Bob Andersen - Property Developer Course: No Money to $1B Worth of Projects

If there’s a name that’s synonymous with Australian property development, it’s Bob Andersen. And for good reason: The co-author of Residential Real Estate Development: A Practical Guide for Beginners to Experts has been involved in over $1B of projects— yes, with a ‘B’— since his burst onto the development scene over 30 years ago. In addition to having personally developed 2822 properties, in the last decade he’s also thrown his hat into the ring to teach over 2,500 budding developers how to do the same. 

In this episode Andersen divulges his personal and professional stories, ranging from his athletic childhood in sunny Brisbane to the depths of despair on one tired night. The regular contributor to magazines such as Australian Property Investor and Your Property Investment describes every step along the way before and after that fateful night, including the chance meeting with a client-turned-mentor that catapulted him to where he is today. 

Despite the bumps in the road, Andersen has emerged triumphantly every time to build the empire he thought impossible. He delves into how having passion for what you do really does make all the difference— not just to your happiness but also to the overall trajectory of your life. Even with less than 5 cents to your name, Andersen is proof sometimes all it takes is one person to see that spark within you to get that entrepreneurial fire blazing.

Bob Andersen on Micro Markets and Holding Out For That Magic $1M

We’re back with property development guru and owner of Property Mastermind, Bob Andersen. Here we dive into the moments, projects, and habits that built Andersen into the investor and teacher he’s so proud to be. 

He reveals some of the strategies he teaches in his classes, where his students consistently prove that riches aren’t required to get started in property development. Plus, hear the guidance he would give his younger self that we can all stand to hear. Andersen proves that while some of the advice you may receive seems less like advice and more like common sense, the passage of time can add in the lightbulb of wisdom that brings everything to light.

I had a business spirit, I wanted to do things. It took me a little while, admittedly, because of the culture that was there, it took me a little while to actually realise that I needed to be out of there. And what I was going to do.

The police arrived and thought I was dead. But we fooled them. So what that did, I won't take too long telling you, but it changed my life. It was the best thing that ever happened to me.
