Bringing people and property together

We come into work and live our dream in a part of the world that is very familiar to us. Why do we love it? Above all else, it's all about people.

We’re great with people, we just happen to be pretty good with property too. At Stobart & Hurrell we recognise that every move has a very real story or motivation behind it and every request is made for a significant reason.

At Stobart & Hurrell we listen. We cherish each property as though it’s our own and we market every property with the intent of achieving the very best price, from the best buyer, and in the right timescales for our clients.

I am very lucky to live and work in the area that I grew up in, an area I love. Throughout my career I have been focused on people; 16 years in retail management and human resources, leading on to a rewarding seven years as a therapist supporting professionals in sport and business, as well as those with other needs, to achieve their personal goals.

Great communication is everything to me, and something that we pride ourselves on at Stobart & Hurrell.

We have two lovely children and a family cockerpoo called Poppy, who will often be found lounging in the office.

I was born and raised in the Wroxham area and I’m fortunate to be raising my own family in the Broads National Park too. I've worked in estate agencies for 20 years and in every role across Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, latterly running 26 branches. I have always been happiest dealing with people, rather than just numbers, helping people make that move, in all the situations you can imagine life has thrown at them - I deliver an excellent service for all clients.

I have a passion for cycling, both at home and abroad. I love to find the time to watch my son play football and my daughter doing gymnastics. Naturally, in this area, we head to the Broads whenever we can too.

As child growing up we often holidayed in Norfolk as a family and I count myself as fortunate that my parents eventually decided that we should move and settle here; needless to say I now have many fond memories of growing up in this part of Norfolk.

Having recently experienced buying my first home with my partner, I now very clearly appreciate the role a great estate agent should play in any successful house transaction. With a background in marketing and also in recruitment, I have a fine eye for detail and a passion for meeting people; a number of years of voluntary charity work and I readily recognise the satisfaction with helping others.

Outside of work I love to enjoy the outdoors, taking every opportunity to explore of our wonderful countryside and near coastline with my partner and our adopted German Shepherd, Freddie.

I feel really fortunate to have been born and raised in Norfolk, particularly to have experienced living by the Broads all my life. Growing up in the area and being a true Norfolk born and bred, I am a big Norwich City fan and as a season ticket holder I’ve always made an effort to go and watch the matches with my Father.

Whilst studying Media and Camera Production I accumulated a variety of skills and a passion for filming and photography, I have used these skills to carry out a hobby in car photography which I do in my spare time; I’ve got a real belief in the difference great photography can make.

I’m grateful to be working in a fantastic area of Norfolk where I have lots of experience of which I can offer local advice to those looking to make a move within Norfolk.

Having started my career aged 20 at a large corporate company I soon fell in love with everything to do with working in Estate Agency. I have a passion for helping people finding their next home and going through the moving process this year myself I know how important it is to have someone guide you through the process.

I grew up in Norfolk and now have the pleasure of raising my three children here and I truly believe it is a great place to live.

I started working at Stobart & Hurrell as they are an independent family run business that truly believe in helping people and achieving the best results for their clients.

I spent most of my life travelling with the Armed Forces and my family, but returned to Norfolk in 2010, where as a family we have now settled in Wymondham. I never grow tired of our amazingly diverse county and working on the doorstep of the famous Norfolk Broads makes travelling to work a real pleasure.

At Stobart & Hurrell I am responsible for production of our property brochures and ensuring we meet and maintain our own very high standards of marketing. Stobart & Hurrell really is a family run business that values its staff and customers, I feel privileged to be a part of it.

I have lived in Norfolk all my life and absolutely love it! It is such an amazing place, which is why I have stayed and started my family here. I have two amazing daughters which keep me very busy outside of work with different activities!

I have worked in mortgages for 15 years and I really love working with people, I particularly enjoy helping to making their dreams come true. I previously worked with Peter, Patrick and Terie in a corporate world for 10 years and after having my youngest daughter knew it was time for a change. I wanted to work with an estate agent that cared and wanted the best for their clients and I have definitely found that in Stobart and Hurrell.

Born and bred in Norfolk, I grew up in the small village of Itteringham, near Aylsham. A passion for photography was discovered when studying the subject as part of an Estate Agency qualification attained in the early 1980s. From that course a 27 year estate agency career followed, but I always felt that one day I would follow a photography ambition and that dream was embarked upon in 2013 when I decided to go self employed as a provider of photography services to estate agents.

It is a real pleasure being part of Stobart & Hurrell’s team since the outset of the business and their exacting approach to customer service suits my own desire to provide the very best service I can in order to enhance the presentation of properties marketed by the company.

I live in North Walsham with my wife Lynne, our cat Toby and Robin, our small dog. We have a grown up son and two little grandchildren..
