Clive's first position in Estate Agency was back in 1975 as office junior and tea boy with a small local independent. 40 years later, Clive has seen all the ups and downs of the local property market but, according to his colleagues in our Haslemere estate agency, still makes an excellent cup of tea! Clive's obsession with Estate Agency is combined with obsessions for DIY and gardening, which seem to take up every spare available second. Clive shares his life with his wife and three children, and that's not to mention a house full of dogs, a cat, 4 guinea pigs and numerous horses. Clive also wants it mentioned that he is a keen Arsenal fan.
Desmond Parker MNAEA
Desmond trained as a surveyor, but soon found he enjoyed the buzz of selling houses far more than the job of surveying them. Consequently, back in 1979 he threw in the surveying towel and joined our team of Haslemere estate agents. He has spent the last 35 years practicing in the West Surrey towns of Guildford, Godalming, Grayshott and Haslemere. A member of the NAEA, he is married with a son and daughter whom have now left home, so lives quietly with his wife and cat. He has a love of music and visits music festivals including Weyfest and Guilfest. He is also trying to master the guitar and ukulele, and in the last few years he has started cycle touring around the UK.
Yet another Warren Powell- Richards Arsenal fan Paul gives us a little variation, as much to the dismay of his Guildford friends, he is a huge Bracknell Bees Ice hockey fan. Born in Albury and educated at George Abbot School in Guildford he moved to Cornwall to live with his Grandparents whilst attending college there. He has also spent time living and traveling in France and the USA. Other interests include being a huge Paul Weller and northern soul fan and getting some fresh air as a keen weekend walker. We are delighted to have him heading up our lettings department in our busy Haslemere office.
Steven Byers MARLA
Steven has spent most of his working life in sales. Due to a sports injury, his career focus shifted from sport to property and he has worked in the Surrey and Hampshire area since 2001. Steven is a country boy at heart having grown up in the Orkney Islands before heading off to University. Home life is now in Farnham with his wife Stephanie and two cats. More recently Steven has been studying again and has passed the Technical Award in Residential Letting and Property Management. In his spare time Steven enjoys cycling, exploring the countryside and is a FA qualified youth coach, where he manages a local under 16 football team.
Cherie has lived in Fernhurst for many years and absolutely loves living in the countryside with its opportunities for walking her Tibetan Terrier called Pandora. (Pandy for short). Highly active she is keen on interior design and DIY and has spent the last 5 years renovating her home. Cherie works Monday to Friday as a credit controller for a Gaming company but with her love of all things property related we at WPR are lucky enough to have her at weekend as a sales assistant. Holding down two jobs doesn’t leave much time for other pursuits but when possible keep fit and boot camp are priorities as is socialising with family and friends.
