I make money because I know the markets, I know the region, I know the best website to advertise my properties to let and I am in a position to pick up the bargains because I live here. Just because I make money, does not mean that you will also make a killing. You have to know what you are doing or you need the help of someone who does.

I make money doing what I do and I hate travel.
