135: Martin Rapley has unmatched experience when it comes to running successful property development projects

The Inside Property Investing Podcast | Interviewing Inspiring & Successful Property and Real Estate Investors

Martin has over 30 years of experience as a manager in the construction industry, and has been investing in his own buy to let portfolio for the last 10 years. His experience extends to working on projects in the V&A Museum, the British Museum, the Bank of England, and the Stock exchange. At first, he enjoyed the profits from his own portfolio rather than reinvesting them, but recently has realised the power of compounding his assets and is now focussing on growing his property business both for long term gains and short term cash flow. In addition, for the past 3 years he has been using his extensive construction expertise to help other investors with their refurbishment and development projects, often only being called in for assistance once something has gone wrong. He's trying to change this by getting involved earlier in projects either as a consultant or a full service project manager, breaking down the barriers between contractors and his clients.
