    David Cowburn Partner

    Background: I was born into a farming family, my grandad and uncle both ran farms, and that's where I worked during my school holidays. I've always wanted to be part of the industry and my mum said I talked so much that I'd be great at the auctions. I took a surveying course at Harper Adams Agricultural College and have worked in land management for a utilities company, in a private practice in Cheshire and in a commercial firm in Manchester before joining Armitstead Barnett as a partner in 2000. I have represented both individuals and companies alike and tackled situations from every point of view.

    My Role: As senior partner I am responsible for the overall running of the firm although I do have assistance via the Practice Manager.  I also head up the South Lancashire office and property agency and development work overall.  I really enjoy looking at the strategic future of the firm and identifying our route to achieving our next goal. I have been awarded the designation FRICS which means I am a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

My Role: I am training to become a chartered surveyor (MRICS) I am hoping to have this qualification completed by 2018. I get involved in a variety of jobs expanding my knowledge, I primarily work alongside David Cowburn 
    Interesting Fact: Before starting at Armitstead Barnett in October 2015 I worked on super yachts in the Mediterranean for wealthy owners.

    Gillian Mathews South Lancs Agency Coordinator

    Background: After graduating from Coventry University with a BA Hons in Geographical Studies I decided to 'temporarily' get into estate agency .... Almost 22 years on and I'm still here ! . During this time I've worked extensively throughout Lancashire for 3 large agents.

    My Role: My role here sees me involved in everything from the initial valuation enquiry , right through to completion and the 'key release '- plus everything that happens in between . What I love about my job is primarily the variety - no two days are ever exactly the same . I also love dealing with people - I get great satisfaction from a happy client and a 'job well done ' .
