    David Cowburn Senior 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'm 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.

    Richard Furnival Agricultural Partner

    Background: I'm a dairy farmer's son from North Shropshire, my elder brother still runs the family farm, so the rural life has always been in my blood, however I was never cut out to milk cows 7 days a week so I thought being a rural chartered surveyor and auctioneer was the next best thing. I studied Rural Land Management at the University of Reading and having trained and practised in East Yorkshire and Cheshire, I moved to Lancashire in 1999, becoming a Partner in Armitstead Barnett in 2002. I have been a Member of the RICS since 1997 and Fellow of the CAAV since 1998. I was President of the Lancashire Association of Agricultural Valuers in 2012 and have recently been appointed as a CAAV examiner.

    My Role: I manage the Rural Professional side of the business representing and acting for a large number of individual farmer clients and landowners. I am also involved in both agricultural and rural property sectors, from selling small parcels of land to complete Farms. My days are generally spent undertaking valuations for a wide variety of uses, compensation claims for pipeline and utilities, Renewable Energy advice, Agricultural tenancy matters, range of rural property matters, plus dealing with the usual office management and financial matters. I am also an appointed auctioneer for Brockholes Arms Auction Mart on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings selling Clean, Store and Dairy Cattle and Barren Cows. I also conduct On Farm Dispersal sales throughout the year.

    Leeann Stott Rentals Co-ordinator

    Background: I have lived with my family in St Michaels my whole life and I have just bought my first house in the village.  I have been working within customer services for seven years starting my working life at Great Eccleston Health Centre as part of the Administration Team, I then moved to BT where I worked on a support team for an online service.  I joined Armitstead Barnett in the sales team in May 2012 with a strong interest in the property industry.  After working in the sales team for three years my position gradually moved towards dealing with the rental properties which lead to my current role as Rentals Co-ordinator. 

    My Role: The rentals department is very fast moving and no two days are the same.  I deal with a large number of managed properties which require attention each day to ensure the properties are looked after and all inspections are in order.   I also deal with Let Only properties ensuring we find suitable tenants that the landlords feel comfortable with.  Letting a property can be a challenging task and now more than ever there are strict regulations to follow.  I am especially interested in the rentals market and hope to become a member of ARLA this year after completing my 3rd level of qualifications.

    Wendy Smyth Senior Sales Negotiator

    Background: I was born and bred in Longridge and had a brief spell in Scotland after I was married. Once my daughter came along, Lancashire soon called me back and I moved back to Longridge. After leaving school I started work in retail and spent over 15 years in retail management working for household names such as T J Hughes and T K Maxx. I took a career change in 2006 and started at a high street estate agent learning the ropes and building my knowledge of the industry.

    My Role: I work on the sales team as a negotiator and deal with most of the sales progression which can be quite stressful at time but very rewarding when I get to have keys over to new owner. I love assisting people with the process as most people don't buy and sell houses everyday so it can be quite an emotional process. I enjoy all parts of the job and every day is different.
