I’m Rob. I’m a 35-year-old guy from Chester, England, who makes a living by investing in property. I consider myself one of the luckiest people on Earth.
I didn’t win the lottery, I don’t live a flashy lifestyle (I don’t always wear a tux honest!) and I’m certainly not a self-proclaimed property ‘guru’.
What I do have is a beautiful wife, an amazing daughter & son, a crazy dog, a loving family and great friends, and a work-life balance that allows me to spend most of my time with them.
Like most people and maybe like you, I’ve done my fair share of 9 to 5 job’s in my time, which I hated (ok…hate’s a strong work…let’s say disliked, a lot).
I used to dread Sunday evenings knowing what awaited me was 5 days straight of groundhog day. It wasn’t fun and it certainly wasn’t the future I had envisaged.
The Pay was terrible and there were never any real prospects. Working hard to fill someone’s else’s pockets, to eventually hit a 70+ hour week, grey hair by my 30’s and a 40% tax bracket if I’m lucky, not really the targets we set ourselves starting out, and certainly not a solid pension plan.
But even then, for me (and this may sound strange) it has never been about the money. I had simply wanted to do my own thing. Be my own boss and it was about choice, lifestyle, and flexibility. Money was simply the way to give me that flexibility.
I knew something had to change...
That’s when I happened upon property in 2005. After two failed business at the age of 23 and a load of debt, a couple of events in my life opened the doors to property.
My old manager had just quit her job to work at an estate agency and was loving it… At the same time, I knew a couple of people who had small buy to let portfolio’s and were earning very good money (and working very little!).
Perfect… This was the opportunity I was looking for. It would be hard work initially, I’d have to learn from the ground up, but done right I could start making the passive income I had wanted which in the end would allow me to have the flexibility and the lifestyle design that I had been aiming for.
It was a massive learning curve, that started with a year working on the ground in an estate agency. First as a junior negotiator (minimum wage… but it was worth it) and then working my way up, till I decided to take the plunge and went self-employed in 2007 to start my property sourcing business. I’ve never looked back.
So Why Property Investments UK?
When I started out, I read tonnes of books, drank lots of coffee and went to networking meeting after networking meeting and seminar after seminar up and down the country.
I even paid thousands for various training courses and seemed to just be chasing the next shiny property strategy but not actually getting any decent information or advice.
Now after spending 13+ years investing in property, I have seen many self-proclaimed gurus and property millionaires come and go.
There’re a couple of genuine people that I would happily recommend, but many others are simply… just good salesmen. Nothing more. They rarely have any ‘real’ property experience. Some even teach borderline illegal strategies or at best questionable techniques with immoral standards.
I wanted to be different...
You shouldn’t have to pay £10,000+ for a property course to then just be up-sold on to something more to give you that magic bullet. Talk about Dick Turpin!
Actionable, useful (and profitable) information shouldn’t be hard to find and it certainly shouldn’t cost the earth.
To do this I sat down and planned out the service, care, and attention I would want my family and friends to get if they were just starting out and looking for training or a property investment consultant to help them get started.
Out of this Property Investments UK was created to help investors like my family & friends and for investors just like you, make money and save time when investing in property.
