A host of high profile speakers offered their top tips on a range of topics including the best performing suburbs, capital raising and investment opportunities.
Andrew Wilson, Australian Property Monitors Australians have it in their DNA to invest in bricks and mortar and they have it in their DNA to be home owners.

Ian Hosking Richards, Rocket Property Group
