Spread across the city in our different Hove, Brighton and Portslade branches our Sawyer & Co. team has grown to over 30 people, so we thought it was about time to introduce ourselves.
So without further ado, here’s director Chris Sawyer to tell you a little about Portslade’s very own Bob Beaken…
“Bob is the Senior Negotiator at our market leading office in Portslade and we feel very fortunate to have him within our organisation. Not only is he a real asset, he’s a real character too.
Whenever I'm out and about with Bob in Brighton and Hove I can pretty much guarantee one thing; he will meet someone who knows him. Apart from spells in the US and Australia, Bob has lived in the city pretty all his life and whether it's at a football match, in the pub or walking down the street, someone will say hello to him.
He was either at school with them, played football, tennis, cycled, surfed, or actually probably played any kind of sport with them, he's still sport mad. What's more though, from the way people always talk about him it's clear he is very warmly regarded. They smile at the mention of his name and they all say they know him.
The other thing that's guaranteed if you spend time with Bob is that he has some very entertaining stories. He’s a natural raconteur and I've always loved his ability to tell us a few tales.
In what is now a very long career Bob is arguably our most over qualified member of the team. He's had some very high flying positions in the sports industry and also ran his own estate agency in the 90's and early noughties.
I first met Bob playing football and his very sharp wit made it impossible not to instantly like him. We met by chance a few years later in a petrol station just after he left his role at Albion in the Community and he was ready for a new challenge. There and then I persuaded him that this should be with us, and he started the following week. Right time, right place.
To be honest it wasn't that difficult. Bob loves property and he loves people, so what better job for him? He also fits in perfectly with the Sawyer & Co way.
Thanks for your contribution in maintaining our award-winning service Bob." Chris Sawyer.
