Will is one of the directors of Forest Marble, alongside his wife Daisy. Having worked in estate agency for 20 years, he always had dreamed about starting his own business. About four years ago, Will and Daisy decided to make the dream a reality when they saw a unique gap in the housing market for a new, innovative and technology driven estate agency yet holding old fashioned values of customer interaction. Hence, Forest Marble was born.
When Forest Marble opened it was just Will and Daisy, however they set up the office with six desks with the dream of filling them within the first two years. Filling up those six desks with Forest Marble team members was achieved before the first two years was up. He is also proud of the awards the team have won over the last three years as it shows the business is working and successful. Firstly, winning the British Property Awards for the best agent locally three years in a row. Most recently this year, Forest Marble was named Best Estate Agent by the Property Academy and Rightmove which rates Forest Marble one of the top 3% estate agencies in the country, something no other local estate agency has been able to do.
Will is passionate about making customers happy, getting people moving with the least hassle and, above all, values honesty over telling people what they want to hear. He is motivated by taking houses on the market and selling them for the best price possible.
In his free time Will loves spending time with his family, playing cricket, golf, walking Jura and also loves baking. His secret passion is baking sourdough bread!
