PIT 7: How We Purchased 10 Properties with Donna Oakley-Davies and Brad Davies

Donna and Brad aren’t your typical married couple. Between them, they have 10 properties in Australia (plus one in England). It wasn’t always the plan to accrue so much real estate. 

Their respective upbringings encouraged very different strategies, including preserving cash, investing in shares, and buying big toys like boats and cars. 

But Donna and Brad have bucked the trend and instead forged ahead with an impressive portfolio that today has them in the 1% club of Australian investors who own more than 3 pieces of real estate.
