As the Sales Manager of the Harcourts Holmwood St Albans office, I have the pleasure of working with a phenomenal team of hard-working and friendly professionals.

If you’re thinking about buying or selling, please contact me to discuss your needs. I’ll put you in touch with the right person for you.

If you’re thinking about a career in real estate, please call me for a confidential chat.

I started my career as a Buyers’ Agent for an award-winning agent and gained a strong understanding of what makes a successful real estate team ‘tick’. After several years in sales I made the move into auctioneering and in 2019 I was named the Harcourts National ‘Rising Star’.

I’ve since assisted thousands of people in buying and selling property, and my ethos is very simple: treat people like people. A great client experience is the key to success in real estate, and the team at St Albans are a testament to that.

Our office is a fun, diverse and happy environment – and there’s room for you too. So, call me today. I’d love to talk.
