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.

Like a lot of people approaching their 50's, we thought we may have missed the investment boat, but Empower Wealth has done a great job in providing us with a detailed and plan that could see us retire in 10 years time with our desired level of $2,000 per week passive income, debt free and non-reliant on any government pensions.

My experience with Empower Wealth has been nothing short of amazing. Joel is very knowledgeable and is very good at explaining what he knows. I have enjoyed working with him and look forward to continuing to work with him. Ben and Bryce's knowledge delivered through their podcasts is invaluable and is what made empower wealth stand out from the rest. I look forward to implementing my property strategy with them.

Joel's natural style and approach made the process so easy and straightforward. He was easy to talk to and helped us navigate all the tricky conversations that planning your future entails. He helped us to get motivated to take control of our finances to set up the future that we dream of. It has been a valuable and insightful process and we can't thank him enough for setting us on this path.

Joel helped us clarify and then crystallise our Property Portfolio Plan for the next 30 years! We would (and have) recommend Empower Wealth to everyone who likes to have a road map.

At first I was a bit nervous to sit down and discuss wealth and property investing with Joel, but after doing so I now have a greater understanding of what it is I would like to achieve, what is required and what results we expect to see in the fruition of the property plan. It is a wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone building wealth.
