I am a former teacher with a passion for teaching and property. I created this course to inspire others in a no-nonsense but practical fashion and provide actual step-by-step procedures on how to get started.
When I began investing in Brisbane, Australia, I just kept an eye on what family members did with regards to investing and set about investing – willy nilly. I didn’t ask for help often, (I’m very stubborn) and just thought, ‘It can’t be that hard, everyone else does it.’ This was 2007.
Not long married, I very nearly bought a property without telling my husband (my conscience got the better of me), a new family home 20 minutes from where we lived (again, no real consultation with my husband, I just picked an area I liked) then we bought 2 flats (lost money on that as we did it in an amateur way.) Not long after that, we had another baby so sold the family home and bought another up the road.
What did they all have in common? I could see the potential in all of them as to how to create value but what I lacked was a system, risk v reward, the true cost of making a property over, the holding costs, basically the fundamentals of property investing…so here I am, years later, pulling together all the experience, time, effort and money I have invested in myself to learn not only the Australian system but also the UK system.
After 2 years of extensive property training in the UK, I have set about building our portfolio in a methodical way and have sourced dozens of properties for investors over the past 3 years to build theirs as well. I have experience in flipping houses for cash chunks, single lets, Houses of Multiple Occupancy (HMO), Commercial to Residential conversions and Mixed used buildings.
I look forward to being part of your journey.
