Brisbane Roar player Corey Brown building his property portfolio
BRISBANE Roar player Corey Brown may be handy with a football, but it turns out he’s also pretty handy with a hammer too.
Brown, who wears number 5 for the club he has been with since 2001, and his brother Jackson have had an interest in property for a couple of years and are now on the look out for another property renovation project they can do together.
Brown said a good friend of theirs Damien Cavallucci had really helped them out and taught them a lot about the market.
The brothers own a unit in Teneriffe and have an investment property on the central coast of New South Wales.
“Our interest in renovation came from my brother as he is a builder and the fact that I usually have a day or two off during the week as well as most afternoons so I can help out and be hands on.’’
Although the Roar’s heavy travel schedule lately has slowed that down a bit.
Corey was with the team in Japan this week.
Ben Smith of Place Estate Agents has been friends with Brown for about five years and is helping him in his search for a new project.
He said ideally they were after something with further development potential.
Mr Smith said the market was pretty hot at the moment, so they had to make sure they didn’t overpay.
