- Understand people: The sales and lettings transaction is reliant on a number of people who often have different vested interests. The team need to be aware of these and navigate the process in order to achieve the result the clients want.
- You are only as strong as your weakest link and therefore an open culture of continuous improvement is paramount.

A little bit about me: I have lived in Walton for 6 years and lived in Weybridge for 7 years before that. I left university in 2002 and went straight into estate agency. I have worked for large corporate estate agencies as well as the smaller independent ones. I enjoy the flexibility and creativity of the independent estate agencies compared the rigid and soulless brands you sometime come across. I am married and have a son who attends Ashley school. Also an avid Liverpool FC fan and general sports nut.
What I do out of work: Any spare time I have is spent with the family. Either bike rides along the Thames or trying to get my 5 year old to enjoy golf…with little success to date.
What I enjoy about working as an Estate Agent: I love the varied nature of the job. No day is the same. I also love helping our clients achieve their dream move. Whether it’s a first time purchase or moving up the ladder to house a growing family…..it’s great to see them achieve what they need, to make their families happy.
Proudest moments to date: Undoubtedly it must be the birth of my son. He makes me laugh every day.
Favourite something: My favourite day of the week is a Sunday. I love to cook a roast for the family with a glass of red, whilst watching the football.
My Favourite Place in Walton: I think Walton offers a great deal for a lot of people. As a family we can enjoy going to the cinema, eating out in a choice of restaurants or enjoying time in a river front pub in the summer. For a small town I think we are lucky to have so much on our door step. It’s a great place to live.
My Customer Service commitment: I think every client should be treated as an individual who has their own needs and expectations. I like to ascertain at an early stage what they are looking to achieve and how we can all work to together to make it happen for them.

A little bit about me: Working at Rochills has been fantasticand very different from my last job as manager of a running shop! But I’ve always had an interest in the property industry I’ve found the career for me. I’m currently studying for my award in Residential Lettingsand Property Management.
What I do out of work: For me, nothing beats spending time with my family, and whatever we do together, I couldn’t be happier!
Started Rochills: January 2016
What I enjoy about working as an estate agent: I feel very privileged to work for a family run business. I sit with a very experienced director who is always helping me achieve the best I can. I don’t think I would get this level of training working for any other agent. Everyone in the office is great fun and it makes me excited to go to work in the morning.
Proudest moment to date: Getting married and buying a house
Favourite place in Walton: There are some fabulous restaurants in the Heart, andI often go out to dinner there. The Swan pub, by the river, is lovely too.
My customer service commitment: I have always worked in environments where excellent customer service is essential, so it’s second nature to me. The customer always comes first with everything I do.

A little about me: I came to England from the Czech Republic when I was 19 and had so much fun working as a Nanny, while deciding on the perfect career for me. It also helped to improve my English!
I’m from a really sporty family. Therefore, it was a logical step to train as a Gym Instructor; which eventually led to the position of Gym Manager. The skills I acquired during this time were extremely transferable, and I’ve found it’s been a smooth transition into the world of real estate.
I’m passionate and motivated with everything I do and always give more than 100% – which I guess is not surprising as a sports enthusiast!
Out of Work: As you can imagine, as a qualified Gym instructor, I love all sorts of sports. I’ve recently started Crossfit, and I’m also a big fan of running and currently training to run a full marathon. I’m also a very inquisitive person and like to explore different places and taste new food. I also believe in self-development and devour books that will help me improve and grow as a person!
Start Date: I started working for Rochills in June 2018.
What I enjoy about working as an Estate Agent: I love to help people, it’s very satisfying. And as an estate agent, I can help our customers find their dream home and my clients to move onto the next chapter of their life.
Every day in this industry is different, which keeps me on my toes and allows me to learn new things. That’s why I really enjoy this job… there’s never a dull moment.
Proudest Moment: I won the award ‘Overall most outstanding student of the year in East Berkshire college’ and was interviewed by local newspapers – very exciting!
Favourite place in Walton: Without question, it’s the Walton on Thames town centre. I just love getting to know new people and the crowded high street is a great place to do that. I especially like Costa coffee shop on the High Street. You’ll find me there on my lunch breaks, and it’s where I meet many of my clients.
Customer service commitment: My three mainvalues are: Make the customer happy; build relationships; and always go the extra mile.
