One of Australia’s most highly respected financial and housing market analysts.

In his professional career, Pete qualified as a Chartered Accountant in London, and was previously a Director at the ‘Big 4’ accounting firm Deloitte.

Pete walks the talk when it comes to investing, and he gratefully parked his career in accountancy, having achieved financial independence at the age of 33, as detailed in his best-selling first book, Get a Financial Grip: a simple plan for financial freedom.

Pete is uniquely positioned to comment on housing markets as the co-founder of an active property buyer’s agency in Brisbane, combined with his unparalleled ability to deliver powerful, data-driven market analysis.

A 6-times published finance author, Pete runs a personal wealth coaching business, and is the co-host of the Australian Property Podcast.
