Hello everyone,   Thanks for coming by to have a look at this new website.  It is sadly not finished and I am working on it when I have time.  You will know from earlier posts (they are coming) that I am not so tech savvy and so this is incredibly painful for me. I want to upload my properties, sold properties and the archive of newsletters I have and it will come…soon…ish. Thanks for your patience!!
