My journey into property has been diverse but one thing has remained constant and that is my love and understanding of the Birmingham City Centre market. Having graduated with a marketing and business management background, I worked briefly in mortgage acquisitions before starting out in Birmingham in the early 2000’s at a time when the modern version of City Centre living was born. I was fortunate enough to be heavily involved in the original launches of key developments and we enjoyed great success with a business that very simply put the customer first. Enjoying rapid growth to become Birmingham’s market leading letting agent, I gravitated to a role looking after other key City operations in the North, namely Manchester, Leeds, York and Liverpool. Birmingham is going through what many are referring to as a ‘renaissance period’ with a huge amount of investment being ploughed into the City. No surprise that the City is now considered to have the highest standard of living of any other region in the U.K. Figures show it is growing faster than any other large UK City with greater levels of foreign investment. In addition to migration into the City, many young Birmingham residents who would previously have migrated out of the City are staying put namely because of the renewed employment opportunities and the standard of life and variety that the City now offers. To be involved in this new wave of growth is something we relish. You’ll read elsewhere in this brochure about the difference that Wentworth & Rose can make over traditional estate agents. In such a fast moving / diverse market place I believe that constantly evolving our approach whilst focusing on serving and educating our customers is vital. having spent many a happy weekend as a child exploring the beautiful area of the Cotswolds my dream house would have to be an old farmhouse lovingly restored with sympathetic modern touches. It would have to have views across the wonderful countryside and heated garages with a mezzanine live-in area so that I could spend a bit of time with the cars and bikes. There would have to be an amazing local pub serving local produce and good cake a stones throw away.
