Firstly, welcome to my blog; I hope that you will find it useful and informative and that it will form the base of many interesting discussion points in what I have always found a remarkable and fascinating industry; the property market.
I was initially introducted to the property market through working for a Real Estate firm in London, Foxtons. Known for its innovative marketing and for being the largest agent in the area, it provided a fantastic education into the domestic property market, one that still provides a lot of interest for me today. I started off as a Negotiator in the Battersea office learning my trade in a particularly busy markt. I was then promoted directly to Lettings Manager of the Putney Office overseeing its expansion from just 6 members of staff to over 20. Overall it was a fantastic learning experience over many years and I always look back on this time fondly.
I have since moved into the world of International Real Estate with Atlas International, one of the largest and leading international companies in this sector. Atlas International has been in the industry for over 30 years and this experience has taught me a lot about markets all over Europe, the US and also Asia and has added a new dimension into my enthusiasm for the property market. I was employed into the role of UK Sales Manager and within a year had been promoted to head up the European sales operation. Again, like my time at Foxtons, it has been a fantastic learning experience which still teaches me something each and everyday.
All of this training has led me to wanting to share information and discuss finer points about the industry with people who have a similar interest and passion.
On a personal perspective I live about an hour south of London and am lucky enough to be married to the fantastic Jo and we are both fortunate to have a very happy and active son, Sebastian.
