    SIMON REDFORD, VALUER

    RICHARD PHILLIPS, VALUER

    Time at John German? My previous experience has included working in Nottingham, Derby, Kidderminster and Calgary. I have enjoyed working at John German for 18 months.

    Favourite part of your job? Seeing a successful conclusion to a marketing plan agreed with clients.

    Top tip for buyer or seller? Do your research and make sure your agent has done so too.

    What would be your dream home? The one I should have bought in London in the early 80s.

    JUNE REEVES, SALES MANAGER

    Time at John German? I have worked at John German for 12 years now based at the Burton upon Trent Branch, working my way through the ranks from part time negotiator to Sales Manager.

    Favourite part of your job? My passion for property came prior to me working at John German when I successfully renovated and sold properties for a period of 10 years and was very keen to take the next step in helping people sell their homes and there was only one agent I wanted to work for... JG!

    Top tip for buyer or seller? Helpful hints for any clients coming to the market is always try to de-clutter as much as possible, and for buyers, please when viewing a property respect the vendors home.

    What would be your dream home? My perfect property, hard to chose but at the moment probably a detached minimalistic property by the coast with as much glass as possible. Please!

    MARIE MARKLEW, ASSISTANT SALES MANAGER

    Time at John German? Since January 2013.

    Favourite part of your job? I love all aspects of my job but completion days are the best. Seeing the vendors of the properties we have sold and handing over the keys to the new owners is such a fantastic feeling.

    Top tip for buyer or seller? My top tip for both buyers & sellers alike would be to always seek financial advice if you require a mortgage BEFORE you start to view or try to sell. The worst feeling in the world is viewing a property and falling in love with it, only to find that you can't get a mortgage. Likewise, agreeing a sale on your home, only to find that mortgage criteria has changed and your onward purchase is affected. We can always put you in touch with an Independent Financial Advisor who would be more than happy to help.

    What would be your dream home? A barn conversion with log burner for cosy winter nights in.

    Favourite part of your job? Dealing with a wide variety of clients and helping them to find their perfect home.

    Top tip for buyer or seller? To ensure you don't miss out on new properties and price reductions; sign up to our mailing list.

    What would be your dream home? Ideally a modern one-off architect designed home in a bustling city.

    EMILY BAINES, SALES NEGOTIATOR

    Time at John German? I joined John German in 2014 as a Sales Negotiator in Ashby but have recently moved to the Burton office where I thoroughly enjoy working within a very successful team.

    Favourite part of your job? As a student member of the NAEA, I am currently working towards the NFoPP Level 3 Technical Award in Sale of Residential Property.

    Top tip for buyer or seller? My top tip when selling a property is to ensure your home is clean, tidy and smells fresh so it looks it's best from the outset.

    What are your hobbies? Outside of work I spend most of my time with my cocker puppy, out with friends and family, exercising when I can and I enjoy shooting throughout the winter.

    LISA MORRIS, SALES NEGOTIATOR

    Time at John German? I came to work in the sales team at Burton in March 2015 having previously worked for John German in lettings.

    Favourite part of your job? I love negotiating on a property and agreeing a sale. It's so satisfying getting a property sold for a vendor and helping to make a purchaser's dreams come true.

    Top tip for buyer or seller? For a buyer I would say get yourself ready to buy to put yourself in the best position possible. For a seller make sure your home is welcoming, clean and tidy, just how you would want to see a property you were looking to purchase.

    What would be your dream home? If looking where I am now I'd love a four bedroom house with a spacious kitchen. If money were no object the only other place for me would be Devon / Cornwall a nice property by the coast. I love it down there.

    Time at John German? Started in October 2013.
