    No, No, Nooo I'm not a guru Shane. I have been very vocal historically and spoke at a number of property events in the past that's all.

    If anybody is looking for the reason why some people hit the wall, it's a very simple answer. To much debt not enough cash flow.

    Interesting to hear and learn from these stories.
    Especially from the mistakes, where people go down, would like to hear from Dean Letfus, Keiran Trass, Sue Laurey ? (in Chch), on how they crashed and burned.
    But the guru's that do down are less talkative.
    hahaha good one BK...I had a good laugh over that one. I am way too conservative to hit it big on the "Guru" circuit

    Yes I like hearing about what bought the Gurus down more than the successes as that is where we can learn the most. ...but you are right, they seem to gain humility all of a sudden and clam up.

    Lets face it....almost any idiot can make money over the last couple of years in this crazy rising market....but it's the steps and strategies we put in place to handle the next down market that interests me most. Because those steps determine who will survive and whom will be just another Guru on the investing scrap heap.

    Toby,

    And what is your claim to property investing "Guru" fame?

    "Hi Donna, I'm still alive and kicking Still have a descent bunch of rentals and still doing the odd trade.
    Got hammered mind you with the GFC BUT am still trucking along."

    I am always up for a good PI story...both the ups and downs.

    Edit: answered my own question

    Just googled you here

    The last paragraph of that interview is a real gem. Excellent advice.

    I have a nice three beddy in WW. If the current prospective purchasers don't go through you can have it for $399k

    Don't spend any/much time here on PT because I'm busy with property management, web design, other interests and family.

    Glenn Cooper

    Glenn has been known for years as a crook - I put notice on this forum years ago about him.

    his solicitor Alex Lee is just as bad -

    And yes - I am alive - not bankrupt and semi retired

    SFO Charges Property Investor
    08/11/2012
    The Serious Fraud Office has laid six charges of dishonestly using
    a document against Auckland property investor Glen Cooper who
    allegedly falsified sale and purchase agreements to conceal his
    interest in properties purchased through mortgagee sales which
    were then onsold at an inflated price. The Aucklander also allegedly
    prepared misleading loan application forms that were submitted
    to banks.

    The SFO investigation looked at six property transactions worth
    approximately $834,700 between November 2010 through to
    September 2011.

    I would vote bankruptcy if he owed me money. By now I would have given the chance of getting my money back at zero anyway so why not make him suffer a bit as well.

    I believe he made his initial money through buying thousands of personalised plates when they first came out. Seemingly it's all gone.

    Bob Jones's 'Why developers always go broke' anyone?

    Lawyers confirmed the judge's understanding that Blackmore asked to be able to pay $100,000 towards his debts of more than $15 million, under some form of employment arrangement.
    Lol. So he can pay like .6% of his debt if his creditors give him a job?

    The cheek of it!

    wow this took off, not willing to read 30+ pages but back to the original topic:

    Steve McKnight is pretty heavily focused in USA property and has started a managed fund to purchase USA commercial property
