TV property advice and commentary is changing and ‘The Property Brothers’ are leading the way. The Property Brothers life experiences colour their TV commentary
Josh and Jordan bring a refreshing approach to TV offering property advice and commentary. They are brothers with a true and lifetime passion for property. Both have held senior
positions in large property companies from an early age. They are able to talk about home and property related topics from a contemporary, youthful yet mature point of view. And…they are experienced – having started at the bottom of the property world and
worked their way up. The two are very relatable with fresh opinions on the property market
Relatable to young first-time buyers who find the sales or lettings process stressful and complicated – no jargon approach to offering advice.
Josh is qualified as a general practice Chartered Surveyor and has MRICS status as a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). This accreditation provides an assurance to colleagues, clients and peers that Josh works to the highest industry standards, has market knowledge advantages and a high level of recognition within the industry.
From kids they ran and managed a family portfolio of buy-to-let properties during secondary school. Whether it be dealing with management of tenants or assisting with lease negotiations they were always getting stuck in. (They were only young!)
They always found ways to make money whilst at school – whether it be an eBay business selling unwanted furniture or buying in the new trends in bulk (trainers, phones, headphones etc.) – it’s fair to say The Property Brothers have an entrepreneurial streak. The boys have practical experience in residential developments from start to finish. Beginning with buying the land, agreeing a strategy, appointing a contractor, managing the construction, proposing a sales strategy and implementation, arranging sales launches, managing the senior lending finances (the banks), negotiating buyers, arranging the Help to Buy Equity Loan, and finally, exchanging and completing with buyers. There is literally no area of property the brothers are not experienced in commenting on.
Between them they have assisted over 500 consumers buy and develop property so they know the questions your viewers are asking on a daily basis.
The brothers have literally seen it all – from the issues buyers experience when first moving in, not obtaining mortgages, problems in construction, hiring scam merchants etc.
