In 2018 he received ‘Your Investment Property’ Top Buyers’ Agent award and Aus Property professionals, under Lloyd’s leadership was a finalist in the Real Estate Institute of NSW (REINSW) awards for best buyers’ agency. In 2017 Lloyd was also nominated as a finalist in the REINSW awards for excellence in the category of buyers’ agent.
In 17 years as a property investor and developer, Lloyd has accumulated a property portfolio worth over $12 million that is cash flow positive. A former teacher, Lloyd’s investment strategies allowed him to retire from the rat race and now he helps clients achieve their own financial and lifestyle goals.
Lloyd and his wife Renee have featured in property investment magazines including Australian Property Investor, Smart Property Investor and Your Investment Property, as well as The Daily Telegraph. Lloyd has also been interviewed on top rating radio stations 2GB and 2UE.
His investment strategies have attracted the attention of real estate commentators such as Kevin Turner of Real Estate Talk, Ryan McLean of onproperty.com.au and Aidan Devine of Key Media.
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. His strategies allow him to “manufacture” equity without having to wait for the market to rise.
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 period of time through creating instant equity.
He uses a range of strategies targeted to specific situations, including:
- Buy and hold for capital growth
- Buy for cash flow
- Buy below intrinsic value
- strata title
Many of the above strategies result in what is known as immediate equity gain. This means clients don’t need to wait for the property markets to increase in value before they realise an increase in equity/profit from their property.
Due to his wide range of contacts in the real estate industry, Lloyd gets access to properties before they are listed for sale, as well as “off market” properties which don’t go to the open market at all.
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”.
Having a teaching background, Lloyd’s 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.
