"Whilst part of my role is to oversee the running of the business, I get most satisfaction from providing excellent customer service to landlords, tenants and vendors as sales and lettings is in my blood". Having obtained a degree in property management, Sean has worked in the industry since 1990 and has worked in a variety of lettings management and sales roles for a major national housing provider and worked at Director level before deciding to join Northwood and open their office in Barnstaple which serves the whole of North Devon, in 2012. Initially the focus was on residential lettings but they have now expanded to include property sales in response to customer demand. "We want to be renowned for providing outstanding service and for being the best lettings and estate agency business in Barnstaple and North Devon."
Sales & Lettings Manager
"Finding someone their ideal home is what I love the most about lettings, It really is satisfying when you go back to see tenants later and they have taken pride in the property and you can see joy that living in a well-managed home brings. It does make a difference, which is why I love being a Lettings Manager with Northwood in Barnstaple. We pride ourselves on providing the best service possible to landlords and tenants across North Devon." Having worked in the property industry since leaving university in 1992 Margaret has vast experience of managing properties and was previously a Senior Regeneration Manager for a large housing developer in the South East. Margaret has been with Northwood in Barnstaple since they opened and is known as ‘Magic Margaret’ because of her ability to find solutions to issues that arise from time to time.
