Nicole Bremner- Founder of East Eight:

We are a property development and investment company with an uncompromising focus: creating extraordinary living spaces. With each of our developments offering award-winning design and high-end finish, the result is beautiful, stand-out living spaces. East Eight has a proven track record of renovating million pound properties in Central and East London. Our latest scheme is the construction of luxury penthouses on a roof space on City Road, London EC1. Other projects include multi million pound developments in the London Fields and Islington areas.

What sets us apart is our ability to maximise the potential of a property, often re-submitting planning to extract the most value from each site. Through our partnerships with award-winning architects, planning consultants and our own in-house construction team, we have streamlined this process, from negotiation and purchase, to planning and development, through to sales and lettings.

We maximise the potential of every property with detailed planning and meticulous craftmanship. Our experienced architects, planning consultants and in-house construction team ensure a smooth journey from negotiation to purchase, planning to development, sales to lettings – resulting in significant business growth year on year.

“ Fantastic. I always walk away with renewed vigour and solutions to property problems that I had not considered myself. What the regular attendees don't know about property at this event probably ain't worth knowing! ” James Gallagher

“ 5 Star! Anyone interested in property investing especially in the residential market - this must be the best Network Event they could possibly attend. The quality and expertise remains exceptionally high, Brendan runs a small but perfectly formed event. If you're interested in property - DON'T MISS IT!!!!! ”

Alex McKellar

“ This is where the experts meet the experts! Anybody who is looking for a wealth of information will be surrounded by a wealth of knowledgeable and very helpful people. Everybody likes to be in a position to do business. However this is one of the least "pitchy" groups. More help less people trying to flog you snake oil. I like it! ”
