Wednesday 20 July 2016
Local business owners Carl Hemming and Sandy Ameer-Beg have teamed up for a live-broadcast using the new Facebook Live facility at 8pm this evening.
The Property Forum aimed at answering property and mortgage questions is the first in a series to be broadcast from ginger’s Balsall Common HQ, where questions will be taken simultaneously via Twitter.
The live broadcast is the brainchild of ginger’s Carl Hemming, the Balsall Common Estate Agent and Property Consultant. He was keen to find a way to answer people’s question regarding buying and selling property in a dynamic and convenient way:
“It’s at 8pm, which for most people gives them time to settle down and get comfortable at the end of a busy day and be able to ask questions from the comfort of their own sofa. At ginger we’re huge advocates of using technology to make life easier for our customers and the obvious next step for us was to extend on that to help a wider audience.”
National award-winning Mortgage Consultant and Balsall Common resident Sandy Ameer-Beg will be Carl’s first special guest and will be on hand to cast an expert eye over any associated mortgage and finance related queries.
How to join the Property Forum
To join this evening’s session you can either go to ginger’s Facebook page to view proceedings there, or you can follow the session’s questions and updates by following #gingerhour on Twitter.
