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. My team are second to none and it is a pleasure to work them every day.

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!

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.

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.

After returning 18 months later, I was delighted to return to Sewell & Gardner and soon became a Senior Office Administrator. In September 2017, I moved to the New Homes department as their Personal Assistant. My role entails meeting and speaking with developers, managing the marketing and advertising for each of our sites for local newspapers and magazines as well as monitoring our social media groups on Linkedin, Facebook and Instagram.

I started at Sewell & Gardner in January this year, working as a Property Consultant in our Rickmansworth sales team. Having gained vital experience in this role, I have recently moved over to the Land Department. Although similar in some aspects, it has been a challenge learning the way the Land Department functions but I am enjoying it very much. I have been able to use the communication and rapport building skills I have built in the sales department and use them when talking to developer about potential sites. I am excited to see where this role takes me and all the new skills I will learn but also to develop on my existing ones.

I have recently joined Swell & Gardner having previously worked as a Recruitment Consultant.  I have always had an interest in Property and wished to pursue a career change. I researched the different Estate Agencies that I would like to work for and Sewell & Gardner stood out from the rest due to the brand value “ People before Profit”. I firmly believe that outstanding customer service will always deliver results.  At the moment I work part time as I have a young daughter and I am enjoying the work life balance that Sewell & Gardner has given me.

After exploring various roles in the customer service sector, I recently returned to the property/ land industry following 6 wonderful years with a local building contractor. I found myself working for a Land acquirement company, which after a year’s service, I was unexpectedly made redundant. I have a passion for land opportunities and enjoyed the role I was doing, so when I had the opportunity to join the Sewell & Gardner’s land team earlier this year, I grabbed it with both hands and haven’t looked back!

I am really enjoying my role as Land Assistant, working alongside Sammy Walton to maximize our customers opportunities and promote the Sewell & Gardner land department within the our local market.  I absolutely love the Sewell & Gardner ethos and brand values and hope to have a long, successful career here.

From brochures to business software and sales support, my goal is to represent the company ethos and make every client experience a positive one.
