Born and bred a sun-loving South African, Neil obtained his degree in Town and Regional Planning from
the North-West University in Potchefstroom. After university, he joined property development analysts Urban-Econ, and later Demacon Market Studies, working on major retail and property development projects in South Africa and abroad.
In 2008 Neil emigrated to the not-so-sunny England to continue his career as a town planner, doing consultancy work for various London authorities as well as private property developers.
Neil started his journey in the financial world when he joined mortgage brokerage Andrew Charles Consulting in 2013 and trained to become a mortgage advisor due to his love of property and, more particularly, the world of finance. Thereafter he moved to Trinity Financial for a short stint, which led him to his current role at London Private Wealth, and his permanent home.
Neil is passionate about helping his clients achieve their goals. Whether it’s to buy their dream home or to develop a BTL portfolio to secure their future, he takes a keen interest in and genuinely cares about the people he works with. His career ambitions are to become an independent financial advisor, which will allow him to advise his clients on their total portfolio of planning needs.
When he is not helping people buy their dream home Neil enjoys the smell of a freshly mown lawn, followed by a cold beer and as much meat as possible on the BBQ. He is also a property investor himself and undertakes personally many of the renovations and DIY projects in those properties.
