By Concierge was created right here in Melbourne and with one main defining purpose in mind, ‘Lifestyle’. We came together to design a platform that allows us to not just dream but to ‘live in the moment’.
Our personal dream of “lifestyle” is different, special, and has a unique meaning to each of us. However, what we do share in common is our desire to achieve it. We understand what real living means, that it's having the option to enjoy moments with loved ones, including with ourselves, and not wasting the most valuable and priceless possession we have; time.
The By Concierge team are all passionate dreamers with a big vision to create ‘the moment’ for our people, this means for our investors, guests, business partners, employees, and ourselves. We work closely with our business partners and our dedicated investors in creating the ultimate short-stay experience, adding a touch of creativity, fun, and quirkiness to the experience for our guests.
We are here to create the moment for all of us. Let’s capture it together, in this space.
Dreamers, Creators, Designers on a mission to create an unforgettable and most memorable experience in your home. We work closely with our business partners and our dedicated investors in creating the ultimate short-stay living experience with added creativity, fun, and quirkiness to enhance the experience for our guests.
“We plan to be a part of your lifestyle needs. Let us help capture your moment, together, in this space.”
“We deliver what we say we will. To our partners, we are all about sharing our vision, and that is living in the moment and creating the ideal lifestyle for everyone who shares our journey.

"We will hold accountability and responsibility when looking after one of your biggest assets - your property - and treat it like our own.

We have teamed up with our very own partners including our property managers, cleaners, photographers, property stylists, and tradesmen dedicated to maintaining your property.

“Our goal is to deliver the ultimate short-stay experience with added creativity, fun, and quirkiness to enhance the experience for our guests.

add to your memory. It is our passion to be a part of your lifestyle’s need, even if it’s only short-term.’
Who are we?
When I took a one way trip to Melbourne at the age of seventeen to begin a life of independence, I had a strategy for myself, the ever-so-useful strategy many followed - graduate, get a job, invest in property, retire early from investments, and live a life of freedom waking up in Samoa's sunrise and sleeping under the northern lights on the Norwegian Sea Islands.
This strategy worked its magic in the first couple of years, where I landed a good job opportunity, had a stable income, and built up a multimillion dollar property portfolio within a short amount of time. However, when the borrowing capacity came to a halt (as I also had a multimillion dollar debt!) even creative finance became extremely risky and difficult for me to continue property acquisition, especially during the era of turbulent global economy (after brexit and 2016 US election) when banks relentlessly sealed up their already tightened pocket. This is when the light bulb moment came on - I need a better cashflow strategy! And fortunately, my fellow investment partner Jacob came to the rescue. He showed me how to achieve a doubled monthly investment return through Airbnb easily and effortlessly by focusing on guest experience and creative styling, and I was stunned with the power of this short-term rental platform!!
This is where the idea of this business germinated: to build an investors network to fast track their pathway to true financial freedom, and use our passion and creativity in personal life and finance to provide a unique experience for every single one of our guests.
By Concierge, is where MAGIC happens.
"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

I started my career as an engineer. I understood machines, spreadsheets and computer code. A philosopher at heart, who didn't understand people, teams, or businesses. Fortunately, time living in China and India, working abroad for a large multinational - designing systems, training staff, and managing crisis teams and then being made unceremoniously made redundant, gave me a wealth of understanding and a background of connectedness with colleagues, teams as well as the technology.
Working for a job is a bankrupt strategy because, when you stop working, money stops. Enter my experience in property investing in the US and Australia.
Professionally, I went into the world of IT consulting, which I loved because I got to work on strategic problems that mattered to people, and had to be very organised or projects would fall apart. And, as small companies sometimes do, didn't plan their sales very well - and had no work for me.
Necessity is the mother of invention. Enter as an Airbnb entrepreneur. Not that easy but possible money making from my property. The spreadsheets look good. The numbers add up. Need to make the system work well, and be super-organised. Enter 2 property-loving business partners. Fast-track to financial freedom for our clients, us and more properties. This will work.
I’m no comedian. In fact, I’m frank, straight to the point, direct, yet also the most honest person you’ll ever come across. But don’t underestimate me; I can make you laugh if I try. My ego has no boundaries and my amazing self sees no limits. At this point, you’ll either conclude that I am just an over-confident person (and perhaps I am) or like me you’ll think ‘Wow, this person is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G-!’.
Either way, I can tell you that I have been so fortunate to have met and now be working together with two remarkable and incredible individuals. We share one common goal and that is to manifest the lifestyle we desire. That means life to us is about living in the moment. Stop dreaming and start living.
During an interview, the Dalai Lama was asked what surprises him the most, his response was quite mind altering.
“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not
enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never
going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
I have been working in the financial services industry since 2010 and have been a Financial Planner by trade since 2014, entrepreneur by heart, and amazing person by self-declaration. Therefore, you can trust that I have experience and passion, which I’ve 100% dedicated towards this mission, and the values we all carry in this business. I believe in creating a difference in people’s lives and there is no one way to proceed, this is just another way. Making a big difference in the lives of those who took the chance with us in my book is called
‘creating the opportunity’, and achieving the outcome of manifesting a desired lifestyle, without having to worry about finance or loss of time, is just plain rewarding!
