Milk Chocolate – Richie Ragel & Michael Cleary: “Whole of Property Ownership”

My guests in this episode are Richie Ragel and Michael Cleary, long time friends with marketing backgrounds who turned their side hustle of property investing into a buyers agency that specialised in helping the expat market buy and sell property in Australia.

The pair have since expanded the business into a full service model that supports all elements of researching, selecting, owning, managing and even renovating property for not just expats, but anyone. And they are in the process of building out a tech stack to ensure all elements of the business are tech enabled. 

And where did their crazy name come from? Well, you’ll have to listen to the episode to find out!
