Tim Allwood

Tim Allwood

Director And Senior Property Strategist

AKA: Timmy, Boss, The Guy in The Speedo’s 

Mad keen Parramatta Eels Supporter, and Surf Lifesaver.

This born & bred Central QLD’er made 2 life changing decisions when he was 18 years of age.

  1. He fell in love with his highschool sweetheart Maureen
  2. He bought his first investment property.

The past 3 ½ decades have seen ‘Team Allwood’ fight the odds, building successful businesses, property wealth and raising two amazing children, including one with very special needs.

Maureen Allwood

Maureen Allwood

Financial Controller / Administration Manager

AKA: The Chief.

The Brains behind the Braun. The Fixer. Multiple Hat Wearer. Timmy Tamer.

The Real Boss of Compass PI.

Maureen started her career as a Registered nurse, something that’s definitely come in handy being married to Tim!

She decided to join Tim in managing their Financial Planning Company and added a Financial Planning qualification to her Resume.

The time came for them to relocate to the Gold Coast in order to provide access to better health facilities for their daughter…and a beach for Tim to get back into his Surf Lifesaving. Burleigh is home now and Maureen loves the healthy lifestyle.

She can be found each morning at the Gym with the girls, or down at the beach.
Maureen somehow manages to juggle fitness, work, motherhood and keeping Tim on the straight and narrow.

The hideous looking green concoction in the drink bottle on her desk, may have something to do with her superpowers…we’ll take her word on that!
