Through her business (www.landmarkprojectslondon.com) Anna and her business partner have purchased over £6m of property across more than 30 deals, working with private investors who like the idea of investing, but lack the time, knowledge or inclination to do so alone.
The focus is on strategically-driven portfolio building and development deals, backed by strong analytical skills and a professional, honest, dynamic approach.
Prior to Landmark, Anna studied Land Economy at the University of Cambridge (2008-11) then started her career in Strategy Consulting at Deloitte, whilst building up her own property portfolio.

“ 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! ”
