Mr Nick Statman claim(ed?)s to be an expert in the property industry and in March 2012 on LinkedIn described himself as a successful entrepreneur. Well, nearly three years later we have a string of business and investment failures including Whitehall Franchise Ltd , Prop Buy Ltd, Kingsbridge and Carter with Mr Oliver Barber, failed online property auction site Opanet Ltd, Gateway Holdings (UK) Ltd …. and probably more.

So what part of the industry, besides being an expert in ripping off franchisees and the unsuspecting public in property purchases, is Mr Nick Statman an expert and successful property entrepreneur? He has failed in –

  1. Online Property Auctions
  2. Lettings Agency and Property Management
  3. Property and Financial Investment Portfolios
  4. Franchising his Property Purchasing (BMV) Companies
  5. Online Estate Agency (incl franchising)

Not much success there then …. However, we do hope the saviour of Roost Mr Simon Bland of SB Living is fully aware of what he is getting himself into.
