Kevin McDonnell began investing in property in 2004, and initially made lots of mistakes that cost him a lot of money. After almost 10 years of juggling property with his full-time job he attended an MSOPI.
Over the next 5 years he went on to build a £5M+ property portfolio with a monthly positive cashflow of over £20k per month. He uses creative strategies such as Rent2Rent, Lease Options, Assisted Sales, Vendor Finance, JV Finance and Rent2Own.
Kevin has been investing in property since 1991 when he bought his first Buy-to-Let at the age of 20. After leaving the British Army in 2011 he had a portfolio of Buy-to-Let’s and HMO’s worth over a million pounds, and due to this income did not need to get a job and has gone on to build a portfolio worth in excess of 3 million pounds.
Kevin now specialises in Serviced Accommodation, and Rent-to-Rent Serviced Accommodation.
In 2014 David first joined us at Progressive Property, despite already having a property portfolio generating enough money to live a comfortable lifestyle.
However, David threw himself into the Property training we offer, got himself educated and along with his vast experience of being in property through numerous property cycles his property business has gone from strength to strength.
Now, David has over 25 years’ experience in property and his own portfolio of 26 units, with a rent roll in in excess of £10k per month.
He’s a partner in a Deal Sourcing and Packaging business in the North West of England and has sourced over 200 properties for investors since 2004.
Anne began investing in property in 2001. And to start with it was an enjoyable hobby that she had alongside her day job as a dentist. In 2014 she discovered Progressive Property and her whole world changed forever. She now owns over 60 properties with her husband Steve and a further 8 with her Joint Venture partners.
They're a mix of single lets and HMOs with a value of over £6 million. She is also investing in Commercial Conversion Projects and runs her own Lettings agency! Her last day as a dentist was 1st September 2015 and she now gets to spend her "work" time (because it really doesn’t feel like work) investing in property and training other people to become financially free through property.
Shaz is a chartered accountant, serial property investor for 17 years and director of a national-multi-award-winning accountancy practice - AA Accountants.
Currently, Shaz has helped clients secure over £150m in funding, added an additional £100m in profit to clients’ bank accounts and saved millions in additional tax (£1,937,367 tax saved for clients in 2018 alone).
Shaz knows what it’s like to be on the other side as a property investor. He is currently working on his developments at the moment (five x 2-bedroom new-build flats in Peterborough, 18-flats in Boston, 12-flats in Peterborough, Planning on 11.8 acres and planning on 12 acres).
Peter has been involved in property for 40 years, having graduated from the College of Estate Management, Reading University. He then qualified as an Associate member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in 1983, before being elected a Fellow in 1992.
Finding himself with no regular income, and with no savings, but with a wife and 3 young children to support, he borrowed some money from a relative and bought a house to refurbish and sell-on. That was the start of his own property business and, despite starting with none of his own money, he quickly assembled a multi-million pound property portfolio. He now owns multiple letting units, mainly single let buy to lets, and he specialises in investing in the North East of England.
He is about to embark on an exciting new venture in property career, having bought a piece of land and obtaining planning consent to build 3 houses. He’s seeing this as a ‘test’ to see if he likes it, his first dip into a new skill. This is just the start though, he hopes to develop many more affordable homes in the future.
If you think of a nickname for someone who is very successful in property, it wouldn’t be Rebecca's title: The laziest person in property!
She has devised the ultimate, highly profitable, leveraged strategy which focuses solely on raising finance and working with investors, which means she doesn’t have to use any of her own property.
She now runs what she calls an Investor Bank strategy which places investor funds into medium to large scale developers’ projects to give investors a low-risk high return on their funds over a fixed timescale. She currently has 17 projects progressing with a projected personal profit in excess of £300k at the same time as giving her investors an impressive 12-15% annualised return. The true definition of Win-Win!
A former Royal Navy communicator, Dan has worked hard to build a hugely successful Serviced Accommodation business, operating through Greater London, The Cotswolds and South Wales. After beginning a family, Dan decided to leave the Royal Navy, as it was taking him away from home too often.
After working in the corporate world, Dan discovered that his family time was still too limited. Progressive Property’s masterclass event opened up a whole new realm of income possibilities to Dan, who decided upon the Serviced Accommodation strategy because of the areas in which he wished to operate. Dan needed a "high cashflow in” strategy that worked in his local area, and Serviced Accommodation fit the bill perfectly.
Dan used his rent-to-SA business in order to slowly leverage his way to developing and evolving his business to include many different remits. He won Progressive VIP of the Year award back in 2018 and now owns successful businesses Pivotal Point Properties & Cheltenham Serviced Apartments which have allowed him to become financially free and have more time to spend with his family.
