Grant has been investing in property for over 25 years and mentoring clients in property investment for the past 15 years. His interest in property began when he left school in Dargaville and headed to Auckland to make his fortune. It didn't take long before he realised that working in a factory wasn’t going to help him realise that dream.
In 1995, Grant took his first step onto the property ladder, purchasing a section on Auckland’s North Shore where he then built his first home. Shortly after he purchased an investment property, then averaged one investment property purchase a year over then next eight years. In 2002, his portfolio really took off when he took the plunge and committed himself to the property market full-time.
Before he even made his first apartment purchase, he spent six months learning the intricacies of the Auckland apartment market. This, on the ground research involved meeting numerous sales agents, property managers, building managers, valuers and mortgage brokers specialising in the industry. The hard work put in prior to his first apartment purchase gave Grant the industry contacts and knowledge he has later since relied on when challenges come his way. He stresses the importance of knowing the value of what you buy.
These days, Grant spends his time mentoring others as well as working on his own portfolio. Each year he forms an exclusive group of people who wish to work under his guidance to build their own investment portfolios, specialising in Auckland apartments. Grant is passionate about helping others on their path to success.
The financial freedom this journey has given Grant and his family support a lifestyle which allows him to enjoy life to the fullest and includes spending time with the family, playing golf, fishing off the coast, playing golf, dining out and playing golf.
Grants proven direct experience in the Auckland apartment market coupled with his financial planning qualification makes him a market expert and someone well worth taking note of if you are thinking of investing in Auckland apartments.
