Our Story

Goliath Property Academy (formerly Goliath Sourcing Academy) started life as a deal packaging training company back in 2015, following lots of requests for Mark to educate people in what he was doing (running his own successful property consultancy). 

Over the years, Goliath has leveraged Mark’s wealth of property industry expertise and created numerous strategy based courses in topics such as Rent to Rent, Lease Options and Assisted Sales as well as the more “traditional” strategies such as buy to let, buy refurbish, refinance and flips. 

Now , Goliath focus on helping you build a property business sourcing deals for your own portfolio first and package the deals you don’t want second! 

And all this is done by leveraging other people’s money so you can start building your own portfolio no matter how much you have saved in the bank.

Our Mission

“Help you build a property business to achieve your financial & lifestyle goals.”

Whether it’s through education and support via our “Do It Yourself” and “Done With You” offers or becoming your marketing partner via our “Done For You” Agency, our mission is always to ensure you are building the right property business to hit your goals.
