Mr. Rafael dos Santos

Award winning property entrepreneur, author and TED speaker

Hello everyone,

I'm Brazilian by birth and British by choice. At the age of 22 (2003) I started my property business by borrowing £5.000 from the bank. In 2014 when I sold my estate agency I was managing 50 houses and 15 members of staff. The company was turning over £1.2million. My agency managed and let rooms in big houses (4-7 bedrooms - in the UK they are called 'flatshares'. I also managed 15 holiday flats in London (1, 2 and 3 bedrooms).
I have 13 years of experience managing, buying, selling, refurbishing, decorating and renting out houses, apartments, rooms and holiday flats.

I had up to 200 tenants, so I know a thing or two about property. :)
Today I am completing an MBA from University of Reading and for the past few years I have won a few business awards, including the Sunday Times 'Top 100 Most Inspiring Entrepreneurs in the UK 2016' - one of the most prestigious business awards in the UK.
I've been invited to give a TED Talk in July (2016) which has been viewed over 12.500 up to date - search for 'What it takes to be a migrant entrepreneur'. :)

I am happy to give advice privately via skype or face to face if you are in London.

I am in the process of writing my next book about business, to be launched summer 2017. I hope you enjoy my courses. They are not theory based on research. They are based on day to day real experience. All the highs and lows of running a property business and the knowledge I gained I decided to share with everyone.

I hope you enjoy the courses.
