Nicholas Dutton, Director


As a property investment specialist with a strong finance background, including personal and commercial banking. Nicholas has previously managed a portfolio of property clients with a turnover up to £25 million. 

“As an aspiring entrepreneur investing in property myself, I enjoy working with like- minded, driven individuals. I am an active member of Progressive Property Network, Property Investors Network, Property Hub, and UK Property Network, which means I can relate to my clients and continuously learning a variety of strategies. 

I am a confident, self-driven and organised individual with good morals and dreams for my future.

I previously worked with Lloyds Bank for 5 years, which was an invaluable experience looking after property clients and property lending, as well as giving me a sound base for working in a strict compliance background. As Lloyds prides itself on customer service, I know how to interact and adapt to different clients and their needs.”

On a personal level, Nicholas is the host of the Entrepreneur Academy podcast and Engaging Networking alongside hobbies such as Fishing and Golf.
