We believe in building Property Portfolios that grow year after year.

You know you need to be out in the market searching for deals, finding tenants and getting strategic because that’s where the money is.

But you’re procrastinating because you’re not sure if your money could be working harder, or if the property you’ve found will return close to the targets you need in order to keep recycling your money. 


Now Imagine You Had a Trained Team of Professionals on Your Side 

Now imagine if you had a trained professional on your side…

  • Working on your goals.
  • Finding properties that achieve the figures you need.
  • Negotiating with the ideal tenant to fill the property or renegotiating on leases to increase the value of your asset. 

All the while keeping a firm grip on your strategy so that your properties are always increasing in value and being there to support you whenever you have a question or you’re worried about the next steps.



Asset Management by NC Real Estate  

The 1:1 service tailored to your property investment goals.

Here’s what we do…


You’ve seen the guru’s out there professing to teach you how to do it yourself with wild results that leave you suspect that it could be a scam. You’ve also seen the massive property portfolios (think pension funds / REITS) who have Fund Managers with 6-figure salaries overseeing the building blocks…

This service is different. It’s done for you, not a course and certainly doesn’t come at a 6-figure price tag.


You will work with a Chartered Surveyor who will:

Work with you to develop an acquisition strategy

Support you in searching for properties as per the acquisition strategy  

Undertake deal analysis and identify the best tenants and/or lease terms for your goals

Negotiate on deals to get you the best  possible price 

Work with your lender, solicitor and any other instructed professionals to bring the deal to completion

Asset Manage your properties throughout your hold period, so advise on strategy in terms of lease renewals, rent reviews, service charge and constantly to monitoring the strength of your portfolio and improve where necessary 


With Our Asset Management Service

We do the heavy lifting and take the pressure off, so that you can invest in property knowing full well you are being looked after and have a team working for you day after day. 

Here’s what’s included in this Service…

Setting Portfolio Goals

The over arching aims of the portfolio are decided including number of properties to acquire and in what time frame as well as the targets that need to be hit for each property.

Acquisition Strategy

We put together an acquisition strategy that hits the portfolio goals, including search area and type / size of property

The Property Search

Team NC Real Estate will enter into a property search, we will also guide you on how you can search for properties to and guide you in the right direction


The Deal Analysis

  • Once a deal has been found, we make sure the deal works and de-risk it as much as reasonably possible prior to making an offer.
  • The process includes analysing rent for best and worst case scenarios and then identifying a number of tenants who would be interested. Using this data we can determine what price we need to offer at and whether the property will work.
  • If we believe this deal could work we will advise you on why we think the deal works and where we think we should offer.

Offering on a Deal

Team NC Real Estate will negotiate on the property in order to achieve the best price possible for you

Pre-Completion Phase

  • Once the offer is accepted Team NC Real Estate will work with the solicitor and the mortgage broker to make sure the deal goes through
  • Team NC Real Estate will work during this time to de-risk the deal and add any value that can be added before completing on the deal. This includes any lease regearing, finding tenants in house or where it’s deemed necessary working with local agents, to get new tenants in and on the best lease terms possible to increase the value of the property (Please note professional fees for local agents will be an additional cost and will be included within any deal analysis). 
  • Team NC Real Estate will make sure that you have all of the necessary documents to manage the property going forward.
  • Team NC Real Estate will also advise on any service charge handover where necessary to make sure there is a smooth transaction on completion.

On Going Asset Management

  • Team NC Real Estate will work on any additional leasing strategies where necessary to continue to improve the value of the property
  • Team NCRE will be available to advise you on any issues you are having with the management of the property
  • Team NC Real Estate will advise you when value add opportunities arise and will put together a strategy and implement so that each property’s values are maximised throughout the hold period

Natasha Collins MRICS - Property Investment Mastery

Natasha Collins MRICS 

CEO / Founder 

I’m a chartered surveyor, property investor, University Lecturer and have been in the property industry for over 12 years and have worked with over £600 million of property. 

Throughout my career I’ve worked with huge landlords to create growth and value add in their portfolios. I’ve doubled property prices from £4.5 million to £9 million just through a simple reletting and lease re gearing strategy.  

I’ve re-geared 25 leases to provide an additional £125 million worth of value on a development site, through changing the leases to shorter term so that vacant possession could be obtained quickly. 

I’ve found off market property opportunities just by talking to neighbours and then reduced purchase prices by 30%. 

I’ve done big things for big landlords, however I realised smaller landlords didn’t even know that this was accessible for them. at a price point that you can afford, whilst giving that multi-million pound portfolio service. 

Which is why I launched NC Real Estates’ Asset Management Service. 

Services involve helping you find and acquire new commercial and mixed use properties. Finding appropriate tenants. De-risking properties before you even buy them. This service is bespoke to you and your property portfolio.

Asset Management is Perfect for you if:

  • You’re aiming to create five figures and more from your property portfolio per month
  • You have £100,000 of capital or more to invest in your property portfolio
  • You’ve already built a small portfolio of 5 or more properties (this could be any type of property)
  • You already know what target yields you want to hit and know what your ideal return on investment would be
  • You have the time to view properties OR you are willing to pay for a building surveyor to go and inspect properties on your behalf once we determine if it hits your goals
  • You are focused and patient, buying commercial and mixed-use property takes time
  • You will be transparent with your current portfolio so that we can also work on this to maximise its value


You owe it to yourself to build a property portfolio that works for YOU.

Yes, we live in uncertain times. But you can still create an income from property investment in the short term… and a great retirement pot in the long term and Commercial Property is oh so the perfect way to fill your SASS pension.

Don’t let another year go by… looking back and wishing you’d made property investment work last year, because the market was in your favour.

Take the time to complete the application process and start to explore exactly what your property portfolio can do for you.
