Annual General Meeting - Landlord of the Year 2015, Angela Strang
Welcome to the 42nd Annual General Meeting of the OPIA. Following on from the AGM we will hear from Angela Strang of Southland who won the MBIE Landlord of the Year competition in 2015. Angela started investing at an early age and now has a solid property portfolio which has enabled her to become the mistress of her own destiny. As the oldest child of a solo parent on the domestic purposes benefit, she developed self-reliance and an entrepreneurial bent at a young age. In the past, those traits have led her to drive tractors in the UK and put in the hard yards in Western Australiaâ€™s tough mining industry. But these days they serve her well as she manages, maintains and further cultivates her investment property holdings.
