Being the newest member of the team I am extremely honoured to join this long established independent estate agency, I look forward to learning all aspects of property sector.  My previous experience within the educational background has given me a good understanding for supporting the needs of families.  Outside of work I enjoy socialising with family and friends.

As with other reviewers, I found Balch's to be a friendly, personal service with extensive local knowledge of the Chelmsford housing market. I was kept informed every step of the way, and felt that my sale was being handled as a matter of priority. A very reassuring service.
