After leaving school, I started my working career as a fashion buyer in Kensington. Before long I realised that this wasn’t for me and moved on to start my career in Estate Agency, some 32 years ago now!
My Estate Agency career started in property management for a small independent company. I decided quite quickly that my talents were better suited to the front end of the industry, so I ventured on to Carrington’s Estate Agents in Richmond where I was employed as a Lettings Manager. After working there for a few years, I was head hunted to work for Fitz-Gibbon Estate Agents in St Margaret’s where I concentrated on working with overseas investors. Before long, I was headhunted again, this time by Dexter’s where I was recruited as the Sales valuation Manager in Richmond. After 10 years’ service, I left Dexter’s to take over the running of my father’s business “Penney and Co” in Kingston as he had decided the time was right for him to retire. The business was eventually sold to Thamesview.
After selling the business, I had 5 years off and spent quite a lot of my time traveling where I got to experience some amazing place. On my return, I soon realised that I needed to get back to work as I missed it. I am noisy by nature, love a good chat and have a true passion for property, which lead me to Ivy Gate- where I have been since 2018 and love it!
Hidden TalentsI have passion for interior design and over the years have refurbished many properties.
If I Won The LotteryI would like to open an animal sanctuary first and foremost, but would definitely like to see more of the world.
When I'm Not WorkingI spend as much time with friends and family as I am a little bit of a social butterfly. My three dogs keep me busy and I love taking them for long walks along the river or to one of our many parks. I adore my holidays to Fuerteventura where I have holidayed for many years. In addition, I have recently become involved with the charity “PURE SEAS” trying to address the plastic pollution of our seas and rivers.
