We are Property Filter
Our vision is to generalise success in Property for all and level up the property investment industry.
Our Mission is to provide the best data, tools and methodology, empowering our members to get predictable success in property for the best value for money.
Having had a fast-paced carrier in engineering, worked for other people for 10 years and reaching a point where getting the boss’s job was not that exciting, and;
Having investing in property on the side since 2012, we really got bitten by the property bug in 2018 when we understood the magic of creative finance, BRR and all the advantages of the UK property market.
We were hooked, but the reality of finding deals was really challenging.
We spent 18 months wasting our time scrolling through the portals, randomly booking viewings based on the pictures and the layout, only to find ourselves queueing at viewings where the vendors were not motivated. Still working full time, stacking viewings every Saturday, and week after week delaying our property progress by another week.
Then we started wasting our money on untargeted so-called Direct to Vendor strategies, at a rate of £500-£600pm. And here’s the thing: everyone wants a Direct to Vendor deal, but everyone is sending Direct to Owner marketing, sending letters to people who have no intention of selling.
We took a step back, and thought to ourselves, there had to be a better way. With a passion for studying success, went on a mission to speak with some of the most successful investor in the country and gather their secrets. We gathered a set of principles that makes success in property very predictable. We put all these principles at work in a software we initially created for ourselves, all about identifying motivated sellers, all about doing deals. We started to do 10 times fewer viewings, but the quality of conversations we had with vendors went through the roof.
Fast-forward the following 18 months, we built a portfolio of 25 units in the Birmingham area, got full time in property. Guillaume went on to win Property Entrepreneur of the year in 2021 and deal of the year in 2022.
This attracted some attention and everyone wanted in on “the secret”. We started sharing the software within our property circles and very quickly people started to see exponential results in their property businesses. We had to share it with the world.
In everything we do, in every decision we take, we are committed to the Results of our members.
We’ve designed and built Property Filter from first principles into a predictable blueprint to find deals. All we care about is providing solutions that gets you to find great deals in the most efficient way so you achieve your property & life goals.
When it comes to providing a product or service to our members, we only settle for Excellence.
We’ve built and continue to improve what is now the most reliable and comprehensive property related database. We are committed to only publish the best, world class and most reliable information and tools that our members can trust and get results from.
The hardest thing it to keep it Simple. We believe that one does not need to be a data scientist to get the results they want in their property and life goals.
We believe that Less is More. It’s not about “what else can we cram into the software”, rather “how does that helps removing friction for our members to get results.

The Property Networking
In 2023, we ran the inaugural Property Networking Hosts Summit, gathering 70+ hosts from 55+ meetings, that collectively welcome 2000+ attendees to their meetings every month.
We set up the event as a thank you for the hosts having invited us to speak at 55+ of their meeting in the same year, trusting us with adding value to their communities and helping us to spread the Property Filter message and methodology to find deals.
This was an invitation only event, only for property meetings hosts and property community leaders.
We want to build relationships with every host, we want to add value to every meeting and their community.
We believe in the power of sharing & collaboration and this is why we created this forum. The plan is to run it every year going forward, with exclusive 2 events in 2024.

Property Filter is 3 time platinum sponsor and one time co-organiser of the Property Entrepreneurs Get Up Give Back initiative, raising in excess of £500,000 between 2021 and 2023 across 3 campaigns, for very important homeless, mental health and food bank charities.
2021: GUGB Platinum Sponsorship – The 100,000,000 Steps Challenge
In response to the growing homelessness crisis in the UK, where over 300,000 individuals have been categorised as homeless, the Property Entrepreneurs embarked on an ambitious 100,000,000 steps challenge in 2021. This daunting task, equivalent to circumnavigating the globe twice, was set to be completed within a span of 90 days. With Property Filter’s platinum sponsorship, and the dedication of the team, they managed to exceed their goal by raising £126k+ and achieving 116,079,953 steps. All funds raised were channelled to [Buses4Homeless](https://buses4homeless.org/), contributing to the establishment of one of the UK’s premier homeless rehabilitation centres.
2022: GUGB Platinum Sponsorship – MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS
In 2022, the focus shifted to the pressing issue of mental health among young adults. With staggering wait times for NHS counselling services, many struggling youths find themselves without immediate aid, leading to severe consequences. Property Filter, as a co-organiser and platinum sponsor, supported [The Lucy Rayner Foundation](https://thelucyraynerfoundation.com/). This foundation, birthed from a personal tragedy, offers immediate 1-1 counselling for young individuals in need, bridging the waiting gap. Additionally, Property Filter also championed [StrongMen](https://www.strongmen.org.uk/), an initiative that offers therapeutic retreats for grieving men. Funds raised throughout this year aimed to facilitate 12 months of counselling for 250 young adults and sponsor weekend retreats for men grappling with loss.
A record of £168k+ was raised that year.
2023: GUGB Participation – Hike Against Hunger
The escalating issue of food poverty became the focal point in 2023. With a disturbing statistic indicating that 5.3 million people had to choose between sustenance and warmth, the Property Entrepreneurs aligned with the “Hike Against Hunger” initiative. In collaboration with GUGB, Property Filter supported three pivotal charities: [Magic Breakfast](https://www.magicbreakfast.com/), providing breakfasts to children ensuring hunger isn’t an educational barrier; The Tri Services Veterans Support Centre, offering meals for veterans and the local community, especially during the pandemic; and [The Trussell Trust](https://www.trusselltrust.org/), a comprehensive network aimed at eradicating the necessity of food banks in the UK through both immediate food assistance and longer-term advocacy efforts. An incredible £140k+ was raised that year!
