About me

I am a young and healthy well driven man with a very strong appetite for business. I currently own and run a lettings and management company in the Northwest of England. Very recently I have  become the author of "yourlocalpropertyblog.co.uk" My ethos in work is to deliver more than is expected and that customer satisfaction is a large part of my growing success. Operating a business is my passion and I constantly look for ways to adapt, over come and better my end game in all aspects of business. I have a fiance who also shares my passion and excitement in the world of business.  I am keen to make connections to expand the business for a sustainable growth.

I am a very keen Golfer and regularly attend the local gold club with friends  I have a fond passion for quality food wine and cheese along with aged cigars.

Work History

Work History
2012 - Present

Property Developer

Magnus Estates

Whilst operating as a North sea Diver i would self teach mysef reading books on property development, Successful business men and women, Self help and business development which in turn led me to purchasing my first investment property in between my trips offshore. I then new I wanted to be in business for myself and operate a self sustainable property portfolio. I gradually bought more property selling on for a profit but also retaining some for my portfolio after development. I have led construction teams to renovations and conversions and have a presence in the student market place with my property as well as the commercial sector. 

2015 - Present

Director / NFOPP Lettings agent

Magnus lettings & Management Ltd

As the director of the Lettings business i am 100% dedicated to my role and have great passion in what I do. The result of opening the business was due to a lack of quality service from other letting agent when managing my investment property when i worked offshore. I knew i could do a better job. The business is run on trust, honesty and affordable products. Day to day operations consist of advertising property for landlords and finding tenants for that property. The management of the property is a large aspect and a key component when keeping the investment operational and positive. Our portfolio is growing steadily due to excellent customer service.  We assist on all property acquisitions on behalf of our clients and run full renovation schemes on their behalf. I have employed a apprentice as i feel they do not get enough opportunity and i feel that i can add value and help people within this sector but also the community and beyond.
