Property Advisor & Acquisitions QLD
Andrew Winter is a highly regarded residential property expert, known for his award-winning real estate TV shows and media career that extends across two decades.
His passion for property started young entering the real estate industry at 17 and buying his first home at 18. That UK real estate career, including nearly a decade in the central London market, led to the family move to Australia in 2005, where his career in real estate and related media flourished.
Andrew understands what makes the market tick, will seek opportunity and inherently knows when risk could be too high. 24 years as a selling agent gives Andrew a wealth of knowledge and understanding, especially when it comes to helping people source their new family home, investment property, or holiday get away.
Whilst Andrew’s media career continues, in 2023 he decided it was time to re join the industry he loves. Suburbanite came with a professional reputation, industry expertise, a great team and the right technical support to allow Andrew’s valuable time to be maximised for clients in his home region of the Gold Coast in QLD.
Want to buy/invest on the Gold Coast? Let Andrew and the team at Suburbanite help.

Property Investment Advisor
Glenn Newbery is an accomplished property investment strategist with a robust property portfolio. He has built a career preparing new buyers for wealth through investment while also coaching experienced investors with his tried and true investment strategies.
Glenn’s climb to the top of the property investing ladder was a baptism of fire more than 20 years ago. In a bid to become a savvy investor, Glenn set himself an end goal and learned how to make better informed investment decisions to successfully make those goals happen. That’s when his investment portfolio really skyrocketed – to 14 properties in three years.
His early missteps forced Glenn to question his tactics. He swapped his career in IT to become a full time property investment strategist and today, he uses those experiences to help committed property investors avoid becoming property statistics.
Glenn’s role as an Affiliate Director and Property Investment Advisor at Suburbanite sees him share his extensive knowledge, compelling insights, and solid investment strategies with others.
He has propelled countless people on a successful property investment journey and empowered many more to expand their own portfolios.
There’s one more thing that distinguishes Glenn from the pack: he walks the talk. He knows his cutting-edge strategies work because he puts them into practice himself.
Glenn has established a reputation as a well-respected property strategist. He has been a guest speaker on several property podcasts and the focus of media articles and TV appearances. He also hosts regular property investment seminars in Sydney where he relishes educating people on investment strategies that change lives.
