About Me

My name is Doug Parker and I hope to pro­vide you with the infor­ma­tion you are likely to need to begin your ven­ture into prop­erty spec­u­la­tion. I hold a BSc (Hons) in Prop­erty Man­age­ment from The Uni­ver­sity of Read­ing (acknowl­edged as being one of very finest insti­tu­tions for property-related stud­ies in the world). I also hold a Post-Grad Diploma covering Construction Law, Development Appraisal and Acquisition/Disposal of Land and Real Estate.  I am a Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (MRICS)  I  am a Com­mer­cial Sur­veyor, work­ing with cor­po­rate clients to nego­ti­ate the best terms avail­able to them and plans that fit in with their busi­nesses.

It’s taken me a few years to learn what I know about prop­erty.   How­ever, it will not take you as long as that.  I fil­ter out all the super­flu­ous infor­ma­tion, to allow you to absorb only what you will need.

Many peo­ple under­stand that prop­erty invest­ment and devel­op­ment is a very shrewd way of mak­ing money. How­ever, mis­takes can be expen­sive and this pre­vents many peo­ple from get­ting started. There are a lot of peo­ple who sim­ply do not know where to start.

That’s where ’The Prop­erty Spec­u­la­tor’ comes in!

I am con­fi­dent that if pri­vate prop­erty investors and devel­opers run their ven­tures with the same approach as the pro­fes­sion­als, they stand a far higher chance of being successful.
