About Rob

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.

Rob’s education is, for me, the link between the theoretical and grass roots practicalities of property development and site analysis. Rob was able to clearly answer any questions, and back up his answers with real life examples from his experience. His expert instruction will challenge you to think for yourself, inspire you, give you confidence, and set you on a well directed path to further educate yourself. I will definitely be booking more time with Rob in the near future!

Great couple of days. Content rich, Rob throws a huge amount of detail into his course. This course is great for beginners and for those wanting to find out a few handy tricks of the trade. Highly recommended.

This is by far the best money we have spent in learning about property. If you want to learn how to analyse a sute for development potential then this is a must do.
Alex WoodsTraction Property
Rob has so much information and experience to share. It’s a very unique detailed course providing real life site analysis scenarios. We are shown how to use the online tools required to analyse sites effectively and efficiently. I cannot recommend this course highly enough if you are struggling with where or how to start!!! Thanks Rob, fabulous course.
Khoa Tran
Thank you Rob! You’ve shown us the door, and how to walk through it, and got us walking through it a few times. Even though property development is a complex area, and there are so much to learn more, I feel I know enough to get started now. By the way, you’ve got an amazing skill in simplifying complex concepts without losing its original meaning.

I learnt so much in this course, thank you Rob! Invaluable material and very engaging style. 😊
Ruti MeyerThe Catalyst Group
This is a terrific two day intensive course designed to help prospective property developers finding their way around the Brisbane City Council Website, working through real deal examples, developing the skill to quickly discard a property if it does not meet the required development criteria, as well as a strong focus on problem solving techniques. I found the course extremely useful.
Rachel Murphy
Before I did PD101 I was struggling with researching properties online effectively – exactly what to look for, and equally importantly, whether there was a profit to be made.  After Rob’s two day intensive, I finally knew exactly what I should be looking for, and how to check each component online.  Four months later I had my first deal!  Rob uses language that’s easy to understand and his course is practical and down-to-earth.  Highly recommended!

The Property Developer 101 course is by far the most comprehensive property development site acquisition course in Australia that has equipped me with a process, the knowledge and skills and confidence to find profitable property development deals.

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 a networking group called Property Developer Network for over 6 years now (started in July 2012), and also running face to face training and mentoring teaching property development strategies and skills through my company Developer Network Pty Ltd.

If you would like to learn property development or perhaps even join the elite Financial Freedom Club then I invite you to come to one of our meetup events / webinars / training sessions / or even give me a call to discuss how I may be able to be of assistance.

To your success.
