Finding Opportunities in Commercial Real Estate! Interview with Property Whisperer Warren Ebert

2023-10-20_20-36-08.png 20/10/2023

He’s the CEO of Sentinel property group and has earned a reputation in the industry as the ‘property whisperer’ for good reason.

Not only has Ebert timed the market well — getting in prior to the booms and selling down prior to the busts — but he also has a proven track record of delivering impressive returns for investors.

In fact, under Ebert’s leadership, Sentinel has delivered an average annual return of 13.3% since its inception, far surpassing the market average!

What sets Sentinel Property Group apart is its focus on value-add and opportunistic investments.

The company has a reputation for identifying underperforming assets with potential to add value — implementing strategic changes to maximise their value.

As Warren says,

‘We were never about buying best of breed, as far as high quality properties, because how do you make money on that?

‘We make money out of properties, and same as I think any corporate takeover. If you buy a company that’s being run the absolute best, everything’s spot on, how do you make money?

‘You make money by fixing problems.’

This approach has enabled Warren to deliver strong returns — even in challenging economic times.

How to make money in the commercial property market with "Property Whisperer" Warren Ebert

2023-05-20_20-23-48.jpg 20/05/2023

One master of commercial real estate, who has lived and thrived through some of the worse recessions, is Warren Ebert. He’s the CEO of Sentinel property group and has earned a reputation in the industry as the ‘property whisperer’, deservedly so.

Not only has Ebert timed the market well — getting in prior to the booms and selling down prior to the busts — but he also has a proven track record of delivering impressive returns for investors.

As Warren says,

‘We were never about buying best of breed, as far as high quality properties, because how do you make money on that?

‘We make money out of properties, and same as I think any corporate takeover. If you buy a company that's being run the absolute best, everything's spot on, how do you make money?

‘You make money by fixing problems.’

Catherine Cashmore in conversation with Martin Wolf - Chief editor of London's Financial times

2023-04-22_21-07-24.png 22/04/2023

Martin Wolf CBE, has just released his new book, The Crisis of Democratic Capitalism.

He warns that unless we address this problem, our economies and societies will break down — and worse still, we could be ‘sleepwalking into war’… 

In this interview we discuss how current events are potentially leading into a dramatic top at the end of this economic land cycle - with conditions not unlike those witnessed prior to the second world war.

Leith has previously worked as an economist at the Australian Treasury, Victorian Treasury, and Goldman Sachs.

With a strong background in economic policy and financial sector regulation, he’s not afraid to cut through the BS bias narrative that dominates the mainstream media and tell it like it is.

I caught up with Leith yesterday to break down what the current immigration policies mean for Australia and each state’s property market — and to look at the potential outcomes.

We also discuss:

The gas cartel’s stranglehold on the Australian economy
The dynamics in NZ’s property market that have produced a *crash* in median values
Why Leith thinks markets are on the upwards swing
Advice for investing if you don’t want to fall subject to disastrous economic policy decisions that promise to transfer wealth from renter to rentier

Most subscribers are familiar with Fred’s work.

An Oxford University graduate, Fred is a Fellow of the New Economics Foundation and a research associate at the Land Values Research Group. He’s also the author of more than 20 books, including The Power in the Land, The Corruption of Economics, and Boom/Bust 2010.

There are "too many apartments" and "not enough people renting them" — which has led to lower rents and waning interest from investors, she said.

In recent years, newly-built apartments have had some bad publicity — involving flammable cladding and poorly built high-rises like Opal Tower and Mascot Tower (in Sydney).....

What our Clients are Saying

Catherine worked tirelessly in finding me a great property at a good price. She did things that I wouldn't have done (hours and hours of legwork) and more importantly, couldn't have done (organising the purchase before anyone else had even put in an offer). When I was ready to give up, Catherine kept working. I'm certain that I never would have been able to buy the same property within 10k of what we eventually settled at.... David
The expertise you bring are excellent and helped us understand the process and what to do and what not to do. You discussed at the beginning that by using you it will save us money and in our instance and the current environment of Melbourne’s market I believe you saved us $100,000 or enabled us to get into a suburb which going to auction would have gone way over our limit. You worked tirelessly to help us purchase a home.... Karen
“You impressed us from the start, especially compared with the other buyers agencies we approached…” - Raj
