From a young age I have always had a love for property to the point where I would take up any opportunity to walk through peoples houses at open homes… a little creepy I know.
This love for property was soon reaffirmed during my work with a property investment company through Foundations PC. When seeing the returns property could bring in both capital growth and passive income I realised this was whole-heartedly my passion and one day not only would I be an avid investor but I would soon be helping others to do the same.
I developed my skills in real estate through both the sales and property management departments in order to foster a solid foundation of all involved in the buying, selling and management of a property and more specifically an investment.
During this time I development my education and skills across the finance, broking and real estate industries and soon went on to become a property owner and investor. This experience taught me that there was a grave lack of knowledge and guidance given to first time buyers and investors in general.
This, coupled with my experience in the retirement industry with the Hon. Bronwyn Bishop and the struggles of the ageing demographic when it comes to having the funds to retire with, I realised that I wasn’t the only one feeling lost and so I made it my mission to find out every possible way to structure a loan and really make every dollar count.
Now, as a multi property investor and business owner, I understand first hand the challenges faced when buying a property or starting a business or both. Anything from how do I raise capital and how do I expand, to how do I buy my first, second, third or tenth property, to how do I buy my first car, to how do I retire and everything else in between.
I am still on my journey and am here to tell my story and to help others write theirs.
