Meet our knowledgeable team in Whitehaven:

Ella McGonigle – Sales Negotiator

Ella is very new to the working life, having left sixth form in the summer of 2018, qualifying with an A in Business Studies, B in Art and Design and a C in English Language. Ella appreciates that this, her first job, has given her opportunities to deal with challenges and she always aims to achieve good results and improve her skills in customer service.

Ella is from Workington and lives with her family. She loves art and specialises in portraiture, spending most of her spare time painting or drawing.

Ella absolutely loves Golden retrievers and would love to have one for a pet but, unfortunately, it’s unlikely she ever will as she is allergic to them.

Rebecca Todd – Property Portfolio Co-ordinator

Beckie works as part of the Lettings team at Whitehaven and is involved with many parts of looking after our portfolio of properties, including inspections, inventories and check-outs.

She joined us after redundancy following several years in the world of banking and says that property management just “caught her eye”.

Beckie weaves her work life around being mum to her son and enjoys taking the family travelling.  Her recent experiences include Iceland and Paris.  If not able to travel to far flung corners of the world she’s equally happy having a family day out closer to home.

Laura Watson – Assistant Branch Manager/Valuer

01946 693931 ext 204


Laura is responsible for managing the Whitehaven Lettings Team and for carrying Grisdales rental valuations to bring in new business.

Laura worked at a local solicitor for 4 years as an Office Junior and in credit control role, before becoming a Legal Secretary.  Laura then took a four year career break to bring up her young family.

She started working at Grisdales in 2007 as a Weekend Receptionist in the Cockermouth office before moving over to the Whitehaven Office in the same role.  She then moved over to lettings as a Lettings Assistant and worked her way up to be Lettings Manager when her manager at the time decided on a change of career.   Laura says that she thoroughly enjoy her job as Lettings Manager as she learns something new each day and every day is completely different. She has a strong team working with her which gives her the confidence to go out a sell Grisdales’ services to the best of her ability.

Laura’s family is the most important part of her life; she has 3 children, 2 boys and a girl and a long term partner who she says has the ‘patience of a saint’.  Added into the mix is their crazy Shihtzu pup Ted.

Lauren Lister – Executive Assistant

01946 693931 - Ext 206


I am originally from Maryport however I now live in Workington with my husband and 3 year old daughter, who is full of life.  Most of my time is dedicated to my family, however I enjoy the occasional music concert, socialising with friends and crafting. I’ve taught myself to knit (however far from the professional) and have refurbished several small pieces of furniture.

I returned to college to study Business Management and prior to this, I worked in the NHS as a receptionist, did 8 years in retail, briefly at Sellafield, have done the occasional mystery shop and cleaned lodges in the Lake District.  Now I have finished my studies, I hope to be able to throw myself into revamping the stockpile of old furniture I have accumulated over the past few years.
