Meet the team
Oliver Bishop MARLADirector
I’m Oliver Bishop, founder and driving force at Elliot Oliver. I’m passionate about property and obsessive about attention to detail – especially when your property dream is involved. I lead and support my team strongly as they deliver the bespoke service you deserve. My mantra? ‘Take care of clients; treat everyone as individuals’ – from property’s high-flyers to the despairing tenant I once talked back from the brink… My background? Five years’ managerial and directorial roles in Cheltenham and Birmingham agencies. Managing an Iranian businessman’s 200-plus properties. Nine years’ senior and area management for Lidl and Tesco. And being a buy-to-let landlord since 2004. That’s the experience at your disposal. I’m hands on and rarely switch off. Home means emailing clients and checking markets. ‘9 to 5’ means leading from the front: viewings, marketing, vendor and landlord meetings, and property inspections. Above all, making sure you enjoy an exceptional property service. It’s not all work. R&R is socialising with my girlfriend, friends and family, Lady Antebellum or Andrea Bocelli on Play, UFC martial arts on TV, cars, interior design and revitalising travel..
Justin Lawrence MARLADirector
I’m Justin, co-owner of Elliot Oliver, lettings specialist, weekend ‘forest warrior’, husband of Kerry, Seth’s dad and pre dawn walker of Hugo and Jasper. There’s Diana Krall and The Lighthouse Family on the car stereo, 25 years in property on my CV and The Thomas Crown Affair in my DVD library (the Pierce Brosnan remake: knocks socks off the original!). Though Cheltenham’s the centre of my world, I’ve Welsh blood in my vains! So guess what? My passion, when I’m not golfing, footballing or doing triathlon, is… Rugby! And property, especially lettings. My guiding principles after managing hundreds of homes? Phone on, communicate, focus on you and treat you as I’d like to be treated. Result? The special rapport that secures your dream property or a profitable sale. Elliot Oliver wowed me with their fresh, honest approach to property. And the enlightened mix of technology and a comfortable welcome that’s more like home than being at a typical estate agent. It’s all true (or I wouldn’t be here). Call and discover for yourself. I don’t bite! Not even when summoned to a leaky pipe en route to my wife’s maternity ward bedside… That’s customer care: my way; the Elliot Oliver way.
Simon ThompsonSales Manager
I love the challenge of selling for a new, growing, property business in a market like Cheltenham. When I heard about Elliot Oliver I just knew I had to be their sales manager. I’d been working as a senior branch manager for years and brought a wide knowledge of residential sales in my hometown of Bristol and Gloucestershire. I’m loving Regency Cheltenham with its amazing variety of properties and fantastic clients. Along with getting my head around early-morning networking breakfasts, I’m even developing a soft spot for The Robins (but it’ll never match my lifelong passion for Bristol City). Whether at the peak of the property boom or through more challenging times, I’ve always practiced honest customer service and worked hard to give every client a positive experience. Selling and letting property is a way of life, not just a job. My favourite aspects? Socialising and meeting new people is great. So is selling your property above asking price – you’d be surprised how often we do it. And at the end of another busy day? Nothing beats quality time with my partner and young son, catching up on sports on TalkSport, imagining owning a Koenigsegg or enjoying a round of golf.
Vanessa BrooksSenior Property Manager
The biggest lessons I learned in property letting before joining Elliot Oliver were the importance of honesty and following up everything. Joining such an ambitious small property business has challenged me in new ways compared to the large companies I worked for before – and the winner is you, our property client. That’s because handling all aspects of our office management and property co-ordination uses my experience like nothing I’ve done before. Cheltenham’s a world away from Southport where I grew up. But my experience, attention to detail, unflappability and problem solving are key to your rewarding property-management experience. When we work together, look forward to my northern warmth, integrity, professionalism and efficiency. Like my colleagues, I’ll dirty my hands too – I had to when a tenant left dirty crocks in a property and I called in after work to spirit them away before a new occupier arrived… it’s all in a day’s work. Then it’s the gym for me, Calvin Harris or Maceo Plex on the stereo, and home to whatever sport my boyfriend’s enjoying – or World of Warcraft. Yes! I’ve a competitive streak; we should get a lime green Elliot Oliver tank to help us demolish the competition.
John TaylorProperty Consultant
I joined Elliot Oliver in 2015 with a background in senior-level Wholesale appliance sales and property letting. I love the challenge, the team’s integrity and our amazing customers. When we meet, you’ll notice that I’m ultra-focused, whatever I’m doing. It’s the same whether I’m finding you the best rental property, looking for life’s next lesson, reading Napoleon Hill’s ‘Think and Grow Rich’ or immersed in an Ed Sheeran CD. I’m always looking for ways to a better, more helpful, consultative sale. I’ve even seen The Wolf of Wall Street six times and love it’s positive lessons for anyone in business. My focus is on getting to really know and understand you and finding new ways to do ‘better’ better for you. That’s what excites me. Your dream rental’s out there, in a stylish contemporary property or one of Cheltenham’s fascinating Regency masterpieces. I’ll find it for you. In my book, successful people do what other people won’t. No challenge is too difficult – if it’s a tough one, it just means I need to work out how to improve. But not at any cost, because integrity is everything and I only get one chance to prove it. And I will.
My role as Elliot Oliver’s ‘Saturday girl’ belies the admin and client care skills I bring to welcome you and give the weekend’s best ‘meet and greet’ service in Cheltenham property. I’m a rower, for whom the Oxford and Cambridge boat race is the year’s sporting highlight. Like a perfectly coxed eight, our team is surging forward on the local property scene. It’s an exciting time to be on Elliot Oliver’s start-up team. Learning the property business perfectly complements my weekday work in recruitment. And the client-liaison skills that are vital when matching candidates to jobs are equally important in property sales and letting. Although I’m only in on Saturdays, my passion for property and meeting people makes this a favourite part of the week. It’s always exciting to see the new properties since last weekend. Then there’s your viewing or valuation to book in, office administration and marketing, and listening attentively to your property requirements. I love it. And when I’m not at work? I’ll be at the gym, attending keep fit and Zumba, or relaxing with my partner, friends and family.
Abi BhurruthSales Administrator
Take one sales and letting professional; add admin hat and fade up the Deep House soundtrack. I’m Abi, busy co-ordinating Elliot Oliver’s sales department to make sure everything runs smoothly! I thrive on Oliver’s vision and leadership. And being able to shake up local property markets. We’re an amazing team for marketing your property: experienced; customer focused and no estate agency stereotypes anywhere. I’ve worked in property since 2009, from handling administration to managing a lettings department. In fact, I’m the only one of us who’s previously launched a property biz. Honesty, communication and never over-promising guide my work. I’ve seen most things during my career, including an irate tenant camped in my office (before Elliot Oliver) while my plumber replaced a condemned boiler that was supposedly safety tested. It wasn’t our fault that it failed certification the morning the family were due to move, but I stayed on until everything was sorted at 11 pm! Our whole team’s like that – we do whatever’s needed. Fortunately, not every night’s a late one, I enjoy time with my gorgeous little boys, football-mad ‘big boy’, or supper and a chilled glass of vino with friends.
Karolina MisiukiewiszSales & Lettings Co-ordinator
Hi! Cześć! I’m Karolina, Sales & Lettings Co-ordinator, Jess Glynne fan, no sports allegiance and I melt around animals! Whether in English or polskie, I mean business – and love being part of our professional, competitive and refreshing approach to property. I take no nonsense, especially from myself! No-one’s tougher on me than me; always pushing to exceed expectations, keep you updated and make you feel special. I love leaving people saying ‘Wow!’ Impossible? Can’t? I don’t know the meaning of the words. I’ll ask ‘how?’, or for colleagues’ help, but if something’s in my power to do for you, I’ll find a way. Yes, I’m a ‘bit’ determined as you understated Brits say. Detail minded too; an efficiency and customer service perfectionist. It’s served me well in property. I love every minute; the variety of Cheltenham homes; the lovely people like you… I’m not ‘Duracell Bunny’ all the time; I balance professional drive with approachability and patience. And relaxation at evenings and weekends with my lovely hubby, gorgeous kids and puppy as we walk Leckhampton Hill, make authentic bigos or dream about American monster trucks. Oliver, could we have one in company colours please?
Georgy PhillipsHead of Accounts
Administration and accounting support for a young, vibrant team takes calmness, customer focus, integrity and loads of property experience. That’s me, Georgy! Years in sales and lettings accounting means you’re in confident hands for bills and payments. My eyes are on every penny of rents and deposits. And count on me to be calm and meticulous with other admin – from contractor liaison to helping with business-critical projects. After hours, a passion for pole and boxing fitness, aerial hoops and silks renews me after another day with a successful property agency. And when I’m not emulating Charlize Theron in the Dior ad, I’m probably cheering-on two rugger-mad sons … Nothing fazes me (not even tricky numbers or stuck lifts). Thinking on my feet and handling the unexpected probably comes from growing up in an army family! As does seeing different perspectives, knowing when to speak (or keep quiet) and keeping promises. Meeting lovely people, deadlines and sales targets, and giving great service make my perfect day. Actually, complete perfection would be an Aston DB9 (matching our sleek professionalism) to drive home – while unwinding with Radio 1 and celebrating another day at Cheltenham’s best sales and lettings agency! Oliver?
