Meet The Team
As co-founder and Partner at Parks, Andrew has been here since the very beginning. Starting in the estate agency business for a corporate agency, Andrew realised there was a real need for an independent, local and above all friendly high-street agent in East Bristol – which he went on to establish with Amelia in 2005. Andrew has made Parks a popular local choice for people selling their homes with his focus on excellent customer service. Originally from Essex, Andrew has made Bristol his home since 1998 and although he is a keen runner and likes to keep fit, you might occasionally find him in Gregg’s next to the Parks office with a doughnut in hand!
Also a Partner at Parks, Amelia met Andrew at the same corporate agency where she had been since 2000, working in financial services as an Area Manager overseeing mortgage advisors across six branches in the south west.
Amelia’s passion has always been in selling property though and took a keen interest in the estate agency side of the business. When the opportunity arose to launch Parks she jumped at the chance and hasn’t looked back. With two young daughters Amelia knows first-hand how stressful selling your home and moving can be when you have children – that’s why she goes out of her way to make sure your experience is as quick and efficient as possible.
Steve is our Senior Sales Negotiator. He has been with us for over four years now and is an experienced agent in his own right, something you might not think for someone who looks so young! Starting out as an apprentice estate agent Steve has progressed to a senior role with Parks and expertly deals with all aspects of the business – valuations, viewings, managing offers on properties and progressing your sale through the chain to completion. You won’t meet an estate agent more driven and conscientious than Steve so we know you’ll be in very safe hands with him. When he isn’t working hard Steve can normally be found... actually we don’t know, Steve is always working!
Teresa is our newest member of the team and brings with her over 10 years’ experience in the lettings market across Bristol. Teresa looks after all of our landlords and managed properties as well as finding homes for all our prospective tenants. Teresa also plays a vital part in dealing with sales as well as booking and managing viewings on our properties. Teresa is mum of one so has her hands full outside of work too, but she loves to escape for a cocktail when she can!
Marlene makes sure that we are all where we need to be, at the right time and keeps the office running smoothly. As our office administrator she keeps everyone in check and organised. Marlene will always be able to help with any queries, from booking in a valuation or a viewing to just finding out more about East Bristol.
Eric has been with Parks almost from the start. He joined us in 2008 and has worked pretty much every weekend since, save for the odd holiday we allow him. If you call on a Saturday the chances are it will be Eric that helps you with your enquiry. In between answering our busy phones he deals with sales queries, arranges viewings and sorts out inspections and property repairs for our landlords. With a keen eye for numbers he is also responsible for managing our accounts. As well as being a keen walker with our resident dog, Betsy, Eric can often be found barbequing in his garden or looking after his five grandchildren.
