    Michael Carpenter, Director
    Hello, I'm Michael, Director of Nicholas Humphreys in Northampton. I was born in Kimbolton and was educated at Kimbolton School, where most of my time seemed to revolve around playing football, cricket and golf!  I went straight from school to work in retail and over the subsequent years I have been fortunate enough to work for three major retailers, fulfilling various Store, Head Office and Field Management roles.  But my ambition to have my own business, having grown up in my parents Bakery, has never dulled and having spent some time looking at numerous opportunities, I found myself drawn towards the reputation and success of the Nicholas Humphreys brand.Customer service is part of my DNA and I believe that delivering the best possible service to the Landlords and Students of Cambridge, is crucial in successfully establishing Nicholas Humphreys in the city.

    Matthew Carpenter, Branch Manager
    Hello, I'm Matthew, the Branch Manager at Nicholas Humphreys Northampton.  I have recently moved from the position of Deputy Manager of HomeSense Northampton to work with this fast-growing business and I am looking forward to the challenges it will present me with.  Having worked in the service industry for 7 years I understand that customer service is the most crucial part of any business and therefore, my focus will always be on delivering exceptional service to our landlords and tenants.  Nicholas Humphreys' focus on building an estate agent of choice for lettings and sales will allow us to stand out from the crowd locally and nationally and give us more and more opportunities to demonstrate what our brand is all about.  I support Chelsea and when I'm not watching them win the league or struggle to finish in the top half, I enjoy playing golf at my local club.
