Hi, and thank you for visiting this blog. I have been in the Chelmsford Property market since 2008, owning and running with my excellent colleagues, the Martin and Co office in Chelmsford. I am also a Buy to Let Mortgage Adviser helping Landlords like you. I have always shared my thoughts on the local property market in Chelmsford with my landlords, but now I want to share with everyone in the town. On this blog, John and I will talk about what is happening in the town's property market itself, even looking at specific streets or housing estates. At other times, we will post what we consider decent buy to let deals. Some will be on the market with me (as we also sell property), but others will be on the market with other agents in Chelmsford. We like to look at the whole of market and give you, what we consider the best investment opportunities.I am a very experienced Estate Agent and a Fellow of ARLA (The Association of Residential Lettings Agents). I have 25+ years’ experience in the local Property Market, starting as a Trainee Sales Negotiator for a Corporate Agency. Working my way up through the ranks I have spent my entire working career in the Customer Service Industry. Born in Chelmsford, I am married with 4 Children. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with the family, playing golf and going out for a run!
