Danny Buxton has always had a love for people, education and property. He first entered the property industry in the early 1990s before pursuing a career in education.
While teaching, Danny saw numerous colleagues retire and then re-enter the workforce because they could not live on their retirement income. Not wanting to be in a similar position, Danny started reading and researching and began his property investment portfolio and journey. As his property portfolio began to grow he left his teaching career to work full time in the property investment industry.
Over the years Danny has worked as a consultant and client manager for a large investment corporation winning numerous awards in recognition of achievements. He has also partnered in a fast growing investment and property services company before founding DBA Property Solutions. He holds a double degree in Education, Real Estate Licence and a Cert IV in Financial Services.
Danny’s passionate about seeing his clients reach their goals and is committed to seeing the financial aspirations of others become a reality. Danny loves spending time with his beautiful wife Cinty and two boys, Cooper and Harry. He is also actively involved in his local community and facilitates a regular business mentoring breakfast and sits on the board of a number of NGO’s. He has a belief that when you create wealth it is not just for oneself but for the benefit of those in your community and beyond. Danny is a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

Stuart Nixon has a passion for property born through a family legacy of property development in South Africa. This created an environment where he saw first hand how property enhanced and grew communities and provided individuals with long term benefits via property investment.
Stuart has a Bachelors degree from Griffith University and for the past 14 years he has worked in the Events and Sports industries. Stuart started in Event and Operational delivery running large scale events at Suncorp Stadium and for the Football Federation Australia, with a focus on relationship building. This strength coupled with his natural business ability assisted Stuart’s progression into the Sponsorship and Commercial arena working with the Brisbane ROAR FC. Experience gained in these fields has provided Stuart with a solid foundation for his work at DBA.
Stuart and his fiancee Shannon have invested in property, where they achieved reasonable returns through renovating, but after meeting Danny and gaining an understanding on the DBA property investment philosophy, their focus on strategic property investing has evolved. Stuart is now excited to share this knowledge with potential clients and existing contacts.
Stuart is a keen triathlete competing regularly at the Noosa Triathlon and also completed his first Iron Man in 2015 at Port Macquarie.
Stuart can be contacted directly on email@example.com or 0404 873 441.
Stella Reid first became involved with Danny Buxton as a client. She always had a passion for property, having built and renovated many properties with her husband. They had both been to a number of investment workshops before where they had walked away with more questions than answers. Having been invited by a friend to meet Danny, they finally found a workshop where their questions were answered. They started their investment journey with the help of Danny and his team and were so impressed with their integrity and passion to help their clients, that Stella became part of the team.
Stella, her husband Robbie and their two sons, Ethan and Kayne were all born in Tasmania. They moved to the Sunshine Coast in 2002 after stopping here to visit friends during a 12-month trip around Australia in their caravan.
