Jackies’ idea for a Property Purchase ‘One Stop Shop’ came when she personally struggled to purchase UK investment property whilst based in the Middle East for 13 years. Even with over thirty years’ experience in Investment Financial services including as a Mortgage Broker and property investor and in addition to arranging Investments for clients internationally, Jackie still found difficulties in moving through the vendor-centric property market from overseas. Jackie can guide you through the process and has the experience to deal with any challenge you may face. Whether she has experienced the issue first hand, or found a solution for one of her clients, she is confident she can help you.
