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.
Emily Armstrong New Homes Manager
I joined Sewell & Gardner in 2006 and quickly gained an enthusiasm for New Homes moving into the department after two years in residential sales. New Homes is my passion and I love to be involved in building relationships with developers from the earliest stage of their scheme. This is when I believe our service truly excels above and beyond the service offered by any other agent.
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 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!
Jackie Simpson Rickmansworth Branch Manager
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.

For me a happy vendor is key and I rely on my clients referring our business to their own friends and family.
Chris Wood Croxley Branch Manager
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.

I first joined Sewell & Gardner in 2012 and after spending two years the Office Administrator in the Rickmansworth branch, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to go travelling. After returning 18 months later, I was delighted to return to Sewell & Gardner and soon became a Senior Office Administrator.

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.
Tiffany Salmon New Homes 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.

Ollie Jimminson Property Consultant
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.

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.

I have a firm belief that one reaps what they sow & I always give customers and clients alike an empathic service. I live in Watford with my wife and daughter and have an intimate knowledge of Watford and the surrounding areas.
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.

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.
