I have been involved within estate agency for the last 16 years. I started my career with the largest chain of estate agents at the tender of age of 18, quickly working my way through the ranks to senior negotiator. At the age of 23 I was handed the keys to my first office to manage and continued for a number of years to manage traditional firms. I was headhunted by an online agent and felt it was the right time to join them, the days of the traditional office seemed to be numbered. Although I very much enjoyed my 4 years with them and selling hundreds of properties; I felt, in some respects, the customer journey could be improved. I was lucky to meet Mark during my tenure, who was very like minded and we set about creating Whiting & Barlow. We wanted to blend the elements of traditional estate agency but with a fee offering that was closer to the online agents.
In my spare time you will often find me enjoying the stunning Cornish scenery with my family; my partner Jade, my daughter Freya and Milly the dog. My hobbies include: Fishing, snooker and my newly realised hobby of baking, which started during the first lockdown.
