Samuel Makepeace Director
Having been in the industry since 2004 and with a track record of owning and running successful Estate Agents throughout the Midlands, there are very few people in the industry who have a comparable breadth of experience in residential sales and valuations. Samuel prides himself on his ability to deliver an outstanding bespoke approach with a proven strategy for success. In his spare time, Samuel somehow finds time for his wife and two daughters, who of course want to be just like their Daddy when they grow up… Sarah Beany and Amanda Lamba… Look out!!!
Louris Dunn MNAEA Director
Louris is joint director of our business and is based in our Milton branch on a day to day basis. With 10 years in the industry under her belt and qualifications from the National Federation of Property Professionals (NFOPP) and the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) respectfully. Louris is from a large close knit family and holds the strongest of family values. Although she would be too modest to accept these compliments I can say with the utmost certainty that she is well liked and respected amongst her peers, colleagues and family. She treats her friends and staff as though they were her own flesh and blood. We feel so lucky to have a director that really is the 'salt of the earth'.
Andrew Hyland Valuations Manager
As an ex professional golfer Andy is no stranger to working with clients at the middle to high end of the market place. Andy draws from 5 years experience of exceptional customer service and team management as the former General Manager of the highly regarded Greenway Hall Golf and Country Club in Stockton Brook. As our reputation for outstanding service continues to grow rapidly, Andy has taken his new role as Valuations Manager by the horns and is bringing superb properties of all sizes to the market day by day. In his spare time (which is few and far between) Andy has swapped his Golf Clubs for the Family Club, and enjoys spending much missed time with his Wife and young Daughter. One of the conditions of Andy joining the team was that he would teach us all to play Golf… seems that he might have lost his touch as the only hole in one he got was at the watering hole on the 19th!
Stephanie George Office Manager
Stephanie has been with the company since day one and has always played an integral part in the successful running of our Milton branch. Stephanie runs an organised and extremely proactive office having years of experience within many aspects of the Customer Service industry, and is currently working towards a number of professional accreditations. Being a Mum of three young children, Stephanie most likely comes to work for a rest, but in her spare time can be found thinking about, working on, or talking about her job… yes… she literally never switches off. I think we have all agreed that our main goal in life is to have the organisational skill and energy of Steph Forget Wonder Woman… meet Super Steph!
Holly Bull Senior Negotiator
Holly Bull joins the team as our Senior Negotiator. Holly has worked for the world leader in customer service, the Walt Disney Company (actually in Florida… Get you Holly!), and truly gets our ethos of providing outstanding service. She has a strong administration background, working in the pensions sector for many years. Having built (the only person I’ve met who’s built her first home), rented, and sold property of her own, Holly was keen to make a career in the property sector and is an integral part of the team Samuel Makepeace.
Carina Collis Property Marketing Manager
Carina is our resident photographer and is in charge of bringing your property to life, aka making the magic happen! She came to us with 10 years marketing experience and a keen eye for detail. Carina runs her own business as well as working with us in the day time, and on the odd evening you may even catch her pouring a pint at her own bar. As well as all this Carina is mum to three young men. They do say if you want something doing right ask a busy person!
Sophie Titley Sales Negotiator
Sophie is the newest addition to our team, but from her work ethic you certainly wouldn’t know it! It’s probably no surprise she’s on board with our outstanding customer service ethos, given her previous wealth of experience in customer facing roles. Her warmth and vibrant nature adds to the already characterful Milton family. Not one to shy away from any task given to her she has become our little lettings guru and has taken this under her wing. When away from hustle and bustle of the office she finds time for the odd pamper session and is always one to have freshly painted nails, she is also a dog mama, looking after two beautiful labs, Reggie and pup Rory. Sophie has already integrated herself into the Samuel Makepeace family and it will be exciting to see her grow with the business.
Madison Shirley Viewings Coordinator
Marvellous Maddison! Enthusiastic, bursting with energy and the perfect candidate to show off your property. In the few short months she’s been with us, we’ve received one compliment after another about her professional manor and positive demeanour. Currently studying Dance and Performing arts at Manchester met University, Maddie is a born performer and a great front woman for the business. Maddison and her other half are keen to take the first step onto the property ladder and she always has her eye on what’s available to buy locally! Having previously worked back of house in the hospitality industry, she is delighted to be in a customer facing role, and probably most excited about her new work wardrobe! She’s ditched her apron for a snappy suit and a handbag full of property keys!
Katie Sromek Negotiator
Katie is our fun and funky new negotiator. Fresh from 5 years in a customer services role, and having worked prior with children with challenging behaviour, Katie is well equipped to deal with the fast paced, demanding role that we have laid out for her! Mum to a gorgeous little lad, Katie balances mum life with her passion for make up and her love of sport. Shooting for the net with local netball team ‘A-Stars’ makes us sure that we truly have a team player on our hands!
Dino Vella Valuations/Lettings Director
Heading up our new Kidsgrove office and Lettings department, Dino brings with him over 10 years experience and a wealth of knowledge from the property sector. Having previously set up and run successful companies specialising in Energy Advice, Property Inventories, and Property Auctions, he knows his stuff, in fact we value his industry reputation so highly that we are even willing to forgive him for his choice in football team! Dino is a family man and enjoys quality time with his wife and three children. In his spare time (which is almost never) you might spy him, pint in hand enjoying a local indi gig, or at the football
Louise Knight Senior Sales Negotiator
Heading up our Leek branch, Louise has a great flare for organisation and a real knack for the personal approach. Another one of our resident mummies, Louise’s home life can be as fast paced as our office, keeping up with her 4 year old daughter! We all know mums are great at multi-tasking, and Louise is no exception! Putting her hand easily to all daily tasks, the professionalism she has is in her nature, and we have no doubt she will go far in this industry! We aren’t sure how happy her other half will be with us, when she’s redecorating every week though! But that’s comes part and parcel with the job.
Connor Blackhurst Office Manager
Fresh faced, and oozing personality… he really is the firecracker of the family! More than willing, Connor is happy to put his hand to anything – and will always strive to give 100%. Whether it’s killing you with kindness, or smooth talking, he won’t beat around the bush and that’s what we love about him! With a plethora of customer service experience under his belt already at such a young age, nothing is ever too much trouble. His infectious character ensures that you come in as a client, but will be leaving as a friend!
