Amanda Ryley

Amanda Ryley, Senior Lettings Negotiator

Amanda has a very calm influence within the office which if rumours are to be believed was borne from her earlier life as a Shaolin Monk. Her martial arts background has certainly come in useful since starting work at Ferndown Estates particularly when agreeing her annual leave.

Sharon Campbell

Sharon Campbell, Lettings Negotiator

Sharon joined Ferndown Estates straight from a circus background and often admits to yearning for a return back to the 'Big top'. As a Trapeze artist we occasionally have times where Sharon has to be lured down from the roof whilst in her spangly leotard.

Joanne Valentine

Joanne Valentine, Lettings Negotiator

Jo has a breadth of experience in the lettings industry and has become like a second mother to some of our longer term tenants. This does come with minor consequences on both sides following the number of times tenants come in for their pocket money and the times Jo ultimately ends up grounding them for two weeks.

Dawn Whelan

Dawn Whelan, Lettings Clerk

Following in the footsteps of her Great Uncle, Dawn spent many of her formative years across the five continents looking and documenting exotic and rare creatures. After finding many new species of water birds in the Appalachian Mountains, Dawn was thrilled to have her favourite species of long legged waders named after her. 'The Waddling Whelan' can now be spotted in several wine bars around Solihull

Alex James

Alex James, Sales Negotiator

Alex aims to bring an element of excitement and flair to the world of sales through his passion for any kind of Latin dance music. His Cuban heels can be heard rhythmically beating out the beat of a Rumba whilst taking photographs in empty properties. His real passion comes when the Samba beat kicks in where his tight fitting, eye catching array of sequined outfits which he designs and makes himself proves a real eye opener.

Samantha Dunne

Samantha Dunne, Sales Negotiator

Samantha's passion for archaeology has found her several feet down in many trenches over the past few years scraping and profiling rare artifacts from 1000's of years ago. This has helped Sam enormously over the time she has been with Ferndown Estates in identifying foodstuffs that have been left in the company fridge.

Louise Devereux, Sales Progressor

The job of the sales progressor can be an extremely stressful position and Louise does a sterling job in updating vendors, buyers and Solicitors alike. Louise does comment that she can spend all of her working hours talking and talking non-stop, which can prove difficult with her days off as Louise can be found in Birmingham City Centre performing as a mime artist.
