Meet the Team at Kilnstone
Since the 1960s my family has had involvement within the business world. Through this heritage, I’ve always had a spark that’s driven me to want to provide a beneficial service to those who are in need of guidance, in order to achieve the results that they desire.
After working in many industries from cleaning, admin, and corporate banking, I decided I wanted to develop myself and put the skills I have to use. From this, I found my passion through property & shortly discovered that I could utilise my artistic and creative ability, alongside my savvy business, social and analytical skills whilst doing deals.
After understanding there are several streams of income in the property business and the potential it has to support others, I knew that it was for me. Time is the most valuable asset, buying properties gives you that time.
When asked “Why property?”, it’s simple – it’s about creating cash flow from rentals and having different strategies for increasing cash flow and understanding the power of leverage.
I began my first business venture in 2006 – JL Lettings, from this I was eventually able to manage a portfolio of properties in the first 2 years.
However, after the experience gained in my first business, I wanted to grow as it was truly clear to me how much there was available to offer in the property industry. There were many different services I wanted to provide, I found and understood the problems people had with their properties in order to add value to them by recognising all the options that are available to them.
From that, Kilnstone Property was founded in 2010. Kilnstone Property takes pride in assisting all clients on their property journey by being a forward-thinking firm providing full services.
The knowledge I have acquired over the past 17 years has led to me being able to recognise, pursue, and utilise the opportunities- therefore bringing together the right place, right time, and the right price.
Knowing the value of a great opportunity means knowing when it’s a good time to expand and grow your portfolio, whether it be in finance, property, or yourself. I am truly focused on building long-term business relationships for the advancement of future generations. I believe that visualising my intended audience has always allowed me to connect the relationship between all demographics and locations.
Outside of property, I engage with yoga and meditation as well as reading self-development books which have influenced my life in a Kaizen approach. I am also a family man and enjoy time with my wife and 3 kids.
As a Property Manager with years of experience in the industry, I understand the importance of maintaining and improving property’s value. I’m doing my best to be equipped and knowledgeable in areas of property management, from tenant relations to maintenance and repairs. I’m also great at problem solving and finding cost-effective solutions for every situation.
When it comes to Admin, I am proficient in customer service, problem-solving, and communication that is why I am confident that I can create an effective and streamlined operational system at Kilnstone Property.
And as a sales manager, with extensive experience in sales, I am confident that I can help Kilnstone Property reach its goals and I strongly believe that creative thinking of new strategies increases sales and customer satisfaction.
I am currently a Land Consultant for Kilnstone Property. I have built excellent relationships with a selection of small to medium size developers across the UK for who I now exclusively source land and commercial property for. During this time, I have also established relationships with a wide number of land and commercial agents as well as many land and commercial property owners helping them to market, then sell on their sites whilst maximising the amount they receive for the site by using my network of industry professionals to provide expert advice and add value at every stage of the development process.
