But I understand what it is like to arrive in a new country, knowing no one, starting off with our last £50 in our pocket before I got my first week’s pay, living in an unfurnished house, sleeping on the floor…with 2 young children that needed placing in schools. Maybe I don’t understand. When I ask people in various 3rd-world countries, like the Philippines, if they receive : 1) Government welfare payments? 2) Free medical supplies? 3) Free health...

Click the Play icon to watch this short video. Start Small THINK BIG Case Study: Policarpio Street, Mandaluyong City, Manila, Philippines MANILA: Policarpio Street is home to around 30 families and all of them take Christmas lighting seriously, spending months to map out designs that make this small part of the capital of the Philippines a light show. Creating a Christmas wonderland – minus real snow, is a time-consuming job that starts in early August for some of the residents here. By December, their houses are decked out enough such that the neighbourhood has been christened “Christmas Town” by the Department of Tourism. The area also turns...

10 Years Later…Let’s Look Back At Our UK Beginnings

Posted by on Jan 24, 2013 in All, General | 0 comments

In late 2002 I was working with our London legal firm to develop the initial Instalment Contract documents that were subsequently reviewed by a barrister to make sure they were legally compliant. Next in 2003 I ventured out to start buying and selling houses using the same paperwork. With mortgages relatively easy to obtain for me in those days I bought the houses outright with a mortgage, but on-sold them to buyers who couldn’t get finance. Now, EXACTLY 10 years later, you can see that Rick Otton and I were doing things that preceded other others by several years. This is why the whole “property world” came knocking on our doorstep in 2008, as they...

My New Website Has Finally Arrived!

Posted by on Sep 2, 2011 in All, General | 0 comments

Over the last few months I have been busy getting my new website developed and making changes that have been put on the backburner! There are so many things to address when putting out something new. Content has to be created, there are an array of technical issues to consider and be advised on. For example, just addressing the video compatibility on all of the devices and software today is a nightmare. What’s the change? Well I’m broadening my horizons beyond just property. As we enter into this economic downturn that I have forewarned you of over the last few years when the banking system would fail, I feel that it is more important than ever to STOP...

Rick Otton interviews Nathan Baws

Posted by on Mar 20, 2011 in Student Successes | 0 comments

With only a few weeks remaining before Rick Otton’s Zero Debt Property Conference in London, here is a interview that Rick has done with Nathan Baws. Last year Nathan got prime marketing space when he appeared with his colleague walking down Kensington shopping district with large, ugly yellow sandwich boards from shoulders down to their feet! Yet, less than 2 years ago Nathan had never heard of lease options or the creative ways that he has learnt from Rick Otton when he attended his first bootcamp in the United Kingdom. Nathan will be coming back to the next London conference as a real inspiration to those looking to follow in Nathan’s footsteps. In fact,...

Long Stops, Exchange With Delayed Completions And Instalment Contracts

Posted by on Oct 31, 2010 in All, General | 0 comments

When you sell in the conventional way it is typically over a “short stop” period of 28 days or less. In the case of where someone is having their home built it is common to exchange contracts with a delayed completion until construction is completed, or a “long stop”. This short/long stop terminology is all legal talk and not what your everyday person would ever understand. Imagine the looks you would get from someone if you suggested we have a “short stop” or “long stop” completion date! It’s for this reason that I asked our solicitor at the time to remove such jargon from the paperwork. But what we were doing back...
