Aidan joins host Phil Tarrant on this episode of The Smart Property Investment Show to share his incredibly unique and challenging investment experience, including finding another Aussie who met the strict witness criteria, getting chased out of a hotel lobby for printing documents, and putting political pressure on the Australian government to be brought home.

The paramedic also explains how he developed an interest in property, why he chose this particular property as his first, and the pandemic-related difficulties he’s experiencing with the sitting tenant.
