      Time at John German? Since December 2013. 

      Best part of your job? Giving the good news that someone offer has been accepted. 

      Top tip for buyer or seller? In real life, a property looks a lot different and you could be missing out on your dream home if you discount it from just seeing the pictures alone. Be opened minded, if it's in your price range, in an area you want and has the space you need, book a viewing!

      CHARLOTTE LOCKHART, SALES NEGOTIATOR
      Time at John German?  I've recently started at John German; however, I have worked in estate agency for many years, ever since I left colleague, and have always had a passion for property. 

      Best part of your job? The best part of my job is meeting great people and ensuring we find them a property they love! It's very rewarding helping people buy and sell their homes. 

      Top tip for buyer or seller? Buyer - Prepare yourself financially before viewing properties. When you do find the property you want, you'll be ready to make an offer and therefore less likely to miss out on your dream home. Seller - Any concerns or worries you may have about selling and moving, explain and talk through these with your estate agent and let them help and guide you through the process. 

      What would be your dream home? My dream home would be a beautiful house within a natural setting surrounded by lots of wonderful trees.

      BARRY ANDERSON, ACCOMPANIED VIEWER
      What is your background? My career was within aero engineering, then whilst in retirement I was approached by John German for the role as Accompanied Viewing Representative. It is a role that I thought would last a few months but I'm still here over 12 years on! What I enjoy the most is meeting different people every day and being able to offer advice on the housing market.

      Top tip for buyer or seller: For those selling, my advice would be to leave the viewings to the estate agent. Buyers tend to relax more with a third party and this helps prevent any awkwardness between yourself and the buyer. Plus a good agent will have the skills to point out all the plus points of your home and answer any difficult question asked.

      What would be your dream home? A nice four bedroom detached house overlooking the Ocean on the Almafi Coast.
