“It was love at first post with Rob Moore, I admired him for actually posting on Facebook and building a personal rapport. I’ve attended MSOPI, JV, HMO, 12 month VIP Mentorship Kryptonite and Elite Speaking Revolution.
In the 5 years since attending MSOPI I have met some amazing people, avoided a number of mistakes, gained a respectable reputation in the industry, had dinner with Rob Moore and finally given up employment to go self-employed. Progressive Property gave me the knowledge and network to make some bold personal and business decisions.
Before attending the courses I had a near death experience in 2014 with Sepsis. I stared the devil in the face and won! This was the wake up call I needed to do something to create a different income stream.
I had a regular 9-5 job, but felt stuck in a career that had lost its appeal and had very little time to do my charity work. I also care for my 2 children with a very rare health condition. There are only 200 children/people in the UK with this condition – cystinosis.
After the courses I felt nervous and unsure about meeting new people, had anxiety when speaking in public and lacked the confidence in believing in myself. I wobbled a lot in my mindset and doubted my investment in training, but Progressive helped me overcome all of this.
Now, I’m at the stage where I can balance my time between family, property, architectural design and charity work. And, I was awarded the Queens Award for Voluntary Services in 2019.
The course gave me massive confidence to go and get my 1st R2SA plus the background knowledge to take on managed properties.
Before attending Progressive’s courses, our delegate Cara Shardlow was at an all time low. Now her confidence has grown, she believes in herself again and look at these amazing results to prove it:
> Own 4 R2SA units
> Profit of £56K
> Turning over just short of £20K per month
> More money than she has earned in 25 years!
> Got first R2SA unit within only 4 weeks of doing the intensive SA course
> Managing 12 other properties
> About to take on first VA
> Looking at doing JV with apart-hotels with 2 people
> Quickly grown her holiday letting business in just 1 year
“I came to the MSOPI event and knew I wanted to be the best in SA so had to sign up. When I signed up for the course I was in a total panic and had no idea how I would pay for it!
I loved the positive energy and great advice given by so many knowledgeable people already doing SA and that had come from hard backgrounds. The course gave me massive confidence to go and get my 1st R2SA plus the background knowledge to take on managed properties.
Because I got myself even more into debt when signing up, this was a massive incentive to go full on into getting more properties and build my income. The knowledge, support and guidance from the trainers has definitely helped my mindset to push ahead even when it got really hard.
Before attending the course I was at an all time low. Recently divorced, with my equestrian business of nearly 20 years failing, I was in a lot of debt and felt completely lost. I was working 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, with little money, I had to borrow money from family and credit cards to keep afloat and was struggling. I needed more income, something that would give me money for my future, stability and pension as well as more free time.
Channel managers were one of the biggest challenges for me. I went through 4 to get to the one I now have and remember being sat on the floor crying many times trying to get them to work! COVID also hit just 4 months after I had started my business and I honestly thought I would be bankrupt at the end of April 2020.
I’ve survived near bankruptcy, divorce and COVID to be earning more than I ever have in my life, and all in less than 18 months. I’m now at a completely different place. I have never earned so much money in my life, don’t get me wrong this has not been an easy journey but you just have to keep going no matter how hard, and it does work!!”

Bloody hell! Where do I begin!? Just got home from MSOPI. Another amazing 3 days. Met so many amazing people, including the legendary trainers!
Got the privilege of sitting directly in front of Rob Moore whilst he answered questions.
A week after doing No money down. I went straight to a portfolio landlord who offered me 28 properties to lease and received some great advice on the deal from Kevin J McDonnell
So on the way home I rang the investor and sorted out the next steps and business plan
What a busy 12 days! Ps love the stripes
I have now secured my first property - an EDC in east London! Thanks to Kevin McDonnell’s personal guidance
1 week after the combined R2R and NMD course, and with me immediately signing up for the NMD mastermind, I have now secured my first property - an EDC in east London! Thanks to Kevin McDonnell’s personal guidance I have managed to secure the property at an extremely good price given the area, and really helped out the vendor in the process. Negotiated on Friday over the phone followed by an email summarising the offer (making sure to package the ‘pain with the pleasure’ as Kevin says, and breaking down all the figures plainly for the vendor) - by Sunday at midnight she emailed to say she was all in.
Looking forward to securing many more in east London in the near future. What I have learned and continue to learn is priceless.

They really do everything they can to support you
Have attended a few training days at Progressive and have come away each time buzzing. The team are amazing and extremely helpful. No question is a bad question and they really do everything they can to support you. Can't wait to get back down.
Thank you to Rebecca Smith David Siegler and Rob Moore for inspiring me from the beginning
What a massive difference property has made to my life. Not only am I in love with what I do and making good money but the biggest thing for me is the network which I like to call my property family.
I've just spent two days in London and travelled down on my own knowing I have so many wonderful friends and contacts where ever I go that means I will not be alone. In fact it's been crazy I haven't even had chance to catch up with everyone I intended to so apologies
I've had great times with my friends and also met new investors and have some very exciting opportunities in the pipeline.
Wow what a time I've had. Thank you to Rebecca Smith David Siegler and Rob Moore for inspiring me from the beginning

"My own mindset & buying a 35,000ft2 building in 6 weeks with private money was a challenge, but I did it. Thank you!"

6 FIGURES of Income (From a Podcast)! And a 7 FIGURE commercial rental income. Wow!
6 FIGURES of Income (From a Podcast)! And a 7 FUGURE commercial rental income. Wow!
My awesome client Jerry Alexander has gained some HUGE results, despite some BIG challenges. Please give him a shout out for succeeding through the lockdown:
• Increased commercial portfolio by 45,000ft2 of office and workspace units acquired a small container storage business.
• Increased turnover to 7 figure commercial rental income.
• Started Commercial Property podcast and have generated a 6 figure income off the back of it.
"Rob, I currently have 3 different six figure businesses as well as the 7 figure commercial rental business. So spinning plates can be difficult particularly during the last 12 months of COVID which has had a big impact on our restaurant business and rental business.
Diversifying into the podcast and consultancy business has helped on a number of levels. Without the support and accountability of yourself and the Podcast Mastermind I would still be talking about doing it. My own mindset & buying a 35,000ft2 building in 6 weeks with private money was a challenge, but I did it. Thank you!"

70 Deals in 12 Months & 6 Figures in Income & JV Finance!
Wow check this out from VIP member & amazing client/community members Dan Newcastle & Jez Moses. Let’s celebrate him in the comments too…
• Sold over 70 deals in 12 months
• Six figure revenue streams from sourcing and project management
• In-house letting agency with 10 full time staff
• Raised six figures of investor finance in 12 months (loan and learn)
• Purchased 5 properties (2k net) in 12 months
"How we achieved these with Rob & Progressive’s help:
We’re currently on the progressive VIP and marketing mastermind. We have learnt about how to leverage, and run a systemised business. Rob has helped us level up our marketing which has enabled us to achieve 700 investors for our property sourcing company. Specifically, Rob has helped me focus on my target market. We now spend time on things that bring in income, which is allowing us to scale.
But it hasn’t come without it’s challenges:
Cashflow has been a difficult hurdle to overcome. We didn’t start with a large pot of capital (only 10k), so to get where we are in one year has been super challenging. The second is mindset. We lacked the mindset to scale at the beginning because we didn’t test and implement the right strategies. Robs training has allowed us to focus and therefore spend time on what truly matters in our business.
And on our ever first project we hired a builder who was a ‘friend of a friend’ who did our first ever refurb. He did a runner and cost us 12k overall in damages. Falsified damp work, and took his second instalment and left us high and dry. We didn’t vet him properly, and we didn’t have the systems and processes in place to avoid such a risk for our business. We learnt this the hard way”.
A true Progressive success story. Dealing with challenges and getting results.

Created an investment portfolio worth £1.1 MILLION!
Check out these life changing results from our amazing delegate and community member Rick Cusimano.
• Created an investment portfolio worth £1.1M
• Bought and sold over 40 properties/sites
• Setup a letting agency managing 60 units and growing
• Employed 3 members of staff
• Projects in planning/development with GDV of £3.3 million
• Much more time at home with the kids!
How he’s achieved these results with Progressive’s help:
“I’ve attended the Masterclass foundation course, No Money Down and Deal Packaging (this is the route we decided to take). The content was great, I got to engage with others, make friendships and the courses gave me the confidence to go out and take action. I trusted Progressive because of the expert knowledge of the speakers and community spirit. Progressive gave me the knowledge to go out and look for deals, after attending the course my wife and I quit our jobs and got started! Our lives are now HUGELY different: we spend lots of time at home, it’s a joy to go to work and we now have the option to retire 20+ years earlier than we would have before getting into property. We couldn’t have done it without Progressive.”
Before attending Progressive’s courses, what was life like for Rick?:
“I worked long hours in a high stress corporate job. Used to leave the house at 7am with a long commute and was often out of the house for 12+ hours per day meaning I got to spend little time with my daughter. I had little savings and high consumer debt with no prospect of retiring before 65. My work and lifestyle was unfulfilling and stressful.”
The challenges and successes Rick faced along the way:
“Initially progress was slow, a lot of things went wrong and we had a lot of false starts which cost time and money. Then we got our first big win which was a flip we did with family which sold for a £30K profit. We shared our details about that on social media and were approached by an investor looking for similar deals. That was a pivotal time for us because it gave us a clear direction to move in.”
This is the kind of success story we love to hear at Progressive! Full of real life results, overcoming obstacles and achieving goals. Please show your appreciation for @RickCusimano’s hard work in the comments below and ask him any questions you might have.

£90k per month revenue in less than 2 years IN COVID!
My great client & community member John Paul Reilly has just sent me his results (& challenges) on WhatsApp. Check this out & please congratulate him in the comments…
"Since following you and being part of your community I have gone from no work life balance running one company doing 50k per month, to it doing over 90k per month on average, all through Covid.
I’ve started a podcast that is now being monetised.
After not doing anything in property for 8 years, I'm due to get the keys on a buy to let this month that should cash flow £300 per month.
I’ve started a coaching business that actually has clients, but more than this I have the work life balance that was missing in my life.
My confidence has grown 10 fold and for the first time In a long time I am no longer having dark thoughts and I’m the happiest I've been In a long time.
It sounds dramatic but being part of your community, buying your books, following you on social media and having one 2 one calls (7 I think in total) with you has saved me. Thank you Rob".

Progressive and the co-founders have 1,000s of positive reviews (and a few critical ones!) going back to 2007. You can read or review Progressive on the following trust sites, Click on the logos to read the reviews:
Progressive, and co-founders Rob Moore and Mark Homer care and want to help you start and scale your property empire
They don’t claim to be perfect, but are personal and accessible. In the rare instances that there is a bad review or issue, they will endeavour to help the reviewer to a good outcome.
Progressive do not delete bad reviews in their community, instead look to solve the issue. Whilst the average rating is very high, their reviews also have some critics, which is understandable for a company going since 2007 & being the UK's largest yet most personal property training company. You will find some of the reviews are from trolls, and Progressive accept this as part of the cost of doing what they do.
Progressive have also trained many of the competitors in the property market, many being Progressive students in the beginning, and have inspired and taught many people in setting up their own property training business.
Here is just a small selection of the feedback (1000’s emails, calls, letters & videos) we’ve received from our Handsfree Investors, Mastermind, Masterclass & MSOPI events Attendees, Mentorship attendees, Book Buyers & Facebook community.

“Progressive have been absolutely integral in my progress so far, they piqued that initial interest with their fantastic books about property investment. They then focussed me on a strategy, taught me how to implement that strategy in detail with the No Money Down training and now provide continued support through the Mastermind programme.”

You might have seen some posts from the amazing people we have trained, but we’d love for you to get to know what they were like before they achieved this amazing success?
Anne was a hobby property investor for 13 years before attending Progressive Property’s MSOPI event in 2014, where her life changed and she quickly realised her property hobby could become a proper property business. She now owns 84 properties with a monthly cashflow of £25,400 per month!
What made you interested in property investment and starting a property portfolio?
My friends bought an investment property in 2001 and told me that the rent would be more than the mortgage payment. This seemed a great idea to me and was the only “education” I had when starting in property.
How did you take that next step?
I refinanced our home and used that as the seed capital for our property business.
What were you doing before you got into property?
I was a dentist for 30 years before attending the MSOPI even in January 2014.
What was your work situation and lifestyle like?
I was working in a very stressful job. Comfortably off, but little time to spend doing the things I love in life. Wanted more time and freedom.
What were the struggles/challenges you faced during your property journey?
Had to replace both my husband and I’s six figure incomes from my job as a dentist and his as a GP with income from property. We were able to do this 16 months after attending the MSOPI event.
How did you get involved with Progressive Property and Rob Moore?
I attended MSOPI in January 2014, then in July 2015 I became a trainer with Progressive for the Property Investor’s Masterclass - the UK’s leading property training course that teaches you everything you need to become a full or part-time property investor.
Why do you like working with Progressive Property?
Progressive have a simple system for everything. I also love being part of Masterclass and seeing the difference it has made to so many people's lives who are now financially free through property investing.
How has your life changed?
I have gone on to set up a Lettings Agency that manages my own properties for an additional income stream. My property businesses take up less than 5 hours a week of my time by outsourcing most of the work and I get to share my property knowledge with others at Progressive’s Masterclass.
Before the pandemic, my husband and I got to travel one month in three, and were discovering new countries and new cultures in a way we could never have dreamed of just a few years ago. We can’t wait to get back to it!
What do you love about property investing?
My first love is Single Lets and I want to teach people about how to get into them because the income is the most passive of any property strategy with long-term tenants and high demand. They are a low-risk, low time-intensive, Set and Forget strategy. Perfect for any investor! With Single Let's it really is possible to do one-tenth of the work you are currently doing in your career and make ten times the money, you just need to be shown how!
What would you say to someone who was in your past situation?
Everybody needs to build a property portfolio to secure their own future and build a legacy for generations to come.
What motivates you every day?
To live life to the fullest!
