John Watts, managing director (sales) of Robert Watts Estate Agents has reached the milestone of celebrating 20 years as an estate agent.

Robert Watts was established in 1979 and continues to thrive as one of the largest independent agents and is now run by John along with his brother and twin sister.

John explains what it means to reach 20 years in the job: “I started working for the family businesses in January 1994 as the office junior.

“Since then I have worked in every aspect of the business and learned how the industry works and how to run a business that continues to expand and now operates out of five offices and employs more than 40 members of staff”.

“I love being an estate agent and I love the fact that every day is different.

“The job has changed massively in the last 20 years with the continuous introduction of new industry regulations and the use of modern technology.

“But I always feel that it is honest, good advice that people still look for, and that is what I and the company continue to offer. Hopefully I still have a lot more years to offer as an estate agent.”
