Greg Stafford
Senior Consultant
03 9100 3215
Greg spent 14yrs as a professional sportsman and his involvement in the competitive sports industry like the AFL has taught him many things.

From that grounding he successfully ran his own building company, which to this day can assist clients with pre purchase analysis of renovation/refurbishment scope and feasibility as well as development projects.

Greg is passionate about providing clients with the right 'research based' advice, particularly young athletes; while devoting their life to the sport they seek excellence, they need their investments to work as hard as they do. With an understanding of the precarious nature of professional sport and considering the career 'life span' of most athletes is relatively short, he is determined to guide their property investments in the right direction. It's also his love for mentoring and supporting AFL talent that has seen him perform as Ruck Coach at the Melbourne Football Club for 4 years.
