A bit about me

My father ran his own estate agents for many years so I had an interest in property from an early age. I now have over 20 years’ experience in property law and I’m as enthusiastic today as the day I started out. During that time, I’ve been involved in many different types of transactions, and have met some wonderful clients who have gone on to recommend me to their friends and family.

I make buying and selling houses as exciting, enjoyable and stress-free for you as possible. I treat each transaction as if it were my own, so I’ll work in the way that’s best for you.
I also work with property developers to bring sites to market and the subsequent plot sales. I’ll assess your requirements early on, so I have a complete understanding of what you may need during a sale or purchase.

Laughter is my fuel and my main passion in life is being surrounded by happy and positive people. I enjoy socialising with friends, family and colleagues and like seeing them succeed in their own personal goals and challenges.

Want to know more?

Stay focused and calm.

Call me if you have any concerns. I’m always at the end of the phone.

Enjoy the process and let me take the strain away.

I can’t come into the office, can you come and see me instead? 

Yes, of course – get the kettle on!

When will I be able to move into my new home? 

This very much depends on the other people involved in the transaction.  However, let’s get a target date and I’ll let the other parties know, so we can all work towards it.

Do you keep in touch with the estate agents? 

Yes – transparency is extremely important. By working together, we can get what our clients want.
