Meet Our Eastbourne Team
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 started with Oakfield in November 2015 as the Branch Administrator, since then I have progressed to become the Senior Branch Administrator in the Eastbourne branch. Working with Oakfield I have learnt many aspects of the residential sales and lettings process.
During my career I have completed my qualifications 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.
Before working at Oakfield I was an assistant manager at a local cocktail bar which means I make a mean espresso martini. I have been raised in Eastbourne and absolutely love where I live. In my personal time I enjoy sunny walks along the downs and seafront, dining out at local restaurants, spending time with family and socialising with friends.
I joined Oakfield at the beginning of 2019 as an Apprentice Administrator after deciding it was time for a change from the customer service related jobs I had found myself in after leaving school. I felt Oakfield was the right Estate Agency for me to begin my new career within because everyone works closely together as well as being very welcoming and friendly.
I started working at the Eastbourne branch which is the town where I was brought up, so I know the local area very well. I have always had an interest in properties and working at Oakfield I feel as though I have the support behind me to progress further into estate agency.
When i’m not working I like spending time with friends, family and my boyfriend, eating out at local restaurants, going for walks along the seafront and trips to the cinema… sometimes I even make it to the gym.
Estate Agency has been a career I wanted to pursue for a long time and when I started with Oakfield, I just knew it was the job for me. I began my journey in summer 2019 after finally finding the perfect position within a well trusted estate agents. I felt Oakfield was the right Estate Agent when I read about their company values and how close knit the team was, I was pleasantly surprised when I started my first day in Eastbourne, everyone was so welcoming and made me feel at home straight away. Being as I grew up with my family in Eastbourne I have a strong knowledge of the local area and I know my way around.
When im not working I spent my time with my family and my partner out enjoying nature and their company.
I can’t wait to progress further into my career with the help of the wonderful Oakfield team.
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!
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.
I started my estate agency career in the summer of 2018 as an apprentice administrator, then stepped into the role of a Trainee Lettings Negotiator at the beginning of 2019. I have previous work experience within customer service, I love interacting and dealing with customers so am very pleased that I get to do this on a day to day basis. I have lived locally all my life with my mum, dad and two younger brothers so feel I know the area pretty well.
I studied Art and Design at college, specialising in graphics and illustration, which is something I will always love to do in my spare time whenever I get the chance. I see this is a massive career change but when I left college, my boyfriend and I were looking into renting a property together and I found the process so interesting. Estate agency is now where my heart is and something I know I can build a lasting career. I love to spend time with my family and friends as frequently as I can, I feel they would describe me as someone who is very happy, silly and kind-hearted. I always put others first and care too much (sometimes this can be a bad trait to have!!). In my evenings after work I love to spend time with my boyfriend, going out for dinner, going to the cinema or watching T.V chilling at home. We have only recently been on our first holiday together (also my very first one) to Barcelona however we absolutely loved it and can’t wait to see the rest of the world.
