    Jonathan Waters

    Born on the Australian estate and has lived in the East Ipswich area all his life, you can't get much more local than that. He was educated at Britannia Primary school, Northgate Grammar School as well as the Suffolk College and over the years he has witnessed massive change and development in the East Ipswich area. Well qualified for entry into the estate agency profession, having previously worked in the planning department at Suffolk Coastal District Council dealing with the original planning applications for the very same housing developments that are now so much a part of the East Ipswich & villages area. Having worked for several years for a large corporate estate agency in Ipswich he became disillusioned with their true objectives and started his own business in 1991/92 to offer a level of customer and client service that cannot possibly be matched by a much larger company. His lifelong campaign to see the public having a much higher opinion of the estate agency profession has seen Jonathan actively involved in new legislation and training and the qualification of his staff. He has been Chairman of the Guild of Independent Estate Agents and Chairman of the North East Essex Consumers and House Moving Panel.

    Although he manages the occasional game of golf as a member at Rushmere, these days Jonathan devotes much of his limited spare time to his young family.

    Jayne Staff, Manager

    Having always worked in sales and in the estate agency profession, some of this time has been spent with larger, corporate estate agents including branch support and management locally. Like many that have come to join the team here, Jayne became disillusioned within a corporate estate agency preferring the much higher level of professional and personal service that an independent is able to offer.

    Jayne has two daughters Gemma and Zara. She spends most of her spare time renovating her cottage.

    Julie Clennell, Sales Negotiator

    What Julie doesn't know about the Ipswich housing market probably isn't worth knowing having worked through the highs and lows of the housing market over the last 35 years.

    Julie now operates our highly successful Buttermarket office and her friendly, professional nature together with her wealth of knowledge means she is a key member of our sales team.

    Living locally with her husband, Julie enjoys spending time with her family.

    Charmaine Sayer will run the company's Martlesham office and comes with over eight years experience. She has lived and worked in Ipswich all her life and joined the industry after a long spell in travel agency. Charmaine has worked in both the sales and lettings side of estate agency, both from the Ipswich town centre area and local office sin Kesgrave and Martelsham so was therefore the ideal candidate to expand operations from our Martlesham office in the IP5 area. The expansion of the Martlesham Heath office will also see the company spreading into the towns of both Woodbridge and Felixstowe for both sales and rentals.
