Property Hub has helped me gain clarity on what my goals are and how to achieve them
Claudine O’Leary explains how investing through Property Hub Invest has been a confidence boost and freed up more of her time to spend with her young family.
How did you hear about Property Hub?
I was listening to another podcast whilst walking my dogs and Property Hub was mentioned so I made a note and subscribed and immediately enjoyed and found value in it.
How has Property Hub helped you get closer to your investment goals?
It’s helped me get more clarity on what my goals are and how to reach them. I’m working against a plan which I didn’t have before and that’s comforting. Property Hub Invest has been fantastic for me as it’s helped build my confidence as I get back into the game. It’s helped expand my network and also made investing in quality properties super easy and with minimal risk.

What has this meant for you personally?
It’s been great fun progressing with property and diversifying with my financial assets into buy-to-lets (BTLs). I can do my day work and carry on with my life whilst building up this passive income stream on the side. Knowing that I have physical assets is important to me as my life and work seem so digitally focussed. The BTLs provide a grounded component for me which feels especially important at the moment with Covid and the ramifications of that.
What have you learnt that you didn’t know before?
So much, where to start? The different investment strategies available and when they are most useful, the process of identifying areas and properties for potential investment, the various funding mechanisms, how to be a great landlady, I could go on…
What’s your favourite thing about Property Hub?
I love the tone, branding, service, content, value, consistency, and ethos of Property Hub. I listen to every podcast, read every page of the magazine and take full advantage of any suitable investment opportunities.
What’s the next step in your story?
Buying (and possibly building) our new family home for our expanding family whilst continuing to build up our existing BTL and short-term let property portfolio.
What would you say to someone just starting out in property?
Make sure you do your numbers properly. Keep track of all expenses. Start out conservatively. Sleep on it before making big decisions. Trust your instincts and sign up to Property Hub for the community forum and valuable free resources and have fun.
