    RACHEL JOHNSON (FARLA), LETTINGS MANAGER
    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
    I joined John German Estate Agents in 2011 and have worked for both the Lettings and Sales departments.

    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.

      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 25 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!

      MATT SLATER (MNAEA), BRANCH MANAGER 

      Time at John German? I've worked in the Estate Agency industry for almost 20 years and have been with John German for over 13 years at the Burton upon Trent, Stafford and now Uttoxeter office.

      Favourite part of your job? I'm extremely focused on providing a high standard of customer service while achieving the best possible price for my clients. I thoroughly enjoy seeing the diverse range of properties we sell in Uttoxeter, and helping people through the home selling/buying process where every sale is slightly different.

      What are your favourite hobbies? Outside of work I enjoy watching all kinds of sports have 'retired' from playing, though I do enjoy the odd round of golf. I also enjoy walking in the Peak District and socialising with my friends and family.

      DEBBIE LYCETT, SALES NEGOTIATOR

      Time at John German? I have been with John German in Uttoxeter since 2011.

      Favourite part of your job? My favourite part of the job is when we have a new house for sale and immediately know of a waiting buyer who will snap it up.

      Top tip for buyer or seller? My advice to anyone selling a property would be present your property at its very best, pack away any of those items that you can live without for a few months and take pets out of the house during viewings.

      What would be your dream home? My dream home would be a modern detached property with beautiful gardens, a large balcony and an infinity pool overlooking a turquoise ocean. I'm not asking for much!

      JAYNE GRAY, SALES NEGOTIATOR
      My passion for selling properties and land began when I was on work experience at the age of 15, I knew back then that I wanted to be an Estate Agent; and here I am, 22 years later still fulfilling my dream with John German in Uttoxeter.

      Favourite part of your job? My favourite part of the job, is agreeing that sale, seeing both the seller & the buyer happy is our ultimate goal. I also enjoy overcoming hurdles that sometimes appear in the buying & selling process, meeting new people & making friends along the way.

      Top tip for buyer or seller? 

      Buyers: Be prepared to buy, ensure your finances are in place, even before you begin to look for properties & ensure that you have chosen a conveyancer (solicitor) in readiness, this will avoid any unnecessary delays with your purchase.

      Sellers: Prepare to sell, present your property and make it stand out from the rest, declutter, ensure it is clean & tidy. I am a great believer in kerb appeal, most prospective purchasers will drive past your property before even making arrangements to view, therefore make it appeal to them, first impressions are very important.

      What would be your dream home? My dream home would be a large Country House with land, which would accommodate lots of friends & family staying over. It would need to be in a secluded spot with far reaching views & a lake, as I adore water, preferably with its own house keeper, chef & gardener. Now I need to stop dreaming & do some work!!!

      PAUL PARKES, ACCOMPANIED VIEWER
      Time at John German? I joined the team here at Uttoxeter in February 2017 having previously worked for another Agency. 

      Favourite part of your job? Conducting the viewings at the wide variety of properties both For Sale and For Let that John German deal with, big and small, town and country. Also meeting people with varying requirements; from people looking for their first home to 'seasoned' home movers. 

      Top tip for buyer or seller ? When selling a property think about the 'kerb appeal' because you can only make a first impression once, and then de-clutter the property so it presents as best it can, while at the same time feeling homely. When buying, make sure you have your finances in place so to avoid disappointment. 

      What would be your dream home? If in the UK, a nice home in a village within walking distance to a nice country pub. Outside the UK, a villa in Cyprus.

      Favourite part of your job? The variety of dealing with so many aspects of business administration and particularly the marketing aspect of my role.

      What would be your dream home? A self cleaning one! Or failing that, a contemporary new home or conversion in a rural location but within walking distance of the village pub.

      What are your hobbies? Exercising, skiing and socialising!

      • Seller Testimonial

        we appreciated all your efforts, thanks again
        I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for all that you did for my wife and myself. Without your help, advice and understanding this move might have gone on and on. It seems a very small thing really just an email to thank you but I hope you can pass it on to the powers up the top and show them how much we appreciated all your efforts, thanks again. Cheers Mark and Lorraine W
      • Seller Testimonial

        Friendly, efficient and professional staff. A pleasure to do business with.
      • Seller Testimonial

        out of their way to provide a 1st class service
        This is the best estate agent I have ever had the pleasure to deal with. They are professional, flexible and go out of their way to provide a first class service from start to sale. They were able to sell my bungalow when other agents had promised the earth and failed to deliver. I would recommend to anyone who is putting their property on the market.
      • Seller Testimonial

        the team were fantastic all the way through
        The first time I've ever used an estate agents and there are plenty to choose from in this town. After visiting 4 we decided to use John German and we were not disappointed. I felt that I was given straightforward advice and had a clear idea of the costs involved. Found some of the others had a few hidden costs. Matt and the team were fantastic all the way through what was a lengthy sale (due to our buyers solicitors) and kept me informed every step of the way. Would recommend them to anyone thinking about moving.
      • Seller Testimonial

        made the process a stress free one for the family
        John German have sold my elderly mother's house in Uttoxeter. They have made the process a stress free one for the family. Thank you for your hard work.
      • Seller Testimonial

        They were 'spot on' with their advice
        I visited a couple of Estate Agents in Uttoxeter and John German offered, what it seemed at the time, a better value package. And they certainly delivered as promised, in a very efficient, friendly and professional manner. The property needed to be sold quickly and auction was recommended. They were 'spot on' with their advice and guide price. The whole process was owned by John German, from showing people around, liaising with Solicitors, marketing etc, and they attended the actual auction. They provided regular updates along the way. The stress of selling the house was taken away and they provided all the support that was needed. A remarkable and very recommended Estate Agent, Thank you.
