Meet Our Bexhill Team
My career at Oakfield started in 2005 when I joined the sales team in our Hastings Branch, I came from a recruitment background however I set my sights on Estate Agency and haven’t looked back. After getting off to a great start at Oakfield I was promoted to Sales Manager then took over management of the Hastings Branch overseeing a team of staff doing both sales and lettings.
In 2015 my role changed I was promoted to Area Director, whilst I am still based in Hastings I oversee the day to day running of all the branches, I work closely with the Branch Managers to ensure that our Clients have a positive experience when dealing with Oakfield and that our staff have support and guidance in their roles. The thing I love most about my job is being able to take a step back and look at our practices and procedures to ensure the company is working proactively.
One of my passions in my role is our Apprenticeship Scheme, in 2016 Oakfield took the decision to employ Apprentices in our Branches, this has proved to be an excellent decision. From the beginning I have worked with the local collages to recruit Apprentices and once in the role I closely mentor them throughout their Apprenticeships something I thoroughly enjoy. I take great pride in watching them thrive in their roles.
My home life is very busy I have two young children who keep me on my toes! We love spending time as a family and enjoy frequent trips to the beach for walks along the promenade and bike rides. We enjoy breaks away in our caravan as well as holidays abroad. Our favourite holiday destination as a family is Disney World.
I joined Oakfield in late 2016 as a Senior Sales Marketing Consultant at our Bexhill branch. I bought with me over 20 years’ experience in the industry working in both sales and lettings.
My journey into estate agency started in 1997 as a trainee negotiator working for one of the well-known corporate agencies. From the very start of my career I knew that Estate Agency was a passion of mine, after a few years in different branches I was approached to run my own office an opportunity I jumped at. I was a manager for over 10 years running two very successful branches before making the decision to step down from management focus solely on sales as that is what I love.
Since being at Oakfield our Bexhill Branch has gone from strength to strength in sales which makes me very proud. At the end of 2017 I was promoted to Sales Manager and won the Negotiator or the Year Award, then in January 2019 I stepped into the role of Branch Manager of our Bexhill branch I am extremely proud to be the Manager of such a successful branch.
Outside of work, I am married and have a 5-year-old daughter, I love spending time with my family and at the weekends you will find me in my garden bar or in charge of the BBQ. In my (limited) spare time I enjoy watching football and playing golf.
I joined Oakfield early 2018, having previously worked for an estate agent in Eastbourne. My role is to arrange and carry out viewings, book marketing proposal meetings and make sure that our vendors get the best possible price for their property. I work closely alongside Phil and Josh to make sure that the beginning of our vendors sale is as smooth and as stress free as possible, I am always on hand to answer any questions our vendors or buyers may have. In September 2019 I was promoted to a Senior Sales Negotiator which means that I will start to carry out marketing proposal meetings and oversee the new stock that comes on in Hastings and St Leonards.
I have always worked within customer service and enjoy meeting new people so being within this industry is fantastic for me as I meet new people and help them when it comes to finding the perfect home for them to buy. Alongside my role as a Senior Sales Negotiator I am studying to get the qualifications to become a member of the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA).
I live in Hastings and have done all my life I am very familiar with Bexhill as I have family in the town and regularly spend time here. When I am not in the office tying up sales you will find me watching and playing football or spending time with my friends and family.
I joined the Bexhill branch as a sales negotiator in December 2019. I am excited to get my career in property underway as I am new to the industry and really looking forward to learning the ropes through Oakfield. In my spare time I enjoy watching and playing sports, mainly cricket, and most Saturday nights are spent at the pub with my friends. In the new year I look forward to gaining experience within the industry sales and gaining my qualification with the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) to progress my career further.
I joined Oakfield in July 2018 as part of the administration team for the Bexhill Branch. My role includes ensuring property are advertised and listed correctly and that all branch correspondence is managed and distributed appropriately. With my attention to detail and my organisation skills I hope to become a real asset to Oakfield.
In my spare time I love to swim, I used to compete at both country and regional levels, I was and still am very proud of my swimming achievements. I love making memories with friends and family whether it be a family Sunday lunch or a shopping day with friends. I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to visit some amazing places some of my favourites have been Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Florida. I cant wait to see more of the world and I am very excited for what the future has to offer.
