Property Investing is a passion that has become a big part of our own and family lives. The best part of property investing is the extra time we can spend with the people we love.
We, Mark & Luke, the owners of Search Party Property, started our property buyers agency because we both: 1. Have a passion for property.
2. A strong drive to make property investing accessible to more people.
3. Saw this as an opportunity to leverage the experience and knowledge we have gained.
4. Like to take action and encourage others to take action.
We also get on very well and it felt like a very natural progression from where we were.
Experience 5 years experience in strata and facilities property management, property investor with over 30 properties (started investment journey in 2002), first time property investor coach.
Why I love property Bricks and mortar have proven to be a stable investment over time. I like that you touch it. It's something I know and it has helped me connect with so many great people.
My Wealth for What To have choices. To not be tied down to a corporate job. To have time to help others - my family, my friends and the community. The real riches of life.
Other Stuff I do I live with my wife Maria. We are in an apartment 7kms from Sydney CBD which we rent. I love the concept of Rentvesting. We can become tied to a home at the risk of not living. When I am not talking about property, which is rare, I volunteer at LifeLine once a week, I love running and run 7Kms everyday. I am a bit of a trivia buff. I also love travel and dabble in crypto currencies. A proud achievement was walking the Oxfam with my two brothers and sister and raising $80,000.
Experience 9 years Buyers Agent ‘on the ground’ experience and during this time has secured over 1000 properties for investors. He is also active property investor who lives in Queensland.
Why I love property It's fun. It let's me work outdoors. I meet heaps of great people. I also get to help people think about life differently once they start property investing.
My Wealth for What I feel like I am living it now. Property has enabled me to start a business, get my family involved and meet so many good people... all outside the office - which I absolutely love.
Other Stuff I do In my previous life I was a guitar teacher. I still love the guitar but don’t play as much as I would like. I live with my wife and four children on acreage in QLD, something I wouldn’t trade for city living. My morning 'wake up' catch-phrase to my children is 'Australia Needs You'... I like to have a bit of fun.
