Meet the team
My working life has been property since leaving education starting with one of the large corporate agencies in the late 1970’s. By the late 80’s I was responsible for a group of three offices based in mid Essex but living in Suffolk.
During the early 90’s I felt that the time had come to open my own business and living in Stratford St Mary, East Bergholt seemed the natural place. Twenty years later I cannot think anywhere I would rather be based.
Since we opened the office I have thoroughly enjoyed working within East Bergholt and our industry. I love the interaction with the general public both in matters of property and all other matters that occur!
I feel that I have a great work life balance which is so important as I generally work two days a week and any other time that I am needed. This leaves time for my many other interest which include, antiques, dressmaking, Zumba and Open Doors.
Upon finishing my degree in Rural Land Management at the Royal Agricultural College Cirencester I found myself drawn to working in my family’s business and as the newest member of staff at Grier and Partners I am quickly learning that there is a vast amount to learn working for an Independent Estate Agent. The greatest attraction to the job for me is the variety of work that we undertake from negotiation of house sales through to really understanding the needs of a landlord and finding them a suitable tenant along with the day to day management of our relationships with our clients.
In the field of New Homes, it is a privilege to work in the beautiful East Bergholt and Dedham Vale region, known as Constable Country, acting for builder and developer clients who specialize in all sectors of the market. Above all I am continuously impressed by their attention to quality, detail and pride in the job when creating some of the finest new homes across our area, designed and built in sympathy with the sensitive and beautiful locations in which they can be found.
Sourcing Land for such schemes can be an emotive subject, and as local Property Experts, we are extremely conscious of the responsibility we have in offering a discreet, and personal service to landowners who wish to realize the full potential of their land assets. So whether it is a garden plot surplus to requirements or larger land parcels suitable for development, we focus on expertly guiding owners through each step of the process from planning to sale in order to achieve the best financial outcome.
I have been working at Grier and Partners for 19 years. I enjoy all aspects of the working day. Meeting and speaking to so many buyers and introducing them to some lovely properties in East Bergholt and the surrounding villages. Matching houses to people is such an achievement, especially when I get comments made to me in the village “I remember you, you found us our property several years ago and we still love it”. I feel very much part of a very successful team and look forward to maintaining my services on the secretarial side as the business moves into this new exciting launch in 2014.
