Independent Advice Explained

Why Most 'Independent' Advice Is Anything But...

Real estate agents, including "property research houses", hold listings on behalf of the vender so they are legally obligated to work for the first person who pays them (ie. the vendor, not you).

A horrible secret, many agents source 'quotas' of property from developers to attract higher commissions, then they reverse engineer the research to make it look like you're getting a good deal.

As a result, your 'independent' advice has been tainted by this conflict of interest, and the person who loses is you!

At Visionworks we only represent your interests. The small sign-up fee ensures a legal, as well as a personal obligation to put your best interests first.

Our clients stay with us for many investments, so while your portofolio grows, we grow too.

Why Kahla Gerard?

Having Kahla in your corner gives you access to a lifetime of financial and property investment experience to help you avoid common buyer mistakes.

Kahla literally grew up in real estate. Her father trained as a lawyer in France and when he migrated to Australia, worked as a real estate agent, before becoming a successful property developer. The 90's "recession we had to have" forced him into bankruptcy.

Witnessing first-hand how painful this was, and having lived through five recessions herself, Kahla has made it her mission to save investors from costly mistakes.

Working first as a financial advisor, then a mortgage broker, Kahla saw how much misleading advice is peddled inside the property industry. This motivated her to establish VisionWorks so she could guide investors clear of the many potential pitfalls that come with buying property.

Her concern and commitment to assist clients make the best decisions can sometimes keep her awake at night. This level of care is how you know you're getting advice truly focused on your goals.

Just wanted to thank you for all your help in finding me a great investment property. It has only been 64 days since I was introduced to Visionworks and during that short time you have sourced a great property in Brisbane, arranged legal representation, introduced a property manager, recommended a building inspector, monitored my finance arrangements and now I have the keys to my brand new property. Your communication skills have been professional and your interaction with all persons involved has made this a stress free and enjoyable experience for me. I highly recommend your services to anyone thinking about property.
Paul Gear

Operations Manager at KableX

The service we’ve received from Kahla of Visionworks Property Consultants whilst looking for our first SMSF investment property was nothing short of exceptional in every aspect. Kahla is genuinely passionate about ensuring her clients are presented with good solid property purchase options and her knowledge of the Australian property market is outstanding. The supporting research is thorough and the resulting property investment reports are extremely comprehensive and very easy to understand. We are in no doubt that we will utilise her services for any future property purchases; both my wife and I highly recommend Visionworks Property Consultants to our family and friends.

As a mortgage broker, I've known Kahla since 2017, but in truth, it took me a long time to feel comfortable about referring my clients to her, only because I've witnessed so many property groups fall short on their promises. Over the years I got to see how much Kahla cares about her clients. She puts their best interest first, every time. She'll source the best quality that my clients can afford within their budgets, and she works to educate and support them through the acquisition process. She even does annual reviews on my clients' properties, not just the ones she sold, but on all their properties to make sure these are working at their optimum performance. That's how you buy trust.
Kathy Dundas

Founder of No-Fuss Home Loans

We've had a bit of a rough run buying properties from other groups so our mortgage broker introduced us to Kahla at Visionworks to review our existing properties and possibly purchase a new property. We didn't know what to expect, but Kahla became an indispensable part of our team to help us get our finances back on track and make sure our properties were working for us again. Once we restructured, Kahla found us a new property that we'll never let go of. We can't recommend Kahla more highly. She is very professional, incredibly supportive and demonstrates great due diligence and integrity. Kahla’s highest priority is a duty of care to our financial future and she has secured ours. Thank you Kahla.

Between family life and a demanding job, I was too busy to source a quality property to purchase through my superannuation. My mortgage broker referred me to Visionworks, and Kahla really listened to our requirements, then sourced a fantastic property that has been tenanted and positively geared since day one. I couldn't be happier. I've referred her to my friends and family too.

National Indirect Purchasing Manager for Mining Company

We are a busy family of 6 with four boys under 8 years of age and run a Landscaping & Gardening business. We felt like we were missing out because we didn't have the time to find the right property that was in our budget and that ticked all the boxes. We also didn't know who to trust. Kahla has been transparent and honest with every question we asked, she's helped us get organised, and she has sourced two beautiful properties for us in different regions. We purchased at just the right time and in the right areas. We can't wait for Kahla to source us the next one. We’ve become addicted (in a good way) and can’t wait to see what the future holds for us!
Thank you Kahla,
You are so very appreciated.

As inexperienced investors we were very overwhelmed with the process involved. After engaging the services of Kahla Gerard and Visionworks the process was made a lot easier. Kahla not only guided us through the many obstacles that came along, she also found us a fantastic property in a great area, and negotiated a great sales price with the developer saving us $1000's, as well as recommending a good property manager who was able to secure a Tenant within 7 days of settlement. We would recommend Kahla and her team to any property investors and we would not hesitate to engage her services in the future.

There's a reason I've been in property for the last 20+ years. It's simple: I love classic design, sustainable building, and yes, good ol' fashioned 'property porn.'

Here's some of my latest architectural crushes:

Clarifiation: These are not my properties. These are buildings that made me go wow!


Visionworks understands trust should be earned, not given. We’ve developed processes to educate, guide and mentor you throughout the entire property acquisition process so you can have peace of mind. Some of these include:

  • Before we source property, we listen to your goals and circumstances.
  • We educate and offer complete transparency about market conditions, real estate methods, plus Visionworks’ fees and commissions.
  • To maximise your property’s performance, we work with you, and your professional advisors, to develop a bespoke and appropriate property investment strategy before the search for your property begins.
  • We conduct comprehensive research and provide you with quality information so proper due diligence can be conducted.
  • We guide you through the property management process because we understand yield (rent) is oxygen to your investment.
  • Importantly, we conduct annual reviews to ensure your property is working for you and not the other way around.

We are licensed in Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria. Within these states we conduct comprehensive research and detailed analysis to identify the best locations to source the strongest opportunities that suit our clients’ investment strategies.

We source owner-occupier grade quality apartments, townhouses, plus house and land. Depending on your goals, circumstances, and market conditions, the property types we consider include, existing and new, or off the plan, or existing and distressed (deceased estate, bankruptcy, receivership). Essentially, we understand the complexities of building a property portfolio and the need to be nimble enough to recognise opportunities for our clients.

Our clients are located from all over Australia and some from overseas. Most of our clients are intelligent and time poor; some want to buy their first investment property, while others want to build a portfolio.

  • We know we are dealing with people’s livelihoods, so duty of care is our highest priority.
  • We don’t hold listings, because if we did, we’d be working for the vendor, not you.
  • We’re interested in building long term relationships with our clients, not just making a sale.
  • Our foundational value is, if we do the right thing by you, then you’ll come back with your family and friends. Everyone wins.
  • Kahla’s decades of experience in finance (ex-mortgage broker and financial planner) and property offers clients a fresh, integrative, and strategic approach to property investing.
  • Visionworks conducts annual property reviews to make sure your properties are working for you.
  • We’re not interested in growing big with one-off sales and KPI’s, we’re interested in building relationships with our clients.
