Profile: Nick Irons
When Nick Irons takes on a project, he wants results, and fast. Whether that’s wheeling and dealing car parts or investing in property, he’s not one to sit around waiting patiently for his money to come in. That’s why a buy-and-hold strategy was never going to work for him.
The Invercargill born-and-raised investor trained as a joiner following school, but he says he was always entrepreneurial, and a money-maker on the side, either dealing in car parts or building materials. When he was 23, together with his then girlfriend (now wife) Selena Irons, he purchased five rental properties.
