About Paul Hixon
In my early 20's, I ran a business selling equipment for sound production (TV and Music) which we grew to a turnover of $4mil within 5 years. We shut this business down when everything became computerised and the margin fell out of the business.
That's when I fell into property which was something I had loved for a long time. I remember as a kid always looking at the property section of the papers and rying to guess the price for each one. When I shut down the music business I got a job with a small real estate agency in London, which had just started its property management business. I grew this over the next five years and looked after around 300 properties with a small team. This is when I bought my properties (portfolio of properties in London) which we have done really well out of.
Looking after other people’s properties and caring for their biggest asset, I always had an interest in the finance side of the business. Making the numbers work for people. I qualified to be a broker in the UK, but didn't start as that's when I got sponsored by Loan Market to be a broker in Australia.
Property finance is natural to me and I don't find it difficult at all. I love it. It adds together all the parts of my life so far, customer service, property and finance. I love helping people get their dream home, I love setting them up correctly to make sure they are on top of the loan and saving as much as they can to pay off the loan as soon as possible. I love helping investors gain wealth through property and creating passive income from properties, which is something I have experience in.
I also have experience in helping people buy companies and get finance for that business.
