Kirsty is a chartered surveyor by profession and has worked for blue chip companies for over 17 years including Boots and CBRE. Kirsty has a broad range of property and business experience having built and managed highly successful teams in property and retail, managing multi million commercial and residential property portfolios.
During this time Kirsty moved house 9 times relocating both for work and to fit personal circumstances, buying and refurbishing houses adding value but also renting for flexibility giving her great insight into the needs and wants of professional tenants.
In 2014 Kirsty took a career break, did some travelling and a lot of reading and educating including attending local property network meetings. She returned to work in a new role feeling inspired and ready for the next challenge determined to begin investing alongside her day job. Having achieved her professional goals however she realised that working for someone else exchanging the valuable commodity of her time for money was no longer what she wanted to do. In 2016 she has set up her own property consultancy and begun investing in a bid to create a secure financially free future and to help others; having a property portfolio can provide a passive income that allows you the freedom to do what you want, when you want, with whom you want and that is exactly what Kirsty aims to achieve.
When you meet Kirsty it soon becomes apparent that she is passionate about property, yes she wants to grow her own portfolio but her overriding passion is helping others; in her working life she built up a reputation for delivering high levels of service to both landlords and tenants as well as coaching and mentoring others to develop and achieve their goals. She has a vision to develop a HMO portfolio offering quality accommodation to professionals in Birmingham and Nottingham (her home town), along with sourcing commercial and residential property for others.
As part of this Kirsty is excited to bring the Progressive Property Network Event to Birmingham sharing knowledge and advice along with exploring innovative ways of investing in property at an informal, informative and sociable event.
Please join Kirsty wherever you are on your property journey, she is very much looking forward to meeting you.
