About Aviate


Our Mission and Story

Aviate Group, est. 2001, has helped thousands of investors find and purchase premium residential property off-the-plan.

Company founder Neil Smoli was involved in property investment and development from an early age. Having done the legwork for his own property portfolio Neil began to systemise his approach to investing, creating the framework that was to become the bedrock of Aviate Group’s success – the 32 Criteria for selecting great investment property.

When combined with service that is second-to-none, Aviate Group’s turnkey solution to investment property is an essential part of every wealth-creation strategy.

Aviate’s mission: Building financial self-sufficiency through property expertise.

Aviate Group’s Referral Partner Network

Aviate Group has undergone due diligence as part of the process of becoming a preferred property partner for many mortgage broker and financial planner networks. We are proud that so many of Australia’s top institutions have affirmed Aviate’s research-based approach.

These groups are part of Aviate’s Referral Partner network.

Aviate Group is one of a handful of businesses to receive a QPIA accreditation from PIPA – Property Investment Professionals of Australia.


Aviate Group is QPIA certified. A Qualified Property Investment Adviser (QPIA®) is an independently audited and accredited property professional, and an essential partner for property investors.

Track Record

Our properties speak for themselves.



Combined an incredible location in East Perth, travel time of minutes from the CBD and amazing views, this beautiful selection of apartments may ultimately be owned by a mix of investors and owner-occupiers. A quality level of finish and great apartment layouts are the finishing touches on these apartments that will position you well.



Impressive architectural designs inside and out, cafés and retail at street level and a Brisbane dress-circle location are just some of the draw cards for this fantastic opportunity. These Woolloongabba apartments are likely to be the most popular in this growing suburb, locking in the fundamentals for an investment that positions you well.

    James S Aviate Client

    David T Aviate Client
  • I would like to thank Aviate for being so efficient and persistent throughout the entire process of buying this property. I felt like I constantly had your help and support due to your great level of communication, honesty and straightforwardness I strongly appreciate all the dedicated hard work and time you invested in this. After dealing with you, I can say that I am sincerely satisfied with the effort.

    Yosi Aviate Client
  • I am very happy with the service from the Aviate Team. I would score Aviate at the highest mark of 4. I am very happy with the detailed information that was provided to me from the team. I selected my purchase based on the extensive details that was shared. I purchased a property in a market that I did not ever consider entering. My investing knowledge is limited. I am pleased to have been recommended to Aviate. The team has opened my eyes to factors to consider when investing. These factors, would never have been considered by me if I was selecting my own property. I hope to purchase more properties in the future through Aviate
