Introducing the property investment workshop

Where do you get unbiased information and education about investing in property without the risk of being 'sold to' by companies with a vested interest in spruiking their scheme or development project?

There are plenty of good and not so good 'property seminars' that are nothing more than dressed up sales pitches.

That's why this program has been put together, to help you navigate the world of investing in property, to get high quality, up to date, relevant information from professionals who work with property on a daily basis.

The presenters are local to the South East Queensland. They are business owners who provide the best advice to clients on various aspects of property and investing.

They all run their own businesses which are independent from each other, and will provide teaching and education from their own experience and knowledge.

This is one of very few independent property investment workshops providing real education, practical examples and real advice for people dipping their toe in to buy their first investment property to seasoned investors looking to expand their portfolio in today's economomy.

There is no one right strategy for all

You will learn about a range of property investing options from new builds, townhouses to apartments, beachfront to hinterland and a lot more in between.

You will get enough information to help you formulate a plan that is perfect for your lifestyle, financial position, stage in life and goals.

The presenters will be available for you to ask questions and help you get clarity to move forward with confidence rather than guesswork.

Once you decide to become a property investor, you need to think about what structure is bust to buy it in. Should it be in joint names, in a company, in a trust, can you use a self-managed super fund, what happens if one person dies, and so much more.

That's why there are a range of presenters from professional investors, lawyers and accountants through to property managers, trust specialists and insurance brokers.

All of the presenters will help you put together the various pieces of the property investing puzzle so you do it right from the start and build a solid sustainable, profitable property portfolio now and through to retirement.

There is more to property than just buying one

An in-depth workshop

To ensure you walk away with a tonne of incredibly helpful and useful information, this is not just an introduction with a 5 minute summary from all of the speakers.

There will be an number of specialist speakers who will really deliver the detail you need to help you make good decisions and take the right actions.

There will be information provided which you can take away and use as you start looking for property that fits your criteria and meets your goals.

You will be able to ask questions and ensure you have a thorough understanding of each presenter's topic.

You won't find another pure property education workshop quite like this.

Bugwash Property helped us get our super into an SMSF fund, and then invest in a residential property.


It was something we didn’t even think we could do given our super balances - we just didn’t think we had enough. So we were over the moon with being able to invest in property, that we know will give us a result rather then it pretty much doing nothing in our standard funds. I can’t recommend them more highly.


David, Brian, Glenn and the whole team were absolutely awesome. Top notch service and support.

How To Select The Right Property, In The Right Place At The Right Time And Do Better Than Any Other Investment Class.

David has been investing in property since 2004 and has built a successful career as a property investor, a mentor and a property coach.

He has always believed in the principle of never suggesting an excellent location to anyone unless he's prepared to invest in the same area personally, and has always stuck by the principle of walking the walk and not just talking the talk.

David finds it such a pleasure to be able to work with so many amazing people and to share with them his knowledge and experience.

Bugwash Property is the best job in the world for David as he gets to help hundreds upon hundreds of people improve their financial position through bricks and mortar investments in high growth locations, and he feels so proud of every one of them as he watches them succeed.

How to invest successfully to grow worth & to contribute to the wider community.

Brian's background is building and construction with over 32 years working in the property and construction industry.

Now, Brian gets to look after all of Bugwash Property's amazing clients, making sure they get more value than they ever expected.

One of the things he really loves about his job, is knowing that for every house they build, so much is contributed back into the community.

Together with their clients, millions of dollars are being directed back into these communities through infrastructure & development, creating hundreds of jobs.

The best part is that they get to build homes and provide housing for people that are not in a position to be able to do it for themselves. He gets such an amazing feeling knowing how many people they help along the way.

Depreciation & Unlocking the tax refund potential in your investment property

A property that produces income will decrease in value over time as buildings and assets on that property wear out, a process called depreciation.

As a property owner you are entitled by the ATO to claim the expense of depreciation over the years as a tax deduction.

Tax depreciation enhances the value of your investment by putting more money in your pocket when you receive your tax return.

On average for a new property, you can expect to reduce your tax assessable income by up to $15,000 in the first full financial year.

Discover how to minimise your tax and get an even higher ROI by Investing In Property

It is about more than just a tax refund!

There are many tax advantages to investing in property, such as tax deductions. Many of these items are hidden in legislation and regulations that most people have access to readily.

A good accountant will set up your financial system to maximise your tax position, ensure you are spending in the right areas to give you a return, and even things like how to get maximum tax benefits for all members of your family, rather than just the person who signed the mortgage documents.

Highly recommend the team at Bugwash. As a real estate agent and active investor I’m always looking to surround myself with a team of professionals.

David, Brian and Glenn (at their team) at Bugwash Property are truly world class. I've been investing in property for years, but have NEVER come across such a passionate, committed and experienced group that do it all for you.


I love the fact that I can leverage their combined depth of experience that would take many lifetimes to generate. Whenever a problem arises, they troubleshoot it for you before you even knew it was an issue.


I've been investing with them for over a year, I've been blown away by the strong capital growth and positive cash returns I've seen. We have another property on the way with them and I intend to invest with them for the foreseeable future.


Can't recommend these guys enough, each one of them are bloody legends.

I am forever grateful for the opportunities that David & Brian provide for me and it amazes me how selfless the guys really are. They always put their clients first and always give us the best of the best when it comes to property investing.

The lending, build and tenanting process was seamless. Completely stress free because everybody involved knows what they are doing and strive to provide good service. The most important aspect of all however, is the mindset and financial intelligence that david and glen help u develop, and the habits you begin to apply that direct u away from ordinary thinking.


Thank u david and glen for helping me believe that I am capable of having a go at property investment. The mentoring and guidance has been invaluable as an amateur investor who always wanted to have a go but didn't have the confidence. Really comfortable with the guidance and experience you provide.


For anybody who is similar to me who wants to have a go but doesn't have the confidence or guidance I recommend u talk to david and glen who can show u how to reach your full potential. Thanks again fella's
