I was born in and have lived and worked in Oxfordshire for most of my life. Getting into estate agency was a happy accident for me; having just finished my degree I thought I should get some interview practice and was offered a job as a negotiator. Since then I have run offices in and around Oxford and have become passionate about property and helping people with their property related plans. Estate Agency is without doubt a vocation, not a job and despite working in the business for 30 years now, I find there is always more to learn and plenty to keep me interested. I arrived in Woodstock in 1999 and I am now thoroughly settled in the town. I consider myself fortunate to live in such a friendly and cosmopolitan area and meeting people in their houses is always interesting. I do get away from Woodstock now and again, usually to travel with my wife and daughter to somewhere we’ve not been before or to go skiing. We have a lovely house and garden in Woodstock and for us it is the perfect home.
