Having studied Property Management and Development at college, I began working in the property industry as a Sales Negotiator in Norwich City Centre. This was a great start to my career in a busy office environment. Since then, I have worked in varied roles and areas until my current role as a Property Marketing Consultant at Parson Estate Agents specialising in Market Appraisals and launching homes for sale. Since working in the industry, I have expanded my skills and knowledge, giving me a greater understanding of our sellers and buyer’s needs and allowing me to ensure superb customer service. I have dealt with a range of properties from the smallest of homes right through to large country properties together with new homes in the area. As a previous client of Parson, I experienced first-hand the level of customer that they provide their clients. This attracted me to join the team! BACKGROUND I have lived in Norfolk and Suffolk and am now settled living in Harleston. I have always enjoyed exploring the local area and helping in the community where possible. I also take a keen interest in football, actively following my favourite team and hoping to return to the game myself in the next year.
