For Nicole Bremner, property was not an obvious choice. An ex-banker with three kids to work around, she had tried all the usuals – photography, cooking, even knitting. None of them allowed her to contribute to the family fi nances in the way she wanted. Since her first property development in 2010 (her own home), Nicole’s gross development value has risen to over £120 million. Most recently, she has embraced crowdfunding – raising over £4 million with her team – and currently manages £10m in investor funds. She regularly speaks about her journey into property and entrepreneurship.
