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.
