From Going Solo to Teamwork Investing with Kathy Petoumenos
Kathy had purchased her own home and an investment property in Sydney.

With a portfolio that now includes Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, Kathy shares her self-doubts, fears and lessons from her investment journey to date.

This is a story of courage and bravery. Of how naivety can lead to expensive mistakes (see margin loans being called on) to having the grit and determination to see it through to the end. Helen and Ian Morse have ridden this very rollercoaster, and whilst there’s a lot of heartache in the story, it has a very happy ending, with the couple’s financial independence allowing them to travel the world for over 12 months - with more bucket list dreams to come.
Retired by 50 with Sharen Carruthers
Sharen Carruthers had a goal to invest in real estate and be retired by 50. She achieved her life’s dream with two weeks to spare, and then did as many retired people do. She travelled the world to all the places she wanted to. She gave her time to family and some business interests. And then ... she got bored.
This exciting, inspiring and enlightening conversation with Sharen demonstrates that sometimes our goals and dreams are there to open up a new possibility of what’s next. It’s not always the achievement of a goal that is the magic. It’s the opportunity that the achievement. And Sharen shares all of that on this episode of Property Investor Tales. Enjoy!

How We Purchased 10 Properties with Donna Oakley-Davies and Brad Davies
Donna and Brad aren’t your typical married couple. Between them, they have 10 properties in Australia (plus one in England). It wasn’t always the plan to accrue so much real estate.
Their respective upbringings encouraged very different strategies, including preserving cash, investing in shares, and buying big toys like boats and cars.
But Donna and Brad have bucked the trend and instead forged ahead with an impressive portfolio that today has them in the 1% club of Australian investors who own more than 3 pieces of real estate.
Enjoy this inspiring story.
