Simon Zutshi is a financially independent, professional property investor, with over a decade of experience investing in residential property in the UK and overseas. Simon started investing in 1995, when as a first time buyer, and a recent graduate in debt, he found a strategy to purchase his first property (his home) using none of his own money. By renting out the spare rooms he was able to cover the mortgage payments and effectively live for free! Caught by the property bug, Simon started to buy more property and by the age of 32 he was financially independent due to the passive income generated from his property portfolio. Since an early age, Simon has been interested in the art of magic. He started to perform professionally at the age of 15 and became a member of the World Famous Magic Circle in his early 20s. Simon has often said that investing in property draws many parallels with magic, in that once you know the secret, what seemed impossible before, is simple to achieve. As with any magic trick, knowing the secret is not always enough, and, in order to become truly successful, you must practice and apply your knowledge with skill. In 2003 Simon founded the property investors network to provide a supportive environment for investors to learn more about investing with the aim of maximising their return and minimising the risks. Simon now spends most of his time helping and educating other investors by sharing his hands on experience gained during his many years as a successful investor. He is one of the few property speakers in the UK who is a member of the Professional Speakers Association. As such, Simon is regularly invited to share his residential property investing strategies at the large property exhibitions and entrepreneurial business conferences around the UK and around the World. In April 2007 Simon launched his Property Mastermind Programme, which is designed for investors who want to add an extra GBP 1million to their property portfolio and an income of GBP 50,000 in just 12 months. With a money back guarantee, and a limited number of delegates on each programme, it is no surprise that the first Mastermind programme sold out in less than two hours. Each year there are two programmes, one starting in April and the other in October.

Every year I am fortunate enough to be asked to speak at property and wealth events all over the world. As can be expected, the knowledge and successes of the promoters and speakers varies tremendously from event to event. I met Simon Zutshi in October 2008 when I was the guest speaker at his Property Magic LiveA" a weekend seminar in London. Not only was the organisation and production first class, but I was struck by Simon's knowledge of the subject, his willingness to share, and his passion for property in general. The event truly was magical. Simon made this possible by surrounding himself with a great team and great participants. In essence, that is what Property Magic is all about - creating a great team. Property investing can be a lonely pursuit if you are doing it on your own. However, it does not have to be that way. This book explains how to surround yourself with a power team and how to find people who can help you achieve your property investment goals. By leveraging other people's time, money and experience you can build a solid property portfolio much more quickly and easily than doing so on your own. Simon is an experienced, successful investor. More importantly for you however, he is a great mentor and teacher. In this book he simplifies property investing concepts and clearly explains the steps you need to take. This book gives you all the information you need to ethically buy property well below market value from motivated sellers. Having personally met many of the Property Mastermind delegates whom, with Simon's guidance, have taken action and achieved incredible results, I know that if you study and adopt these principles, you too can achieve great success. It does not matter what is happening to the economy in general, or the property market in particular; now is always a good time to invest in property. This book shows you how to educate yourself, conduct adequate research, buy for the long term, negotiate an advantageous price, generate positive cash flow from day one, and buy in an area with strong rental demand. All that is left to do is take action. Successful investing, Dolf de Roos Phoenix, Arizona www.dolfderoos.com Author of the New York Times and international best seller Real Estate Riches.
