Why Choose Us

Joe Robertson started Hidden Gem Investments after years of hard work, countless property experiences, and the desire to build on a passion for the industry.

Here’s why you should choose Hidden Gem to buy rental property UK. 


It has always been in the family – Joe’s father is a successful landlord and founded an estate agency in Manchester (Peter Anthony) since 1986  (now with 5 branches across Greater Manchester and Liverpool).


Joe said: “My Dad’s office, and his investments were a huge part of my upbringing. In my early teens I was regularly working weekends and school holidays for the maintenance division of the estate agency, contributing to the upgrade of hundreds of properties over the years.”

It was humble beginnings and one that gave Joe a real insight into different areas of property investment. 


As well as having RICS accredited degree in Building Surveying, Joe gained experience in Sales, Lettings, and Viewings – thus becoming educated in Landlord and Tenant Law. He has also conducted thousands of Deal Assessments on potential purchases, gained years’ experience working in Social Housing, Developed and Project Managed countless projects and is continuing to explore how Social and the Private Sector can increase collaboration.

Through his experience he has Design, Management and Investment Skills, worked on hundreds of Student Accommodation units, and has built up his own personal portfolio to include City Centre Apartments, Houses of Multiple -Occupation (HMOs), New-Builds and LHA.

“My idea to set up Hidden Gem Investments was mainly due to the identification of my ability to negotiate significant discounts on bulk purchases (helping to amass his family’s portfolio to exceed 300 properties). As hard as I looked, I couldn’t find investment companies negotiating  genuine bulk purchase prices and passing this on to their customers. Also, there is huge potential to unearth opportunities with Local Councils and Housing Associations that mutually benefit all parties. 


From a family of landlords and investors there’s little they haven’t seen. Hidden Gem aims to emulate this success for everyone who chooses to join them on their investment journey. We have a wealth of experience but understand the need to thoroughly research each potential investment, and make the right decisions based on data and insider knowledge.

“We live and breathe property investment. It should be exciting and enjoyable for all, which is why we want to help with not only inviting investors to find the best rental property UK investment for them, but assist with all the complex and often overlooked aspects that comes with it – legal work, finance, tax, purchase management , lettings management, furniture and disposals/re-sales.”

Joe and his team have a fresh approach to design, combined with a thorough understanding of location, end users, different use sectors; all factors that make a great investment. We have also built up a large bank of key contacts that are necessary for each and every stage of the process.

“We aim to encapsulate the feeling of investment in our process. It should be hassle-free, rewarding, and above all else a ‘Hidden Gem.”
