John Woolley
Head of Property Acquisitions

Finding investment property is what John loves!

John started working at 17, after a year at college, with Rolls Royce, repairing aeroplane engines. He quickly realised that the corporate lifestyle was not for him.

Having owned and managed a variety of businesses through the years, property has always been his love.

He amassed a large property portfolio throughout the North East of England, from apartments on the Quayside in Newcastle and Sunderland to HMO’s(Houses of Multiple Occupation) in Durham and single lets throughout. Having had this varied portfolio, John is perfectly placed to offer advice and support on a varied range of investment strategies.  

As well as finding investors their required property, John runs one of the largest networking events in the North East. The Property Investors Network(PIN) is a monthly meeting for property investors of all abilities to meet up and chat about property. John has hosted this event for the last 3 years with great success.

In his spare time Johns interests are his family, fly fishing, shooting, reading and a variety of charity organisations.
