After leaving school at 17 Jesse set up a small sandwich and coffee bar, 1 shop grew to be small chain covering the midlands. Business was good, in 2002 Jesse became a property investor more by default than design by buying the freehold of one of the shops the business was trading from. Mid 2006 Jesse became interested in investing in more property and asked his bank manager if he could re-mortgage the business premises bought just over 3 years earlier. 3 weeks later the re-finance money was in the bank and a realisation hit. More money had been made on the capital growth of the property in 3 years, than had been on sandwiches in ALL the years the shop had been open! Sandwiches looked less fun from that moment on. Jesse now knows this was more luck than strategy, but it was this luck that got him going.
In the intervening years Jesse has gone on to build up a £10million+ property portfolio and invested for and with partners in a diverse range of real estate. The portfolio spans flats, blocks of flats, retail units, commercial units but Jesse now concentrates 100% on investing in the same way he advocates in the Fossey Taylor method. He eats his own cookie in other words.
