Are your buyers local or from further afield?
Strangely for an estate agent we have a loyal local fan base but we have many buyers from all across the UK registering.
What do you like most about your job?
We're built on a firm reputation for providing great service so when you hear that we have been recommended, you can't help but feel 'chuffed'. As corny as this will read, very few people get the opportunity to make people's dreams come true as we do as estate agents.
Have you ever had an unusual client?
I have worked for two clients with model railways in their gardens, sold a military watch tower, a converted chapel of rest and am currently selling the most amazing converted Georgian water tower.
What's the best piece of advice you've been given?
'Be yourself'. Although my sales progressor's 'Never marry a man who rides a unicycle' is also a good one.
How do you relax outside work?
I have two young boys so I don't get much time to relax, but I enjoy watching my team Man U and playing five-a-side with some of the guys from work.
What item could you not live without?
Sadly, my mobile, which keeps me up to date with everything going on across the branches on a minute by minute basis.
Who inspires you?
My boys – Sam and Cameron – and my staff. I'm lucky enough to have employed a real diverse group of individuals who have formed a brilliant team across my offices.
What's the most interesting property you've seen?
Surprisingly, after 22 years in the business, a house that I have recently placed for sale stands out, it's history being intertwined with both Charles I and Charles II
If you could be stuck in a lift with someone, who would it be?
Sir Alex Ferguson. If the lift were stuck for long enough we could chat about his wine collection and his racehorses.
What are your tips for success?
Work hard, trust your instincts and never be afraid to make difficult decisions. Always make sure you haven't got holes in the bottom of your socks.
