Property Developer, Educator, Mentor & Public Speaker on all things property and property development.
Rob takes an active approach to property by forcing value onto property through the property development process, rather than simply waiting for the market to do the heavy lifting for him.
Having achieved his own financial freedom through property development, Rob now spends much of his time giving back to others through education and mentoring programs through his company Developer Network Pty Ltd, where he works with his clients to assist them in doing projects of their own by showing them the ropes along the way.
Rob has set a personal goal of setting 1000+ people financially free by the year 2030 and is well on the way to achieving this goal with 30+ members of his community already in the exclusive Financial Freedom Club and many more on the way. To be a member of this elite group you need to derive your income through Property or Property Development & also give back to the community through assisting others to also break free of the Rat Race.

My Journey In Property
I have actually started from scratch twice over so there are 2 very distinct parts to my journey.
Part 1 – I bought my first home at aged 18 with a very creative deal buying the house that I grew up in off my parents. I then read a book by Jan Somers called “Building Wealth though investment property” which set me on a journey of Buy & Hold properties with me buying my first investment property at age 21, which in turn helped me to own my home outright at age 24, and several more properties after this.
The buy and hold phase did work, but like many I found a glass ceiling in my borrowing capacity due to negative gearing impacting upon my serviceability and so I was forced to just sit there and wait for the market do the heavy lifting for me.
Part 2 – After losing much of my wealth at age 38 when I got divorced I lost my way for a while. After some strong personal reflection I regained my inspiration after reading 2 other books “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki, and “Think & Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. At this stage I decided that I didn’t want to wait another 20 years to build my wealth again through passive buy and hold with no control over the outcome and build a business out of Property. So I set about to build on what I already knew and learning how to do Property Development so that I could force value onto the property in ANY market, up, down, or sideways.
Now financially free, and having learned from several mentors, life coaches and industry peers along the way, it is now my time to give back and teach others what I have learnt along the way.
What am I up to now?
I’m still a very active property developer & investor but I’m now following my passion which is to teach others how to do it for themselves. I’ve been doing this by running Australia’s largest property networking group called Property Developer Network for over 9 years now (started in July 2012) with monthly Meetup Events running in 3 states (NSW, Qld, Vic) and also running face to face training and mentoring teaching property development strategies through my Property Development Formula program.
If you would like to learn property development or perhaps even join the the 1,000 people that I’m trying to set Financially Free, then I invite you to come to one of our Meetup Events or even give me a call to discuss how I may be able to be of assistance.
To your success.
