Charles has never done anything else apart from estate agency. Since being a trainee, and total novice, in 1981, he says he’d like to think he knows everything and has seen it all! But he hasn’t, and says he still enjoys learning about people and how they work. This then, is why he has not wanted to do anything else and why he likes dealing with people first and property second.
When not in the office, he can be found enjoying a good glass of Rioja and, perhaps, a little bit of cheese…..

Beth is one the youngest members of the company and has one of the broadest smiles!! Plunged straight into the deep end by going straight into business from school has been hard but an invaluable experience for Beth. Always keen to provide the best possible service by going that one step further for landlords and tenants alike. The very busy lettings department sees her travelling all over north Devon – watch out for her in her sign written car!! Her busy working life has almost given her an uncanny knack of being in two places at once!!
Her equally busy home life sees her looking after her energetic young son and Rex, her lively red fox Labrador.
Having joined us in 2019 Greg works alongside Beth and Sarah in the rental department, he also heads up a lot of our social media and online adverts. In Greg’s free time you can often see him at ND golf course swinging a club but hopefully hitting a ball… Greg is also part of a band playing the bass for the well renowned rock band Fallen State.
