Joel Burton

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.

Our aim in initiating guidance from Empower Wealth was to get advice on the best way to structure an investment loan to be able to get the maximum tax benefits, get long-term investment on our current surplus, and to set our path for future investments. With his extensive industry knowledge, not only did Joel assist with that but a whole plan for our next 25 years to retirement and beyond. We now know what we need to do to have a very comfortable retirement. Thanks, Joel and the team at Empower Wealth!

Thanks, Joel for taking the time to have the unhurried conversation, and the depth of compassion to understand how our histories shape our current financial reality. Looking forward to the next few years of momentum.

My partner and I would most definitely recommend Empower Wealth if you are seeking not just property advice but also financial & future planning and everything in between. Joel in particular was extremely helpful, understanding and knowledgeable. Joel demonstrated a wealth of information necessary to understand our financial goals and property ambitions. I could not recommend Empower Wealth any higher. 10 out of 10 service. Please seriously considering approaching the team, even if its just a simple question or query. They are more than happy assist where they can.

Joel has been brilliant, he created a plan that was in tune to our dream needs and wants and made it work. We are now excited about our future as a lot of the uncertainties have been taken care of. We are excited to break the cycle in our families and create a better more informed future for our girls. He also referred us to our wonderful finance advisor Sarah and buyer agent Matt who are in the process of helping us buy our first investment property. Thanks for everything Empower!

A workmate recommended I listen to the ‘property couch’ podcast and consider engaging with Empower Wealth. We are very happy we did so - Joel (PIA), Thomas (Mortgage Broker) and Christa (Buyer’s Advocate) have been very professional and easy to work with. Highly recommended!
