10 properties in 6 years – how this elite sportsman will create a passive income

In this episode of The Smart Property Investment Show, we’re given a rare insight into the investment portfolio of Australian cricketer, Stephen O’Keefe.

Elite sports. It takes a lot of time and effort to get to the top, and the base salary mightn’t be anything special, but when a win comes through, it can feel like you’ve won the lottery.

When a young Stephen O’Keefe found himself pocketing $100,000 in winnings, he couldn’t believe his luck. Like most men in their mid-twenties, his thoughts immediately turned to the lavish lifestyle perks such a payout could afford, with a new luxury car at the top of the list.

But a combination of factors stopped him from blowing it all, and turned his focus to property investment instead.


Six years later, and with a portfolio of 10 properties to his name, Stephen shares the highs and lows of his investment story with @philliptarrant and Sterling Publishing’s group publisher, Alex Whitlock.

What was the motivation behind Stephen’s foray into property investment, how was he able to avoid the temptation to splash his earnings living life in the fast lane, and what would he change if he had his time over?
