Built on Integrity & Trust

The JLF Group’s expertise lies in the Land.

The JLF Group’s core discipline is property development with experience in both residential and commercial projects. Our specialty is residential land development, having created over 5,000 allotments and more than 10,000 house and land packages.

The group was established in 1981 by John Leonard Fitzgerald when he was just 18 years of age. John has successfully traded for 36 years as the CEO. The group comprises of offices in five states and employs over 90 staff. The group’s 10 acre head office is located on the Nerang River on the Gold Coast. It includes a 300-seat auditorium, a 5,000-member gymnasium, recording and teleconference facilities as well as a lounge-café.

John wrote a book about how to invest more than 25 years ago. Thousands of Australians have read the book and followed the strategy ever since. While JLF may be best known to developers, builders and real estate agents, the Australian public will be more familiar with the following two divisions of JLF:

· Custodian – educates Australians on how to follow the right strategy to build wealth via residential property investment.

· Investloan – focuses on the needs of Australian families to assess their best position to undertake property.

The meaning behind what we do... The WHY.

John Fitzgerald started the Toogoolawa schools when he was in his early 20’s, and the JLF group contributes to the cause every single day, with $11 Million donated to date. The Toogoolawa model is unique to the Schools and has been designed to revolve around the five universal Human Values of Truth, Love, Peace, Right Conduct and Non-violence.
In the 35 years of Toogoolawa's operations, over 1,580 students have gone through the Schools.

· About one third of the boys have integrated back into mainstream schooling.

· Others enter traineeships or TAFE courses.

· 85% of the students leave Toogoolawa and take on some form of work or study.

This is our WHY.
