Today I'm thrilled to be joined by James Davis, CEO of uPad, the UK's largest online lettings agency.
He should be pretty comfortable here today as he started his career in the world of radio after setting up his own station at university and being awarded best student station of the year by BBC Radio one. Whilst scaling the corporate ladder after graduating though he began to grow his own property portfolio, and then 10 years ago founded what has gone on to become the largest online lettings agency in the UK.
In this episode I get some great tips and insights from James on successful rental property advertising.

Jade got her first taste of the property game 7 years ago and has been steadily growing her portfolio ever since.
In the last year, she’s made the switch to working in property full time and now has 3 HMO projects in progress. Balancing property and two small children is no walk in the park, but Jade consistently puts in the hard work and is starting to reap the rewards.
Last week we were joined in Manchester by Sarah Smith, Chris Brown and Francisco Diaz, 3 investors who have all taken different approaches to managing their growing portfolios.
That's what we focus on in this episode, talking about the pros and cons of self-managing vs using an agent, and how to know when it's time to get help with your properties.

Today we've got an interview I'm really excited about as we're going to focus on one of my favourite things - spending less time working instead of more!
About two years ago I had the real pleasure of interviewing Jackie Tomes for the first time, and as per our usual format we covered her own property story and how, at the time, she'd been able to build a property portfolio worth almost one and a half million with an annual rent roll of over £100k and a £40k net profit.
That in itself was a great story, and if you haven't come across Jackie before I'd suggest going back and listening to that, but today not only do I have the chance to catch up with Jackie but also to be joined by her husband David to discuss how their business has progressed in those two years, but more importantly how they've been able to create a business that works for them rather than the other way around.
