Carl Burling was always destined to do his own thing. Working for ‘the man’ was never on his long-term agenda – not that he knew it at the time.

But quite how he ended up as one of New Zealand’s more successful property investors and business partner of Olly Newland is an interesting story.

Carl is a qualified engineer who had a decades of experience in the energy and gas industries in engineering and project management roles before he became involved with property investment.

Carl has worked in property investment for the past 20 years, founding his own property investment and management business ten years ago. He specializes in value-add opportunities in residential and commercial property sectors, and he has managed hundreds of projects.

Carl has a wealth of practical experience in the challenges and opportunities presented by property investment and management — including renovating residential and commercial properties, leasing, management, and co-ordinating sales programmes.

Carl is married with three children. He enjoys the outdoors, water sports and competitive yacht racing.
