Craig Sullivan is a Property Entrepreneur with a true passion for Hands-on property developing and is also known from his Instagram alias of ‘The Property Apprentice’ which is notorious for early morning motivational sing-songs and property ‘How to’ videos.
He purchased his first property as a Joint Venture with his Dad while at University after seeing a gap in the market for High end Student HMO’s. This was an auction purchase at the age of 20 while he studied Business at degree level, but shortly after attending his placement year he decided not to go back and has worked in Sales roles for major media companies such as Disney, Warner Brothers and Viacom. During this time, he purchased his second property (again from auction) of which was documented by the BBC and appeared on their hit show ‘Homes Under the Hammer’ (YouTube link – HERE).
After achieving great results and feedback from these investments, he soon came to realise that Student Houses of Multiple Occupation was his key to financial freedom and began to replicate his business model; buying below market value properties, adding value cost effectively, securing good tenants and refinancing to repeat the process.

Craig was also nominated for Business Excellence in the Kent Independent Traders Awards 2016 where he received runner up in ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ and ‘Growth Business of the Year’ categories.
He has appeared on multiple property Podcasts and is also a regular speaker on local TV Station KMTV, where he is asked to comment on recent property headlines and topics.
