David Wilson agree to sponsor schools for 2011

I had a great meeting this week with David Wilson Homes and came away feeling even more excited about 2011 if that is possible!! We secured sponsoship to our schools in 2011 and have offers on 5 of their show homes all with fantastic discounts and leaseback options. So we know we are going to be able to offer properties which deliver both large discount and also really high rental yields for our clients in the New Year. We also have access to their national catalogue so we can offer locations to suit the needs of our clients.

This wraps up a whirlwind final quarter for 2010 and it feels like my feet havent touched the ground.

January is already destined to be a major month for Midas with a full appointment book, new website and branding launch, 4 schools and national PR campaign already in the diary.

From all the team at Midas we wish everyone a fabulous Christmas and a Happy New Year.

David Wilson South West of England Deal with Midas Property School

Today was another milestone for Midas Property School - I had a meeting today with David Wilson Homes who were so impressed with our model that not only were they prepared to offer discounts to our clients in all of their sites across the South West but also would like to discuss sponsoring all of our Property Schools and host a school at every champagne launch of a new site.

This would be great news for our clients as we would have a wider range of stock to offer them, which along with Persimmon and Taylor Wimpey, who we already deal with, would mean we would be a trully national company with wide reaching access to all investable regions in the country.

We would also now have a sponsor with national credibility which enhances the Midas brand and gives added kudos for our standing in the property arena.

Finally David Wilson Homes will be discussing adding a link to the Midas website from their national website.

We will be meeting again on the 21st December to go over the fine details.

We are now really excited about what 2011 will bring when we host many more schools around the country.

Mark Regan and Lee Johnson tell us about Midas Estates

We love having our ambassadors Mark Regan and Lee Johnson on board with Midas for obvious reasons - and we asked them for their thoughts on how Midas works for them and why it appealed to them in the first place.

In particular they both shared the experience of being given the hard sell by businesses from all angles and having to be aware of the motives of those who approach them.

Mark started by giving us his story

and then Lee Johnson from Bristol City Football Club told us of his views.

If you know any sports person who is thinking about investing then please share this Blog post with them and ask them to give us a call.

Schools in Taunton and Wells a sell out success

We were delighted to hold two more Property Schools in the south west this week on Monday and Tuesday in Taunton and Wells and again we had some great feedback so thank you to those that came - the venues were both full - so thanks to Alister Betts for marketing the event.

Here is a taster of one of our schools - this was in Bristol recently

We'd love to hear from anyone who would like to attend one of our schools or if someone has got some general questions about property investment then we welcome their call for some free advice.

For instance we often get landlords contact us for a review or to take over the management of their portfolios because they want to give the stress to someone else. That is what Midas is all about - letting people get on with their lives while we get on with getting your money working hard for you.

Here is a brief testimonial from Bill Eaton who came to our Bristol school

We are now looking forward to planning for the new year where we have schools lined up for January and February for Cheltenham, Plymouth, Cardiff, Exeter, Bristol and Coventry.
