Meet The Team

Rich Nicholls

Richard Nicholls

Director

Richard has worked in property sales since he was 18.

In recent years Richard has moved back into residential investment property brokering which is where most of his experience, knowledge and industry reputation lies.

With a work history in residential sales, owning a small family estate agent, providing estate agency and ‘sourcing’ training nationwide and working with hundreds of vendors, landlords and property investors, Richard has amassed a vast array of skills to allow The Property Advantage to grow and flourish in a tough market.

Day-to-day, Richard is at the front end of the business valuing and assessing new stock and preparing the properties for our qualified investors – in fact, most of our properties come from Richard’s network of trusted landlords and vendors who have either used us before to sell or have had a recommendation from a peer.

You’ll often find Richard (and his big ginger beard) talking all things property on his popular Facebook page.
