Mr Sami came to Choices in August 2013 with £100,000 to invest.

In September and October 2013, we worked with Mr Sami to reserve three units. One was a tenanted flat in Carshalton, close to Croydon and two were off plan apartments in Ashford, Kent with an initial investment of £80,000 for the properties.
