Today on the EmpowerHER Global Podcast, I’ll be talking with myself Lena Benjamin, Property Search Consultant and Project Manager at Benjamin Property Services, where we source off-market, below market value and financially distressed properties in London and Kent to transform them into income generating assets for company directors, family offices and corporate executives. I have over 10 years of real estate experience as a residential landlord project managing refurbishments, real estate agent and client management for multimillion pound buildings and infrastructure key clients at a global multidisciplinary engineering consultancy firm.
Over 10 years of experience in the real estate world but over 20 years of multidisciplinary experience involving strategic marketing and business development for global corporations, SMEs and startups including my own, charities, high-end retail, residential real estate and eCommerce. The depth of experience within the service-based environment has been a real asset to understanding people and their behaviour. That is important in any business. To dig deep and find out the motivations and whether or not you can actually help. Too many people just say they can help so that they can bill for a service but for me if there is not a win-win-win then it doesn’t feel quite right.
At Benjamin Property Services I try to delve into the experiences I have had in the property field to uncover viable wealth creation property strategies. My recent podcast at benjaminpropertyservices.co.uk/podcast explains the financial opportunity of converting commercial to residential real estate for one thing there is no higher stamp duty.
I’m also organising a number of events and webinars to touch base with wealth and legacy builders in the UK and around the world. Details of which can be found at benjaminpropertyservices.co.uk/events or propertybusinessclub.eventbrite.co.uk. There are a number of exciting and interesting real estate topics including commercial to residential, PropTech and building information modelling for medium and large scale real estate projects. It would be great to see you in person in London at the next event. As mentioned our client focus is on national and international company directors, family offices and corporate executives eager to build a new or existing property portfolio in the London and Kent areas.
For those that are based in London like myself you will see that there are a number of construction projects going on including Crossrail 1 which opens as the Elizabeth line in December 2019. For the savvy investor this will be a huge opportunity for long-term investors developing commercial, residential and mixed-used projects in the surrounding areas we’d like to support you in the sourcing of those real estate projects, we can project manage refurbishments and developments with other property professionals.
Well it has been lovely sharing my real estate journey with you, why not visit the website on benjaminpropertyservices.co.uk. How we work is to understand your property strategy via a scheduled call or through the completion of a property brief, we charge a commitment fee of £1,000 which is refunded on the first negotiated property purchase with a 1.5% commission. I can explain it all over a telephone call on 020 7097 8834 or send an email to [email protected].
