Sarah Holgate

Associate Director and Head of The Villages

I love art -- especially water colour painting.  I run with the Hobbs Parker Running club, enjoy yoga, my dogs and time with my family.

After qualifying as a bilingual and legal secretary, I started my work life as an insurance broker for the construction industry.  I guess this is where my love of architecture and buildings stems from.

When my son was 2 years old, we decided to move from Maidstone to Ashford and I had my daughter a couple of years later.  Shortly afterwards, in 2005, I started working at Hobbs Parker in the Estate Agents department and was very fortunate to be trained by some of the best valuers, negotiators and surveyors in the industry.

I have gained a huge amount of knowledge and experience over many years working here in every department even including a short spell in car auctions!

I am now fortunate enough to do the job I most coveted being Head of The Villages – I don’t know of many people who can say they love their job but I honestly do, it’s a real privilege to help people move and find them their dream home.
