Bought first do-er-upper in 1998. Many moves later the current project is Moregeous HQ, or Moregeous Mansions as it’s known on Instagram. Bought as a run down rental in the heart of studentsville, a large Edwardian property which has been transformed into a much loved home. Extended, taken back to brick, future proofed, fiddled with to within an inch of its life. Still no kitchen 😉
Bought first rental property in 2001. Owns and self manages 17 rental units. Extremely well looked after and affordable portfolio with high standards of interiors. Great relationship with all our tenants. Not your usual landlord.
Behind the scenes with Your Home Made Perfect but on screen experience with several other property series. Teamed with Manchester builder Jon Rebbeck to win three fabulous projects on BBC1’s Getting The Builders In. Presented Channel 5’s Half Built House, transforming the homes of four DIY disaster couples. Presented Channel M Manchester’s Homesmine. Known for going head to head with Sarah Beeny on Channel 4’s Property Ladder.
