Property is not the preserve of the rich and well-connected, or at least it shouldn’t be. I am on a mission to get people into homes that wouldn’t normally be within their reach. Call me crazy, but I believe that everyone, whatever their income, deserves a decent roof over their head. Here’s what I do:
I have learnt, the hard way, how to be a success in the property world, so join one of my mentoring programmes to benefit from all that hard-earned wisdom. I save you time and money and give you the confidence to make the right decisions, accelerating your progress.
Developing homes for first-time buyers
I’m proud to be making new, affordable homes accessible to first-time buyers. My latest development, Fountain Gates in Croydon was built on reclaimed land and provides homes with Help to Buy.
Housing disadvantaged young adults
Buying and renovating houses, along with my business partner and Step Ahead services, I provide decent and stable homes for disadvantaged young adults often in the care system, helping them find their feet.
I also offer project management and coaching for your short-term property projects, as well as helping match partners for joint venture partnering.
I’m a big believer in doing what I can to help lift others. On a mission to be a positive role model for young people, I’m showing them what can be achieved if you are determined. Starting out I had zero property experience, didn’t come from a wealthy background, or have connections. Yet now I’m an award-winning property entrepreneur with a portfolio of properties and an ambitious development just round the corner from my old school in Croydon – and I couldn’t be prouder.

There is nothing like an auction win completing. Our deal did on Monday. A six week race to the finish line with all guns blazing but we got there. This purchase is particularly sweet because it’s in my home town and is my local post office with two residential units above it. Who knew that […]
AUCTION DAY TODAY! No matter how experienced you are the run up to Auction is scarey and I guess exciting at the same time. Why the stress – because it is SO unpredictable. Fact! I do practise what I preach – prepare, prepare, prepare and do all of these things as a basic measure: 🏡 […]

The planning system is broken Croydon is our patch. We build, renovate, refurbish homes in and around the area so believe we know it well; serve and support it well too. Croydon (like many Boroughs) needs decent affordable housing so when you are hit with a refusal to ‘improve’ an existing space you might not […]
Sustainability has become the focus of some developers throughout the past years, with many projects being proposed and some even being actually built. However, are people practically ready for the change? Building sustainable homes isn’t as easy and quick as building homes with concrete and other harmful materials. Different techniques are needed in order to build […]

With all the events going on this Christmas. This takes the Crown 👑 Honoured to attend a banquet in honour of the Rt Hon The Lord Mayor of the City of London. Mansion House is breathtaking. Fabulous evening full of honour, recognition, livery, Royal toasting and much more.
To be frank, today’s present property landscape is a steeper climb for the first-time buyer. Add to that, being 21-28 and disadvantaged. “Since 1997, property prices have increased by over 173% in England, whereas real incomes for 25-35 year old’s have increased by just 19%.” -Apr 2021 And as of 2007, the age of the […]
