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. Stephanie is known within the office as ‘Carol’ as her mathematical skills are second only to Carol Vorderman herself. Out of the office, Stephanie is busy being a mum to three beautiful young children who most certainly keep her on her toes… in fact she most likely comes to work for a rest!
JORDAN MASSEY Property Valuations Manager
Jordan joined the team earlier this year, quickly adapting to our busy office and is now one of our senior members of the Milton team. He’s a strapping young lad at a tender age of 23 but doesn’t seem to be scared off by all the hormones in the office…Jordan is in charge of valuing your properties and is keen to deliver a fantastic customer service. Prior to this position, he had managed a Pawnbrokers and has recently graduated from Staffordshire University with a 2:1 Bachelor of Arts Degree in Terrorism and Criminology. Outside of work you’ll probably find Jordan cluttering a side line or shouting at the TV as he is a massive football fan, and for his sins, he’s a big Port Vale supporter (someone has to be!)
Sophie Titley Sales Negotiator
Since joining the Makepeace team early in 2017, Sophie is now a part of the furniture and is flourishing in her Sales Negotiator role within the Milton office. Sophie has a wealth of experience in customer services from her previous roles and this shines through on a daily basis with her warm and friendly character. Sophie is not one to shy away from a task and is always willing to go that extra mile to ensure all our customers are happy. Away from the hustle and bustle of the office, Sophie loves to be pampered and is always the one to have freshly painted nails, however, with the recent arrival of her first baby, it will be interesting to see how long this continues.

Jodie Chivers Sales Negoiator
Jodie has settled into life here at our Milton branch very quickly and is one of the friendliest and most pleasant people you could ever wish to come across. Having worked within a customer serviced based background for the past 6 years, Jodie is always a popular figure with our existing vendors. Having recently started a little family of her own, Jodie first came into our Milton office as a customer after buying her first home through us with her partner. Never shying away from any task given to her, Jodie has fast become a vital asset to us here at Samuel Makepeace. In her spare time, Jodie enjoys going to the gym and keeping fit but her main priority would be looking after her little boy who often pops into the office to say hello!

CLAIRE JINKS Branch Manager
Claire joined us recently from a retail background and sure has that customer focused approach. You will find her going that extra mile to make sure all of our customer’s expectations are not only met, but exceeded. A Mummy of two, nothing pleases Claire more than spending time with her family. In her work life, Claire gets her motivation from securing our vendor’s successful sale, and letting our landlord’s properties.
Louise Knight Senior Sales Negotiator
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 comes part and parcel with the job.

Kieran joined our Kidsgrove team at the beginning of 2019 and has instantly become a part of our furniture.
