Success stories

Erin Myrie

Property Services Consultant

Describe life at Chestertons in one word: Enthusiastic

Describe your Chestertons journey...

After leaving sixth form I began my Chestertons journey as an apprentice lettings negotiator, where I developed my property knowledge and customer service skills.
Once my apprenticeship was complete I joined the property services department, where I use everything I learnt as a negotiator to help others around me and provide the best customer service possible.

You have to want it. 'You write your own pay check' is a saying that applies to a lot of the roles in our company so it's essential to have a driven personality.

Matthew Chard

Associate Director, Sales

Describe life at Chestertons in one word: Ambitious

Describe your Chestertons journey...

I began as a Sales Negotiator in our Battersea & Clapham office where I was given the support and training that I needed to learn and develop my knowledge of property. In June 2016, just when the Brexit turmoil was beginning to unfold I was offered an amazing opportunity to join one of our Prime Central London Offices. Now, working in our Knightsbridge & Belgravia office I have the privilege of selling some of the best real estate that London has to offer.

The key to success in this industry is your output and drive to succeed. Building a knowledge of the London market is essential and will allow you to build rapport with anyone that you meet and leave a lasting impression.

Describe your Chestertons journey...

Having commenced my career fresh out of university in 2012, I worked my way up at two other London agencies and joined Chestertons in 2018 as manager of the Putney and West Putney sales offices. I believe Chestertons is the right company for me to keep progressing in my career and reach my full potential.

What is your favourite part about Chestertons?

Chestertons is truly a philanthropic company. It is fairly rare, particularly in property, to find a business committed to so much charitable work. This is something we're all proud to shout about in our local communities.

Advice to people looking to get into property?

Go for it! If you are a people person and a self-starter, it's the best job in the world. No day is the same; there will be highs and there will be lows but, ultimately, you get out what you put in and the rewards are fantastic.

Lenka Zavodna

Director, St John's Wood Lettings

Describe life at Chestertons in one word: Trustworthy

Describe your Chestertons journey...

I love property and interior design and I always knew I want to run my own office so after leaving my previous job in property management I joined Chestertons as an office coordinator for sales & lettings. After a couple of years at the front desk I learned everything I needed to know about lettings and tenancy agreements as well as other administration duties, so my next step was to learn how to negotiate and that's when I joined the St John's Wood branch. I started as a junior negotiator but quickly moving to a senior, associate negotiator and in December 2016 my work aim came true and I became the office manager.

What is your favourite part about Chestertons?

People... we have great people and that's what makes Chestertons. We are not just any stereotypical Estate Agents but we actually care what we do and in my opinion, we provide the best service.

Advice to people looking to get into property?

If you a can motivate yourself and are a hard worker that never gives up - GO FOR IT!

Nikki Mention-Dennis

Area Director

Describe life at Chestertons in one word: Tenacious

Describe your Chestertons journey...

I joined Chestertons in 2012, having already worked in the industry for 9 years. I wanted a fresh challenge with a reputable, well established brand and from my very first interview I knew that Chestertons was a company that I wanted to work for! I felt very lucky to have been given the opportunity to run the Letting department in the well-established Chiswick Branch, where I felt welcomed and supported from day one. Over the years I have progressed my career from branch manager to area director - overseeing 4 offices.

Advice to people looking to get into property?

Be prepared to graft! You will be someone who thrives under pressure and the excitement of sealing the deal and hitting targets.

Cory Askew

Regional Director

Describe life at Chestertons in one word: Determined

Describe your Chestertons journey...

I started working at Chestertons back in 2003 as a co-ordinator in Canary Wharf. I really enjoyed the work, and having seen many of my colleagues' progress through the company, I wanted to do the same. Moving between sales and lettings and back again, my next step was into a role as a negotiator, then to manager, and I now oversee all of the sales operations for the Central London region of Chestertons.

With any sales role you need self-discipline, tenacity and a strong work ethic. There are no silver bullets or shortcuts to success and year-in-year-out, our top performers are those that work the hardest and therefore generate the highest output of activity.
