Harrington Brown was established as an independent Estate Agency in 2002 by Margaret Burton who had over 10yrs of experience working for corporate agents. With new development planned in Shotley Bridge she decided it was the right time to take the plunge and open her own agency and it proved to be a good decision!
In 2011 Jennifer joined the small team bringing with her a successful background in Sales & Marketing and a passion for property having renovated her first property at the age of 23. “When I put my first property on the market I hoped it would sell within 3 months but It sold in 5 days when it went to sealed bids, “I still remember getting the call at work that Friday afternoon – you would have thought I’d won the lottery!!” Jennifer said that’s when she caught the property bug!
Jumping forward a decade, Jennifer had left Harrington Brown to start a family (2 daughters), renovated and rented out a local property, bought and renovated her forever home with husband Lee, and in between completed two Diplomas, Soft Furnishing and Interior Design, as well as a part time course in Upholstery.
After an impromptu conversation with Margaret about retirement and future plans, Jennifer and her husband thought it was the perfect timing to get back into the business. “I had always planned to go back to work doing something for myself once both girls were at school, but when the opportunity came up I thought it’s now or never, and thankfully the staff were more than happy to stay with me, so made the decision even easier!
With a background in Sales & Marketing and Customer Care, Jennifers aim is to offer the very highest level of service in the Sales & Letting market and her focus is on customer experience and satisfaction. Jennifer has continued to study and complete her Level 3 Diploma in Estate Agency and attended refresher training in compliance to keep up to date with all the current legislation.
