    Daniella Williams, Lettings Consultant
    Daniella's earliest memories of the real estate industry is being in her parents busy commercial property agents in Leigh-on-sea from the young age of eight, folding letters, stuffing envelopes and photocopying property details. Their office was a vibrant hive of activity and she loved being part of it.As an adult she joined a large corporate agency as a Junior Negotiator in their Benfleet office, where she trained and acquired her basic knowledge. She later moved to a small independent Agency in Benfleet where she joined her husband as a very successful team offering the best in customer service and contact ability the industry had ever seen at that point.They then took the next step of opening their own Agency and made their mark on the Benfleet area for over five years helping over 300 families move in and out of the SS7 postcode, priding themselves on their level of repeat business and word of mouth referrals, that came from satisfied clients who came to us for help and advice.  Daniella has now returned after five years raising her son Johnny, Daniella says "The buying and selling of real estate is in my blood I've grown up on it and now have been offered this exciting opportunity to join Williams and Donovan's Benfleet office and I'm once again looking forward to being part of this experienced sales and letting team, I'm hoping to bring to it my extensive knowledge of the business and area, my dogged determination, and real empathy and love for this industry."
