From Paris to Palmers Green, Pamela Strain's recent renovation project in Palmers Green is a great example of how first time buyers can make a profit from property.
Born in Northern Ireland and having worked in Paris for many years Pamela, an executive assistant at a private bank, relocated to London in 2014. Initially renting in Palmers Green Pam purchased her first home through Anthony Webb estate agents in December 2014. A spacious two double bedroom flat in a 1960's block ideally located for transport routes and local shops. Within four months of completion Pam had completely renovated her apartment, bringing the old parquet flooring back to its original glory and blending contemporary design with the generous space offered by the purpose built development.
Pamela said of the renovation project
"Buying my first home was daunting, I fell in love with the flat instantly and the space it offered. With the guidance of the team at Anthony Webb, and my dream team of builders I could not be happier in my new home. There's a great feeling about being on the property ladder, sitting on my balcony at sunset with a glass of wine, a clear view of the Shard, toasting my new future in London”
