I am the leading New Zealand Property Cycle Analyst with over 20 years hands on experience investing in the Auckland property market and helping people to profit from the property market. I’ve been called “the numbers man” for my penchant to run the numbers on a property deal anywhere, any time, whether that’s been on the back of a serviette in a cafe or to sign up a property deal on the bonnet of a car outside an open home. I’ve also been called “that property guy” by none other than Bill English himself whilst others have called me “Mr Property Cycle”.

Call me what you like, it makes no difference to my track record and results driven focus.

For more than 20 years I’ve been closely observing the cyclical nature of the Auckland property market,as a residential property investor, property investment mentor and subsequently property cycle analyst.

My added value proposition is simple and effective.

I share my knowledge and experience of creating value to help property investors and would be property owners to maximise the use of their resources and the current state of the property market to make better informed decisions.

It’s in my nature to help others, that’s just what I do.

To make decisions with their eyes wide open confident in the knowledge of understanding the nuances of the property cycle and market therefore gaining an insiders edge when making property decisions. I don’t teach people the basics of property investing there are plenty of good books you can read that will teach you those.

My role is to take your property investing to a different level, to break through the glass ceiling that’s in your way of achieving what you are truly capable of. Not only do I share with you what to do I show you too, because I’m doing the same things right now that led to my success 30 years ago but I’m better at it now and you can be too.

If you think you have no room to improve your property investing results that is a flawed view, I’ve proven it many times and now I’m in the process of proving it again. Not because I need to prove anything to anyone but because I enjoy the journey, the challenge to turn any problem into a solution. I’ve even created my own situations others may see as problems and then like Houdini I have emerged, from the box that others labelled as a problem, free from the shackles of circumstance.

I see opportunities where others see problems, and you can too.

As an accomplished author of several property cycle related books with over 10,000 copies, and hosting seminars and workshops since 1996 for many thousands of property investors, my role has also encompassed helping investors unveil the mindset and fortitude needed to underpin smart property decisions.


My vision is to add significant value to your property decisions and to improve your knowledge base and motivation to move you quicker to achieving your property goals. That’s what I’ve been doing successfully for decades and that’s what I can do for you.

Whether you are a seasoned investor or not you, like me, know that the better informed you are the better equipped you are to succeed.



My charitable nature combined with the need for a purpose greater than my self and the understanding of how important it is to balance business efforts with charitable efforts has empowered me to invest the last few years, using my honed teaching skills, improving English education facilities and teaching methods for over 1,000 Indian children at two relatively remote schools in Uttar Pradesh, Northern India.

In 2018 my charity focus shifts closer to home as I am investing time and effort Pro Bono into helping resolve the current housing crises for those who currently unable to help themselves. To this end I’m communicating with like minded and influential industry participants to collectively create a think tank to explore innovative solutions to help tackle Auckalnd’s widening housing gap, it’s in all of our interests to do so and besides it’s the humane thing to do, to invest part of our lives to help others less fortunate than ourselves. Do unto others.


Apart from helping thousands of property investors I have personally invested millions of dollars in Auckland property and made more than a small fortune, then walked away from it all, leaving it all behind to pursue a lifestyle of charity in India for a few years and now I’m back. I’m back equipped with a lot of new lessons and a broader view than before.

I’m back with a new expanded view of an old theme. I’ve learned in life to keep the lessons and forget the experiences, and there have been many significant lessons collected along the way of my property, business and personal journey’s.

You get the benefit of those lessons without having to walk through the valleys and along the roads that I have walked.

I’m back to repeat my winning formula that helped me buy my first property at the age of 24 even though at that time I had a $10,000 debt, no assets and no savings, and I did it on my own and you can too with the right mindset. You see it was the realisation through new knowledge that I was not limited by my circumstances but that I was limited by my own mindset that led me to breakthrough limiting beliefs at such a young age to first invest in property.

That first property created the financial foundation that led to making a healthy 6 figure profit within a decade which in turn empowered me to leave my day job and start my first business in 1996 centered on my passion for property.

Then I reinvested the business profits I was making to again start building a property portfolio. I went on to create a dozen companies supporting other property investors to also overcome their limitations, achieve multidimensional growth, achieve their financial goals and materialise their lifestyle dreams. At the same time I trained many dozens of staff in my businesses who went on to create their own successful businesses too.
