Asti is no stranger to research; having completed a PhD in Asset Infrastructure and Management, Master of Business (Research) in Public Administration and Governance, and working on numerous research projects for government and industry. Asti’s motto is research is the way of life; where she is passionate in exploring why things happen, how to strategically find a solution, and how to use information in decision making. Asti views property as a ‘treasured asset’, one that must be managed correctly in order to gain maximum value. Hence she is a firm believer that good, quality research is the key in making good decisions in any aspect of property.

Asti contributed to writing of ‘Guide to Integrated Strategic Asset Management’, released by the Australian Asset Management Collaborative Group in 2012.
