“One of my most interesting deals was when Gary recommended I purchase a fully let office block in Portsmouth as an investment. Having spotted a possible residential redevelopment angle, Gary negotiated surrenders of the leases and obtained significant reverse premiums from the tenants and subsequently sold the property to a developer at a significant profit. It was a cracking deal.”
Will Hurlock – Landene PLC
