In January 2000 I visited Bournemouth for the first time for a tennis match. In the clubhouse there was a copy of the local property paper which I glanced at out of interest. To my amazement I found an apartment for sale for just £8,000! I was convinced it was a typing error but decided to enquire regardless.

There was no error and the property was located in a popular residential road close to the town centre and railway station. I immediately agreed to purchase the property and still laugh to this day as the property had been left to a cat’s home and they insisted on seeing proof of funding. I still have their request letter and my reply, which I have framed!

I paid for the flat with my ‘American Express’ card and this was the first purchase of 60 properties that year. With the assistance of lenders, I purchased as many properties that I could before prices started to rise. At the height I had a total portfolio of 497 properties.

I decided to open an office to manage the portfolio and the first office was opened on the 13th February 2002 at 716 Christchurch Road, Boscombe which I also redeveloped and extended to provide four apartments above. I was asked to manage many friends and colleagues properties as well as providing a service and invaluable advice to other prospective investors and landlords.

Lovetts have grown substantially since then and now have 5 offices that cover the entire BH postcode of Dorset/Hampshire. All our Sales Managers have been personally head hunted with many years’ experience and initially worked as my shadow for a minimum of three months. It is important to me that my company is represented by experienced and knowledgeable staff that provides the customer service that I would expect.
