Property guru - Chris Gray

Everyone needs a Chris Gray in their corner. When Chris started building his empire he was just 22. By 23 he had three properties and by 31 he had turned his initial $35,000 deposit into a $3.5 million property portfolio. With a positive outlook and great results, Chris inspires others to set similar targets and build their own investment strategy. How? It is about a book.

The Effortless Empire: The Time-Poor Professional's Guide to Building Wealth from Property is a must read.

 Now 38, Chris is a leading property investor and expert - appearing regularly on Sky News Business Channel, A Current Affair and in newspapers and property magazines.  Chris has achieved financial independence by leveraging his properties and equity along the way.  In his highly motivating book, he shows how readers can do the same without increasing their salaries or sacrificing their lifestyles.

 The Effortless Empire takes readers through the step-by-step process of property investing, by:

  • motivating them to look at their time, salaries and lifestyles differently
  • Illustrating how property can provide the lifestyle people only dream about
  • comparing property with other forms of investment
  • comparing the various types of property investments
  • illustrating how they can make their portfolios profitable
  • showing them how to spend wisely
  • showing them how to begin.
"By the time my one-year-old son, Scott, turns 21; a two bedroom unit in Sydney will cost $4 million!  It's never too soon to start building your property empire," Chris says.  The Effortless Empire shows Australians how they can begin investing in property now, while it is still possible.
