Andy Gwynn and Mary Collin
Birmingham pin host
Meet your pin host
We are Mary Collin & Andy Gwynn and together we run the Birmingham pin meeting on the 3rd Thursday of each month at The Crowne Plaza Hotel, Birmingham NEC (Just off J6 M42).This is the ‘original’ pin meeting, founded by our good friend Simon Zutshi back in 2003 and we’re delighted he asked us to host it.
We are passionate about teaching people how to successfully invest in property and create additional streams of income, giving you more time to do the things you want to do and build your long-term wealth.
Our background is in business coaching, training and professional speaking. We have a portfolio of property in the Midlands and the north, as well as having a wonderful home in Spain. (Read more below!)
Andy is one of the most sought after Linkedin Speakers in the UK and Europe (even the world!) and we have a team of coaches and trainers helping people make better connections, in less time, using Linkedin. Andy has already coached hundreds of Business Owners and Property Investors to greater profitability, financial freedom and better relationships personally and professionally. Together we think of ourselves as contact brokers.
We started investing in property in 2001. Mary was the Founder President of the PSA (Professional Speaking Association) in the Midlands and Simon was part of her team back in 2000. Andy coached Simon in his business during the development of Simon’s Mastermind Programme. Andy attended MM2 in 2007 to help develop the programme further as well as sensibly applying what Simon was teaching! As you can see, building and keeping great relationships matters to us.
We are now focussed on growing our HMO portfolio and Andy has teamed up with two clients to source larger deals.
With some amazing experiences in property we have a lot to share with you. (We learned about lease options through pin, sold our house for the second time – at market value – 3 years after selling it on a 5 year lease option and having been paid £50,000 over those 3 years! We also have a house in Spain bought at 50% below current market value.
We have gained so much – education, knowledge and support - and love the supportive networking environment and specialist training provided by pin for all levels of experience and we look forward to sharing it with you and welcoming you at our meeting – it’s the 3rd THURSDAY of the month – why not pop the dates in your diary now.
