Julie joined Sandersons as a lettings negotiator in our Maidstone office in 2009 after a background working in media sales. She gained valuable experience within the lettings team, then joined the sales team and progressed into the role of valuations manager for both lettings and sales. She has gained a wealth of knowledge since joining in 2009 and built some incredibly strong working relationships with our clients. Julie is absolutely thriving in her current role as Lettings Manager for our Maidstone office. What do you like about Sandersons' approach? We don't have problems, we have solutions!
Outside of work I love to spend time with my family and my two grand dogs -Frank and Ernie (our two little Dachshund). I also help out at all the craft fairs in Penshurst Place and the Wealden show for the Barefoot welder, a local Designer and fabricator. I also like to go skiing and dancing when possible. My husband comes from Maidstone and we have lived in the area for around 34 years so my knowledge of the area is pretty good! What advice would you give your younger self?

Jess was head hunted by Sandersons in 2008. She was already working in the industry and we had been hugely impressed with her obvious flair for top-level negotiation. Her talent and enthusiasm quickly saw her progress into management. She has managed an expanding team and has received the highest praise from our many satisfied landlords and vendors alike. We are now really excited to have Jess settling into her new role as Lettings Area Manager.
I live in Sandwich with my beautiful daughter Bella. We are surrounded by our family and friends which is handy considering the amount of time we spend with them! I love to ‘get away’ and always make sure I have a holiday to look forward to being it in this country or abroad. When I’m not being ‘Mummy’ or at work I tend to head to the nearest spa (other Mum’s with toddlers will get this) to unwind! Life is totally bonkers, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What advice would I give my younger self?
Do all the crazy stuff. Take the risks. They’re totally worth it!
Caroline joined Sandersons in 2017 as a Property Manager to oversee the Ashford and Maidstone portfolios. She has 6 years of property management experience with sales & lettings experience from previous roles in Kent and South East London. In June 2018 she moved across into the Sales & Lettings team at our Maidstone Branch. We are really excited to have Caroline's industry knowledge, experience and passion for property with the front of house team in Maidstone.
Why are Sandersons different?
The personal contact we have with our customers, which unfortunately, is not always found in a corporate environment.
I was born in Harare, Zimbabwe, where I lived for 15 years. My family moved to Maidstone in 2006. I attended Sutton Valence Secondary School and went on to achieve a BA Hons Degree in Applied Arts at the University of Creative Arts. In my spare time, I take part in events organised by The Guide Dogs for the Blind Charity as this is close to my heart; 2 of my young relatives are beneficiaries of this charity. One of my favourite places in Maidstone is Mote Park, where I enjoy having a leisurely stroll or a jog around the lake.

Matt graduated from Canterbury Christchurch University in 2013 with a degree in Photography. He also holds an Adobe Certified Associate qualification for the use of Photoshop. Since Matt began photographing properties in 2014, he has photographed a wide range of homes for estate agents and property developers. He is a qualified domestic energy assessor and drone operator, he also produces video tours and designs marketing material. 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.
Holding a camera or with some sort of board on his feet
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.
