The Lichfield Team

    RACHEL JOHNSON (FARLA), LETTINGS MANAGER
    Where is your favourite place in Lichfield? Dam Street is a favourite spot for me in Lichfield; it's a charming quaint cobbled street that perfectly represents Lichfield's Heritage with its old-fashioned Tudor buildings, pleasant floral displays and draped bunting joining the two sides which drift lazily in the breeze as you stroll along. I think Dam Street connects the two identities of Lichfield perfectly. On one side you have the peaceful Minster pool, overlooked by Lichfield Cathedral, a place to reflect and relax, whilst at the opposite end the lively bustle of the market square which is a hive of activity nearly every day. A city of two hearts, which has certainly won mine!

    Best part of your job? I love speaking to people from all walks of life and helping them - whether that's by finding them the perfect house to make a home or by finding them the perfect tenant to rent their home. Every day in lettings is fast paced, exciting and very rewarding!

    Top tip for a landlord? Letting your property can be a great money earner, both in return and capital investment, however don't underestimate the work which goes into letting and managing a property. When choosing a letting agent look for an agent who has professional qualifications and works to a code of practice (ARLA, RICs, NAEA). Your investment is more likely to be in safe hands - which should in the long run save you your valuable time and money.

    What would be your dream home? A modern and unique new build or conversion with floor-to-ceiling windows and open plan living. As long as my family can come with me though, as they make the dream a home.

    BECKY SCARGILL (MARLA), LETTINGS ADMINISTRATOR
    Time at John German?  I joined John German Estate Agents in 2011 and have worked for both the Lettings and Sales departments. 

    Favourite part of your job?  I enjoy all aspects of letting a property. It's a fast-paced job which provides me with a great feeling of accomplishment when I find the perfect tenant for a happy landlord. Another aspect of the job I enjoy is building great relationships with our landlords and tenants, it feels good when they come back to us time and time again to re-let their properties or when they are looking for a new home.

    What would be your dream home? My dream home would be a period property with plenty of old features, open fires and somewhere to put a very big Christmas tree.

    CHARLIE HAMILTON, TENANCY MANAGER
    Time at John German? I've been here since working both in Sales and Lettings 2005.

    Favourite part of your job? Building up a good relationship with landlords and tenants alike. 

    Top tip for landlords? First impressions really do count, maximise your kerb appeal and be realistic with the rental price to avoid the property sitting empty. What would be your dream home? I've always really fancied a grand design type house, perhaps by Frank Lloyd or similar.

      SARAH HILL (MNAEA), SALES DIRECTOR
      Time at John German? I started at John German around 1998.

      Where is your favourite place in Lichfield? I love walking through The Three Spires centre in Lichfield with its abundance of local and high street stores, friendly customer service and a warm welcome mingled with tasty bakeries, restaurants and relaxing coffee shops. A warm community feel is prominent in this bustling market town. It caters for all needs, from the youngest to the eldest. We always have exciting new enterprises moving into Lichfield giving shoppers and visitors something new to see and buy. It's very hard to resist the temptation to spend. 

      Best part of your job? Winning the instruction and knowing the vendors trust and they are confident in the knowledge we will sell their home for them. To make it as stress free as possible, we have a brilliant support team in the sales progression department, which is vital to ensuring a sale goes through smoothly. Lichfield is a small town and we regularly bump in to happy vendors and purchasers which makes the job very rewarding. 

      Top tip for buyer or seller? 

      Buyers - make sure finances are in order before purchasing a property, and take time to look at plenty of properties, buyers sometimes do not buy want they originally thought they would want to, it's a surprising world. 

      Sellers - Before going on the market, take time to start at your front door, and walk through your home as a purchaser might do, suddenly you will see or smell things that originally you didn't, quite scary but really useful to do and can make the difference to a purchaser viewing your home for the first time.

      What would be your dream home? I don't really have a dream home, just love a happy home, always hope I will be able to travel a lot more when I retire, so maybe a camper van could be mine.

      NICK POLLITT, VALUER
      Time at John German? I joined John German in 1998/99 when JG acquired my business (Uptons in Lichfield).

      Where is your favourite place in Lichfield? First thing in the morning at The Bore St. Bakery. That fresh bread smell, wonderful friendly service, great attitude and a credit to Lichfield. What a way to start the day! 

      Best part of your job? Visiting interesting property, establishing a good relationship with new clients, agreeing a sale that makes the buyer and the seller happy. 

      Top tip for buyer or seller? 

      Seller: Presentation is vital!  
      Buyer: Establish a good rapport with the estate agent. 

      What would be your dream home? 3 bedroom detached barn with rural views and a 6 car garage in Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Somerset or South Devon.

      MARTIN ASHLEIGH, VALUER
      Time at John German? I joined John German Estate Agents in 2015.

      Where is your favourite place in Lichfield?One of my favourite places in Lichfield is the old market place where the bustling atmosphere and colourful stalls are a lively meeting place for loyal traders and bargain-loving locals - it's just not the same when shopping on Amazon!

      Best part of your job? Meeting such a wide and varied range of people with the shared goal of selling or buying a property or both. 

      Top tip for buyer or seller? Never underestimate the importance of good property presentation and first impressions.

      What would be your dream home? An English country cottage with gardens to match, which is within walking distance of the coast.

      FIONA CLOUGHER, SALES NEGOTIATOR
      Time at John German? I started at John German in January 2018. We bought from JG in 2015 and were so impressed with the service I decided I needed to work for them! I'm enjoying getting stuck into the area as there are some wonderful properties in Lichfield! 

      Where is your favourite place in Lichfield? One of the things I love most about Lichfield is the variety of architecture in the city, with its many gorgeous old buildings and cobbled streets. I have been visiting Lichfield since I was a child, with some of my loveliest memories investigating historical buildings with my grandparents, including the gothic architecture of the iconic Lichfield Cathedral, with the occasional medieval fair set in its grounds! I love the area around the Cathedral, where it is so quiet, peaceful and green. It is just perfect for admiring beautiful buildings or reading a book in the sunshine. 

      Best part of your job? Getting to know new purchasers and vendors, hearing happy clients and letting people know of accepted offers! It's a stressful process for buyers and sellers so it's lovely to brighten someone's day! 

      Top tip for buyer or seller? Try to be in the best buying position possible when you find the house you fall in love with, so that you won't be disappointed! 

      What would be your dream home? I have many dream homes! But at the moment I would go for a lovely renovated 3-4 bedroom farmhouse with plenty of outdoor space so I could keep some dogs, ducks and donkeys!

      LUCY BECK, SALES NEGOTIATOR
      Time at John German? I have been with the team at Lichfield since the beginning of 2018. Although I am new to John German, I have been in the industry for the past 5 years and I am really looking forward to continuing my journey here.

      Where is your favourite place in Lichfield? Stowe Pool is a strikingly beautiful place to walk or jog around and offers such a peaceful atmosphere, it would be a shame to not to take full advantage! I enjoy strolling around the pool whilst taking in the views of the historic cathedral. It is interestingly one mile in circumference, and, a little-known fact, a reservoir for Lichfield City. I often see people walking dogs, feeding the ducks and even fishing. I would highly recommend a visit! 

      Best part of your job? I would say that my favourite part of my job would be getting to know new people and helping them find their dream home. 

      Top tip for buyer or seller? My top tip for buyers would be to keep an open mind when viewing. Look past the décor and imagine what the property would be like after you've put your own stamp on it.

      What would be your dream home? My dream home would be a cottage in a quiet village with a country pub and farm shop.

      CAROLINE MORRIS, ACCOMPANIED VIEWER
      Time at John German? I started here in 2014.

      Where is your favourite place in Lichfield? Tudor House, I love this fabulous building. With it being over 500 years old, it is a real step back in time and a very peaceful place to enjoy an afternoon tea or champagne brunch. A true jewel in Lichfield's crown!

      Best part of your job? Viewing houses with lovely clients. 

      Top tip for buyer or seller? Declutter before you move, it's the best thing - all those things you never use!! 

      What would be your dream home? My own with the mortgage paid off! It's a fab house, central to town and got everything going for it.

        I wanted to write to say Thank You for all of your help and advice in selling The Long Barn.
