Lyndsey Smith – What do I know?

February 18, 2010Article by Ray Withers

As one of the smaller cogs in the PF machine, I can state that I am not a consultant, nor do I deal with actively sourcing and researching our projects or provide the diligent and substantial after-sales care that is tended to our clients. As a result, I am the member of the team that knows the least about property and the markets!

However, something that I do know and which PF constantly teaches me is the importance of confidence. Having survived one of the most turbulent years in economic history, the start of this New Year has been met with great anticipation by us – a new year, a new decade, and a host of new opportunities constantly emerging before us.

Our first launch of the year was an exclusive opportunity in student accommodation in Liverpool that we relished taking on and the results have been fantastic. All statistics aside, I can tell you the office has been positively buzzing!

Responses have been detailed, thorough and intelligent, not to mention rapid! Phones have been continuously ringing since launch day with highly interested clients keen to learn more about Beacon Building, and we have seen many new enquirers through word of mouth and email circulation from existing contacts.

Enquiries have not just been from home soil but on a global scale, ranging from USA, France, South Africa, Singapore and Switzerland while several extra hours were worked by many of the team when Australia awoke to read our news of Beacon Building. Within 3 days of launching, all units had been blocked and a waiting list has been created should anyone have to cancel.

I reiterate, my knowledge of the markets is limited, but even I can tell from the response we have seen to Beacon Building that confidence is most certainly out there and on the rise amongst investors who have been just as keen to kick start the New Year as we have!

As a team we are hugely excited about the months ahead and continue to endeavour to source opportunities far and wide that will maintain such a buzz!

First stop Liverpool, next stop Orlando – bring it on!
