Why did you decide on this career path? My parents told me I couldn’t leave uni without a full time job!

What’s the worst part of your job? Having to tell people their sale or purchase has fallen through.
What’s the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you as an estate agent? There are lots of things that spring to mind, some too gross to mention! It was pretty funny when a patio door came off in my hands and I had to stand there holding it upright until Mark came to rescue me! As I’m only 5ft tall it was a bit tricky!
What are your day to day responsibilities? Making sure the younger members of staff are ok, getting new properties to sell, selling houses and helping to keep an eye on some of our systems.

When you have free time, what do you like to do? Walking or sewing. But I have children so I don;t have free time!
If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would it be? Margaret Thatcher. I love the fact she was a powerful woman in charge way before anyone considered it the norm.
Tell me something surprising about you that not many people know. At 22 I was the youngest manager Michael Anthony have ever had.
