    Nurse to Property Investor | How I Got Started From Zero

    In this episode, Kevin speaks with ex-nurse Chloe Tyrell who has a portfolio of single let and HMO properties with her partner. After learning more with Progressive they are now entering the commercial conversions market too. Listen in to hear all about Chloe’s journey to becoming a property investor full time and learn some great tips and ideas for how you can start your property journey with Progressive too!

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 
    Chloe was in her early 20s when she decided to invest in a buy to let, there was no strategy this was just something to help her when she retired one day.
    It was 2019 when Chloe and her partner had some changes in their lives. It led them to look at property and this is how they found Progressive Property and worked to getting into property as a full time venture.
    Chloe has attended many Progressive Property courses to build her property portfoli including MSOPI, No Money Down and Commercial Conversions. The education has definitely fast-tracked her on her property journey and helped her avoid some costly mistakes.
    Making relationships and perseverance are two of the biggest skills Chloe has had to master to progress and sustain her property career.
    Having a peer group and a mentor is reassuring and supportive, it has helped Chloe achieve her goals.
    Communication is the most important thing in any partnership. Being in business with each other as well as a romantic relationship, clear communication is integral as well as splitting responsibilities.



    BEST MOMENTS  

    “That four-day course pretty much summarised everything we had done in an 18-month period”

    “It would have sped the process up and it would have saved on any costly mistakes”

    “Have a bit on introspection and know a bit about yourself and what you really want and what is holding you back too”

    How I Did 32 Property Deals in 2 Years!

    How I Did 32 Property Deals in 2 Years!

    Kevin is joined by Muzzy, a property dealer based in Nuneaton. He talks to Kevin about his own personal property journey and how Progressive Property helped him with his fast route to success in property

    Progressive Property’s Co-Founder, Rob Moore, has teamed up with our lead trainer, Kevin McDonnell to bring you the 2022 edition of our bestselling book, Multiple Streams of Property Income.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 
    Muzzy got into property almost by accident. He saw an opportunity to join a property course for free to learn about investing and this is what got him interested.
    It was June 2019 when Muzzy found Progressive. He did the MSOPI course first which led to him completing the Rent2Rent course and mastermind.
    It’s essential to have a cashflow strategy when getting into property investing.
    It’s important to gain and understanding of why you want to get into property and what it is you want to achieve.
    No money down felt impossible to Muzzy before he learnt about how to make it happen, now it feels so simple.
    Until Muzzy undertook Progressive training, he thought there was only one way to own property. The courses opened his eyes and inspired him to build his own property empire.
    Life has changed considerably for Muzzy and his family. It has allowed not only him to follow his passion but his wife too.
    The knowledge Muzzy learnt from Progressive was essential. Even now he recognises that he wouldn’t have been able to have the success he has had by going it alone.





    BEST MOMENTS  

    “I was still slightly sceptic until I bought my own property with none of my own money”

    “You can take that problem away, generate cash for yourself and help someone else [too]”

    “I didn’t think it would happen this quickly”

    “I don’t need to know everything I just need to know the people that know”

    How I Got My First 2 Investment Properties

    How I Got My First 2 Investment Properties

    Nick based in Southampton joins Kevin in this episode. Nick started in property 4 years ago, where he struggled at first but in the past 12 months he has managed to really accelerate his property journey. Listen in to hear be inspired by what he did to turn things around and learn what you can do to step-up your property journey too!


    Progressive Property’s Co-Founder, Rob Moore, has teamed up with our lead trainer, Kevin McDonnell to bring you the 2022 edition of our bestselling book, Multiple Streams of Property Income.
    GET YOUR UPDATED VERSION HERE >>> msopi.live/book



    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Nick was working a job in manufacturing when he read the book Rich Dad Poor Dad, this was the catalyst that made him decide he needed to earn more money and led him to starting his property journey.


    He began looking at free property content in places like YouTube and attending free events in London. This is how he decided that the UK property market was for him.


    Nick didn’t have cash for a deposit so after more research started looking at rent2rent strategies. He started off with Serviced Accommodation but then moved into HMO’s after attending the Progressive Rent2Rent online course.


    Once live events started up again, Nick travelled down to Peterborough to attend the Progressive No Money Down Event. He got so much value from this course that he then signed up to the mastermind and it has helped him accelerate his property journey.


    When using the rent to rent strategy, it’s a myth that you need lots of landlords and agents. Often you just need one and they will feed you the best deals.


    Nick never realised how important networking was until he found Progressive. He has found the progressive community incredibly valuable and it has helped him so much along the way including securing many of his deals.



    BEST MOMENTS



    “I went to no money down and got lots of value”

    “ I have the worst boss possible and it’s myself, I work full time in property”

    “You don’t need lots of landlords, sometimes you just need one”

    How I Buy Houses for Free! Property Investing Q&A

    How I Buy Houses for Free! Property Investing Q&A

    Kevin has over 19 years’ experience in property, using creative property techniques to build his multi-million property portfolio. Join him in this Q&A where he answers many property questions frankly and informatively. Topics discussed include the role of landlords in the property market in 2022, what type of mortgage you should be getting and why your property knowledge is so much more important than what you have in the bank.

    Progressive Property’s Co-Founder, Rob Moore, has teamed up with our lead trainer, Kevin McDonnell to bring you the 2022 edition of our bestselling book, Multiple Streams of Property Income.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    You don’t always need to have a 25 year repayment mortgage. With investment properties you can simply have interest only mortgages. This keeps the mortgage payment lower.
    It’s worth spending a bit more on the finish of a refurb in order to charge higher rent. You can also join LNPG to get great savings on your refurbishment costs.
    Simply investing all your life savings into a property isn’t a property strategy. Building a portfolio is all about your plan. You don’t even need your own cash to start in the property game, it’s about having the right knowledge to get you started.
    Buy to let landlords are not stopping other people buying homes and they have not caused inflation.
    No matter what, you need to be doing the fundamentals of buy to let: buy, refurbish, let, refinance.



    BEST MOMENTS

    “Repayment mortgages for your home, but buy to let homes: interest only mortgages!”

    “There will always be something stopping you getting ready…it’s about taking action, to take the steps”

    “Our job as property investors is to always focus on the opportunities that come out of other people’s problems”

    “Whether you’re a landlord or a tenant there’s people with integrity and there’s people without integrity”

    KEY TAKEAWAYS

    6 Biggest Property Failures-

    Investing Abroad- Don’t buy off-plan property. You are buying something that might go up, or down in value. You’re also purchasing something that might not even get built, there is no real guarantee, and whilst you are waiting for the build to be complete you are not making any money from the property. Purchase property in an area you are familiar with that can make you money instantly and whereby you are familiar with the tax and property laws.



    Doing All Your Own Refurbs- This takes up far too much time which can stop you from looking for more property investment deals. The standard of work was also not up to the standards of professional tradesmen, meaning a few years later the poor workmanship will have to be redone. Tying to do those refurbs yourself, will cost you more time and more money.



    Waiting Too Long Before Quitting Your Job- Just commit and get out, because quitting your job will allow you to focus more on property and your results will have scaled massively once leaving your job, allowing the freedom and mind space to really focus on scaling your property business.



    Waiting Too Long To Hire Staff- Where in your business can you add income? Where can you put money into your business? Things such as speaking to joint venture partners, people who want to invest money into your business, negotiating property purchases or contracts on rent to rents with homeowners, that is where your focus should be. Outsource all the other tasks to staff such as property management, speaking to the tenant, maintenance inspections, all of the tasks that are time-consuming but don’t generate income but rather take money from the business.



    Not Having A Clear System To Check Staff’s Work- Hiring any staff comes with an element of trust, and sometimes in fast-growing businesses you can end up leaving staff to get on with their job whilst your focus is on other things. This could potentially result in foul play from your staff as they feel like they are able to get away with things easier as they are not being monitored. Create a system whereby this is not possible. Check your properties out, check your own staff out and make sure that what’s being said is the reality.



    Not Hiring A Project Manager- A project manager will hire the entire refurb team to avoid any miscommunications between different tradespeople. If possible, make somebody you know or are familiar with and that you trust your project manager who can get the job delivered on time. Them being responsible for the project means that there's no way there can be any excuses or tension between the rest of the team.









    BEST MOMENTS

    “Mistakes are a part of life”



    “You only have to be right 51% of the time”



    “The richest people on this planet have made many mistakes”

S podcaster ,

Great knowledge

Great information on property investments. More to the point and relevant than other podcasts on this area that I have been listening to.

Keeps it simple and to the point.

Vinbad ,

Lost me when Nigel Farage was interviewed…

False advertising. No ‘Debate on property’ in the Farage episode. Property was mentioned for approx 30 seconds right at the end. Strange to mix politics into this format. Like others have mentioned, in the rest of the episodes you can pick out some small gems of info. But seemingly less and less.

Ahmad1471 ,

Sales pitch instead of content

Overall the podcast feels like a mind-over-matter-just-believe-in-yourself-you-can-do-it-we-can-show-you-how pitch rather than discussions on the workings of property market in the UK. There are sometimes crumbs of interesting info but always end up being bait to get you to sign up to something (e.g. “if you want to know more come to our event”) rather than a long-format discussion.

The arch of most episodes seems to be a story of rags-to-riches-any-one-can-do-it which feel disingenuous and more like an interview technique. Hope it’ll change and the discussions become more frank and grounded.
