How White Box Property are Disrupting the Market

With low investment yields and Brexit all but done, public interest in property investing is at an all-time high. In addition, individuals want more from their properties post-pandemic. Industry bodies predict there could be a glut of supply in the UK’s largest cities – however, this, of course, creates opportunities in other areas of the market.

Property investment advice can be opaque and difficult to grasp, but there is a rising star in this field. Lloyd Girardi and his business partner, Andi Cooke, are quickly becoming the Go-To experts for individuals who want to become Property Developers.

The two are co-founders of White Box Property Solutions (established in 2014), the country’s largest Property Development training firm. White Box has helped many wannabe developers fulfill their dreams of becoming a property developer, one of their recent students is about to make a profit of £850,000 from their first-ever development of 3 houses.   

White Box has a development portfolio of over £25 Million since 2014 and has created 223 units to date. Girardi and Cooke are now using that success to inspire others and revolutionize the property development industry, helping aspiring developers. What separates them from others in the sector is that they do what they teach and are currently working on a pipeline of deals worth £3.5m

In spite of there being 2.5 Million landlords in the UK, the transition rates to property developers are very low. The White Box duo specializes in giving individuals the confidence, mindset, and knowledge to aim for the pinnacle of property investing that is development.

Their innovative #whiteboxway method is a thought process that can help anyone who is keen to get involved in the property asset class but needs guidance. Girardi and Cooke affirm a lot of their clients are landlords looking for the next step, tradesmen who want to do it for themselves, and investors who are in need of that final push and assistance. The duo pride on being open, honest, and transparent with their information – sharing not only what has gone well but also the mistakes they made along the way, which is not always the case with other property gurus.

What is striking is the team’s genuine passion and assertiveness in communicating about property developments. Girardi had strong experience with Taylor Wimpey and an independent mortgage broker in his early career, with Cooke running a successful construction firm. With their work on Developments, HMO’s, conversions, clients can be assured they are dealing with a duo that firmly has their fingers on the property pulse.

Students can learn all elements of the Property Development and investing cycle with White Box. In 2015, the team launched the innovative “Property Developers Secrets,” a 3-day course aimed to educate interested investors on how to become developers with little or no upfront capital. 

Three years later, Girardi was able to document his unique journey in his book, “Property Development: discover the secrets to becoming a property developer, from scratch, using none of your own money.” The book was a hit and evidenced his understanding of the market.

White Box’s seminars and online courses are also met with glowing reviews by clients, “the duo is genuine, succinct and transparent (…) their strategies and methodologies are easy to follow”.

 Girardi and Cooke aim to continue to inspire their students in 2021 and beyond, with a key focus on ensuring all of their students are well-equipped and passionate. Girardi affirms that investing in education is only wasted if you do not utilize it. With his sustained success, you would be foolish not to listen.
