I have a huge interest in financial services and the property market. Working with clients to ensure they can get the mortgage to buy their dream home gives me great satisfaction.

Miles & Barr is like one big family, they do everything possible to make sure you're happy, so it is great to work as a big team and being in an office where everyone pushes each other to succeed is enjoyable.

In my spare time I like city breaks exploring Europe and spending time with my dogs and family.

I have a weak spot for property and a natural ability with finances, so being a financial advisor within an estate agency seemed the perfect combination.

Even though Miles & Barr has grown considerably, it still feels like a small family run business, where every member of staff is valued, which is something I really like about working here.

I am married with two children so my spare time is taken up with days out, holidays and just generally having fun as a family.

My career has always been front of house sales, but I became interested in the admin and invoicing aspect of the role. I looked at how I could do this career wise and opted for financial services as it involved working with numbers and customer interaction, both of which I really enjoy.

I had been working in the banking sector since 2002 and decided I wanted a different challenge, which Miles & Barr offered. My role is quite varied within the team, I'm set projects to help improve our service to customers. This is challenging but rewarding as I love helping our customers to save money! The team within financial services are very professional and efficient but they still have a lot of fun and not a day passes without an office full of laughter! It is a lovely environment to work in.

Away from work I am a father or two sons and I have become involved with their scout group. We go camping, it is great fun and gets us all out the house. When not scouting we play football and xbox, so we don't get much homework done!

I chose to work in the financial advice industry because I wanted to be able to help people buy their own home. Whether it be helping first time buyers onto the property ladder, or homemovers buying the home of their dreams, I want to make it happen. The feeling of being involved with securing my clients' futures is very rewarding.

I like working alongside Miles & Barr because I like their work ethos, forward thinking and commitment to high quality service to all their clients. I also think everyone who works for Miles & Barr are genuinely nice people. Ultimately all of us are here to help people buy and sell their homes.

In my spare time I enjoy socialising with friends and family, playing netball and any form of travel to new places.

I started in the mortgage industry in 1996, I was already in financial services but wanted to deal directly with the public. I like the fact that Miles & Barr is not a large corporate company.

I've been following Formula One since 1987, I enjoy playing golf and spending time with my family.

Property is always something I have been interested in so working in this industry was an easy choice for me. I first started working for Miles & Barr in 2014 as an administrator in the Deal Branch then moved to Financial Services in 2016 where I am now part of the team at Discovery Park dealing with mortgage compliance which I am really dedicated to.

I enjoy working for Miles & Barr because there is always a great atmosphere whatever branch you go to and you feel like you’re part of one big family.

Out of work I enjoy playing squash at least once a week, spending time with friends and family and taking my dog on walks.

I chose to work in the financial industry as I have always had an interest in both finance and property. This job allows me to interact with people face-to-face, which I love. I help them with financial decisions to either get their dream home or allow for a solution to financial needs.

Working for Miles & Barr is a pleasure as they give full trust to their advisers to do best by their customers and give me freedom in conducting my day-to-day business. In addition the support they give is excellent with regards to training and development.

I started working as mortgage adviser in 2006, working for Nationwide Building Society. I began as a customer adviser and it was the next step in terms of career progression there.

I love helping people purchase their home, especially first time buyers and I like to explain to them how a mortgage works. Equally, I love making sure I look after them now in the future, if fully fit or unwell.

I play in various bands as a bassist, which takes up most of my spare time.

I have always been interested in all aspects of property from a young age. I didn't want to travel to London for work, but want a company with that sort of quality feel to it, which we have.

The company is ever growing but it's great that it doesn't lose its family feel so I think working for Miles & Barr is ideal for me.

In my spare time I enjoy holidays and travelling.

I've been working in the financial industry since 2001, I have previously worked as an adviser and after that as a manager. Since joining Miles & Barr my role has changed, I head up the admin team and conduct interviews, which combines both management and meeting new people, something I really enjoy.

I like working in the Miles & Barr team because we help people to make life-changing steps, such as buying their first home.

I spend all my spare time with my children, family and friends, enjoying their company whether it's visiting places or socialising.

I have worked within the financial sector since 1997, ranging from retail banking, regional management to now financial services and I love the fast-paced, constantly evolving, commercial edge of the industry.

It is very rare to find an organisation in today's society who value their staff and customers so highly and strive to provide an outstanding experience for everyone, it's important to be treated as an individual and not a number.

In my spare time I like going to the gym, exploring and socialising with my friends and family.

Being part of the best agent in the South East and appreciating their commitment to providing a great service when buying a home is what I like about working for Miles & Barr.

I generally work on home improvements, maintaining the garden and have a passion for films in my spare time.
