Goliath Property Academy (formerly known as 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 most of our attention on lead generation and conversion due to the importance of getting this part of the process right. You can have all the strategy knowledge in the world but if you have no leads, it’s useless!
In 2021, Mark joined forces with Jo Andrews, a highly experienced marketing genius, to bring our students the sales and marketing skills, techniques and resources to ensure they’re always one step ahead of the competition when it comes to finding both on and off marketing property deals!
Whether it’s through education and support via our “Do It Yourself” and “Done With You” offers or you prefer to bring us on as your marketing partner via our “Done For You” Agency, we will always ensure we do our best to ensure your property business has a constant flow of leads.
With 17 years in the property industry, the last 8 of which running his own business, there’s not much Mark doesn’t know about the residential property sector!
Starting his career as a Trainee Lettings Negotiator in 2005, Mark went on to expand his skills across all the residential disciplines before finishing his “employed” career as an Area Manager for the largest corporate agency brand in the UK.
Mark went on to launch Goliath Property Solutions in 2014, a property consultancy service offering homeowners an alternative to traditional property agency and investors a ‘hands off’ portfolio building service specialising in the north of England.
Even before starting his property career, Mark has always had a flair for lead generation and converting those leads into sales (“gift of the gab” some say). Telesales, door to door sales and then recruitment will no doubt have played their part in that!
Mark now shares his sales and marketing skills with the Goliath Property Academy students and also works closely with our “Done For You” clients to ensure, not only that leads are generated, but that they’re converted into deals too!
