Father and sons share property market insights Monday 4 December 2017 Alumni Naveen Ahmed and his sons Shaan (GSAL09) and Haaris (GSAL11) gave a fascinating insight into working for the family business and today’s challenging property market at The BusinessDesk.com Property Professionals lunch in Leeds. The father and sons were guest speakers at the lunchtime networking event, held at Bibis in Leeds. Naveen described how Parklane Properties has expanded in 40 years from letting student houses to setting up IconInc to provide luxury purpose-built student accommodation and Roomzzz aparthotels which are opening across the country. Shaan and Haaris shared their story of joining their father in Parklane Properties following university and how they launched UOWN, with the aim to democratise property investment for people who thought it would never be achievable. The property crowdfunding company was originally aimed at offering property investment opportunities to millennials, but is appealing to a much wider market.
