Having lived in Surrey and Chessington for sixteen years, it has given me the scope and knowledge that can produce the results that are required to make Surrey Land & Property along side Chessington Relocations, good and reliable businesses.
I am happily settled with my partner Catherine. I have two lovely grown up girls who are making their dreams come true. My background has not been a life with a silver spoon in my mouth. I came from a broken home and forever moving from house to house because my parents couldn’t settle. One minute we are in London then the next we are all in Scotland. No wonder it was difficult staying friends with any one person. I became a shy introvert who liked his own company, and the only loyal friend I had, was my corgi.
When it came to deciding in Edinburgh what it was I wanted out of life from leaving school, I found that I hadn’t a clue. School was a slow learning place for me, as my attention was not on setting my goals because of the constant moving. The decision was made at 17 years of age, to go into the army. I wanted focus and direction and to learn new skills, to feel the pride and camaraderie from working as a team player . There was again moving around from place to place, but this was an adventure. I was doing things that some people could only dream about doing.
The discipline was the first part of journey. Then came the classroom work that I had to follow or I would have let my colleagues down when it came to applying that knowledge. I will always have fond memories of those 9 years spent as a young man.
I met during those years, my future wife. I was 20 years old when I got married. We had our lovely first born, Chantel. After some time, I decided that I did not want Chantel to be in the similar situation that I had been in with moving from school to school, so I left the service. Sadly the marriage didn’t last past 15 years. I’d made some foolish mistakes that are now something to reflect and learn from. We are still friends. I am now with Catherine, a great supportive woman who knows her own mind and helps me with my decisions. Catherine runs her own hypnotherapy business from home. We have been together for ten years now. Out of this relationship, I have given plenty of thought to striving to do better for myself and for those around me. Life is for living and giving.
I understand buyers needs and problems that many people face when it comes to making big decisions taking on a property purchase or let. My first property was purchased in 1982 aged 21years, for £21,000, whilst serving many years in the army. I didn’t even look at it before I bought it. I was very confident with my choice and the action that I took. I let it out with the same confidence as I did when I purchased it, using the confidence in myself and the confidence with the people I deal with. This is the same self belief that I am able to apply to you today.
I have built up a number of properties to my portfolio that have been a great achievement. Property is my passion and is the passion that drives me to succeed with everyone in my team, from my large network of professionals including funders, finance brokers, architects, builders, planning consultants, repossession specialists, private landlords and developers.
In recent years I have dedicated myself to learning all about the UK property industry and to applying myself to solving property puzzles. I am now well positioned to offer guidance, help and support to people with almost any property problem.Get Started Now
