    Manoj Varsani on incorporating technology into his property business and creating Hammock for other investors

    Manoj Varsani on incorporating technology into his property business and creating Hammock for other investors

    Today, I'm delighted to be joined by Manoj Varsani, a part-time property investor and a technology expert who wanted to put his skills to use and create more efficiency in his portfolio and move away from all the spreadsheets and paper notes that he was relying on to manage everything. Now, this is where the idea for Hammock came from, the property finance platform you've been hearing about for the past few months as one of our major podcast sponsors. I wanted to get Manoj on the show to hear more about his own portfolio and how he got started with investing. But also how and why he decided to build another business alongside the property portfolio, based on his own frustrations and drive to simplify the processes. I hope, as always, that you get some ideas for your own property investing, but also a glimpse into how a secondary business can become a complimentary, or even main, income stream for you if you're passionate enough about solving a problem that others are facing as well.

    Dean Starr on social housing and his route into investing in property

    Dean Starr on social housing and his route into investing in property

    Today, I'm delighted to be joined by Dean Starr, a developer with a social conscience who started out in property in a fairly typical fashion with student houses in Huddersfield. He had a desire to simplify his income so he could move him and his family to New Zealand. But things didn't exactly go to plan and a chance meeting with an old colleague who was also investing in property, led him on a path to create Cornerstone Partnership, a social enterprise that is trying to make an impact on the housing crisis with social housing. In fact, it is making an impact on the housing crisis in the UK by following the Aldi model, one of the companies that Dean worked at before he ventured into the world of property- high quality and high volume at low cost. Without a doubt, this is one of the most interesting conversations that I've had on the podcast for a while and whether you're just starting out or a seasoned developer, there are lessons in here that you can take and apply to your own business.

    David Lenton on building an unencumbered portfolio and leveraging growth

    David Lenton on building an unencumbered portfolio and leveraging growth

    Today, I am delighted to be joined by David Lenton, the founder of an SEO and digital marketing agency who started looking at property initially in 2018 as a place to protect and diversify his wealth. He started out by building up an unencumbered portfolio, thinking that when his capital ran out, he would stop with the property.
    But, you know how the story goes and, by that point, he'd developed a real interest in the industry, finding that his knowledge of the property business grew with every new deal he made and every new contact too. Now, he's looking to leverage the existing portfolio to fund continued growth and during the interview, we talk about his views on things like sourcing in the current climate, the serviced accommodation market now and in the future, and how he plans to scale up the portfolio while continuing to run his marketing business.

    Mary and Andrew Osman on HMO investing, design-led properties and overcoming obstacles

    Mary and Andrew Osman on HMO investing, design-led properties and overcoming obstacles

    Today I'm delighted to be joined by Andrew and Mary - qualified architects with over 20 years of combined experience working on projects in the UK and in Australia. Now, they spend most of their time focused on their investments in Leeds and their business Elite Dwellings - primarily HMOs, but starting to work on larger residential conversions and developments as well.
    During the interview, they share the details of how they got started with their own portfolio when a major roadblock was put in their way, and why they believe their focus on design not only adds value but also saves them money.

    Richard Nicholls on the ins and outs of selling HMOs and what makes a good one

    Richard Nicholls on the ins and outs of selling HMOs and what makes a good one

    Today I'm delighted to be joined by Richard Nicholls, founder of The Property Advantage which as far as I can tell is the larger specialist HMO brokerage in the UK, helping landlords by selling HMOs they no longer want, and investors buy ready-made income-producing assets.
    Richard's approach is to view every HMO the company sells, so with hundreds of transactions completed he's probably got a better insight into what makes a good HMO, and as importantly, what makes a bad one than virtually anyone else in the UK. 
    So why's he on the show today? Well, his business partner Jessica contacted me a few weeks ago and we had a good chat about the HMO industry and their unique insights into it. I explained that we were opening our Inside HMO Investing Programme at the end of March and that I'd love to present his story to show an alternative exit route for HMO landlords, as well as his general views on what is and isn't working with the properties he views and the HMO market generally.
