Neil WardNeil started his career in the british army, but achieved huge success with his dating seminar business that he launched during his last 2 years of service.

Biggest Success

Neil’s 3rd or 4th rent to rent deal last year involved trying to negotiate with a landlord who was so strict that Neil thought there was no chance of ever getting to an agreement as things kept going back and forwards.

Finally the landlord agreed to do the deal and followed it up by sayin ‘as long as this one goes well, you can have the rest as well’. Completely out of the blue, the landlord indicated that he had around 35 other properties that he was going to give to Neil on a rent to rent basis as well!

Biggest Difficulty

Whilst changing the boiler in the kitchen of one of his rent to rent properties, the plumber’s blow torch set fire to the tissue paper that had been used to pad the kitchen walls around 40 years ago. The whole kitchen went up in flames, and when they grabbed the fire extinguisher, it had no pressure!

Luckily the fire brigade were there within minutes and got the fire put out, and Neil and his team were able to strip out the kitchen and rebuild it all within 3 and a half days.

As well as teaching him to put checks in place for things like fire extinguishers, it also showed him the power of having a strong team around him as there was no way he could have got it turned around so quickly over a weekend without the trades he had developed good relationships with.
