Director of Property
30 years, 14,000 units and £1 billion
“I’ve seen the market at its best, and its worst. I’ve been through two recessions, and seen interest rates at 17%. This puts my feet firmly on the ground when assessing properties…I’m as well equipped to avoid and to deal with difficult situations, as I am to identify exciting investment opportunities.”
Robert is one of the most experienced and respected residential property professionals in the UK. Formerly Global Director of Residential Property at the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), he also ran a £500m residential portfolio as Head of Residential Funds at Invista Real Estate.

He is also a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and a member of the residential committee of the British Property Federation. Rob approaches every property purchase with military precision, following his 13 years spent in the Territorial Army, and can often be found tearing across the country on his motorbike searching for the best property investments for our community.

‘The business is as much about people and relationships as it is about bricks and mortar. It is important to be aware of everyone involved in a transaction whether it be agents, professionals,
tenants or investors.’
Eamonn has spent many years identifying and securing attractive investment properties, as well as managing them. Previously, he worked as Area Manager at BPT Plc – then the largest quoted residential landlord in the UK. He was also Managing Director at Simmonds & Partners Chartered Surveyors, part of one of the largest property services groups in the UK at the time. In more recent years, Eamonn was brave enough to take the plunge and set up on his own – he started a niche property development company to great success. He discovered his love of property at a young age, buying his first property while at university aged just 18, and rented the other bedrooms to his friends. Eamonn’s claim to fame is that he once bought a flat in Earlsfield that featured on Homes Under the Hammer.

“I’m very experienced in managing rental properties, there’s very little I haven’t seen and I’m proud of my ability to build and maintain good relationships with tenants.”
Helen has extensive experience in managing properties and refurbishments, as well as tenants. She manages our portfolio of properties to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Helen used to work for the UK’s largest listed residential landlord, Grainger plc, in the Property and Asset Management team. She also ran a portfolio within one of the UK’s largest market-led residential investment funds, GRIP, in partnership with APG, who are Europe’s biggest institutional investor. As well as day to day management, she dealt with large scale, high value sales and acquisitions. Helen is also a classics geek, and can read Latin and Ancient Greek. She’s an absurdly fast reader (a book a week), and this comes in handy when reviewing all of the paperwork that goes with each of our property purchases.

“I’ve had quite a wide range of experience already, from plush properties in prime London, to ones that require complete redevelopment.”
A recent university graduate, Ruman was the first person to join Robert on the property team. Fascinated by the idea of property crowdfunding after reading a news article on Property Partner, Ruman approached the team – and the rest is history. Before this, he worked at Chesterton Humberts, a prime location estate agency in Hyde Park. Ruman has a keen interest in property renovation projects. He’s already been involved with over 15, and managed two of them himself. He also holds the title of Property Partner Table Tennis champion, and used to play at national tournaments.
