There are lots of aspects I enjoy, the main enjoyment is working with property and buildings, combined with meeting and helping people. I enjoy being out of the office, meeting new people and providing advice, resolving problems, and helping clients maximise their return from investments.
Within the business there is great satisfaction and enjoyment from seeing individuals and teams grow in confidence and achieve success.
What are your hobbies and interests?
I enjoy being outdoors, mainly on the golf course when not spending time with my young family. I also watch football, supporting Sunderland doesn’t mean I can say I enjoy it!
