She loves spending time with her family, especially at their caravan in Northumberland.   They love walking on the beaches with their Greyhound and building sandcastles.  Judith especially loves baking bread and always makes sure the family have good, healthy, home cooked food every day!

Susan Taylor – Senior Sales Negotiator

susantaylor@grisdales.co.uk

Susan carries out sales viewings, negotiates offers and follows the sale through to completion as well as overseeing the Sales Team in Cockermouth.

Susan previously worked in hotel management for 8 years and before that worked on a campsite whilst she was still in school. She decided on a change in direction as hotel hours weren’t very sociable and she wanted a change in direction…and she found herself with us!

Susan has quite a big family who keep her busy outside work.  She loves socialising with her friends who do “walk day Sunday” where they choose a different walk each week, normally ending up in a nice pub with a glass of red in her hand! Susan also loves getting glammed up for a night out, but at the same time loves nothing better than a duvet day with a good book and a log fire.
