      PHILLIP SANDBACH (MNAEA), DIRECTOR & VALUER

      Time at John German? Joined John German in 1998 at the Burton office and have worked in Estate Agency since leaving school.

      Favourite part of your job? We sell properties but this business is all about people, working with our clients to achieve a sale and seeing them move home gives tremendous satisfaction, more so, if difficulties have to be overcome along the way.

      Top tip for buyer or seller?Seller: Do your research on Agents before instructing one, it's not all about a low fee!!Buyer: Yes, buy with your head but let your heart have a say too!

      What would be your dream home? A contemporary glass and steel home overlooking an estuary.

      JAMES CARDON (MNAEA) VALUER / SALES NEGOTIATOR

      Favourite part of your job? I enjoy the many varied aspects of my job, but the most satisfying of all is working closely with clients to understand their needs and help them to find their dream home.

      Top tip for buyer or seller? If you are looking to buy, it is essential to seek financial advice before you go out viewing properties - getting a mortgage can be one of the biggest challenges when it comes to buying a property and its good to know that you can afford a property before you fall in love with it. When selling, take time and choose your agent carefully - a low fee may be attractive but having an agent that keeps you updated and works with you every step of the way can take a lot of stress out of the process.

      What would be your dream home? A spacious country cottage on the coast, within easy walking distance of the beach.

      Favourite part of your job? Handing over keys to a new owner, knowing you have helped make their dreams come true.

      Top tip for buyer or seller? My top tip when selling a property is to ensure your home is clean, tidy and smells fresh so it looks it's best from the outset. 

      What are your hobbies? Outside of work I spend most of my time with my cocker puppy, out with friends and family, exercising when I can and I enjoy shooting throughout the winter.

      LISA MORRIS, SALES NEGOTIATOR

      Time at John German? I came to work in the sales team at Burton in March 2015 having previously worked for John German in lettings.

      Favourite part of your job? I love negotiating on a property and agreeing a sale. It's so satisfying getting a property sold for a vendor and helping to make a purchaser's dreams come true.

      Top tip for buyer or seller? For a buyer I would say get yourself ready to buy to put yourself in the best position possible. For a seller make sure your home is welcoming, clean and tidy, just how you would want to see a property you were looking to purchase.

      What would be your dream home? If looking where I am now I'd love a four bedroom house with a spacious kitchen. If money were no object the only other place for me would be Devon / Cornwall a nice property by the coast. I love it down there.

      CHARLOTTE HARDY, SALES PROGRESSION ADMINISTRATOR
      Top tip for buyer or seller?

      Buyer: Try to go in with an open mind. Try to imagine a blank canvas and visualize your belongings in there as not everyone has the same taste so try to look through other peoples possessions. 

      Seller: Don't be disheartened if after a viewing people don't want to proceed. The right buyer will come along! Try to keep the house as minimalistic as possible to help people see the room and space better.

      What would be your dream home? Somewhere around the south coast with a sea view. One day maybe!
