Jodie Chivers
Marketing Manager

Jodie has an artistic eye, and a quirkiness about her photography and marketing. She gets a real kick out of making your bespoke adverts stand out. Having always worked within a customer service role, Jodie is always a popular figure with our vendors and landlords. Having recently started a little family of her own, Jodie first came into our Milton office as a customer, buying her first home from 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!

Kieran Woodward
Marketing Executive

Kieran is the man in charge of showcasing your properties with his fantastic photography skills. Kieran’s attention to detail is second to none, there is no better person you would want in charge of making your property shine. Prior to joining the Makepeace family, Kieran has worked with a customer service-based background for the past six years. He has also recently graduated from University with a degree in Business Management. Kieran also loves to travel and see new places around the world.

CLAIRE JINKS
BRANCH MANAGER

Claire joined us from a retail background and sure has that customer focused approach. You will find her going that extra mile to make sure all 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.

KIERAN MARROW
Sales Manager

Kieran joined our Kidsgrove team at the beginning of 2019 and has instantly become a part of our furniture. Kieran is not only in charge of getting as much money as possible for your property, but he has gained a wealth of industry knowledge allowing him to become a accurate and efficient valuer. Having worked in retail for the last 6 years, Kieran’s attention to detail for customer service is second to none. Kieran is not only an all-round nice chap but has the brains to go with it too having recently graduated from Staffordshire University with a 2:1 Bachelor of Science Degree in Sports & Exercise Science. In his spare time, you would typically find Kieran socialising or playing football with his friends.

JAYDENE THOMPSON
Senior Sales Negotiator

Jaydene is a highly valued member of the team with endless five-star reviews. Jaydene is responsible for negotiating offers and managing sales at both of our Kidsgrove and Alsager branches. Jaydene has previously worked within recruitment so brings a whole load of knowledge and valuable experience with her. Outside of work you would probably find her at the gym, as she loves to keep herself fit. She also has a strong passion for netball playing in one of Stoke’s competitive leagues! We love a graduate here at Samuel Makepeace – with Jaydene having a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physiotherapy.

Maddy Moore
Senior Sales Negotiator

Maddy joined our team in early 2020 with fantastic energy and a passion for delivering great customer service, Maddy is a great asset to our Kidsgrove & Alsager team. Prior to life in the estate agency, Maddy has worked within retail management, so she is confident at resolving problems and providing a professional but friendly service to our customers. In her spare time, you would find Maddy out spending time with her friends on the dancefloor. She also loves a holiday and a little bit of retail therapy!

Milton & Hartshill

STEPHANIE GEORGE
BRANCH 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. 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 loves our busy offices at Milton & Hartshill and is a real asset to the team. He’s a strapping young lad and is outnumbered by the ladies in the office. Jordan oversees 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!)

LOUISE KNIGHT
SENIOR SALES NEGOTIATOR

Louise has a great flare for organisation and a real knack for the personal approach. She has worked at every one of our branches and been with us for several years. What she doesn’t know about moving home is quite frankly not worth knowing! She just loves keeping you in the loop on your property move, and oozes professionalism. We think Louise is a bit of a foodie, as her favourite question is “what are you having for tea?!” Outside the office, Louise’ love is her daughter, and she really dotes over her. When she can, she enjoys meeting up with friends for a good catch up.

Georgia Hall
Viewings Coordinator

Georgia joined the team in early 2020 bringing her exceptional people skills and enthusiasm to the Makepeace family. She has previously worked as part of a cabin crew for Thomas Cook Airlines, so Georgia has mastered the art of talking to customers, but most importantly making them feel comfortable. Georgia oversees showcasing your properties, accompanying viewings, and also negotiating offers. Outside of work hours Georgia is a real sociable individual so you could typically find her at music festivals with her friends. As expected through her previous line of work, Georgia has already visited a lot of interesting cities throughout the world and is keen to see even more!

Lucy Strassman
Sales Negotiator

We were delighted when Lucy joined our Milton & Hartshill team, not just because she is fantastic with customers, but because she brings valuable experience within the Estate Agency industry with her. Lucy loves to keep fit – you might spot Lucy running the roads of Stoke or at the gym! She also has a passion for baking, often bringing samples into the office. Lucy has also recently obtained her Beauty Therapy NVQ Level 3 qualification. She also loves to travel and is keen to see more places.

Alissa Walker
Sales Negotiator

Here we have Alissa who recently joined our Milton & Hartshill team from a recruitment and customer service-based background. Alissa’s roles within the company include negotiating offers on properties, booking viewings and most importantly – getting the best price possible for your home! Alissa is also a keen gym fanatic and in her spare time you would probably find her out drinking cocktails with her friends or dining out with her partner. She loves to explore new places and is probably counting down the days until her next adventure.
