What we're about
The Brisbane Property Meeting Group was created by property investors to provide opportunities for like-minded investors to get together and learn from each other, share ideas and exchange contacts in a relaxed social environment.
Who is the Brisbane Property Meeting Group?
The Brisbane Property Meeting group is part of a national group (PropertyMeeting.com.au) and each state hosts local meetings run by experienced property investors with a passion for supporting others. The Brisbane Property Meeting group was started in 2011 and is currently run by Simon Honywood.
Who is Simon Honywood?
Simon was born in the UK and grew up knocking around old buildings, then working as a heritage planner in London before moving to the Antipodes and, ultimately settling in Brisbane. He supplemented his town planning experience with a stint as a landscape architect, having worked in consultancies and state and local governments in both capacities.
While Simon and Sheila previously had buy and hold properties, they got a real taste for property investing and development when they did a combined subdivision and removal home project in 2007. Since then, they have been involved in renovation projects and more subdivisions.
Simon chucked in his day job in 2016 to pursue property investing and development full time, boosted considerably by some excellent guidance from RESULTS and other coaches over the last few years.
Having worked on both sides of the fence, Simon is keen to ensure that others can benefit from the incredible body of knowledge that is out there and to ensure that others can also get the generous support that fellow property investors and professionals can offer those on their own property journeys.
Who should attend these meetings?

What is the purpose of these meetings and why should you attend?
The purpose of the meetings is education and networking. You will not be sold to in the meetings. If you like what is presented you may ask to get more information from the presenter. I invite experts in their respective property field of expertise such as architects, land surveyors, real estate agents, home staging experts, etc plus other investors to share their deals with the group.

The Brisbane Property Meeting group is a place where you can come and meet other like minded property investors in a to safe environment where you can ask any question you like. I recommend reading a lot of books and networking and speaking to other investors, and if you enjoy this sort of environment, then you will really enjoy the group.
Property investing is so much more than buying a house and renting it out for 10 years waiting for it to go up in value. The best way to find out about investing is to come and listen to active investors who are doing the deals and making money in today's market. What are you looking to find, from the group (e.g. learn skills, network, finance JV partners, money partners, etc)
As the group leader, I am keen to help others get started in property investing, or move to the next level of their investing. As a property investor, there is much to learn, and the people you meet play a big role in your investing journey.
Networking is an important part of investing - you never know who you meet who might give you an idea for your next property deal, or who might be your next joint venture partner or money partner. So come along and see who you might meet.
