Brendan Vaughan

Qualified Property Investment Advisor

Brendan is a Qualified Property Investment Advisor (QPIA). Before moving into the Property Investment Industry helping others on their journey, Brendan worked in Engineering and Project Management and he holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering and a Masters Degree in Project Management.

Originally from Ireland, and after spending 4 years as a Production Engineer in Japan, Brendan moved to Australia and spent 13 years working in the Automotive Industry as a Project Manager, Sales Manager and Business Development Manager.

While working in the Automotive Industry, Brendan was introduced to (the power of) Property Investing through Robert Kiyosaki, author of ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’, where he also learnt the importance of Purpose, Team and Mission. He then started to build his own property portfolio in his spare time. His motivation to gain his financial freedom stems from his desire to be able to travel, spend time with family overseas, and have freedom of time and place while young enough to enjoy it. During this period, Brendan’s interest in, and knowledge about, Property Investing grew exponentially. He now has a multi-million dollar portfolio of 8 properties across Australia, accumulated over 12 years.

“Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”, Unknown.

When the opportunity presented itself in 2015, Brendan followed his passion, secured his formal qualification as a QPIA®, Qualified Property Investment Advisor, and got to live his dream every day, teaching others who wish to follow the same path to wealth creation through property. After a year working as a QPIA® at Destiny®, Brendan joined the Empower Wealth family.

Brendan derives immense satisfaction from building and implementing wealth creation plans with family, friends and clients to improve their financial position, and secure their financial future. The positive impact on people’s lives, and their future wealth and happiness, is immeasurable. Brendan believes we all know we need to take responsibility for our own financial futures, and not relinquish that authority to others – yet that is exactly what most people do! As one of Buddha’s proverbs quite aptly states, “Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and common sense.” Brendan believes clients of Empower Wealth are among those that choose to take control, leverage from the team’s expertise, develop a plan, build their wealth, and decide their own financial future.

Brendan’s desire to help others also extends to his local community where he serves as a Volunteer Firefighter with his local CFA Brigade on call 24hr/day, and as Treasurer on the Brigade Management Team. Outside of Property Investing and his duties at the CFA, Brendan enjoys time with Family, Travelling, Trail Running, Sailing and Reading anything related to wealth creation and personal development.

A Big thank you to Brendan for his hard work developing my Property Plan. Brendan was able to guide me through the whole process and answer any questions I had. I now have the confidence to purchase my first investment property and I can't wait to make it happen. Would highly recommend getting a plan developed through Empower Wealth for anyone considering it. Thanks again to Brendan and the team.

This service is great, and helps you understand how you can adapt your life situation/choices to meet your priorities; whether that means more time, more wealth, a bigger family or whatever the case. I would call this more of a life plan than a property plan!

Money well spent! Have a very clear plan on our future steps moving forward and very clear goals we need to achieve for a comfortable retirement.

Very happy with how everything came together with Plan. Our advisor Brendan was excellent to deal with and has delivered a plan that we feel will secure our financial future. We definitely recommend Empower Wealth to anyone who is serious in getting professional knowledge and advice and having a written plan that is tailored to their specific wants and needs.

My partner and I are 33 - 34 years old. Although we are both relatively good with the way we manage money, we needed that extra expertise and accountability when it came to an investment strategy. This is what Empower Wealth gave us.  I’m excited to see how quickly we can develop and grow our port folio and this plan makes it feel well and truly in reach.  Thank you to our Qualified Property Investment Advisor, Mortgage Broker and Financial Planner for you assistance thus far.
