    Georgia McCarthy - Director
    I have worked in different sales environments since I left school many moons ago, and can count running several successful travel agents in London as part of my experience. I moved to the Isle of Wight in 2002 and became an estate agent and really haven't looked back since. I want to be the agent that I would like to deal with- hard working, not typical, empathetic and tenacious whether it is a vendor or buyer I'm helping. In fact I can count previous buyers and vendors as personal friends now! On my day off from the agency, you can find me talking to the visitors at the Isle of Wight Zoo in Sandown about lions, tigers monkeys and lemurs as a tour guide- I've been doing this for some 7 summers now and it adds another wonderful dimension to my life here on this beautiful island. I am wife to Paddy and mum to three grown up children all of whom I adore and whenever we can we'll be found taking long walks with our two Jack Russell terriers' in gorgeous spots of natural beauty around this island that we love to call home.

    Paul Booker - Director
    Although I can't claim to be a 'caulkhead', I grew up on this gorgeous Island from a young age and have many fond memories of endless summers spent on beaches, swimming in the sea and exploring anywhere my bicycle would take me! After leaving school I spent time travelling in Australia and New Zealand, and worked in Oxford and London before returning to Cowes to get back into the world of estate agency, setting up my own agency in 2011. I recently moved to Freshwater Bay and love being part of a thriving community. Living on the island you can't help but be drawn to activities that let you explore the beautiful countryside and coastline, and whether it's running across Tennyson Down or taking the paddleboard out from Compton beach, there's always plenty to do here!

      Mike Holmes :No praise is high enough for the level of service we received from Georgie and Paul during the sales of our properties. These were expensive houses by Island standards but Georgia's indomitable spirit, enthusiasm and professionalism at all times day or night to both ourselves and our purchasers ensured not only the sales of our houses but also that they were sold in a good timescale and for sensible prices. Top class service from an amazing team

      Thank you Georgie and Paul for your help with the sale of one of my BTL properties. Very helpful and should I consider selling another property then waterside will be at the top of my list. Thanks again Glen and Sheila

      Five star service all the way! Thanks Georgie for all your efforts in selling our property. Paul helped too of course! Communication and information sharing kept us in the loop. Chain chased almost daily I think, communication was fab. Highly recommended - you won't be sorry if you choose Waterside. After our first chain collapsed, Georgie found us another buyer within 2 days! They go above and beyond what you would normally expect from an estate agent. D.x.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Just want to say a massive thank you to both Georgie and Paul for all the effort and work they put into the sale of the property. Fantastic estate agents, with a great work ethic, would highly recommend them!
    • Seller Testimonial

      Fantastic service, couldn't fault them. Georgie, as usual, was friendly and enthusiastic, giving us regular and honest feedback. Even after buyers were found, she chased up solicitors, surveyors and council taking some of the stress of moving away from us. Would definitely recommend and if I had to,(hopefully not), would use them again. Can't recommend highly enough.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Brilliant estate agents, found our buyers very quickly and chased solicitors and the chain all the way through the sale. Got to love Georgie and Paul (the best estate agents on the Island). Thank you both. Would recommend any day x x x

      Great, friendly and personal service
      We both bought and sold through Waterside over the last few months and what a great, friendly and personal service. Georgie made a stressful time just a bit easier ensuring we were always up to date and that Waterside were always available to answer our questions. We love our new home! Thank you Waterside.

      Superb throughout
      Georgie and her team were superb throughout our selling process. Their valuation was spot on and we received positive feedback in a timely manner after every viewing. Suffice to say we received an offer at the asking price after only three viewings. Despite some glitches along the way on our side, Georgie remained positive throughout and her constructive advice alleviated much of the stress always associated with moving homes. We would have no hesitation in recommending Waterside to anyone wishing to sell their property.

      Professional yet personal
      Professional yet personal- first class service. Georgie McCarthy was excellent at supporting through each step of the process and the personal care was very much appreciated. The rest of the Waterside Team were equally friendly and every query was dealt with.
