One-on-one Coaching

A coach is someone who has achieved the results you desire. A coach can guide you, hold you accountable and show you the quickest path to success, but it still requires you to do all the work. My team and I provide an exclusive one-on-one coaching experience for serious investors. Below is a high-level explanation of the 6 fundamental sessions that make up his coaching programme. We’ve included links to articles written by Laurens so you can get a sense of his knowledge and experience.

Group Coaching

We understand that not everyone will be able to afford the one-on-one coaching product, especially with our current economic environment. Therefore Laurens and his team have created a Group Coaching programme. This programme will consist of 5 people joining Laurens through the 6 sessions laid out above. The 6 sessions will be done online and enable you to go on the property journey as a group. The downside is that you won’t have the intimacy of the one-on-one sessions, but you will get exposed to the fundamental learnings to become a professional property investor.

About your coach

Laurens Boel, professional property investor, author and coach started investing in property at the end of 2014 after being retrenched from a global IT company. Being retrenched taught him that relying on one income stream is incredibly risky. Since 2014 Laurens successfully built a local and international property portfolio and been involved in over 100 successful property transactions.

He specializes in multi-lets, student accommodation and investing overseas (specifically in the UK). His investment philosophy is simple: make sure the property makes money from day ONE!
