Property Platinum Partners converts a non-believer into a successful franchisee and franchise mentor.

When Mike Dixon decided to accompany his wife to a National Franchise Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham back in 2007, he had no intention of falling into the trappings of becoming a believer. Mike had reached a point in his life where he had enjoyed successful careers in computer games, finance and sports broadcasting industries but after a failed business venture, he had been left dry and sour.

Out of desperation, we attended the National Franchise Exhibition, but I really didnt expect to find anything, said Mike. To me, franchising was a very good, proven model for franchisors and for most franchisees but not necessarily for me as I saw it as buying a job where everything was very prescriptive. But then I came across Platinum Property Partners.

It was there, at the Platinum Property Partners stand where Mike and Carol heard the magic words that changed their pre-conceived notions of property investors forever. Mike said: Here I was having my pre-conceived notions of property investors being a bunch of sharks confirmed to me! However, after a bit of harmless banter, we were introduced to Steve Bolton who calmly told us that he was about to give a presentation on stand. If we liked what we heard then we could have a chat, but if we didnt, then not to worry. At last, someone that wasnt trying to ram it down our throats so we stayed.

Mike went from non-believer to believer in no time and by 2008 he had built his portfolio of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) in Gloucester and Cheltenham. Platinum Property Partners business model proved to be so robust, the financial crisis did not affect his property business and today, the successful franchisee couple manages a profitable portfolio of eight properties and additional income streams including mentoring other Franchise Partners in their network. Mike adds: Helping people gives me the biggest buzz. I love meeting new people and shaping the mentoring to suit their needs. It also means Im staying active in the market and keeping on top of changes in localised property markets.
