What We Do

Simply, we buy properties below market value, renovate them, add value and then sell them for profit.

Over the years we’ve completed numerous projects around Edinburgh. All projects have varied in scale and complexity, and each project has taught us valuable lessons to take with us to the next project. We focus on renovating older properties with period features, and we love bringing them back to life.

While we love renovating properties both to sell or to keep as buy-to-lets, money is made when you buy. Therefore we invest a lot of time in finding suitable projects and negotiating to achieve a price that works financially for our business.

Why Work With Us?

Repeatable Success

We’ve completed many projects during our careers as property developers, and every project we’ve worked on has been a great success. Of course, hiccups occur along the way, but with the experience we’ve gained over the years we’ve accrued a wealth of knowledge to overcome many challenges.

Systems & Processes

Over the years we’ve built robust systems to support our projects from start to finish. We use technology and software to ensure our processes allow projects to run as seamlessly as possible. From finance and budget trackers to schedules of work and project sourcing system, we have everything covered in-house. 


We strongly believe in securing our investor’s money legally. Our top priority is providing excellent and guaranteed returns to our investors, and therefore we’re happy to offer different levels of security for our clients’ investments. We started our property development business with our own capital, and we’ve scaled our business year on year. Our ethos is to grow our business with low risk or without over-leveraging, and we believe this separates us from the rest.

How We Can Work Together

We renovate properties using our own and our investor’s money, and therefore we can offer great rates of return to our investors due to the profitability of our projects. Depending on your needs, we can offer returns over 1, 2 or 3 years.
