As one of four children in a family that struggled to make ends meet, he learned the value of money early in life and grew up with a keen desire to become wealthy. In 1982, he read the first BRW Rich 200 List and discovered that most of Australia’s wealthiest people either made or held their wealth in property. He began his real estate investment career at the age of nineteen and was a millionaire by the age of 28.
Craig had many early successes in property investment, followed by several setbacks. But rather than treat these as negative events, he re-adjusted his approach and turned them into the learning opportunities that have led him to become known as a ‘property guru’. Craig discovered that he had a talent for sharing his property investment experiences, and in 2001 began his education company Property Millionaire Pty Ltd. Since then, he has taught thousands of people how to create wealth through real estate. Over the years the company has expanded into a boutique financial services group offering mentoring programs, finance broking and property-search services – it is now known as Aspire International.
Craig is the author of three national best-selling property investment books: It’s Easy to Invest in Property, It’s Easy to be a Property Millionaire and Unlimited Cashflow – It’s Easy to Make Money in Property. He is also an international keynote speaker on property investment and success motivation.
Craig lives in Perth with his partner and shares his weekends with his two sons. When he is not working, you’ll find him looking at property, at the beach or indulging his passion for travel.”
