Lease Option Property Experts Mark Jackson and Wendy Patton – About Us

Mark Jackson – UK Lease Option Expert and Educator

Mark Jackson Property Lease Options ExpertMark Jackson is a prolific lease option expert and property investor, educator and author. Having enjoyed outstanding success in the UK using property lease options he founded Lease Options Made Simple with Wendy Patton, the leading US lease option property expert.

Let’s invite Mark to share a little about his story:

My Love of Property Investing – Before Lease Options

“I fell in love with property at the tender age of seven. It was then my parents bought our first family home in green and beautiful Wales, which we renovated and later sold. When I was 14, we bought a heavily wooded plot of land and lived in a caravan for two years as we built our family home from scratch. The whole experience taught me some important lessons about life, including the truth that, over time, property can be a great way to invest and create wealth.

After ten years of voluntary work in poorer countries, I was determined to become financially independent after returning to the UK. My dream of investing in property had never left me and so I set about learning how to acquire a portfolio of investment property without money. You see, at that time, I had no credit history and no cash.

Lease Options and My Investing Journey

In 2006 we completed a purchase of the tiny flat we were renting in North Yorkshire with the help of a property option. Following that success I started investing in property using lease options with other investors and home-owners. The problem-solving power of property lease options fascinated me. I loved structuring property options and negotiating fair contracts. It was a fantastic way of solving problems for motivated sellers, and create income. Lease options and lease option property had liberated me from being stuck in a rut and years of struggle trying to make ends meet. Now I no longer need to work, but do want to share that success.

Creating Lease Options Made Simple – Two Property Option Experts

It was in 2009 that interest in lease options property investing in the UK increased dramatically and Wendy Patton and I started to discuss the possibility of us working together. Her rich investing experience and her refreshing, transparent and ethical approach to the whole question of lease option property investing appealed to me. We created Lease Options Made Simple and thoroughly enjoy working together, helping other property investors succeed with UK lease options.”

Wendy Patton – US Property Lease Option Expert and Trainer

Wendy Patton - Lease Options TrainerWendy Patton started investing in property when she was just 21 years old. Like most young adults she was single, broke, thinking “corporate America” was her only future. Wendy graduated from college, was hired for that corporate America “dream job”, but was $20,000 in debt. She found property investing and realized that Corporate America wasn’t the golden path to what she wanted. When Wendy began investing in property, she didn’t fully understand her financing options, so she started buying investment properties using her credit cards.

Let’s invite Wendy to share the rest of her story:

“At that time I didn’t know of any better way to invest. I didn’t have the assistance or availability of coaches and instructors. I wish I knew then, what I know now about investing in property and creative seller financing.

By the time I was in my early twenties, I had more than $200,000 on my credit cards! I then got married, had twins and found myself to be a single mother, all within a short time span. Over the next few years I accumulated more properties while working full-time in the corporate world. Imagine how happy my young twins were to be able to view hundreds of properties with me…

I needed to make a living, and make it fast to pay off the credit card debt I had accumulated. I came to specialize in creative seller financing techniques like: lease options, subject to deals, land contracts and seller financing. Why these techniques? Because like many of you, I didn’t have the money or the credit I needed to buy in a conventional way.  Now, with the lending industry the way that it is, many property investors can’t buy property without using advanced strategies. These techniques are crucial for today’s property investor.

I enjoy teaching and sharing with audiences all over the US, and recently in the UK, and have taught tens of thousands on how to invest in property with little or no money out of their pocket. Investing in property is my passion, and I love helping others to achieve financial freedom through property.”

Wendy Patton has been in HGTV “My House is Worth What?”, and is the author of four property lease option books in the US and co-author of one in the UK, Lease Options Made Simple. These clearly teach how to succeed with advanced buying strategies such as property lease options.

    Your stories are inspirational yet so different. I was recommended to this site by a friend you both know very well and I am glad I took the time to look through. I have never thought about investing in property but I am at a point in my life where I want the financial freedom to give up teaching now and spend more time with loved ones. Perhaps lease options may provide my answer.

    Best wishes
