About this Episode

The first part of Stuart and Simon's property back-story, starting with "Why?".


Why was property the business that they each chose? Simon and Stuart have very different answers!

Stuart gets in a mention that some of his story is also available on Executive Juice - another excellent business podcast!


Simon discusses the difference between being "just" a landlord and being a deliberate property investor. Simon's property journey began in 2002.

Stuart's property journey began in 2007. Both of them stepped up to being an investor a few years later.


For Stuart he started with a studio flat before officially starting investment with a 1-bed flat. He then switched strategy and continued with a 5-bed HMO (and then some more).

Simon's route started with lodgers in his own house, expanding to an initial single-let a couple of years later.
