Today (8th March 2023) is International Women’s Day, and at Sourced we want to celebrate all the amazing success that our female franchisees have had!

The dedication and determination that our female franchisees show every day is truly a testament to their love of all things property, and we are extremely proud of their achievements, and we can’t wait to continue to help them grow their incredible property businesses.

Vanessa Lloyd

Vanessa joined Sourced with her partner, neither of whom had any prior knowledge of the property industry.

Their interest in property was piqued when they attended several networking events and decided that they wanted to build their own successful property business.

In Vanessa’s first couple of months as a franchisee, she and her partner sourced their first project; a 6-bed HMO conversion.

Utilising Sourced Capital’s funding platform to finance the project, the property was fully stripped out, converted, and refitted to bring it to a high standard, targeting professional tenants.

Melissa Kay

Melissa decided to join her Dad, Jason, and become a Sourced franchisee. The dad and daughter duo quickly started to grow their property portfolio and, as they did so, Melissa began to easily identify potential property leads.

Recently, Jason and Melissa have had an offer accepted on 2 deals: a vacant shop and a flat.

This comes off the back of putting the finishing touches on a stunning conversion project of a commercial property into a 13 flats residential development in Hull.

Jennifer and Stephanie Davies

Sisters, Jennifer and Stephanie are the most recent additions to the Sourced Franchise family to appear on this list.

Already, they have managed to fly through multiple viewings and have made an incredible four offers on properties in a single week.

They have both recently quit their day jobs to commit full-time to fulfil their passion in property with Sourced.

Sandra George

During lockdown, Sandra made a huge decision to leave her job at the university and turn her passion for property into a business. Her goal was to home educate her son, so she was looking for a business opportunity that would allow her to work from home, while being part of a team.

After looking at several franchise opportunities, Sourced was the one to stand out. “From all the options I looked at, Sourced is the most switched on, in terms of the level of support and the training”.

Sandra used Sourced Capital to help with funding on her first flip project. The plan was to convert a three-bed property into a four-bed and benefit from the value uplift. Sandra further increased the profitability of her property business by trading deals that she found by advertising them through the Sourced Property App and earning herself a finder’s fee on each property lead she sold.

Nicola Hargreaves

Nicola was always passionate about property, and in 2011 she decided to take her first steps into the industry. After completing a flip, Nicola wanted to turn her hobby into a full-time career and grow her property portfolio.

After a little searching, Nicola decided to join Sourced. “Sourced allowed me to grow, expand my business and knowledge, showed me different property strategies and access to funding”, Nicola says.

The most recently funded project by Nicola, our Ayrshire franchisee, is the conversion of a former police station into a 4-bedroom home, located in Auchinleck, Scotland. £141,500 was funded through Sourced Capital, to help with the purchase price and work costs. Upon completion, the new family home will be sold on the open market to generate an estimated profit margin of 27%.

Julie Rodriguez

Through the Sourced Property App, Julie has sold many leads over her time here at Sourced. Utilising lead generation and earning a finder’s fee is just the beginning of Julie’s property career.

She has recently set up her own property networking event in Hampshire along with another franchisee, Laura.

Donna Whelan

Donna joined Sourced with her partner, and after completing their induction and several of our online training courses, they were quickly jumping at the chance to build their property business.

Donna and her partner, Mark Whelan, have completed several deals whilst at Sourced. Their most recent deal was the development of two luxury new-build residential properties in Cuddy Hill, Preston.

Using our own funding platform, Sourced Capital, both properties are set to be substantial in size with high-end fittings. Plot one, which is 5,300 square feet in size, will also feature an indoor swimming pool.

Hannah Lilley

Hannah, who was recently awarded ‘The Most Consistent’ award here at Sourced, sold a deal as soon as she started – an unbelievable achievement!

After setting up a Facebook campaign she has recently just received over 30 leads in just 2 days, an excellent way for Hannah to continue to grow her property business.


These are just a selection of success from just a few of our female franchisees, there are many, many more!

At Sourced we’re firm believers in the fact that success can be best attained by having a diverse network, and we’re incredibly proud of all the achievements that all of our franchisees have accomplished.
