    Dawn Arnold, Sales Property Consultant
    My career began in the Estate Agency industry from the tender age of 17 working for various corporate companies before joining Brown and Brand. This was in September 2009 after taking some time out traveling around Australia enjoying the sunshine and lifestyle. I refer to my colleagues as my work family as we all get on so well. The best part of the job is you get to meet lots of different people and my aim is to make sure everyone's move goes as smoothly as possible, advising clients in a professional manner ensuring they achieve the best possible price. In my spare time I enjoy socialising with friends and I am also a huge animal lover so if I am on an appointment and the owners have pets, my day gets that little bit better.

    Rebecca Schofield, Administrator/secretary
    Rebecca joined our sales team in early 2015, and is a part time working mum with two young children at home, so is excellent at multi-tasking. She can't really be missed in the office with her big curly hair which tends to change colour most weeks! Her role is team administrator/secretary in our busy sales dept, and when she's not in she likes to think the office falls apart without her. In her spare time she likes to keep fit, has a real interest in art & crafts items and plays the piano.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      2 bedroom bungalow in Thundersley, Essex


      " Brown and Brand were recommended to me by a neighbour. This and their competitive terms convinced me to market the bungalow with them under sole agency. And I am so glad that I did. From the first call to arrange an appointment to the final completion they were of course professional but they were also approachable and friendly and could not do enough to help me through the difficult process of selling my late mother's property. They kept me fully informed at all times and provided regular updates and advice to make the process smooth and as painless as possible. I cannot recommend them highly enough. "

    • Seller Testimonial

      3 bed semi-detached house. Hadleigh


      " Brown and Brand were professional and helpful, they listened to the type of property I was looking for and the first property they sent me to was perfect. They have kept me updated the whole way through the sale. Highly recommended. "
    • Seller Testimonial

      2 bed mid terrace House in hadleigh


      " We bought our house through Brown and Brand in 2010 and had a great service from Dawn that we wanted to use them again when it came to selling the house and it has been great using then again, this time as a seller. "    Dawn was great as was Mike, sold the house before it even went on right move. When things got complicated Dawn stepped in and took control negotiating between solicitors and other agents/buyers.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Semi-detached bungalow situated in Benfleet, Essex


      " The sale of my late mother's bungalow was complicated, but the team at Brown and Brand worked every step of the way to make it seamless and possible. As I live in Canada, Paul Brand has been a remarkable resource for me for over ten years, and has patiently advised and helped with many aspects of maintaining and dealing with a property, long distance. When it came to selling, there is no other team I would have considered to sell the bungalow. Mike Hopkins did an outstanding job marketing and selling the property (with help from Dawn). This was achieved in a very short time-frame with a sale at full asking price. At all times, the team are professional, approachable and diligent. They really know what they are doing and kept me updated every step of the way. More importantly, they took the time to understand some of the difficulties surrounding the sale, and always brought a smile to my face with their good humour. To say I danced a HAPPY DANCE on completion of the sale, is an understatement. I thoroughly recommend Brown and Brand and count myself so very fortunate to have had their team on my side. When I am next in England, I am looking forward to thanking them in person. "

      3 bed semi detached in Hadleigh Essex


      " I wasn't going to use and estate agent at first and only wanted a valuation, but was extremely impressed with the presentation and information given by the agent that I decided to go with them. I am sure glad I did as the first sale fell through but they pulled out all the stops to get another sale as quickly as possible. If I did ever need and estate agent in the future they would be my first port of call. "

      Older, 4 bed detached in quiet, end of cul de sac location in Essex.


      " Having had good service from Brown and Brand in the past, we chose them as letting agents for the rental of our property and then they dealt with the sale.We found the sales team in particular to be outstanding. They knew their target customers, obtained lots of viewings and the house was sold quite quickly.Throughout a rather difficult transaction, they kept us fully informed at all times by phone and email, negotiated tirelessly with the legal profession and updated, not just us, but our buyers and THEIR buyers too.If ever one member of the team was out of office, there was always somebody else fully aware of our case and ready to step in seamlessly. It was truly professional teamwork - very reassuring."

      " Excellent professional service received at all times throughout my dealings with the Brown and Brand team. Even though I was a buyer through them, not a seller, I was regularly updated on the progress of my purchase. I have moved house a number of tines over the years - these are one of the best and I would recommend them wholeheartedly. "
