Camden Team

Our team have built a wealth of knowledge and expertise in their respective sectors. Read below to understand a bit more about what drives them and please connect with them.

Originally from Manchester, I came to London in 1985 and cut my teeth on the London market on Upper Street in Islington. I joined Hotblack Desiato in 1987 and became a Director in the early 1990’s. I currently head the Sales team in Camden. Even after all these years I still get a buzz from the business, whether gaining an instruction, the cut and thrust of negotiation or successfully concluding a sale. I am married to Marion and have 2 sons. I am a keen golfer and lifelong supporter of Manchester City – a true test of character for anyone, though it has become a little easier in recent years!

I have been in the industry for over 10 years now, having worked in some of the London’s prime markets, I took a break to travel Europe and when I returned was happy to be given the opportunity to join HD. I feel really blessed to work here as the people are friendly, attentive, focused on clients’ needs and have a wealth of experience. I love to work with people to help them find their ideal home and make connections, with landlords and tenants alike. Love to get outdoors with my dog, Mila, keeping fit/ exploring healthy foods, spend time with family and friends and attending The Church and serving in my community.

Letting Negotiator

I was born and brought up in Highbury, before studying in Camden later for sixth form. I know the area like the back of my hand I’ve seen how it’s changed and developed for the better over recent years. I joined Hotblack Desiato in March 2023 as a letting negotiator and six months later started a hybrid role doing sales also. This has given broader knowledge of the industry and haven’t looked back since, learning lots and maintaining an honest approach to work. I love meeting new people and ultimately helping them find a new property whether that be renting or buying. Outside of work I love to watch and play football. I’m a big Arsenal fan which has been character building to say the least growing up!
