G'day guys, I'm an old Somersoft member, joined there in 2002 and been inactive for quite a while. I remember the early days ... I'd be on the site every day, hungry for info and advice, which I got in abundance. My accountant, back then Dale, came from the forum as did the broker I used for a refinance 3 years ago. I've already noticed a few familiar names here, so I expect PropertyChat to be aspiring to the same level of exelence. I live in Japan in a small city south of Osaka, I teach English and farm ... just finished the rice harvest today in fact. The extent of my prperty experince is buying a property and developing my PPOR, what made these a bit different was that I did both from Japan, by remote. I sometimes wonder if I'll ever get another project up and running. Perhaps I'll become inspired again. Can't promise that I'll be popping in all that often, but I'll do my best.
