Who We Are
Your Partner in Property is owned and run by John Kerr, an ex CEO, Chartered Surveyor, and Property Mastermind Graduate who has been in the property business for over 40 years.
In 2008 John decided to leave his CEO job and successfully replace his corporate income with a salary from multiple cash flowing properties. Since then he has built a portfolio of single lets, holiday lets, local housing allowance (LHA) tenants, and houses of multiple occupation (HMOs). These days he is continuously using imaginative strategies to increase the income from his properties through serviced accommodation (SA). He was one of the first hosts to work with airbnb back in March 2012 and has hosted over 500 guests across the UK through that channel alone.
It hasn’t all been easy though, and John’s learned a lot from deals that haven’t gone so well. But these learning curves led him to realise his passion for mentoring and helping others in the serviced accommodation market.
John believes in integrity and honesty. The property business is a community and just as in many other areas, people do business with those that they know, like, and trust. He wants to help committed people with similar values, and build professional relationships that last.
What We Do
We are both a serviced accommodation provider, letting properties around the UK in lovely locations, and mentoring specialists to fellow landlords in the industry.
Homes and apartments
We have holiday rentals suitable for contractors, groups and families in clean, comfortable homes and apartments throughout Scotland and England which are available to book now.
Being a landlord can be a lonely business, so it’s important to be part of a positive and supportive environment. That’s why John hosts the M1 Property Investors group for property owners in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. He also hosts the Edinburgh branch of Simon Zutshi’s pin (Property Investment Network) meetings. Pin meetings take place all over the UK and are designed to help landlords, new and established, to learn from each other, add to their existing knowledge and skills, and save them time, money, and effort. Go to a meeting.
At Your Partner In Property we have a wealth of practical experience in property investing ready to share and to help you along your journey, whether you’re starting out or own a portfolio already. If you’re a landlord or property entrepreneur looking to make or increase your profits in the serviced accomodation market, you don’t have to struggle alone, and you don’t have to spend lots of money to learn how. Our focus is on high cash flowing property that replaces your job income, and with just a short chat we can help you boost your SA property income by a few hundred pounds a month.
