They decided that they wanted to create beautiful homes for both the rental and resale market, somewhere they would also be happy to call home.
They set about looking for properties that they could refurbish to a high standard for their own portfolio. These were 'bread and butter' single buy to lets. Although this may not sound like the most appealing strategy to many people, there is a lot to be said for providing a beautiful end result and knowing how rewarding it is for families to move into great spaces.
Alison and Sean built a great relationship with local estate agents and were being offered more properties than they could purchase so they decided to create a company that could source properties for other investors. Over a relatively short period, this developed into a powerful team of financial, legal and refurbishment specialists who could offer truly hands-free investment opportunities to all their clients.
Alison Forsey, co-founder of Nest Wise said: "It's been a whirlwind start to the business and my feet haven't touched the ground! I am really looking forward to making this a family business and having our children on board would be amazing. I really would be thrilled if we could create a legacy that we can pass on to our children in years to come when we are ready to step down, for now I have to ensure I keep Sean in check with all the finance and admin work as he always leaves this until last!"
