As experts in building property investment portfolios, our approach is to treat your property investments like a business. Most importantly, our approach is to treat you like a partner.

We teach you to invest the smart way; with the least amount of risk possible.

We help you learn the simple way so that you can grow the right way.

At the end of the day we’re here to assist you. Think of us like your personal assistant in property; helping you, advising you, researching for you and looking out for you.

That’s the MRD way.  



I have been working with MRD for about two years after being referred to them by a friend. 

I have purchased investment properties through MRD - though I’ve never felt any pressure from them. Other investment advisors make you feel like they’re putting you on the spot. Others aren’t upfront about costs and commissions but MRD are.

I like that MRD keeps me up to date with useful information and I would recommend MRD to others because they’re so easy to deal with and also because of the quality information they provide about the properties they have researched.

I love the MRD structure - they don’t just look at ‘the now’ they have your future in mind.

I have been working with MRD for about 7 years and have made 3 purchases through them. 

It started off with me wanting to invest in something and property was my first choice. I went along to an information session but still took my time as I discussed the opportunities that were available. 

Nick Lockhart has always been very available, very honest and he obviously knows the property market very well. Nick was professional in his evaluation about whether I was ready to go into the property market and I found that very useful. MRD’s aim wasn’t trying to sell something, but really getting a picture of what I wanted and if property investing suited me. Everybody there has been helpful and cooperative in understanding my needs and giving me advice - the whole experience has been fulfilling and very good.

Nick’s regular emails and information are excellent resources. It’s good to get updates on the regions I have invested but also on the investment market as a whole; interest rates, property conditions - it’s all very useful to read. 

The greatest benefit I’ve found in dealing with MRD is that they take the time to understand you as a person and more importantly, your personal situation. They are honest about whether it is right for you to start investing or whether you need to address a few other things first. They take the time to get a picture of where you are at and advise you accordingly. There’s absolutely no pressure to make up your mind quickly or sign on the dotted line straight away. 

From the start, Nick has said to me, “We’re not here to make a quick sale and move on.” MRD are here to educate you and advise you. There’s no pressure to act a minute or a day before you’re ready. They’re there for you.

MRD came highly recommended by a friend who had been dealing with them. It’s always daunting when you’re not familiar with this type of investment strategy so it was good to get a recommendation from somebody I trusted.

I’ve had a very positive experience with MRD. My contact there is Martin and we’ve formed a great relationship. Having that relationship has been my greatest investment resource. I can literally call him any day, anytime, and if he doesn’t know the answers to my questions he always refers me to people who do.

MRD arms you with everything you need to know to make an informed decision - literature, newsletters, research... I know that when MRD comes to me and says, “here’s an opportunity,” they’ve done the research and I can take the time to look at the affordability and timing for my personal situation. Now, with their finance arm, I can deal with MRD the whole way. 

I have been working with MRD for 4 years now and have bought 3 properties through them. 

MRD is a one-stop-shop and their personalised service is key to what they do.

My wife and I started mentoring with MRD just over 3 years ago after a recommendation from a friend. 

We have found the mentoring process key to understanding the basics of investing and also necessary to help set our minds on what we need to do to set up our future personal economic situation.

MRD have been very approachable, easy to understand and pleasant to work with. There is nothing I could complain about or have felt uncomfortable about.

One of the greatest benefits of working with MRD is knowing that we are working towards being in a better position when the time comes to retire.  

MRD have opened our eyes to the bigger picture and I am now recommending MRD to both family and friends.

Hi Nick,

I wouldn't normally contact you directly but I wanted to thank you for your time when we met in Brisbane.

When we spoke you asked if I had received a copy of your book and if I had read it. At that stage I had a copy but hadn't yet read it. I'm not much of a reader. But it's been sitting beside my bed for several weeks and with my meeting with Len planned for Monday I decided to pick it up and have a read.

Now given I've already mentioned I'm not much of a reader and it is only a short, plain English book; I'm still impressed I read it cover to cover in one sitting. I stopped only to get a fresh beer and text a friend encouraging him to read the book after me.

Your book was very informative and fact based and it left me feeling excited and positive that I've embarked on a smart investment path.

I'm very excited about learning more. I'm hoping it won't be a problem to pick up another copy of your book for to pass on to a friend that I think will benefit from the reading.

Kind regards,
Trent A - QLD



I have been working with MRD for nearly 10 years.  I was originally referred to MRD through a friend who invited me to attend a presentation in Melbourne given by Nick Lockhart.

For the first two years I followed MRD’s mentoring program, weekly emails and property market research and with these tools, I was able to develop a very good understanding of how to use investment in property to create financial security for retirement.  I purchased my first property in June 2006 and a second property in August 2013 both through MRD and they are both doing very well.

I have found MRD's mentoring, property research and VIP offers the most useful. The greatest benefit of using MRD is their professionalism, honesty and the way they build business relationships with their clients. When you are ready to buy, they organise everything from woe to go, everything from the holding deposit through to contracts for purchase and settlement, they will even arrange the finance if you need it.  

I have recommended 4 other friends who have also started building their investment portfolio through MRD.

We were introduced to MRD through an acquaintance and have been working with MRD for almost 11 years now. 

I can give you nothing but good feedback. I have dealt with Martin & Nick who are both professional and provide a great level of service. 

One of the most valuable resources MRD provides for me is their planning tools. When you are considering purchasing a property, they are able to produce a report which gives you an idea on what the property will do for you in terms of positive/negative gearing, how the financials stack up and even give you a future projection of 10-15years away. 

Another useful research tool MRD have for clients is the ability to be able to look at your current situation, current expenses, projected purchases to establish what amount of retirement income you will need when the time comes. 

One of the greatest benefits of MRD is being able to trust them. You know the properties that are presented are legitimate, they have been researched already and whatever you look at, you know they will be good purchases.

I have purchased 5 properties through MRD and recommend them to family and friends.

A family friend told me about MRD and I have now been working with MRD since 2009.

So far, my experience has been straightforward. MRD have made investing very uncomplicated by educating and enabling me to understand the benefits of property investment as well as the underlying mechanisms that the foundations of property investment sits on.

Without MRD to guide me through the implementation of the day-to-day process of setting up, maintaining and keeping an eye on my investments, I would have been bamboozled and found it all too hard.

The greatest benefit of MRD is their centralisation of information. When it comes time to buy they locate opportunities and the information flows. There is an order in which everything is done... They tell you how it all works and what you need to do. It is a seamless process. MRD are clear in their communication and provide a total solution to your investment needs.

I find that if something is relatively easy, you are more likely to do it. I have purchased 3 properties since 2009 and I recommend MRD to my family and friends.
