    Read the comments of his facebook ads - his demeanour is loud and clear ;)

    It says he aims to deliver a million properties, not own.
    Through his course, others will build or convert them.

    I have attended his one day pre sales seminar ..

    He is not a scammer but a very good spruiker with some interesting sales tactics...

    For example he starts crying during the free seminar on at least 4 occasions ... I guess anything for a quick bucks .. I don’t know how crying helps his sales but apparently it does help

    I don’t see a reason why anyone should pay for this course as there are better options for roi... however each to their own...

    He's quite erm... emotionally unstable perhaps. I paid for his program a while back, couldn't get any response to my questions for weeks after posting as per his request on his group FB page. I politely PMd him a reminder, and the response blew me away. Very arrogant brush off referring me back to his FB page, and when I politely challenged him he called me "passive aggressive" and actually blocked me on FB. I mean wtf. Got my money back thank goodness. Not at all normal, particularly given I'd paid a few grand for his course.

    :eek: Wowsers that's nuts! You'd think he'd treat his clients like gold.

    He did this in the seminar I went to. There was a moment where he was recounting some story of his past and he got all choked up, put his head down and pinched his nose like he was really struggling with it.

    It seemed fake and out of nowhere, like it was acted. Really didn't sit well with me, and no wonder if this is a "tactic" he is using at multiple events!

    ellejay when you get back on his FB (I don't have FB) can you suggest " big is the new small" :)

    Big land holdings , big buildings great potential to exceed 20% net yields.

    I will post details (after settlement) of the third deal my mate has done (2 already posted already) 0-$700k pa net rental (profit 75% of this) in 12mths . All big land holdings and large buildings.

    He blocked me on FB after I got my refund like the small is the new big man that he is. Common Narcissists' tactic when things aren't going their way I've found.

    I agree with a lot of the comments here ppl have said and I asked Ian the question how long before market is saturated with them, and everyone that heard my question was like oh yeh aka the penny dropped.

    You can only do these sorts of things just like granny flats in certain areas to get the full benefit. I recall one BA suggesting to do it in Bendigo to get massive return but need to fork out 30k for conversion for that particular property. Now if you wanted to sell it who will buy it unless you turn it back to a normal home, or sell it cheaper to get an investor as if its a crappy market why would you buy it other than for cashflow. Also Came across another bloke doing it in WA in places further out like reallyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
