PIT 84: Back to Basics

Welcome to Property Investor Tales. Stories from the front yard where we get to speak with people across Australia about their property journey. My name is Vicki Hines and I’m one of the coaches at positive real estate where I help people build wealth through property. With over 8000 clients across Australia and New Zealand. There are some amazing stories to tell, which hopefully will help make your investing journey just that little bit easier, and will help inspire you along the way.


Today I have the privilege of speaking with Justin and Sylvia Ridgeway. They have been invested in real estate for 13 years, but have only been the most active over the last few years. They joined Positive Real Estate back in 2020. I’ve asked them to come along today to share some of the knowledge that they’ve acquired along the way, and the learnings that they’ve experienced, which should help people just starting out as well as some that are already halfway through their investing journey. Enjoy this conversation between myself Justin and Sylvia.
