We strongly recommend Ivan and his team.

Finally we finished our development and Ivan and his team made the complex process of setting up our SMSF and of the sale of one of our properties to the SMSF so simple.

We needed to establish a SMSF. Dealing with Ivan and his team at Redwood Advisory has been an absolute pleasure. He takes what Can be a daunting experience and speaks in plane English, on a personal level and is genuine in his approach to assist. My partner and I have no hisitation in recommending Redwood Advisory.

Excellent all the way!!!

We absolutely love Ivan Filipovic of Redwood advisory. Let me tell you our SMSF Journey. Before we decided to set-up our SMSF, it took us plenty of months of researching online and talking to many SMSF specialist before we decided to settle with Redwood Advisory. Ivan patiently explained to us every details of SMSF, we only have less than 100 thousand dollars on our super and Dave and I just wanted to set-up a SMSF that will have a property as an investment. Other specialist said its not feasible. Why? I found out that their fees are too high for SMSF with a property. One specialist actually said to me, its going to cost us around $4000/year and they will do all the administration and book keeping. But for redwood advisory, only less than $1200/year regardless of how many transactions or investments you got, you need to do some book keeping yourself but I do not mind as long as we save our money that way.
The set-up was easy and only took a day. After the roll-over from industry funds to smsf, I started talking to a few banks but because we only have less than $100,000, they told me it is not possible as we can only take a smsf home loan if our funds is around $125,000. So I called Ivan and asked for some advice. Fortunately for us, the company just started a mortgage broker company. It is much easier to get a pre-approval this time as Ivan knows all our accounts and is very familiar with our situation. It would have saved me a lot of hassle and headaches if I just talk to Ivan straight away, this guy knows his stuff from A to Z. After we got a pre-approval with latrobe financial, we started looking for a property. We wanted to buy a brand new or relatively new apartment and because we only have limited funds, there was not much options for us. We learned our lessons, so we asked Ivan for advice straight away this time. So from purchasing/haggling our off-the plan apartment, choosing a real estate property manager, even installing the blinds in our apartment, we think that we got the best deal because of Ivan. Ivan haggled the developer to give us discount on the price($5000 less) reimburse $4000 on our stamp duty and even upgrade our carpet to wooden floorboards(save us$2500). A week after our settlement, our apartment got leased. We cannot be happy enough. We owe this man and Red Advisory a lot.


Recently set up my SMSF and Bare Trust through Redwood Advisory. I'd been following his blog for a while after reading his posts on somersoft forum. Although I still feel nervous about managing my own super, Redwood clear and concise information has put my mind at ease. The process was straight forward. I hate filling in documents so Redwood did help explaining the benefits of understanding the SMSF process. I would recommend to others looking to manage their own SMSF.
