Dan and Jamie are committed to their 70/20/10 strategy split which is split between 70% of their time on sourcing and selling BMV deals, 20% of their time on development deals, and finally 10% on simple flips.
Their ‘We Sell BMV’ brand is a market leader in the UK, sending out between 3 and 10 different deals every single week. As well as pure below market value deals, they’re branching out to offer properties suitable for a variety of different strategies, and Dan mentioned one particular deal in the interview which he’d sold the morning of the interview, which was a serviced accommodation deal making them £4,000.
On the development side of the business these are typically much larger deals where Dan and Jamie work with other investors/developers.
They currently have one in Isleworth and another in Surrey, one of which is a development of new houses and the other is a commercial conversion.
Their final 10% spent doing flips is working with someone else who manages the work on deals that Dan & Jamie have sourced and funded. This is a relatively new strategy for them, but already they’re scaling it up and are confident of hitting their targets of completing one flip every month.

How a Chippy and a Lighting Salesman went from £0 to £255m GDV pipeline in 3 years – with none of their own money
Lloyd Girardi and his business partner started White Box Property in 2014 with nothing in the pipeline and limited property investing experience. In the past 3 years they have achieved phenomenal amounts and have been featured in numerous magazine articles, podcasts and interviews as their innovative property investing model sets them apart from others.
From the start they have used a Build-To-Rent strategy to their advantage and also utilised crowd funding very early on to start accomplishing their dreams. In 2014, after their first year in Property they won the ‘Deal of The Year’ award for their very first development. Sheer determination, dedication and a vision has set them up for the future with a staggering pipeline that has a GDV of £255m and continues to grow.
Property development can be for anyone but not everyone realises their own potential. Lloyd’s ambition and passion to give back is remarkable so don’t miss this event as Lloyd will share with you the secrets of how you can emulate his success.

I left school to join the military …… that career was left behind after a number of years, having achieved the rank of Captain in the infantry.
I moved to London and left after six years with the title Doctor. Within a few years, I became a consultant and practiced for a number of years in various Southern African countries. Most prestigious location being Groote Schuur (teaching) Hospital, famous for being the hospital where Christiaan Barnard carried out the first heart transplant.
During this time, my wife and I built a sailing catamaran, launched it and sailed off on a round the world trip. We did not make it! Whilst sailing I undertook some distant learning and gained a couple of degree’s in construction.
As a result, by a strange quirk of fate, I was offered employment ashore and ended up in the Middle East managing a prestigious development, which led to even more iconic projects (see below).
Eventually, I was head hunted to work for another major company in West Africa and after that we relocated to UK in 2015 and discovered property conversions. As a result, I am now developing property within England and also I am mentoring a group of people, specialising in converting commercial property to residential. My quest for learning also continues as I am also studying for another couple of degree’s related to property.

Kendall Bailey was founded by Katrina Jones, an award winning property investor and mentor from London. When she moved to York a few years ago, she found it hard to find somewhere perfect to live. “I couldn’t yet afford to buy my own property, and all I could find in the way of shared homes were student houses. I really wanted to live somewhere with likeminded, clean and friendly working professionals,” she says.
Not having found somewhere ideal to live, and moving from hostels to student houses, Katrina decided to set up a company that provided house shares for working professionals, and an incredible guaranteed rental and management service for Landlords. This has created an experience unlike anything else that exists in York today for both Tenants and Landlords.
Since the age of 19, Katrina has had a passion for business, working as a sales and marketing manager in Australia for 5 years before returning to the UK. Becoming highly respected in both the sales industry in Australia and property in the UK, she is now regularly interviewed and profiled in magazines, books, webinars and blogs for her incredible success and fast-growing business.
The experienced Kendall Bailey team are 100% dedicated and committed to providing an exceptional service to their tenants and landlords, and have a huge passion for what they do.
