The spotlight is on… John Munday

February 03, 2020

Our spotlight series allow us to introduce our team. Whilst you may have spoken to one, or many of us in the past, there are many people both in branch and behind the scenes that collaborate to make Mackenzie Smith the company we are today. This week we’re shining the spotlight on one of our Branch Managers for the first time, Ash Vale’s John Munday.

John is a highly experienced property professional, having worked within the industry across Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey over the last 25 years. John joined us over 3 years ago, bringing his wealth of knowledge and experience to our Ash Vale branch. It was the Mackenzie Smith name that first drew John to the role with us, “It’s great to work with such a great brand. Mackenzie Smith has a great image and reputation for delivering good customer service, which is known both within the industry and the public eye. I’m very happy to be working with such a fantastic group of people.” 

As a local resident, John knows the nearby towns and villages from both a professional perspective and in a personal capacity. “We’re very lucky to live and work where we do. The people are both genuine and down to earth, as an estate agent it’s a real privilege to not only meet, but help a wide selection of the general public, who are always so friendly. The local community is really strong and we’re honoured to be a part of it, whilst the surrounding countryside, good commute and community assets sell the area itself.”

John knew from an early stage in life that he wanted to work with property and sales, so it’s not entirely surprising that he continues in this industry with 25 years behind him. 

Today, he heads up a successful team over at Ash Vale, working with sales and new homes, utilising his extensive management experience to maximise the potential for his clients by delivering good customer service and expert knowledge.

Over the years, John has certainly been involved in some interesting sales. As an avid Chelsea supporter, there are two particular transactions that stand out, having sold two Chelsea players houses; Nigel Spackman and David Speedie. John has also been involved in the filming of Location, Location, Location when Phil visited Ash Vale to help their buyers find a house. When it comes to his day to day activities here at Mackenzie Smith, and as an agent, John’s favourite aspect of the job is still meeting new clients, “When I take on a house for sale, it’s a real honour to help advise the homeowners as to the next steps. I personally enjoy advising Vendors for their customised market strategy on how we will sell their home.”

A family man, when John isn’t supporting Chelsea or selling houses, he spends all the time he can with his family and children.

If you’d like to speak to John and our team at Ash Vale about selling your house, or would like any information regarding our services, please contact the Ash Vale branch on (01252) 353030 or e-mail
