About Katana Group

Katana Group is a privately-owned property investment and development company with a portfolio focusing on Northwest England. We pinpoint the best deals and breathe life back into those properties by turning them into stylish, high-quality products. While making a katana sword, the master craftsman stays awake for days and nights to tend the furnace that produces a masterpiece.

We, at Katana Group, approach property investments with the same persistence and concentration that the master craftsman applies to the katana sword. The katana sword was the samurai’s most important tool, just as our unique algorithm will be to your property journey.

Whether you are a first time or experienced investor, we ensure that you are presented with investment opportunities that are designed to help you invest in property strategically, securely and profitably.

Grant Robe

Best thing has to be the goal setting system (there’s a system for everything!). The number of viewings needed per month to reach our income goal for the year seemed like so much work. But now, to even smash our target for the year we only need to do around 10 viewings per week! Thank you once again Richard.

Sam Bailey

Systems are fantastic, which has changed the way we do our business; one aspect of your system makes me ask how I managed before! My confidence since working together has developed and changed, which has really helped me in my business. The support since we worked together has been second to none and I really appreciate all of your help.
