I got on extremely well with Rob. He doesn’t have an excess of ego which I found very refreshing. He was always genuine and certainly always honest and ethical. I have come across and have seen many property education and mentors online – as I’m sure you have – and I’m always unimpressed by the “look at me” approach so many of them seem to have….
With any mentoring or self improvement, you get out what you put in. Rob didn’t do any of the work for me – and neither would I expect him to, but it was almost like he had my back. I felt that there was a safety net. If I wasn’t sure, I could ask. If I didn’t know what other potential options were available, I could ask. It’s good to have a clear goal and it may change, but very important to know what you are trying to achieve.
I don’t think I had any potentially “costly mistake” scenarios, but I have on many occasions taken advice offered by Rob to do things in a more cost effective way. I had a lease issue with one property and he worked really hard trying to avoid paying the charges I was faced with.
I remember being concerned by group mentoring. But actually it’s better than one 2 one. You can earn from what other people are doing – you can also get the benefit of other peoples’ life experience. Rob will always give you his honest opinion for the best way HE thinks something can work. I may offer you a different opinion. We are different people, who think differently and have had different experiences in life. It would be for you to decide what you think is the best way to go.
There is an unspoken (and sometimes spoken) rule about not nicking someone else’s deal. There are also strong morals and ethics within this process and between mentors and mentees and mentees and other mentees. You will only gain from sharing your info, learning, experience and knowledge.
Never had any issue here. If he was busy he would call me back.
I have no hesitation recommending him. I would like to give a 10/10, but who ever gives that?! 9.8? He’s honest (not everyone is) and he is genuine. He is also very well connected in the Southampton area which could be extremely beneficial to you.
He needs a better coffee machine in his office – but he knows this!
