an introduction from our founder and ceO
My name is Ian Hosking Richards. I started Rocket Property Group in 2007 to pass on my real-life experience and knowledge to help others achieve their goals through property investing. Since then, I’ve helped hundreds of investors on their property journey.
In the beginning, I tried to do what most people do: I began reading everything I could get my hands on, and attending every seminar I found. I didn’t find that particularly helpful. There was plenty of information but much of it was contradictory. The more I read, the more confused I was. Maybe you’ve come to the conclusion I did:
Just take action. Property investment isn’t a theory.
This might seem a little impulsive, but I assure you, it’s actually a cunning plan that will allow you to get started straight away, with minimal risk and even without knowing everything about investing.
See, like you, I wanted to BE a property investor, not just KNOW about investing.
So I decided all I needed to do was to find the “right” someone who was already very successful in property investing and just copy their patterns. That’s what I did. I carefully chose my mentors and JUST GOT STARTED! I decided to keep my plan and actions simple and stop burdening myself with unnecessary information.
Once I set my plan down on paper, my first few purchases were ‘copycat’ buys: I simply bought where they bought. Within a few short years, I’d achieved my goals and amassed an impressive portfolio. That’s when I was able to leave my day job.
Interesting how things have come full circle and now I’ve become the mentor. My attitude has changed a little. I still think you don’t need to know everything before you get started, but it does make sense to have a good grasp of the basics. The basics I learned became the basis of the strategy that the Rocket Property Team and I use to help others.
I still believe that the best course of action is learning by doing, but we’re here by your side to help you every step of the way, to ACT on the dream of becoming a successful property investor.
