Adrian Gay Consultant

I am delighted and privileged to have been part of the Miller family for over thirty years and have seen so many changes in the industry I love, in that time. Despite this the one constant has been the passion and enthusiasm of the Millers which remains as strong today as I remember those thirty years ago. I have been lucky to have worked in a number of branches in a variety of roles over the years and most latterly as the Branch Manager in Helston. Having decided to become semi-retired I have handed the reins to Richard but will continue my involvement with the branch and Millerson as a Consultant. Born and raised in Cornwall I am a very proud Cornishman and enjoy all aspects of Cornish life. I am a member of a local Cornish male voice choir and enjoy music and concerts. With a young family I enjoy spending time with them and as a keen sportsman regularly watch Truro City and local cricket matches.

Jamie Hendy Sales Negotiator

As a proud Cornishman who is passionate about the property industry, I am delighted to have recently joined the Miller family firm as a Sales Negotiator in Helston. I was educated at Helston Community College prior to commencing study at Plymouth University and successfully achieving a DipHE in Business Management. Subsequently I worked in a number of engaging roles across both the private and public sectors before being offered the opportunity by the Miller family firm in 2016 to fulfil my long held aspiration of working in estate agency. I feel proud to be part of an organisation that is dedicated to customer service and embracing modern technologies. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and indulging my passion for DIY, particularly stone-masonry and interior design.

Tegen Beard Sales Negotiator

I studied at Helston Community College, where I was privileged to be given the role of Head Girl. I continued my studies at their sixth form before deciding to move into the working world. I have always had an interest in property and so combining that with my 2 and a half years in farm sales, estate agency stuck me as a career I wanted to pursue. Since starting I have not looked back and feel very fortunate to have joined the Miller family firm. I am Cornish born and bred and feel very proud to represent a local, family run agency in an area I know and love well. As a farmer’s daughter I truly love the beauty of the county and in my spare time enjoy exploring the stunning coastline and rural aspects that surround me. I am very into fitness and enjoy an active social life. I am looking forward to furthering my career with Millerson.

Janet Pennington Administrator

I feel very proud to have been part of the Miller family firm for over twenty years and currently am the Branch administrator in Helston. I am lucky to be part of such a friendly and professional branch and in such a beautiful part of the county. The role of administrator has changed significantly over the years with numerous legislative changes being implemented meaning that an eye and attention to detail is imperative. I was born in Cornwall and have spent my whole life living and working in the Helston area so I am not only very familiar with the area but am fortunate to know so many people whose homes we have helped to sell over the years. As I grew up on the family farm my time was divided between working there and playing in the local brass band. Today my spare time is taken up with researching my family history, walking and exploring the local Cornish coastline and I also enjoy to travel.
