Tony was born and raised in Fulham, London but his ties to Brighton and Hove go all the way back to holidays spent here with his grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins while he was still at school.
Today, Tony - 51 years married to wife Georgina - and his family have lived in Hove for nearly 40 years. "Estate agency isn't just about property," says Tony. "It's about people, and it's great to be working locally in Hove and helping Marc to run the business - although sometimes I have to bite my tongue and remember who's the boss!"
Tony began his career in the early 1960s, working in an estate agents opposite Harrods in London. After a while, he transitioned into property management and later investment/development when he worked with London-based property companies like Taylor Woodrow (co-incidentally the company that developed Churchill Square in Brighton).
During this time, he qualified as a chartered surveyor, worked in London and Lewes before joining a Chichester-based construction and development firm where he remained for 30 years, rising all the way up to Land and Property Director for the entire firm. These days he's returned to his estate agency roots in his adopted home town of Hove, working alongside his son Marc.
