Chris Gray, Property expert and CEO of Empire
Chris Gray is Australia’s most recognised property expert. He is the host of “Your Money, Your Call” on Sky Business News on Friday nights, a qualified accountant, buyers’ agent and mortgage broker and CEO of Empire which builds property portfolios for time poor professionals. Chris frequently comments on market news and trends in major print, broadcast and online media.
At age 22 Chris worked out that a three-bedroom house was cheaper to own than a one-bedroom unit. His mortgage repayments were more than his income even before tax, but having two tenants meant that he could live almost rent free. At 23 he bought his third property, then his fourth, fifth and sixth properties. By age 31, Chris had turned his initial $35,000 deposit into a $3.5m property portfolio and left his full-time job at Deloitte’s for semi-retirement. Chris, 38, has since tripled his personal portfolio to well over $10m.
Chris can clearly explain how it is possible for people to build a property portfolio of their own. He can provide advice on overcoming past setbacks and can
clearly outline how to maximise equity in existing properties and can provide tips on building a portfolio without having to rely on wages to fund it. His positive outlook and great results inspires others to set similar targets and build their own investment strategy.
