As Chairman and Senior Partner of Millerson I am as passionate about Estate Agency now as I have always been. I am immensely proud to be part of a business selling homes in Cornwall over three generations. Whilst times have changed over the generations we still retain our core values and traditions whilst embracing the fast paced change that technology affords. On a personal note I am still actively involved in the business and as a member of RICS am kept busy across the Duchy! When not travelling around the county on business my garden keeps me busy and when given the chance Heather and I enjoy walking in Switzerland.
I have enjoyed being a Partner in the company since its inception and have loved watching the business and staff grow and develop. I am as actively involved as ever, mainly on the accounts side, but also relish meeting the public and customers at events like the Royal Cornwall Show and occasionally assisting in one of our network of branches. I was once a very keen motor sport and equestrian enthusiast but now enjoy the more sedentary and relaxing times to be had in the garden!
I am delighted and honoured to continue the traditions of the Miller name synonymous with property in Cornwall for three generations. I am privileged to work with an exceptional group of people who I consider to be extended family and our ethos of passionate about property and people is as true today as it has ever been. Our network of branches offers a multi-disciplined business which we believe offers customers all they require whatever their property needs. I head up the commercial arm of the Company which encompasses all business and commercial requirements from Land’s End to the Devon Borders. Away from work I am just completing the south west coast path from Minehead to Poole.
I first started working with the Miller family in 1995, when they were a client, and joined the company in 2004 becoming a Partner in 2015. The decision to join was easy as the Miller family’s enthusiasm for property and its staff was so infectious and nothing has changed to this day! I am Cornish born and bred, from a local farming and building family, with a strong Management Accounts background and I thoroughly enjoy the vagaries of the property world with the many challenges it provides. Away from the accounts department I am a proud supporter of Camborne RFC as well as enjoying our beautiful county with my family.
I have been involved and worked with the Miller family for the last three decades and needless to say I love my role! Based at head office in Truro I assist the partners and head office staff in an administrative and support function so good organisational and planning is a given. Working at Millerson keeps me busy during the day and I am equally busy outside the office. I have three small grandsons, enjoy reading and travelling and have been known to enjoy the odd game of pool!
My career with the Miller family started in 1981 and I have undertaken various roles and responsibilities over the years. I currently look after the Truro, Falmouth, St Austell, Liskeard and Launceston branches which provide a diverse and interesting portfolio of homes in such wonderful locations. Whilst at its heart Millerson is a traditional family firm its increasing network of branches enables us to keep up with the latest trends and technologies enabling us to satisfy all our customer demands and needs. I am a proud Cornishman, with my family roots tracing back to the port of Padstow, and when away from the office I am a keen musician and in particular love playing the guitar.
My estate agency career spans two decades and I currently look after Camborne, Redruth, Helston, Hayle, St Ives and Penzance in the very heart of the Duchy. I previously worked for a large corporate Estate Agency and joined Millerson to put people – staff and customers alike – ahead of profit! Building on the Company traditions and proud heritage of such a history is a delight and I constantly strive for innovative ways to enhance the customer and staff experience. Away from the branches I am a crew member of the St Ives Lifeboat and when not helping others in difficulty I love to be in the water myself!
I joined the company in 2006 initially as a Lettings Negotiator and in 2013 I was promoted to head up, integrate and develop the Lettings part of the business. I am responsible for the whole business across the 12 branch network as we look after tenants and landlords from the Devon border right through the county to Land’s End. I am very fortunate to work with the Miller family as they and all the staff have embraced Lettings from day one and their commitment and investment enables me and the team to provide a high quality level of service our to our Landlords and Tenants. When time allows I am always on the lookout for the next adventure and love to travel to far flung and exotic locations.
I had a long and successful career as a teacher, finishing with fifteen very happy years as head of a local independent prep school. Throughout this time, as the wife of Jeremy our operations partner, I inevitably had some involvement with the family business. In 2016, with our children now grown up, I took the decision to have a change of career and leave teaching to become part of the Millerson team. The move was invigorating and exciting; I had plenty to learn, but there are a surprising number of skills which I was able transfer from one role to the other.
I started my career with Millerson in 2011 and have worked my way through the ranks from trainee lettings negotiator to Redruth Lettings Manager. Following my maternity leave I now work alongside Katie Law as the Business Development Assistant at head office. My enthusiasm for all aspects of lettings is second to none and I am looking forward to embarking on my new position.
I originally worked for the Miller family many years ago and re-joined the company in 2010 working alongside Simon and Heather as part of the accounts team. It is an incredibly varied and challenging role supporting the team and providing the best service to our staff, customers and contractors but I love the diversity of the role and there is never a dull day! Away from the office I enjoy looking for new places to eat out and visiting our spectacular beaches and pounding the coastal path with family and friends.
