I work with the best team!
First of all, I love the fact that Andrews is owned by two charitable trusts, meaning there is a sense of integrity in the way they provide people with homes. Andrews has a good reputation for their conscience. I like their refreshingly reassuring approach, and since they were established in 1946, they are experienced within the property industry.
The most straightforward way to explain it to people that don’t know what I do is that I am the person who would visit a property to advise landlords on how much they should be renting their property out for.
I like the fact that when I wake up in the morning I don’t know what the day entails for me.
Although I try and add a basic structure to my day, my focus changes daily, from looking at what has hit Rightmove and Zoopla overnight to taking photos and doing floorplans, contacting previous landlords, focusing on applicants or looking at what is needed to hit my targets for the month.
I came back to Andrews after travelling South East Asia and Australia at the end of March 2017, and within less than a year was promoted to Senior Lettings Negotiator.
I think initially one of my biggest challenges was confidence, but the more I have worked within the industry, the more I have seen myself develop and grow.
The training and development at Andrews is fantastic. I would say my favourite course so far has been the ‘At the property' course. I think that it is a course that is useful to anyone office based in a sales and lettings environment, although I had quite a lot of experience as a negotiator it gave me the insight and expertise I needed to become a great valuer.
I would describe the spirit of Andrews as get up and go. Everyone works really hard, yet has a real energy and buzz about property, which I think just reinforces how passionate we all are about our jobs.
You definitely need to work hard and stay focused. It can be a challenging role especially with an unpredictable market at times, but you have to set yourself goals and if you work hard you will see the reward.
I would say you need to be a hard worker, organised and be prepared to work in a sales based environment.
