Building your HMO property business just got easier

You're just a few clicks away from gaining access to all the training, advice, support & resources you need to start, scale, and systemise your HMO property or business today.

Does this sound familiar to you?

  • You want to build your HMO property business, but you feel overwhelmed about what ​steps to take next.
  • ​You struggle to establish a vision, strategy, or goals, and you are unsure if what you’re doing is right.​
  • You need to find, fund and refurbish more projects, and you want to create better, market leading HMO product​
  • You need to streamline your HMO business by implementing systems, but you don't know which ones, or how to do it.​
  • You have seen other people creating incredible HMOs, but you don’t have the confidence or skill to do it yourself.
If it does, then you already know what a minefield it can be trying to get reliable, high-quality advice & support.

What inspired us to build the HMO Roadmap

  • We were tired of hearing stories of people attending expensive courses that left them feeling ​confused, out of pocket and unable to build the property business they wanted.
  • There was no one-stop-shop for all your HMO training and support needs.​
  • There was a lack of comprehensive and experience-based advice in the industry.
  • There was no solution to getting the support you need, on-demand.​
  • There was no solution available for people who already had some experience but wanted to scale their business up.
Thankfully, we think different!

Meet Andy

Hey, I'm Andy Graham, the founder and the lead trainer at The HMO Roadmap!​

I've been investing in HMO properties for over a decade, and my story began in 2009! I qualified as a physio some time before this (but quickly realised it wasn't for me) and I worked hard and saved as much money as possible. As soon as I could afford to, I purchased and refurbish my first property (prices were a lot cheaper back then) which I converted into a five-bed student house. Of course, it wasn't long before I 'got the bug', and through my mid to late twenties, I did the same thing again and again until I eventually built a portfolio of HMO properties. ​

Fast forward to 2015 and I co-founded Smart Property, a specialist HMO property investment and management company. I started working with John Paul (you can see more about him below) and the business began to grow! In 2016 Smart Property was valued at £1.3m by Crowdcube after we successfully raised equity investment to feed our growth! We've since gone on to grow the business significantly and in 2019, we managed close to 100 HMO properties and have raised several million pounds of private investment. ​

When I was first starting, it was difficult to find the support I needed, and I found that building a HMO property business could be very challenging at times, but despite these challenges, I have remained committed to improving the standards of accommodation for young people in the UK. ​

I write as a regular columnist in different magazines about a variety of HMO topics, I co-founded The HMO Mastermind and I'm the host of The HMO Podcast! That's why in 2020 (with a big nudge from John Paul) I decided it was time to collate all my knowledge and experience and build a one-stop-shop for the HMO community!

John Paul

Meet John

Hi, I’m John Paul, or JP to my friends, and I’ve spent the last decade building a large and profitable sales and letting business that I now spend less than a few hours each month running. I've been working with Andy in the HMO industry for 5 years and I’d like to take the credit for all of his achievements too, but the truth is, I can only take credit for most of them...

Jokes aside, I’ve been in business since 2008, a crazy time to set up a property business I know! I quickly grew my agency business to 10 branches, 60 staff and over 2300 properties under management, and we sell over 400 properties a year as well. I'm an ARLA Propertymark board member, I'm a leading authority on Rent To Own and I've successfully built several other businesses including my training and consultancy business and my own property portfolio. ​

I've done pretty well at various award ceremonies and in 2014 we won the Sunday Times letting agency of the year which was a huge achievement for us. We've also won as the best agent in the North for 4 years running and for 4 years we were never out the top 3 for best Training and Development in the UK.​

One of our greatest achievements was in 2013 when we gained investors in People GOLD accreditation. We were, and still are, the only agent to gain this on our very first attempt! Oh, and in 2015 I was given an outstanding contribution to lettings at the Sunday Times awards as well – something I’m especially proud of. ​

​I've been a Non-Executive Director at Smart Property for four years and I've worked alongside Andy to build this into a substantial HMO property business, offering my support and experience in areas of business growth, strategy, systemisation and leadership! Andy and I make a great team, and that's why we've decided to bring our skills and experience together in The HMO Roadmap for you!
