If he wasn't selling houses, Stuart would be fighting crime...
What’s special/different about your agency?
We are well known for our outstanding marketing and for having a lovely selection of prestige properties for sale and for rent.
Where do you live and with whom?
I live in St Albans, on my own – peace and quiet.
Why did you buy your current property?
I have bought and sold many properties over the years, being in the industry. I bought this as it was a pretty little house that needed some TLC.
If you weren’t an estate agent, what would you be?
I would have liked to have joined the police force.
When did you buy your first property and what was it like?
I bought my first property when I was 19. It was a two bedroom flat in St Albans that needed work. I bought it for £54,000 and sold it for £92,000. I was very pleased with the results. My father and I refurbished it and then sold it to continue my property experience.
What’s your dream house?
I work, live, eat and drink in St Albans and love walking into town. I would love to buy a detached house set back from the road, somewhere like Fishpool Street. I love the old character properties.
