I personally have worked in financial services for over 15 years and throughout that time helped many people build their own portfolios. In 1998 I left to set up my own company Mortgage Desk. In the last full year before the credit crunch hit Mortgage-Desk were one of the Bank of Scotland’s “100 club” introducers – how times change!
In 2006 I set up Insurance Desk Services to offer Insurance Services to our growing bank of mortgage customers, today this insurance brokerage has continued to gain market share offer specialist advice around property owners and commercial insurance for small medium enterprises.
Its-Property was then set up in 2004 to help people capitalise in the opportunities in Scotland. I had by June 2010 purchased over 120 properties in the West Coast of Scotland for myself and investors with the average buy price of only £47,000 offering an 11% yield. Due to demand of work it made sense for me to employ my own team which has now been successfully running for few years.
I personally have been attending networking meetings for a number of years and firmly believe that property is a people business and it’s all about who you know. I love problem solving and helping people get the same satisfaction out of property investment as I do.
