"Good things come to those who meet for coffee...
My own personal circumstances are such that I have a very busy full-time job, based in Doncaster, and am therefore very time-poor. This leaves me with a lack of resources to search for genuinely good property deals and project manage any bigger projects beyond simple single let renovations. This, for me, is where working with Saif and Kas has been a dream.
As well as taking the lead with our most recent HMO project, Saif and Kas have been teaching me so much about the whole process of converting a small residential property into a high cash-flowing 5 Bed all-ensuite HMO. We bought the property at auction (one that I wouldn’t otherwise have been able to attend) for a great price, and I was so fortunate to be able to utilize all the contacts that Saif and Kas knew and could vouch for, from bridging loan lenders to builders/tradesman and managing agents.
As we all know, building relationships and establishing a power team is so important, and to be able to leverage a team of this kind of quality didn’t happen overnight for them, but it DID for me, which was amazing in its’ self. Of course, like any deal, we had our setbacks. But with the wise guidance from the Derzi brothers, it was never not going to work as a project. 5 Months later and I'm in the process of re-mortgaging (using Saifs recommended mortgage broker) and the property is fully tenanted with 5 nice tenants, and is fully managed so that I don’t have to stress about the nitty-gritty stuff that I really don’t have time for.
I can't wait for our next venture and I am more eager than ever to learn from my so highly valued partners. Thanks so so so much to Saif and Kas Derzi."
