Hi, I’m George Gannon.
I’m sitting in the site office of the old council offices in Doncaster. Currently an 83 room, commercial to residential conversion project. There are plans, tape measures and whiteboards all around me. I am trying to write a few words for this ‘about us’ page. This is making me reflect on the amazing journey in property I have had, and the people I have met along the way.
We currently have three major projects on the go with a joint GDV (Gross Development Value) of over 6 million pounds. When I was a young man and first got the property ‘bug’, I never would have thought this was possible.
At the age of 21, I completely renovated my mum’s house. I was so thrilled with the outcome, I set off and found a bigger project. A derelict pub!
With no cash of my own, somehow I got the finance. Then I hired a crew of teenagers (all mates) to do the conversion. Nine months later we had converted the pub into four flats. I made a £72,000 profit! Can you imagine that… at 22!!!
Then the deals got bigger and the years flew by. The project we’re now working on is almost complete. The council offices have been converted into rooms and apartments. All the rooms are now let. They are generating a substantial monthly income.
My journey has also included property training through workshops, courses and mentoring.
BIG NEWS… We are close to finishing our first ‘online course’. It is due for release soon. I have been working on this with my business partner, Helen Logan Wood. It’s been a labour of love and crammed with valuable content. All learned the hard way – by me! We will keep you posted!
Are you excited by the idea of making a living from property? Here are my thoughts…
“At age of 22 I had no money and limited experience, but I managed to complete my first Commercial to Residential Conversion. I found a way to do it… and with the right support, so can you!”

Final thought… this page could have been called ‘about me’. I prefer to call it ‘about us’. I have the privilege of working with some amazing people and it is definitely a team effort. In particular I would like to acknowledge my colleagues:
Helen Logan Wood – Education Director
Graham Milburn (with me from the beginning!) – Services and Technical Director
Tony Gannon – Dad, mentor and master builder
Andrew Brown – Marketing Director
Of course we would be nowhere without our investors, partners and students. Here is what some of them have to say…
What our participants have to say
“With all the potential strategies I was lacking focus and direction, getting nowhere fast. Within a week of working with George I was focused on 3 activities and taking consistent positive action. Soon after that I was bidding on a number of projects with the confidence and belief I can do this!”Adrian Garvey, Property Investor
“…you were quite an inspiration, shortly afterwards I started my property journey…..now I am actually looking into my first commercial conversion, had a sudden bullish drive and sense of belief that I can do this”Peter Walmsley,Property Investor
“Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for a great 3 days. Learned a great deal, met some great people and the whole experience was excellent”Harvey Raybould,Property Investor
“What an inspiration. George and his team gave lots of useful and practical information, as well as the confidence boost I needed to start me on my developing journey. Since the course I have made an offer on a large development. I wouldn’t have done that before the course”Rick Player, Property Investor
“I’ve learnt more about commercial property in these three days than I had in all my years on the planet!”Stephen Lawn, Property Investor and Business Owner
“The Commercial To Residential Conversion Masterclass course was excellent. Having covered the best ways to finance commercial conversion deals, gone through George’s previous deals and worked through some practical examples and ways to get as much out of a property as possible I felt ready to take my property investing to the next level.”Kathryn Palmer,Property Investor
