In the middle of a career in Investment Banking Will began building his property portfolio in East London just after the financial crisis of 2008. He saw an opportunity with communal living and decided to focus on creating high quality spaces that young professionals would live in by choice rather than as a last resort. He oversees the purchase, development, reconfiguring and refurbishment of each property to meet the high standards of modern co-living.
In his spare time Will enjoys the entirely incompatible sports of whisky tasting and calisthenics. He’s spent the last few winters exploring South America and improving his Spanish skills.
Yusef studied business management in Egypt. After returning home he began his career working for a property deal sourcing company, securing high cashflowing property deals for investors. He later moved on to property management. In his free time Yusuf enjoys keeping fit and and is a regular in the gym. His other interests involve reading and exploring the fascinating regions of Northern Africa and the Mediterranean whilst also brushing up on his Arabic.

At Aboding she works with Will F on all property renovations and design. Day to day she oversees all tenancy administration, book keeping and business management.
In her spare time she enjoys travelling and property porn; anything from early Georgian to 1960s Brutalism. Weather allowing she is always happiest doing some yoga in the sunshine and getting stuck into a good book.
