A mum-of-four who has revealed her secrets to developing a portfolio of 20 properties by 37 – as well as sharing her top real estate tips.

The director of the property investment service Reventon, Billie Christofi from Melbourne, said she started saving and investing when she was just 16 and has always had a love of looking after her finances, which has paid dividends.

‘Throughout my childhood, I was always encouraged to save any money I got for Christmas and my birthdays and put it into shares,’ Billie told FEMAIL.

‘I started my investment journey at the age of 16 when I took my money out of shares and put it into a commercial property to syndicate.’

By the time she turned 22, Billie said her initial deposit had tripled in value, and she had enough cash – along with her savings from part-time work and the first homeowners’ grant – to buy her own home.

‘It was a big moment, and one I’d worked towards for a long time,’ Billie recalled.

But this was by no means the end for the property mogul, who sold the house 18 months later with a cool increase in value of $150,000.
