Candice, client since 2017

We work with all kinds of clients at all stages of their property investment journey. The thing our clients have in common is the desire to build a better future and to find a better way of navigating the roller-coaster and often stressful experience of investing in property.

If you don’t have the time or experience to identify and secure your own investment property, it’s important you work with an experienced team. An experienced team can help secure the right property at the right price for you.


This is what Anne-Marie and Helen wanted when they came to us to help them build an investment property portfolio that put them on the path to financial freedom.

For Anne-Marie, it was important that we took care of the entire process without much involvement from her. All she had to do was decide on a property from our selection – we did the rest.

Helen appreciated that all of our communication happened via the phone, skype, email and online. She didn’t even have to travel down to the Sunshine Coast to purchase a property there.

Outstanding customer service is crucial for many of our clients. They want to know that we take their interests seriously.

Our property investment process

Why Our Process Matters

Before you’re willing to trust us with finding you an investment property, you may want to know more about our process.

How can we promise you an affordable and low-risk investment? And what makes our customer service stand out?

Here are the main steps that we take in order to give you the best possible results.

What are your property investment goals?

When you invest with us, you get more than a great property investment.

What are your property investment goals?

When you invest through us, you get more than a great property investment. We help you look at the big picture. We start with analysing why you want to invest in property and what results you are looking for.

Once we have established your end goals then help you choose the right first, second or even tenth investment property to ensure you reach them.

What are your property Goals? Most clients when asked haven’t got a clear end goal in mind, they often just know they want to get ahead, or retire comfortably so know they need property investments to help with that plan.

We take this one BIG step further, and help you work out what exactly you want, for example – if that is a comfortable retirement, we can help work out how many properties you would need, and what type would best suit to achieve the amount of income to achieve what a ‘comfortable retirement’ means to you.

There are many other facets of goal setting we can help with, a comfortable retirement with income from investment properties is just one. Have a chat to us today to see how we can help you with your goal setting.

What is your current financial position?

Our Property Investment experts will work with you to tailor a personalised “Property Investment Roadmap”.

From your current position, what is the best investment strategy?

We start the process by assessing your unique situation. Our 36 years of experience give us the insight we need to evaluate your needs.

We will craft you a personalised “Property Investment Roadmap”. These roadmaps are tailored to your individual circumstances, goals, and risk tolerance. We develop them by conducting extensive research, implementing thorough risk management strategies, and utilizing advanced data and machine learning technology.

Whether you’re looking to make a single investment, purchase a new home to live in, or establish a long-term investment strategy, we have the expertise to provide you with a clear and comprehensive plan. Our Investment Roadmaps serve as a valuable guide, providing insight into the potential outcomes of your next move and how it may impact your financial future. Think of it as a valuable guide and a roadmap that will give you insight into the potential of your investments.

If you are looking to add to an existing investment property portfolio, we will start by doing a health check of your current portfolio and use that insight into working out the best next step for your Property Investment Roadmap.

For investors who already have one or more investment properties, stability and money management are key when it comes to future investments. We can help these clients leverage equity to make smart investments.

At this stage, we also discuss your preferences regarding the location, type and style of investments. If you have done some of your own research, we can review your choices and give our expert opinion of your options.

Over the past 15 years we have assisted our clients in investing in more than 2500 properties.

We have the tools to make thorough judgments in any situation. Once we have evaluated our client’s situation, we can provide a personalised, customer-oriented service.

We find your the right property with quality research

Our in-house research team helps you to invest with confidence. Our cutting edge research and data analysis strategies combined with our experience and knowledge to stay ahead. 

What type of property and where should you invest?

Following the evaluation, our team performs the necessary research that allows you to make a smart investment.

We dedicate a great deal of manpower to researching market trends across Australia with a focus on South East and Central Queensland. This means keeping in touch with infrastructure shifts. By keeping a close eye on innovations and developments, we pinpoint areas that are likely to experience a growing need for housing development.

When we take an area into consideration, we generally spend about a week doing the research from our office. Then we rate our research to make sure that we’re making the most objective assessment possible

If we rate it highly enough, a team would go out to visit the location in person. There are facts that you can only learn by showing up.

So we assess noise levels, and we observe the streetscape during the day and the night. If there are any unusual issues, such as powerlines overhead, we make a note of it.

We consider everything from your future tenants’ point of view. Here are a few of the questions that we ask:

  •     Are there good schools nearby?
  •     What is parking like on the block in question?
  •     What about public transport?
  •     Is the phone reception working correctly? What about internet options?
  •     What are the current demographics of the neighbourhood?
  •     Are the local businesses doing well or are they struggling?

To get a really clear picture of the neighbourhood, we talk to the town planner and the council officer. We also make sure to visit the local information booth for more on-the-ground knowledge of the area.

All of this information helps us prepare a selection of potential properties for you. But location isn’t everything.
