We're Martin and Sarah Rapley.

Peter Fannon

Before the kids came along Julie and Peter bought property, lived in them, added value somehow, then refinanced with “Let to Buy” mortgage and moved to another property, that was working really well until the 2007/8 crash. At the same time they were also building a Letting agency in Brighton and Hove. They were the first agency to offer Multi lets to their landlords and the first agency advertising nationally on Right move to have real video tours of our properties for tenants.  

After the crash Peter needed to find a way to continue buying property which was when he came across pin after meeting Zoe Cairns at a London property event. He spent a few years buying BMV properties in different parts of the country before deciding that after 20 years as a letting agent and with 2 young daughters their time was more valuable to them, so they sold the agency and he now manages their properties from home at times that suit his family.

They have single lets, multi lets that are let through a local charity and an evolving holiday/SA let business. They have money invested in other people’s projects and are working with JV partners who invest in their. His current project involves a house once owned by William Pitt (The Elder) a former Prime Minister.

Always ambitious and driven, she was consistently recognised for her successful sourcing and execution of deals, understanding investor needs and market challenges, culminating in her being awarded the title of Top Performing Branch Manager.  From here there was only one natural next step - In 2008, she launched her own estate agents offering sales and lettings services across South East England. With hard work, commitment and a great team, they grew their portfolio to over 300 managed properties and were voted Best Independent in Kent at the ESTA’s in 2015.
