Search for properties in Bedford & the surrounding villages
Having worked in the property industry in Bedford for 15 years and 8 of those years with the team here in Bedford. I live in a local village with my family close to Bedford and have great knowledge of the local surrounding villages and Bedford itself. Having experienced both selling and buying properties myself I understand that it is a very big move in people’s lives and the support of a good agent is definitely invaluable. I have done a varied number of roles from sales chasing, viewings but my main role which I’m most passionate about is the administration side of the job. I fully appreciate the attention to detail whether it’s sending sales letters to solicitors or typing up descriptions of properties. I work hard to deadlines and understand when a house comes to the market it needs to be advertised fully and correctly.
I’m delighted to be part of such a dedicated and experienced team here at Urban & Rural in Bedford. My role is Sales Progressor and I’m here to ensure that our clients are always at the heart of what we do. With over 10 years’ experience in customer care I’ll be the one to help guide you through the buying and selling process. It can be daunting when entering the housing market, I know as I’ve experienced this first hand when buying my own property in 2016. With the help of our adaptable and approachable professionals, together we will strive to give you the very best experience and see you happily into your new home.
I began my estate agency career with Urban & Rural following leaving school in 2006 and I have never looked back! I have worked at both our Dunstable and Flitwick branches before now co-owning the Bedford branch with Gareth. Working through a variety of market conditions has given me invaluable experience on what is required to succeed in any market place. My main role within our branch is providing potential sellers with a market appraisal of their home. This is the part of the job which I enjoy the most as I get a real insight in to what is motivating people to move and help guide them through the process from start to finish. Customer service is always our number one priority. We understand how stressful the moving process can be which is why the job we do is so important.
Having started my Estate Agency career in London in 2014, I have a vast amount of experience and knowledge of the housing market and have previously worked for both independent and corporate Estate Agencies. Since moving from Hertfordshire to Bedford in 2015, I have loved working within the town and have built great understanding of the market and local knowledge. My Favourite part of my job is matching buyers to their perfect property and handing over the keys upon completion! Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family & friends and as an ex-rugby player, often visit the gym to stay in shape. I am also a supporter of both the Bedford Blues & Saracens and enjoy attending matches when I can
Having worked within estate agency for 14 years I began my career in one of the busiest towns in Bedfordshire as a sales negotiator. I quickly learned how important it is to build trust and long-term relationships with my clients. I am an all-round team player who loves to get involved within every aspect of the role and still love being very much a front-line member of the team. Having been schooled in Bedford and growing up locally I was delighted to have the opportunity to come back and work within the town.
“Ever since purchasing my own home I have been interested in the housing market. While searching for a property I met many estate agents and was shocked at the difference in commitment and quality, leading me to know I could make a big difference for my customers. I started helping out at weekends and soon discovered the owners Glenn and Gareth held the same values and high standards as me. I feel very privileged to be able to develop my career as a part of the excellent team at Urban and Rural. My personal goal is to always listen carefully to what my customers are telling me they are looking to achieve from the buying and selling process. This way I can provide them with the very best service from the start to finish. Having worked and lived all my life in the Bedfordshire area, I believe that I have a great insight into the area and am therefore able to advise my customers accordingly if they are unsure about anything. For me, the best part of the job is meeting new people, understanding their needs and then providing them with an outcome that really ticks all their boxes so they can find their new home.”
I consider myself a hardworking and sincere member of the team, acting professionally at all times. Providing a consistently high level of customer service is important to me which is why I always deliver on my commitments to both buyers & sellers. Helping people buy, sell and rent a property is something I truly enjoy and being local I have a good knowledge of the area and why it is such a great place to live.. I enjoy working at Urban & Rural as I work closely with the owners and like their ever evolving business model.
Having worked in a Lettings agent for over three years, it was time to branch out as I wanted to develop my knowledge of the Sales industry. Since joining the team here at Urban & Rural I feel I can really utilise my skills and experience in delivering first-class customer service to all of our clients. I strive to not only meet, but exceed our clients’ expectations. Every day in the property industry is different which is one of the reasons I love it so much! Living in Bedford means I know the local areas very well and you can usually find me out and about either fishing or meeting new people.
