As an experienced Mortgage Broker, Property Expert, Blogger and Investor, Tayo regularly uses his expertise to break down complex and relevant property topics for the everyday person to understand. Tayo can be seen presenting BAFTA award-winning, The Great House Giveaway on Channel 4 which sees two people, who have never met and have never owned a home, given a lump sum to, with the help of Tayo, buy a property at auction. They then have six months to revive the property into a habitable and desirable home, with the aim to split any profits. If they don’t sell – the house goes back to auction.
Tayo can also be seen offering his expert advice on shows such as Steph’s Packed Lunch, Rip Off Britain, Watchdog and Morning Live.

Tayo has always had an interest in finance and after studying economics in university he was determined to find the best way to invest as he begins his career. Early on he took a liking to property, however he noticed there were barriers to entry when it came to getting on the property ladder. These barriers came in the form of myths, scaremongering and lack of knowledge and constant highlights of the problems within the UK property market without many solutions. Tayo found that he could align his desire to invest in property and his interest in finance by studying to become a qualified mortgage broker.
This brought him so much closer to the workings of the property market and allowed him to buy his first property at the ripe age of 22. Tayo applied a finance-minded approach to this purchase and rented out two of the rooms in his three-bedroom home to help him pay his mortgage. By following property trends and learning by experience he has gone from strength to strength and grown to become a successful property investor.
Since then, he has dedicated his time and knowledge to helping everyone from first time buyers to experienced investors goals within the property market. His vibrant, fun and charismatic style, brings a fresh face to an area that is currently dominated by a more rigid and regimented approach.
Tayo has a wide range of experience in helping people reach their property goals, travelling throughout the UK he has coached individuals and spoken at educational institutions, private corporations and charitable organisations.
Tayo is a fully qualified mortgage adviser through the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII). He also holds a BA (Hons) in Economics from the University of Portsmouth.
