Our company’s journey has been equally as impressive. Originally selling property around the world in places as far flung as Turkey, Thailand and the USA, our growth coincided with a shift in focus to the UK market.
Entering into joint-venture partnerships with premier developers including X1, Forshaw Land & Property Group and Fortis Group, we have been at the forefront of the boom in Purpose-Built Student Accommodation.
Following that, we were a pioneer of modern private rented residential accommodation in cities across the North including Manchester, Salford, Liverpool, Sheffield and Leeds – the UK’s outstanding property investment markets.
At the same time as expanding our product offering, we at Knight Knox also diversified our services by creating a range of sister companies to cover every aspect of the property investment lifecycle.
StudentPodShop was the UK’s first dedicated site for student accommodation investments; Intus Lettings was created to let and manage properties on behalf of investors, and now operates nationwide with multiple offices; and Intus Residential was created to facilitate the sale of properties between investors.
The latter was re-branded as yieldit in 2018 and has been going from strength to strength ever since. Focussed on the sale of tenanted apartments – thereby eliminating void periods for the seller and generating instant income for the buyer – yieldit has filled a niche in the market and proven extremely attractive to investors.
Following the creation of yieldit, we founded Qualis Developments, our own in house developer. Construction is ongoing on two developments – in MediaCityUK and Sheffield – and further growth is anticipated in the coming years.
Martin Copeland, managing director here at Knight Knox, said of the landmark anniversary: “We have had a fantastic 15 years and are extremely proud of all we have accomplished so far.
“The UK property investment market has grown tremendously over that time and we are pleased to have played a leading role. The future is bright, and we can’t wait to see what the next 15 years holds for Knight Knox.”
