About Our Guest:

Jacob Field is the Founder and CEO of Ripehouse Advisory. He’s been successfully investing in property since he was a teenager and now owns properties across Australia. In 2011, his passion for property led him to develop the Ripehouse Platform for analysing suburbs and locating spots within them so that interstate investors could acquire a local’s understanding. Initially a tool that Jacob used in his own research, it was later refined and redesigned for use by other investors and has evolved to be the incredible tool it is today.
