I’m a former Royal Marines Commando, serving a full 22 year career. Originally from a small village in Ayrshire in the South West of Scotland. I have now relocated to the South West of England with my wife, also a veteran of 15 years as a Nurse in the Royal Navy who grew up in Plymouth.
My time in the Marines was mostly spent based in Devon, so as an adopted Janner, we hoped to settle down in the Plymouth area. With great delight we managed to secure a dilapidated dormer bungalow by the river Tamar in the “gateway to Cornwall”, Saltash. It required a much needed full renovation both inside and out. We had a clear vision and goal to completely transform the property even with our non-existent experience of property restoration. It was certainly a very daunting but exciting prospect.
There were many low points throughout the project, but the sheer sense of accomplishment against some pretty sizable odds has sparked an interest in property. Which I have now decided to take into my second career, as I have made the decision to become self-employed as an associate of Keller Williams UK Estate Agents.
My new mission; To provide my clients with the same exacting standards I came to expect in my previous career whether you're selling or letting your property. To uphold the core values I held dear during my time in the Marines as I continue them unselfishly into the next chapter of my work and life.
