Here at Applegate Properties, we pride ourselves on being a traditional estate agency with a ‘modern’ twist – achieved thanks to our amazing team. Each month, we want to shine the spotlight on a different member of staff, to find out a little bit more about what makes them tick!
Next up it’s Emma Lancaster, our sales advisor…
Describe your role in less than 100 words:
I take care of the properties for sale at Applegate. This involves me doing everything from booking appraisals, to negotiating offers. I also have a close eye on the progression of a purchase with the solicitors involved, and keep vendors and buyers aware of the status.
How long have you worked at Applegate Properties?
Almost 4 months now!
What’s your favourite part of your role?
The part I love the most is negotiating offers and tracking a property’s progress until a sale complete. Handing over the keys to each new home owner is a highlight of my job.
What one word would your colleagues use to describe you?
Which three words would you use to describe Applegate?
Happy, ethical and hardworking.
Why does Applegate stand out from its competitors?
We are a unique and friendly team, and our hard work and management of properties is like no other in the sector.
If you could sell one celebrity home, whose would it be and why?
Kirsty Allsop’s house – I think her interior style is lovely.
Do you have a favourite property which has been sold, since working at Applegate?
It would have to be a property on Underbank Old Road – the location is gorgeous, and the homes around there are too.
What’s your top tip for selling/letting a home?
My tip is for other agents – always make sure that everyone involved in the process is happy.
