With over ten years’ experience in the estate agency sector for a number of well-known and mainly independent agencies in South East London including George Proctor and Partners (now Proctors), Homefront, Your Move and jdm, I’ve always had a keen interest in the residential and property industry. Initially joining George Proctor and Partners as a Trainee Negotiator, I successfully worked my way up through the ranks to Branch and Sales Manager at jdm Estate Agents in the busy town of Bromley where we dealt with properties ranging from £200,000 up to £2 million.

During my time at jdm I was approached by a close friend to assist in setting up two parts of his new business, Picture Perfect Films who specialised in high end wedding videography as well as Drunk Monkey Productions who specialised in corporate videos working with companies including Formula 1, Rolex and ITN to name a few. I decided this was not an opportunity to be missed and joined as Business Development Manager bringing brand awareness to the company and building relationships within the business.

After a move from London to Canterbury, I joined a more local firm of estate agents called Ward and Partners who fall under the Arun Estates brand as an Assistant Branch Manager in their Birchington office. After 9 months back in estate agency, an opportunity arose to join TDM Recruitment at an exciting time of expansion which offered a new avenue in my career and something I feel I could not miss out on. Whilst a step out of my comfort zone at the beginning, I have never looked back since and the love for the job only grows day on day.

Outside of work I enjoy socialising with friends, family members and being involved in my local 11 a side football team in Whitstable as striker.
