Our Purpose

Our core purpose is to help property investors be successful.
What really drives us is a love of property and a fascination for untangling people’s affairs; to take something that isn’t working properly and apply our minds to working out why, fixing it, establishing clear objectives and a sensible strategy to achieve them, and then executing the plan and seeing people succeed as a result.

Our Values

Our core values define what we stand for and are our timeless guiding principles. Values often derive from an organisation’s founders, and that is certainly the case with us. Each of the following 5 core values are illustrated by quotes uttered by Olly back in the day…

We value: Expertise
Olly: “We have no time for spruikers or flimflam like that.”
We respect expertise & experience – people who know what they’re talking about.

We value: Integrity
Olly: “We’ll never suggest you can be rich by Monday.”
We leave that to the spruikers and Ponzi schemers… we will never operate at that end of the spectrum. We operate with transparency and integrity.

We value: Practicality
Olly: “There’s a complicated way of doing things and a practical way.”
If we can simplify things to get better, faster results, we will. Why complicate things when you don’t need to?

We value: Forthrightness
Olly: “We don’t believe in hype or nonsense like that.”
We tell it like it is. We don’t bullshit people.

We value: Humour
Olly: “Property investing is a serious business and if you can’t find a touch of humour, it all gets a bit gloomy.”
We like to have fun and enjoy a good laugh. We can even be a little bit cheeky.
