Victor Kumar

Position: Director

Victor Kumar has been investing in property over several property cycles, having bought his first property in August 1998, after migrating to Australia with his wife in February 1997 with just $4500 in their pockets.


A qualified radiographer and sonographer, Victor secured a job at Liverpool Hospital, but after a minor back injury while working he decided he needed more income security, so he started educating himself on investments in shares and property, and the principles of business.

In 1999, Victor purchased his first investment property, and from applying his investment knowledge from books, mentors and the numerous seminars he and his wife attended, has gone on to buy multiple investment properties each year. Victor constantly adjusts his portfolio in line with his goals and the market and now controls a multi-million dollar portfolio.

In 2001, he left his secure job as a sonographer, and started Right Group, where he started helping his clients achieve results in line with their own goals, using property as the vehicle.

He has applied  all the strategies highlighted in seminars and books to create a simple—yet effective— strategy that weathers the diverse market conditions to deliver results for his clients every single time.

Having invested so heavily himself, and still investing in today’s market, Victor’s guidance is tailored to an individual’s circumstances  and how to overcome any potential  hurdles. His experience in the early years have provided him with invaluable insight, having made every property investment mistake there is, so that you don’t have to go through the agony.

Now a sought after speaker at seminars, Victor Kumar has been running fortnightly education events at Parramatta Rydges since 2009 with his business partner Steve Waters. More than 20 investment properties have been purchased by attendees, thanks to guidance from Victor and his networking peers within the real estate and financial industries.

A self-confessed property tragic, Victor has no intention of slowing down, as he loves the property “game” too much. The other game he loves is soccer, and is still actively playing at competition level. He doesn’t really rate much as a golfer!
