He brings huge enthusiasm and energy to the role and believes passionately in working in association with clients to deliver a top end service. His commitment to this end is evident in his dealings with vendors and landlords alike. Question re Sandersons approach - Antony is extremely passionate about providing excellent customer service in addition to achieving top results for his clients and achieves this by building relationships based solely on trust. An example of this is one of our major Unique Selling Points in the fact we do not tie our clients into any fixed term contract unlike the majority of other Estate Agents.
Why are Sandersons different?
At Sandersons, we have an extremely pro-active approach to business which helps us to achieve top results for our clients. We achieve this by maintaining sensible stock levels which we regularly ring and email out to our entire database of registered applicants in addition to regularly rotating our office windows with fresh property stock, updating our property images and particulars online as well as our Featured Property Listings on the portals.
I joined the estate agency industry in 2006 and have worked in Ashford for the majority of the time as well as Folkestone, Dover and Canterbury so I have a good knowledge of the local market and surrounding towns. When away from the office, I have my hands full with my son and have always been a keen sportsman. I enjoy running but playing and watching football is my main passion.

Don’t waste money on a nice car, put it into savings or property!!

What do you like most about Sandersons’ approach? It is refreshing to work for an agent that has such a straight-forward approach and to work with colleagues that are all working as part of a team.

My personal photographic work has been selected for a number of competitions, it was most notably featured in the Royal Photographic Society 'International Print Competition', as part of it was included in a touring UK exhibition. I also held a solo exhibition in Broadstairs, Kent. Aside from undertaking my own photography, I enjoy snowboarding and skateboarding. I also have a passion for travelling, in 2016 I went on a trip around the world. In my spare time I go snowboarding at the local dry ski slope, go skateboarding or spend time with my girlfriend. What advice would you give to your younger self? Do what you enjoy because life is short.
Lettie first joined Sandersons in 2007 as a junior lettings negotiator and was a member of the Canterbury team for six years. She left the company in May 2013 to gain more experience and work in the sales industry for three years. She feels this helped her develop a greater knowledge and confidence in both lettings and sales. We are delighted that Lettie re-joined the Canterbury team in 2016 as a negotiator and brought her experience with her. Lettie is now re-visiting her passion for art and creativity and has joined our Development Team to working on marketing as a photographer.
What do you like most about Sandersons' approach?
Having experienced the work ethic and culture in other Estate Agencies I can confidently say that Sandersons approach to all aspects of lettings and sales is different as they genuinely care about the customer and the experience that they receive at every stage of the process.
I live in Faversham and have worked in Canterbury for the last twelve years. I live with my long term partner who I met at secondary school. After 16 years together we have just tied the knot and had the most beautiful wedding in Skiathos. I enjoy exercise and cooking and have recently taken up photography which has revived the creative side of my personality. I took GCSE and A level art and this has reminded me of the passion I have for all things creative. I also enjoy holidays in hot sunny climates and hope to travel more in the future as I still have much of the world to see.
What advice would you give your younger self?
If I could give my younger self some advice it would be to have a bit more belief in myself and not to worry so much about the little things.
