Expert advisor on wealth creation through property
Chris Gray is Australia’s most recognised property expert. He is the host of “Your Money, Your Call” on Sky Business News on Friday nights, was the property expert on Channel 9’s My Home TV from 2007 – 2008 and is frequently called upon to provide opinion and commentary on market news and trends in national print media. He is also a qualified accountant, buyers’ agent and mortgage broker.
At the age of 22 Chris worked out that a three-bedroom house was cheaper to own than a one bedroom unit. His mortgage repayments were more than his income even before tax, but having two tenants meant that he could live almost rent free. At 23 he bought his third property, then his fourth, fifth and sixth properties. By age 31, Chris had turned his initial $35,000 deposit into a $3.5m property portfolio and left his full-time job at Deloitte’s for semi-retirement. Chris, 38, has since quadrupled his personal portfolio to well over $15m.
Chris is now CEO of his property portfolio company Empire, which searches, negotiates and renovates properties on behalf of time-poor professionals. His positive outlook and great results inspires others to set similar targets and build their own investment strategy.
Chris can clearly explain how it is possible for people to build a property portfolio of their own. He can provide advice on overcoming past setbacks and can clearly outline how to maximise equity in existing properties and can provide tips on building a portfolio without having to rely on wages to fund it.

Chris is the absolute guru of leverage. Every time I chat to Chris he makes me change the way I look at the world. His advice on investing and leverage is some of the best I have ever come across. Also his ability to communicate and take complex principles and make them simple is astonishing (in fact makes me jealous). On top of this he is a great guy and a pleasure to deal with
