Following a recent meeting with some first time buyer clients, who are currently looking for a property, i received an e-mail from them. As I composed my reply, i thought that maybe my thoughts might be worth sharing with a wider audience. Here’s a slightly edited version of my reply, which obviously has names removed…. Read more »

I really love this time of year. We’ve enjoyed the first few days of sunshine, watched as nature has sprung in to bloom, and the light is lasting longer. There’s a real sense of anticipation, and I’ve been looking at options, and making plans for the fun summer months. Just a few highlights that I’m… Read more »

From Formula 1 to formula, and sports car to caravan.

There are some moments and milestones in life that give cause for reflection, and recently two of those seem to have converged. It seems like only yesterday that my first son arrived, but in September he’ll be starting school!! I remember starting the business like it was only last week, yet in reality next month… Read more »

You could be forgiven for thinking that current housing market news is all about Brexit, and the possible impact of the referendum result in the short to medium term.

As I type, I have to confess that following yesterday evenings on-track fun & games, this morning I’m feeling some aches and pains!

What’s in a number?
