The most important thing in my life is, my family. Life balance comes second, which for me, is largely provided through surfing. Next are my other loves; property and building businesses.
I like to create things which can stand longer than ourselves, to employ good, positive people and improve the towns in which we live. I best describe myself as a Property Entrepreneur.
I bought my first property at 17 and after a stint as a Policeman, I found my way into property full time as a commercial sales and leasing agent. I worked with both boutique and major firms, gaining expertise in leasing, buying and building residential, commercial, investment and development property.
At 33 with a personal holding in excess of 50 properties and over 10 businesses, many of which were start-ups with various partners, I thought I was king of the world and “retired” . I was wrong, very wrong and the GFC taught me many lessons, taking a hefty financial and personal toll.
As a result, I have now used all this knowledge to rebuild and create a property and business portfolio that I am very proud of. I possess a greater sense of self and actively seek to share what I modestly consider to be an extensive property based knowledge.
The businesses we operate provide property owners and potential investors with expert management advice in residential, commercial, office and industrial sectors. We also assist start-up, small and medium businesses with tailored office suites through our business, The Boarding Office.
…… and remember to smile! You won the ‘birth lottery’, to live in this country, age and time!
