I first became interested in real estate when I sold my second home in Perth, WA. It was a positive experience and I made a bit of money from the sale. After returning to my native home state of Victoria, I pursued a career as an estate agent and in 1993 I began with a large and highly respected company, Woodards Real Estate. It was an incredibly steep learning curve, as I'd never sold anything before, but with the help of some great work colleagues and mentors I made a living.
I met the love of my life and now wife Trudie while vacationing overseas. We live in Shepparton, which is a small regional city approximately two hours’ drive north of Melbourne, with our two children Chloe and Liam.
As a result of the move north, I left Woodards Real Estate after working there for almost seven years. I had a brief break from selling real estate, but my love of real estate has never waned. It was during this break from selling that I became more and more interested in finding out how to buy unlimited investment properties.
I say “unlimited” because during my career as an estate agent I had occasionally met buyers who came back to me year after year wanting to buy another investment property. I started off reading numerous books on the subject and attending investment seminars, but whether it was due to a lack of drive on my part or because the information provided was not specific enough, I never turned that information into an investment portfolio. However, having met people who own large investment portfolios, I knew it was possible.
"How to Buy Unlimited Investment Properties" is my first book, and describes exactly how I reached my goals, including all the failures I had along the way. My second book, "Buy Unlimited Properties and Retire in 10 Years", shows you more about how to build and generate income from your portfolio as you work towards financial independence and retirement. My latest book, “The Ultimate Wealth Guide for Real Estate Agents” puts forward a new vision for the real estate industry based on the idea of agents becoming successful property investors in their own right, and using the expertise they gain in doing so to help other investors and attract new clients.
By following the methods I set out in my books, and with the support of my wife, I was able to build a property portfolio for my family that allowed me to retire at the age of 46. Since finishing work, my interest in real estate has never waned. I still love looking through real estate newspapers and the windows of real estate agencies, particularly when I am on holidays and my wife is scouring the dress shops near an agent’s office. I have never stopped loving real estate and following the industry. I now devote a part of my time to writing about and promoting my ideas about property investing and real estate for the benefit of investors and the industry.
All the profits from the sale of “The Ultimate Wealth Guide for Real Estate Agents” go to the Fred Hollows Foundation (FHF). The FHF is a fantastic, independent not-for-profit organisation that does wonderful work here in my native Australia and more than 25 countries around the world, restoring sight to more than 2.5 million people. They are currently working towards eliminating avoidable blindness and improving the health of Indigenous Australians. A more detailed description of the work they do is available inside the book. If you do buy “The Ultimate Wealth Guide”, on behalf of the FHF, I thank you for your contribution.
