Vision and Mission
Millerson is a family-run, independent estate, letting and property management agency covering Cornwall and West Devon. By combining traditional values and service with modern technologies we ensure that our service is second to none. Our experienced staff have extensive knowledge of the local housing market and legislation, which enables them to steer their clients safely through their property transactions. Many things have altered over the three decades that Millerson has been operating, but our absolute commitment to providing a top-quality service has never changed. Our network of local branch offices is spread across the whole of Cornwall and we offer, as standard, free valuations, property advice, accompanied viewings, constant feedback, no upfront costs, advertising on major portals, in-house photography and a tailored approach to match your needs.
The Miller family launched Millerson in 1991 as Miller & Son Estate Agents, with one office in Tavistock. Heather and Geofrey Miller, along with their son, Jeremy, would travel daily from their home in Truro to man the office. Long hours and long distances followed, indeed Jeremy’s car covered so many miles that it could have reached the moon and back! However, the effort paid off as, now trading as Millerson, they have built a thriving business with offices across Cornwall, and deal not only with residential sales but also lettings and commercial properties. However, the association of the Miller family with property did not start in 1991, indeed, it can be traced to Geofrey’s father Reginald George Miller who founded a development company, Devon & Cornwall Estates back in the 1930s. Geofrey followed in his father’s footsteps, eventually taking over the firm in the 1950s and building it into a leading Cornish estate agency. When this was sold in 1990 Geofrey, always looking for a new project, started a new agency, this time in partnership with his wife Heather and his son Jeremy. The rest, as they say, is history.
Meet the Senior Management Team
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.
Partnership PA and Marketing Manager
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.
Paul Le Bas
Sales Business Development Manager
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!
Lettings Business Development Manager
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.
