I’ve been a property investor and developer for over thirty years now – I’ve experienced two major recessions and maintain a constant lookout for the next.  I have bought, sold, built and managed real estate assets from Midtown Manhattan to Downtown Dubai and everywhere in between.  Four continents in total, including a stint in West Africa.

As a young architect I discovered the potential of the property sector when my first investment gave me a 5x return.  I took that profit and invested it into a larger commercial property opportunity and soon enjoyed a 3x return, I was on a role.  Over the next 6 years I enjoyed tremendous success investing/developing and quickly became a deca-millionaire.

But I was caught badly by the 2008 Global Financial Crisis - I had allowed the success get to my head and was spread way too thin.  When the music stopped I found myself with massive debts and spent the better part of a decade in damage control, digging myself out of a very deep hole.  I call that period of my life 'the lost decade'.

The pain and suffering experienced during that period taught me some valuable lessons and has made me a much better investor.  I don't want others to make the same mistakes I did, so I've taken everything I know and distilled it down into a super-effective coaching program that not only educates, but equips you mentally and emotionally for the inevitable challenges that lie ahead as an investor.

I look forward to working with you.

In April 2020, as the World adjusted to life under strict lockdowns, Gavin decided to make the most of the disruption by hitting 'record' and starting his podcast Behind The Facade.  

What began as a lockdown experiment has since evolved into an extremely popular real estate news resource for investors all over the World.  The show regularly hits #1 in the 'Investing' genre.

The popularity of the podcast has led to speaking invitations at prestigious international conferences such as RecoTech in Helsinki and the Commercial Property Summit in London.



From my debt-fuelled commercial retail deals of the mid-2000's, to my role today as the Commercial Portfolio Director at the family firm Earlsfort Group, where I am responsible for our award-winning development East Point Business Park - I eat, sleep and breathe commercial property, particularly office and retail.

East Point is a 40-acre office campus developed by Earlsfort and home to 50+ corporate occupiers including global tech giants Oracle and Google. Before the pandemic, a typical day could see upwards of 9,000 people commute to work there.  However in today's new world of hybrid work the office is having to be reimagined and I like to believe I am at the forefront of that effort.

I spend a good deal of my time collaborating with occupiers in the design and operation of more productive work environments, that not only respond to the changing demands of the modern occupier but also resonate and engage with a younger and more demanding workforce. I believe an innovative approach to how buildings are delivered & run is crucial in this rapidly changing industry.

Fascinated by human behaviour, personal development and leadership, my favourite topics to write and speak about are around investor mindset and resilience in real estate. I am also a passionate advocate for sustainability and the reduction of carbon emissions by the real estate industry.




The overwhelmingly positive feedback Gavin has received from members of his podcast audience encouraged him to begin creating video content for YouTube (now also on TikTok).

From the topics being covered by his podcast, to free coaching sessions, to his opinion on industry news & events, to documenting his thoughts and progress on his projects and endeavours - something for everyone.
