Your Davies Property Partners Story

I’ve been with Team Davies Property Partners for almost 8 years now, and in the industry for 12 years, working solely in lettings. I enjoy meeting all different types of people and find it interesting to see how their homes reflect their personality. I love what I do as no two days are the same and I love being part of a great team who work really well together. I fell into estate agency after university and was lucky enough to work in a very busy office, which is where I got a taste for it and as they say have not looked back since.

Tell us about you outside of work

I’m a big family man and have two beautiful daughters, Polly and Peggy. We enjoy long dog walks with our Miniature Schnauzer Ted, and just being outdoors in general. I was brought up in a very sporty family and I still train for and play rugby for Surrey-based club Old Emanuel, which was also my father’s club, and who I’ve represented for the past 18 years. Other sports I like to follow are football (Fulham FC), cricket and golf. I enjoy a good box set binge as well as exploring and travelling the world with my wife Katie.

Favourite bit of the house

It has to be the kitchen, it’s where everything happens and people are at their happiest. It’s also the dancefloor in my house. We love to entertain and feel there’s nothing better than sharing good food and drinks with your loved ones, all in the heart of the home.

Fun fact

I previously worked at a prep school coaching sport to 4–11-year-olds.
