Who we are
DBS Property is an investment company based in Southampton and formed by myself, Giacomo Stevens,
after developing a passion for property and a realisation that my knowledge in the finance sector could work hand in hand.
Currently I am Operations Director at The Mortgage Hut, a nationwide mortgage broker with a strong commercial finance division. I have helped expand the business into one of the largest brokers in the South of England taking it from 5 employees to 40 in the last 3 years.
What we do
We source properties from local agents, who we have great relationships with, nationwide agents and auctions. We analyse each deal thoroughly before each purchase as we only source property that results in a great investment.
We project manage each development to ensure every project is delivered to its original scope whilst maximising returns. Effective property investment is not always about doing a huge development, it also about having a ability to spot the potential using the knowledge and expertise we have developed.
We love working with other people and offer a range of opportunities for investors to work with us while providing great returns.
One of our current investment properties can be found on Foundry Lane, Southampton. It was purchased for £165,000 with the intention of developing a HMO (house in multiple occupation). Unfortunately, planning was not granted and this now have been refurbished at a cost of £36,000 and is on the market for £249,000 We always ensure each investment has a plan B with just as much potential as plan A.
The long-term aim to give children a better start in life to help make the world a better place.
The long-term aim is to give children a better start in life to help make the world a better place. The aim of DBS property is to ensure 5% of all development profits and 20% of rental profit goes directly to help children across the world. We run a fundraising auction every year to buy presents for children spending Christmas in Southampton Hospital.
