming leg work." - Kevin

“You impressed us from the start, especially compared with the other buyers agencies we approached…” - Raj

"...Its been great working with you, we are so happy. No idea how others can go through this process without someone like yourself guiding them, you need to know the real estate game very well, its a full time job!  We are very happy with our new home and can't wait to make it ours very soon.." -Michelle.  

 "I just want to express my sincere thanks for a great job done with the purchase of our property in Edithvale for a sub development opportunity. You were able to capitalise on an opportunity and negotiate hard to get a substantial reduction to what was previously contracted but fell through. Catherine your knowledge in this field is very comprehensive and you are a very pleasant person to work with. It is obvious you look to have repeat customers via your level of professional service. Overall the experience for us was very seamless with great support and communication." - Gary

"Thanks again Catherine - as we kept saying on Saturday - the money we invested in your service was some of the best we've ever spent..." - Dave

"Simply the best money I have ever invested" - Brenton

"Catherine did all the negotiating with the vendors, liaising with the real estate agent and spent a ridiculous time period on the phone to the local council to clarify a building permit issue. She made the whole process a breeze (and got us a better price!). I refer her on to anyone who asks." - Callum

"My wife and I wanted to actively participate in finding our property, so we opted for Catherine's advisory service. But you know what? I would have paid triple that for her expertise looking back. What she saved us in time and money was many multiples higher than that." - James

"Thank you very much for taking me through this journey. Thank you for holding my hands to navigate such a tough market.
I'll definitely highly recommend your service to my colleagues." - Dr Choo

"I just wanted to thank you for your help in securing our investment property. Great work and extremely efficient! We are happy with the property and believe that it will turn out a good investment." - Elke

Testimonials for Cycles, Trends & Forecasts

"Like most of the services I'm subscribed to in Fat tail media, I am more interested in the wealth of knowledge that the hosts are sharing rather than the trade advice. I'm also very happy that Catherine has combined CT&F and her extensive knowledge of the Australian real estate cycle to give us an even clearer picture of where we are headed in the very near future. I feel a lot more confident when considering investment decisions having her insights as a guide. I couldn't be happier." (Brian)

"Cycles, Trends and Forecasts is an excellent subscription, basically looking into that so “hard to capture in a model sense” sentiment aspect of markets, and how our human emotions are connected to much larger natural cycles, driving the sentiment in a predictable but always differently manifested ways. Keep up the good work and look forward to future editions for many more years to come." (Dan)

"The publication named "cycles, trends and forecasts" lives up to its name. Research and analysis of the highest importance to elevating the financial intelligence of humanity. Simple to understand. Logical." (Darius)

 "Cannot recommend C T & F highly enough. A revelation to watch as the Investment Cycle rolls on as predicted, just like a Swiss Watch. Plenty of other great advisory services as well. The diversity of opinions and advice is fantastic, unlike the one sided advice most so called "professionals" provide, such as sales people flogging the product they earn their money from, e.g. real estate agents, stock brokers, most financial planners." (Grant)

"Understanding how the economy works can be a long and confusing experience. I wanted to find out how money works. Why we have boom and bust cycles. How best to set myself up financially. It wasn’t until I came across the team at Cycles Trends and Forecasts that I learnt how to understand what drives the cycle and when the next boom and bust will occur. In this way I am able to position myself to take full advantage of the next inevitable boom."(Robert)

"The articles by Catherine Cashmore's are excellent and can be used in your planing for future investments. I have saved tens of    thousands of dollars alone just in 2020. Keep up the great work Catherine." (Gary)

"Keep up the good work guys. It's refreshing to see a positive outlook for the Oz real estate provided by Catherine Cashmore." (David)

"The Cycles, Trends and Forecasts provides a fascinating insight into the probable future direction and particularly the timing of real estate and share markets." (Nigel)

"Wow what can I say Catherine Cashmore has got her finger on the pulse when it comes to the Melbourne property market. Im a seasoned property and share investor ( I love both) and I use Catherine to keep me sharp. Iron does sharpen Iron! But if you are novice she does keep it basic and simple. They are also believers in technical analysis using WD Gann principles which I have come to know and love as it works. No hesitation in recommending the team." (Chris)

"On Catherine, if you want original, honest and revealing insights and recommendations on the Real Estate Cycle, you can literally do no wrong with following her. If you take the time to read, understand and learn her material you will suddenly get an ‘a ha!’ moment. She foresaw the 2020 market Crash, and made recommendations for this. I moved 100% of my Super to cash 2 weeks before the almighty drop in March 2020, saved me $$$$. I also purchased my first property, here in Victoria, based on her findings and timing recommendations, and can honestly say, this information from her was priceless (and she has been proven right again!)"   (Lee)

"Catherine Cashmore is an expert in her field and I value her advice and view." (Kerry)

"I also wish to say as a truth...Catherine has a special gift between economics and energy! - With great thanks" (Terrie)

"it is by merits of coincidence or luck I was referred to your well-written articles on cycles and trends...I figure complex tax questions and structures for a living but how the bloody hell you wrap your brain around financial astrology and cycle analysis just blows my mind. Take this with all the praise and accolade as the mental power it takes to draw parallels is mind blowing"  (Dominic) 

"I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful information in your Cycles, Trends and Forecasts newsletter. I'm particularly glad that your content focuses on the Australian markets. It was only due to a chance decision that I subscribed to your service. You're doing a great job. (Tania)

"Having relatively recently entered the IP space, pivoting from entertainment, it's lovely to hear someone talk something other than the usual regurgitated material. The deep well of information you are drawing from is not only fascinating but unbelievably insightful.
And of course, it's from a pommie yid living in Melbourne! Kol Hakavod! Keep up the great work Catherine." (Normie) 

"I loved your latest CTF (cycles, trends & Forecasts) on the Silica Explosion and this is the first time I’ve heard of this ...thanks so much for bringing it to our attention. A remarkable story.  China’s strategic advance in recent years I’m aware of but not in the detail you have supplied.  ..Your factual story is important.  …..thanks for the CTF edition." (Chris)

"An ongoing major thanks for your brilliant, incisive analyses of both property and the general economic situation. As I have said before, you provide more value per issue/email than in years before you took over." (Neil) 

"Thankyou soooo much for your insanely accurate and honest and knowledgeable info. You truly are an icon of the industry and I sing your praises when its the correct environment and encourage others to join your service." (David) 

"I love Catherine Cashmore's insights and take on things, as a CTF subscriber. Catherine, I prefer your commentary to Phil's; it's more grounded. I like Phil (I also subscribe to PSE), However I feel he is a bit "flighty", drawing in piecemeal pieces of information.
The info that you provide is more & "together." You're also not hyperbolic, but say your piece sensibly, rationally and coherently.
You present well and are articulate. Thank you." (Simon)
