"I grew up with a father who loved tools and a mother who instilled in me a passion for leaving things better than I find them. This turned out to be a useful background for a renovator."
Welcome! My name is Joanne and I have invested in real estate in the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia.
I also have experience in developing real estate, including the restoration of a period home; extension and renovation of a farm house; construction of a new country residence (featured in Architect Designed Houses magazine published by the Royal Australian Institute of Architects); subdivision of both rural and suburban properties and strata titling.
In my days as a senior public servant, I accrued decades of experience in managing complex projects, sensitive programs and Regional Offices, with responsibility for budgets up to $30m.
My favourite investment strategy is to acquire well-priced residential property; renovate it to a high standard; add significant value; then sell for a profit or rent to provide a passive income stream.
I hope some of what I share will help you.
