Julie Gordon MNAEA - Director
My early career was quite varied beginning with working for a local authority in South Wales, where I dealt mainly with Right to Buy. I spent some years with British Airways working my way through to a position as Trainer before leaving to start a family. Over a period of time while my children were young, my roles varied from sales and admin to livery yard hand and even bridal makeup artistry! I took on prominent roles within voluntary groups, becoming the chairwoman of the large primary school PTA for some years before we left Berkshire. Like many people, we couldn't wait for an opportunity to move to the West Country and we did that in 2002, when we were lucky enough to acquire a building plot in the lovely village of Thorncombe (West Dorset) and carried out a "self-build", where we remain very happily. It was in 2003 that Estate Agency grabbed me and I realised that I had found my perfect role. I went quickly from part time to full time and began working for myself about 3 years later.
Gordon and Rumsby was born in January 2009 with my then business partner, Susan. Due to personal commitments, Susan stepped down from the business in 2010 but was happy for me to retain the name as we had started to become established even in that short space of time. In 2012, I opened the office in Colyton, moving to larger premises in 2014, from where we currently operate. My philosophy is do the best job I can for my client. We specialise in being considerate, fair, friendly and professional and are developing a strong reputation, which is why much of our business comes through recommendation.
