Qualified Property Investment Advisor
Joel is a Qualified Property Investment Advisor (QPIA) at Empower Wealth. He has a history in Project Management, holding a Certificate IV in the field, and is an avid musician.
From Hobart, Joel took the opportunity to relocate to Melbourne in 2009. He was referred to a property investment company by a good friend and that was when everything changed for Joel. He spent the next three years studying and delivering presentations on property investment to families all over the country.
While Joel enjoyed talking to households about the great opportunities property can deliver, he became unhappy with the quality and objectivity of the advice the companies he was working for were giving their clients. Joel decided to leave the field and secured a technical sales position with a reputable security company based in Melbourne. During his three years in security, Joel continued to study property in his own time and soon realised that this was where his career and passion lay. With this in mind, he joined Empower Wealth, a company that agreed with his ethics and shared his client-focused attitude.
Joel finds fulfilment in his role by being able to give his clients clarity on their current situation and hope for their future. He has a strong drive to ensure his clients are beginning their journey with Empower Wealth in an informed and exciting way and places great value on the importance of education. He not only wants his clients to know what they need to do around investing, but to also build his clients’ knowledge to understand why they are doing it from both a personal and technical viewpoint. This builds conviction and comfort when entering the property market.
Recently married, Joel spends his spare time studying, reading and playing soccer several times a week. He is still active with his music and runs his own side business with his wife, Angela, providing musical entertainment for weddings and corporate events. Joel’s long-term vision is to grow his property portfolio and practice the advice he provides to clients with Empower Wealth to take care of his family’s financial future.
