After giving up on my childhood dream of becoming a fighter pilot it was fairly natural that I ended up as an estate agent?! I’m not sure if anyone sets out to become an estate agent but I love dealing with people and helping them any way I can, so it turned out to be the perfect fit. I’ve been working in the industry for donkey’s years, in both the independent and corporate sectors, but I prefer to say I’m ‘experienced’.

My dream was realised when I opened the doors to Cole’s in 2010 and I love what we do; helping buyers find their dream home and helping sellers every step of the way through what can seem a daunting experience. I’m very lucky to have such a wonderful team around me, but don’t tell them that! I grew up in East Grinstead and am passionate about the town and surrounding area so I like to get involved in various events and projects, but above all I want to grow the reputation of Cole’s as the place to go whether selling, buying, letting or renting property, for many years to come.

When I’m not spending countless hours working (whether at home or in the office) I like building Lego Princess castles (I might add with my two beautiful girls) and spending time with my wife and children – whether it’s walking on the Ashdown Forest or watching movies on the sofa.

I started my office career at a local stationery supplier, but quickly realised that working purely behind a desk with a phone was not for me.

With my father and uncle being in the property industry, I felt that joining an estate agents was a good way forward and it has proved a positive move. I have been at Cole’s just over three years now and really enjoy meeting new people and helping them find their new homes along with assisting with their house sales.

I now live in Uckfield but I grew up in the Chelwood Gate area, so pride myself on having a wealth of local knowledge especially in areas surrounding the Ashdown Forest.

Outside of work I enjoy riding my horse and walking in the countryside with my dogs. I also enjoy travelling the world with my fiancé, Will, with Sydney, Australia and Phuket, Thailand being two of our favourites places to visit. We are planning to travel to new and exciting destinations in the year ahead.

I have been in the Estate Agency business for 16 years, starting part time when my three children were young. I have dealt with both the sales and rental side of the business so have an understanding of all aspects. I enjoy the interaction with people and helping make the transition from one home to another as smooth as possible for everyone.

Outside of work I do like to be active and I do this by running a couple of times a week and am attempting the Brighton Marathon this year. I also enjoy Outdoor Military Fitness at Deers Leap and have met lots of local people there.

Having now worked in East Grinstead for 16 months, I like it so much I intend to move to the area this coming year and wish to get involved in many more local events.

Having been with Coles from the outset, it has been amazing to see the changes from starting in a small office to now working with a strong and vibrant team, offering full support to buyers and sellers in all aspects of the process.

I have lived in East Grinstead for 9 years and have 3 children at the local schools so have a good knowledge of the area and the many sports activities that I have taxied various children too over the years.

I have always been interested in property and was lucky enough to start working at an independent estate agents when my children were very young – over 18 years ago.

I love the diversity that my role as a sales negotiator offers, from taking properties on, showing people round, negotiating offers and concluding the sale.

I started working at Cole’s in the summer of 2017, slightly daunted having worked at my last company for so long. I am happy to say I have been welcomed into the Cole’s team with open arms.

In my spare time I enjoy travelling, going for long walks (ending with a pub lunch) and catching up on box sets on Netflix.

Having a creative flair whilst also being accused of “attention to detail” and being a serial mover/renovator of far too many properties in my time, I was strangely, although probably naturally drawn to estate agency following earlier careers in sales management and interior design. Meeting new people every day and helping them match their wish list to find their ideal new home is both challenging and rewarding. No two days are ever the same which is why I’ve been a negotiator for over 15 years now.

I have lived and worked in the local area for 30 years and settled four years ago in Forest Row and am just completing what I hope is my final renovation! I am an avid yogi and passionate about my practice wherever I am in my life. Any opportunity to travel the world is snapped up but equally I love walking our border terrier on the beautiful Ashdown Forest. I have also just started selling my own greetings cards from my watercolour paintings; mostly cycling, yoga and border terrier related!

I started working in the lettings department at Cole’s in 2015. I enjoy the fact that no two days are the same in this varied and engaging role. It’s fantastic to work in such a friendly environment.

I have lived in the area for most of my life and therefore have extensive local knowledge particularly of Forest Row as I live there with my husband and two young children. In my spare time I enjoy family walks on the Ashdown Forest and love reading.

Weekend Negotiator

I love to meet new people. In my role as weekend negotiator I get to do just that! I really enjoy helping people find their perfect home and often spend the whole day going from one viewing to the next! I moved to East Grinstead 7 years ago, so know what it’s like to move to a new area. I now live in Ashurst Wood with my husband and three children, so I have a good understanding of the local schools and the various activities on offer in the area, as my children seem to have a better social life than me!

Event planner by week, negotiator by weekend! I’ve always had an interest in property so I was delighted when a weekend position became available at Cole’s. I love meeting new people not to mention looking at new properties. I’ve lived in the area my whole life so have a good local knowledge.

I have a keen interest in travelling – Thailand ticked off last year with South Africa booked in this year! I also love walking (when the weather’s nice) and in the evening I enjoy spending time in nice restaurants with good company.
