    What’s the big deal? With Shack Baker

    What’s the big deal? With Shack Baker

    In today’s episode, Dan interviews Shack Baker who is the Founder and CEO of The Property Shack. The company sources and develops off-market land and airspace opportunities utilising offsite manufacturing and modern methods of construction. 
     
    Alongside that, he is a Co-Director of Leap Factory UK, an offsite construction company that supplies high-performance eco friendly and sustainable buildings. Ideal for self-builders and developers looking for a zero-carbon build system. 
     
    Shack, is also a creative entrepreneur, mentor and host of the Watford property investors network (pin) meeting. In 2020 he won the strategy of the year award on Property Entrepreneur for offsite construction and airspace development. He is currently in the process of shooting the first series of online production ‘What’s The Big Deal?’ which delves into large residential development schemes and the method of construction behind them. 
    One of Shack's main passions is to support and give back to the community. To do this he has created a social enterprise called H.O.P.E. (Haus Of Performing Excellence) which helps young people at risk and ex-offenders get training in offsite construction and self-development.
    Hope you enjoy the episode.

    ABOUT THE HOST:
    Firstly thanks for tuning into the podcast.
    Dan Hulbert can back up the content from lessons and successes he has had over the last 20 years of being in and around construction, property and business. His journey started on the tools and then progressed in construction management. 
    For a long time, he craved more from life and want to work for himself, this led to pursuing a career in property.  Dan works with great people and partners and has created several businesses like Hulsford property group and Hulhomes Property Investments plus his baby Building on Solid Foundation principles.  
    Dan decided it would be a good idea to share his Practical Property investing experience and Construction knowledge through the podcast along with life and business lessons. There are a lot of moving parts in property and the world is saturated with theory, but what is needed is practical wisdom which is exactly what the podcast offers.

    Zoe Conning from Amana Lettings

    Zoe Conning from Amana Lettings

    In today’s episode, Dan interviews Zoe Conning who is the Founder and Managing Director of Amana Lettings, the go-to property management company in Cheshire helping landlords invest, develop and manage anything from a 1-bed studio apartment to an 88 bed hotel conversion!
     
    She started her property journey back in 2013 after becoming an Operations Director for a Property Development Company, loving it SO much, she dropped out of uni (sorry, Mum!) to manage over 250 tenants, whilst being on call 24/7 – which is where she fell in love with property and running a business.
     
    In 2017, Zoe took some time away from property to gain more business experience; working in IT, Cyber Security, and Customer Services before launching Amplo Lettings alongside Matt & Scott in 2019. 2021 sees Zoe buying business partners out and becoming independent to rebrand as Amana Lettings & Property Management.
     
    Interesting Fact:
    Zoe enjoys going to the gym, studying meditation and mindset and will be found most weekends at either Sandbach FC where she plays for the women's team, or at the Etihad cheering on Man City!!
     
    Hope you enjoy the episode.

    ABOUT THE HOSTS:
    Firstly thanks for tuning into our podcast.
    We are Dan Hulbert and Gary Sandford and what we share, we practice and can back up the content with over 50 years combined experience in construction and 20 years in property investment and development.  Both our journeys started on the tools and progressed our careers in construction management. We were both craving more and wanting to work for ourselves, this separately led to pursuing a career in property. We were both travelling down our own B-roads and came together to create our very own A road where we are investing, developing, and educating others in property and together created the Hulsford property group and Building on Solid Foundations. 
     
    We decided it would be a good idea to share this combination of Practical Property experience and Building Knowledge through our podcast. We understand there are a lot of moving parts in property and the world is saturated with theory, but what is needed is practical wisdom and that is exactly what we offer. 
     
    Our main focus is working with local authorities in London to provide them with Emergency housing, where we are currently working with 14 different local authorities. We provide quality property on a rent-to-rent basis and we work with private investors to fund those opportunities. Since June 2020 we have supplied over 1,600 properties and helped over 10,000 people in need of a place to stay and be secure. We have also built our portfolio since working together which will be 12 properties in total once built or converted.
