Margaret began work in estate agency with Paul Watts Estate Agents some 25 years ago. It seemed a natural progression following experience working in sales for a national housebuilder and in the conveyancing department of a local solicitors. Working her way up from secretary to negotiator and then a partner, and now owner of the business, she can truly say that she is very experienced in all aspects of residential property sales. She carries out the majority of property valuations, and also is involved in viewings and sales progress chasing too. Margaret takes a keen interest in promoting the local area, being actively involved in the Charminster Traders Association. Outside work, she enjoys visiting National Trust properties with her husband, country and seaside walking, and is an avid reader. Like her son and husband, she is a football fan and keen supporter of The Cherries, otherwise known as AFC Bournemouth.
After helping us on with temporary holiday cover, Karen has recently joined us on a permanent basis and is looking forward to becoming much more involved on a day to day basis. She lives in the local area and with a professional handyman for a husband, has a keen interest in all property matters. She is a very busy lady, but does enjoy occasional trips away, especially visiting family in London.
Leigh helps out part time, with her main responsibility being liaising with potential purchasers, carrying out viewings and negotiating sales. Having refurbished and extended several properties in the local area, Leigh is happy to pass on her invaluable advice to potential puchasers.
Penny is one of those ‘can do’ people, who is not deterred by problems, but gets on with sorting it out. She is very efficient when it comes to both administrative duties and also carrying out viewings. Like all our staff she particularly enjoys developing close working relationships with owners and applicants to ensure that we can deal with their requirements as well as possible.
