What a huge overwhelming feeling this was! I began researching the possible roles and positions within estate agency. After speaking with tutors, friends and family, I decided I wanted to find a career path with progression opportunities, in a local company with a great reputation. Having lived in Rickmansworth my whole life, I had come across Sewell & Gardner’s name many times – mainly for their work within the local community & their advertisements. Sewell & Gardner have a fantastic reputation within the community and have won the gold award for their region at The Sunday Times Estate Agency of The Year Awards three years in a row. This was a huge attraction and I was keen to work for such a highly regarded company.
With no experience in this field, I assumed it may be difficult to be considered for a role, however, after sending my CV over to Hannah from Marketing (firstname.lastname@example.org), within a week I was called by Watford Branch Manager, Joe Rylett. I was delighted to have heard back from the one company I wanted to work for, so soon! I was then interviewed for the position of Property Administrator in the new Watford office and was elated to hear I had been offered the position. One month later I started working in the new Watford branch, beginning my career in estate agency. Now 3 months on, I am settled within my role, progressing well and learning more every day. With the guidance of my colleagues in the Watford Office, I have gained key skills and improved my industry knowledge. I hope to progress my career within Sewell & Gardner in the future and am greatly enjoying working here.
