PIT 48: First Investment To Retired in 10 Years, with Andre Scannell

Hello and Welcome to property investor tales, stories from the front yard. My name is Hayley Beavis and I am a property consultant here at Positive Real Estate where we help people build wealth through property.

My guest today is Andre Scannell.

Andre had a dream at 16 years old to own his own home mortgage free and have 4 investment properties.. Later in life, he smashed these goals and in just 10 short years retired on a canal near the beach! 


Andre has been working with investment coaches and mentors at Positive Real Estate since 2010. In this episode he shares the highs and lows, the lessons learned, and what differences he’s found in doing real estate investing by himself versus working with a team. 


We discuss – 


4:52 – What Andres goals were when he started investing in 2010. 


13:46 – Lessons learned


20:07 – The mistakes he made along the way


20:54 – Retiring much sooner than he thought he could and how


Enjoy this conversation with Andre.
