Veteran winger Sam Perrett, whose season ended on Friday night when the Bulldogs lost their NRL semi-final, has established a property investment and development company, The Perrett Group.

The 30-year-old Kiwi international buys land, builds houses, then offers them for sale or investment, mostly around Sydney.

He’s just completed a four bedroom, two-bathroom family home at Gledswood Hills on a $254,000 block in the new housing estate near Camden.

He now plans to build a display home at Campbelltown to showcase his design and construction expertise. “People will be invited to invest in The Perrett Group,” said Perrett, who has completed a carpentry apprenticeship, and obtained a builder’s licence and a diploma of business.

“We will purchase and develop land, then build and sell our homes. Everyone involved will benefit from our profits”.

An ambassador for the Housing Industry Association, and the NRL Trading Up program where he mentors apprentice tradies, Perrett joined the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in 2012 from the Sydney Roosters.

The Perrett Group slogan is “building and improving life” – a mantra Perrett seeks to apply to his personal and sporting pursuits.
