Women of Property Do An Inventory Check on the South Coast

At 8 a.m. today, my friend, colleague & client Jane and I set out to visit our properties on the South Coast. Despite buying the first one in 2005, we had neither of us seen any of them.   We were able only to inspect from the outside in St Leonards on Sea, Worthing & Littlehampton and I am happy to report we found them somewhat more pleasing than we had expected.   We rounded the whole day off with a cracking lunch at the seafront East Beach Cafe. If you find yourself in the vicinity, make sure to have the Cherry Eaton Mess.  […]

Manifestation: Now I’m A Believer

I’ve been on all the courses, I’ve tapped (EFT) with the best IMHO – Ms Ann Ross.   She taught me and my crew how to apply it to health, wealth and happiness.   And it works.  Amongst our number were those (well, Janet Swift) who appeared to be able to do it effortlessly, whereas I always “needed” my success to come at the expense of some really, really hard work.   Now, don’t get me wrong, our Janet is far from a slacker, au contraire.   But she made manifestation look easy and I have been modelling myself on her easy manifestation successes […]

Anyone Can Do It! My Property Extravaganza Highlights

What am I most looking forward to on Saturday apart from catching up with 200 of my favourite people?   What are my anticipated highlights? Just one woman’s view but it might be useful if you are still sitting on the fence and are a last minute purchaser, still undecided? Anyone Can Do It, opening inspiration from my mate Peter Stanley. Handing over a HUGE cheque to those worth folks at The Big Issue, about which more tomorrow.   I am just loving the idea of a marriage between The Money Gym and TBI since they are so entrepreneurial in their approach […]

Money Gym Property Investors Hope To Raise £4,500 for The Big Issue

As part of my work with The Money Gym, I am working with our team to put on a Property Extravaganza on 21st March 2009 in Central London.

What Does A Night In A (Homeless) Hostel Cost?

Yesterday, Nicola and I interviewed Anthony North who is Head of Fundraising for The Big Issue Foundation. He moved us both to tears more than once, often with his own passion for his job! I know I wound up feeling I wanted to do even more to support The Big Issue than we are already doing. We expect to be able to donate around £4,500 on 21st March from our Property Extravaganza day and Nicola ended up emailing him after the interview offering to

My Top 10 Reasons for Investing in Property Right Now

A chap on Twitter asked me for my Top 10 Reasons for investing in property.   I have knocked out the following very quickly and twittered each one back to him!

These Women of Property are doing rather well…

Duncan's article features Hasmita Reardon, 45 year old former nurse and mother of three, who owns more than 80 properties in her home town of Sittingbourne, Kent, mostly let to tenants no other landlord will touch. I've just sent her an email asking her to come and speak for us on 21st March at our Property Extravaganza day as I am sure she will be very inspiring, especially since she specialises rehousing women on the run from violent husbands - now there's a niche!

Labour Plan Permanent Ban on 100% Mortgages and “Reckless Loans”

You'd think I would learn my lesson by now, wouldn't you? I should stop reading the bloody weekend papers... apparently I have been heard to look up from the financial section two weeks running and say, gloomily, "I dont think will ever get a mortgage again". Good job I've got six already then, and an even better job I know a way of buying property without getting a mortgage at all!
