Meet the Team

David Metcalfe- Franchise Owner

Having worked for a large corporate estate agency for six years I decided to set up my first Hunters branch back in 2011. To open up with one other member of staff with no houses to sell was the most stressful thing I have ever done! I soon found that running my own estate agency was very different to working for someone else. I remember after the first couple of months we unfortunately had a sale fall through and it hit me like a truck! Lying awake at night, not being able to think about anything else, wondering what I could do to put the deal back together – I found red wine helped me tremendously! Whilst the midweek alcohol consumption has diminished, my commitment to my business remains and I very much lead from the front in all aspects of the business. 

When the opportunity came up to take over the existing branch of Hunters in Ripon I jumped at it. I started my estate agency career in Ripon, I met my wife in Ripon and got married in Grewelthorpe – it is an area which is very close to my heart!  In my free time I love to spend time with my wife and son, cooking (particularly Thai food) and I’m a keen fan of formula one. 


Gina Lucas- Branch Manager

I have worked in the industry for over 15 years, in that time I have built up extensive knowledge in every aspect of selling houses and was extremely proud to receive a GOLD industry award, for excellence in customer service as voted for by our clients, I live in the local area and know the City very well and I’m here to see your house move through from start to finish.


Ross Fallenstein- Lettings Branch Manager

I joined David in June 2014 following several years at a corporate letting agent. Having worked with David before and after seeing his success running his own business, I jumped at the opportunity to join him at Hunters. I was recruited as the Lettings Branch Manager to focus on growing a lettings business that could offer unrivalled levels of customer service to local property owners. I enjoy all aspects of my job and every day is different, meeting with perspective landlords and discussing our many service options is by far the most enjoyable part.  Away from work my hobbies include rugby, walking with my dog Hector and skiing.


Christine Colquhoun- Property Manager

I joined  David at Hunters  in March 2016 and my role is Property Manager for the Lettings Team. My daily tasks are varied and range from blocked drains to wasp nest removal !  I work closely with my Lettings Manger Ross and ensure the entire tenant application process runs smoothly. I look after some fabulous properties in the local area and have developed strong bonds with both tenants and Landlords. The team here are brilliant and help each other out during busy periods.


Stephen Jobling- Valuer/Sales Negotiator

I’ve been part of the Hunters team for three years now and originally started out in the Boroughbridge office. Having relocated to North Yorkshire, Ripon was where I first settled and it has since become a second home to me, as such I was delighted to move across to the branch when the opportunity arose! 
Never one to sit idle, you’ll catch me either walking in the country, championing DIY or watching a good film at the local cinema in my spare time!
