Buy to Let Trainer / International Mentor/ Investor
Arden Hanley is a native Australian who has lived in the UK for a number of years. Before moving into property investment full-time, and with a few investment properties under his belt in Australia, Arden enjoyed a career in the media industry, with lots of travelling, before settling in the UK, where he currently resides.
Arden’s first UK property purchase was a Buy to Let on a Council estate in Nottingham at the start of 2010. By 2013, Arden had completed over 40 deals in Nottingham and built a portfolio of 25 houses (a combination of Buy to Lets, HMOs and a small block of flats).
During his property investing career, Arden has focused heavily on sourcing the best deals combined with direct and guerrilla marketing strategies, to get as close to vendors as possible. This means that in addition to managing his own deals, Arden has successfully sourced on many deals to other property investors, thus creating a great sideline business and helping other investors on their property investment journey.
Arden’s career has covered off a cross-section of property investment strategies: From Buy to Let, Refurbishments, Flips, Freehold to Leasehold, Lease Options, Distressed Property and Creative Finance to Redevelopment and Flips. Working through different and often complementary strategies has taught Arden to put the right team in place for each specific project - working smarter rather than harder.
Outside of his property investing business, Arden is a Trainer and Mentor for LEA and still retains a foothold in Australia, with a music publishing business and a radio production business for the US broadcast market.
