I first started my career in Estate Agency as a Trainee Negotiator for a large Corporate firm in 1993 and have been involved in the property industry ever since. Having grown up locally in Shedfield, I jumped at the opportunity to open a branch in Bishops Waltham for an Independent Estate Agent and progressed on to open Bishops in 2008. At the time of opening Bishops I decide to diversify the business by offering a lettings service which was not a main stream facility offered locally. From there, Bishops has continued to go from strength to strength. Away from the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife Tracey and our 3 children, coaching football, playing football, and the odd visit to the cinema if we get the time.
In 1984 I joined an old long established family firm of estate agents in Bitterne, Southampton as my very first job. In time that company joined a large, well thought of Corporate organization which offered great training and progression. To his end I eventually ended up running the branch that I started at as a trainee fifteen years later! I then went to live and work in the French Alps and after returning to the UK I was incredibly lucky to be able to join Bishops Estate Agents as a director. Some eight years later we have all grown the business to what it is today and I am proud to have been able to have helped many people fulfill their dreams and aspirations. In my spare time I participate in an Amateur Dramatics group, Scuba Dive, Snowboard [when I get the chance!] walking the dogs with my wife and I love films but also have a soft spot for old obscure TV series.
I started my working career at Marconi in Titchfield at the age of 16 and progressed on to a senior management role within the company dealing with many large contracts and customers such as Boeing, Airbus and Rolls Royce. I have always been involved with Bishops from day one and left the Aviation industry after having our twins and joined our business on a full-time basis in 2010. My role has grown considerably of the years as Bishops has continued to expand. From a day to day point of view, I am responsible for ensuring that the company runs smoothly, as well dealing with all the accounts for the business and ensuring that the management of our rental portfolio runs as seamlessly. When I am not at work, I am generally running around looking after mine & Ben’s three children, I enjoy shopping, taking Diggy for walks and relaxing when possible.
I first started my career working part time as a weekend sales advisor for a large corporate company back in 1993 in the Portchester area. From there I increased my hours to a full time role working in both the sales and lettings markets, across several locations including Hedge End, Park gate and lee on the solent. I now work full time for Bishops in a lettings role, which can be challenging at times but I do enjoy the diversity that the role brings. Away from the office I am a proud parent of two grown up girls, and enjoy visits to the gym, DIY and socializing with friends.
My career started with a corporate company in an exclusively residential sales environment situated in the Meon valley. My career with Bishops started three years ago, after they sold my house! Here I bring my 10 years of industry experience to both the sales and lettings markets. Working part time allows me to balance my passion for property whilst still allowing me to spend time with my young family. When I’m not at work I enjoy walks with my family and our terrier, food and reading.
Having 2 years experience in Estate Agency, Diggy is both extremely enthusiastic and conscientious. Having started her career in Bespoke Kennels, she is now relishing the development of our new Kennels Lettings department. In her spare time she enjoys playing fetch with a ball and chasing cats.
