Chris Gray

$5,000-$10,000
Australia - NSW

Chris Gray inspires individuals with the thought that to make real wealth you need to do the complete opposite to what everyone else is doing.

At the age of 22 Chris Gray began his journey investing in real estate with a deposit of $35,000. By age 31, Chris had turned his initial deposit into a $3.5m property portfolio and left his full-time job as an accountant at Deloitte's for semi-retirement. Since then he has more than tripled his personal portfolio to well over $10m and now builds property portfolios for time-poor professionals through his Buyers Agency 'Empire', searching, negotiating and renovating on their behalf.

Chris is a regular presenter on Channel 9's Sky Business News 'Your Money Your Call' and features in major business press and newspapers. He was also the Property Expert on Channel 9's 'MyHome' and most recently seen on '60 Minutes' and guest judge on Channel 10's 'The Renovators'.

In his highly sought after presentations, Chris explains why...

  • A higher income will not make you rich
  • Property investment does not mean sacrificing lifestyle
  • Leveraging your equity is the key to financial independence
  • Essential criteria for choosing an investment property that outperforms

Audience members also receive a copy of Chris' highly successful book 'The Effortless Empire', showing you how you can leverage your salary and your equity to achieve financial independence through property.
