Following our rebrand earlier this year, we’re delighted to welcome two new faces to the Clarke Munro family.
Having taken over from founders Margaret and Keith Thirlwell in 2004, partners Wendy Clarke and Nicola Munro decided the time was right to put their names above the door – as well as continue our growth plans!
As such, we felt the time was right to expand the team, and so we’ve taken on Richard Towler as our new sales director and Kyle Tranter as an apprentice viewer.
Richard has a wealth of experience in the industry, and we’re so pleased he’s decided to return to his North Yorkshire roots after 13 years in London.
He said: “I’ve worked in estate agency for around 13 years, most recently as a manager at London agency Marsh & Parsons.
“I've been aware of Clarke Munro and its excellent reputation in the area for some time now, and, when I met partners Wendy and Nicola, it was clear this was an exciting company with a bright future.”
Training is a real passion here at Clarke Munro, and so we’re pleased to have been able to take on Kyle as an apprentice accompanied viewer – a career path both Wendy and Nicola have experience of.
The Teesside University graduate said: “While I have no previous experience of working in an estate agents, once I sat down with Wendy and Nicola and learned more about the company’s goal and the role I would be playing, I was hooked and couldn’t wait to get started.
“I have always prided myself on my presentation in everything I do, so I’m looking forward to showing properties in their best light.”
Nicola said: “We like to start them young so we can mould them to the Clarke Munro way. Customer service is very important to us, so this lesson starts from day one, and our internal training program is intense as we want them to be the best in the business.”
“Kyle is very much a people person, so, with our intense training and his personality, we see a very bright future for him.”
Wendy added: “As well as gaining a fresh new perspective from Kyle, we’re also looking forward to drawing on Richard’s vast experience, hearing his new ideas and working together to come up with innovative ways to drive the sales department forward.”
