I have lived in the South Hams for the last 25 years, where I attended King Edward VI Community College in Totnes. After graduating from Bournemouth University with a BA Hons in Law and Finance, I moved back to Devon, where I joined a corporate Estate Agent in Totnes. It was here that I discovered my passion for the property industry and also where I met Danielle. In 2015 we moved to an independent agent and assisted in setting up and running their flagship office in Salcombe. After several years in Salcombe, having gained a huge amount of experience and knowledge, we made the exciting decision to take the next step and go into partnership together, and so Modern Move was born.

  • Favourite Place in Devon – Anywhere on Dartmoor, I can also be found on a regular basis at Start Point, and I love The Sharpham Estate … There are just too many to choose!
  • Pets Name – I have a Lakeland Terrier called Bilbo, who can be found on a daily basis working hard in the Modern Move office.
  • Favourite Thing About Being An Estate Agent – Helping people find their dream home
  • Favourite Beach – Bigbury on Sea, in the winter it is the perfect place to walk the dog, although make sure it is low tide!
  • Favourite Holiday Destination – The Lake District, it is not very tropical and you do have to take your hiking boots, but I love it!

Having grown up and attended school within the South Hams, I like to consider myself a local. For many years I worked for a corporate Estate Agent, giving me a wealth of knowledge within the property industry. Most recently, I had the opportunity to help set up a flagship waterside office in Salcombe alongside Portia, which gained us invaluable experience. I am married to a Joiner and grew up with parents that are keen renovators, so I have developed an eye for perfection. In my spare time I like to ride, go clay pigeon shooting, and spend time on our family farm with my Spaniel ‘Whiskey’.

  • Favourite Place In Devon – Dartmoor, especially in the winter, there is nothing better than Dartmoor with a fresh coating of snow!
  • Pets Name – I have a working Sprocker Spaniel called Whiskey, and a very large fluffy Tom Cat called Mr Moo.
  • Favourite Thing About Being An Estate Agent – I have a passion for historic architecture, so I really enjoying visiting all the unique and quirky character properties.
  • Favourite Beach – Both Bantham and South Milton, it is so hard to decide!
  • Favourite Holiday Destination – America, I was lucky enough to spend a year out there working, and would love to go back again when I get the time.
