I started in the financial services industry in 2002 and have worked my way up to become the Director of Estate and Property Ltd.  Although our head office is in Bentham near Lancaster I am currently living in West Oxfordshire. Relocating has given me the opportunity to expand our business and I am enjoying getting to meet lots of new people in and around Witney. I can be contacted directly on 07818436325 or email
