Opportunities and vision of the company
What has been your favourite project and why?
Letting a vacant industrial estate called Quantum Business Park in Retford. They’ve not been the biggest or best deals I’ve done but It’s been the most rewarding as all the pre-marketing advice provided to the client has been correct and I’ve secured a generous income for the client and relieved her of repair and vacant business rates liabilities that were causing considerable worry. Happy client!

I don’t have one – but I admire any self-made business man or woman who started from the bottom
