About Us

The best estate agents have a thorough technical knowledge of property; the local area and conveyancing as well as being fussy perfectionists with a camera and putting as much effort into the preparation of property particulars as writing an A-grade essay. They are a hand to hold and the voice of reason when things are getting rocky and the people who should joyfully dance with you when you finally collect the key to your new house. They should, above all, care deeply about you the customer and your home.

We are blessed to have an office full of these wonderful people…

    A little bit about me...

    I was the first of my family born on the Isle of Wight but feel like an Islander through and through. After being educated in Ryde, I joined a local estate agency after my A Levels. Buying my own agency in 2005 was the best 30th birthday present ever! I’m surrounded by an amazing group of friends and colleagues who all share my passion for property and people. I live in Brighstone with my three doggy babies (you’ll meet the gang if you pop into my office).

    • My role as Managing Director:

      The overall running of the business (fun stuff like accounts and VAT returns); specialist market appraisals, especially village property and making sure we offer a level of service that surprises and delights our customers.

    • What makes me smile:

      Getting my hands in the dirt at my allotment surrounded by sprinting sighthounds.

    • Not my cup of tea:

      Incorrectly used apostrophes on advertising signs. Grr!

    • Favourite Island spot:

      Brook beach at low tide on a freezing but bright winter morning.

    • Guilty Pleasure:

      Crocheting when I should be doing my VAT return! (And Channing Tatum but don’t tell anyone.)

    A little bit about me...

    I was born and bred on the Island, and am a Gurnard girl. I lived away for a few years in London and then realised the error of my ways and moved back with my husband in 1996. My background as a financial advisor eventually led to working in estate agency, which is where I met Megan. When she set up on her own in 2005 I was thrilled to join her and here I am, doing something that I love and am lucky enough to be good at. I cannot imagine working anywhere else or with anyone else, and even though being a great estate agent is stressful and emotional, it is hugely rewarding and I wouldn’t swap it for the world!

    • My role as Office Manager:

      The daily running of the office and supporting the team; market appraisals all over the Island and the juicy, difficult parts of sales progressing.

    • What makes me smile:

      Long sunny days; really good locally sourced food and exploring in my VW camper.

    • Not my cup of tea:

      Having to cook my own tea.

    • Favourite Island spot:

      Gurnard Green at sunset – it is where my husband and I sat and decided to come back to the Island, and have never regretted it..

    • Guilty Pleasure:

      Strictly come dancing…  SEVEEEEEN!

    • Super Power (according to Megan):

      Quite simply the best estate agent on the IW.  (I’ve no proof but I dare you to find a better one!)

    A little bit about me...

    Born in Carisbrooke, I have lived on the Island all my life and love it here. I joined the MBEA team in 2014 as an Administrator and can honestly say submitting my application was one of the best career decisions I’ve ever made. Having not had any previous estate agency experience it was an exciting new challenge to learn from the ground up and have made new friends along the way. I now live in East Cowes with the men in my life (my amazing husband and two young sons).

    • My role as Administrator:

      The cheerful front face of the office handling all the administrative aspects of the business as well as chasing sales through from point of offer to exchange of contracts.

    • What makes me smile:

      Sitting in front of my sewing machine working on my latest project.

    • Not my cup of tea:

      Frogs (they know my fear and always jump at me)

    • Favourite Island spot:

      Carisbrooke Castle – I have some great childhood memories of walking around the moat in height order with friends (I was always at the back for being the shortest)

    • Guilty Pleasure:

      Watching trashy MTV  programs.

    • Super Power (according to Megan):

      The most organised person I’ve ever worked with. (And unfailingly happy every day!)

People say the nicest things...

  • They really worked hard to keep chain together & keep everything moving forward. Would definitely recommend to friends. Found all the ladies helpful bringing different experiences to keep things on track. Nothing seemed to much trouble, Well done!
