I joined Hobbs Parker in 2021 after working for an independent estate agency in my coastal hometown of Folkestone for over a decade.
The earlier part of my career was spent in the coastal town of Folkestone, for over a decade I watched this town rise like a phoenix from the ashes with a welcome boost from London buyers eager to seek out the cultural quarter.
I’ve many years of experience in the property world, including residential sales, lettings and block management. But, I get the most satisfaction from sales and I especially get genuine pleasure from helping people find them their new home. I’m especially fascinated by the rich diversity of our coastline and the towns and villages nearby where I’m fortunate to conduct numerous valuations.
Personally, I believe that not enough is made in property marketing of proximity to our great beaches and the leisure time that can be spent exercising dogs, watching the wildlife or taking an early morning dip! I know that you don’t have to be on top of the seafront to enjoy these activities but it certainly helps to live in areas where it is not too far away.
I’ve always been fascinated with property. Estate agency has always been my ideal job vocation and is it’s why I have been in the industry since completing my further education. The opportunity to head up the Hobbs Parker Coastal Property brand is a dream come true.
When I’m am not at work, you will usually find me in the great outdoors. I love living in the heart of #TheGardenOfEngland, and being so close to the coast. Kent and East Sussex offer a wealth of breath-taking walks and sporting activities which I will always try once. I made a hopeless footballer, but my height, I’m 6′ 6″, gives me a significant advantage on the basketball court – nothing is more gratifying than scoring a three-pointer that hits nothing but the net!
Music is very much in my DNA – it’s been a big part of my family for generations.
I am a self-taught musician playing the guitar, bass, drums and an attempt at the piano. My musical fascination came from my Dad, who had a wonderful selection of guitars that I was allowed to play as a child.
Later on, in life, I had the privilege of playing in a band with Dad called Zero Tolerance, going round the local ‘pub circuit’. I have also been a signed recording artist and was in a band called The Diamond Hope, where we recorded at a studio in Challock called Dirt Track Studios and released music on the record label Acoustic Mirror Records.
