Bought first do-er-upper in 1996. Many moves later the current project is Moregeous HQ, or Moregeous Mansions as it’s known on Instagram. I have worked on hundreds of properties over the course of my career in property, not only for myself, but also for private clients, landlords, developers and on several TV shows. No-one ever knows everything, but I know more than most 😉
