Our Team

Craig Waberski

Director

The foundation of Craig’s success started in 1984 with the discipline instilled in the Navy where he achieved an Officers Commission of Sub-Lieutenant. After the Navy Craig got involved in a new industry of the time known as “office automation”, purchased his first property at age 22, renovated it and sold for twice what he paid for it 2 years later. By age 23 he was in partnership as a Director in an office automation business.

Craig had identified the need for education around finance and property after helping many friends and peers with his wisdom that he gained in South Africa. Getting straight into property on arrival in Australia 14 years ago, Craig and his wife Colleen started Homegroup Realty, commenced once again with property development, built up a property portfolio and they haven’t looked back since After a merger with another property company in 2012, WealthBuild Australia was born with 5 staff running 1 educational forum per week.

“Almost everyone in Australia can retire comfortably, even on a modest income, they just need the education and guidance to do it”

    We are delighted with the wonderful experience we’ve had in the building of our new project home.

We are very pleased with the result and the continued support we received from WealthBuild Australia. Thank you once again for your wonderful service and support.

    Where do I start! I cannot begin to praise you guys enough! It is so unexpected to have a company actually care about you and your future. From the seminar to the Expo I was continuously impressed by your professionalism and yet the personal concern for my future. Great business, great people. Look forward to dealing with you guys again in the near future!

    …very eye-opening and concerning facts which I had not taken to heart previously. I’m glad I sat down with one of the finance guys who gave me a plan I can now follow to meet my goals. I really am glad I did this. Couldn’t imagine waiting another 5 years to start taking action, I never realised how behind I was to getting to where I wanted to be. I am now relived that I have a plan to follow to reach my goals.

    First Time Around It was the smartest decision we made, attending and acting on a Wealth Build Australia seminar. There was no pressure, no hard sell. Just honest, straight forward and ‘plain English’ advice about how Wealth Build Australia could help build our future prosperity. Highly skilled, trained and knowledgeable staff took us through every step of the way. None of our questions were ‘silly’ questions. The explanations from the Wealth Build staff were clear and each step along the way was taken at our pace. We highly recommend Wealth Build Australia as a firm focussed on honesty, client satisfaction, and prompt and helpful customer service. Second Time Around They’ve done it again! Wealth Build Australia have helped us navigate our way to the successful settlement of our second investment property. We didn’t think the process could be any smoother than our first encounter, but this time has been incredible. Again, nothing was a bother to the helpful and friendly staff. We have recommended Wealth Build Australia to our friends and know that if they follow through with an enquiry, just like us, they will receive the same professional and friendly advice and support.

    While we are in no position to move ahead at this time, when we are we will definitely be giving Wealth Build Australia a call! Their customer service is absolutely wonderful. Their staff are so down to earth and really genuine people. We had one of their consultants come into our home and had a one-on-one with myself and my wife and we really did get so much out of it. Can highly recommend this company.
