1Group founders, Julian and Tal, worked collaboratively across their Melbourne and Sydney based businesses for a number of years, supporting each other’s clients and sharing research. It was a natural progression to join forces and create one firm that has extensive expertise and resources, operating across the Eastern seaboard. Most importantly, Julian and Tal share a common vision to be the most trusted people in property. 1Group is both big enough to offer you a comprehensive service and cutting-edge research, and small enough to remain personal and nimble in the market. Our team provides a boutique level of service, but with the knowledge, resources and skill set of a large agency.

Leadership
Tal Eloss, Founding Partner
Tal has an extensive education background having studied medical science, law, financial planning, mortgage broking and real estate. After success in the financial planning industry, Tal decided to focus solely on property due to his belief that property was the lynch pin to successful wealth creation.
Tal Eloss, Founding Partner

Tal has an extensive education background having studied medical science, law, financial planning, mortgage broking and real estate.
 
In 2005 Tal founded a multi-disciplined financial planning firm, which predominately serviced medical and legal professionals. His passion for education led him to develop CPD accredited programs for various industry bodies.
 
In 2011 he shifted focus solely to the property advisory division of his business due to his belief that property was the lynch pin to successful wealth creation.
 
Tal was fortunate to encounter the kindness of others throughout defining moments of his career. Those individuals provided him with a support structure through his most difficult periods and selflessly gave their time and energy to provide him with life changing guidance. Helping people, whether it be team members, colleagues or clients is the most rewarding part of his role as Director as it is born out of his desire to pay forward the kindness others have shown him.
 
Alina and Ayla, Tal’s beautiful daughters, keep him busy when he’s not in the office and when time permits he enjoys an early morning on the golf course and the sound of a line being taken from his fishing rod.

Julian Muldoon, Director and Founding Partner
Julian’s success with residential and commercial property acquisitions nationally and vast experience in the corporate world meant he had a compelling vision of what a great real estate advisory business should look like.
Julian Muldoon, Director and Founding Partner

Julian Muldoon is Director and founding partner of 1Group Property Advisory. After using a buyer’s agent himself in his early investing years and studying financial planning, Julian sought to enter the property industry with a business that would do things differently. His success with residential and commercial property acquisitions nationally and vast experience in the corporate world meant he had a compelling vision of what a great real estate advisory business should look like.

The challenge of staying on top of the constantly changing property market, as well as building genuine relationships with clients are a couple of Julian’s most loved roles as Director. He also enjoys leading a team of great people with aligned values and having a positive impact on their lives and their clients alike.

Julian has a unique combination of incredible life experience, many years in leadership roles and high-end recruitment in the banking sector, as well as a long-standing passion for building his own property portfolio.

Challenges don’t stop in the workplace for Julian. He’s completed several 24-hour mountain bike races and ran in the Oxfam 100km. On the weekend you’ll catch him training, with his Labrador Jack in tow, having an early morning surf or enjoying a glass of red with his wife, Kate, reading his latest book.

More recently, Julian and Kate welcomed their first child, Jade, into the world and he thoroughly enjoys the privilege of being a father.

The holistic view of finance, property, investment strategy and lifestyle is what Thomas brings to the team at 1Group Property Advisory.

Thomas' interest and extensive education in the property market took him on a journey to becoming a valuer in Sydney and then to the purchase of his first investment property.
