Senior Negotiator

With 12 years Jersey property experience and a further 8 years sales experience, Simon is well versed, with experience solving a variety of different scenarios. Simon enjoys working closely with the buyer and seller, having spent 12 years working with other estate agents based around Jersey. When he realised that it was difficult to offer a complete one on one service when there were so many agents fighting for deals, he jumped at the opportunity to work in a smaller firm where everyone pulled together as a team.

Derek’s background gives him an advantage with developers and builders, benefiting potential buyers who can obtain an informed précis of the property they are considering.
