    SENIOR PARTNER
    DAVID ROBINS My estate agency career started in 1987, later joining Linay & Shipp in 1996. As the owner I am involved in all aspects of the business, with development sites being my particular area of expertise. With a firm understanding of the whole process from planning to delivery I have been involved in the development of a number of new home sites built in the area over the last 20 years. What I love about Orpington is its wonderful range of facilities, with great schools, excellent transport links, beautiful countryside and lots of leisure facilities. The best part of my work is the personal contact, whether it's revisiting old clients and helping with their second or third moves or in meeting people for the first time. Away from the office my priority is spending time with my wife and 2 sons. I love sports and enjoy getting out on the golf course when time allows. I am also a long suffering Welling United fan!

    OFFICE MANAGER
    DEBBIE BOWEN I have worked for Linay & Shipp for almost 31 years, joining straight from school after completing my business studies course. As the office manager I am responsible for overseeing the marketing process and progressing sales through to a successful completion. The process of buying and selling properties can be extremely challenging, but also very interesting, which Is probably why I have worked here for so long! The best part of the job for me is helping people find their dream home and to see the excitement when they pick up their keys - it makes the whole process so worthwhile. In my down time I enjoy keeping fit, belonging to a local gym and also getting outside in the fresh air for power-walking with Hazel. During the summer evenings and weekends, I enjoy gardening and generally maintaining my home.

    SALES NEGOTIATOR
    Ashley Knapman Previous to my career as an estate agent I spent two years as a project manager. This has given me strong experience and knowledge regarding the structures of buildings from the bottom up, knowing what work is involved, how it is done and the costs incurred; All of which greatly help in my work. I have over 18 months current experience as a sales negotiator in both Orpington and the surrounding areas. I am usually the first point of contact for our clients, dealing with enquiries, making appointments, assisting with viewings and helping to successfully negotiate offers. My favourite part of the job is meeting people and giving advice to assist with their move. Being able to help people find their new home always puts a smile on my face. Orpington is a great place to live and work as everything really is on your doorstep. Located within easy reach of the M25 and being in London Zone 6, it also offers easy commuting opportunities. There are a number of outstanding schools, many local facilities and sport clubs, and lastly you are only minutes from being in the countryside. When not working I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with friends and family. I also enjoy watching football and (unfortunately) I am a Charlton Athletic supporter.

    OFFICE SECRETARY
    LESLEY LAWTON My career background has always been in the financial sector, and I have been the administrator/ secretary at Linay & Shipp, for almost 4 years. Attention to detail and organisation are key skills that assist in the smooth running of the office. I have lived in Orpington virtually all my life, raising my 3 (now grown up) children. As such I have strong local knowledge of the town and all the great things it has to offer. I now have two lovely grandchildren (twins!), so as you can imagine my spare time is very much centred around my family. I also enjoy having friends over for meals and going out to restaurants and theatre when finances allow!
