My heart and soul goes into my work and my property sourcing company is no different. I have a passion for all things property and monitoring the property market has always been of great interest - owning a Property Sourcing company is the perfect business for me. As well as project managing many BRR deals, I’ve managed lots of staff and met thousands of clients and customers face to face. Excellent customer service is something I pride myself on and undertaking a clients brief is something I take very seriously; their needs and their wants, and how making them feel at ease and confident in the process is imperative to the success of my business. My goals are to develop good relationships with likeminded property investors and to further expand Cross Property Sourcing Ltd.


Over the Over the last 18 years I have also been running my property development company - Cross Design Developments Ltd -  where as well as buying and selling properties, I have owned and operated a pub, a guesthouse, rented out buy to lets and provided serviced accommodation to thousands of guests.


I'm a self-driven, hard working, conscientious person and a perfectionist by nature. I am also detail orientated and have a love of design having studied both Interior Design and Architectural Technology at college and University. I'm also a dedicated Dad and husband. My family is everything to me and I love being able to take my girls to school, and to gymnastics, as well as watching Newcastle Utd with my son. I mountain climb with my wife and arrange trips away with friends. I frequently go to the gym and have a love of healthy food; I love sports, reading, meditating, travelling and music, and regularly go to the Glastonbury festival.

My Story

Over 25 years ago I started out studying Interiors and architectural technologies at college and university. This taught me the principles of aesthetics, form and function together with the practicalities of designing a building from the foundations up. This was followed by 5 years in employment as an interior designer based in Newcastle for Ultimate Leisure Plc; here I helped design over 50 pubs, nightclubs, and hotels from Newcastle to Belfast. I have invested in varying property strategies over my career but mainly in South Shields, Tyne and Wear - my home town. South Shields is a hotbed for all property strategies as we are a seaside town attracting tourists with award winning blue flag beaches and restaurants, a Roman fort and a college housing over 11,000 students. These facets allowed me to exercise multiple investment strategies included BRR (Buy-refurbish-refinance), SA (Serviced accommodation), Buy-to-let and HMO (House of multiple occupation). I began buying and selling properties around 2004 before acquiring a pub which I refurbished and operated, developing 9 hotel rooms with ensuite above the licensed premises. I ran this concern successfully for 10 years before selling in 2015. I then bought and managed a 4-star guesthouse which I recently converted to a licenced HMO. What often sets my projects apart are my high standards, my eye for detail and an understanding of how a buildings form should meet function. I now source and package property deals to investors and my personal portfolio currently consists of HMO and SA properties, (which can be seen by clicking the links on the bottom of the home page). 


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
