Mentoring with Dan
Mentoring With Dan
UrbanShared was created by Dan Jackson in November 2016 with a mission to change the shared home market in South West London. We acquired our first deal in February 2017 and by the end of 2017 had acquired a further 8 properties. We now have a portfolio of over nearly 100 units with an annual rent roll of over £1.2m.
Dan runs the portfolio without any full-time staff.

Why Mentoring with Dan works
I started UrbanShared in 2016 and in that time have been totally immersed in running and growing the business.
Whilst I love mentoring and helping people, I love building this business. Not only is it a profitable business, it's also changing lives and I'm so excited by what the future holds for UrbanShared.
"If you are so good at building the business, why don't you just concentrate on that?" - I love helping / mentoring people. It's fun and satisfying. I create partnerships through mentoring and yes, I also get paid for doing something that I enjoy and find super fulfilling.
I strongly believe that the shared-home market needs some attention. Standards are still poor, housemates don't get the love and attention they deserve. In short, the rental industry, and particularly the multi-let market has been neglected for decades.
I want to change that. And I can't do it on my own!!

CoLiving with YPN
UrbanShared were invited to a round table on coLiving hosted by the popular property magazine YPN - we started with "What is coliving" and it went from there! A must read for all those interested in this growing market sector
With CoLiving Code
Christine McDannell is almost single handedly pushing the coliving agenda.
In this video we discussed in detail what coliving means and why it's different in the US when compared to the UK market.
