John Carney is a highly-respected Thought Leader in the specialised and lucrative field of real estate investing. As a third generation property investor/developer he has achieved (and continues to build upon) his own wealth creation and lifestyle freedom. His property deals in the US, Australia and Indonesia have amassed generous profit and comprehensive international experience.
A published author and sought-after international keynote speaker, John’s popular presentation and book, Real Estate is a Team Sport. The Nine Players You Need to Profit, outlines the steps to become a smarter, more profitable property investor.
John teaches investors to plan for the future and build cash flow positive real estate assets in order to multiply their wealth. He believes the more a person exercises their investment muscle and ‘plays the game’, the closer they come to achieving the BIG WIN.
John’s knowledge is interchangeable between the US and Australian real estate markets, which has enabled him to build an extensive list of clients in both hemispheres. He’s helped many clients to achieve their own levels of financial freedom.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, John has always been an active, outdoors person. He played ice hockey and baseball as a child, and started skiing at age four. As he got older, his love of challenging himself outdoors led him to Colorado, where he was accepted as an athlete at the Vail Ski Patrol for nine seasons.
He moved to Melbourne with his Australian wife in 2009. The Global Financial Crisis was in full swing and USA housing was at a record low, meaning massive opportunities for investors. Although John was working in real estate and being enticed by top tier international commercial real estate firms, he decided to start his own business with local Australian partners and his USA-based real estate network. America Property Source was born in 2010 and continues to flourish and evolve.
As part of his entrepreneurial spirit, John loves exploring the intersection of lifestyle and challenge. John has to constantly challenge himself and strive to be better. If there is no challenge, there’s no growth. To him, lifestyle is a combination of where and how he lives, and the type of activities he participates in while living there. He’s chosen to live in smaller towns that feed his need for quick and easy access to outdoor areas. John Cross Fits, competes in Spartan Races, mountain bikes, dives (PADI Dive Master), surfs and skis. And he loves to travel! He’s been fortunate to visit 39 countries and all 50 states in the US, and there are always more places to explore…
That’s John’s story, he’d love to hear yours.
