In today’s show, Richard sits down with Andrea Carpenter, author of new book ‘High Rise And Fall: The Making of the European Real Estate Industry’
10 years on from the 2008 financial crash, Andrea reflects on how the European commercial property industry transformed from a local, small-scale business to an international, financially sophisticated, multi-billion-euro industry that was ultimately left devastated.
Renting. Dread, anxiety, late night phone calls, problem tenants, burst pipes, and relentless stress.
That’s some of the negative connotations that make many in the property world think of chaos.
And that’s where “Arthur” steps in. To bring sanity to the chaos.
Marc Trup, the founder of Arthur Online explains how that’s achieved…
Business – a ‘commercial activity’, ‘an activity that someone is engaged in’
Those are some of the dictionary descriptions for what business is.
In one particular area of business, I personally came together with 3 other gentlemen: Paul McFadden, Barry McEwan, and Ian Brierley, to get involved in property investing many years ago.
Very quickly, and ever since that time, it became something much more than just business…
There’s just not enough female voices.
When it comes to business, and property, in particular, the quota is not high enough.

A WEEK OF FREE PROPERTY TRAINING!
Rather than start with your property products and services, start with understanding who exactly you’re going to be selling to.
Who is your market?
What do they want?
How do they think?
Where do they live and move?
What value can you deliver to them…
Who can really get involved in property, business and investing?
That’s a theme that’s come from many listeners’ questions in recent weeks.
Can I do it?
Can anyone do it?
Is property investing not some old, dull world dominated by old white men at the end of their corporate lives with tons of pension cash to buy discounted properties?
What about me; have asked our female listeners.
Will having these young kids stop me from having my own business; have asked our newbie parent listeners.
Do I need to wait; have asked our young listeners.
The short answer is no…
Is a problem shared, a problem halved?
Or have you just doubled up on your problem?
Do great minds think alike?
Or do too many cooks spoil the broth?
Are you still reeling from the crash of 2008, or have you become cocky about the UK’s low interest rates?
Are you filled with doom-and-gloom for financial prospects, or can you see no end to your financial stability?
Or are you somewhere in between those extremes?
Wherever you find yourself on that optimistic/pessimistic spectrum, ask yourself if you’re ready.
Are you ready and prepared for the next crash…
