"My investment journey began less than two years ago, at 43 years old, which is about 15 years later than I planned. Like many of us, I'd spent too long stuck in the rent trap.
I started this journey with Thalia Stanley Group (TSG) in which I’m very thankful. TSG founder Marion Mays took the time to understand my situation. Even though I only had a modest deposit saved Marion developed a plan of action that suited me perfectly too which we began immediately. Through their services, TSG helped secure me well-positioned land for an excellent price. They recommended trusted and tested finance and legal experts and within only a matter of weeks, I had secured the purchase.
Over the next 12 months, whilst I saved towards construction, Marion and the TSG team helped find me a reputable and high-quality builder, assisted with choosing the best design options and negotiating the building contract. The build went smoothly and 6 months later the property was completed and to an excellent standard. TSG put me in touch with a very professional property manager and my first investment property was leased without delay.
Marion and Thalia Stanley Group team have helped me build a trusted team of specialists in which I've felt well supported throughout. There is so much to learn about and consider in property investment and while I enjoy the detail it is impossible to become an expert in everything. Along with this journey, TSG has used their experience and contacts to recommend excellent specialists including finance, legal/conveyancing, independent building inspectors, property managers and even a well-priced quantity surveyor for depreciation schedules. TSG have taken the time to understand, mentor and consult and their experience and attention to every detail have all increased my confidence and expanded my vision and aspirations on this journey.
Most importantly the TSG philosophy is working. A few months ago, I could leverage the capital from the first property and have recently paid a deposit on property number two. Two properties in two years! With savings alone, this would have taken me at least 12-18 months longer, but the hard work TSG have done on my behalf has massively accelerated my progress. TSG helped me leverage my very modest initial deposit, by securing stock that required minimal stamp duty.
Now the good location, low negotiated price and high-quality build of the first property combined have provided significant capital uplift, enabling a deposit for a second property. TSG helped me develop a plan that suited my exact circumstances, was affordable and achievable. Their philosophy and methods have demonstrated a combination of knowledge, understanding, integrity, and success. I highly recommend you get in touch with Marion Mays and see what Thalia Stanley Group can do to assist with your financial goals too.”
