Launceston is the ancient capital of Cornwall. Attractions include the English Heritage Norman Castle and steam railway, narrow streets and plenty of Georgian and Victorian architecture. Excellent access can be gained to the A30 dual carriageway and both Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor. The town is 17 miles from the coastal resort and rugged cliff tops of Bude. Our town square is a conservation area and has a pedestrian friendly shopping area with cobbled streets.  The Church of St Mary Magdalene in the town centre is one of the most heavily engraved in the country.

Typical out of town buyers come from the West Midlands and South East seeking retirement/slower pace of life which is what our county epitomises.  We have a hard working Launceston in Bloom committee passionate about making the town look attractive throughout all seasons and the Town Council do an excellent job of maintenance and grass cutting.  In 2011 HRH the Duchess of Cornwall opened a new refurbished Town Hall.

Typical properties in the town include Victorian semis and modern edge of town developments.  We also have a growing Fine and Country department.

I started in estate agency in 1998 and joined the Webbers team in 2002, rapidly progressing up to Branch manager in 2005.

I have an extensive knowledge of estate agency legislation. Successes include leading my team to Webbers office of the year in 2010 and 2014, along with the coveted sales achievement award in 2011, 2013 and 2014. My spare time is made up of playing snooker, fishing, walking and looking after my young daughter.

I have lived very happily in Launceston for many years and love living in Cornwall. It suits my lifestyle with its beautiful beaches, rivers and moorland together with quaint villages and interesting and different town centres.

Having considerable experience in estate agency, I went on to work for several notable regional and national house builders. More recently I have worked for Origin Housing, formerly St Pancras Housing. I then used my skills and experience in the West Indies, selling real estate; it was a tough job but someone had to do it!
