“I was bitten by the property bug, there was no turning back.”
Jo Chivers proves that women can indeed have it all- a career that you are passionate about and a family. While all of this sounds great, it does require hard work, dedication, perseverance and a bit of risk-taking.
Jo’s love of property development inspired her to leave her corporate career and pursue her true passion. After educating herself in property investing, she started building up her own property portfolio. After purchasing a few blue chip properties in Sydney, she soon realised how negatively geared they were and began researching outside of Sydney.

Last week I presented the pros and cons of Strata vs. Torrens Title subdivision for a dual occupancy project.
“Hey Jeff, just wanted to let you know that I’ve transferred some money into my super account, can you tell me the best place to invest it right now within the fund?”
Property developing can be very rewarding and can also be overwhelming, especially if you are building in an area that you are unfamiliar with for your first development.
This week I created a system. My aim was simple; to achieve more in less time.
