Paul Glossop on the key attributes of successful property investors

If you want to know what it takes to be a successful property investor, you can’t miss this interview with Paul Glossop. Paul really walks his talk.

In many respects Paul is very much like KnowHow founder Bushy Martin’s long lost much younger brother – they both had similar interests like fitness and architecture, and they’ve both followed similar paths to help them both enjoy a great lifestyle from property investments. This led both to help others to do the same through books and businesses – the only difference being that Paul focusses on helping you buy property as a buyer’s agent while Bushy and his team focus on finance structure and property strategy.

But it hasn’t always been that way for Paul – a bit more than a decade or so ago he was broke, out of a job and in debt.

Now, he’s basically retired in his mid 30s and since that time has acquired 17 properties worth almost $9 million.

And like Bushy, Paul also believes you and anyone can do the same if you apply the same mindset.

He took a calculated risk when he walked away from a successful corporate career to start something that he was really passionate about: helping others change their lives through investing in property.

And the good news for you is that Paul’s approach is actually quite simple and straightforward.

He believes the mark of financial success isn’t about getting bigger, better, faster or more. To him, success is freedom – freedom to spend more time with his family, giving to others, and of course, more time to go surfing!

And as an avid surfer, Paul knows that property investing is like catching the perfect wave break.

It is what led to the title of his highly acclaimed, best selling book:

A Surfer’s Guide to Property Investing: How to Achieve your Financial Goals and Lead your Best Life through Investing in Property

He’s now Managing Director of his own buyer’s agency Pure Property Investment, and a board member of PIPA – the Property Investment Professionals of Australia.

Over the last 10 years Paul has been involved in more than 500 property transactions for clients and has seen the right and wrong way to surf the property wave.

During this great chat that is jam packed with investment gold, you’ll learn:

  • What mindset you need to be successful
  • The three critical keys to be successful in property investment in order to achieve your lifestyle goals
  • The advantages of building and developing property
  • The massive benefits of rentvesting
  • And why you should have a property focussed accountant and a professional buyer’s agent on your team, and how to pick a good one

Now, like our view of long term successful investing, if you hang in till the end of this episode to reap the rewards, Paul’s made a very generous offer for a limited number of listeners and Bushy is going to double down on his offer by also gifting you a copy of his second book ‘Get Invested’.

Just email Bushy the words ‘A Surfer’s Guide to Property Investing’ along with the exact number of copies Paul mentions at the end of the show to [email protected] with your name, number and contact details.
