Success Story


Let’s discuss getting ourselves out of the “30 Year Mortgage Trap”. What an inspiring story of a couple changing their future through taking action in the right way. Chris and Marney came to us firmly in the “Death Pledge” of a mortgage on their own home, nugging away to save their dollars to get ahead. Whilst they had exceptional money habits, they had acquired their own home in a market that was not providing them with the growth needed to create a portfolio.

Chris and Marney are a double-Defence couple with a keen desire to take their maiden voyage into investing. This Navy couple commenced their journey with one of our coaches, Luke, where they were blown away by the clarity provided through the planning process. After their first session, they started to find their sea legs and were keen to get this ship in the water. It was clear how Axon was going to support these two.

With a plan, our strategy and the clarity we needed to ensure a safe acquisition, the Property Specialist went on the hunt to find the right property for Chris and Marney’s portfolio. They identified a property smack bang in the middle of a rapidly expanding area in South East Queensland, rich with the ‘Seven Ingredients to a Healthy Property Market’.
