Dan Irwin


Property has always been a keen interest of mine. My parents have ingrained the need to start investing as soon as possible deep into my psyche. My wife Anne and I are very keen property investors and have been patiently growing our own property portfolio – adding more properties along the way and completing small scale sub-divisions.

After completing a 11-year career in the Australian Army specialising in Engineering and Project Management, I have now found my passion – helping highly motivated individuals, their family and friends build property portfolios that are stress free and self-supporting.

With the experiences gained through building my own portfolio coupled with helping hundreds of clients acquire high-performing properties since 2017, I can not only help new-buyers enter the market; but also support the more sophisticated property strategies.

With a passion to help the ADF Community, I am ready to help with your homebuying needs. As a proud veteran myself, and a background in Finance, I believe that my values of hard work, integrity and outstanding client services have equipped me with the tools to serve the people who serve.

With a sharp knowledge of the property market, I’ve helped over 150 families find the right property to suit their goals. Working with people no matter where they are at in their property journey is a fun and exciting experience.

My down time away from Strike is filled with running around after my family and trying to squeeze in a few surfs.

Jane Kelly

Operations Manager

As the Operations Manager at Strike Property, my role is varied and
allows me to utilise my experience across many different facets of
the business. I get to be a part of our client’s journeys from the
beginning of the acquisition process, right through construction and

I utilise the experience I have gained through my 12 + years in the
Real Estate and Construction industries – working with builders,
developers, clients, and many other service professionals. I have
completed my Cert IV in Project Management in Practice through
Master Builders Queensland. I’m very passionate about construction
and love the value I can bring to our clients because of that passion
and experience.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and
our four boys. There is never a dull moment in our home, that’s for

After completing a 10-year career in the Australian Army, I trained and worked as an Advocate helping veterans navigate the complex DVA and ComSuper claims process. After relocating to sunny Brisbane, I started a career in the Real Estate and Construction industry where I really found my passion. I continued to grow my knowledge working for a Brisbane based builder in pre-site administration, contract documentation, building applications to Private Certifiers and Council, developer covenant and managing workflow between Drafting and Estimating. 

With the help of Strike’s Property Investment Advisors, Dan and Dane, my partner, a Carpenter in the Australian Army, and I have been building our own property portfolio, acquiring 6 properties between us, with the plan to continue to grow our portfolio.  

In my downtime you will find me renovating our 100-year-old Queenslander (not for the faint hearted) or exploring Brisbane with our two Dachshunds and Kelpie x Cattle rescue dog.

Renee Macartney

Operations Assistant

My property journey began back in 2018 when my career in defence was cut short due to injuries. Over the last 5-6 years I’ve gained experience in the industry working in a range or roles including Build Support Management and Property Valuations. I love that I now get to utilise the experience and the knowledge I’ve gained in those roles, in order to help Strike Property clients achieve financial freedom through property. 

My partner and I have built a healthy property portfolio, which we did with the assistance of the Strike Property team. Being a passionate property investor with long term investment goals stands me in good stead to assist our clients in their own journeys. 

I’m a proud Dog-Mum to Milo, our Mini Bullterrier and love spending time with my partner, family and friends. I can often be found on the beach or out boating with a glass of red in hand and a cheese platter close by. 

Strike Property has a team of qualified professionals in co-operation with service providers who are the best in the business dedicated to getting you on the pathway to success
