Our team members are your future neighbours; we live and love where we work, and we know our market inside and out. We may already know the perfect family who would be interested in your home; we might see that it fits the bill for a pool of overseas buyers, or we might immediately think of a first-time buyer registered with one of our other offices. This is the kind of know-how that only comes with experience. We build lifelong relationships with our client by being personable, well informed, transparent and dependable.

We invest in our people, and we are proud that our property valuers have worked with Conran for more than 10 years, bucking the trend for an industry known for high staff turnover. We are all trained via the Guild of Property Professionals associate program in order to ensure that we are kept up to date with latest industry legislation. We have gained our client communication skills under the Guild Training scheme; we are ‘Trading Standards Approved,’ and that means safety and peace of mind for our clients.

The best training, the highest standards and a local team you can trust.

  • Simon Hughes

    Managing Director

    Having co-founded the group back in 1999, I ensure the smooth running in all aspects of the business from Sales & Lettings to Land & New Homes and our fee-free Independent Mortgage Advice offering too.

    I am on the National Advisory Council for The Guild of Property Professionals (to which we are the chosen local member) where I help to make decisions for the network – who have 825 offices across the United Kingdom.

    I love being hands-on with the business on a day-to-day basis and am particularly passionate about Land and New Homes. I am fully accountable for all new home developments and ensuring the relationship between agent and developer is strong via first-class communication and, of course, success.

    I am also qualified as an Independent Mortgage Adviser and still, to this day, advise customer specifically regarding equity release solutions.

    For downtime, apart from chasing around after my three children, I play hockey, golf (am fortunate enough to be a  member of the oldest golf club in England, which is right on our doorstep; being Royal Blackheath), and am big into skiing.

  • Oliver Powell

    Area Director

    I have worked in the property business since the early ’90s and am a founding owner of Conran. I took a sabbatical in 2009 and set up a cricket coaching academy. I returned in 2016 to find a company and industry which looked and felt very different; it was a challenge to catch up! My days are mainly taken up with the pursuit of delivering world-class marketing and perfecting our customer’s journey. I am fortunate to be in a job I love and work with a bunch of exceptional people.

    Away from the office, I’m proud to be a committed family man; my wife, kids (and Ernie Dog) are everything to me! I do get to sneak out now and then and thoroughly enjoy a round of golf and socialising with friends. I am a sports fanatic; I love playing golf, and hitting the Austrian slopes strapped to skis or a board!.

  • Anne Angus

    Lettings Manager

    I have worked at Conran in the lettings management department since October 2010. My previous experience in banking, accounts and within a small charity have all been varied and allow me the skillset I now use on a regular basis.

    When my son was old enough to fend for himself, I wanted to undertake a new exciting challenge so decided to come and work for Conran Estates to pursue a more fulfilling career.

    I passed my Lettings Management exams within 6 months of starting with the company – not bad for a newbie to Lettings Management!

    I thoroughly enjoy continual professional development and so can be found on regular industry training courses held by ARLA. It is amazing how much knowledge is needed with the job and the amount of regular changes in our industry legislation!

  • Guy Marsh

    Branch Manager/ Partner at Conran Brockley

    I have been valuing homes in South East London since the late 1990s, experiencing many different markets and leave a long list of highly satisfied clients behind me.

    My background in Corporate Banking has provided me with my attention to detail, the understanding of both what a client wants, how to achieve this and how different markets are driven by emotions, opportunities and results.

    My aim will be to achieve you the best price, from the best buyer in the shortest possible time. I believe it will be a combination of all three, to be directed by you.

    I aim to be direct and am very much a fan of straight talking.

    I have incredibly fond memories of growing up behind the wonderful Chiesmans in Lewisham many moons ago and have lived in South East London all my life.

    I am a proud father of a football mad son so much of my spare time is following him to football and futsal matches and the occasional game myself.

  • Michael John

    Branch Manager/ Partner at Conran Charlton

    I am very passionate about estate agency and anything property-related! I am proud to both work and live in Charlton, and this personal and insider knowledge of the area really helps in achieving the best prices for my clients.

    My experience in estate agency spans over twenty-five years, and I have enjoyed being the Branch Partner at the Charlton Office since 2006, and we remain the LEADING agent for this area!

    I tend to occupy my spare time immersed in property refurbishment and restoration, or thinking about architecture, interior design. I also enjoy reading widely, cycling and gardening.

    I have a professional but warm approach, always straightforward, honest, highly competent and obsessed when it comes to achieving success for you. I look forward to being entrusted with your property and your move.

  • Rob Iommazzo

    Branch Manager/ Partner at Conran Lee

    My goal in life is to be the best I can be and to try 100% in whatever I set my mind to.

    I enjoy working closely with my customers, helping them sell or let their home, achieving the best possible price and ensuring the whole process is as smooth and as stress-free as possible.

    Since joining Conran’s in 2003, I have worked tirelessly to build great relationships with my customers. I thoroughly enjoy working for an independent agency, and I feel fortunate to have found my true passion in life.

    I have fond memories of growing up in Catford and attending St Joseph Academy secondary school in Blackheath.

    I’m a proud father of a nine-year old daughter who keeps me on my toes and is a bundle of joy to be around!

  • Tamer Alcici

    Branch Manager / Partner at Conran Greenwich

    I have a passion for people, chatting and being inquisitive.

    In my first role as a lettings agent, I worked with some genuinely talented people and loved learning about this industry. By 2004 I realized I wanted to work in Greenwich with all the grand old houses and friendly clientele the area seemed to offer. I sat down with Oliver for a friendly chat, and I knew Conran was the only place for me, the company is so well run, and the team are so down to earth.

    Many of my clients have morphed into lifelong friends, and if they were to describe me, I hope they would say I love what I do and am driven to get the right results (that’s when they are polite of course!).

    I like to keep fit, play football and the occasional run. I have a passion for traveling to new places and seeing as much of the world as possible. My favourite spot is New York, where’s yours?

  • Doug Norris

    Senior Sales Consultant at Conran Greenwich

    My connection to estate agency dates back to the 1960’s. I fondly remember my father working for a company with offices in South East London. I suppose I inherited his genes as I thoroughly enjoy the business and all things property.
    I was born and bred locally, so Greenwich is close to my heart. The area has changed dramatically and the variety this brings gives great enjoyment to me in my role, as you never face the same day twice. I should know as have worked in Greenwich for 28 years now!
    I am very proud of the relationships I build with my clients who come back to me time and time again, looking for their next move and staying loyal to me, I consider this the greatest of compliments.
    Outside of work I am a passionate supporter of Charlton Athletic FC. I also keep a keen eye on the developments at my old school Colfe’s, and especially how they are getting along on the sports fields

  • Hayden Deol

    Manager at Conran Greenwich

    I was born and raised in beautiful Royal Greenwich and I feel thoroughly privileged to be able to ply my trade as a property professional in this historic borough.

    I come from a family steeped in business connected to property, and hence my heart was always set on pursuing a property related career. I thoroughly enjoy my role with Conran and I pride myself on the feedback I receive from my satisfied clients.

    I hold a strong belief that you should pursue those things in life that you have passion for and in doing so it allows you to both do fantastic things in your career and also have a ball in the process.

    My favourite pastime is taking my dog for a stroll in the woods, across the heath or along Old Father Thames!

  • Dan Sharpe

    Assistant Manager at Conran Brockley

    It is clear to see why its’ residents fall in love with Brockley; the area and the community are fantastic and thriving and I am proud to be a part of this unique area.

    The day to day life of estate agency is so incredibly varied. Helping people find their dream home is something I feel passionately about and I thoroughly enjoy every moment! I aim to give an exceptional service to all of those who I have the pleasure of dealing with for both sales and lettings.

    I am proud of my hardworking and friendly approach to not only life, but my career as an estate agent. I strive to be the best I can be and to exceed expectations as often as possible. This allows me to succeed and stay positive. If you are going to do something, do it properly (as my Nan used to say!). The reviews I have received so far in my career for Conran are something I am rightly proud of and I will continue to go the extra mile for my customers.

  • Abbie Kendall

    Senior Negotiator at Conran Charlton

    I am a determined girl who likes a challenge. Having been in retail for 3 years, which has developed my strong customer approach, I felt ready to progress to the next level and am proud to be achieving results at Conran. I enjoy making people laugh, smile and feel good about themselves and working at Conran has allowed me to do just that. I am privileged to work for an amazing team, they have made me feel like I have been here forever.

    I have lived in the area all my life and owe a debt to my wonderful family, some of whom work in property. As they say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!

  • Felix North

    Senior Negotiator at Conran Brockley

    I’m a South Londoner born and bred, living in both Hither Green and Peckham. Being fortunate enough to grow up in this culturally rich and diverse environment gives me a unique insight into the local area. 

     I’ve worked in hospitality for 10 years and have enjoyed transferring the similar skills to estate agency; being respectful, helpful and facilitating the needs of others. 

     When I’m not at work I can be found bouldering, eating at any of the amazing restaurants or pop-ups in the area or in a pub pleading for Manchester United to win (!) 

    I have a quirky personality with a great sense of humour (I like to think!). I wear my heart on my sleeve and will always tell people like it is.  

  • Aidan La Croix

    Senior Negotiator at Conran Charlton

    I feel passionate about the property industry, and the variety of working with different customers on a daily basis fires this. 

     I have always had a competitive side to my nature which fuels my sporting ambitions on the football and cricket pitch. At work, I funnel this nature to helping my customers find their dream home!  

    Personal happiness tends to be something I aim for; being content at the workplace makes everything so much easier. I am lucky to work for Conran, where satisfaction is one of our core beliefs.  

    I like to be healthy (coupled with having a good appearance!), so I go to the gym regularly. However, the healthy lifestyle invariably gets interrupted by friends inviting me to the pub! 

  • Evie Stevens

    Senior Negotiator at Conran Greenwich

    Working at Conran has been super exciting with many different experiences and challenges. I feel that the future is bright with Conran as they are the leading agent in the area and their focus on customer service is incredible. It is so detailed and forward thinking. My main priority is making sure that our clients have the smoothest, carefree experience and I look to pre-empt their needs.

    I was surprised how big a jump it has been from working in Hollister to Conran, but my team really believe in me which has helped me to transfer many skills from my previous job.

    I love to travel and am lucky enough to have spent 3 months in Asia exploring their unique cultures. This has enhanced my outlook and developed life skills that will benefit me both today and in the future.

  • Will Roden

    Senior Negotiator at Conran Charlton

    Variety is the spice of life, and that is a mantra that the property industry lives by. Meeting new people, finding hidden gems and exploring exciting new places while being in the beating heart of a cultural and diverse melting pot is the reason I love what I do. No day is the same.

    I remember the excitement I felt when I bought my first home, stepping into this big empty space with our ‘essentials’ piled up in the middle of the floor and thinking “what now?” Where we live, where our home is, is where life happens. It’s the first Christmas, the dinner parties, the hours spent making a den on a sofa after an over-indulgent Saturday night. Those moments are the most precious. It truly is an honour to be part of making those memories happen. Whether a first-time buyer looking for that quirky little one bed or a family wanting that highly desirable bit of green outside, let’s work together and get that perfect place for you!

  • Jodie ter Brake

    Senior Negotiator at Conran Charlton

    I was born and raised in the East End of London – surrounded by a mix of Victorian terraces, waterside cottages, and council pre-fabs – alongside some of the fabulous newer developments of recent years. I’ve always been aware of my surroundings and the wonderful, diverse property since first seeing the construction plans for Canary Wharf with Olympia & York way back in the ’80s. I find genuine joy in working with individuals exploring their wish lists and finding their dream home!

    I have experienced living in several different countries, working in various industries – from corporate finance to fashion. I draw on my experiences daily to truly understand what you want and how I might help you find what you are looking for, whether that’s a step onto the property ladder or some friendly advice for local living with those unfamiliar with London. I’ve been an ex-pat several times, and it can be so daunting!

    My business approach is focused and clear, and I always work to achieve the best solution for you.

    “Choose kind” is my motto, but don’t mistake me for being too soft – I’m not shy of taking a problem by the horns! As a mother of three, with a busy husband and household, I love to spend time with my family & friends whenever I can.

    I look forward to meeting you.

  • Joelle Joncas

    Negotiator at Conran Lee

    I am very grateful for my career at Conran. I am originally from Canada and am thrilled to be in South East London. The resilience I have shown moving countries and starting a new life is something that I aim to deliver for all of my customers.

    I consider myself to be a driven and caring person; once I’ve established a goal for myself, I’m not satisfied until I have achieved it completely. I’ve always had a fondness for the property industry and I have many aspirations in this field.

    I know that my passions for real estate and interior design carry over to how I conduct myself in the office.

    Outside of work, I am very interested in dance and spending time with people I care about. I was a competitive dancer for 12 years and also taught dance for several years after that. You can often find me relaxing with a good book or enjoying anything creative.

  • Chloe Mutimer

    Negotiator at Conran Greenwich

    After completing a degree in forensics, you might not think that a career in the property industry was a natural first step! However, during my studies, I learned a lot about communication, working in teams and helping people. Coupled with the experience I gained working in retail, whilst studying, where I learned a lot about delivering great customer service, opened my horizons to working in the estate agency sector.

    Conran, being 100% customer focused (we do spend a lot of time training and focusing on how we can be the market-leading agent for delivering 1st class customer service), is the perfect fit!

    I am proud to be a part of the Greenwich team – we are such a hardworking and talented team (!). My teammates have over 30 years working for Conran in Greenwich, and they always encourage me to develop and grow as a person, amazing eh?

    In my spare time, I love to keep fit but also to explore new bars and restaurants with friends (everyone has to have a vice, right?).

  • Mickaela Muir

    Negotiator at Conran Lee

    New experiences and pushing my comfort zone happens every day at Conran, which I love! I have the pleasure of working with the most hard-working, motivated and incredible people. Conran is like a big family, and the care taken for customers and staff members alike are second to none.

    I love the real estate world and believe that a home is one of the essential fundamentals in life. It is not just about a secure place to lay your head, but somewhere dreams are born, achievements celebrated, and memories made. Therefore, I thrive on providing every customer with the utmost quality in service and helping them on their journey of finding their forever dream home.

    I am originally from Ireland, where I made the giant leap to move to South East London to enjoy all the city offers. I am a very bubbly, friendly and chatty person who can literally talk for Cork, Ireland, or even the whole of Europe! I will never say no to a pint of Guinness (as stereotypical as that is!), and I enjoy travelling and making the most of what life has to offer.

    I look forward to meeting you and to finding out all about you!

  • Kelly Powell

    Marketing Manager

    I have worked for various companies across a range of industries such as banking, the charitable sector, and estate agency but always in an administrative capacity. My time spent as an Event Manager taught me how to prioritise, time manage and stay calm! These are useful transferable skills to my role in the Estate Agency world as the role is extremely varied with never a dull moment. I have worked at Conran since October 2018 and enjoy working with such an amazing team who are all committed, driven and of course good fun.

    Outside of work I spend time with my incredible family, including Ernie the family dog and I love to keep fit, keep up to date with fashion, cook, and if I get a chance, relax in front of the TV!

  • Alfie Foster

    Marketing Executive at Conran Greenwich

    Working with Conran has opened many doors for me, and has introduced me to people who are so positive and inspiring to be around. The focus on customer service is world-class, and I’m proud to be a part of it.

    I love meeting new people and with Conran every day is different! I love bringing what I can to this company, I’ve been lucky enough to learn from the best. I feel thoroughly privileged to work with Rommel, our full-time graphic designer; it’s so exciting to be able to request some artwork from him and to see the world-class designs hit my inbox a few hours later!

    In my spare time, I love to read and write and draw a lot of inspiration from comics and TV shows (I admit, I’m a bit of a geek!) but you can still find me in the pub every so often, or working those empty calories off by swimming & diving on weekends.

     

     

  • Ellie Rowsell

    Apprentice Marketing Executive

    Starting full-time work at Conran is such an exciting challenge. Working alongside the experienced Admin team gives me the confidence to build my world-class service with colleagues I can trust.

    In my spare time, I enjoy going out with my friends to different restaurants and trying new food. I also love watching my favourite tv shows – such as Selling Sunsets!

  • Debbie Lewis

    Letting Specialist

    I joined Conran’s in 2015 in the Lettings Department having been asked to cover a colleague on her year’s maternity leave and I’m still here!

    We have a great team spirit in the department and help each at all times in an extremely busy but rewarding atmosphere. I love it when we have happy tenants and landlords as that makes us all enjoy what we do that bit more.

    I am a mother of 3 teenage girls, living in New Eltham and, in what little spare time my beautiful daughters allow me (!), I like to socialise, gym and swim.

  • Georgina Hobbs

    Letting Specialist

    I joined Conran back in 2011 as a novice, seven years on I still seem to be learning as the government role out new legislation on what seems like a monthly basis!! It is fair to say that this job keeps us on our feet!

    I have lived locally in Bexleyheath for the past 26 years and enjoy socialising, gym and cooking.

  • Jeff Lever

    Senior Mortgage Specialist

    I have been connecting people with their perfect mortgage since 1992 and am proud to have been working alongside the expert team at Conran since 2000.

    Sourcing the ideal mortgage tends to be very complex (even those cases which seem to be straightforward at outset often have twists and turns!). The day-to-day challenge of the job and the satisfaction of getting my customers the best rates from the best lenders is what I love about what I do. The buzz of taking the stress off this part of the house buying transaction provides pure job satisfaction. I am sure this is why over 90% of my new customers are referrals from my existing customers!

    I can testify to this via the reviews I receive which are on www.conranmortgages.co.uk.

    My personal interests are cooking, gardening and Boxing – a strange mix eh?. Oh, and finance is of course a personal interest of mine – I just can’t help it!!

  • Val Lever

    Mortgage Paraplanner

    I am a Paraplanner to the Conran Mortgage Consultants, one of which also happens to be Jeff, my husband – it really is a family affair! In fact, it could be said that I waited 15 years for an opening at Conran Mortgages and haven’t looked back since!

    I have a wealth of experience. I am a qualified financial adviser, which gives me an excellent understanding of the complete process. As a Paraplanner, I can focus on the bit I love best – making things happen!

    I also have an Estate Agency background as a sales progressor and experience in specialist housing, so I genuinely have an expert understanding of the home buying process.

    My role is to ensure our customers received an incredible journey from start to finish. I am a dab hand at problem-solving, which is essential in this job; we all know there are many pitfalls in the home buying and mortgage world!

    If the customers of Conran Mortgages described me in one word, it would be ‘efficient’, which makes me proud.

    Keen interests? I like to cook alongside Jeff, and you can’t beat a sunny day spent in the garden oh and enjoy decorating too. I suppose you could say I am houseproud!

    Is it sad to say that financial affairs are also a keen interest of mine? If it is, let’s keep it between us!
