      JAMES MORGAN (MRICS MNAEA) DIRECTOR

      Time at John German? I first joined JG in the Ashby office as a Trainee Land Agent in 1981 where I qualified as a Chartered Surveyor a year later. After 10 years in various parts of the country I moved to JG Stafford office to head up the Residential Estate Agency and Valuation department where I stayed until we opened in Uttoxeter in 2004. I now work from Ashbourne and Uttoxeter combining with my role as Managing Director.

      Favourite part of your job? Despite how long I have been doing it, I get huge satisfaction from doing a deal and achieving a great result for a Client. It is great when Client's follow your advice and the result achieved match or exceed every ones' expectations.

      Top tip for buyer or seller? When Selling it is vital to prepare well to avoid unnecessary delays and avoidable issues spoiling the sale in the final stages of the deal. So apart from spending time getting the house to look really good when going on the market, it is really worth while reviewing the condition of the house, sorting out those teething problems which will deter Buyers and create a plethora of damning words from Surveyors and ensure all the appropriate certificates and other paperwork is readily available for your Solicitor.

      What would be your dream home? I am trying to build my own at present so time will tell but I have been very lucky to live in a beautiful Georgian property for the last 26 years where my family have grown up and a house I love and shall miss very much. However as many of our Clients find, downsizing is an inevitability for most of us - it's good for Estate Agents too!

      STUART BENNET (MNAEA), SALES DIRECTOR

      Time at John German? I have managed the Ashbourne branch since 2012 and have been in Estate Agency for 20 years now.

      Favourite part of your job? Valuing houses has always been interesting especially with the rural properties. I particularly enjoy organising a successful agency and find it extremely rewarding being able to guide and advise our clients through the marketing of their home.

      NICK SAMWAYS, SALES NEGOTIATOR
      Favourite part of your job? I enjoy meeting people and viewing all the varying types of property.

      Top tip for buyer or seller? If you are selling go with an estate agent who is established and knows the local area. For buyers; have a list of the key criteria you are looking for but be prepared to compromise!

      What would be your dream home? A barn conversion with a mix of contemporary and traditional features and clever in-built technology.

      LINDA PARTLETT, SALES NEGOTIATOR
      Favourite part of your job? Finding a client's dream home.

      Top tip for buyer or seller? Have an open mind. Try not to dismiss a property based on what you see on the internet, the reality can be completely different.

      What would be your dream home? A place in Barbados overlooking the beach where I can walk straight outside and into the sea. I'd need to be retired though, otherwise the commute would be too much!

      EMMA HARRISON, SALES NEGOTIATOR
      Favourite part of your job ? I love everything about my job from meeting new people to agreeing sales. The best thing is seeing the smiles on clients faces and knowing we have done our job!

      Top tip for buyer or seller? For buyers- don't discount properties by photos, go and view as your thoughts can soon change and you might be surprised. For sellers - choose an agent with a great reputation, great local knowledge and will provide you with the highest level of customer service and of course that means choosing John German! 

      What would be your dream home? A detached home with a fabulous modern living kitchen and great outdoor space to entertain from.
