Have you worked hard to one day live a life of freedom?
Have you put everything you have into buying or investing in property in the hopes that it will get you further ahead in life? Have you found that it only seems to hold you back or keeps you idle?
In a time of economic uncertainty and almost unreachable house prices, even if you do end up investing in property, most of us find that it simply ends up holding us back or that you are not where you thought you would be by owning it.
At Up Your Rent, we are striving to put power back in the hands of the home owner and investors and promote a freedom lifestyle of choices, incorporating more flexibility of time & higher desired financial returns in an accelerated fashion.
Meet Aaron and Emily
Aaron and Emily successfully manage several of their own Airbnb businesses and soon realised the potential to generate tens of thousands of dollars worth of additional rental income per month simply by changing the vehicle in which you do so.
Up Your Rent was born when they discovered the desire held by other landlords to increase their potential rental yields through using short term accommodation as a strategy. However, they also recognised their frustration and lack of knowledge or desire to manage the process.
Many home owners don't know where to begin when renting their property through Airbnb or other related sites, least of all making it successful and lucrative. Aaron and Emily quickly set their minds to creating a service that utilises their own extensive hands-on experience to also offer other home owners a higher rental return for their properties.
They come equipped with first-hand, genuine experience in doing what they do. They have a deep understanding of all the crucial elements required to make your property highly successful financially using Airbnb.
Aaron and Emily are Freedom Chasers by exhilaration and Professional Property Investors by determination. Their passion to demonstrate to everyday Australians that you don’t have to have money to make money is obvious in their pursuits to help others. It’s through working together that true wealth is realised.
They are definitely NOT the status quo.
In fact, their strategies in real estate could even be described as slightly unorthodox. In thinking outside the box, they are able to turn obstacles into opportunities that create mutual benefits to all parties involved.
From renovating properties with no upfront costs to creating opportunities for landlords to earn higher than market rent, they share their knowledge of how to acquire real estate with little or no money and believe in working together to create win/win scenarios and a more beneficial outcome for all.
Aaron and Emily believe that collaboration always wins out over competition.
The pair have also been featured on the television show The Aussie Property Flippers, which aired from April 2017 on the Seven Network.
Currently a real estate coach to many successful clients, as well as a Master Wealth Creation Coach for Peak Potentials in the USA, Emily has developed much of her success through the power of collaboration. A big believer in win/win scenarios, Emily wanted to empower other investors/home owners to create the same success & believes that Up Your Rent is the perfect vehicle for her to do that.
She founded Empower You TV, the place to go for everything wealth, health & self, where she interviews people who inspire her from across the glode. Empower You TV is home to the fastest growing community of motivated, like minded entrepreneurs & property Investors.
Emily helps everyday motivated people take their lives from where they are right now to where they want to be by lifting the lid on their own limitations.
When she began Empower You TV, she was working as an actor and was completely broke. She decided to end the 'hand to mouth' lifestyle and take charge of her financial future and pursue her true passion of helping others to empower their own lives. She discovered how to get into real estate with little or none of her own money and went on to do nine property deals in under four years starting with only $1000.
However, the world of traditional rental tenants proved less than desirable and she knew that there had to be a better way to create passive income from her real estate investments. On the basis of that success, friends and family wanted to know how she did it.
Teaming up with her partner and tradie sensation Aaron Thompson, Emily is passionate to show motivated everyday people that when you allow yourself to think outside the square, then suddenly the world opens up to an abundance of opportunity that you didn't even know existed!
Success is for anyone!
Aaron is an accomplished tradesman/builder as well as an active property investor. From his beginnings as a professional plasterer, he has since expanded to include multiple trades, project management, renovation and profitable property flipping. He's worked behind the scenes on Nine Network's The Block, as well as appearing alongside his partner Emily in Channel 7's The Aussie Property Flippers.
As an investor himself, his experience of traditional rental tenants wasn’t always rosy. Having felt the pain of non-paying tenants and the lack of care and respect they demonstrated in his properties, he knew that it was neither a sustainable nor enjoyable way to continue holding his investments. Having tried his hand at ‘student accommodation’ as a strategy with all it’s promoted perks, he quickly realised that this too had equally as many down sides (such as having to prepare and cook meals for the boarding guests).
Since the introduction of the shared economy model with platforms such as Airbnb, Aaron was quickly blown away by the greater income potential and the higher quality of guests it attracted. After conversations sharing this strategy with other investors, it seemed most people wanted to experience the same results, but had no intention or desire of running it themselves. So together with Emily, they formed a service to help people achieve this and Up Your Rent was born!
Having previously owned a highly successful business on the Gold Coast that employed upwards of 10 staff at any one given time, Aaron understands the importance of loyalty, integrity, quality of work and customer service. He has very strong staff management skills and is highly respected as a leader, making delegation and outsourcing of tasks a breeze.
Aaron’s friendly, approachable nature makes him the perfect person to build customer rapport & trust with paying guests and his skill set as a tradesman is an extremely valuable asset for attending to any customer’s property maintenance issues.
