    Trisha Christophers
    Like my husband Alan I was born in Helston and I supported him in starting Christophers estate agency in 2002. From the begining I worked in a part time capacity and in 2004 I became full time. I am mainly responsible for the accounts and contacting prospective purchasers. I attended Halwin Primary school in Porkellis then Helston Comprehensive and undertook further education under the University of Plymouth studying Special Educational Needs graduating in 2003, this was followed by a BA Hons degree in Education from the University of Worcester graduating in 2013.

    I was previously employed in the sales industry and also worked in interior design. This has complemented the house sales business immensely and gave me an interest in house staging which has proved to be particularly useful to encourage extra viewings. Helston Flora Day is extremely important to me and in 2005 I was honoured to be chosen to be part of the leading set for the Midday Dance. What made it even better was that both of my children were playing in Helston Town band a few yards ahead of me. My hobbies include painting and textiles using the beautiful scenery around Helston and the coastal areas for inspirational ideas.

    I was born and still live in the coastal village of Mullion. I am married to Lisa and have two grown up children, Gemma and Ben and have been blessed to have two grandsons and two granddaughters.My hobbies are cricket and football and in my spare time I coach the youngsters of The Lizard peninsula cricket at Mullion cricket club along with running the under 15s team and on occasions I still turn out for the village seconds on a Saturday. If I am not found down at the club I am on the coastal footpath or on Dartmoor walking my two dogs Freddie (Flintoff) and Lilly.When I left school I worked at the Polurrian hotel where I eventually became manager but in 1997 I decided it was time for a career change so I joined a corporate estate agency and I worked with Alan Christophers for 5 years, I was delighted when Alan and Patricia announced that they were setting up Christophers and offered me the job as branch manager in Mullion.

    I have been exceptionally lucky to work for such great employers who allow us, the staff, to use the best of our abilities to ensure our clients are given the best advice with their interests our absolute priority.We do not sell mortgages/finance or conveyancing, just houses through basic old fashioned estate agency! I have been very proud and privileged to work from our Mullion office which covers the whole of The Lizard peninsula and thank everyone for all there support and trust which has been shown to me over the past years.

    I have worked at Christophers since November 2006 when I was invited to join the expanding team. I have always been interested in property and I love meeting people: so this job combines both and I consider myself very fortunate to have the opportunity of meeting so many lovely people while working in such a beautiful place.I moved to Porthleven from Helston on my 3rd birthday and grew up in the village, one of my grandparents was a fisherman and one a farmer, so I think it's fair to say my roots are truly 'Cornish'. The local knowledge I have, has proved to be invaluable to prospective purchasers and vendors alike.

    I am married to Steve and have a grown up daughter and son. In my leisure time I love spending time with my family, walking our dog across the cliffs; especially on a windy day when you can 'blow the cobwebs away', kayaking around our beautiful coastline, swimming, meeting up with friends, listening to music, cooking, dancing and reading. I have taken part in various crazy charity fund raising activities from pushing a car from Helston to Penzance, cycling 36 miles in the pouring rain and howling wind as well as power walking a marathon around London in the middle of the night!In my work I always try to remember that I am not dealing with houses but peoples HOMES!

    I have lived and worked in Helston for most of my life and was educated locally. I am married to Louise and have two young children. I joined Christophers in 2011 having worked for another local Cornish Company for 26 years in various sales environments. In this time I have amassed a wealth of knowledge which I now bring to the Christophers name.I like the outdoors whether it being walking, cycling or enjoying all that our beautiful County offers. I am also a big sports fan - none more so than the glorious Manchester United, which I hope will not deter any prospective clients!I am very enthusiastic and pride myself on delivering the highest standards of customer service.

    I was born and brought up in Porthleven and moved into Helston in 2004. I worked for a solicitors in Falmouth for two years then a position in a local solicitors in Helston came up and I worked for them for a further two years. I left the solicitors to have my daughter and to concentrate on being a mum. In the new year of 2010 I was itching to go back to work and I joined Christophers in the February.
     
    As I am from Porthleven I know the village very well and have strong local knowledge which I am pleased to pass on to our clients..I enjoy spending time with my family, socialising, shopping and currently training for the Brighton marathon 2017!

    I joined Christophers Estate Agents in October 2011 after returning to Cornwall from University. I grew up in Porthleven and attended Porthleven and Helston School where I had the honour of being Head Boy. I have always had an interest in property and am passionate about the area in which I live. I was excited about joining Christophers at such an exciting time for the company.Outside of estate agency my main love is music and have played for many local Brass Bands as well as School and County Ensembles.

    In 2006 I went to Birmingham Conservatoire to study musical composition where I achieved a first class honours degree. In 2010 I continued my studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London where I was awarded a Masters degree in Music. My music has been performed at various venues across the country including Symphony Hall, Birmingham, the Wigmore Hall and the Royal Albert Hall, London.

    Following our move to Cornwall from Sussex in 2007, my husband Steve and I have grown to love the way of life here and enjoy all the delights that it has to offer. I have always taken a very keen interest in property and worked for nearly 4 years for a residential letting agency in Helston and then a short period in the conveyancing department in a Helston solicitors office.

    I started working for Christophers in April 2012 in the Mullion office and have enjoyed getting to know the properties on the Lizard whether it be a modern 3 bedroom semi or a traditional Cornish cottage. When not working I spend as much time as possible walking the coast path, on the beach and exploring this beautiful part of the word.

    I spent most of my childhood in St Keverne attending the local school and then Helston Comprehensive. Following this I went on to further education at Camborne College.Having worked in the building trade for many years and moving home numerous times it gave me a passion for properties. I decided to make the most of this enthusiasm by seeking employment in estate agency.

    I secured a position with Christophers in 2007.I now live in Helston with my daughter who shares my interest in properties and is interested in interior design. My favourite activities, other than watching house programmes, include regular sessions at the gym, walking, cinema and chilling out with family and friends.

    Being brought up in Porthleven and living there for 19 years I attended schools in both Porthleven and Helston and went on to further education at Camborne College. I started my Estate Agency career in 1994 and I have worked for Christophers Estate Agents since it all began in 2002. Having taken on various rolls in all the offices. I  now divide my time between the Mullion and Helston Offices.

    I now live in Helston with my husband Chris who is in the Royal Navy and we have two lovely children. We have moved house several times in the last ten years as doing this job does give you itchy feet seeing all the wonderful properties. We are now settled in our family home which we intend to stay in as we have climbed the ladder as far as we can go for now. I enjoy socialising, walking, reading and spending time with my family.

    Alan Christophers
    I was born in Helston and at the age of two moved to Newlyn. I returned to Helston just after I failed my eleven plus and attended secondary school there. I started in estate agency in 1977 and trained to be a surveyor.I was one of the original team at Christophers alongside my wife Patricia , Garry and Sheila without whose support and help the company would not have started.

    I have two children and I am fortunate to combine my two main hobbies of sport and photograpy with my pictures of Helston teams appearing form time to time in the local press. I have followed Manchester United since 1966. In my younger years I played cricket and football for Helston. I enjoy listening to music particularly The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Paul Simon and Coldplay.I am very lucky to have worked alongside so many dedicated, professional, successful and genuinely nice colleagues in my time with Christophers Estate Agents.
