In this episode of the Smart Property Investment Show, Penelope joins host Phil Tarrant to share her tips for others considering adding commercial investment to their property portfolio, unpack the processes in place in her investment syndicate, and discuss how that style of investing has worked for her.

She explains how she invests through her SMSF, why she chooses to self-manage that fund and how impending changes may impact one of her properties which is regularly rented through short-term rental site Airbnb.
