I have been working in the field of residential conveyancing since I left school in 1989, starting out as a legal secretary and then studying the Legal Executive course a few years later, following which I became a fee earner in a small independent firm.

I have worked in Brighton, Tunbridge Wells, London and East Sussex and consider the experience gained over the past 25 years of practice invaluable in enabling me to provide an efficient, friendly and proactive service to all my clients.


Vanessa Testimonial 6

Vanessa was excellent throughout both the buying and selling process. Vanessa is very efficient and also very effective at managing expectations from both sides whose expectations a lot of the time were completely unrealistic. Andrew effortlessly tied up the completion side of both the buying and selling.

Everything was explained to my level of understanding, I fully understood what was going on at all times. I was updated regularly about how the sale was going, which gave me great confidence in Vanessa.
