Sheila Holt recognises she is both an outlier and a disrupter and is fascinated by how people think. Sheila developed a coaching practice utilising NLP; helping her clients reach clarity, focus and success. During this time Sheila was also actively investing in property. The big lesson she learned from building a sizable portfolio was that; in the property industry money needs to flow.
In 2007 she loaned some of her own money to a property developer and recognising a need in the market, this was the first step to becoming what is now Sapphire Lending.
Sapphire Lending brokers deals between Lenders and Borrowers. Lenders are people who have money sitting in their bank account and want to make it work for them. Borrowers are accomplished property developers who wish to borrow money to top up bank lending for a specific property development. Sapphire Lending broker the deals and make the process simple. There is an ease of working with Sapphire Lending which brings a lightness and brightness to the often over-complicated and yet serious business of finance.
The business has evolved and grown over the years and she’s in a very fortunate position of having attracted a great team, strong advisors and good systems.
Sheila holds a post-graduate degree in Careers Counselling and an MA in research and education. Sheila revels in being an entrepreneur and sees it as one of the greatest personal development journeys you can go on.
