Expert in real estate, wealth development coach, author, and speaker.
Just 18 years old, Zaki Ameer arrived in Australia determined to not only land on his feet, but to achieve his big business dreams.
In the aftermath of some initial life-changing setbacks, Zaki found himself living in an alien culture with few friends, no income, and significant debt resulting from university tuition. In order to stay in Australia, he spent the next four years working eight-hour days followed by night classes in Business and Finance, then completing course assignments at home in the late hours of the night.
Zaki had a chance meeting that inspired him to try his hand at property investment after he was free of debt and had earned a Bachelor of Business degree. Just a few years later, Zaki had secured a portfolio of ten properties worth more than $3 million.
With his incredible success, Zaki began speaking at seminars and events about wealth creation and personal development. His enthusiasm for sharing knowledge led him to create DDP Property (DDP), a unique wealth creation program, in 2012.
DDP has assisted nearly 1,800 clients in buying over 1,400 properties in the past few years. Giving back to the community is an important part of DDP Property’s mission. They have supported and continue to support a variety of charities, including the Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Sydney Young Professionals, Tiny Miracles, and The Sri Lankan Annual Ball.
With Zaki’s business approach, he guides clients through their own property investing journey using his wealth of investment experience and methods. With only one member of staff assisting him in building the company, Zaki now has a team of 15 employees who provide ongoing and personalised service to DDP clients based on their changing circumstances.
Dedicated to mentoring, Zaki is always available to his team, advising them on client business as well as mentoring them to grow professionally. His team has created their own investment portfolios. One of Zaki’s team members grew his portfolio from zero to ten properties in just two years under his mentorship.
Kickstart is another example of DDP’s unique services designed to assist Gen Ys in taking their first steps into the property market and cementing their financial literacy.
Zaki’s long-term vision for DDP is both to create innovative strategies and services for clients as well as to become one of the world’s leading wealth creation companies.
