Alex Sewell Managing Director

I was the last of the Sewell family to get involved in property and now I live and breathe it!

In 2002 my brother called me and said he was opening an estate agency and did I want to come and run it, now nearly 13 years later I am running the 2012, 2013 & 2014 Sunday Times Best Small Estate Agency in the East of England.  Quite an achievement I think!

My business philosophies are to keep it simple, treat the customers like you would expect to be treated yourself and provide simple, professional and honest advice.

I joined Sewell & Gardner as a Trainee Sales Negotiator in 2010. Within the last 6 years I have worked between the Chorleywood and Rickmansworth Office and I am proud to have achieved the highest record for deals produced by one negotiator during 2013-2014. This year I was delighted to become Branch Manager of our flagship office. My role involves all aspects of the sales process from giving appraisals on property to seeing the sale all the way through to completion whilst offering fantastic customer service. I am honoured to be looking after our client’s biggest asset and do my best to make the experience as smooth as possible for them.

Having worked in estate agency in the local area for over 16 years, I joined the Sewell & Gardner team in 2016 as Property Marketing Manager of the new Croxley Green office and am now working in the Watford office. I have lost count of the number of homes I have seen and the amount of happy vendors and purchasers I have come across. I can safely say I have made a lot of new friends either in the business or just through them selling or buying with me. Estate Agency is different every day, you meet new people and see new homes on a daily basis and that is why I enjoy the job so much. The best part of the job though is definitely handing the keys on to the new buyers on completion. I have even had my photo taken doing this by one very excited first time buyer!

I joined Sewell & Gardner in April 2014 at their Chorleywood branch in Lower Road. Previously I was working for another estate agency in the area for four and a half years. In 2016 I was delighted to be given the opportunity to manage our new Croxley Green branch. My role involves all aspects of the sales process from giving appraisals on property to seeing the sale all the way through to completion. I also help with the day to day running of the office and manage a fantastic team. I’m enjoying my role within Sewell & Gardner as it is a family run business, and it is all about the client and great customer service!

I have always admired estate agents and what their job entails and in 2014 I was given the opportunity to work for  Sewell & Gardner at the Chorleywood Branch. After gaining some experience I moved over to the Rickmansworth branch where I carry out viewings, agree sales and progress them from having an offer accepted to completion.

What I love about my job is meeting new people on a daily basis and building strong relationships with them. It’s always a lovely feeling when you help someone find their dream home and I look forward to the many years to come.

I have been working for Sewell & Gardner for 4 months now and have recently had the great opportunity to move across to our New Homes team as their sales consultant. The idea of working in the property industry had always interested me and as an upcoming first time buyer with a particular interest in new builds, I have spent plenty of evenings looking at different houses online and seeing what I could do with a property if it were mine. I am loving being part of the Rickmansworth team and although I have not been with Sewell & Gardner long, I look forward to a long career here.

Having previously had a career in childcare, I was throwing myself in at the deep end starting a new career within the Operations team here at S&G and have really enjoyed the last 9 months. After completing some weekend work at one of our New Homes sites, it became clear I had a real passion for this side of the business and have started the new year with a new role, New Homes Personal Assistant. This entailed meeting and communicating with developers, arranging the advertising and marketing for the new sites we launch as well as organising new brochures, letters and emails. I have recently been given the opportunity to take the more sales based role of New Homes Consultant. It is great to work in such a fast paced environment and I’m excited to get stuck into this new role.

I have now been with Sewell & Gardner for over a year and following my recent move to the Croxley Green office from the Watford office, I am very excited to further my knowledge and understanding of the forever changing world that is property. I believe that to be able to give the best possible service to clients on both the buying and selling side of the coin, it is so important to understand the market you work in and the direction it is headed in. Communicating that information in the correct way is essential to ensuring buyers and sellers are making an informed decision that they are comfortable and happy with. As a Property Consultant, understanding peoples requirements is essential to finding them the next perfect family home or best investment opportunity. For me, the thing I enjoy most about my job is making new friends and building strong relationships. It is a great feeling to hand the keys over to the next step in someone’s life whether it’s your first home or your forever home you have worked so hard to achieve, it never feels any less gratifying and is truly invaluable.

I’m from a sales background and after working with my previous employer for nearly 15 years an opportunity presented for me to take an 18 month sabbatical, during which I spent valuable time with my older children and had another baby to complete our family. My recruitment agency spoke very highly of Sewell & Gardner as an employer and after meeting members of the company during interviews I started to see why. I joined in November 2017 and it’s starting to feel like second nature even in this short period of time. Everyone is friendly and approachable. which is so important in a new job.  My role involves processing important documents, creating brochures, advertising properties and keeping the office running smoothly. I was nervous about re-entering the workforce, but Sewell & Gardner have made the transition very easy and I’m looking forward to a future in this exciting company.
