Geared for Growth is designed to assist Australian property investors to achieve financial freedom. The aim is to grab as many experts within the property investing space as possible and really tease apart their strategy and how they assist property investors to achieve financial freedom whether directly as buyers agents, or as expert accountants, brokers, conveyancer, whatever. We'll endeavour to cut through the sales pitches and get down to the nuts and bolts.
Episode 121 - Interview with Gilbert Melgar
We're interviewing Gilbert Melgar, founder of Suburbs Finder. Suburbs Finder is a platform that enables you to drill down across suburbs for properties that match your criteria i.e. minimum yield, number of bedrooms etc. We talk all about data and types of opportunities with boarding houses, and types of investments that he favours, and where he sees property investors getting it wrong.
Episode 120 - Interview with Brendan Clark
We interview Brendan Clark, who's the principal Buyers Agent and Founder of The Property Curator. Brendan comes from the finance world. And it won't take very long for you to understand how valuable that is when he's doing his due diligence on property. So we talk about how he creates a property strategy and why it's so important, how to avoid spruikers and making sure that you are being very targeted in the areas that you're looking at.
Episode 119 - Interview with Kent Lardner
We're talking to an absolute data genius, a man in rarefied air with his knowledge of property data analytics, machine learning, and the list goes on. He's worked for CoreLogic, for JLL, for PriceFinder. Kent Lardner is the founder of Suburb Trends and the co host of the Property Nerds podcast. We talked to Kent about property data, how to really look at statistically important data and the pitfalls in relying on things like medians when you're doing your analysis.
Episode 118 - Interview with Bushy Martin
We interview Bushy Martin, founder of Know How Property Finance and host of the Get Invested Podcast. We chat about his background and how he got involved in property. We discuss property strategy and why calculating what you want to achieve in property is more important than the individual properties in the portfolio itself. There's some good insights in creating a plan, the importance of having a structure and a strategy, and about the property being subservient to what you want to achieve in property.
Episode 117 - Interview with Two Drunk Accountants
We interview Tim Garth and Dan Osborne, the hosts of Two Drunk Accountants podcast. We had the pleasure of some time together, as we jumped on each other's podcast, they were kind enough to have me as a guest on the Two Drunk Accountants which was a great bucket list exercise for me. During my interview with them, we talked about how to select an accountant and the importance of having a property specialist, and everything you need to know about accounting as a property investor.
Episode 116 - Interview with Darren Piper
Darren Piper, founder of Universal Buyers' Agents who works between the Sunshine Coast through Brisbane and the Gold Coast. We ask him about his background in sales and what that taught him that he can utilise to advocate for the buyer. We take a dive into the local markets and the areas that Darren sees as having the best potential for capital growth. He gives some great advice for investors on value adding on purchasing properties that have got good upside potential and long term potential.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I find this podcast enjoyable and informative. One area of opportunity for Mike would be careful talking over the top of his guests, which he seems to do quite a bit.
This is a great podcast. Love the guests and info. In the podcast with Bushy Martin I could hear typing and mouse clicking in the background and the sound quality wasn’t amazing, which is a bit disappointing. Really like the podcast though
