Partners in Property Birmingham

1st Friday of the month

PIP Birmingham...The Place To Be

The original event, celebrating its seventh birthday in 2024. PiP Birmingham is home to some fabulous community members and two incredible hosts! Some of the friendliest and most experienced property people in the biz, the brummies are a great bunch and a warm welcome is assured at PiP Birmingham.

Fun fact – although PiP Birmingham is the place where some of the most prolific property traders, portfolio builders and property industry thought leaders come to network, you would never know, until you got to know them – the Brummies are an exceptional yet humble bunch!

Meet Your Hosts

The hosts of our Birmingham event are the brilliant Raj Sharma & Richard Lloyd, both very experienced investors & business owners.

Raj Sharma – ex Chartered Accountant, grew up around family businesses and has been running his own design and print company since 2003. Started a property business in 2018 to create a second source of income and a family legacy. Specialism is sourcing,  designing, developing and self managing small HMOs for professional tenants.

Richard is a full time property developer. The core of his portfolio is HMOs in Bristol which he self manages. Currently he also has a new-build JV project and separately an apart-hotel under construction in the north west. He enjoys the personal and business connections made through property.

A Real Community

PIP’s mission is simple… to build a genuine community of property investors, who are there to help and support each other with ZERO UPSELL… Those who get it, get it and we know that we are not the community for everyone, only those who share PIP’s values.

The Silhilians Sports and Social Centre in Copt Heath, near Solihull, is home to PiP Birmingham’s community day, every 1st Friday of the month. This lovely spacious building, which is centrally located and just off the M42, is a favourite of the Birmingham members – it’s the place where the whole community began and is within easy reach of members from Birmingham, the Midlands and an easy commute for those members travelling from other parts of the country too. This is a community with strong bonds and close ties and monthly events often spill into impromptu drinks, as the day’s networking continues into early evening for our Birmingham PiP members!
