Jay started with Bradleys Countrywide 17 years ago as a Trainee Business Transfer Agent and now works alongside Lee Chambers and looks after all things Management and Residential.
Jay’s day is never the same whether it is meeting with clients, completing quarterly Landlord rental statements or Non Resident Landlord tax forms on his Landlords behalf to rushing out of the door at all hours to property emergencies. Jay also manages our Residential Sales Department which often gets praised for its excellent customer service and making a stressful sales process seem that little bit easier. Jay has many strings to his bow, but who’s main purpose is to make the client feel comfortable that their property needs are being looked after.
Outside of work Jay has two children and is a keen sports fan, he also is a fan of music of a range of genres (some of which the office are not too keen on) and gets to as many gigs and concerts as possible.
