Up close and personal............

Meet our Brynmawr team 

You’ll need to head to the highest town in Wales to meet our next team in this month’s Up Close and Personal, as we are in the market town of Brynmawr. Who used to work in Cyprus? Who would like to live on a farm? And whose guilty pleasure is Million Dollar Listing?

Name: Melissa Price

Occupation: Branch Manager

Specialist Subject: Property in Brynmawr

What do you love most about Brynmawr? The people; they are friendly and proud, and there are many who commit and contribute to the community.  Aside from this, I love the natural beauty spots right on our doorstep.

What got you into property? I did work experience at an estate agency when I was 14, and loved it. As soon as I turned 16, I applied for a part-time Saturday position and was offered the job! The rest, as they say, ‘is history’.

What is the advantage of using Bidmead Cook? The staff. We are the faces of the company, and are successful relationship-builders providing a friendly and professional service.

What’s your favourite property TV programme? Million Dollar Listing.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? It would have to be Wales for me, maybe somewhere coastal, but a holiday home in the Mediterranean would be nice, of course!

What snacks do you keep in your desk drawer? Almonds, and occasionally Welsh Cakes.

What is your second love? Next to property, of course. I love climbing mountains and walking my poochie.

 

 

Name: Sara Williams

Occupation: Sales Negotiator

Specialist Subject: Property in Brynmawr

What do you love most about Brynmawr? The colourful, friendly characters we have the pleasure of meeting.

What got you into property? A change of career. I had always worked in sales, but it was never customer facing, and I felt I needed to be “out there” so estate agency was the perfect opportunity.

What is the advantage of using Bidmead Cook? Dealing with us lovely ladies! We all genuinely enjoy our job and working together, which clearly shines through in the friendly service we offer.

What’s your favourite property TV programme? Wanted Down Under.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? Spain. As a family we have many years of fond memories of holidaying in Spain, and the Spaniards always seem to be so friendly and chilled - they seem to have a much more relaxed, natural way of life...plus, I do love a siesta ?

What snacks do you keep in your desk drawer? Nuts!

What is your second love? Next to property, of course.  “My” home, family and friends! It’s said that you should make the most of the little things in your life, because one day you will look back and realise they were big things. It may be a cliché, but there really IS no place like home.

What do you love most about Brynmawr? The warm and friendly people, the beautiful scenic walks on our doorstep, and the pub!

What got you into property? I left the civil service after 28 years of being glued to a desk, and was lucky enough to get the job of Sales Negotiator. I’ve always been fascinated by property, especially older properties, so for me this is my dream job!

What do you love most about Brynmawr? The community spirit.

What got you into property? I worked as an overseas holiday representative in Cyprus, and have always enjoyed working with the public.

What is the advantage of using Bidmead Cook? They provide a service that is second to none.

What’s your favourite property TV programme? A Place in the Sun.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? Cyprus. I love the culture, climate, and the people.
