Darren and Bill (brothers) have been investing in property since 2007 and full time since 2011, James has been investing in property since 1991 and full time since 2010.
Bill’s background started as an electrician at 16 and opened his first company (Landworth Electrics) in 2007 and built the business from scratch to a £1.2M turnover in 4 years before selling out to his business partner in 2011 and jumping feet first into full time property investing.
Darren’s background started in the Royal Air Force at 16 and after 7 years of loyal service to his country he decided to make the jump feet first into property investing in 2011.
James’s background is he spent 15 years as a professional musician travelling the world, started re-investing in single lets in 2006 and quickly found that that wasn’t juicy enough and bought a block of 12 flats in 2007, James developed a scheme for mental health/ supported living within the 12 flats. He then went on to develop and project manage a 4 bed semi into 7x 1bedroom flats and implemented another scheme for learning disabilities/ supported living.
Darren and Bill met James in May 2011 at Varnish’s Property Angel Networking event, found common ground in their investment area Luton and instantly realised the synergy between personalities was a powerful combination.
The boys bought their first property together as a JV in November 2009, second in January 2012 and the rest is history. Their first deal was bought for 235k and spent £200k (almost 50% of the purchase price) developing the property, the deal is “no money left in” with a £2,000 PCM net profit whilst paying down the debt. The boys also ventured into the world of commercial finance which they say has been an eye opening experience.
In keeping with our passion at the Bucks Property Meet of securing first class speakers we have again secured another very active property person who is willing to share his knowledge with the Bucks community.
Property networking is all about making new contacts, sharing new ideas, learning, being motivated to take action and being able to spend time with others who share a common passion.
