From the UK, I took a sabbatical from my Real Estate job in Bedfordshire 10 years ago and have resided in Phuket for the last 8 years, working in the Phuket real estate industry for the past 6 years. I truly love Phuket.
It offers a wonderful lifestyle with everything imaginable on offer and when you do want to get away they are hundreds of options from a short distance flight to the hustle and bustle of one of the several cosmopolitan cities located less than an hour and 30 minutes away, or a long distance direct flight to the Middle East, Europe or Australia to name a few. A 20 minute speed boat will get you to one of the still sleepy islands located around the Andaman. I am still amazed at the diversity and beauty on my door step which I can enjoy at the weekend, which thousands of people from all around the world fly here to experience just once or twice in a lifetime if they are lucky.
I have a diverse range of clients, from those with large portfolios of investment properties making them fabulous returns to those who simply want advice on a holiday home in Phuket, where I go the extra mile and help manage their properties while they are away.
