Absolute Gold!

“I am busy reading your book "Retire Rich Through Property" and many of my other questions are being answered as we speak! I have to say that the information in your books and on your site is absolute gold! Looking forward to doing my first deal soon as a newbie(with lots still to learn) but I certainly won’t be ignorant”.
- Dale Holtshousen

Firm Believer!

“Just wanted to say I'm a big fan of your books, Making Money out of Property in South Africa and Retire Rich Through Property. I was a firm believer, like many, that one had to have money to invest in property but having worked for a year I have been able to purchase a property by just proving to the bank that I can pay it back. With this deal I was also able to acquire the property at R120 000 less than its fair value by instilling the principles preached in those books. Brilliant.”
- Matipa Modisane

South African Property Investor Online

‘Making Money out of Property is a book for novice investors. Jason has a legal background and offers some good tips on structuring your offers and leases, and even Pam Golding says she learnt a few new tricks. Jason is also co-founder of a property development company and therefor the book goes beyond the usual “How to Buy and Sell your First Property”-type books that publishers love to waste investors’ time with. The section on investment clubs is fresh material and also in line with one of the five methods of property investing we at SA Property Investor encourage. Jason offers key points on every page for the lazy readers and hot points at the end of every chapter for quick scanning of the main points. I enjoyed it.’

My life is getting better because of reading your book.

'What an amazing book you have. I took it out at the Woodstock library and I was the first one and this always excites me...the book was displayed right at the forefront at the entrance when you get in. What I love most about it is that the book is relevant to ones whole life as is. Its not just about investing...or property. But how one should live and lead their life. How one should be positive about everything. How one should plan for their future etc. Im not even in the property game, Im a fashion designer working from home. But I have noted down a few pointers which I plan to look into very soon regarding property.' 'Its very inspiring. My life is getting better because of reading your book.' 'Thanks so much and Im confident it will inspire others too.'
