He’s been ’up close and personal’ with his clients, their finances, and their property portfolios — varying from small to very large. In that time he’s been in the privileged position of observing the common elements of successful (and unsuccessful) investors.
From this advantaged viewpoint, Mark has been able to ’join-the-dots’ and identify the common elements of successful investing. Observing his clients, (and learning from his own investing experience) he’s gathered some surprising lessons about what works in property. He’s also seen what doesn’t work — sometimes spectacularly!
Mark has collected these thoughts together to create a ’roster’ of the 7 key elements of success in property. This high quality studio recording (one Audio CD approx. 50 minutes) will give you a chance to hear some of his conclusions perhaps adopt some of these strategies for yourself.
