I’ve had the good fortune to work alongside Jason Whitton for the better part of 15 years. As the founder of Positive Real Estate, Jason has overseen more than 8000 Aussies and Kiwis purchase thousands of properties.
He’s seen the ups and downs, the panics and the patience. He’s seen manic capital growth and instant market downturns (like the GFC and 2017’s APRA changes).
What type of mindset does it take to whether the market fluctuations, not just for your own portfolio but for thousands of clients? How does Jason deal with problems when they seem all too overwhelming? And what does he think new investors can do to get a head start today?
All that and more is in this jam-packed-full-of-wisdom conversation with Jason Whitton.
