Propellor Property Investments

Your property investment journey with Propellor Property Investments

Where are you going in life, and how well are you prepared for the journey?

We're all headed in the same direction - towards retirement.

Some people will not have to worry about how to pay for their retirement, but they're the lucky few sitting in the first-class seats. The rest of us need a plan to set up a retirement income by making the most of the resources available to us.

And it needs to be set up now.

For many, the only form of currency available is the equity you have in your own home; and the only way to access that is to use it as leverage to investing in property.

Let Propellor Property Investments show you the way

With our help we are going to assist you (along with a team of professionals) in formulating and implementing a strategy that will provide a safety belt for you for the rest of your life, and maybe beyond. It works. And we will show you how it can work for you.

Trevor McGrathtrevor@propellorproperties.co.nz

Senior Property Strategist – Christchurch

Trevor joined Propellor Properties in 2011 when he returned to New Zealand after 30 years in Australia, where he worked as Sales Manager for a large property investment company.

Mike Hackettmike@propellorproperties.co.nz

Senior Property Strategist – Auckland

Mike has been a property investor for more than 25 years, originally purchasing 3 properties, one for each of his sons. At that time companies like Propellor were not around to give advice and support; consequently, he made many mistakes that ended up costing him money. He eventually got the correct structures in place. Mike has always had an infinity with Property Investment and had the opportunity to carry this through to a career path in 2001 when he was employed by a company that sold investment properties with Housing New Zealand leases attached. Mike has only worked for three companies over this seventeen year period and firmly believes that Propellor’s model is far superior to others and has far more benefits for the client.
