Property News: Kieran Takes The Reins At Cubitt & West, Brighton
Kieran James has been appointed manager of the Lewes branch of multiple award-winning estate agents Cubitt & West.
With a total of 13 years’ experience in the property market across East Sussex and Surrey, it’s a case of history repeating itself for Kieran, who previously worked for Cubitt before leaving in 2007 to work with other agencies across the region.
He is delighted to be back again. “In all the time I’ve spent in the property business, I’ve always been impressed by Cubitt & West’s professionalism, which stems from a commitment to training
that is second to none in the industry,” he says. “Not only are they very effective in achieving sales, but they are also totally focused on delivering exemplary customer service. Even though the company has 43 offices across Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire, it’s still a family-owned business, and we all approach our jobs like traditional, local estate agents, rather than as cogs in some big corporate machine.”
No wonder, he adds, that Cubitt & West were named the region’s best estate agents two years running in the Daily Mail Property Awards – or that the firm’s training has also won industry plaudits.
Kieran, 40, is equally happy to be working in Lewes. “It is a fascinating town, with a unique sense of community,” he says. Indeed, one of his first responsibilities on joining was to oversee the selling of gingerbread men, specially baked by members of staff and hand-decorated in the colours of the town’s different bonfire societies, which raised some £260 for children’s charities on November 5th!
As for the local property market, he adds, it is both varied and very buoyant, thanks to the town’s excellent transport links .
Commenting on Ross’s appointment, Senior Operations Director Jon Lock says: “Estate agency is above all a people business, and in addition to our emphasis on training, we have always prided ourselves on recruiting the very best in the business. We’re delighted to welcome back someone of Kieran’s calibre to head up our Lewes office.”
So, if you’re thinking about moving home, why not give Kieran and his team at Cubitt & West a call on 01273 471231 – and experience that award-winning service and professionalism for yourself!
