Tayo is a fully qualified mortgage advisor, and co-founder of the blog BrickzWithTipz, which has reached over a hundred thousand people in need of advice. With his experience he is well placed to consider the cost of living crisis, understanding and improving credit scores and property investments.


An experienced Mortgage Broker, Property Expert, Investor, and Influencer, Tayo Oguntonade uses his expertise to break down complex and relevant property topics. He is a presenter on The Great House Giveaway on Channel 4, which won best daytime programme at the BAFTAs, RTS and Broadcast Awards. Tayo was also nominated for best debut presenter at the Edinburgh Television Festival.

Tayo joined the presenting team on the Channel 4 show Key to a Fortune, which re-unites families with homes, and relatives they didn’t know they had. He also offers his advice on Steph’s Packed Lunch, Rip Off Britain, Watchdog, BBC News, and Morning Live.

Having always had an interest in finance, and after studying economics in university, Tayo was determined to find the best way to invest as he began his career. He took a liking to property but noticed there were barriers including myths, scaremongering, and lack of knowledge when it came to getting on the property ladder. Tayo discovered he could invest in property and utilise his interest in finance by studying to become a qualified mortgage broker which allowed him to buy his first property at twenty-two.

Since then, Tayo has dedicated his time and knowledge to help first time buyers and experienced investors achieve their goals within the property market. He was selected to be in the Top 25 Entrepreneurs to watch list, which is run by UK black Business week and sponsored by HSBC.

As a fully qualified mortgage advisor through the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), Tayo advises on areas including how to buy in today's market, investing in property for retirement, good debt vs bad debt, the ins and outs of buy to let mortgages, and investment strategies. He also holds a BA (Hons) in Economics from the University of Portsmouth, which gives him knowledge on how to climb the corporate ladder and how to communicate effectively in the workplace.

Tayo’s background and experience help him talk about working harder as an ethnic minority in the workplace, the wealth and property gap in the UK and the true impacts of gentrification.
