ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My name is Mike Woods, I started my Professional career studying Building Studies and Architecture in 1986. Having worked in the Architectural profession for number of years I established my own Architectural Practice ‘Concept Architectural Services’ in 1995. In 1998 I purchased my first buy to let property, by the financial crash in 2007 I had built a portfolio worth over £2.5m, primarily of single let and commercial properties. In addition, as an NHBC Developer between 2002 and 2010 I undertook small to medium size development projects.
I am still personally involved in the running of my property portfolio in the UK which now consists of over 25 HMO rooms, 48 single lets and Commercial property worth £4.75m.
In 2005 I am proud to say I won the Daily Telegraph and Homes and Renovation National self build award for the design and build for my own home in the Brecon Beacons National Park South Wales.
Due to popular demand I wrote ‘How to SUCCESSFULLY invest in property’ which provides guidance on how to become a property investor. The book contains detailed and real examples of my personal experience of 30 years in the world of Property.
I am proud to be a Welsh Assembly Government Business Mentor and Role Model, also a Business mentor for the Princes Trust where I provide advice and inspiration to young people on a volunteer basis. In addition I am a Wealth Coach for Kevin Green Wales.

Mike Woods is the consummate professional when it comes to "Property Investment".He is also the goto guy when building a long-term property portfolio. Mike aptly describes the history of the property market and his own personal journey into this exciting and profitable field. I was fortunate to hear Mike speak at a property workshop recently. He is a down to earth and inspiring speaker. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending his book!!! Buy it now!! It really is a bargain with lots of useful information
I dont usually have time to read but as this wasnt available as an audiobook I made time. Very well written, easy to read...in fact I couldnt put it down. I'll be continuing to use it as reference too. Despite extensive research before reading this book I learnt quite a bit. One thing I put into practice enabled me to find and purchase an investment property that may well have passed me by beforehand so this book has paid for itself around 10,000 times over at this point!
