Property investment boutique Thorpe & Co has acquired a significant shareholding in fellow Salford business Mr Investa, an estate agency specalising in buy-to-let property.
The company will provide Mr Investa with finance and expertise, in addition to lettings and property management services.
Thorpe & Co’s managing director David Thorpe is a long-term business mentor of Mr Investa founder Ryan Hughes, with the pair growing up close by in Salford.
Thorpe said: “Ryan has been a friend of mine for many years and I have watched his career progress with great interest.
“Having admired his work ethic and knowledge of the buy-to-let market, the opportunity to join Mr Investa was frankly too good to miss.”
The partnership enables Mr Investa to help landlords find tenants as well as manage properties for them, providing investors with a complete hands-off experience.
Hughes said: “Having the support of David and Thorpe & Co is a real win for Mr Investa and our clients.
“Being able to offer its excellent lettings and property management service should prove instrumental in helping landlords maximise their investments.”
Mr Investa, which launched in February 2021, is a proptech startup specialising in buy-to-let landlords looking to buy and sell tenanted properties.
