Greg WoodValuer and Head of New Business
Most days I just about manage to balance my commitment to estate agency, with a passion for sport, my family and cocker spaniel.
I joined Hobbs Parker in 2018 following several years working for a sales and lettings national franchise business. During that time I worked with a fantastic group of business owners, helping them develop their businesses and, in a number of cases, launch new sales departments. I dealt with numerous cold start launches as well as various business acquisitions and mergers.
Prior to this, I spent over 8 years working for a large corporate estate agent. This was my first role in estate agency and from the classic ‘tea boy’ job title on day one, I progressed through practically every role in the industry. For the bulk of my time, I spent several very happy years as a branch manager selling properties in and around Ashford. When I moved on, my role had progressed into an area sales director position.
The downside of this was being detached from the best job in the industry – which is exactly what I do now – valuing property!
So, enough of the formal stuff, this isn’t Linkedin after all, here’s a little bit about me.
I am born and bred in Ashford I have lived in and around the town for most of my life.
After returning from 3 years in Cardiff (while at University) I moved to Folkestone and several years after that I have moved back to Ashford.
Outside work, I am a very active family man who, just about, balances home life with all manner of outdoor pursuits. From swimming to shooting and cross country running to triathlon I seem to manage to squeeze this in around work and family life.
My active lifestyle is topped off by owning a working cocker spaniel called Bramble. The only thing she enjoys more than running around a field is running around it twice!
