Rachel Cole

Qualified Property Investment Advisor

Rachel is a Qualified Property Investment Advisor (QPIA).  She spent her 20s touring Australasia in commercial Musical Theatre but backstage built Excel spreadsheets to analyze investment property potential through renovation and by 30, owned a multimillion dollar portfolio across Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane.

She bought her first property at 26, in Brighton-Le-Sands in Sydney, midway through the current property cycle. After performing a small cosmetic renovation (painting, flooring, updating), she increased the rental price by $100 a week and the property became positively geared on completion. Shortly afterwards, she bought an original condition property in Moonee Ponds in Melbourne and undertook an ambitious full-gut renovation.

While sleeping on the floor throughout the renovation on a foam mattress, and working full time, she spent nights and weekends laying floorboards, “spackling” walls, designing kitchens and managing tradesmen. This provided $180,000 growth upon completion (minus costs), and a rental uplift of $150 p/week. This instant equity allowed the purchase of a house in Kangaroo Point, Brisbane. Although early retirement was never the aim, this current position would allow her to retire, debt free, by 45 on $170,000 passive income.

After listening to The Property Couch podcast, and realizing the integrity and passion upon which Empower Wealth is predicated, she reached out to determine how she could help others experience the same power, freedom and choice that come from Property Planning and Wealth Creation that she has enjoyed.  She also has a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology (Statistics) from The University of Sydney and a Diploma of Performing Arts.

Rachel has lived in every major capital city in Australia and loves using this knowledge to provide insight into market variances.  Such on the ground experience, combined with statistical analysis, is vital in helping clients buy into the right market at the right time.

With her astounding accomplishments and passion to help others, she was invited to appear on Episode 130 of The Property Couch where she shared her journey and tips and insights to building a property portfolio on a single income.  In her spare time, she enjoys cycling, podcasts and writing comedy for The Chaser comedy nights in Sydney or interviews for ABC Limelight magazine.

I found the process of deep diving into my money management (or lack of as it turns out) very insightful and also a wake up call as to how much money was slipping through my fingers. Rachel was fantastic and explained Empower Wealth's process in enough detail and in terms I could understand. When my husband and I saw the Property Portfolio Plan for our future we were both surprised and excited about the scenarios — do nothing or the potential when we do something. Bring on the next steps!

We worked with Rachel Cole, QPIA. Rachel is a huge asset to your business and a true inspiration. Rachel is financially mature beyond her years and it has been our pleasure to have her work on our Plan. Always polite and prompt in communication, Rachel is honest and open, and I enjoyed our video meetings. Rachel has given us the confidence that we are on track to a decent retirement without sacrificing everything now. My husband is happy he can achieve his retirement goal of 60. I recommend everyone to plan ahead, and going with Empower Wealth is going to give you, and us, a better chance of success! Thanks Rachel.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Rachel Cole from Empower Wealth in implementing my Property Portfolio Plan. It is so refreshing to work with someone who genuinely has my interests at heart. Her passion for property and numbers has been instrumental in ensuring my financial goals can be achieved, despite some challenging variables thrown in to the model. My new financial plan provides an excellent insight into where I am now and where I want to be in the future. I can now make financial decisions and see the impact of those results. I cannot recommend Rachel and the Empower Wealth team highly enough. Thank you.
