134 | From The Screaming Jets to Rock-tioneer! How this 90’s Music Icon went from Playing the Drums to Building a Property Portfolio – Chat with Craig “Rosie” Rosevear

Alright folks: what does the drummer from The Screaming Jets and property investment have in common?

Craig “Rosie” Rosevear!

That’s right—on The Couch today, the man behind the drums of one of Australia’ legendary bands explains how he used his royalties to break into the property market and transformed his touring days into a growing property portfolio and now, a charismatic, auctioning career! Yep. Aside from being the Founder of Rock Your Future and the owner of Rosie’s School of Rock—where he and his wife, Belinda, motivate and educate young people to be confident in both music and life—Craig is also an auctioneer at Cooley Auctions, winner of the Newcastle Heat of the Real Estate Institute of NSW Auctioneering Competition and a property investor with a knack for DIY renovating!

 

No stranger to hard work, Craig explains:

  • Firstly, what life is really like as a rock star!
  • How invaluable a good work ethic is, and how he managed to maintain it, despite fame and, well, being a rock star
  • Why he used his royalties to buy his first investment property
  • What he discovered about investing with equity that changed his way of thinking
  • How he became a borderless investor in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney
  • Ways to get around Sydney’s Housing Affordability
  • First Home Buyer mistakes and DIY renovation tips
  • How he got into auctioneering (it has something to do with Episode 121 with Damien Cooley)
  • The similarities between being a rock star & an auctioneer (“Rocktioneer”)
  • Investing in Newcastle, NSW
  • Things buyers should do at an auction
  • Business acumen tips from rock band KISS (!)

 

And (we had to ask), what is Craig’s “go to” rock star story? The unexpected, sneak peek into what Muso life was like …

He tells us right at the end—of course he did.

What an absolute pleasure!

 

 

128 | How a Country Boy Went From a Butcher to Property Success – Chat with Duncan McPherson, Director of Nelson Alexander

That’s right guys. Duncan McPherson, Director at Nelson Alexander (also a successful property consultant, auctioneer, founder of Nelson Alexander Charitable Foundation and a property investor himself) started his roots in a small country town as, well, a butcher. Yep—his story is absolutely a white-butcher’s-coat to wealth-building-creation!

Duncan is a family man, centred on honest and committed customer service, who has built his riches on sharing what he knows and paying it forward, giving almost $2.5 million dollars to local charities in the process.

On the couch to share his wisdom, humbleness and good humour with the boys, Duncan explains:

  • How he came to Melbourne as a butcher and ended up as highly-successful real estate figure
  • Why one man in a black BMW, a shiny suit and a bad attitude was likely the catalysis for his career change
  • How Nelson Alexander, since 1971, has transformed the face of real estate services, especially in the Northern suburbs
  • How he approaches property investment with 20+ years’ experience
  • What are his criteria for a successful asset selection?
  • Which one is a “better” investment: a house or a townhouse?
  • What “buying land and airspace” means and how you can value from it
  • What is “The Beef Wellington” to add value to your property?
  • What to look for in a quality real estate agent and how to outsmart them
  • How many off-market properties exist without you even knowing they’re For Sale? (Hint: it’s more than you think!)
  • The inevitability of housing affordability—has it always been tough breaking into the market?
  • When will he consider buying a property with someone else?
  • What he looks for in an investment property and what always impresses him
  • The mentors who have changed and continue to change his life.

 

We really, really think you’ll benefit from this one guys. It’s one thing to hear tips from the best in the business; but another thing entirely to hear it from someone who made it there from the humblest of beginnings!
