Why did you join Home Truths?

After working for corporate Estate Agents in Chorley and Preston for a number of years, I came across the opportunity to work for Home Truths and immediately bought into the refreshing company ethos. Being able to work locally to where I live was a great opportunity, as I know and love this area and I have been an active member of the community for many years.

What do you do at Home Truths? 

On the sales side, I am involved in the whole process. I register applicants, find out what is important to them and arrange viewings on suitable properties. I accompany viewings, gain constructive feedback and update vendors, before negotiating a successful  sale.  On the marketing side, I arrange and carry out valuations, bring the properties to market and prepare the particulars and floor plans. I make sure that each home is perfectly presented to achieve the best price in the best timescale.

Why are you proud to work for Home Truths? 

Home Truths friendly and attentive approach is like a breath of fresh air.  Each customer is valued and each and every member of the team work together to ensure all our clients, buyers, vendors, landlords and tenants, are looked after with unrivaled first-class service from start to finish.

Why should people come to Home Truths to sell or let their home? 

People who come to Home Truths will receive a very warm welcome and a team to work with them and who really will go that extra mile to meet their needs.

As a family run, local agent we utilise our local knowledge and take the time to understand what is important to each person.  Moving home can often be a stressful time and we are here to make the experience as pleasant as possible.

We’re pretty good at what we do too,  being recently accredited by online property portal, Right Move, for selling properties more quickly than any of our competitors in the Chorley area.

Ultimately, we offer everything you would expect from any high street agent, we deliver more and at a very competitive price.

How do you describe to friends and family what you do?

I do joke that I’m a blonde Kirsty Allsopp! My friends and family know that my passion for property drives me to sell houses and they know how much I enjoy it!  My natural curiosity to find out what makes people tick helps me to find the right buyer for each property.

What makes you smile at work?

I enjoy bringing properties to the market. I like to create a thoughtful description with professional photography to really bring the home to life.

Of course, agreeing a successful sale and seeing how you have helped someone to move into their perfect home is always the best moment of the day!  I also like to keep the team happy with my home baked goods and we have been known to crack open the wine to celebrate a particularly successful day...

What do you love about living in the local area?

I moved to Croston in 2000 and have embraced village life.  My children, now 13 and 11, are at the local high school and have had a lovely upbringing through fantastic playgroups, nurseries and schools.

There are great country walks on the doorstep and it’s ideal to live in such a rural setting, yet still have easy access to the larger towns and cities by road or rail.  Socially there is always something going on at local pubs, restaurants and organised village events. There is a real community spirit, which is rare to find these days.

What do you do for fun?

I love to spend time with family and friends.  I enjoy cooking and entertaining, I love to socialise and enjoy spending holidays in this country and overseas when time allows.

Who would be your three dream dinner guests and why? 

I would love to hold a dinner party and invite Phil Spencer from Location, Location, Location.  It would be interesting to hear the tales he could tell of the properties he has visited over the years and why he feels his professional relationship with Kirsty works so well. David Beckham would also be on the guest list, purely for his insight into the game of football of course...

My third dinner guest would have to be my late Grandma as she always livened up any occasion like no-one else!
