Meet the Team
When it all started in 1992 it was very simple. There was Teresa for sales or Simon for lettings. That was it, no more, just the two 30 somethings striking out on a new venture to bring their ideas of how Estate Agency should be done to an unsuspecting public......Nowadays there’s one or two others for you to meet.
Founding Partner. Teresa started her career in commercial property agency and moved to residential agency in Brook Green in 1988. Teresa set up the sales side of the business when the company opened in 1992. Her boundless energy is focused on keeping Finlay Brewer as the "go to" agent in the area. Outside work Teresa has a passion for exercise and spends most weekends on the South Coast.
Founding Partner. Simon's background in architecture and building led him naturally to set up and run the lettings and management side of the business. Simon's time is now devoted to overseeing the Lettings and Management team, developing Finlay Brewer's community links and looking for new opportunities for the Finlay Brewer brand. His weekends are with his family and he is learning the art/science of beekeeping.
Partner. Paul moved to London from Dublin in 1985 and initially worked in the city as an insurance broker from where he moved to Petplan where he was the first Director of Equine. Paul has been described as the "heart of Finlay Brewer", his passion for property is legendary and his results are unequalled. Paul has a busy and eclectic social life.
Brook Green Office Sales Team
Sales Manager. Mike has over 25 years of experience in estate agency and joined Finlay Brewer in 2009 to look after our flat sales. Outside work Mike is a qualified skipper, he also enjoys travel, music (especially Elvis), Chelsea FC and is a Foster Carer for Hammersmith & Fulham.
Sales Broker. Penny was pursuing a career in award winning TV production when, while producing a property programme, she realised she HAD TO work in estate agency. Local girl Penny, who is partial to exercise and “happy food”, says: “After living in the area for over 20 years there’s not much I don’t know about what it has to offer".
Administration and Compliance Executive. Calm and wonderfully organised, Sophie is the perfect foil for our outgoing and busy sales team, she keeps them all under control. We lured Soph from a comfortable life in telecommunications. A west country girl Sophie has a spectacular collection of shoes, these alone are worth the trip to our office!
Finlay Brewer Lettings Team
Head of the Lettings Team. Chef, drinkologist, husband, dad, wordsmith, publican and quiz master Jon took his time discovering estate agency. Good things come to those who wait. Jon is an experienced long distance runner and will casually run the 8 miles to and from work rather than take a car. He is working to become the best estate agent in the world, probably.
Lettings Broker. Joseph started his career in banking but the lure of property brought him our way. When not at work he can often be found in the gym. He has a passion for cars so is particularly excited when in one of our Finlay Brewer branded VW Polos.
Lettings Team Coordinator. Colombian born Monica, an MBA graduate, moved to London 5 years ago. With 7 years’ experience in quality control and process improvement Monica is an efficient and effective colleague. Out of the office Monica’s time is spent with family, books and at the gym.
Askew Road Office Sales Team
Assistant Manager. Nick comes to us with plenty of experience selling property in Central London. His interests beyond his family are motor sport and cricket. Nick tottles around West London on his trusty scooter and has been spotted giving locals a cheeky lift.
Sales Broker. Utilising his Irish charm, Dublin born James is a fantastic asset to the Askew Road sales team. He has been a property finder for the last 2 years. He is useless at most sports but does try his hand at golf and tennis, being typically Irish though, he likes Guinness and a good chat.
Sales Broker and Office Manager. Possibly one of the most stylish people we have, it's worth coming in to get some fashion and beauty tips from the great Debs. Very passionate Six Nations Rugby fan (WALES) she enjoys 60's music, jiving and evenings with her family and dogs.
Property Manager. Andrew has a degree in law and as a result is the sharp end of Property Management stick. Now on his second stretch at Finlay Brewer Andrew returned to us in 2009 having gained valuable experience in a corporate chain. Live by the contract or incur the talons of the law. Andrew is married and has recently been blessed with twins.
Property Manager. Candy started her career in banking and has been in property management for 7 years. When not at work Candy is a busy lady chasing her young son around the childrens' party circuit! Given the chance of some relaxation time she rides horses or experiments in the kitchen. Brutally efficient and widely knowledgeable our super mum is a fabulous asset to the team.
Property Manager. Abby looks after our building contracts and property inspections. She has built a strong team of contractors around her and will tackle anything from refreshing a bathroom to a full refurbishment. Abby is an excellent horsewoman and a talented gardener.
Director. In 2010 Rista, who was at that time a Director at Finlay Brewer, moved to the South of France with his family where he worked as a property consultant in Monaco selling and renting some of the most valuable properties in Europe. We encouraged him to return in 2014 to develop our international consultancy project. He now spends his time between London and Monaco servicing clients in both cities. Our international services include property finding in Monaco for sale or for rent as well as promoting Finlay Brewer's properties to the locals in Monte Carlo. Rista doesn't have much spare time but when he does he can be found in the gym or on the beach with his family.
Behind every successful man.........well it's Cheryl's hard work in the background that makes Rista look so efficient. Cheryl's time is spent coordinating with clients and our Monaco office as well as running the marketing and PR for Finlay Brewer International. Her hobbies.....red wine and Formula 1.
