    Senior Sales Negotiator

    I have worked in the customer service industry for 12 years now, I became an estate agent four years ago starting as a junior sales negotiator and working my way up to sales negotiator. I eventually began progressing property sales along with negotiating which I really enjoyed as you get to see the transaction out from start to finish plus you are there to help along the way when things can become stressful. I always strive to go above and beyond for all customers I deal with for the best possible outcome whether it be negotiating a sale or progressing a property transaction. In my spare time I love to travel, explore different destinations and spend time with friends be it shopping or eating out.
