'The End Result Was An Apartment Of High Calibre In A High Growth Area...'

'I am an expat in Qatar and wanted to increase my property portfolio. I was interested in purchasing an apartment in Darwin as the property cycle was rising and returns were good. Logistically, it was near impossible for me to do this by myself because of distance and time involved. I decided to engage Tod Peterson to be my advocate after a number of discussions with him. Tod advised me that it was good buying in the $500,000 bracket with returns above 6%.

We worked on that as our criteria. With Tod's local knowledge and experience in the industry, we secured a property in a relative short amount of time. The end result was an apartment of high calibre, larger than most, in a high growth area. On top of that, we secured a furniture package at a considerably reduced rate, and found a tenant before settlement. I am now the owner of a property that provides a 6.2% yield. Overall, the experience was positive. I have no hesitation in recommending Tod Peterson's services for those who have time constraints, commitments elsewhere, lack of local knowledge or access to a network system of industry contacts' - Craig Field
