What’s your role?

I head up the New Homes team which is a team specialising in the purchase of new build properties. The team deals with in excess of 3,000 property transactions each year. This is a fast growing and very busy team working to tight deadlines set by developers. Part of my role is focused on the strategic growth of the team. I also ensure the delivery of client service excellence by the team through the management, development, and training of individual team members and the improvement of processes and procedures. I also assist with complicated technical issues.

I deal with complex property issues and help clients buy, sell and mortgage all types of property effectively and efficiently.

Your experience

I qualified as a solicitor in 1997 and joined Coffin Mew in 2001  I have over 25 years experience of working for developers and housing associations selling new build properties and have previously worked in house for a national developer.  I have extensive and rounded knowledge of the new homes market from both a developers and plot buyers perspective.  This specialism includes knowledge of planning agreements, CML requirements, Help to Buy and other affordable initiatives.
