My Background…  


Prior to starting my estate agency career, I was a supervisor for EDS (Electronic Data Systems) who were responsible for making the new photo card driving licences at the DVLA in Swansea. I began my career in property in 2004, now over 12 years ago, when I joined the local estate agents Dawsons and quickly established myself as a strong member of staff and progressed quickly within the company. I had spent many years in the sales department before moving over to lettings and it was at that time that I first met with Matthew who was the branch manager of my department. We spent around 3 years together in lettings during which time we turned what was a lower performing department into the strongest by the time we left to set up Fresh in April 2011. It was in part this achievement that gave us the confidence to go out alone. In addition, both Matthew and I could see we had shared ambition and just as important, trust in each other’s character.


Setting up Fresh…


This was a gamble as both Matthew and I had young families and were giving up secure jobs and salaries. Looking back this didn’t seem to matter to us as our trust in each other and the excitement of what we could achieve carried us into this fantastic adventure. Fast forward and we have a thriving property business and we could not be more proud of our achievements.


My Department…


The business has changed so much since we started with the two of us. As I write this in 2017 we have 16 staff! I look after the residential and student arm of the business. This is a huge department and I couldn’t do it without the hard work and commitment of the team we have assembled.


My Passion for Service…


I thrive in a busy sales environment and still get a buzz from putting property deals together. I always demand the highest customer service from our staff and strive for perfection in everything we do as a business. It’s now great to see my team get the same enjoyment from putting property deals together. A combination of solid procedures and quality staff gives us the platform to do business whilst maintaining our high levels of service. Once you have this in place, you can really enjoy your work.


My Busy Family Life…


I’m happily married to my wife Claire and we have 4 amazing children, ages 15, 8, 7 & 5.   You can imagine how busy life is with my team at home! I love spending time with my family and find myself constantly on the go with the children and their various sports and hobbies.

I have a portfolio of over 50 student rooms in Swansea along with other investments elsewhere. Since I moved my business over to them from other agents my occupancy rates have remained extremely high. Dean has helped me over the years far excelling his responsibilities. Emma my new manager is always “on the ball “quickly pointing out issues that need attention. They are by far (speaking from experience) the most professional letting agents in Swansea, give them a try you will not be disappointed.Steve Hadley, Neath.
