Loving the holistic inclusive approach.to Nicole`s business
The value of having a good team is often hard to measure in financial terms
Its just ...`People who do things properly` as she says .
Its that unseen silent day to day flow of positive energy between all involved on a project
All working quietly efficiently together towards their respective individual goals and also their joint goals
Nicole sums it up by saying she likes working with people who show ` eagerness`
Yes I agree. .Eagerness moves people smoothly from thousand pound projects through to million pound projects
Eagerness is good

Thanks for your comments Jonathan. They mean a lot coming from you. I've always admired you and the no BS approach you take to investing, mentoring and just getting on with it. Thank you.
What I love about property is there's not so much of an air of competition but an air of collaboration. I love that and have that view to everything we do.
And I'm very eager.

Do you think you will ever escape from the bitter barn DL
were you saying some thing to me If so Im not sure what your saying DL
Nicole is a developer doing buy to sell. She is therefore not affected by S24.
Why am I not surprised to here this
So she is a developer selling to Landlords and Investors
so this is not a Landlord scaling up its a builder
a very different game from the majority of Landlords on PT
Again a supplier to landlords saying every thing is fine when its not especially in London.
Hi DL,Nowhere does it say that Nicole is a landlord. She is a developer who JVs with other investors - not necessarily landlords - to create a high end product to sell to owner occupiers.I agree it is a very different game to the majority of PT landlords, but the theme of this month is inspiration, and what can be more inspiring than hearing from someone who is doing something related to property on a grander scale? I think Nicole is well aware of the market challenges in London, but I am sure she taken that into account when assessing the viability of her projects. I'm not here to defend Nicole, more to explain that PT wants to give a flavour of what you can do in property - whether you own a single property or are dealing in the millions.
You don't need to defender If she is doing well its good
We do need good news in our community at present there has been so little of late
But I do stand by my own thoughts that the supplier's of Landlords Services are upbeat and are saying all is well
But then you realise they cant say anything different
The truth is for coal face Landlords its a different feeling at present and I count myself in that group
its a challenging time for us all
Hey DL - I want to pull you up on your comment that I sell to landlords and investors - this isn't true. Of all the last 8 schemes I've sold they're ALL gone to owner occupiers. All of them. I'm not Galliard selling into the investor market. I'm selling to, often, first time buyers, who want a good quality property in an area like Hackney etc.
This will change a little as I scale up the size of property we do. For example we've just signed an agreement to forward sell a whole building. I believe this will be going to a large investor. But so far it's not been the case.
