What is your job title?

What does a typical day in the life of you look like?..

A morning meeting with the staff, followed by organising diaries. I will then go out on valuations for most of the day while taking calls from current and prospective clients, as well as calls from media companies…

What do you love about your job?

Having the pleasure in helping people to find their perfect home and taking them through the process in a stress-free environment. We take all the strain on their behalf!

What do you dislike about your job?

I hate un-happy clients. We will do everything we can to rectify a situation to turn an un-happy client into a satisfied one!

Best thing about the area you work in?

I would say we are very lucky to live and work in Exeter. It’s a golden nugget for property prices. The infrastructure is amazing; we have a local airport and we’re close to the motorway. We’re just two hours from London, eight miles from the coast, and eight miles from Dartmoor. A lot of major companies are realising all of this and bringing their HQ’s here!

What would you love to be doing in a different life?

I would love to be singing in the West End! Ideally as the lead part in Les Miserables!

How do you spend your time outside of work?

I do quite a lot of charity work and I’m also involved in the Exeter rotary club. We raise a lot of money for the local hospice; I sing in concerts for charity and have performed in a number of musicals.

Favourite food?

Sunday roast, crucially my crunchy roast potatoes!

Favourite holiday destination?

Sensatori Resort in Tenerife! It has the longest pool I’ve ever seen at over 210m long! Second choice would be Center Parc’s in Longleat.

Your dream car?

Aston Martin DB9

What is your favorite part of Dezrez?

Dezrez Tools. We also love Clason & Rhod in account management.

and finally…why?

The Tools feature is really easy to use; clear and precise.
The boys always solve our problems.  There’s an open invitation for a night out with us in Exeter anytime!
