Joe joined the Sandersons’ team as Head of Block Management in our Canterbury office in 2018, after working on the merge of iConn with Sandersons. Joe studied Estate Management at Harper Adams University, he started his career as a Property Manager in rural Kent. He moved to London to take the position of Asset Manager at Neritum UK, where he was responsible for the team that looked after the company’s real estate assets. He successfully reduced the budgeted spend in London, and implemented a number of management systems to work in a proactive rather than reactive manner. He then helped to implement these systems with teams in Dubai, Thailand and Canada. After returning to Kent and a few years out of the property industry, Joe worked as a business consultant, working successfully with companies in a wide range of industries including; Property, Transportation, Pubs, Hair Dressing, Equestrian and Agriculture.

Sandersons’ offers a comprehensive service with a real personal feel for our clients, creating fantastic relationships between us and them, ensuring a service that is effective and gets the best results.
I was born in Kent, and lived here for 23 years before moving to London, I missed the countryside though and moved back to the village I was born in after a few years. Outside of work, I am the Chairman of The Kent Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs Charity. I spend most of my free time with my flock of sheep, Ivor my horse or my dogs Sid and Polly.

‘It will be fine’
Michelle has worked as an Accounts / Office Administrator within the Lettings Industry for 12 years and joined Iconn a year ago to oversee both the client and management accounts as well as the general day to day running of the office. iConn merged with Sandersons in March 2018 so we are really excited to have someone with Michelle's experience and attention to detail as part of the team.

I moved from London to Herne Bay 12 years ago and currently live on a farm with my Partner and youngest Son. I have 4 children and 2 grandchildren. I love family time! Get togethers with my children and grandchildren, eating, drinking, laughing and generally talking rubbish. At the weekends I like to go for walks along the beach or to the woods with my Partner and 2 dogs, Mollie the Pomski and Daisy the Terrier. I enjoy holidays abroad. Anywhere hot! My ideal holiday consists of lying in the sun being waited on, simple, but loving life!
What advice would you give your younger self?
Always be true to yourself.
