Investment Property Vlogs
| Joyce – Client since 2013
My husband and I met Lynne at a Seminar in 2015. Her formula around investing and her advice on how to structure a property portfolio resonated well with us.
Lynne offers a genuine mentor program. We were at the cross roads wanting to upgrade our family home and still be able to invest using property as our future. We wanted a 5 – 10 year plan, so we joined her mentor program and booked our first meeting with her a few weeks later.
We had already been looking at properties and in fact had put down a $1,000 deposit before meeting with Lynne. We were not sure if it was going to meet our requirements and wanted further endorsement. During the mentor session, Lynne looked over the plans and agreed that the floor plans looked good, but the developer was unknown to her. She used her contacts and did some research, only to find that the Developer had an exceedingly bad reputation of building poorly constructed and inferior products.
Shattered, that we were back to the drawing board and relieved at the same time. Lynne went to work in understanding our requirements and after some research came up with a townhouse in Ascot Vale that ticked all our boxes. The developer was well known in the industry with an outstanding reputation for design, construct and finishes and Lynne had had prior experience working with him.
It was so much fun, because Lynne arranged for the builder to meet us on site. We stood on a vacant block, and used Lynne’s ute as our work table and the builder ran over all of the aspects of the property and we made a few small changes. It was the most personal and helpful service we had ever experienced.
How lucky are we. We didn’t have to stand at auctions week in week out getting disappointed. Lynne negotiated hard for us and we couldn’t be happier.
We now have the home that we wanted and at a great price. During the meeting we met with Simon Birch from Sandridge Finance who organised our loan without a problem. The whole process has been smooth and not stressful at all.
Lynne is not only a great negotiator and very knowledgeable in property investments but most of all she is caring and the advice that she gives is always to put her clients needs first.
Now that we have our new home we look forward to working with Lynne in buying our first investment property in the near future.
