Change of Tack
Daniel Brown’s property education took place on the high seas. At the age of 21, he and his girlfriend set sail for New York (the young policeman took a year off working as a cop, a job he had been doing since he was 18). During the long hours he spent traversing the Pacific Ocean, he read everything he could about property.
“I always knew I wanted to buy a house, but I didn’t really know where to start. So I read and upskilled on the boat.”
Eight years on and Brown (who lives in Whangaparaoa) is now well and truly ensconced in the world of property.
