My interested in the property market came about when I was helping my brother purchase a house. This spurred me on to purchase my own property and while purchasing through Miles & Barr I asked whether there were any positions available, I applied and was successful!
Since working for Miles & Barr I have been welcomed by everyone in the company and everybody has been so helpful. The company invests so much time into the training of their colleagues and helping them progress in their careers. They really are “…valuing people, not just property”.
I am an ex-chef and still love to get in the kitchen at any opportunity I can but, my Fiancée and I love to visit different restaurants in Kent as often as we can. I am also a bit of a film-o’holic and watch at least three films a week!

Frequently Asked Question’s
Have a read through our FAQs, you may find the answer to what you're looking for quicker than you think.
There are a few costs involved in selling your property:
Estate agent commission – The commission fees are payable once your estate agent sells your property and the contracts have been signed. The charge is a percentage of the sale price and VAT. Your estate agent will make you aware of fees you’ll incur in your preliminary meeting.
Energy Performance Certificate – You must have commissioned an EPC before your property can go on the market. We can organise your EPC – Energy Performance Certificate, just get in touch with your local branch to sort this out or call us on 01304 626 444.
If the property is your main home, you will not have to pay Capital Gains Tax so long as you satisfy certain requirements. If you are selling a property that is not your main home it is more than likely that Capital Gains Tax will incur.
Your property will only continue to be viewed depending on the offer and your preferences. Will I have to pay Capital Gains should be the start of the question beneath.
The buyer is responsible for paying the Stamp Duty.
So long as you have granted us access to your property your presence is not required. We accompany all viewings and it is worth knowing that potential buyers usually feel more relaxed if the owner is not present.
Your Title Deeds are the proof that you own your property. They are usually held by your bank or building society if you have a mortgage and your solicitor will obtain the deeds and make a copy for the buyer’s solicitor.
Who will conduct the viewings on my property once it’s on the market and when will they occur?
We will offer to accompany all viewings during our opening hours. Our opening hours aim to meet the requirements of all our clients, we are open seven days a week for viewings.
