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.

Brendan has been in charge of giving us direction when it comes to our future with property investing. We had portfolio of 4 properties prior to meeting Brendan but were completely lost and had no plan. Previously we had purchased properties from spruikers and sold properties we shouldn't have. We now feel confident that with our money smarts platform set up and Brendan's property plan we now have a clear direction and know what we need to do to achieve our financial goals.

We have been working with Dean from the mortgage broking team for a few years now. We are very happy with everything from the friendly banter, expert knowledge and setting up our finances for both PPOR and Investment.We were unsure what our next steps should be on our investment journey so we have finally engaged the services of Brendan from the PIA team. Once again we are very happy with the friendly approach, expert knowledge, and professional service provided. We are now much more confident moving forward and excited to see how achievable/attainable our goals are with our very detailed, but easily understood, property investment plan now in place.

Such a genuine and authentic experience. No hard sell or BS catch-all phrases. Brendan was a straight shooter who explained all aspects of my plan. A very positive experience overall.

Right from the start of our journey with Empower Wealth we have had the best experience and best service from your team. I would like to say a huge thank you to Brendan Vaughan from the initial start of building our Money Smarts portal and Property Portfolio Plan. Brendan was a pleasure to work with and made us feel supported and comfortable throughout the process. Mat Kirk was great to work with and really understood our situation and what would work best for us. Mat was always honest and informative and available to answer any of our questions! Sam Franicevic has been fantastic and very patient with us I cannot recommend Sam enough. Even our bank manager was very impressed with Sam and Mat on the level of detail they supplied and support they provided to us. Thank you all for helping us achieve our goals! Katelyn and Matthew Sillars
