Karen Fenton

Newark born and bred, Karen has been involved in the estate agency business for over 30 years, and she has built up a wealth of experience in the Southwell property market.

Initially, Karen will be based at the Kirkgate offices in Newark, working in the lettings and rental management department to gain a greater understanding of that side of the business. However, she will be returning to the Southwell office on King Street later in the year.

Senior Partner, Alasdair Morrison, commented:

“I have known Karen for over 20 years and have always admired her work ethic and professionalism.”

Business Development Manager, Chris Pick, is similarly pleased that such an experienced property negotiator and manager has joined the company to become part of their successful property team.

Karen added:

“I am looking forward to working in the rentals department to broaden my knowledge skill set required for the ever-changing Newark and Southwell property market”.

Karen also said:

“I absolutely love everything about my job. It’s so exciting to be involved in the whole process, from valuation, through to instruction, then viewings. Once we get to the sale, then I work extra hard to ensure that the sale then goes through to completion by liaising with all parties, such as solicitors and other agents.

“I’m only happy with we have a happy vendor and happy purchaser. I’m hoping to bring the same level of enthusiasm to the Lettings side of the business.

“I really enjoy meeting people and have enjoyed challenging sales. I’ve dealt with so many properties over the years. Back in 1985, I remember when a local terraced house was just under £10,000. We didn’t have any computers and definitely no internet back then. Indeed, not all vendors had telephones, so managing the sale was very different.

“I became very proficient with a  polaroid camera and remember sticking photos onto the property details. How different that is to the digital cameras of today?

“I particularly enjoyed keeping hot boxes for qualified buyers and that hasn’t really changed. We still keep files of qualified and keen buyers today so we can ensure that they are the first to hear about new properties coming onto the market.”
