The Real Estate Journey Of Lawton Hopwood

Lawton Hopwood, a real estate agent, thrives in real estate after overcoming a malady and finding his true calling.

Pandemic brought chaos into the lives of millions globally. While it was a very disheartening time for the world, many people found their calling and turned their life around by trodding on the path of hard work and determination. And this turned the unfortunate onset of a pandemic into a start of a new life. This is also the story of Lawton Hopwood who emerged from £0 to £20,000 in a short time of year by following his heart and never backing down in the face of adversities.

During the pandemic, Lawton lost his job due to the trundling economic changes all over the world. In a situation, where most people would find it difficult to stay afloat, Lawton buckled up to reform his current life into the dream life he always imagined it to be. He took the plunge and dived deep into the real estate world and today he is the proud owner of Hopwood Homes Group. He helps people find high investment return properties, and find the luxury buildings which the clients turned into their homes with memories.

From Redundancy To A Business Owner

Lawton had been with a global construction company for 4 years, and it had helped him sustain his life and career. He was able to support his family, live in a great home, and drive a private vehicle. However, the spirit of entrepreneurship always kept summoning him. Even when he was in high school and saved money from bus fare that he was offered by his mother, he used the saved money to buy Lucozade from the store and sell it at school. He was truly an entrepreneur at heart and this was his real talent always.

Learning And Moving Forward

When Lawton got laid off from his job through a Zoom meeting in the pandemic, he decided to not let it affect him and signed on to the Samuel Leeds 365 training. He had been a viewer of Samuel Leeds before June and knew that property development is the direction that he wants to follow now.

He took on his online training and decided to create his own firm which provides top-notch real estate services to people. He had been working in the construction realm for over 7 years and knew that this is the right direction to be headed.

Success With Hard Work

Within the first week, Lawton triumphed in deal sourcing and earned £11,000, raised £75,000 to buy a property to renovate and sell, and secured a land development deal to build 6 houses worth £2.2 million.

Hence, he has achieved unfathomable success with his love for property development, and the spark to keep learning and evolving. His journey is an inspiration for many, who were hit by the fangs of the pandemic. They just have to look around with concentration, and after some determined toil, everything aligns to lead you to the path of success. To know more, visit his Instagram profile.
