Susannah Cole is highly respected in the Property Investing Community. Susannah is a well established property expert who has implemented a very successful flipping strategy, within a buzzing market place. She has a substantial property portfolio that include HMO’s and single lets, Serviced Apartments and blocks of flats and has raised £ millions of pounds in Private Finance.
Kitchen Table Start Up
Susannah started The Good Property Company in 2011, as a Kitchen table start up. In that time, she and her team have sourced, bought, sold or let out more than 200 properties, with a value of £45 million, and an agreed purchase price of £30 million (before refurb).
Susannah was Head of Household (a happier name for single parent) looking after 2 boisterous and loving children, and working in a full time J.O.B. (just over broke) and knew she needed to make a real difference in her life and in the lives of her children, as being Mum meant there was only a Plan A, no Plan B for her family, which felt insecure.
Her driver was family security rather than (flash) cash, and so for the first 18 months in property she did a full time job, initially took £60k out of her own home mortgage, then raised £600k in Private Finance in order to buy her initial (now dinky) £1.8 million portfolio in Bristol, which then allowed her to jump out of her J.O.B. and work full time in property. She now has an 8 figure property portfolio.
She then continued to buy property non stop to build an eight figure property portfolio, which hit her family security goal, and then went on to keep buying (well, why not!) property, to include a Grade 2* listed Chapel, a Grade 2 house with no roof, a flat for her son, near her parents (Grandma’s cooking is the best) and a funky house earmarked for her daughter (but don’t tell her because pearls are formed with some grit first)
Not bad for a kitchen table start up.
We at TGPC have raised millions of pounds in Private Finance, run a sourcing business for 5 years (the plan was always to have a 5 year run, now no longer open for new investors), done a ton of Buy to Sell projects, worked (and continue to do so) with some great investors (and the odd one that required patience!) and we have build a fab team at TGPC, with great memories of our much loved TGPC Originals, who have all gone on to do good stuff in their lives. We miss them.
Her background is entrepreneurial:
- She started a Fair Trade business when she was 23, which developed into a chain of retail shops in Scotland, running it for 7 years
- She then worked full time advising international cashmere companies at Board level
- On top of loving having a family, and ensuring Sunday was for family roast dinners, did an MBA in the evenings, graduating with a First.
- She was part of the founding team of a Scottish wide youth volunteering charity which clocked up 1,000,000 volunteering hours in the first 18 months from start up.
- Then came South from Scotland with her family to Bristol, and ran KISS the dance music radio station, which was a blast. (though on her first day in the London headquarters she did not recognise Rihanna at the station, d’oh!)
- Her final job (ever!) was as Marketing Director for the SS Great Britain, a wonderful Bristol museum.

Susannah and the TGPC team
"Having investigated over 20 property ""gurus"" who offered coaching, I decided to join Susie's year long coaching programme.
The quality content of the course was delivered in a slick and polished format, and Susie's enthusiasm for property and people shined through. But the real test of a coaching programme is: was it worth it, and would I do it again?
The answers are: Yes and Yes.
I have no regrets attending Susie's coaching programme as it definitely accelerated my property journey with practical tips and advice, for example, how to raise private investment for property deals.
Best of all, the direct £ value of the programme, from deals done with other mentees in the room, was worth many times the cost. So in a way the course was free, which is good because that's my favourite price!
If you're looking for a coaching programme, and what Susie offers fits your needs, I'm happy to recommend it."
