    Luke Jones

    Franchise Partner

    I set up an independent letting agent in 2010 as a bit of a side job, this quickly developed and in 2013 I decided to open the shop and venture into the world of sales. We have grown year on year and in 2017 I decided that in order to develop the business further that we join the Hunters family. I remain hands-on and still complete over 90% of the valuations and follow all the sales through where I can as this personal touch is what has made the business what it is. In my personal life I am fitness mad and I enjoy a multitude of sports including surfing, paddle boarding, cycling, gym but mainly running. I have completed many running events including marathons and ultra-marathons, many of these being for charity. I live locally and always have, I am passionate about our area and have explored many of the outdoors spaces this County has to offer.
