Clare Monkley - Transition into Retirement Through Property Investing

Meet Clare Monkley, a successful property investor with her own mortgage broker business called 'Love Finance', who spends her time maintaining the properties currently in her portfolio and assisting owner occupiers and investors to purchase property.
