James’ remarkable success demonstrates that age is no barrier to building a career in the property industry, and with access to the right training, anyone can achieve incredible results.

Talking about his experience, James said: “I have wanted to get into property development for a while so several months ago, I began studying online with Property Training Limited.

“Their property management modules really gave me a solid foundation for everything I needed to know.

“It was stressful trying to complete the development alongside studying for my A-levels, but I felt like I had all the knowledge I needed to see me through the project.”

The development James contributed to involved the transformation of five barns, purchased for £300,000, into three barn conversions and a new farmhouse.

While the barns sold for approximately £700-750,000 each, the farmhouse is expected to be valued at around £850,000.

The project wouldn’t have been possible without the knowledge he gained from the Property Training online modules, which teach essential property development skills via a monthly subscription starting just £9.99 a month.
