Meet the team
I left Forest School in 1979 & rather fell into Estate Agency after the army decided it could defend the country without my help! I worked with Michael Hardy when he was a director at Nicholas Estate Agents & then joined him when he started his own firm, Michael Hardy, the company of which I am now Managing Director. I have witnessed many changes in the town over the last 30 yrs: booms, busts & everything in between. When I'm not in the office I like to go cycling & I also play golf (badly!).

I have worked for Michael Hardy since 2006, originally as a member of the Crowthorne team. Having enjoyed growing up in Crowthorne myself, I moved back when my three children were very young and they have all attended the local schools. Now they are older and heading off to university, allowing me a little more time to myself! When not working I am generally happiest outside working on my garden or out on a long walk, whatever the weather, with my dog Hettie.
