In 1986 Reeds Rains, the company I worked for changed to Prudential Property Services. With the change in name came a change in job title - from Associate Partner to Area Director.

Having climbed the corporate ladder in short order I discovered that paperwork and politics were not my cup of tea.

The early 1990s weren't the most auspicious of economic climates in which to be starting a new business - especially one in the house building sector. Still, being a Land Agent ticked a lot of the right boxes and being my own Land Agent ticked them all. Less paperwork and no politics. My cup of tea.
