Why did you join Home Truths?
I had retired from my career but did not feel ready to completely retire. We had put our house up for sale with Home truths and have loved being a part of the team at Home Truths
What do you do at Home Truths?
My main role is to greet prospective home buyers at their chosen property and show them around. I try to answer any questions they may have regarding this property but also to confirm the criteria they are looking for if the house we are presently viewing is not for them. I can then suggest any other houses that also meet their criteria.
When not viewing properties I am in the office answering calls and times to suit.
I have also taken on the role of “gardener” and enjoy practising my Topiary skills on the trees!
Why are you proud to work for Home Truths?
As it is a family firm it is nice to feel part of a very happy, close-knit team. We are professional but friendly at the same time and supporting each other in all the roles required.
Why should people come to Home Truths to sell or let their home?
We have a large variety of properties to suit most budgets. We take the time to get to know our Vendors and often this is “the right one”.
The staff have extensive knowledge of House Sales and we are there to support you all through your house purchase/ rental process from contacting us to look at a house to collect the keys.
How do you describe to friends and family what you do?
I tell everyone I am doing my “dream job”. I work part-time, meeting new people and showing them around houses that may become their new home.
What makes you smile at work?
The banter and catch up as we all arrive in the morning before the workday begins.
When I am showing someone around a house we always have a laugh and the offer is rung through to the office. Smiles all round.
When someone comes in to collect the keys to their new home on the day of Completion.
Obviously, when we get compliments on our service.
Also when I look out of the office window and see nature at it’s best.
What do you love about living in the local area?
I moved here 32 years ago and it is a very friendly place to be.
What do you do for fun?
I love walking and am a member of a Walking Group so go out regularly with them or with friends.
I enjoy decorating and home staging so, having recently moved, I am very busy creating our new home.
I am a passionate gardener too so you can find me in the garden, weather permitting.
I love eating out, Theatre and Cinema when possible.
One of my other passions is Travel. I lived in Hong Kong for 2 years and experience rural China.
I enjoy time with the Grandchildren as they make you see the world through their eyes which is fun.
I am an active member of my church and in the Choir.
Who would be your three dream dinner guests and why?
I would love to invite Michael Palin. I met him years ago when my Father worked for the BBC in Bristol. He loves travel and bad!
My Mother, who lives in St Ives , Cornwall so do not get to see her often enough. To create a wonderful meal for her to thank her for everything she has done as a mother.
And finally – Michael Bolton. Well why not!!!
