Jim Downs Real Estate Career
For over 40 years Jim Downs has been in the real estate industry. He started a Raine & Horne franchisee in Sydney but was promoted soon after to become Franchisee Manager, overseeing NSW, VIC, ACT and Tasmania. Following his successes in these four states, LJ Hooker hired Jim Downs to manage their massive NSQ Franchise operation.
It was in 1995 when Jim Downs started a business on his own in Sydney CBD. He focused on Project Marketing and Accounting for entrepreneurs, with success. Jim’s company flourished until 2010, when he sold the business. That’s when he wrote the Australian property investing guide “Appreciating Assets“.
Jim currently guides clients in property investment to provide them with a stable financial independence in the long term. He helps them boost their Property Portfolio while minimising tax and taking full advantage of medium and long-term capital gains.
