Alan Bennett

Born and raised in St Ives, I have lived in St Neots since I was 16. I started work in Estate Agency as a trainee and progressed to Junior Valuer by the time I was 20. From there I fast tracked to Valuer and subsequently Manager by the time I was 22 working for Heygates in Godmanchester. By 1990 I was working for Gatehouse Estates as a Senior Valuer and was involved in spearheading two cold start offices in Huntingdon and St Neots which I was also involved in managing. During my 13 years at Gatehouse Estates I worked between St Neots, Huntingdon , Godmanchester and Kimbolton principally being involved in Valuations. A large slice of my work also involved the training of new staff many of whom were new to estate agency.

In 2002 I left with a fellow Valuer and Senior Negotiator to start our own business in St Ives. Over the years there have been many changes both professionally and personally. I am married with three children of 11 years and under and live in Eaton Socon where we have been for 13 years.

Having been continually working through some of the toughest and hardest markets the UK has ever had to deal with, I can say that I have gained immeasurable experiences along the way that have contributed to the advice I have been able to deliver to sellers and buyers alike in forming their decisions regarding the housing market. Being an Independent Agent has allowed us to interact with customers with respect, honesty and professionalism to above and beyond the expectation of clients over the years.

Now with a refreshed and re-branded modern image we are ready for the next journey ahead.
