    Alison Johnson

    Lettings Consultant
    Alison headed our lettings department for many years as a full-time lettings manager. Following a decision in 2010 to move to a part time position she took more of a back-seat role as a consultant working primarily for multiple landlords and our long standing Estate clients. We are delighted that following the departure of a member of the Driffield lettings team she has once again stepped up her hours to take up a more ’hands on’ role in the department. Her vast experience and legal knowledge makes her an essential asset to this busy department.

    Jeanette Kean

    Lettings Property Manager & Sales Negotiator
    Jeanette joined the company in 2005 after working for an estate agency in York. She feels very lucky in that she loves her job and that her skills are in being able to deal with any person and possible situation with understanding and compassion, as she only ever wants to achieve a positive outcome for everyone.
    She considers that If you have to do a little bit extra to get a result for the client, then that’s just part of the job. The most gratifying outcome for Jeanette is handing the keys over on completion day to a “thank you for your help”, or for those who move around a lot to come back and say “I’m back again”, or to receive personal recommendation from a seller’s family or friend.
