Lisa Brown

Nurse turned property developer, after encountering problems developing property for supported living she set out on a mission to understand supported living property.

Discovering why property investors and providers struggle; educating people, raising awareness and working on solutions

Lisa trained as a nurse and always planned to be a nurse.  Her 23 year nursing career was spent in various settings including the Emergency Department, where she worked her way up to Senior Sister and Emergency Nurse Practitioner in a busy East London A&E and as a Health Visitor.  She loved the diversity of nursing roles and has seen the direct impact that quality of housing, or lack of housing, has on people’s health and wellbeing.

Lisa has always had a passion for property; her sister jokes that she was looking in estate agents’ windows from a very early age! Moving to Devon she struggled to get part time work around her children and so she set up Pebble Properties and went about breathing new life into tired buildings. A chance encounter led her to discover supported living and she loved combining her nursing skills with her property knowledge to develop property for an adult with complex needs. However, as a property investor she found many frustrations with supported living and that there was little reliable information available. 

Lisa set about discovering why property investors struggle to let their properties to supported living providers and why providers struggle to find property to let. She has been educating people, raising awareness and working on solutions to this problem ever since. Lisa is the host of the Supported Living Property Podcast and YouTube channel and is the founder of Supported Living Property Network.

At 18 Lisa spent twelve months teaching English in a government school in Thailand and ran a summer school in a refugee camp on the Burma border. Lisa was a school governor for five years. She has been a trustee of the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust since 2013 and has supported families with visually impaired children, advocating to help them access education services

Lisa lives in South Devon with her teenage boys, dogs, cats and chickens. When Lisa is not discussing supported living property she can be found attempting to tame her garden, trying to learn to sail or swimming in the sea all year round.
