OUR KEYWORTH TEAM

Having been one of the original founders of the company Gary is still at the centre of all the big decision making. Prior to Estate Agency, Gary was a professional footballer with a large part of his career being at Notts County and whilst on the face of it the two industries could not be further apart, he has managed to bring many of the skills required in his sporting life in to the company. After 22 years of exciting times with the company, Gary is looking forward to shaping the next 22!

Interests

It perhaps goes without saying that Gary enjoys sport, with his favourites being golf, skiing, running and football (watching). Keeping fit through running has led to Gary taking part in the 2016 London Marathon. He is also a big fan of a holiday!

Val is the driving force within the office and is 'all-seeing'. She is not just a Director and the office manager but she is the glue that holds everything together and makes sure everything runs as it should with solid team work. Her professional experience is legendary. She worked in the city centre for global property agent Savills for 22 years so she understands the corporate side of the property market but she is passionate about the more personal and detailed local service that an independent agent can provide.

Her vast experience means there is not a scenario she has not encountered and therefore is the 'go to' person with any questions any of the staff may have.

She has experience in all aspects of the land and property market and has had huge success in extending the company's expertise and knowledge in New Homes, particularly with eco-friendly energy efficient projects which have proved hugely popular. She also has a wide knowledge of shared ownerships schemes which is a popular growth area enabling many first time buyers of all ages and circumstances to get on the property ladder.

Interests

Val is married, has two grown up sons and two Labradors. She loves country walks and cruising when she can escape her busy work life!

Steven has worked for a number of agents in the West Bridgford area but he has found his home with us. He brings a wealth of experience with him and is very creative in making a deal come together. There are not many houses in West Bridgford that Steven hasn't been in and on the back of that he brings real knowledge to the table. He has a fantastic rapport with his fellow Forest fan Graham and is a larger than life character.

Interests

Most of his free time is spent with his three daughters and when the chance allows he will go down to the City ground with Graham and watch Forest.
