Hi Rachelle I'm from Bristol and a Newbie too :-) I am still in the research phase (spending hours reading, listening to podcasts and pouring over statistics) but I wanted to find a broker who would help give me some indicators on mortgage products and costs. After a few blind alleys I found a guy called Paul Snook from Steve Mears Brokers in Clifton who was really helpful in answering my questions and quick to respond with a follow-up a few days later.

  7. Hello all. I just wanted to take a few paragraphs to say hi and introduce myself. In summary ... I'm a time rich, knowledge poor (very!) accidental owner of 2 rental properties. I've run my own small business for the last 20 years and qualified as an accountant a very long time ago. I'm right at the start of deciding whether a property investment business would be right for me and am just at the stage of understanding just how much I don't know! I found Property Hub through this learning process. I live in Bristol and the French Alps. If any of you has any usef
