I am the marketing co-ordinator for Dawsons Property, with 10 sales and lettings branches in South Wales.
I began my career in estate agency in 2003, joining Dawsons in 2011.
I am passionate about helping the local community and organising charity events for Dawsons throughout the year. As mum to a son, George, born with a rare oesophageal condition, I support the TOFS CHARITY where I am a local contact helping other parents to cope with the common problems associated with the condition.
I have 3 children and live in Swansea, where I also am actively involved in the scout movement.
In the past, both myself and my wife (who is also involved in our business) acted as chairman of Solihull Rotaract, a young person’s organisation which was part of Rotary International. As well as being a social organisation we did a lot of fundraising for charity and service in the community. My wife was also involved in girl guiding charity, helping raise money for our 15-year-old daughter, along with other guides, to travel to Ghana in Africa to help in an orphanage. I am also currently the charity steward for my local Masonic lodge.
I am keen to meet with other agents in my region, get to know them, and promote the cause of charity fundraising within our industry.
After completing an NVQ in sports studies at college I worked in a gym for a year but I didn’t seem to have the passion for the job. I have always shown an interest in property from a young age. When I was 12 my parents sold and bought a home and I still remember the estate agents coming to the house (just so happened to be the company I work for now!). I remember viewing properties, and going to showrooms and I loved it!
I started working with Thomas Morris in 2006 as a trainee consultant and very quickly realised it was the career for me. Through hard work and dedication, I am now a Branch Partner of the St Ives office and still have the same buzz for property as I did when I first started.
As a full-time working mum of 2 who loves to meet up with friends and play competitive netball, you can imagine life is chaotic…..but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Charity work is a huge part of my job and I find it so rewarding not only that, but I have such a blast whatever event we do. I’m proud to be a regional ambassador for Agents Giving.
Our office network covers Shropshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Staffordshire providing us with some excellent links. We are also members of the Land & New Homes Network which further enhances our contact base. Within our areas, we have strong social media pages on Facebook and LinkedIn where posts are made by all offices, colleagues and a PR Company that we use.
In regards to my passion for fund raising, it is fair to say that it is a recently found passion. In recent years, various things have happened to family, friends and acquaintances that have put life in to perspective somewhat and at risk of using a cliché, has made me value what I have and appreciate how lucky I am.
I have a son called Archie who is nearly 4 with my wife Laura. Since having a family, the all too familiar and tragic stories of children requiring potentially lifesaving treatment abroad stick in my mind so much more and ultimately inspired the recent golf day amongst other things we have done to raise money. In another local campaign “Wear Red for Zach” we donated fees from sales in the area he lived in. He, like Harry, met their fund raising target and is undergoing treatment.
In short, I feel I have a lot more to give from a fund raising point of view and the golf day has given me the confidence and inspiration to kick on and help make a difference in a wider area. As my experience, knowledge and support base continue to grow, I cant wait to get our next event organised. Whilst my expertise (other than selling houses!) is golf, my network of contacts will ensure we can make a success out of various other types of event.
I am also a committee member of the Ironbridge Business Consortium which is a group of like minded business owners that meet regularly to introduce new initiatives designed to drive business to local firms whilst enhancing the town for it’s visitors and residents.
Whilst effectively covering the whole of our patch with a land and new homes cap on, my desk is in our Ironbridge office and we have found it hugely beneficial to be as involved in our community as possible. Likewise, all of our branch principals are driven to involve themselves in the local area as much as possible.
Sarah-Anne joined Macleod & MacCallum in 2001 and manages the Residential Lettings Department.

Macleod & MacCallum have a great charity ethos and pride themselves in giving back to the local communities in which they operate.

The grant comprises of five “Mini Mac” Grants of £500 each and one “Mighty Mac” Grant of £1,000. Sarah-Anne shares this ethos and arranged for her team to take part in the Queensferry Crossing Walk, where pedestrians were granted the “once-in-a-lifetime experience” of walking across the new road bridge. The Queensferry Crossing Experience ballot attracted almost 250,000 applicants, with 50,000 given the one-off chance to cross the bridge on foot. Sarah-Anne and her team decided to do this is in aid of sIMBA (Simpson’s Memory Box Appeal).
I am born and raised in South Croydon and have moved out gradually over the years as our family has grown. Having started my working life in Investment Banking by becoming one of the only female Sales Traders in the City, I was introduced to a Client-Centric sales process from the word go. I have been fortunate throughout my career and after I left the City to gain good experience, working for a global brand ending up as their Regional Sales Development Manager with an annual Budget of £10 million.
The transition to Co-owning Walter & Mair with Toby many years ago was a leap of faith, but not one that I have ever regretted. Toby is a phenomenal agent and we now have a fabulous team around us, meaning that most of my time is spent behind the scenes doing the operational day-to-day running of the business, marketing, finances, and answering the phones when everyone else is tied up. Fabulous is my favorite word and my family and my friends are my raison d’etre. At home we have 2 beautiful, growing too fast, girls and the love of my life – our dog – Freddy.
I am delighted to join Agents Giving as a regional ambassador. I have 28 years of estate agency experience. I was an area director at the Connells group up until 2018 having worked with them for for 14 years. I then took a grown-up gap year and when I returned I joined eXp UK.
I am currently the chairperson for the uk agent advisory council and also part of the global agent advisory council so I am able to offer a solution to all eXp agents to do more for charities in their community and also on a national scale.
I support my local charities personally on an ad hoc basis I aim to get more involved with fundraising causes, especially in the current climate. I find nothing more rewarding than giving back to my local community and I am working on widening my network and delighted to be more involved with like-minded estate agents.

I believe I would make a good ambassador as I have been in the industry for over 12 years. I feel extremely passionate about fundraising for charities, having lost my brother-in-law to cancer last October, he was 21, I have been heavily involved with Macmillan and Teenage Cancer Trust. These are both extremely close to my heart.
We are also in the process of setting up a charity in his name to allow a 16-18 year old, without the funding, to be able to go to theatre college. With this, I am assisting my husband in creating a video to release my brother-in-law’s song to help raise money for the charity as well as holding a charity evening in November.
I feel my passion, emotion and proactive approach will prove I am a good ambassador for Agents Giving and I hope I am considered for this role.
