I started working in the industry while at university and really enjoyed it, so when I moved back home to Thanet I wanted to continue doing so.
I like working for Miles & Barr because it is a well-known company and i get to meet new people everyday.
I run around after my daughter Florence in most of my spare time, but I like running and swimming when I get the chance.

Working in Exclusive Homes combines both my interest in property and helping people. It's an exciting department of Miles & Barr to be involved in, due to the amount of character and dream homes you help people to buy and get to see.
Miles & Barr is an enjoyable place to work. The company pushes employees to work to their highest potential, while our offices have a friendly atmosphere where everyone works well together.
I like spending time with my family, taking our dog for walks in our local towns, whether that's along Tankerton seafront or into Blean Woods. I also like socialising with friends in my spare time.

I began my career in the industry in 1982, straight off the back of finishing my A-levels. I saw a job as a trainee negotiator/surveyor and haven't looked back since landing the role. I first met with Christian Miles and Stuart Barr in the late 80s, while working for independent agents. I've had a number of roles in my career, from area to regional management in East Kent and I also spent ten years working around Chislehurst, with properties up to the £5m bracket.
Having always had a close relationship with Christian and Stuart, I decided to get on board with Miles & Barr when they invited me to set up from scratch the bespoke department, Exclusive Homes, in 2013. We now have a portfolio of around 100 properties and year on year our performance levels have increased dramatically.
I'm responsible for marketing properties from around the £500,000 mark upwards. We cover all of the Miles & Barr offices, with an Exclusive Homes representative in each of them. I oversee the representatives and coordinate the team. One of my main roles within the department is to value and market our exclusive properties.
I like that fact that Miles & Barr directors are hands on with the business. It is a dynamic company which has the ability to adjust to any market changes and are market leaders in the towns we operate in.
I love spending time with my family when possible, my children are grown up and my son works in real estate in America, so we all like to get together out there. We enjoy holidays together too. Any other spare time I get is spent playing golf. I enjoy being in and around our local towns and having vast experience in East Kent makes that even more enjoyable. Our towns on the whole has become a catchment area for out of town buyers, notably those from London.

- Advertising and print media: Miles and Barr firmly believe that alongside our internet promotion, local and regional newspaper and magazine advertising is still a powerful marketing tool to attract potential buyer clients. Titles include Kent Life, Kentish Gazette, KRN and KM local papers. We also produce an eMagazine titled Coast and Country which is sent out monthly to our database of over 35,000.

- London connections: Through our membership of Relocation Agent Network we are able to promote your home to over 600 leading like-minded independent agents across the UK. More importantly as the majority of our out of town buyers are relocating from London, the benefit of having 50 offices in London and Greater London within the network increases your exposure to these buyers considerably.
