Meet the team – SURBITON
Jay founded HJC in 1998 in Surbiton and then opened Thames Ditton in 2000. He has thirty years experience in estate agency in the corporate sector and as an independent. Having his own estate agency allows him to help people move house without the baggage of a large organisation and all the non essential overheads which get in the way of day to day contact with his clients and colleagues. Jay is married with four grown up children and now he no longer plays rugby and cricket he has become an expert spectator.
With many years’ experience, Suzanne, our Sales Manager, brings her vast knowledge of the local area which, when combined with her exuberance and professionalism, makes for a positive result each time. The many hidden snags are smoothly ironed out – involving vendor, solicitor and purchaser – with little problem – so as to make each transaction as stress free as possible. Suzanne will remember each client and property in detail, so that any further queries are easily answered before too long.
10 years ago Tuesday made the move from Clapham to Thames Ditton with her husband to start a family – and never looked back. With 2 boys happily attending TD Junior School, she has immersed herself thoroughly into village life whilst working as a freelancer in graphic design and marketing. Having grown up in a rural village in the country, she loves the small community feel, yet on the doorstep of so much. As a keen runner and wannabe triathlete, she couldn’t ask for more with Bushy Park and the Thames tow path a stone’s throw from her house.
Hannah, with over 8 years’ experience, brings a wealth of lettings knowledge. She oversees the lettings team making sure everything runs efficiently and smoothly. Hannah thrives at winning new business and loves to create a friendly yet professional atmosphere in the office, so do pop in for a cup of tea if passing!
