%name Stuart Walton

With a degree in English and a career in writing, property has fascinated me since 1987 when I bought my first house, a very modest terraced home in Oldham for under £20,000. Writing for the property industry is my passion and specialism. I am the director of Get Pro Copy Ltd, a copywriting and social media service. This year, I formed 321 Websites in partnership. Property Blogs is a new content marketing service for the property industry.
