Lettings Manager

I joined Oakfield in September 2019 as a Lettings Manager at our Eastbourne Branch. I brought with me almost 5 years’ experience in the Lettings industry which has led me to be personal yet driven to provide the best service possible to all my clients.

I started in the industry as an administrator and after showing lots of ability and drive to want to give the best service possible I was soon promoted to the front end business where I was predominantly dealing with clients and ensuring they had the best journey possible while dealing with myself in the property industry. After proving myself at a large corporate company I was then promoted to Lettings Manager and I have really just made sure that both my staff and my customers receive a 5 star service with a smile from myself and to me I honestly believe people buy from people so I will always provide the best service to give you the best journey.

Outside of work I like to spend time in the gym to maintain a clear head as well as spending time with my long-term partner. I’m quite a fun guy and like to have a jokes with friends and work colleagues however If I’m not at work I’m sure you’ll find me either in the garden or watching boxing as I do like to try and get some down time when not at the gym.

Property Manager

I started working with Oakfield in November 2015 as the Branch Administrator in the Eastbourne branch and after returning from my maternity leave in 2020 I stepped into the role as Property Manager. I am thoroughly enjoying this new role and enjoy speaking regularly with our landlords, tenants and contractors.

During my career at Oakfield I have completed a qualification to become a member of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and in 2017 at our annual awards ceremony I was very proud to receive the ‘Administrator of the Year’ award.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband and our young son as well as other family members and friends. Before working at Oakfield I was an Assistant Manager at a local cocktail bar which comes in handy when I get together with my friends. I have grown up in Eastbourne and absolutely love where I live, I enjoy walks along the seafront, dining out at local restaurants and relaxing in our home.

Senior Branch Partner

My estate agency career began when I joined Oakfield early 2011, having lived locally all my life, property was always something that fascinated me. I am the Senior Branch Partner of our Eastbourne Branch and one of the things I love most about my job is building a fantastic rapport up with our clients, I thoroughly enjoy dealing with people and delivering a fantastic level of customer service. I was awarded Oakfield’s Customer Service Award two years running.

I am a fully qualified member of the Association of Residential Managing Agents (ARLA) as well as The National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA). At our 2017 awards ceremony I received what I consider to be the most prestigious award given out, the ‘Employee of the Year’ I was very excited I had been chosen to receive this award. Prior to moving to our Eastbourne branch I had 4 years as Branch Manager of our Bexhill where we won “Branch of the Year” two years in a row which made me incredibly proud!

I am a very organised person and love to keep the office, (and husband!) in check, I have a large family and enjoy spending time with them, I regularly go to concerts with my Mum – she mainly makes sure that we are in the que by 9am to be in the front row! I enjoy eating out with my husband, we love trying new food and new places. We also like to make sure we see lots of the world, so are always planning where we would like to go next.

I have recently joined Oakfield as manager of the Eastbourne branch and bring with me over 25 years of Estate Agency experience selling properties throughout East Sussex.

I started working in the industry in Brighton as a trainee lettings negotiator and within 5 years I was running my own office. Over the years I have dealt with the sale of a variety of different properties from Beach Huts to large blocks of flats and many new build sites too.

Outside of work, I have been married for 23 years and have two children both in University. At weekends, I’m either walking the dog or out socialising. I love my sport including rugby, football and golf.

Sales Negotiator

I joined Oakfield in 2019 as a Sales Negotiator, having come over from my previous in telesales where I gained plenty of knowledge in selling products and communicating with customers on a day to day basis, I joined Oakfield as I was ready to make a solid career for myself in a successful company, it is my job to meet applicants and show them around properties, keep in regular contact with the vendor for updates as to how the property is getting on, dealing with offers on all properties, and making sure the process is very smooth and successful for both parties.

I would describe myself as, friendly, outgoing, and a good laugh to be around. In my spare time I like socialising with my friends, weather that be at the local pub winning on the dart board or pool table, or playing football. I like to keep active and healthy by going to the gym when I have the time. I have recently moved out of my parents house, so I am also having to adapt to that and eating a lot of burnt food!
