43 Cadogan Street
Senior Director, National Estates & Farm AgencyCountry Department
What are your key areas of responsibility at Strutt & Parker?
I am Head of Strutt & Parker’s Estate & Farm Agency Department based in our head office in Hill Street, Mayfair. I look after a team of dedicated agents stretching from Banchory in the North of Scotland down to Exeter in the South West and Canterbury in the South East of England as well as a head office team. I also work closely with our National Country House Department in Hill Street, particularly in the sale of larger country houses protected by land.
What is the best thing about your job?
I have two answers: our clients and the Estate & Farm Agency team at Strutt & Parker. We arrive in a client’s life at what is often a difficult time; during the sale of a property that may have been owned for many years. We pride ourselves in forming a very close relationship with clients, who often become friends. Secondly, the S&P Farm & Estate Agency team is second to none and we are market leaders in the field; it is a real pleasure to work with them.
What has been your proudest moment at Strutt & Parker?
Being elected to the equity at Strutt & Parker in 2007 and now having worked at the firm for nearly 25 years.
What do you love about the town/city you work in?
I believe the expression is “if you are bored of London, you are bored of life”. London is an inspiring business environment and working in Mayfair, in the West End, could possibly be the best place to work in the world! It gives us close contact with the professional community, lawyers and accountants, but also the financial community; many of the buyers of our more expensive properties work only a few miles to the east in the City or Canary Wha
