Sharing is caring

The luck of the Irish has followed Jane Slack-Smith, and she finds her joy in giving back

It’s easy to believe that Jane Slack-Smith may have received the blessing of St Paddy when she kicked off her property investment journey on St Patrick’s Day in 2001.

“A lot of people tell me I was lucky,” she says.

“However, I used my risk-based analysis skills as an explosives mining engineer to create a way to predict where to buy.”

Slack-Smith put her self-styled renovation strategy to the test when she bought and upgraded her first two homes. She quickly realised she had developed an effective tactic, which she calls her ‘Trident Strategy’. It has enabled her to profit from property and spend more time with her son, while also giving her husband freedom to pursue his creative interests.

Having employed the strategy for nearly 20 years, Slack-Smith now spends her time mentoring others.

“I invest in creating easier ways for investors to achieve what I have, which is the ability to do what I want, when I want. For me now, this is all about giving back and sharing my knowledge.”
