A vibrant and critical sector for creating wealth for Australians, the property investment sector is expected to remain a pillar to the national economy.

For nearing a decade, under Phillip’s stewardship Smart Property Investment has been informing and educating property investors on the tactics and strategies to create wealth through property.

Trusted by over 100,000 Australians each month as the turn-to independent resource for property market insights and information, the brand supports the mantra of "for investors", by investors’, drawing on the unique position that Phillip and Smart Property Investment share, warts and all, its own journey through property.

The Smart Property Investment Show, part of the Smart Property Investment Podcast Network, is one of Australia’s most popular podcasts, forming the keystone of an integrated digital platform delivering daily property updates, live broadcasting, insights, opinion and data to property investors across the nation.

Underpinned by a content team universally recognised for their knowledge of the sector and approach for clear and concise communication, Smart Property Investment has become a central part of Australia’s property community.
