Nicole's property journey has done nothing short of skyrocket since she left Goldman Sachs as an investment banker in 2009. She'd been an accidental landlord for a few years whilst working in New York, but upon her return to the UK she renovated the once tenanted property and fell in love with the process. She'd finally found something where she could work the hours that suited her family life with three kids, whilst still contributing significantly to the household income.
Her first major project was a 4,000 square feet Grade 2 listed vicarage - not something she'd recommend to anyone else as their first project - and she now works alongside an experienced JV partner on some seriously impressive high-end central london conversions, construction projects, and renovations.

Steve is a successful entrepreneur, best-selling published author and Founder of Platinum Property Partners. Having made his first million before he was 30, Steve encountered financial difficulties like many other business owners during the downturn of 2001. In what he describes as the ‘best worst experience of his life’ he realised that it was his home that saved him from bankruptcy. As a result, he was inspired to rebuild his fortune on the solid foundation of buy-to-let property investment.
Through extensive research and development, he discovered the robust residential letting model of premium ‘Houses of Multiple Occupancy’ for young professionals and set about building his own portfolio. After three years he had built up a £6 million portfolio and achieved lifelong financial security. He then focussed on his passion for mentoring others and decided to franchise the tried, tested and proven business model to others.
Platinum Property Partners was launched in 2007 and has since become the UK’s fastest growing premium franchise in UK history. More than 200 Platinum Property Partners have purchased over £200 million of property since 2007. Steve’s vast experience in the sector has led to him becoming an industry-leading speaker and commentator in national press and on TV and author of the highly-acclaimed book, ‘Successful Property Investing: How to earn £50,000 to £150,000 in two to five years’.

Until 3 years ago Francis was a builder working away happily with his team in the Somerset countryside. Due to a change of personal circumstances and a realisation of what his pension was really worth he decided to embark upon an adventure and jumped full time into property investing.
Francis now works with his daughter Emily, and together they have created the brilliant Rent 2 Rent community - the Multi-Let Cashflow System. This now has more than 500 members and Francis and Emily pride themselves on being one of the most results based training companies in the business.
Their plans are to continue growing and supporting this community and to steadily increase their own property portfolio.

Being registered blind at the age of 8 might sound like enough to put most people off pursuing self-employment, but with a natural flourish for music Steve took his first attempt at building a business as a piano tuner in the 1980s. Plenty of work followed, but he quickly realised the difference between being self-employed and building a scalable business.
It was around this time that he bought his first property, and has watched it increase in value from £34,000 to £360,000 over 30 years. With his pension plummeting, he decided to invest in his own personal development with property education and has since built a portfolio of property worth £1.3million pounds that generates almost £70,000 income per year.

Jason originally qualified as a Chartered Surveyor and worked as a planning consultant on large commercial development projects. He started investing in property in 1991 alongside his job but had only one property up until 1997 when he started investing more seriously.
He became a full time investor in 2000 and built his business rapidly to around 200 properties within 7 years. He also bought and sold more than 30 properties in that period. The credit crunch did prove very challenging but he successfully steered his business through that difficult time and still owns and manages a portfolio of nearly 200 properties which he is now expanding using creative financial strategies.
