I have worked in the estate agency business since 1988 and have worked for most of the corporate companies since. I have managed a variety of different branches across Hampshire and have enjoyed good success in all of them.
The industry has always had its critics and in an effort to differentiate me from others I joined the National Association of Estate Agents in the 1990’s imagining that licensing would soon become necessary.
In 2002, I opened my own branch of Chapplins Estate Agents in Fareham where the business grew quickly to become a market leading agency in a relatively short period of time. The Chapplins brand has become one of the largest independent estate agencies in the Portsmouth region and we have been members of Team since our inception. Chapplins is not a franchise, just a friendly group of similarly minded estate agents with many years experience.
I was elected as South Hampshire Team Chairman in 2005 and held this post for 7 years.
In May 2011, I was elected as the National Marketing Director for Team Association representing the interests of independent estate agents across the country.
Specialties: I am regularly involved in negotiating national contracts and have wide experience in representing members interests across a broad spectrum of providers.
