BELOW MARKET VALUE RESIDENTIAL INVESTMENTS
I have been involved in business for over 30 years and having lost a business in the past I know how difficult it can be when you are faced with financial devastation. Losing a business or a home are some of the most stressful experiences anyone can experiene and having another person to help us through these times is invaluable.
New Life Corporation was formed in January 2003 to provide properties that were equipped to alleviate poverty distress and suffering for disadvantaged people. Having helped many people to secure a safe home environment we wanted to provide a total service to also assist anyone with money worries to find the best solution to help them break free from the downward spiral of debt.
We have met many people through our property business that were struggling financially, and have been able to help them by providing a safe home, and we want to go the extra mile and provide extra support if our tenants need it.
I have faced many circumstances in life which have been extremely difficult, devastating and could have easily finished me off if I had let them. However, being a stubborn male Geordie (a fellow from the North East of England) I have never let problems get the better of me and have always fought back when disaster has struck, which it has a number of times. These hard times have been the best for me and have brought me to where I am now. -
My main expertise is in property investment, development, project management and mentoring and I am a passionate believer that everyone deserves a good safe warm home to live in.
All of our business activities have a common theme and that is we are totally focussed in helping people to achieve greater things and overcome issues and problems. I am a great believer that no matter what problems we face in life there is always a person out there that could have the answer that we need. I love solving problems and helping people to achieve more than they ever thought possible.
If we always do what we have always done we will always get the same results. The truth is that if we always do what we have always done we will in fact get LESS THAN what we have always gotten because while we stand still, others could have overtaken us. We cant expect to keep doing the same things and achieve different results. Making small changes can have a huge impact on the results we experience. Don't be afraid of change it can lead to a very exciting life. Make a change today and don't be afraid. You will see amazing results.
I have been happily married to Helen for 14 years and we have two amazing boys - Joshua (11) and Luke (9). Helen is my anchor, my rudder, my best friend, my co director and my best and most honest critic (of course I always accept her comments and criticism with the best of attitudes!).
