Ranjan Bhattacharya is a seasoned property investor and developer who over the last 25 years has built an extensive portfolio of residential and commercial property in London. He is a former management consultant with Accenture and has an MBA from the Cranfield School of Management.
He is the author of the best-selling ‘Build Your Property Empire – Home Study Course’. Ranjan is also an advisor to Channel 4’s Property Ladder and has been a regular speaker at the Property Investor Show since 2004.
Ranjan bought his first investment property in 1990 having just graduated from University. With no cash of his own, he had no choice but to structure the deal to be no money down purchase. Ever since buying income generating property with little money down, has been the ‘corner-stone’ of his investment strategy.
Neil bought his first property at the age of 25, a 2 bed ex council flat. Immediately re- mortgaging he then went onto purchase a 2 bed house for £70k, selling that within 3 months for £125k. Within the next 3 years he continued to flip properties whilst travelling around Asia/Europe (having a great time in the process). With the easily availability of credit in the UK at the time Neil felt property prices soon became overheated in his native city of Coventry and stopped purchasing.
In 2008 he set up a company to secure repossessed properties throughout the UK (doing 15 a day) with some well known Asset Management companies. This enabled him to purchase more properties (HMO's) within the catchment area of the Unversity of Warwick and began letting to postgraduate students.
To date he has 4 HMO's and 2 Multi's lets and is keen on purchasing more. However is main focus is learning about Developments, crowdfunding, and promoting his new sales and letting business Homexperts Kensington & Chelsea.

“ 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! ”
