What do you enjoy most about your job?
I deal with the main reception and property within the office. My job includes dealing with all enquiries that come into the office via telephone, email or in person, preparing the sales adverts, taking the photographs of the property and arranging viewings. I also deal with the financial administration and keep up to date with the new regulations and help out with various other tasks within the office including typing and cash room duties.
I enjoy the challenges which come with selling properties and that not every day is the same. I also enjoy spending time out with the office, looking at all the properties and meeting new people.
How long have you worked with the firm? I have worked at Geo & Jas Oliver since January, 2008
What keeps you busy when you’re not at the office? I have a dog and compete in dog agility which keeps me very busy. I also enjoy cooking and walking.

What’s your greatest achievement? Becoming a home owner.
Name two things you can’t live without? My dog and my wellies.

Tell us about your home or dream home? I bought my flat 2 years ago and I still love it now as much as I did then! I think the only thing that I would like would be a bigger garden.
What would be your ideal holiday? I am jetting off to Florida this September and that is my ideal holiday (as I am still a kid a heart!)
