Workington is an ancient and industrial town and is the main shopping centre for West Cumbria.  Once a major industrial town and port, Workington was famous for its iron and steel manufacture, but has since diversified to become the hub of West Cumbria.  With many retail outlets and things to do, Workington is an excellent base for exploring the beautiful coastline of Cumbria.

Whether you’re a first time buyer looking to get your foot on the ladder, searching for an investment property to buy or looking for flats or houses to rent, the team can help you find the perfect match.

Meet our dedicated team covering Workington:

Laura Weir – Senior Sales Valuer

01900 605544 ext 336


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!

Helen Mason – Sales Negotiator

01900 605544 ext 334


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.
