Ex-professional dancer goes from Swan Lake to transforming ugly ducklings

By Todd Stevens 11 March 2019 | 1 minute read

Allie and Oliver purchased their first investment property six years ago at under market value and transformed what they refer to as an “ugly duckling” into a sound investment. With a growing portfolio and a passion for renovations, the pair now admit to being “addicted” to property investment.

Allie and Oliver,

In this episode of the Smart Property Investment Show, they join host Phil Tarrant to reflect on their journey, revealing what got them started, how their strategy has changed over the years, and why they are now sent on a renovate-and-hold strategy.

They will share how they split the tasks required to keep their portfolio thriving, why their next property purchase will be different to what they have done so far, and Allie discusses her past life as a professional ballerina.
