For this week’s spotlight article, we’re introducing one of our newest recruits, Ash Vale’s Joseph Feast. Joseph has recently joined the Ash Vale team as Senior Client Manager.

“I’ve been at Mackenzie Smith for almost a month now and am really enjoying the dynamics of the company. Having been an estate agent for roughly six years, I’ve worked for both independent and corporate agents in the past. My previous agency was local, and whenever I dealt with Mackenzie Smith within a chain, they were always very friendly and professional, they have a great name and reputation in the area and I was keen to join a company that could help me take my career to the next level.

I have always had a passion for property and for great customer service, so I really enjoy the chance to help someone find their dream home and build a lasting customer relationship. I remember the first home I sold, it was to a young couple with a child on the way, buying a small two bedroom bungalow that needed a lot of work.

They were so happy when they moved in, it’s a hugely rewarding process. Three years later they had their third baby on the way, I went back to find a stunning four bedroom home, it was great to see how happy they had been there, they then wanted me to sell their much improved house to find their ultimate dream home in the area.  

My family are in a small village on the South Coast, which is lovely to visit, but I think Ash Vale and the local area is perfect for a whole range of buyers; commuters with the good connections to London and Guildford, those that love the outdoors due to the Ranges nearby, along with families with the wide selection of schools and good local amenities. 

Outside of agency life I enjoy watching and taking part in many sports, my competitive side always comes out!”
