Dani & Craig Skinner have an incredible life and investing story to tell. Dani was born in Ghana and grew up in Zimbabwe, and met Tahree-born Craig in Newcastle before they courted in Sydney, got married, and moved to Brisbane.
Before I knew of Dani and Craig, they had already purchased four investment properties. But they weren’t happy with their portfolio, which was a mix of older real estate in low performing areas. But having the wrong type of real estate didn’t stop Dani and Craig from keeping their eyes on the prize. Having felt like the bank “owned” them, Dani and Craig transformed their portfolio into higher performing assets and now have a sensational range of assets that is helping achieve their family, financial and lifestyle goals.
