Ok, so we're an odd-looking bunch. But we're friendly - and our mother's love us!
Have a nosey around and say hello to some of the assorted faces that make up Team Property Ladder…

james

James Brooks - Director

I’ve been an estate agent in the area for nearly 20 years, giving me a thorough understanding of marketing and selling property locally and experience of just about every situation imaginable! What drives me is building the best business we can, which means providing a first class service to all customers.

It’s my job to conduct most of the valuations, so I look forward to meeting you soon!

Edward Brooks - Director

Working with my brother has been a dream come true for me, the team we have created here are like an extended family all trying to give our customers the best experience of the moving process we can. I am based at our Spixworth office and get involved in all aspects of customer service including running the aftersales team which means troubleshooting any problems before they arise and seeing the smiling faces of our clients as they pick up the keys to their new home!

Chris Brooks - Director

Having worked as an estate agent, at management level, through three decades, before my career path changed, I bring a reassuring level of experience, of the local property market.

My role, at Property Ladder is rather varied. From putting up the for sale boards to meeting with property developers, I do the lot! So if you are selling with us, chances are, it’ll be me changing your board to “sold”, nice and soon!

Gwen Brooks - Sales Admin

You’ll find me in Property Ladder a couple of times per week. I have a keen eye for detail, so I provide support to our administration department. More importantly I keep this lot on their toes, ensuring there is no squabbling and that everyone behaves themselves!

I am a fully qualified fitness instructor & nutritionist and I teach Fitness Pilates/Nova at Virgin Active and in the community.

POPE

Claire Pope - Sales Admin

I’ve been at Property Ladder now for 6 years. I look after the administration of the office whilst also dealing with buyers and sellers, face to face in the office. I have worked in property in both the U.K and Australia, so have a truly unique perspective of the property market.

If you are selling with us, the chances are I will by typing your particulars and ensuring your property is swiftly marketed, in all the right places!

tom

Tom Clayton - Sales Manager

I joined the team in 2015 following a successful four years with the U.K’s largest estate agency chain.

As a senior negotiator, I am often the first point of contact to any new enquiries from buyers and sellers.

I make it my personal mission to negotiate the best possible price on behalf of our clients and to find a buyer that not only suits their properties but their onward plans too.

GROVES - Copy

Andy Groves - Mortgage Consultant

I run my own independent mortgage advice business, Ardent Financial Planning and it is based at the Property Ladder offices.

I love what I do and I particularly love helping buyers and sellers complete their moves, with as little stress as possible.

Unlike many mortgage brokers, I do not charge advice fees, so clients of mine are often saving £300 or more before we even look at mortgages!

Claire Baker - After Sales Coordinator

I have been an estate agent in Norwich and Norfolk for over a decade. I have worked in all areas of the industry from valuing property, selling prestige homes and dealing with after sales.

I joined property ladder in 2015, to coincide with the opening of the Spixworth office. I specialize in properties in the NR12 & NR13 postcodes, so if you are thinking of selling, please call me!

Brooke Kelly - Senior Negotiator

I started my estate agent career in early 2015, with a local independent company. I was really pleased to be head hunted by Property Ladder, to work in the Spixworth office, later in the same year.

I try to always listen to my customer’s priorities and deliver a service that works for them. Being an independent firm, means our approach can be far more tailored than national firms of estate agents.

Lisa Brooks - Negotiator

Wife of our MD James, Lisa is an excellent estate agent with over 10 year experience in the Norwich property market, having worked for top corporate and independent agencies.

A founding staff member at propertyladder, Lisa took a career break to raise a family but her passion for property still burned strong so we were delighted when she chose to return to our Spixworth office.

Lisa is a local girl and was schooled in Spixworth where her parents still live giving her great insight into the local area.
