BRISBANE BORN AND BRED, ZORAN SOLANO, HAS BEEN IMMERSED IN PROPERTY INVESTMENT SINCE HE WAS A YOUNG BOY.
In fact, three generations of his family have been passionate about property investment.
Those many decades of property investment expertise has resulted in Zoran becoming one of the most respected buyers' agents in Queensland today with a strong client following who utilise his skills and property investment nous to their financial advantage.
He's also built his own substantial property portfolio, which exemplifies his commitment to property investment as the number one wealth creation strategy.
His investment philosophy of only buying well-located properties that also display the potential for capital growth and strong cash flow means that his client list includes sophisticated investors who demand the very best real estate for their investment dollars.
But Zoran's successful investment and buyers' agent journey started with his grandfather, who worked a blue-collar job but also invested in real estate. From those humble beginnings, his grandfather bought properties, including unit blocks, around Brisbane, with Zoran often helping out by collecting rent or mowing lawns.
That formative experience was followed by Zoran helping his buyers' agent mum, Liz, after school and at the weekends as her research assistant. Then at the tender age of 19, Zoran put all that he had learned on and off the job into good use and bought his first investment property.
Over the best part of the next decade, Zoran's career went from strength to strength as he built a reputation for professionalism and investment success and it wasn't long before he was being officially recognised.
Zoran has been a finalist in the Real Estate Institute of Queensland's (REIQ) Buyers Agent of the Year award as well as part of its Young Agents Group. He's also an REIQ member and a member of the Real Estate Buyers Agent Association of Australia.
Zoran is also the co-author of Hot Property: A Guide For Investors and is a regular media commentator who has appeared on A Current Affair, Today Tonight, The Living Room and Domain as well as in Australian Property Investor and Your Investment Property magazines. He's also appeared on stage at the Property Buyer Expo in Sydney.
Furthermore, Zoran is part-owner of the successful Hot Property Management agency.
Zoran lives and breathes property investment and uses everything he has learned to help his clients with property and buying strategy, renovation and development consultancy as well as their property management needs.
There's no doubt that property investment is in Zoran's blood and it's a passion that he's happy to share with his clients to help them achieve their property dreams, too.
