Clare Walker – Branch Manager

01900 605544 ext 331

clarewalker@grisdales.co.uk

Clare’s primary role is to ensure the smooth running of the Workington Office in both the Lettings and Sales sections.

She has worked for Grisdales for six and a half years, starting as a Lettings Negotiator and progressing to Lettings Manager in 2010. Prior to this she worked for HMRC and in the past has worked as a Mortgage Advisor in both a building society and an estate agent. Clare has a HND in Business Studies and has passed the NFOPP level 3 award in Residential Letting and Property Management.

Clare lives in Workington with her husband and they have a dog and two cats. She is a motor sport fan and has named her cats after her favourite Moto GP rider – which causes her husband much embarrassment at the vets! Clare has recently found a new hobby/obsession in running, which she does with a running club in Cockermouth.

Laura Weir – Senior Sales Valuer

01900 605544 ext 336

lauraweir@grisdales.co.uk

Laura is responsible for visiting new properties to give vendors advice on marketing their homes. She also places new homes on the market; including taking photographs and measurements and drafting brochures.  She is responsible for reviewing property marketing progress and securing price reductions where appropriate. What’s more; she draws up probate and landlord valuation reports, is occasional cover for the front office negotiating team and she also attends the sales steering committee meetings.

Laura has been with Grisdales for several years in many roles and has enjoyed all she has done. She started her career in banking, but was also a dental receptionist for ten years – so her career history is varied! She has a Level 3 ILM (Institute of Learning and Management) in Management and is a people person – dealing with people is what she does best!

Laura has lived in Workington for almost five years, she has two grown up children and two grandsons, all whom she enjoys spending time with! For Laura, nothing beats running around Whinlatter Forest with small children (releasing your inner child!). She also loves socialising, restaurants, cooking, city breaks at the weekend and she loves holidays (the hotter and sunnier the better!) Laura also loves visiting the South of England where the rest of her family live. Since she was 20, she has had approximately 30 different homes, so we think she is well qualified for her job!

Gill James – Property Portfolio Manager

01900 829977 ext 310

gillianjames@grisdales.co.uk

Gill is part of the lettings team at Workington.  She is involved in tenancies from start to finish, dealing with inventories and utility companies before the tenancy starts.  She is also responsible for property inspections and any maintenance; from repairs and refurbishment to arranging safety checks. Gill is also responsible for checkouts when a tenancy ends.

Gill is a jack of all trades and can turn her hand to anything! She studied languages at University and put this to good use during five years she spent in Germany.  She has since worked in the automotive industry, as a support worker for clients with mental health issues and now the estate agency – to mention a few!

Gill lives in Workington with her partner Carl and daughter Lily, they have 2 cats Henry and Max. She has travelled the world with her work but has ended up back where she started! A highlight being that she has been lucky enough to see the Bolshoi Ballet in the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow! Gill has a heart condition, which has completely changed her way of life. Before she became ill, she cycled every day, played competitive netball for a local team and was so involved in yoga that she was training to become an instructor. She often struggles with the restrictions that are now imposed on her but tries to lead as normal a life as possible.

jodieparker@grisdales.co.uk

I have been in retail for over 10 years working my way up from Sales Assistant to Management.  Joining Grisdales has given me the opportunity to pursue a career change and a new challenge.

I live locally just on the outskirts of Workington with my young daughter.  In my spare time I love being able to pursue my hobby of photography, and living so close to the lakes and coast is a great canvas for this.

Helen’s role in the business includes arranging and carrying out viewings, negotiating and agreeing sales, sales progression with solicitors and communicating between vendors and purchasers.

She has worked at Grisdales for 14 months as a Sales Negotiator; which was a complete change of career for Helen, who previously had been a Police Officer with Cumbria Constabulary for 11 years! She has tried many different avenues and has picked up various qualifications along the way, including a BTEC Diploma in Tourism, a NVQ 2 in Business Administration and an NVQ in Beauty Therapy – to name a few!

Helen lives in Seaton, Workington, with her partner, their three children and their much-loved family dog. With the little time they have between work and home life, they enjoy walking and trips on their family’s boat. Helen and her partner try to get away for the odd night, every now and then, and really enjoy splashing out on a relaxing break in some of the Lake Districts lovely hotels.
