As head of the Harpenden office, I have the pleasure of leading a hugely experienced and pro-active team of agency professionals covering Harpenden and the surrounding villages.

What’s the best thing about your job?
The huge variety of people and houses I see every day, the satisfaction of seeing a sale right through to completion and being able to work within such a professional firm with real clout.
What has been your proudest moment at Strutt & Parker?
