    Claire Tythcott - Manager 
    I joined Chequers in June 2021 after working for six years at an alternative agent in Barnstaple. I was delighted to join Chequers and work alongside Town & Country Financial Advisers to help our clients grow their financial futures. I am a determined and motivated team leader here in Barnstaple, looking to achieve the best in everything that I do and I look forward to the opportunity of working with many more homeowners, investors and first-time buyers in the future.┐ Having lived in the area all of my life I have a wealth of knowledge of the County. I live on my parent's dairy and sheep farm in the Devon rolling countryside and have had my own flock of rare breed sheep for many years. In my spare time, I am a very active member of the National Federation of Young Farmers.

    Sophie Price - Sales Negotiator / Valuer
    I joined Chequers in early 2022 after working for over six years at an alternative agent who covered all of the West Country. I am delighted to join Chequers as a sales negotiator and valuer, furthering my career in the property industry. I have over 10 years experience of 'all things property' from holiday cottage management across the South West to lettings, with the majority┐being in property sales in and around the Bideford area. As a hard-working, friendly and driven individual I look forward to working with our clients in the future. My parents moved to Barnstaple, leaving the busy London life behind, when I was 7 years old and I'm so pleased that they did! Growing up surrounded by rolling countryside, beautiful beaches and warm-hearted communities I continue to appreciate and promote our spectacular surroundings.┐
