Today I am delighted to be joined by Bernie Wales. Bernie is well known on the UK property circuit as the Leasehold expert and has no doubt helped many of you create value through title splitting freehold properties, but how much do you know about how he became the expert? 

Bernie has been involved in property management since the 1970's, ultimately growing a property management business with 10,000 units under management before selling out to 4 of his employees. 

He's also been growing his own portfolio for much of that time, predominantly following his own advice of buying freehold blocks of flats and splitting them into individual units.

Property investing brothers Ben & Tom Thorns have made an impressive transition into the property industry from their previous life running a digital marketing agency.

In this interview we catch up with them half way through a 12 month period where we track their property investing goals and progress throughout 2017 (watch the first interview here - https://youtu.be/zqESz6rL1hY).

Their focus is on land sourcing and property development, and they have some amazing systems in place to scale this process and grow their development pipeline, but a large chunk of their success so far this year has come from rent to rent deals as well.

These guys have already had some great success, but have got even more exciting things lined up for their future as property investors.

Marc is the first of our 2017 Property Goals guests to return for the mid-year review. 

Back in January Marc was on the brink of leaving the corporate world behind after realising he'd rather be building his own portfolio than continue the day job as a commercial construction project manager, and with only a few months until the end of his notice period he had some serious work to do in order to replace his income before the pay checks stopped coming in.

This show marks the half way point in the year. We're 6 months in and have 6 months still to go, so it's a great time to catch up with each of the investors in this series and find out what they've been up to so far, what progress they've made towards their goals, and what their plans are for the next 6 months.

Kevin Stewart is a Member of the Scottish Parliament and the Minister for Local Government & Housing.  He was present at the Lend Invest Academy we attended recently (which I found very interesting in itself), and gave a short presentation on property development from a politician's perspective.

 

He talked through some of the plans around the housing market and property development in the future, as well as what he feels the SNP have been doing already to impact this market.  

 

I'd love to hear if you think there's anything here which could/should be reapplied to the rest of the UK, or if it's just another politician without very much to say.

Today I am delighted to be joined by Dan Hulbert. Dan was originally on the show on episode 152 when we learnt about Dan's approach to helping others enter the world of property investment with his networking organisation, The Property Vault, as well as talking through some of his own deals. 

With a background as a builder though,  he's got a lot of valuable knowledge in his head, so I wanted to get him back on to talk through his own 7 step refurbishment process, all the way from viewings to completing the project.

Today I am delighted to be joined by Tina Walsh, a retired police officer and mother of 3 who works full time in her property business alongside her husband Tony.

Together they are passionate about growing their own portfolio as well as sourcing properties for other investors through their company Sanctuary Property Sourcing. So passionate in fact, that Tina has taken it upon herself to write the book on property sourcing compliance, something which is desperately needed in the property industry.

Today I am delighted to be joined by Lee Pemberton, an investor who had a hunch the serviced accommodation industry was going to explode 18 years ago, only about 17 years before most of us had even heard about it.

Thankfully for him, he acted on that hunch and built a successful business around the serviced accommodation industry as well as growing an impressive portfolio of property development projects.

Nicole Bremner is a London based property investor who has built her phenomenal East Eight company with the help of active social media brand building, exploring creative fundraising options for her developments, and partnering up with some great people to complement her own skill set.

We spent the day with Nicole to understand how her property business operates, and to look at some of the development deals she's working on including a large commercial to residential conversion in Brent Cross, converting 5 office blocks into studio apartments, and a luxury home renovation in Central London.

During the day we got the chance to ask about property crowdfunding, structuring a property development business for growth, and the financials behind her permitted development deal and the luxury property development project.

Today is the 15th of our monthly updates, which is the first in a couple of months actually, and whilst Victoria will be joining me in the second half to discuss our own property progress, first I want to welcome back to the show a guy who has helped me and many of our listeners get some amazing finance products on property deals. 

You might remember Howard Bowes from episode 76 where he shared his own property story, but today he's back with his mortgage hat on to give us a bit of an update on that area of the market.

Today I am delighted to be joined by Mike Howman.  Mike is business partner to Shaun Callacher, one of our very early guests from episode 14 and some of you may even remember that Mike joined us on a webinar a couple of years ago talking about lease options, one of his areas of expertise. 

He's had a hugely successful property career over the past 6 years, entering the industry after losing his previous business during the recession.  Despite the financial and emotional strain that put on him and his family, he learnt some big lessons from the experience and started his property journey by surrounding himself with a great team, creating systems very early in his property business, and staying extremely focussed whilst the business was growing.

He's now got two great property businesses that he's extremely proud of.  Mantra Homes which is building new homes across the north west with a project pipeline worth £50 million, and prosper by property which is his education platform for training and mentoring property investors.

Today I am delighted to be joined by Fredrik Sandvall. Fredrik has a pretty diverse background, some of which we will no doubt discuss during the show but to give you a sense of who we're speaking to he has worked in diplomatic relations, been an intelligence officer, worked in a couple of different wars, performed surgery, been a strategy consultant, and has managed property in the UK, Sweden, Israel, Congo, Lebanon, Pakistan and India. 

He's celebrating 20 years in commercial property, of which the last 4 have been more active in terms of portfolio growth with a particular focus on HMOs.

Today I am delighted to be joined by Sarah Poynton Ryan. Sarah spent 14 years honing her skills in sales and marketing after she landed her first accidental job in a sales role based on the fact she liked to talk a lot. In that time she built and sold her first business, but after hitting a stage in 2015 where she was £60,000 in debt with credit cards and loans, she knew something needed to change. 

 She'd always had a passion for property investing so started to educate herself and 2 months later secured her first rent to rent HMO. The leads started to flow in and she realised this was another potentially lucrative arm to her business, selling on the deals that didn't fit her own requirements, and since then both her rent to rent and deal sourcing businesses have blossomed.

Property sourcing is a massive part of any property investment strategy, but it's also one of the biggest challenges so many of us property investors face.

The market is heating up pretty quickly, making good property deals harder and harder to find. They do still exist though, you just need to get more creative with how you find them.

That's why we recorded this video with some of the top property sourcers in the UK to find out exactly how they source their best deals, and what tactics are working for them.

These guys really know their stuff, so it's well worth spending some time learning from the best property sourcers in the industry and hopefully you can pick up some tips to help you source your next property deal as well.

Today I am delighted to be joined by Frazer Fearnhead, CEO of the House Crowd, a property crowdfunding platform launched in 2012.

 

Frazer started his professional life as a solicitor in the music industry, before going on to launch several successful businesses of his own. Alongside his various careers, he began investing in his own property portfolio in 1994 and decided almost 20 years later that property crowdfunding was the solution to help people overcome the frustration of poorly performing pensions and savings.

 

Since then his company has gone on to win many awards and fund hundreds of property deals, not only helping those frustrated investors get a fantastic return but also helping ambitious developers with an alternative to bank finance.

Today I am delighted to be joined by Bill Loryman.  Bill is the managing director of HMO Tax and the sales director of The Bailey Group.  These companies offer a range of commercial and property tax services, but on one of Bill's specialist subjects is capital allowances. This is a subject that many property investors know little about, but one that has the potential to save a lot of  us a lot of money is handled in the right way. 

It's something I wasn't really familiar with until a few months ago, so I invited Bill along to give us an overview of what exactly they are, and who can take advantage of them.
