Our previous blog post looked at what an average day at abbotFox outside the office involved and it proved to be very popular and so this time we thought we would share with you what a typical working day is like inside our office. First off there is the abbotFox team composed of sales, lettings, bespoke, after sales, marketing and admin who all work together in our single, Norwich based office. The office itself is always very busy as the team works until seven in the evening as well as over the weekend in order to accommodate the busy schedule of our clients. 

The city of Norwich is becoming an increasingly popular place to live and this has been reflected in the growing number of house buyers from outside the area looking to purchase a property here. This increase in interest from outside buyers is not surprising because although Norwich may not be the biggest city in the UK it has a lot to offer including a lively town centre rich in history, a choice of beautiful beaches only an hours drive away and strong transport links with London. The city is also one of the safest in the UK with significantly lower house prices compared to London and the Telegraph recently included ...

Due to expansion we are currently seeking weekend staff. Main responsibilities include supporting both the sales and lettings teams, greeting visitors as they enter the office, answering telephone calls and registering applicants. First impressions are vital in this role, so we are looking for a well presented, confident individual with excellent communication skills. Previous experience would be advantageous however not essential. If you hold an interest in property and customer service we would love to hear from you.

Working in an estate agents was something I always wanted to do because I enjoy working with different people and challenging myself in a business. My career in estate agency began in 2007 where I worked as a Junior Lettings Negotiator for my family owned independent estate agents in Coltishall. After two years I was promoted to Lettings Manager and Partner where I helped to build and shape the future of the business. Three years later I sold my shares because I wanted to face a new challenge and I moved on to work as the Director for a well known estate agents in Norfolk.

I started my career in estate agency as a Trainee Negotiator in Teddington where I worked for 6 years. For me it was a fantastic opportunity because I have always been interested in property, particularly unique homes with historic architecture. Having built up my experience in estate agency I moved back to Norfolk where I worked for two different well known Country House agencies for over 10 years. Then, in May of 2014, I was approached by abbotFox who were looking to launch a Bespoke department at their fast expanding central Norwich office.
