What are the future plans ? I have thorougly enjoyed my journey with Anthony Davies over the last 20 years. I started out with big ideas and dreams of running a successful property company. Now aged 52 I am certainly pleased with what we have achieved to date. Working in residential Lettings and Sales whilst running a large property portfolio can be challenging but I have a young and dynamic team to make sure we remain at the top table of agents. Agency is very different from when I started out and we will ensure we adapt to the Modern Principles of Agency. Looking forward we will be opening both COMMERCIAL and LAND & NEW HOMES departments in 2018, we are also looking at suitable sites for our third office launch in 2019/2020. We are committed to independent agency and the personal touch that comes with it.
