New sales team at Connells

Have your say

Since Ashley Cass took over as manager of Connells Bury St Edmunds branch the office has gone from strength to strength.

Now having gathered around him a new sales team chosen for their pro-active, enthusiastic and customer focussed approach, he believes Connells should be the estate agent of choice for people who are serious about selling.

“Each person brings a different dynamic to the team but we all have the same belief and that’s to deliver excellent customer service,” says Ashley.

The new team consists of Residential Sales Manager Ashley Cass, Sales Executive Richard Witney, Negotiator Thomas Millar, Mortgage Consultant Patrick Ambrose and Administrator Vicky Pike.

Ashley is one of Connells’ home- grown stars and began his career in estate agency at the company’s Ipswich branch in 2006.

He climbed the ranks to become residential sales manager of the Colchester office in 2010 before taking on the role of manager at the Bury St Edmunds branch in November.

Richard Witney worked for an estate agency in London for eight years before moving to Bury St Edmunds with his family earlier this year and joining Connells.

He is personable and professional, and looks forward to helping more local people to move home. Thomas Millar has an energetic and determined approach.

Although he does not have any experience of working within the estate agency industry, Thomas has a passion for property and prides himself on getting the right results for customers.

Patrick Ambrose is committed to making sure customers are not paying over the odds for their mortgage and they have the right product for them.

Vicky Pike is a trained mortgage consultant and has more than eight years experience of working in the financial services and estate agency industries. She is an integral member of the team providing vital organisational support and makes sure everything is running smoothly.

Ashley says: “The first half of 2012 has been very busy and in June we continued to see a good level of properties coming on the market. With a high level of committed buyers registered with us, properties that are correctly priced and well presented are selling well. However, demand is continuing to outstrip supply and we need more properties of all types and prices to sell to meet demand.”
