I love the property industry. I have spent my nearly 20 year career marketing and selling second homes and buy to let property…I know, I don’t look old enough!
For 14 years I worked directly for an off-plan holiday-home developer in the Algarve, Portugal. I am still fascinated by peoples desire to buy second homes: a holiday home in Portugal was not just selling bricks and mortar, but selling a dream, a lifestyle – a home-away-from-home. A buy to let property is a-head-not-a-heart-buy and again not just about the bricks and mortar, but owning a valuable asset that will provide annual income.
On my return from Portugal in 2013 I joined REW. I was impressed with the clever investment model that UK developers had created between themselves and the investor, and also the products that were available within the different property sectors.
I love the diverse concept of what we do at REW, and our thorough approach to due diligence with our REW Property Check. Finding the best UK products for our portfolio can be a challenge in itself – it took us two years to find a Loan Note product that we thought was suitable. After the hard work though, there is nothing more enjoyale than releasing a really well put together investment project that our clients are going to feel comfortable and excited about investing it.
