On Your Side Investments

We’re on your side every step of your investment journey

Ethical, Responsible and Transparent

At On Your Side Investments, we believe in making your investment life structured and yet simple as possible. We do this by surrounding you with a great team who are truly On Your Side. How? By bringing a range of trusted suppliers to you rather than force you to use ‘in-house’ divisions where the focus is on profit rather than your best interests.

We believe in collaborating with ethical suppliers who are great at their field and give you the best value.
We don’t take a cent in referral fees but make sure any bonuses get paid back to you to boost YOUR finances rather than ours.

Mike Harvey
Owner and Principal Consultant

Mike is a savvy property investor, serial entrepreneur, author and humanitarian. At 22 Mike had started his first business, after 10 years in Credit and Analytical roles Mike then bought an Awesome Water Franchise, which he later sold for a healthy profit. Post sale, Mike moved to Queensland to become the COO for a national water company as they identified his inherent business acumen and ability to manage and lead people. In a few short years, he became CEO of the company.

Mike has always had a passion for property investment and started his portfolio at 35 and have been growing and refining it ever since. Through the years Mike has been exposed to some SHARKS in the industry and seen how their practises can impact families. A desire to help people succeed and invest in safe and reliable property led Mike to not only start “On Your Side Investments” but to also write his first book, entitled “How to Jump into Property Investing – without being Eaten by Sharks”.

Mike is an active participant in many professional and charitable associations including Links Hope Island Golf Club, BNI Elite Division, Gold Coast Basket Brigade, and the Toogoolawa School for Boys which supports young men who don’t fit into mainstream schooling. His love for life and love of helping others lead him to participate in two of the hardest and life changing charity fundraisers. The fundraisers included a mountain bike trek across the Serengeti in Tanzania, and walking the Kokoda Track, raising not only money, but also awareness for the charities.

Mike is an avid golfer and has won two International Masters golf titles. Just tell Mike you want to discuss your next investment on the golf course and I’m sure he will happily oblige.

Geoff Tomkins Investment Consultant


Coming from the construction industry has given me great experience on the standards in the industry and many years of renovating, building new and subdividing helps me understand and answer the questions many investors have. I believe understanding the numbers and cash flow of a property before making a decision is crucial and I love seeing my clients building their portfolios.


We’re here to help your investment dreams become a reality.


Hear about the On Your Side Difference

At 50 something, my wife and I decided that after years of taking care of others, it was time to build some financial wealth for our retirement. Better late than never I thought.
Mike shattered all my sales people stereotypes, he knew we were in no financial position to buy a property but had all the time in the world to explain a formula for buying property that works as well as helping me make some lifestyle changes and set some goals. Most importantly he listened to understand our circumstances.
