Name: Jay Herbert

Occupation: Sales Negotiator & Residential Valuer

Specialist Subject: Property in Merthyr Tydfil

 

What do you love most about Merthyr Tydfil?

The variety of lunch choices. You haven’t lived if you haven’t had the rice pudding from the local Turkish place, Wrap and Roll!

What got you into property? My sister Claire is actually the Manager of the Aberdare branch. I grew up mail dropping and amending prices on particulars for pocket money. I even did my work experience while in comprehensive with the Aberdare branch, nearly ten years ago now!

What is the advantage of using Bidmead Cook? Without question the level of “bang for your buck”. I’m a bit of a statistics freak and constantly use Rightmove to see where we rank against our competitors. During 2016 we had the highest conversion rate in the area; which, simply put, means we sold the most of what was listed with us!

What’s your favourite property TV programme? Without question, Game of Thrones! If you think about it, they’re all fighting over a chair in a glorified house (and I bet it’s listed).

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? Within the UK, it would definitely be west Wales. If I could have my pick, though, it would have to be Fiji.

What snacks do you keep in your desk drawer? At the moment I have a tin of tuna, a sandwich bag full of old whey protein, and a bottle of Palmer’s cocoa butter.

What is your second love? Next to property, of course. Surfing. In a perfect world I’d go every day!
