New Associate Partner in Forest Row
We would like to introduce you to one of our favourite Associate Partners (Howard Cundey’s term for Branch Manager) Ron Gibson, he comes to Forest Row from our Tunbridge Wells office.
Ron has been in estate agency for 15 years and loves it; “I used to be stuck behind a desk in The City as a trader, as an estate agent everyday is different and presents different challenges. Corny as it might sound I love playing a part in finding people a new home. There is nothing better than handing them the keys on the day of completion.”
He has lived in Nutley for 12 years and speaks about The Ashdown Forest with so much affection and enthusiasm it is contagious. He grew up listening to stories of Winnie the Pooh and The Hundred Acre Wood and has been seen playing Pooh Sticks.
Good or bad he is an avid Brighton supporter and has a season ticket, an occasional golfer and a “geocasher,” Geocashing is described as the world’s largest treasure hunt!
He remembers his first day as a junior sales negotiator very clearly, not necessarily for good reasons but for reasons that members of his first branch still talk about today. He was conducting his first viewing and had successfully shown the house and was in the garden, he was talking so intently to the buyers whilst walking backwards down the garden that he failed to notice the beautiful pond until he was in it! Fully submersed and fully clothed. He arrived back to the office sodden and covered in pond weeds!
Things could only get better from then and they did. He is now a very successful and popular manager with experience and passion for East Sussex. He is so excited to be working in Forest Row he has always loved the diversity of the village and the beauty of the forest. He says “I have only been here a few weeks and I love it, the people are so friendly and I am bowled over at the courtesy people have for one another here! I am so looking forward to being part of such an amazing community”
We are really proud of Ron, he is so good with people and already the Forest Row office of Howard Cundey feels like his family, it is such a great place to do business or just visit.
