RICHARD SHEPPARD

Chief Property Investment Advisor
A Little About Me

Richard is the founder and Managing Director of inSynergy Property Wealth Advisory.

Deeply passionate about property investment, Richard began investing in property at the age of 21 and owned six properties by the time he was 30.

After a 13-year career as an officer in the Australian Defence Force his passion for real estate sowed the seed for his career in property investment.

Years of working with some of Australia’s leading financial services providers coupled with experience gained from his own property investment journey led Richard to develop a science of optimising investment returns from property while minimising risk – something unique in a cluttered marketplace of brokers and ‘spruikers’.

Richard and the inSynergy team have now worked with hundreds of investors to help them make more money from property with less risk. As Chief Property Investment Advisor, Richard works with investors to formulate their property investment strategy, develop sophisticated borrowing structures and source property stock that meets inSynergy’s strict risk-adjusted criteria.

A regular columnist for Peninsula Living magazine on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and North Shore, Richard is widely recognised as one of the industry’s thought leaders.

EDWARD REAVY

Property Investment Specialist
A Little About Me

Growing up, Edward watched his father build a strong property portfolio. Seeing the freedom property provided planted the seed for his future.

His father once told him, “don’t work for money, have money work for you”. It was this piece of advice that assisted Edward in travelling the world while his tenant paid for the experience.
His travels ultimately led him to call Australia home where property investing has evolved from a hobby into his passion and a wealth creation vehicle. It’s now a fundamental part of Edward’s everyday life and forms the foundations for his role as a Property Investment Specialist at inSynergy.

Edward’s passion and love for property investment continues to allow him to share his knowledge and empower others to actively grow their personal wealth through property investment.

If he’s not talking about property, you will find him trying to master the game of golf!
