Having started my career in estate agency locally way back in 1995 I could be classed as the veteran here at JamesDean. Dean & I started the family business in 2005 with an aim to create and agency with a difference, a fresh modern approach, putting our clients first and providing the best possible moving experience. Many years later we are still going strong and have built up a reputation of being a great local family run business. Although I am still actively hands on and work in the office every day, when I do get some spare time I like to enjoy it with my wife, two kids and two dogs.
I started the family business along with my brother James in 2005. Our modern approach to the industry was welcomed and we continue to enjoy helping people move today. I'm actively helping the team daily at our Reigate branch however when I'm not working I obviously enjoy spending time with my wife and my two daughters. Other than property, I love traveling, golf and running.

Chris started within Estate Agency at the age of 16, and 23 years later is delighted to now be working in Reigate. Chris's energy, attention to detail and experience is all unrivalled locally as his local knowledge of the surrounding towns and villages. He takes a huge amount of pride in every property he brings to the market and ensures that the photography and presentation is the very best it can possibly be, to ensure that every property sale is at the best price possible. Outside of work Chris enjoys quality family and leisure time as well as eating out in order to recharge his batteries.
Although I've only been in agency for 2 years I pride myself on the results I achieve regularly for the branch. I love meeting new people, I consider myself as a very sociable person and get great feedback from the clients that I've helped move home. I'm a keen motor sports enthusiast and enjoy travelling to my partner's family home in Spain.
Senior Property Manager
I joined the company in 2013 as Property Manager, now 4 years on I'm the Senior Property Manager looking after almost double the amount of properties when I first joined. Although our department is incredibly busy taking care of both landlord and tenant queries I thoroughly love the challenge of Property Management. After a busy days work I enjoy going to the gym. I've recently completed my first 10k charity run, I've now got the running bug and looking for more challenges.
Time flies, I joined JamesDean 5 years ago and now along with Claire & Chloe look after the companies ever growing letting property portfolio. We're very fortunate to have a great team that all get on so well, which is very important considering the amount of properties we look after. I enjoy socialising and spending quality time with my 2 children.
I've been working in Property Management for James & Dean since 2016. I've quickly learnt the importance of our department, I realise that we're not just looking after homes but more importantly client investments.
