The Livingroom team has been instrumental in single-handedly improving the quality of service experienced by clients of Guernsey estate agents since inception in 2006.
Simon is the founding partner of Livingroom Estate Agents, Livinglife and the Guernsey Property Guide publications. A Guernsey boy through and through Simon returned to the island following a successful career in London as an advertising creative and time spent travelling the world. While working for a local estate agency Simon realised there was a way to integrate his creative skills with his passion for property. He knew that people buying and selling their homes wanted more from their estate agent. With an extensive knowledge of property, photography and creative brand design, Simon has always been the driving force in Livingroom's unique and cutting edge brand positioning and development.
Livingroom has taken another leap forward - taking client service to a whole new level and once more reinventing how estate agents work. Embracing new technology and always focussing on each client's specific needs, Livingroom offers vendors and purchasers a unique experience. The ever-evolving approach positions Livingroom at the forefront of the industry.
"Our principles at Livingroom apply to all. Whether selling or buying a £150k studio or a £25m mansion - everyone should feel they are the focus of our work and we are determined to make sure our clients stay with Livingroom because of the innovative quality of service they receive."
Livingroom is passionate about giving back to the local
community and has made this a pillar of its business.
Simon is also a founding member of the Guernsey charity YPG (Young People Guernsey). Young People Guernsey (YPG) is a Guernsey charity that identifies and responds to the needs of young people in the Bailiwick. YPG's first project was a partnership with Barnardo's, the UK's largest children's charity, commissioning them to provide an information, advice and guidance centre in St. Peter Port for young people aged 11-16 years called 'The Hub'. YPG's objective is that all young people should be able to find confidential support and advice from the very best professionals . The partnership with Barnardo's and the creation of this centre has been an important and significant development for young people in Guernsey.
When not working, Simon enjoys singing, playing the piano,
exercise, photography, gardening and travelling.

before finding her niche at Livingroom in residential sales,
