Director and Founder
Aus Property Professionals director Lloyd Edge is a passionate buyer's agent who works on behalf of buyers, not sellers. He holds a Diploma of Property Services, has real estate licences in NSW and Queensland and is a member of Property Investment Professionals Australia (PIPA).
Lloyd has a thorough knowledge of the Sydney and Brisbane property markets as well as key regional areas including Newcastle, Wollongong and the Central & South Coasts.
In 15 years as a property investor and developer, Lloyd has accumulated a $7 million (and growing!) portfolio that turned a profit of more than $500,000 in just the past two years. He has personally invested in Sydney, Brisbane, Ipswich, Newcastle, Toowoomba and Armidale amongst other areas and won't recommend a property to a client unless he would buy it himself.
Lloyd has developed a diverse property portfolio of blue chip, middle and outer ring, and dual income properties (duplexes) that pays for itself.

Lloyd has a diverse range of investment strategies and places importance on achieving equity gains to maintain a cash flow positive portfolio, quintessential to portfolio growth. Some of his more sophisticated strategies allow him to "manufacture" equity without having to wait for the market to rise.
Previously Lloyd was a teacher who achieved financial independence through property, allowing him to retire from the rat race. With property being his passion, he now does it full time.
Lloyd helps clients design a property portfolio that will help them achieve financial independence. He sets clients a strategy clearing defining what type of properties will help them reach their financial and lifestyle goals. He then acquires the appropriate properties for these clients based on the clients strategy and financial briefs.
Lloyd’s property investment motto is "You make your money when you buy, not when you sell!”. He has helped numerous clients make a large amount of equity in a short amount of time by buying well located property, under market value as well as building and developing to create immediate equity.
He uses a range of strategies targeted to specific situations, including:
The process used by Lloyd and his team involves conducting thorough research on each property including building and pest inspections, analysis of the neighbourhood, proximity to local transport, shops, education, employment opportunities, rental returns, vacancy rates and comparisons to similar properties in the area.
Lloyd also specialises in duplexes. Find out more here.
Working as a buyers agent and property developer, Lloyd loves to help other people replicate his success.
“Property became my passion when I realised that it can be a vehicle to financial independence,” he says.
“Achieving equity gains while maintaining cash flow is essential to portfolio growth and ultimate financial independence.
“I use strategies that are designed to create equity regardless of how the property market is performing. It is important that each property you buy sets you up so you can buy another property almost immediately".
“More than anything, I love to use my knowledge and proven strategies to help others to achieve their financial and lifestyle goals.”
Lloyd has a teaching background. His educational skills and excellent communication techniques prove invaluable to clients. He has worked in a number of areas of education across Sydney and now uses his experience to educate people about property and how it can set them on the path to financial freedom.

Aus Property Professionals Buyers Agents will set you a clear property investment strategy and then conduct thorough research on each property including analysis of the neighbourhood, proximity to local transport, shops, cafes & restaurants, education, employment opportunities, present and future infrastructure, rental returns, vacancy rates, and comparisons to similar properties in the area. We also look for ways to add value to each property through buying under market value, undertaking a renovation, completing a subdivision or building a duplex.
If an immediate equity gain of over $100,000 sounds appealing, then building a duplex can do exactly that!
That kind of equity gain can help you to buy another property almost immediately, accelerating your investment property portfolio growth. It is also a fantastic way to work towards owning the home of your dreams. We will set you up with a strategy to work towards these goals. Find out more about how to build a duplex.
