I now deal with all areas of property transactions including sales, purchases, re mortgages, transfers of equity and equity release transactions. As part of my managerial responsibilities I provide on-going training and support to all members of my team to ensure that they provide and deliver the highest level of client care together with sitting on the management team to ensure that our core values are delivered across all departments within the firm.
