15 London Road
Director, Estate AgencySt Albans
What are your key areas of responsibility at Strutt & Parker?
I am the partner in charge of St Albans residential sales – this covers anything from a small apartment to a large house on the outskirts of the city, or in the surrounding villages. Having worked in the city for the entirety of my agency career, I have grown to know so much about the city itself, and feel really passionate about the city and the houses that we have the privilege to sell here. We get to work with some really interesting clients, and I love the fact that we get the opportunity to work with these clients from start to finish in their property sale. Each individual client has their own needs, and we work hard to ensure that these are always met. The satisfaction I get from running this department is that not only do we get to handle some great properties, but I also get to oversee the personal development of the young and vibrant team that we have now built here.
What’s the best thing about your job?
The best thing about my job is that I really enjoy working as part of an active team. We have got a really great team here, which combines youth, experience, and energy – allowing us to face to the challenges that we face with enthusiasm. I also really enjoy the diverse range of properties that we get to sell – sometimes we will be handling the sale of a tiny cottage on behalf of a charity – which might need a great deal of work doing to it – a really attractive prospect to young couples moving out of London perhaps, and other times, we will be handling the sale of a large family home, when the owners are choosing to downsize.
