The Property Graduate


The show for aspirational property developers and investors.


Whether you have experience in property developing or not, Property Graduate is open to everybody who thinks they can become The Property Graduate 2022.

The prize itself is forming a property company with well know property developer and investor John Howard, with the winner being given 50% of the shares.


John, will make up-to £1million available to the company to purchase a property and the winner of Property Graduate 2022 will have 12 months in which to find a project for that company to invest in.

The Property Graduate will receive 50% share of the profit and potentially have a John as a business partner for life.


It’s not a job offer, there is no salary involved and John would always recommend that the Property Graduate should keep their current  job and look for deals at the same time.

The process of becoming the Property Graduate 2022 is a 3 part process:


1) The Interviews
2) The Challenge
3) The Deal

In order to choose the Property Graduate 2022, John is going to be abley assisted by two fantastic women who have vast experience in property and finance.


Helen Chorley who graduated from Oxford University and then went into the city. She advises and also uses her own funds to invest in property developments across the UK.  Participants won’t want to get their costing wrong because Helen won’t.


Then there is Fiona Talbot who has been a property developer for many years. She has vast experience in the industry and has a reputation for a no nonsense approach which means every entrant needs to come with their A game.


Last but not least it is important to say that it’s not necessarily going to be the person with the most property experience that wins The Property Graduate 2022. It may well be someone with no property experience but has lots of potential in the eyes of Helen, Fiona and John.

The show will be filmed on the 3rd May, 16th May & 31st May at a location close to the London and near the M25
