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.
Neil Spencer Head of Lettings
Having worked within property for 13 years I was approached to run the lettings department at Sewell & Gardner and once I met the team I knew where my next role had to be. I have worked for a number of corporate and independent estate agents over the years and feel this experience will blend well with the hardworking team already in place. My role is to oversee lettings on a day to day basis across all 4 offices and grow market share for an already well known and successful brand, with key values that epitomise the ethos within this family run business.
Kate Woodward Senior Branch Manager
I joined the Sewell and Gardner team having previously worked and trained with a corporate company. I started my career in Estate Agency in 1999 starting as a trainee and working my way up to Senior Branch Manager.
I am passionate about giving exceptional customer service and achieving the best possible price for my clients along with honest advice, empathy and understanding for all situations. I will always go the extra mile and my motto is Client For Life.
Sammy Walton Land Manager
I joined Sewell & Gardner back in 2014, originally working as the Operations Manager I was responsible for the smooth running of the business, with efficient systems and processes in place.
With a background in conveyancing and a keen interest in development, when the opportunity arose to head up to Land department I was keen to get stuck in. With a strong team behind me and working in an honest manner with knowledge to back it up has been a testament to the department’s success to date. Our systems and processes are streamline and we continue to learn daily with updates on planning policies, the local plan and general industry updates.
Kevin Anderson New Homes Manager
Having worked in estate agency in the local area for over 16 years, I joined the Sewell & Gardner team in 2016. Having worked as Watford Branch Manager for the last two years I have now taken on the busy role as New Homes Manager. 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. I am very much looking forward to meeting new developers and seeing sites progress from start to finish.
David Bonnar Branch Manager
I have recently joined the Sewell & Gardner team as Branch Manager of the busy Watford office. I moved into estate agency 12 years ago having worked a long career in the banking and financial service sectors. I focus on listening to my clients; tailoring their must haves to our available stock and will always strive to offer the best customer experience possible. For me a happy vendor is key and I rely on my clients referring our business to their own friends and family.

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.

Emily Morgan Senior Property Consultant
I have always admired estate agents and in 2014 I was given the opportunity to work for Sewell & Gardner at the Chorleywood Branch, before moving over to our Rickmansworth office shortly after. In 2017 I was delighted to be promoted to the role of Senior Property Consultant and I have recently moved over to our Watford Branch. My role entails carrying out viewings, agreeing and progressing sales as well as carrying out valuations. I think that my experience working in different branches within Sewell & Gardner has broaden my knowledge and improved my skill set.
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 always had a passion for architecture and design and been interested by developments whilst I’ve been growing up and having grown up in Watford I have extensive knowledge of the local and surrounding areas. The idea of buying a new home is very exciting and I look forward to showing prospective buyers around our developments which always offer a huge number of incentives and perks. Understanding people’s requirements is absolutely essential to finding the perfect development for them whether it’s their first property or the best investment opportunity for them. For me, the thing I enjoy the most about my job is handing somebody the key to their brand-new home.
Tiffany Salmon Property Consultant
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.

Having spent a considerable sum of my adult life working within the property industry, I can safely say that what was once upon a time job has now become a passion.

Anna Barrett Land Assistant
I started working for Sewell & Gardner early in 2017, I started 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 developers about potential sites. In my short time within the department I have been involved in numerous site acquisitions and disposals with many more in the pipeline.

Sara McGlynn Office Administrator
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.
