Being a ‘local lad’, has always given me immense pride in having worked in and around the town as an estate agent since 1991. My connections run deeper through sport, having played football, cricket and rugby since my school days at St Dunstans. I’m married to Karen and between us we have three grown up children, Ben, Ollie and Maddie and also cats at home. In spare time I am a keen follower of horse racing and have an interest in a couple of share owned hooves!

I have deep roots within the area with my father having been brought up in Compton Dundon and my mother in Butleigh. My parents settled 45 years ago in Henley near High Ham. Other than a brief spell in Bath my estate agency career since 1990 has always been based in mid Somerset. Outside of work I am a regular gym goer in Wells and Street and enjoy my garden and travel (when time allows!) with my partner of 20 years.

I have been positioned in our Street office for a little over a decade now and grew up locally within the Polden Villages. I haven’t managed to stray very far! This said, whilst it doesn’t always go hand-in-hand with estate agency, travelling the world has always been high on my list of priorities and I’ve been lucky to have experienced as much of it as I have. You’ll find me ever willing to talk about anything sport related, but you’ll struggle to stop me once I get going!

Being of northern roots I moved from Cheshire many years ago and have enjoyed a career in estate agency through many challenging times! I settled in Street and am still living locally – within walking distance of the office. My son, his wife and two super grandchildren live in Bristol, which is close enough for frequent visits and I spend many happy times with them. At home and in my spare time I love going to see live theatre, and I enjoy reading, gardening, and socialising with friends.

I started working in estate agency back in 1990 in Weston-Super-Mare, this was soon after my son was born. Since then, I have worked for several companies in Congresbury, Yatton, Axbridge and for the last 17 years here in Street for h&o. I have held many positions within the businesses but my current roll conducting most of the viewings and negotiating sales is what I enjoy. I have a grown-up son and daughter and spend my free time on our allotment with my husband.

I have been working h&o since January 2021. After 20 years in Leisure & Recreation I decided to take the leap and have not looked back. I am mainly office based but can turn my hand to whatever is required of me, which is needed in such a busy office. I am continuously learning on the job as there is so much involved and no two days are the same. Working part time fits perfectly with being a busy mum of two and accommodates an ideal work life balance.

I’ve loved being part of the h&o family since 2014. Having had a few roles I have many strings to my bow, and I love the variety that estate agency offers. I am born and bred in Somerset and having a young family I feel perfectly placed to advise on living in the area. I relish the buzz of a sale but above all else am people focused, I have a friendly yet professional approach and take great pride in supporting sellers and buyers alike through the process.

I joined the company in 1998 and have enjoyed watching it grow and change over the decades. Based in the Glastonbury office I especially love welcoming back old clients and helping them with their changing housing needs, the office has an unusual view of the high street and is always musical! In my spare time I am also musical, and I sing in a village choir, I also enjoy reading, walking our family dog, and spending time with my family and friends.

I am a newer member of the team and have worked part time for h&o since 2021. I am based in the Glastonbury office, which is always good fun but also have a lot of contact with the Street office where I live. I grew up in the local area and moved to Street 8 years ago. At home I have a lovely family, and I really enjoy the outdoors. When I am not working, I like to spend lots of quality time with my two children and family.

I was born in the city of Wells and after a time away I returned to the city in 1994 as I love it so much and missed it when I was not living here! I started working for h&o based in the Wells office in 2003 and really enjoy being part of a friendly and busy team. In my spare time away from work I enjoy Pilates, watching rugby, walking Lily our Hungarian Vizsla and spending time with my new grandson and family.

June Evans,

I have worked for h&o for 18 years and have seen a lot of changes based in the Wells office. The office on the High Street is very convenient to me as I also live in the centre of Wells. Outside of work I have three sons and three grandchildren all of whom take up a great deal of my time. When I am not working, I love reading, knitting, eating out and meeting with friends, and of course spending time with the grandchildren.

Being a local girl Somerset born and bred I originally attended school in Shepton Mallet and I started my career in estate agency back in 1992 originally as a Saturday person and then progressed, over the years, to a full-time position in the Wells office after spending some time also working in the Street office. As a mum to three grown up children I enjoy helping with the young grandchildren and spending any spare time baking and with my husband walking, travelling, and entertaining.

I’ve lived in Somerset for the last decade and love what the county has to offer. From festivals, hills, to the levels and the sea. Spending time with my family is so important and keeps me busy. I love swimming, cycling, and running and have raced triathlon for more than 20 years from sprint to ironman distance. I’ve worked in estate agency for over seven years having previously worked in the fitness and outdoor industries and thoroughly enjoy the daily challenges of working with the public!

I have been in the residential lettings industry now for eight years and have been Lettings Manager at h&o since 2015. Outside of work, my life is standard but not in that boring “work, eat, sleep, repeat” kind of a way. I am married and we have one little boy who keeps me on my toes! Wow, what a reality check motherhood is. Aside from the whirlwind of home, I am extremely passionate about my job and providing a professional service whilst still being down to earth and relatable.

I have been with h&o now for several years working my way towards becoming a Senior Negotiator within the team. Street is my hometown, and I am born and bred Somerset. I love the variety that each day offers in the busy office. My favourite hobbies are playing football, watching Formula 1 racing, exercising, and socialising with friends. I have big plans for the future and am soon hoping to move out of the family home and get a place of my own.

My role predominantly is to carry out viewings and I love meeting new people and helping them to find the home they want. Outside of the office I have two children, who I love spending time with and who constantly keep my on my toes. Outside of work, my favourite hobbies are attending concerts and listening to my favourite artists and live music.

Beyond the office, I am married to Mark and have four children who keep me constantly busy, so coming to work is light relief. Outside of work I enjoy family walks with our dogs, football matches, dance lessons and competitions, swimming lessons and everything else in between with the children. I enjoy my job h&o, every day is different with new challenges. I especially like being part of the Lettings team, we are all here to provide a great service to you.

I have worked for the company since its inception and along with the stalwarts of Sue, Gill and Nikki I am one of the old guards. I’m originally from the Midlands and have worked my way down country and now have been happily settled here in Somerset with my partner and our springers for over 28 years, the dogs are a great distraction from work!

My career in property started in 2007 in Somerton. I thought I would give the business a go and it’s still clear I love what I do. I’ve worked in sales and lettings across the area but I’ve boomeranged back to Somerton, where I feel at home. I grew up in Kingsdon and now live in Langport taking full advantage of the river Parrett, when running or on my paddle board. I enjoy time with friends and family, I never say no to a pub roast and a large Malbec!

Walton born and raised, in 2022 I moved to Street with my boyfriend. Previously I worked as a teaching assistant but have always been interested in property, and am excited to see where this new role takes me, and I am looking forward to learning from the incredible H&O team. I am based in the new Somerton office and love the town. In my spare time I spend time with my family and friends, love going to festivals and concerts and I try to keep fit!

I consider myself a Somerton person having spent my childhood and a large chunk of my adult life living in the town. I’ve always had a keen interest in property and began my estate agency career in 2003 in the same Somerton office where h&o are now based. I like to think I have local knowledge and interest which helps me provide the best service to our clients. Outside of work I enjoy spending time by the sea and watching Yeovil Town and Somerset Cricket .
